This. You Sir will a million internets.
Why would a browser be blank? You don't honestly think that without the MPAA/RIAA that there wouldn't be anything on the internet right? Hell pretty much anything ever produced by their members and I personally wouldn't notice.
Actually I'd welcome them disappearing completely off the internet so maybe they would stop with all the horrible laws. I actually broke down and watched a Hollywood movie with the wife last night, it was horrible. Your description of "watching horrible movies from people you would never want to know about" sounds exactly like my experience last night.
No more Skyrim?! Say it isn't so!!
He did include the link, it is buried in the word "conclude". Here is the entire link;
People haven't built up a huge following using Youtube before? Justin Bieber... Adelle... Nah, they were only popular on Youtube after the big labels picked them up and made them famous right? It couldn't have happened the other way around!
Awesome argument. It makes total sense to sue dead people, you wouldn't want to set a precedent that suing dead people is pointless now would you?
Sounds to me like SOPA is just going to lead to a bunch of tech companies moving to Canada or Europe to avoid this crap. The US should start turning into an internet back water any day now. Sad for the US, good for Canada!
I recently purchases a new NAS for my home network. It allows home streaming, FTP access, AjaXplorer access, remote streaming, DLNA support, torrent support and more.
No need for an entire server these days, a $200 NAS will do the trick.
If pirates are getting rich on all this "stolen" content what is stopping the rights holders from doing the same? You'd think the actually rights holder could offer a better experience/product than a pirate could wouldn't you?
Hey, at least us Canadians might benefit from all the tech start ups moving north get away from this craziness. See it's not all bad.
Because lobbying appears to be a million times more effective at getting results than sending letters to an intern and getting a canned message in reply?
If you were correct and Youtube was/is guilty of infringement wouldn't the courts have sided with Viacom in their court case? It seems that the courts disagree with your rambling.
Now, for the sake of argument, lets say that you are correct. Are you honestly saying that society would be better off without a Youtube? You would prefer that it doesn't exist?
How do you use VPN when there are no providers?
This entire blog is a CwF offering genius. Techdirt isn't the entire business, look into it a little bit. Have you paid anything to read any of the stories posted on this blog? Yet you keep coming back for more and supporting the site with ad revenues, interesting...
You really don't get what Mike is getting at do you?
Aren't Amazon and iTunes getting a cut of the MP3 sales? Seemed pretty obvious to me from the original article. In short, they wouldn't get a cut of t-shirt sales.
Is the merch shop that hard a concept to grasp?
(This comment isn't directed at you Chuck Norris' Enemy)
Your posts in this entire thread have no point. What are you saying? Mike is bad cause people he works with are trying something new with Youtube?
You are rambling about something no one cares about. Good on Google for trying to make artists more money. I hope Google and the artists do better because of this deal. This sounds like something the record labels should have thought up.
Sounds almost like something already out there... Netflix anyone? Add in the social features you've mentioned and you've pretty much got Netflix. Now just add in more relevant streaming options and we've got a winner.
I demand tits or GTFO. You are flat.
