Re: aggravated copyright violation

But probably, like bankers, they are considered too important to jail by the DoJ!

The RIAA will soon get that changed, what with the TPP anti piracy pact or whatever it's called. Which would be like a Super SOPA, Obama appointed the heads of the DoJ to RIAA lawyers so it isn't far fetched to see them make exceptions to their 'retroactive immunity' and throw them in the slammer.

That said, if the immunity does hold strong against that, the RIAA would just bombard record fines on them, $450.000.00 per infringement will quickly send that NSA budget into deep red, but not to worry, the president would just give them more and more to spy on everyone with.

Maybe the NSA is the goldmine the RIAA were looking for.

"If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear"

Try saying that to big bubba in prison for me, oh yeah Prison, the safest place to be, and you still get raped. go jump off the nearest dock please, you won't be missed with that mentally retarded phrase.

"If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear"

That also reminds me, you won't have a problem with handing over your birth certificate, driving license, and social security details, bank details, medical details, DVLA details, Tax details, Computer hard drives and USB drives.

What's that? you actually value your privacy? you must be a FUCKING Terrorist! Get outta here!

Re: Didn't we all know this.

and consumers are desperate to downgrade.

Which customers are these? last time I checked, only nerds could reinstall an older operating system anyway, unless they're taking their PCs in to be downgraded.

The vast majority probably wouldn't even notice if Windows 3.1 was installed.

When your power is down, good luck playing your console whether it needs a net connection or not...

Power supplies are taken for granted in most parts of the world, Internet however, is still a luxury to even first world citizens. Some parts are still stuck on dial up, good luck explaining to them that you are screwed and have to go buy a PS4 instead.

Dish boss on ad-skipping service: 'I don’t want to kill ads'

Anonymous Сoward

Re: Advertising

If you advertise reasonably, I really wouldn't care. The problem is sheer greed at expense of the thing I purchased. Long adverts, multiple adverts, adverts smack in the middle of important broadcasts and events, adverts showing over my programs, adverts talking over my program (i.e. any jokes in the end credits are lost), adverts sponsoring the weather (and mentioning it all the time), adverts sponsoring programs (and having splashscreens and even - URGH - product placement in them), having the adverts louder than the program, having the adverts unskippable (on DVD, etc.), having the adverts be annoying / attention grabbing (GoCompare / Cilit Bang, though the Cilit Bang man has learned to tone his voice down a bit now)

Now come on! You cannot mention Go Compare WITHOUT mentioning that sorry excuse for an ad called Confused Com screeching at me with a butchered version of the YMCA song, Stephen Hawking PLEASE BRING A BLACKHOLE AND SUCK THEM UP PLEASE!!

Re: ban the AC option

@AC Tuesday 29th January 2013 23:08 GMT

No, and there is absolutely no need for the AC option, you're probably still thinking about that risk thing, but it's all in your head, only El Reg know who you are anyway, and they also know who you are when posting as AC, don't kid yourself, you have NO PRIVACY if that's your belief.

Also El Reg know nothing of WHO you are, unless you actually use your Real Name for your Reg handle? And no I don't use ShitBook or sorry, I mean DataBook as that's all it's there for to hand info to Suckersberg and co.

Anyone else read that as "allowing RFID tags to communicate with marketers and other unscrupulous merchants"? I sincerely hope not! I don't want to be tracked in public, having the government do it via CCTV + ANPR is bad enough, but the private sector? get out.

Re: 2,100 sex offenders now have more time on their hands

Do you think I should just ignore ill informed opinion or do you think I should share what little knowledge I have gained through a few minutes of research?

By all means share, but at least use your real El Reg handle, using AC isn't a very good thing reputation wise.

Re: 2,100 sex offenders now have more time on their hands

It depends upon the offence. Piss in a public place, in the middle of the day, in front of children, then you might end up on it However it will be a level 1 offence. Nobody will be able to find your name via a search. You will not be banned from playing games online. You will not be banned from living near schools.

Why do you keep posting this as AC? do you work or promote these registers or something?

Re: Oh the huge-manate!

No, it's sheer madness and an utter shambles, we should abolish this copyright welfare system entirely, like reducing it to 5 or 10 year terms and boot all their asses back into the production studios to make MORE work.

No other sector of work has it so good right now.

P.S Yeah Cliff was one of those asshats who wanted 150 year copyright welfare extensions. Just say NO.

ITU to treaty haters: Enjoy your pricey roaming, boatloads of spam... suckers

Anonymous Сoward

Re: confused

@Beau

I'm well aware of this, it was a rushed post, I am well aware of Muhammad being a prophet rather than a god, but the rest of my post still stands, who in the EU or the USA wants to be told by the ITU that their site offends someone in Iran or Sierra? I am no fan of the ITU if they give Iran or any other backward country a stick to mess with the rest of the western world, I am no fan of the status quo either, with SOPA ACTA etc, but until we have a BETTER system, then I say leave well alone.

Re: confused

If the ITU got control off ICANN, we would probably see some conflicts of interest, especially among the Islamic countries which want to globally censor anything bad about their imaginary friend 'Mohammad'.

This fact alone makes me vomit and glad the USA, Canada, and the EU gave them the middle finger.

Re: The company you keep

This is exactly why we need to kick the ITU into touch, taking a landgrab at the internet is NOT the answer people are looking for, in fact it's a solution in search of a problem, in this case, if the ITU were to run the internet, expect a major major shitstorm over the amount of non-islamic websites get seized by Islamic countries because they depict the prophet muhammad in a bad scenario or in a bad way. the amount of seizures would make USA ICE seizures look like a dot in comparison.

Common sense regtards, not that I would expect you had some, of course, otherwise why would you be reaching for the thumbs down button everytime you see anything bad about the fucking ITU!

Anyone that actually downvotes this post is a fascist and also most likely a pedoterrorist!

Re: Good!

It was always going to be this way...

I have just won a bet that the "powers that be" would try to railroad a treaty that can be used to take over the Internet on a post-factum basis due to its vagueness. Anyone who has ever had to deal with the ITU knows that it is one of the most morally bankrupt organizations known to man (the UN pales by comparison). At the very least the UK and US reps showed some vertebra which I find surprising.

In any case, the book does not close on this chapter. There will be a repeat - again, again and again. As long as the union of X Telecoms (X ~ incumbent monopoly or ex-monopoly in most world countries), Russia, China and Iran is out there there will be another chapter, and another, and another...

And this is exactly why the USA and the EU will veto this shit no matter how many times they try.

Big Business trumps Iran's and China's wishes, don't think for one second it does not as that shows just how naive you really are.

Go at it thumbs down tards you hate the TRUTH and you know clicking a button makes your life feel better :P
