If 99% of the people don't know what a torrent is, then what does the producer have to worry about?
talk about a very expensive case of projection! Projection is when someone gets very upset and emotional accusing others of doing something (ie stealing his work) when it is really a subconcious reaction of guilt for doing that same thing (ie. stealing from the soldier).
Yea, and there was a social network around 1994 called firefly.com. I used to like it (i was 14), until I realized they had the username and password in the URLs of the pages. It that is the same firefly, I could understand why they are having a hard time understanding technology.
Since there is a ripe possibility that someoene could have switched on a kid's webcam when they were changing and therefore naked, maybe the school's administration should get child pornography charges slapped on them even though they didn't know the kid was going to be naked before they activated their webcam? Perhaps the FBI should do a sweep of all of their hard drives.
I'm thinking I could start a good bakery business with this model. I will refrain from selling any pastries or bread while it is fresh, but instead wait for 28 days until it is completely stale. That way there will be less demand for the bread so there will be plenty for the customers to buy immediately, thereby providing a better customer experience.
comes not out of the millions of dollars that the studios will surely lose if those 4 minutes of Twilight are distributed, but that people are going to be too scared of being thrown in jail to go to the theatre for events like birthday parties or anything where someone might want to film their friends and family. I'm certainly not going to be going to the theatres for a while.
I'm telling ya--go to Cafepress.com and you'll see that user-generated Twilight shirts are a large part of their current business model. I'll bet that this is a large part of this because whether or not it is genuine copyright infringement, that is probably the most threatened aspect of the shirts appearing on Zazzle.
Thats funny--I have never seen Twilight but I figured they "got it" since they openly allow (and even encourage) users in Zazzle's competitor, Cafepress, to make Twilight-themed T-shirts. I wonder if Cafepress is involved somehow.
I agree with this. This is a great site to have a discussion. How fun. I also love taking pictures. Do you want to see my pictures that Techdirt wouldn't allow on the site? Click here-->just kidding :)
