Why don't these aliens get with whatever home planet GaGa is from and I am sure we could trade licenses for music for the continuation of the planet. Then again the RIAA might not agree to such a deal as there is only life involved and not huge sums of money.
I read a few days ago an article about how Netflix's deals were coming due and while they got by with just paying hundreds of thousands to stream what they have the big studios were now demanding BILLIONS. As soon as I read that I knew this would be coming. I just didn't anticipate it so quickly. It's sad that most of the hate is being directed toward Netflix when it should be directed towards the movie studios. Aside from Linux support any problem that people have with Netflix can be tied back to old media content who don't understand that they overvalue their content and undervalue the service.
It doesn't but we can safely assume that what google was gathering was through radio and not laser. This means that what they did was not illegal wiretapping. That's my point. This is a radio broadcast and not a laser broadcast
How many places of buisness have a router, that uses lasers, and on an open frequency though? For this specific case I think we can safely assume that these open WIFI spots were using consumer brand linksys, belkin or some other radio broadcasting band as that is what %99.999 of businesses use. Am I mistaken?
My point exactly. He has a fairly strong fan base and yet nobody heard about his new album. Universal has lost sales because it sucks and letting people know about it's product. Universal should focus on their core business a little more and worry less about piracy.
Isn't this what Nelly was complaining about on Twitter when his latest album was released? He made what he felt was quality music but the label did nothing to promote him or his new record. http://www.eurweb.com/?p=68002
I checked and his label is Motown Records, part of Universal Records. Looks like his ranting was on the mark.
This is a common misconception made. I remember running into this very problem in college only instead of "influence" it was "leadership". I was denied a RA position becuase I didn't talk enough in the group interview process. What I said has great impact but no I did not just talk to hear my own voice.
Just like here more activity does not equal more influence. It can increase the chance to be influential but also increases your chance to irrelevant. I find that when people mindlessly tweet that it becomes annoying.
I don't understand this since I know these are sold in the US. They are popular in Germany and my friend who is from there found them here in St. Louis. He bought one for everyone in the group that day. How could they be sold in the US if they are banned. Unless this ban is VERY recent (last 6 months) then somewhere someone got mixed up on this.
An Australian Horror film called The Tunnel did the same thing where they sold each frame of the film to make a handsome profit and are now releasing the film through torrents everywhere in 2011. Their poster even includes the name of everyone who paid the $1 to get a frame of the movie they made. It was a genius way to fund a film honestly.
Don't these people understand that if Cablevision gives into whatever high price Fox demands that their cable bill in turn goes higher? Why sue cablevision for fighting for a fair rate to help their customers? Am I missing something here?
I would say it was more then just a conversation. She purposely set this all up because this girl stopped being friends with her daughter. She built it up like some guy was interested in her then shot her down with comments that were cruel and mean. As an adult she should have known better. This is just helicopter parenting at it's worst.
On that note though I am glad this is being dropped as it was such a stretch that it was rediculous. What she did was wrong but if she didn't break a law then she didn't break a law.
I smell a Disney publicity stunt but for what purpose? Seems odd obviously but are they coming up with a court room drama to teach kids about copyright law and this the grass roots effort getting under way? You can tell I am always suspicious.
I will never understand why more people are not upset about lobbyists being so prevelant in our government. It seem rediculous that this is allowed and that the person with the most money, gets the most lobbyists, gets the most laws passed in their favor. Just look at AT&T.
