Also, in the Internet Age you're more likely to hear about it when someone does something crooked or foolish. I question the Ask-Slashdotter's assumption that things are getting worse.

(He actually asked the right question: why do things appear to be getting worse. But then elaborates on the assumption that the sky is actually falling.)

I'm surprised the feds haven't banned it. IIRC th constitution prevents the states from creating money other than gold or silver coin; surely they won't allow individuals more leeway.

All I can figure is that it's considered more like a credit card than money. Or else the hammer just hasn't come down yet.

Any form of DRM on a simple system like the NES could be circumvented rather quickly. And since the primary purpose of Netflix is to promote DRM, they won't drop DRM from that.

Without DRM it would obviously be rather simple, just add a network card and copy raw frames from it to the graphics chip. That's a no brainer.

Except it turned back toward Malaysia, but then turned again generally westward and followed a crooked channel out to sea, along a path that a Malaysian pilot would know isn't covered by air traffic radar, but would not know is covered by military radar.

Foul play is beyond question. The questions are who and why.

If the video contains anything copyrighted by the Indian government or by a corporation friendly to the Indian government, then anyone hosting the video is liable for copyright infringement. Not all countries recognize fair use to the same extent.

I always wanted to copyright my name, do something outrageous, and then sue all the media that runs a story on it.
