This whole music piracy thing by the recording industry is just another way of “legally extorting” $$$ from ppl who believe the hype. That is, the hype about declining sales and depriving the “already-rich” artists of even more $$$$$ due to and in the name of piracy. We all know the right name for the hype and that name is “bullsht!!! “A problem (in this case piracy) is nothing more than an opportunity turned inside out”. Macrovision really doesn’t give a sht about this so-called piracy issue. They are just practicing “good old capitalism” by capitalizing on an “opportunity” (problem) to make more $$$$. Wouldn’t you if you were Macrovision? So, to the above points, Macrovision knows the protection is gonna be cracked just like all the other so-called protection schemes. But uninformed ('casual” or 'average" Joe on the street) will be the ones that pay the price (fuked) for this protection or more appropriately 'this bullsht"!! But hey, the Average Joe is becoming more informed everyday and seeking way to by-pass the bullsh*t. As long as there are good ppl like the CD Freaks crew to keep us informed, we become less and less Average Joe’s and more and more Smart Joe’s (in the know).
