    Good and Bad here

    With an OPEN internet and being able to wonder around and find Almost anything.
    Videos of Idiots. Pictures and Dogs Humping..
    With a bit of video editing, or Just Capture 1 Picture in a Video game...
    You can SAY anything. and have Proof..

    With the Covert Ops of the past..its HARD for the people to know What has and have NOT been done in our OWN NATION..

    It would be nice if our OWN gov would let us Know what they have FAILEd to do.

    Long ago, there are a country that demanded that the people Live by the Rules in a book, derived and read to them by a representative...
    The books were expensive..and only those in the Church could read and interpret them..

    Until the advent of the printing press, and making TONS of copies. And the Church having a FIT about it..

    1. didnt know a Public LAW was Private..
    2. Didnt know a Public servant had any rights to Privacy.
    3. without a signature on the annotations, how do you know Whom to pay and how much.. And how do you keep records of what was read and recorded...

    I love the concept of EDITING the law..

    aND IN 1980

    When a computer cost 1/3 the price of a CAR..
    When electronic in your home amounted to a TUBE based TV and a Toaster...
    And 1/3 of the USA wasnt even Born..
    Computers of the time...Atari, Commodore, Intel, IBM, Compact, Kaypro, Apple 1
    Operating systems? DOS, DOS, DOS, DOS
    Loading system, TAPE DRIVES or Cartridge loading..

    Cost of a HARD DRIVE?? $$MILLIONS

    Smart phones and PADS are 10-100 times as much power, in your hand.

    wOULD IT BE FUN...

    It would be interesating to find out how much this 2nd and 3rd party are getting to track Illegal copies...
    Then send that to the Producer..and show him what he is paying for..

    Anyone get the hint??

    Scanning the net, and collecting data...IS NOT FAST..
    Running around chat rooms to stop Suicides? could help someone.. Help someone get DRUGS to mellow them out, and the side affects are??? Suicide.

    Privacy is a 2 way street..
    IF you want OUR INFO, we get to HAVE YOURS..
    Every paper, fax, Net, Promise you make..

    WHO do you think they are monitoring??

    you would think..

    That the broadcasters would WANT to make things cheaper for themselves..
    THEY DONT..they hold all the cookies and get Paid from Every side..REALLY..
    Long ago Cable had a good idea over the RELAY stations that Broadcast around the country..

    The corps could install 2 Sats to cover ALL the USA..and Broadcast for free..and cover 80% of ALL of the Americas...

    The MOST expensive thing to to PROTECT yourself, Make things HARD to that no one can steal your product..
    But if you give it away FREE...its very simple..and COSTS LESS..

    LEts look at this from the cable/sat side.."asif"

    HOw to drop Excess channels..
    Let people select the channels they want and pay for ONLY the ones they View.
    Considering customers watch about 20 channels out of 200+..
    90% of those channels are Paid under $0.50 to show..

    Cable and Sat can monitor WHICH channels are watched..They know how many people are watching Which channels...
    Cable and Sat, could CHARGE the Broadcaster, insted of the consumer...If they dont get enough Viewers to PAY for the channel..

    Re: Re: TRUE statement

    In the USA, where is the market?? everywhere..

    In africa, where is the market?? Who buys the music created locally..?

    How much is really recorded..

    It would be/might be a small market, but its NOT worth a multimillion dollar setup..

    Also that the area is not Using ALLOT of tech for playback of the music...Lucky if they have a cassette player in a car.. There is Little to market in africa TO africa..

    TRUE statement

    "willingness of private capital to fund production of original cultural works, ..."

    Think about that...PRIVATE capital making money from Cultural songs OTHERS have creates...
    this says nothing of giving money to the that they would MAKE more songs..

  • Jul 9th, 2015 @ 3:11pm

    iTS FUNNY..

    Corps LOVE paying employees, to make Things FOR the company...
    They HATE PAYING a company or person to USE something that works better then what THEY made..

    They will wait for the end of CR and TAKE something before paying for it..
    And if you read the Employee contracts, ANYTHING/EVERYTHING made by the employee, even off hours...belongs to the Corp..

    But Copyrights were made for the protect them..

    And if you really want a strange tech 20-30 years ago, had advances they STILL arnt using..

  • Jul 1st, 2015 @ 1:05pm

    I will say this again

    I REALLY think..
    that someone is trying to bankrupt our cities and towns..
    With all this STUPID crap..

    Cops that go against the law and do STUPID THINGS..Sue the city, and the cop just quits and runs.

    Sue services that are not responsible to OTHERS, like a newspaper/TV/CABLE/.. not responsible to adverts...
    More money to Lawyers then to the problem..

    It all ends up, just adding money OWED by the tax payers..
    Is this a reason to Justify raising taxes??

    Why arnt we holding people RESPONSIBLE?? is there some reason NOT to sue a mayor/police officer/Judge PERSONALLY??

    Then as an AC' disprove it..
    Windows passwords and other codes are easy to pull out with programs available around the net..

    Many programs with/without DMCA, go look at STEAM..its a whole system..

    Encrypting a system is abit dangerous unless you have a First recovery disk and are willing to do a full reinstall and Encrypt again..
    Also, we are talking about the common user. NOT people with abit more advanced knowledge..

    Show me whats wrong here?

    Good AV programs Check themselves FIRST..
    Yes you can HIDE things under windows..and there are simple ways to find it(not to decode it, just find) And the Border patrol has the RIGHTS to ask you to OPEN IT...

    Get a hint please..That you wont be using windows to hide things.. And most advanced users can do allot more..

  • Jun 24th, 2015 @ 1:50pm


    AV software is generally for 1 use..AV protection..
    It does have ANTI encryption FIND Virus.

    The only reason to Goto the AV programs is to find ways to bypass it..Thats what hackers DO..
    There is an easier way..ASK MS..
    MS has pre-authorized hidden programs..Wonder why they didnt ask MS??

    The Only reason for this, is to install CRAP on your machine.
    Something we already have problems with and WHY we try to protect ourselves..

    Also...If you are VERY smart..and encrypt your machine, you are not going to use WINDOWS... They even warn you about it..that recovery isnt easy,or even possible in many cases.

    Encrypting your machine means you are NOT doing standard things...its a pain and hassle if you are a gamer. they have their OWN data checks and encryption, and verifications, and adding encryption, just confuses things on your machine.

    Only good thing to use encryption on is a data server, Mail server or the like..Otherwise its not worth the hassle.

    Wouildnt it be interesting

    Wouldnt it be fun to run into a city and install Fiber to EVERY PLACE...
    to SELL to the competitor..
    WE do the work and LEASE/SELL it to the other guys..and they finish the job.

  • Jun 23rd, 2015 @ 1:22pm

    Lets say something stupid

    A contract was made for a franchise..
    The City read it? had a LAWYER READ IT??
    Or did they Only listen to the person speaking, and SING on the dotted line?

    WHO here as a citizen, understands contracts?

    If its our responsibility to be responsible for signing contracts, WHY in HELL isnt the CITY reading the fine print?

  • Jun 16th, 2015 @ 12:45pm


    AND WHO can hold a politician to his words?? Promises?

  • Jun 3rd, 2015 @ 1:18pm


    "Ignorance of the law, is no excuse"
    Is a very interesting idea, concept..If you could know ALL the laws, rules, regulations, you would be surprised at some of them.

    WHAT in a trade agreement, could there be to HIDE?
    Is trying to change LAWS in other nations, legal?
    Is trying to FORCE another nation, to DO something LEGAL?
    Is Bypassing Legal channels, Legal??
    What is it about independent, individual, state, federal, Country, Rights and Laws...that they want to Overrule??

    These Agreements have been running around for years..and years..and the only thing advancing them, is Paying OUR representatives MONEY to pass this garbage..

    Why does it take YEARS to pass a trade agreement unless its Full of garbage?
    Why are the only ones INVOLVED in the agreement, Highly paid, corporates?

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:


    1. They could Hide money as easily..
    Goto a bank as a person and get a second account in a different name..TRY IT..
    2. How many Lawyers show up for a Person? when Corp money isnt behind them?
    3. searching a Persons home is as Easy as THINKING something is happening, compared to Corps, and you HAVE TO KNOW and PROVE it before you even enter the door.

    I have to mention..
    WHERE is the invasion INTO our country that forces the military to Wonder off into other nations, to BLOW UP, MORE civilians then terrorists?

    Fighting for all humanity and democracy, in other nations is an interesting thought, and means we have MISSED allot of wars to wage it in..

    All I see, fighting in other nations is only Pushing Corporate yearnings, with a CHEAP military force, that THEY dont pay for. Esp. when they arnt paying Taxes.

  • May 12th, 2015 @ 1:21pm

    Only a few reasons for this


    Really why is this? Corp mentality. the USA has bought/created tech and made tons of strange copyrights.
    Also, we want to make SALES of some products in the EU...That the EU does not want/like...Like Bleached chicken.

    USA tech..and being able to Force them into litigation for years..restricting any competition..
    Can you see the USA restricting about 30 Copyrights for cellphones from being used in the EU? it would turn most smart phones into Pads..
    Its called being a BULLY..
