I also got the impression he was agreeing with my position. However; his response looked like he thought I was supporting Blackberry’s ridiculous position that Netflix should be required to write an app for them.
I was suggesting if Balckberry wanted a Netflix app so badly, Blackberry sould write it themselves. I was also suggesting that Netflix might be willing to provde technical help. Finally I said that Netflix wasn’t writing the app themselves because it didn’t make economic sense for Netflix.
I’m sorry I confused you so badly perhaps you should work on your reading comprehension.
If Blackberry went to Netflix and said we want to develope an app so our customers can use your service, I’m pretty sure Netfilx would work with them. Instead they whine that Netflix isn’t doing something that doesn’t make economic sense for Netflix.
One of the things YouTube did with their comments that to this day bothers me is the change they made to the thumbs up/down counters. In the comment section it only shows how many thumbs up a comment gets, but always shows zero thumbs down. So when someone sets up multible account to puff up their (sometimes vile) comments it looks like everyone agrees with them.
What we need is for someone the FBI is trying to recruit to document the whole thing. How they encouraged them, offered to provide the material, gave them a target, … the whole shebang. Then before the FBI can issue a press release they go to the press and report how they a lowly private citizen uncovered a plot to create a terriorist organization on American soil.
There was an episode where the police commisioner when thru Toody and Muldoon’s patrol area and was appalled by the number of minor infractions. They were told to get their area cleaned up or else. They couldn’t bring themselves to write tickets for trivial stuff and were to be sent to patrol the docks. Before this could happen the police statistician pointed out that while their area was the worse in minor infractions there were almost no major crimes. It turned out the people in the nieghborhood worked with Toody and Muldoon to keep there neighborhood safe.
It seems that Nat Hiken knew back then what the police of today have forgotten, fear doesn’t breed respect, respect breeds respect.
“Sony might have failed to properly license a clip, and that means "the entire copyright system is broken”?”
Let’s try an anology to see if it helps you. Your city has a law about barking dogs being a nuisance (copyright law). Your dog sometimes barks in the afternoon (accidental or personal infringement). Your next door neighbor (Sony) who is connected in the city government complains. You’re told you have to pay a $100 fine for every time your dog barked and if happens again your dog will be put down. While your neighbor is complaining about your behavior, he lets his dog out every night to do its business and it barks up a storm every time. When you complain your Sony, ahem neighbor is told to pay a $10 dollar fine and to not do it again. They tearfully promise this EVERY time they do it and they never face the consequences they demand of everyone else.
On a side note before this whole brouhaha about the “Interview” came about I hadn’t planned to see it. I still won’t see it because if I do the terrorists and Sony will win.
I always thought the right of first refusal meant that if you matched the price being offered then you got to buy it. So if they had been willing to match the top bid of $40,500 they would have gotten it.
If they say you have to give them the first chance to buy if at a price of their choosing, then that’s not the right of first refusal it’s returning a security deposit.
You’re correct there could still be a trial either for Federal civil rights violation or even a murder trial since a grand jury investigation wouldn’t cause double jeopardy problems. However; he still hasn’t been exonerated. I am pissed that Wilson supporters keep equating not indicted with not quilty.
