Yes, thats exactly it. I can talk about my AMV's without tip-toeing around stupid rules or legal bylaws. That is what I was trying to say, I guess I shouldn't have brought it up in the first place.

In *this* forum your right, since the thread is off-topic as I was trying to hint towards...

speakin of all the illegal stuff, i read in the paper yesturday that congress has proposed a bill that will allow music companies and movie companies to hack into private computers and delete illegal mp3s and mpeg files. i personally find it an invasion of privacy, what do you think??

It's not gonna pass. But if it does, I'd start buying stock in companies that make firewalls :D

I find it VERY wrong.Besides the obvious invasion of privacy,I fear a slippery slope could come with it.First the media companies can do it,then the police,and so on.Hell,this so called "Patriot Act" can pretty much allow the feds to drop in and search your shit without warning or warrant if you're suspected of being terroristically inclined,apparently.It has gotten to the point where I want to say "Fuck this nation!",teach English overseas(hmm,South Korea is one of the most wired places on earth),and get rid of my citizenship.This government is already on the road towards fascism,and I don't want to be here.

On the other hand,those of us who're willing could go to Canada,hang out on the native peoples' reservations,build up ammo and weapons stockpiles and overthrow the US government.

Stuff to think about.
I'm out...

Actually certian companies dont mind when certian people pirate their software. Like Adobe for example actually likes it when kids pirate there software. Adobe knows theyre not losing money because most kids couldnt afford it anyway, and wouldnt have bought it. However, the kids do become experienced with the program and it becomes on of the main tools they use. So, when the enter the job market, companies that hire them and can afford to buy it do because its the primary tool they workers use. And companies have to buy a copy for each computer its on. Same thing with schools. Now, when adobe finds compaines or schools using pirated software, then they throw the biggest shit fit you ever seen. So basically, they like 14 year olds pirating their software cause its free advertising. This doesnt apply to all software though.

To be fair, if this bill does pass then I wouldn't be surprised (and I would actualy be entertained by) if a faction/parts of the hacking comunity actually begin trying to protect THEIR systems from the government, and and we all know that when it comes to computers and knowing how to use them, its the group of pimply teenagers in the basements at 11:00pm perfecting their hacking skills, not some 9 to 5 government hired programer from MIT. And besides, All I have to do is store my stuff on a comp outside any network and keep it disconected from the net. Hell, when I get my next comp thats what I am going to do as is.

So what you're saying is Adobe wants people to pirate Premiere and Photoshop? :wink:

At any rate, you could have saved yourself a lot of trouble, CaTaClYsM, if you didn't bring anything up at all. But whatever, what's done is done...

Ha. That would have made me laugh if it wasn't so damn sad. Way to attempt to kill innovation because it takes a little money out of your already fat-ass pockets.
