News from the FUTURE! I’m a time traveller too. Alllllright!
I’ve been saying that since the dawning of the issue of music/movie piracy. Lower the price and you’ll get back some [not all of course] of the customers who found salvation in music P2P solutions. Ah. There will never be a real, hardcore solution to piracy other than the entire rebuilding of modern ethics and morality, but, you can soften the damage by giving us what we are demanding. Low Priced, Reasonably high quality CD’s and DVD’s that we can make copies of so our originals are always available. A product like a CD/DVD shouldn’t be susceptible to scratches, and then not be free to replace, I’ve never seen it happen that a company replaces a scratched CD for free, let alone a DVD. Anyway, that judge will probably never view another Music or Movie related trial for the rest of his career.
I’ve heard “There is no silver bullet” as a phrase for everything from piracy to runs in stockings [I’m an information broker, I hear a lot of garbage] but there is one silver bullet to ending a way of life, and thats to counter the opinions of the money makers and direction takers.
