Comment: Patent infringement (Score 2) 126

What are the exact steps it would take to reform the copyright act in America? Everybody will probably agree that this issue is front and centre for anybody in the tech industry. So the big question is how does the ball start rolling in the first place and I for one would be more than eager to start pushing.

This is the reason to not have AC's on this board. If you state your opinion by using a youtube video from a whiny and irrelevant rock band, the rest of the comment and statements made thereafter are immediately dismissed as the ramblings of a angst ridden teenager with too much time and not enough common sense.

Comment: assume (Score 3, Interesting) 67

I think we can all safely assume that every government regardless of locale will try to restrict it's citizens rights to the point that the citizens have to respond to stop them. This is the default criteria for a government in the first place. We all know that this will creep back in a little while when the issue becomes less volatile. The only real way to stop it is by acceptance or revolution (e.g. american revolution). I don't forsee any polititians being strung up in trees so it is the fault of the public. You get the government you deserve.

Comment: Traditional Publisher (Score 3, Interesting) 117

I would believe that this project would not be able to come from a traditional publisher on the basis that a "traditional publisher" nowadays feels that a game is not able to survive without DRM. Behold the brave new world of independant publishing ( am i showing my optimism there?)

As a canadian, I think that you are being a little naive about "contributions", considering the reality that a leadership campaign can cost millions of dollars to run. Monetery donations are not the only donations and after all the vast majority of individuals in parliament are lawyers that have spent their careers creating and circumventing laws.

Consultants are mystical people who ask a company for a number and then give it back to them.
