I doubt that it will fly up here in Canada. First, we pay a tax on all recordable media, so there is no such thing as piracy in Canada - unless you are downloading more than just music. Second, this is regulated by the CRTC, not the government. Third, someone tried this approach in the past and the court of appeals threw it out. So good luck to you MPAA.
dgharmon writes: A pretrial hearing in the case against accused LulzSec hacker Jeremy Hammond this week ended with the 27-year-old Chicago man being told he could be sentenced to life in prison for compromising the computers of Stratfor.
Judge Loretta Preska told Hammond in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday that he could be sentenced to serve anywhere from 360 months-to-life if convicted on all charges relating to last year’s hack of Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, a global intelligence company whose servers were infiltrated by an offshoot of the hacktivist collective Anonymous.
Hammond is not likely to take the stand until next year, but so far has been imprisoned for eight months without trial. Legal proceedings in the case might soon be called into question, however, after it’s been revealed that Judge Preska’s husband was a victim of the Stratfor hack.
Then you need to be far more attentive and dilligent at what you do.
Get off your ass, turn off the Simpsons, and do the job you get paid to do.
If you aren't willing to do the job you have, there are many others that will - and probably without the poor me whiny attitude.
Unfortunately this could also lead to compulsory sterilization for certain classes of people and risk groups(which has been tried before and failed miserably). Which is not only unethical, but it removes peoples right to choose their own lives destiny. How many people will wind up with this stigma because it won't work the way they hope it will.
There is no amount of accumulated data that will tell them which people are capable and willing to change their behavior so that they can be an integral part of society.
I'm not saying that it didn't cost them anything, look at all the egg on the face. It did indeed cost them something. But they would have looked a lot better had they caught it on their own, and then pulled the site down. Getting caught, that's never good. Aren't you supposed to audit projects like that to make certain that this type of thing doesn't happen?
I just don't think that volunteering to take your hand out of the cookie jar when someone catches you qualifies as doing anything to further the position they are in. It's just not the same as taking steps to assure us that this type of thing won't happen again.
