If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next!

Um gajo lê as notícias e fica doente:

"(...) following its recent success in the jury civil trial Capitol Records, et al v. Jammie Thomas, which resulted in a jury verdict of $222,000 in damages, many wonder who the RIAA might target next.

She believes that users who buy songs are entitled to one, and only one copy. When an individual makes a copy of a song for himself, I suppose we can say he stole a song." Making "a copy" of a purchased song is just "a nice way of saying 'steals just one copy'."

The PRS is suing the Kwik Fit Group, a car repair shop in Edinburgh, for £200,000 in damages. The case revolves around the complaint that Kwik Fit employees brought in personal radios which they played while working on cars, which could be heard by colleagues and customers. The PRS says this amounts to a public "performance" and should have entailed royalties.

The Bush Administration feels that the case [Capitol Records, et al v. Jammie Thomas, uma americana que foi condenada a pagar 222 mil dólares por ter partilhado 24 músicas - aproximadamente dois CDs de música, ou seja, cerca de 30 dólares de hipotético prejuízo para a editora] was very fair and was a positive example of our nation's laws at work.

(...) With the RIAA's powerful legal, financial, and political backers nobody can truly say what it impossible for it to accomplish. (...) it may soon be turning its attention to CD burners"

Isto só dá vontade de não comprar música. Nunca! Porque se é para pagar estas coisas que serve o dinheiro que vai do meu bolso para as editoras, acho que vou passar a ouvir só rádio e apenas fazer negócios em que não sustente nazis.
