Finaly somebody got it right. Why dont these companys that see infringment on some percieved threat as free advertising instead cause more free word of mouth is free word of mouth, which imho is always a good thing.
To both of you, I never said that it shouldn't be interesting to others. The intent was that I thought the title of the article was confusing, and that I don't care about college sports at all. No I didn't go to an SEC college.
Why am I not surprised that the first comment is from an exec of the music industry. I look back to Radiohead and the album that they sold for the price of "pay what you want" that seemed to work. I also look back to the 86 year old woman who lived in an assisted living facility whom also had Alzheimers, did not own a computer, did not know what a computer was let alone who she was. Yet the music industry felt it necessary to sue her for downloading music files. If it takes the downfall of the music industry for something better to replace it, then so be it.
As a former Best Buy employee we were not on commission, not even so much as a cent of a sale goes toward the employee. As far as the pushing of Best Buys Performance Service Plan, employees are negatively reprimanded on paper if they start to not sell them in numbers that management prefers (my current employer Sports Authority does not care much if we dont sell their product plan in numbers that they would prefer) and are eventually moved around the store into an area that the employee will better 'fit' into. The only kind of kick back that any employee receives from Best Buy is from stopping theft and from the stores bi annual shrink audit, and even then its not much.
Take this angle into your thought. Lets say you wrote, legally published, and legally copyrighted your book. Then some religious group bought a copy of your book and removed parts that they found questionable and dispicable. Then they republished you book selling it to a specfic group, with you getting none of the profits from any of the sales, let alone none of the royalites. Now I want you to tell me you wouldn't get extremly mad about that???
what do you meen that satalite companys lie. they dont lie, (i was being sarcastic). Satalite companys have been lieing to their customers for years and years about everything, from channel linup to actual priceing and the actual price they will see on their bill every month, its just that they only own the satalites in space and and about 90% of the communication process involved then charge phony fees and tell the customer that the goverment is forceing them to charge them. lies, lies, and more lies, thats all iv ever hear from satalite companys.
but i still have a problem in this, in that this game banning whirlwind thing is NOT the states job, but it IS MY job as a PARENT. So i say stay out of my hair and let me do MY job as a PARENT, not the job of some bogus piece of legislation.
