Comment Re:France, country of copyright thieves? (Score 0) 376

They did not "pull it together".
Several big copyright holders demanded a solution, and one of them could convince a minister who started a state commission (directed by the PDG of FNAC, a French media and hi-fi retailer) mandated to review possibilities.
Those copyright holders might be worthless too, but they are still different from MPAA, and France is a very different country from the USA.

Well I used to agree with you, and as a driver myself I like to speed too.
But since speeding ticket machines were generalized here in France death count on the road really dropped... So what to think?

I now think that bad driver + speeding = death, whereas bad driver + slow driving = injuries at worst.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.

Working...
