That has been suggested in Spotify 'ideas' forum a number of time and each time Spotify respond with 'we will not implement that'.
But that is just one song. Assuming that the other tracks will not get as much play as the 'hit' song an album of 10 tracks might generate, say, five times that - approximately €30 000 per year.
Yet many, if not most, of the all-time most sucessful artists started out playing local pubs and clubs before getting signing by a label.
Why do networks love it when people comment online in realtime? if someone is sending tweets or posting on Facebook then the show is not holding their attention. Unless they are waiting for the ad breaks to post online, in which case they are not paying attention to the advertisers.
Which is why organisations such as financial institutions should publish their certificate fingerprint 'out of band', for example on the back of the credit/debit cards and on every (paper) statement they send you.
W3C should not be including anything like DRM. They should remember that is is HyperText Markup Language. All they need to define is the usage of the 'a' tag, and left some IETF working group define the transport type for video etc. rather than using HyperText Transfer Protocol.
There is no technical reason why the decryption modules could not be cross-platform. They could be implemented in an 'intermediate' language such Java Bytecode or UCSD p-code which can be run on (almost) any platform.
Other than with a credit card, how else do you recommend paying for mail-order goods?
Send a cheque or postal order with the order or in settlement of the account.
There are already ISPs which supply IPv6. The SixXS FAQ lists 7 in the UK (which means competitors of BT) and 14 in the USA.
All it means is that as well as quoting the IP address they will also have to quote the port number and an accurate time in order for the subscriber to be identified. It would also need the ISP to log the 4-tuple (Subscriber 'private' IP, External IP, External Port, TCP/UDP) for each connection as well as which private IP is allocated to each subscriber.
...Henceforth all conversations must be recorded on your official government recorder, which will relay all conversations in real time..
On the bright side, free telescreens for everyone!
Or Google Glass
It *would* be a DCMA violation for you to buy/acquire a copy of a game that wouldn't run on your Xbox without said modification. Now you are "stealing" the use of someone's copyrighted work without their permission.
Is that necessarily true? What if someone wrote a game that only works on a hardware modified X-Box? Would it not be perfectly legal for the game's author to sell the game and for people to purchase and run it?
Part of the problem is that products that start off good and have a good reputation often lose their edge but people continue using them. I remember when Norton Utilities (or it competitor PC Tools from Central Point) was almost essential for 'power' users, and when McAfeee was amonst the best anti-virus toolkits.
When there are several facebook users with a given real name and many of them have no picture and make their profile private with just the "If you know XXXX, send them a friend request", it is almost impossible to know which one of the 50 John Does is the one you went to college with or used to work with but have lost touch.
So you just introduce a law that anyone who publishes an image, video or audio file electronically is not allowed to remove any author attribution metadata from file as they received it. This is in effect enforcing article 6bis or the Berne Convention
Independent of the author's economic rights, and even after the transfer of the said rights, the author shall have the right to claim authorship of the work and to object to any distortion, mutilation or other modification of, or other derogatory action in relation to the said work, which would be prejudicial to the author's honor or reputation.
