Instead of "using the content ID match system", how about they use the "DMCA notification" so that everyone has their fair claim and response under the law and, if needed, in a court rather than letting Google just turn it into both a heavy-handed big-guy-versus-little-guy squashing and "monetizing" opportunity?

When does the Chinese Room go from addition and multiplication tables to "understanding math"?
Don't worry, the idiots keep pushing for european style "high speed rail" in America, too. They're somehow convinced it's the economical solution to pollution and traffic while they put their heads in the sand about the actual corruption and incredible expenses it will actually have (not to mention, it own't be high-speed at all, if they ever get around to it... you know.. you do have to actually stop and let people on and off after all).

Our CEO is a physicist. All of the people in upper management have degrees in science or engineering, including sales and marketing.

And that's to say nothing of the 10's of millions of farm animals that worked in the same period and were replaced as well.
they weren't replaced. They were baked into meat pies as their usefulness waned.
I have no problem doing nothing. Or rather, given no requirements, I have no problem filling my time with constructive (well, mostly) things to keep myself occupied. I spent half a year unemployed after the dot-com bust, and other than plummeting into debt it was one of the best times of my life.
Naturally, this prediction comes when I'll be 68 and at full retirement age. That practically guarantees it'll come true, and I'll watch all the snotty kids enjoying the good life I had to earn for myself through decades of work.
