yeah but the problem is when they buy and gut great franshises like plant vs zombies dragon age simcity for the casual they dont check if those are released by EA
even discounting that EA has a monopoly in sport games
want to play with oficial players too bad you need to go with EA i have seen some good soccer games but the names god the names ruined the experience
both of your examples are wrong the first one is not thievery is spionage the second i ll grant it as thievery but not for the reason you think they are depriving one seat avalaibility
and thats why by definition is thievery.
well now intangibles cant be stolen lets go on the other side a mother has two children and one acuses the other of stealing his mother love the mother has not a finite quantity of love so the acusation of stealing falls flat and thats what happens to copyright infringement right now you dont have a finite quantity of ideas so the claim of stealing again falls flat
biased bad written and atagonistic so lets disregard it
*'Copyright "reformers" of course rarely like to talk about such unpleasant matters - and will steer the conversation away from economic consequences as rapidly as possible. Indeed, the they generally talk using Orwellian euphemisms - like "liberalising" or "rebalancing" copyright. It's rarely presented as an individual's ability to go to market being removed. This is what "copyright reform" looks like in practice.
this i will grant have a small point but the thing they shy away as any economic consequences of removing copyright are especulative
also one tend to speak of the negative in the hopes it will be fixed and i must say right now copyright law is broken and is in a need of a fix or replacement
we need a process lets say i live in a country where is ilegal to sell pictures of cats in unnatural poses then a company in usa sells lolcats pictures via internet should those usa companies be liable?
i think they shouldnt mix laws and to be able of prosecuting those cases it must be illegal in both countries
first mega, pirate bay, storage services and torrents
second fanfiction sites deviantart and forums
third Kickstarter, Pledgemusic, Bandcamp etc
fourth indie works
and last remove public domain so they have control of everything
Re: Hah... As if the cockroaches ever come out when the light shines
ok let me adress this first the law will treat them differently because they have less power (being relative new) than the older copyright lobbyist
second point when are going the copyright trolls learn we dont want everything free in fact i am going to buy an original movie since it is worth it and i have only to wait a bit for a price drop but when one movie is localized and i cant get it legally then piracy sounds an attractive option also why i must pay the same of a digital copy than a physical copy (or even more)
also everybody want a fast buck even copyright maximalists ... ok especially copyright maximalists but when they stomp the public rights thats when we need to made a stand after all the founders of usa were all law breakers too
the problem is that they are complete morons those burned by diablo 3 warned them
also the comments
"this wont affect me"
"get to 2013 all people has internet"
"is not drm is a feature"
of the fanboys god i was interested at first but the always online drm killed any interest in the franchise
well in my opinion i think the violence is not generated by videogames instead is generated by bad parenting i dont know maybe if a parent test a game before giving it to their children maybe if they researched the game before buying it and maybe if they talked with their children and get to know them then violence would go down
hmmm this is something that always bother me piracy is not theft since by definition theft is the dishonest taking of property belonging to another person with the intention of depriving the owner permanently of its possession
piracy doesnt remove the product from the owners
so piracy is not theft
basic economic facts you maximize sales lowering prices (you earn less per sale but you sell more)
price is important but not forget the quality
offer and demand too many of a product lower prices and a hight demand raises them (this is why piracy is so rampant there is an infinite suply but they arent lowering prices so they go to the next best offer)
Re: Why should political parties be above the law?
ok they have to obey the laws but what are the laws in this case the swedish or the US or what? for example lets say the speed limit in usa is 80 km /hr and in swedish is 100 km/hr so if they catch car at 90 km/hr then should they prosecute him?
according to the swedish law they are in the right (although maybe not so much morally but thats is another beast)
but they are afraid that if they got to trial they are going to be in a unfair disadvantage since goverments holliwood and their opponents will aply pressure
also before you acuse me of being a pirate or anticopyright i must say that i think we need copyright but also we need limits to copyright also we need something to limit the powers of copyright holders
