My point exactly.
It the feeling of lack of consequence. If I believe I can say what I want without consequence I will say and be more extreme.
Happens in cars happens in the internet.
My point exactly.
I do believe file sharing helps to spread the word and publicize less known bands, movies and books, it also brings more people to concerts and shows.
We know a lot more albuns and songs and not only a few singles, there's plenty of alternative bands appearing and showing that is good.
Now for already very known artists like Metallica or Movies Blockbusters that already have a name and don't need that much more publicity it does do more harm than good, but its hard to feel sorry for those that make dozens of millions of dollars per year already.
Its not about locking a consumer or not.
A monopoly is basically when you have more market share than your competitors, it doesn't matter if your clients are clients by choice or are being forced. Having more than 80% of searches is a monopoly by all accounts.
You could install many operating systems in your computer but most install windows. Windows isn't forcing anyone, they don't won you computer or your hardrive. But they have monopoly.
Using that monopoly in one line of business to obscure your competitors in other lines of business is not permitted by EU regulations.
Since when 95% of search market share isn't a monopoly?
If i want the best service, not google service that is important and as a user i do care.
You can argue that google is the best service but that is beyond the point, for me it might not be. Also I'm obscuring my competitor because i have monopoly on which streets everyone walks. That is not permitted in EU.
It happened with MS and IE, it will probably happen again against google.
When said company main service is directing others to websites and also has monopoly of the market. Yes it is news and is against business rules in Europe.
If mankind thought the same way you do we would still be banging rocks in each other's heads.
Although I don't agree with him he does have a point and is willing to discuss it, if you had an IQ bigger than 100 instead of shutting communication with irony and insult you would try to encourage it.
Close minded bafoon.
