The French don't have a sparkling history either if we can hold today's societies to blame for everything and anything that is recorded in history.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Well, where did that stuff and energy come from?
... how can a vacuum, with no physical or chemical properties, go 'bang?'
I agree. I read all pages and am left wondering why this particular plot was so crucial. Poor journalism. "Apple needed it" is not specific enough. Why didnt they just buy a block in another direction?
Not at all. People who act professionally or who run business understand the meaning of "dont burn bridges." In this case, once the lawsuit is completed and all debts are settled everyone acts like adults and moves on.
Frankly, I don't care about your points because I don't care about DRM in regards to my initial comment, "Just a thought." I am annoyed by the whole DRM validity discussion. It's irrelevant to the the Slashdot post and my comment. Mention DRM to me and I just roll my eyes...
You don't have any digital Fair Use rights because digital content is not mentioned in the Fair Use ruling. Fair Use is thrown out in digital media cases. Circumventing DRM violates the usage contract you have with the media distributor and or copyright holder. When you buy a CD or DVD, you own the plastic - not the content.
"As long as purchasing media requires me to risk prison time in order to use said legitimately purchased media, I won't be buying."
Great. But that means you cannot pirate either.
Go back and read the Slashdot post, then read my comment. You are wasting your life arguing about something I did not say. I never said I like DRM, nor that DRM will end piracy.
Sheesh, if only you people could read comprehensively we could talk about today's Slashdot posts....
"Conclusion: The RIAA and MPAA are welcome to keep DRM if they wish."
