SirDavidGuy: It is NOT the same. If I came into your house and stole $500, then I would have the $500 and you would not. That’s stealing. If you come over to my place with a DVD and I make a copy. You have your copy, I have mine, and the studio hasn’t lost anything either except the ARTIFICIAL scarcity they have foolishly let themselves become dependent on. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with copying. I do think there’s something wrong with price fixing, bribery, third party taxation, selfish agenda setting on the global scale, and hauling Norweigan 15-year-olds into court for their entire teenage years. Hollywood is out of control and needs to be reigned in. They’ve bought the most powerful nation on earth and used it to bully all the others in line. They’ve stolen our public heritage by assassinating the public domain. Oh this is war alright and copying teenagers are NOt the aggressor. Now, I buy, rent, AND copy digital media. I support the artists I like and their craft. But if copying can take some of the profit margins away from the fat cats in suits perhaps we can pare down their influence to a more reasonable level. If that doesn’t work, I think we should boycott the entire entertainment industry across the board until they back off and return what’s ours: the public agenda, legislative influence, public domain, rational copyright law, due process in revealing internet users’ identities, national sovreignty, fair use… The list goes on. Hear that Mr. Valenti? Are you sufficiently “educated” or do I need to make a trailer?
