See, when I hear buzzwords like the president did a 'good job' or he was the 'worst ever', all I hear is the repetition of the same mass media buzz words I have been reading in the papers over the many years. I lived through the same shit and every day was just another X on the calendar. Work was as steady as I wanted it to be. When prices went up so did my income. None of it depended on some damn politician and his army of bureaucrats. All this nonsense coming from you disappoints me much more than hearing it from d_r, pudge, or Mr. Smith. I'm posting into a vacuum, completely unheard. You are still convinced the shell game is authentic. What will it take for all of you to see the con? Actually I think you do see it, just can't admit to idea of being the mark. And everybody wants to keep on playing in the insane attempt to get their 'money back'. It ain't gonna happen. The confidence game is still the best game in town. You all make it just too easy.

What is the difference here?

There isn't any. 'Cross License' is the euphemism for collusion. Patent holders should not be allowed to prohibit competitors from using their inventions, or to deny a license. They can still collect their royalties for the duration, but a license must be granted to anyone that can pay the percentage, without question, or even permission. Same goes for copyright. This is the only way mitigate some the inherent corruption built into the patent/copyright system until it can be abolished completely.

Nobody knows who is making 'threats'. I see no reason to give any money to Sony. They are hardly a bastion of free speech. As far as I'm concerned the whole thing is a scam, though the new Bond flick could be okay. Eh, maybe Sony might get my money after all, and I am amused by your Hollywood Tough Guy talk :-)

Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
