You know, I could easily get a video camera and record what ever I want with it. Perhaps, that should be illegal, too, along with the right to take still pictures, record sound, and take freaking notes on paper!
What's next? not being allowed to look at copyrighted content without the distributors, by law, using brain-hacking technology to remove any memory of the content?
Just think, if they could do that, odds are pirates could use the same technology to reproduce contents before deletion, or possibly to undue deletion altogether.
As long as the industry remains stubborn, the fight may never end.
