The Pirates will win regardless. They'll use this as ammunition for why copyright must be reformed and use it as justifications of sticking it to "the man".
Either way, the Pirates win.
Inb4 people bitch at EA for being incompetent yet again.
ARE THEY FUCKING MENTAL?
Even if Universal get away with this, this is just going to be further fuel for the fire when we call them out. It's obvious and clear as paper. Let's make sure they'll remember their idiocy like how a traumatized high-schooler remembers being bullied.
You know, I just gotta ask the logic in having this plan where the ISPs are forced to act as judge, jury, and executioner.
People will leave after seeing that the ISPs are mistreating them more than they already are, and soon their money will fall down the drain. If that happens, I think it's only fair they go and force the MAFIAA to pay up for their lost money, since it was their idea in the first place.
... These guys see how people reacted to SOPA? How can saying that this is the Son of SOPA be a good thing? This is bad PR.
Disney should just make the Ultimate Collectors Boxset with every single Disney Movie currently made and be done with it. They'll get their money from the obsessed, and people will be happy knowing that they just got every single Disney Movie.
But nope. We have to deal with bullshit like this that propagates piracy. My advice, Disney? Don't come crying when you realize that this decision led to a boost in Bittorrent downloads or views of full length Disney movies on Youtube. You brought that shit on yourself.
Is it okay if we make Terrorism the new Godwin's Law?
