Indeed, but it has to do with the "me" that I perceive as being "me".
How about this argument: the captain Kirk that steps on the transporter pad isn't the same one as the one that materializes on the planet a short while later. It's a perfect, 1:1 copy, of the original captain Kirk. That captain Kirk will think it's the original, as his last memory is commanding the transporter chief to energize. But that was a different version, which has been destroyed by the destructive scanning the transporter does. Provided the process results in a perfect copy, the copy (nor anyone else) has no way to tell it isn't the original, so it believes to be the original. (Since this wouldn't go down well with the fans, there's some mumbo jumbo going on making the copy somehow the original, but if you think about it, there's only one conclusion.)

Black holes are just a toy.
Suppose gravity wins out after all, and the universe ends in a Big Crunch. One or a few Planck second(s) before the singularity, all the information in the universe should still be there. How?
Suppose entropy wins and the universe ends in heat death. For bonus points assume all protons have decayed. All the information should still be preserved. How?
There is no punishment for even malicious DMCA takedowns. It's "kill them all and let God sort them out" behavior.
And that was done *on purpose* to shield the "Rightsholders" from any harm (the strong worded "bla bla penalty of perjury bla bla" -- believed by some to be a check-and-balance -- in fact protects them too, namely that noone can run an extorton racket by make false claim of representing the "Rightsholders" -- to ensure any money flows in their direction and not some fraud).
There should be a "strike" system for takedowns too; x many false notices and you can only submit on paper, and this time on penalty of perjury that the work in question infringes on the work being claimed. That can eventually lead to JAIL TIME.
