"Making it less convenient to be in a homosexual relationship will encourage many to go with the heterosexual alternative."
There's an astounding level of ignorance in this comment.
Given how trivial you seem to think changing your sexuality is, if the government made it less convenient to be in a heterosexual relationship, would you just shrug your shoulders in resignation and go with the homosexual alternative?
"Obviously, products able to surreptitiously record movies while they are being shown raises substantial concerns."
Even if that were a valid concern (and it really isn't), are you seriously claiming that a movie recorded on Google Glass is an actual threat to movie revenues? I don't think you have a clue about what the result would actually look like. If fact I doubt you even understand why anti-camming efforts are so widely ridiculed.
Don't for a second claim that this is creators standing up for their rights. That's BS. This is legacy industry corporations standing up for their "right" to make as much profit as possible from the creative output of others, by putting themselves between the creators and the public using bought-for laws and made-up rights.
"There's no reason why that should have been "reported.""
As has been explained to you many times, it's not because your views may be in opposition to Mike's, it's because you're an asshole. Nobody wants to hear from you, because even when you post good info, you're still an asshole. Every comment from you has to contain a slam on Mike, because you're always an asshole.
The problem hear isn't Mike, Techdirt, other commenters, it's you. Try a change of attitude.
"Can you point to any way in which Dotcom's due process rights have purportedly been violated in the U.S.? I don't think anyone can, because it hasn't happened."
That's because so far all of the violation of due process rights has taken place in NZ by the police, GCSB and FBI. The list of violations is embarrassingly long. If you want to see such violations happen in the US you'll have to wait for a successful extradition.
