Kyoto? Rural area? Are you nuts?

WTF has happened? I remember when reasonable disclosure ment that the vendor was notified
and given 3 days to release a patch. AND that public was notified right away with no details.

Now some people speak about "responsible" (whatever that means) disclosure of 90(sic!) days!

Are you all gone mad collectivly?


Reflections On the Less-Cool Effects of Filesharing 458

surpeis writes "This snub is an attempt to point the finger at something I feel has been widely ignored in the ever-lasting debate surrounding (illegal) filesharing, now again brought in the spotlight by the Pirate Bay trial. I should state that I am slightly biased, as I have been running my own indie label for some years, spanning about 30 releases. It's now history, but it was not filesharing that got the best of us, just for the record." (surpeis's argument continues below.)
