Comment Re:DRM means not copyrighted (Score 1) 634 634

The public, the people, via government allowed a limited time for the content creator to exclusively profit from their work before it enters the public domain, and that is the concept of "copyright."

What is this "limited" you speak of? A cartoon made 82 years ago, by a guy who's been dead 44 years now, still has another 13 years of protection before it gets another extension.

From imdb:

SPOILER: When Verbal Kint falls to the ground during the interrogation by Kujan, Verbal clearly says "I did, I did kill Keaton." Kujan is yelling at the time and does not hear the slip up, which Verbal quickly covers up by saying "I did see Keaton get shot."

Steam will need more clout before this changes. Publishers right now don't want to risk pissing off brick & mortar retailers by offering cheaper software online. This probably won't change until online distribution of games is more popular than B&M and publishers can risk losing the shelf space.

Only a very minute part of your tax is spent on this sort of light entertainment

By this agency, on this project. When you start adding up the hundreds of projects from dozens of agencies, it doesn't seem so minute. And when you factor in our short-term trillion dollar deficit and the long-term budgetary crisis that will happen in the next couple decades, maybe a space MMO isn't such a great use of taxpayer dollars right now.

The wages of sin are unreported.
