Comment Re:Educate the public? (Score 1) 587

In Malaysia (where I live, also a pirate heaven), the dominant pirate gang have for years inserted their own unskippable 10 second video, asking viewers to buy their 'gold-color-plated' pirated DVD instead of some rival gang's 'blue-color-plated' DVD disc (prob some DVD-R), with a short video comparison clip over why their quality is better. So yeah, the pirates are one-up on the game years ago.

Astronaut Sues Dido For Album Cover 264

An anonymous reader writes "Astronaut Bruce McCandless is suing Dido for her album cover that uses a famous NASA photograph of a tiny, tiny, tiny McCandless floating in space. McCandless doesn't own the copyright on the photo, so he's claiming it's a violation of his publicity rights ... except that he's so tiny in the photo, it's not like anyone's going to recognize him."

The thing is their products are agile in price since they have high fixed costs and low marginal costs. Airlines are classic example of this.

Um... airlines have low marginal costs? Where did you get that from? I think what you are getting at is the ability to execute price differentiation. Having a low marginal cost of course helps you execute this because you can drop all the way to zero, but I don't think you can call running flights low-cost!

The world is coming to an end--save your buffers!
