I have the exact opposite experience with a Pixma. And when it is claiming the cartridges are empty, the scanner won't even work. And the ink is outrageous. Unfortunately it also has color, which it demands or complains about. And it prints like crap with brand new OEM cartridges that no amount of alignment and tweaking will fix. Also unfortunately, you just can't keep a full color cartridge in it to keep it happy because they dry out rather rapidly...
Never mind the DRM, all the insanely numerous megabytes of "drivers" are pretty bad to begin with. You can install brand new OEM cartridges and the damn things will still claim they are empty. You can even go through the various hidden steps for correcting this which an archaeologist might find on a vendor site if lucky, and try them 10 times to no effect.
This is hereby dismissed as not a copyright case. Why are you bringing this as a copyright infringement? (Turns.) But you, gee dood don't be plagiarizing someone else's work product. And the manner in which you did it is reprehensible. Don't ever try that in my court.
Oh but this globalism isn't the true globalism, either. Just like the mythic awesome capitalism and the no such thing as a free market that have never existed anywhere ever. Capitalism as practiced has been highly worthy of hate long before and concept of globalism in this sense ever arose. People didn't need to make claims about it. Just like people who suffered under really badly done socialism or anything else.
But poor Hatch and his 'I don't know about you, but I demand this of several major governments'. Maybe he will be saved if the whole pile of dreck is tossed.
As distributed as you make things, it's always going to be a thousand times easier to just distribute the attack a little more.
Of course i can't wait for the feds to identify who is doing this and charge them accordingly. It would be stunning to see some laws and and power applied to something that is actually harmful and wrong on the internet.
First off, it isn't the US government's to control. Again you don't even understand what being sort of theoretically in control of ICANN actually controls... which isn't "the internet".
And no, it's more like stop claiming to be doing something you aren't really doing anyway because the appearance of impropriety emboldens others.* "Rolling over" - you see things only as an authoritarian can. Too bad all the authoritarians just can't get along, they are all exactly the same.
* For example, pretend we stopped being assholes and murdering people with drone strikes. But 30 years later, we maintain drone bases all over the world, even though we don't actually fly drones for these purposes or even have drones on the bases. Just a couple of people to sweep the floors. But you would maintain those bases just to provoke other idiots. Good plan!
