How it works
And Murdoch wonders why so many people resort to torrents, streaming and binaries, then bleaks like a baby when SOPA takes a hit in the US. I can only use foul language to describe this individual, so I wont.
Here is how it has worked for the last 20 or so years: Find some thing every one could use for free. Add things to it that no one asked for, then charge for it so less people have the opportunity to use it, and even less people get rich off the back of it.
Best bit, is that the well off sheep of the world just go along with it, ensuring the exclusion every one else because they are just fine mate. Just selfish and self serving.
I don't blame Sky or Murdoch when the people support him so profitable., and the BBC cowardly and spinelessly jump in to bed with him. F1 could have been on Channel 4. The BBC didn't float the idea first like they did when they wanted to save Radio 6. Oh no, behind closed doors, deal done.
The whole thing is a shameful stitch up.
