This is also how they bust file shares cause since they get their media free and don't pay for it, they gain a commercial benefit for themselves. Rightsholder love German courts, especially the one in Cologne.
I see, just because I think their hapless and damaging efforts do NOTHING to solve their problem, I automatically must be one of those stealing (no need to sugarcoat it with the word "pilfer" which is just as wrong) their product, right? You shills are pathetic.
Given what has become a gargantuan number of notices because of gargantuan reposts, the system of yesteryear is simply not able to keep up with today's realities
Given the gargantuam number of content the industry just cannot charge as much for it as in the system of yesteryear. To keep up with today's realities they need to offer there content in a timely manner, for a reasonable price without restrictions. If they don't, no takedown process ever will increase sales.
We're used to politicians being clueless jackasses but why the hell can't Google send someone a little more apt to debate these morons? You can bet I'd have a snide remark for his sarcastic "Oh? Those are all legitimate sites?" that would make him look stupid enough to think about trying pulling this stunt again.
Even if you weren't being sarcastic (and a jackass), I totally agree with you: it's their shit so they should get the burden placed on them rather than the tech companies. After all, you don't blame AT&T when someone uses their phone lines to commit crimes.
