    Streisand Effect

    Maybe we should have a new version of the Streisand Effect for tech companies that go on the patent offensive?

    Ummm, you don't protect your digital goods by assuming that everyone is a criminal for having it first. That's not how it works, you know innocent before proven guilty.

    So, our #1 export is digital goods, how do you combat priacy if all priacy is is making a copy without destroying the original? That can be accomplished in varying ways but I think the easiest would be to create the most simple distribution network for your products and charge resonable prices for those products. That way you can focus your full attention onto creating a better distribution system, rather than the legal ways of every single country in the world.

    Free Advertising

    So a guy in a monster costume holds up a Monster Energy drink for a picture and the good old outside law frim sends a statement that says "advertising and/or selling products that are confusingly similar to Monster Energy Drink".

    I'm confused now because that's not a smimilar product that IS the product.

    I suggested this story more on the "window" reasoning than on the fact that hulu blocked skyfire and other "alternative" browsers because we all know that that has been happening for awhile now.

    I thought it was a very nice coincidence that this reasoning came along just after the MPAA tried to get new software into DVR's to create a new "window".
