Technically, they aren't being evil...

If I already own the cartridge, then don't I already have a licence to play the game? If I want to play Pokémon LeafGreen on my phone, I'm not depriving anyone of their money if I've already bought the game.
I guess it depends on how big it is.
And if there's one thing that I hate more than anything else when I'm reading, it's someone reading over my shoulder Adobe!
There's a big problem trying to get them to open the bomb bay doors.
It follows that if Twitter is suing the US government, then the number of court orders they have received is not zero.
Even if they can't disclose the exact number of court orders, could they disclose a ball-park figure? Something like "In 2013, Twitter received somewhere between 15,345.5 and 15,346.5 court orders."
Then I reserve the right to charge them for my time at the usual hourly rate. Why the hell should I have to read through 400 pages of legaleese just to use my own hardware?
I thought we already had that? Why on earth would there be legislation making backups illegal?
I can't imagine a more useless type of encryption.
I'm not saying that he's making it up, but fantastic claims like his need some sort of corroborating evidence.
I can't really do a worse job can I?
It also causes immigrants to come into the country to claim benefits and steal your job!
If those tubes are pneumatic, then I'm all for it!
(Conceivably, if the tubes were large enough, you could use them to transport people, Futurama style...)
It's for downloading large amounts of "research material".
And Google, Apple, et al stopped implementing encryption completely. What's to stop me from running my own encryption program?
If he were to make encryption illegal, only criminals would have any privacy.
I dread to think how many down votes I'm going to get...
There's loads of it up there on the moon.
It worked with piracy didn't it?
It's still a level of journalism above a Daily Mail article. Have you seen some of the stuff they publish? It's tough to find an article there that doesn't have spelling and grammar mistakes.
Well you've obviously got something to hide, or you wouldn't be encrypting it!
Encryption just by itself seems to be regarded as suspicious by law enforcement bodies now, with absolutely no justification for that suspicion. The UK government fears encryption so much that they passed a law making it legal to compel a suspect to give up encryption keys.
That was also my interpretation of the proposed "law".
How innovative! No one has ever done that before. How do they keep coming up with these fresh ideas?
Why do they keep lying when they are so easily caught out?
But how long do the reader writer machines last for?
And how much will this app cost? If it's anything like other dating websites, women will be allowed to join for free while the guys have to stump up money.
Blizzard sold me a key for £5. What are these other companies making their keys out of?
They're doing "sacred" work.
I guess when you're a member of gods chosen race then everything you do is moral.
To make an inferior copy of the old WAP network?
One of the few defences against the Picard Maneuver...
Do they mean a Kindle?
All these fish puns are giving me a haddock.
I trout it very much.
Because this is more fun than using the "Send Corrections" link :)
My first thought was Dick Tracy. Maybe I'm getting old.
Not much chance of that with secret courts, secret warrants, secret evidence and the government going around conducting unlawful searches and seizures.
Then I started getting flashbacks to when I was fixing websites in the 90's.
Like a pirate on a VPN? I don't want my name added to a government watch list!
I don't think that the European Commission has completely considered the knock on effects of what they are asking.
Answers on a postcard please.
What's a commentard to post now?
"We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery." - Sajid Javid.
If people were going into the National Gallery and taking a photo of a painting to enjoy at home, nothing would have been stolen. People that visit piracy sites aren't taking the thing, they are taking a copy of the thing.
Alien Vs Predator Requiem was better.
The "still in development" games are a bit hit and miss. Don't Starve was totally awesome, but some of the others are next to totally unplayable.
Nigger is in there, but Nigga is not. The list apparently penalises spelling.
And since when was clitoris a dirty word?
Sounds like the police are overstating their powers again. They really don't like peaceful citizens with cameras do they?
We look for the big silver H on its forehead of course!
Goodbye Bronze League! Platinum here I come!
