Maybe Parrot will start taking the the runaway problems more seriously if that's the case.
That's not a bug, that's a feature. Now go and buy a new one!
They can't have it both ways.
Oh but they can! They always pick what is best for them, arbitrarily.
Want to make a backup copy of your DVD? It's a license, you can't.
You scratched your DVD? It's an item, you have to buy a new one for a full price!
Value of a digital copy for everyone else equals to value of work you put into making it, which is ZERO.
Even if you factor in the cost of making the initial original, because you can make infinite copies, it is still ZERO.
How many sane people would pay for something they know cost you nothing?
Pay you over and over again for the same work you did?
When they know they could make the copy themselves for zero cost?
It is like you picking a rock and trying to sell it to someone who saw you do it for a ridiculously high price, with plenty of other rocks lying around.
Making laws so that only you can do it to make this fly is not fair. Why should you be allowed to make money for free while everyone else has to work?
Forget about selling digital copies as a way to make money. Sell licenses. Sell tickets. Just dont sell copies please. Stop already. Stahp!
