Have you ever tried to use Bing?
And Google probably counts the entire list as part of the OS.
I'm understanding of humor just doesn't find it funny.
Your understanding of fish reproduction leaves much to be desired.
dust cloud surrounded by vacuum? I mean, gravity would eventually coalesce that into a planet. But void in this sense would likely mean "empty." Devoid of life.
It's certainly possible for a sperm whale and a bowl of petunias to both come into existence and immediately begin a freefall to earth, the former of which has just enough time for an existential crisis.
Population 1? I highly doubt there's anyone living there!
The lobbyists working for the cable industry beat them to it. They're not going to win on that front. Public opinion might be the one big move they have, and so they're trying to get into the news about the issue.
TV is on demand (in that respect) too. You turn on your TV when you want to watch it. You aren't forced to leave it on for Canadian content if you don't want to.
I would personally call "other means of telecommunication" another name for "The Internet." A broadcast receiving apparatus could be a Roku if a computer is not specific enough.
Then again, here in the US, the Internet isn't considered telecommunication. Otherwise, net neutrality would have taken hold long ago and cable Internet customers would be paying into a Universal Service Fund to expand broadband to rural areas.
I've literally heard of none of the people on your list. Maybe that's because they made their mark before 1971, but that's a completely useless bit of information ot a lot of people.
Yeah...if this wasn't a move driven by lobbyists for the Canadian cable industry, you might have a point. But you know it is.
Except that Netflix is hardly different than a DVD rental store in many respects (distribution).
But anyone can self-publish even without the likes of Youtube. All you need is a server with bandwidth and advertising dollars. And there's less of a need than ever for a central distribution point like Youtube for all but the smallest content creators.
And strangely, Netflix USA has plenty of Canadian content. The problem is the middlemen. The content creators shop their works around to distributors. The distributors sign licenses for their country. Then, when Netflix comes along, the distributors all have exclusive rights by country. Netflix is forced to sign with multiple distributors to have the same content in multiple countries.
How safe one company operates vs. another is not a counterpoint.
