pondering the effects of their site.
great - hopefully the insane backlash wont stop them showing future tests publicly.
if you dont want FB to find out theeffects of their site on you... don't use it.
Remember, it's not bribery, it's a licensing fee.
I'm sure such a fee should be paid in the other direction...
Completly Distributed too (based on Retroshare)
The idea of "Liquid Democracy" is that people can select representatives in various different areas (and they can select sub-representatives, etc)
At least that's my take on it, and what I am implementing in a distributed F2F manner as a plugin for RetroShare dubbed "Mesh Democracy":

I got a disproportionately high reward. copyright did not help - it's to stop people from copying for free - which people were doing and seeming to increase my sales in the process. To be frank - the system is mad, if copyright terms were closer to ~5 years
A Much better model than copyright is kinda obvious. Collect enough money to do the job in advance - it's getting even easier these days. We could do with a decent "OpenStarter" - Like kickstarter but more democratic - resulting on only FOSS, and without taking such a cut (0% cut with a p2p openstarter).
Problem is - many people make money off copyright think stuff like "yes, this is wrong, but I like money, and it is socially acceptable - so lets keep it this way!" There is also alot of thought along the lines of "Wow, I've earnd loads of money! I must be amazing - look at all the stupid people working hard for less reward" and many more streams of thought along similar lines.
Minimal copyright has some merit - our system today has evolved to increase disparity in wealth and get the majority to work for the gain of a few, thanking them for it at the same time. A much more advanced system to get people to do your bidding than directly threatining them (which happens too).
