Nothing changes the law except money.
The will of the people means nothing in our "democratic" society. People want to be able to access any media on any device at any time regardless of restriction? Too damned bad! (Note, that's not asking for the media to be free: just for the media to be unrestricted.) "The people" have no power in this world. Civil disobedience, protests…even voting have no effect. Meet the new Corrupt Overlords…same as the old Corrupt Overlords.
Why the hell should we play by their rules again? Until power is returned to “the people,” then to hell with them. If you think you can beat the system by working from within it you are naive. I am more than a walking wallet. I will continue to torrent EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF MEDIA I PURCHASE. You know why? Because then I can put it on any device and access it any time that I want.
I pay for my media, but like hell will I let some rich SOB tell me what I can do with what I’ve bought. You’ll excuse me if I don’t shed one salty tear for some already rich bastards whinging that they don’t have enough control over the hoi polloi and/’or aren’t able to extract enough money by having us repurchase the same shite over and over again.
You can have fifteen payments for the same song the day I get paid fifteen times for the same hour of work, and not a minute before!
