If they want to charge me $30 to watch the movie at home GREAT! I'll save $10 on popcorn, $10 on Soda and I'll invite 10 people over too who will also save at least $20 each making the movie a total net savings of at least $200!
Then I'll charge them $5 for popcorn and $5 for sodas and I'll make 70 bucks a movie!
I've been boycotting Sony products since their rootkit debacle of yesteryear... looks like it's time for Samsung to join the list.
I just wish the ignorant masses cared enough about their privacy and rights to pay attention to what's going on around them and help me vote with my wallet. Instead they probably own three playstations and four samsung tvs
This story is the first time I've felt compelled to add my 2 cents to the argument. I'm an avid reader of Techdirt, Consumerist, Slashdot, etc and this is the only time I've felt I HAD to register and provide a point of view.
I grew up on a farm. I'm 33 years old and I grew up in Iowa on a farm with farms all around me.
Monsanto was whispered like "he who shall not be named" in farming communities. God forbid you did something to piss off Monsanto, then you couldn't get feed or seed or the chemicals necessary for daily life on the farms of America.
Monsanto alfalfa and GMO crops are going to literally be the end of the family farm, they're intent on suing everyone who isn't using their products into the dirt, god forbid you wanted to save seed! That's a mortal SIN in Monsanto's eyes.
The bullshit and patent abuse that goes on in the agricultural businesses is tantamount to family farmer genocide.
I strongly recommend you guys contact some state representative and senators and urge them to stop allowing corporations to strip rights from family farms. It's too late for any of the members of the House or Senate of any Midwestern state, they're so deep into the pockets of big agribusiness they likely share the same blood supply.
I pray, with every fiber that this is the straw that breaks Monsanto's back and begins the downfall of their pitiful existence.
That's all the rant I have in me for this afternoon, Sorry
