television? Nope. They got paid already, they
got paid when the station aired it.
I have no intention of buying a CD when I only
like one tune, or in buying DVDs. Just want to
see this episode and forget it.
The entire idea of piracy needs to be countered.
Especially where it suggests that the artistes
are the ones losing money.
How much money does an artiste actually get when
you buy the CD or DVD..and how much goes to the
battallion of middlemen, who have been rendered
"... Who's to say that they're only gathering basic information about your router? Will they also gather whether it uses encryption or not? Will they grab other information as well?
