Replying to undo wrong mod
Not sure how much thought was put into that statement, but I am certainly putting more thought into it than I should
..... (I think)
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.
It appears to me that Sweden is becoming the centre of internet freedom battles. Is this geographical, cultural,legal or just luck of the draw?
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.
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.
Posting to delete wrong mod - should be modded interesting. note to self - touchpad needs to be replaced with mouse.
zip drives killed the Syquest drives pretty quickly if I remember correctly. Was in printing at the time and you basically had to have both but a Syquest and a zip drive but zip won out pretty quick.
Any company that worked in any way with graphics in that period had Zip disks.

...the scary part is that I remember all of those incarnations of the floppy.
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.
Take away their ability to use credit cards - problem goes away. Am I the only one who sees this?
I concur, but the fact is that American lawyers are arguing this which means that they are not able to do anything about it AFAIK. In turn if the lawyers are arguing about this it takes them away from other other pursuits, such as suing everybody and their neighbor. I see this as a bit of a circle jerk that will simply keep some lawyers busy for a while which in turn will help society as a whole. The more clueless lawyers that are discussing quantum physics the better in my opinion.

As you'll see in the video, you control Duke using the Qwerty keypad and shoot using the touchscreen. I'm wondering how long it will take for this to get on other mobile platforms." In other Duke news, reader Jupix points out that 3D Realms' CEO Scott Miller recently said, "There are numerous other Duke games in various stages of development, several due out this year. We are definitely looking to bring Duke into casual gaming spaces, plus there are other major Duke games in production."
