This is the point in the conversation where you want to quit and give up.
Auto racing causes almost 0.0% of pollution in the world.
I know the actors are bad. Seriously though. Have you ever seen the government take over new powers and not expand them and abuse them? They will here too. What happens when the FCC is controlled by ultra conservative board members and they outlaw tits on the internet "For the public good"? "Think of the children". Do you really think this will not happen? Anonymity will go out the window. Be made illegal.
Again. The current situation sucks. Government will make it worse.
Except the courts are fucking stupid when it comes to tech and it takes years and millions of dollars to get a verdict.
They are bullshit patents and we all know it.
I understand that it is different. You just have to really read what I posted. Apple has products. Therefore they can not technically be "Just a patent troll". They still though can use the patents they have in a trollish manner.
Some of us are nothing but Apple haters. Some Apple defenders. Some can recognize that Apple has products, a right to make them and is still being a douche about their shit patents.
The only thing I can think of that is worse is to give the US government a foot in the door here.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Trolling is the action they are taking, but by the fact that they also have a legit business they are not "A Patent Troll". They are a company that engages in patent trolling when it suits them.
Not because a black squarish phone that you use fingers on the screen was something no one else could think of.
Show me regulations passed in the US in the last 15 years that worked well without massive downsides.
I do not think that the government has zero role in the running of the country. I believe that they, long ago, passed the line into over regulation. I think that continuing even further down this pass is almost always going to be a really bad idea.
That you must agree to having your conversations analyzed for key words so your TV can work?
(This is already the law) That they can not do it even if you (The Customer) agrees and wants it? (This should really spur innovation)
That there has to be a separate TOS for recording that the people who do not want to read the first one will also not read?
(This is where I think they will go) What exactly do you think the government can step in and fix here? (Government rarely does a thing well.)
