They have to say something to the investors. I'm all for saying what they want to hear while doing what is better for the company in the long run. (I'm actually against selling your soul.. Ahem, going to the stock market at all but that's another issue.)
Still, I believe they could be pounding the copyright monopoly harder and louder. You know, don't blame the price hikes on anybody, just show hard data with the absurd the MAFIAA wants to charge for their content just because they can. Use your position as means to rise awareness and make people hate copyright with passion.
But then again, Netflix is ripe for becoming the established player instead of the disruptive one...
Let's recap a little bit: what are laws meant for? They are a product of people who represent the citizenry based on behaviors society believes to be punishable or something.
Then the DOJ loses a case but because the little tyrants behind it don't like the outcome the DOJ pushes for laws nobody asked for that will most likely affect Constitutional rights people fought hard to have and were written in a way that protect even foreigners from Government overreach.
So instead of having what I first described we have laws being written by a few corporate interests or the interests of a few paranoid, megalomaniac tyrants that serve everybody EXCEPT the citizenry. Awesome.
They succeeded rather well when they rebooted Batman to his last trilogy (although I'd say that the second movie was just pure gold). Then they decided the same formula applied to everybody else. And we got a goddamn Superman that seems to be suffering of severe depression instead of the one built on the comics that used bright blue and red as a symbol of hope and justice. I can't wait to see a dark, gritty Wonder Woman. Or.. Heck, screw them.
We can say a word or two regarding this about Spiderman and how.. Meh, never mind.
Agreed. If I ever use it I'll go for cookies or something like that. But even smoked it seems to be better than tobacco. Heck, even producing the goddamn leaves do a ton of damage to the ones harvesting.
I have yet to see any problems with adults put aside people who are genetically prone to addiction. On the other hand there is evidence that tobacco is addicting regardless of genetics. And I have yet to see any marijuana use die from cancer. Granted the oldest use I know has been 'stoned' for 30 years now and the average is about 10 years of use but so far none of them suffered any breath capacity loss or stuff like that.
Sarcasm detector failure detected. He's commenting on women just like the NBC.
Ahem. If I want something live I want something live, the criticism is welcome. They don't have the right to delay something because reasons. They can offer the delayed option for those who value their awesome commentary but at the very least offer a real live event.
Tobacco. Pffft. This addicting piece of health hazard is allowed while a much better thing, marijuana, is forbidden. They should be seeing this as a business opportunity to move away from tobacco and grow, produce marijuana cigars or something.
Does the Government bear the fees for the defendant and then charge the plaintiff if the charges are meritless? No? Then it's more of the same. And note that there's no mention of helping people protect their fair use rights in an easier venue but only about 'small copyright claims'.
Prenda, Malibu et all are feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
