MaudlinMutantMollusk: You know... I voted for Obama/but I'm getting pretty damned tired of the bullsh*t coming out of his administration//not that it couldn't be worse
James!: I agree but for different reasons.
DanZero: [encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 259x194]It's not so much prison as it is fines, subby
lacrossestar83: Oh great, another "all copyright is bad" thread
Marcus Aurelius: What should be the real crime here is Hollywood bribing the government into making our lives a living hell.
Corvus: Well subby Holden is actually working on making court minimums for non-violent crimes go away and shortening time for drug use and it is also support by many conservative groups. But that's real politics and not a trollerific partisan headline so you won't see it greened here.
you are a puppet: So you're not sentenced to a day, a week, a month, or even a year?/Because felonies are punishable by over a year imprisonment, heh heh
tenpoundsofcheese: Thanks Obama.This is NOT the CHANGE we were HOPING for.
alienated: jjorsett: California's are so crowded that we're releasing 10,000 dangerous non violent prisoners back into the communities.ftfy. Oh, the state is trying to get around that by sending them to private prisons instead.

Nadie_AZ: Could this BE any more stupid?
A Dark Evil Omen: Oh great, another "any lengths to protect a failing business model, including throwing more people in jail for nothing" thread.Idiot.
Mikey1969: OK, who is the target here? The person illegally hosting the streaming material, or the person watching it, who may not know that the stream is not legit?Also, there should be some kind of clause that if shiat is just sitting around and there is demand for it, if the owners don't eventually get off of their asses and make it available, it should be legal. I'm sick of wanting to see something that I know should be available, but not having it anywhere online.
jjorsett: alienated: jjorsett: California's are so crowded that we're releasing 10,000 dangerous non violent prisoners back into the communities.ftfy. Oh, the state is trying to get around that by sending them to private prisons instead.The "non-violent" ones (in reality, just those whose last conviction was for a non-violent crime, regardless of any earlier murders, rapes, robberies, etc. on their rap sheets, and regardless of whether the most recent one was a plea bargain down from something violent) are already gone. The court said, "Not good enough" and we're now ejecting the truly bad dudes. Even Jerry Brown, Mr. Anti-incarceration himself, fought this latest order, to no avail.
lacrossestar83: Nice! Now tell me the one about how copyright causes people to not write their own songs, or "kill innovation" or whatever. That's my favorite!
Popcorn Johnny: - Streaming a broadcast TV show should be legal
lacrossestar83: Popcorn Johnny: - Streaming a broadcast TV show should be legal- Streaming live sporting events should be legal, as long as they're being shown on broadcast TV somewhere- Streaming of PPV events should be illegal-Streaming movies that have not been shown on broadcast TV should be illegal-Streaming shows that are shown on HBO, Shotwime, etc should be illegal until after they are syndicatedWhile technically typically* I'd side with the "copyrighted telecast" stuff, the Chicago Blackhawks' old owner changed my mind. The NFL's blackout rules weren't helping win me over, either.
clkeagle: why an industry full of otherwise intelligent, tech-savvy types can't come up with a consumer-friendly-yet-profitable digital distribution system is completely beyond me
12349876: Tons of great art has been created by reimagining and reinterpreting the classics like Dickens and Shakespeare just to name two giants. You know Disney will continue to fight their asses off to make sure no one can ever do that with Mickey Mouse.
