Yep, I've been using this for a couple of years to upload to a SMB share on a raspberry pi server. Works flawlessly. I can then take the files off the pi as I sort them into folders and stuff, and it all stays in sync fine.
If I made a movie in 1989, I wouldn't care about you copying it to watch it.
But I would care about:
1. Someone else charging you for a copy.
2. Someone else remixing the crap out of it to make something shitty that's still associated with my name.
I don't think PD is the answer - perhaps things could go Creative Commons after 25 years instead?
No, the Nissan Leaf is the "still rich enough to spend a huge chunk of money on a low-range toy" man's Tesla. There is no poor man's electric car, or even a lower-middle-class man's electric car.
Miles and yards would do, but I agree miles and feet (or miles and 0.1 miles) is just irritating.
Of course we still have cheques. Unlike the GP, we seem to have to write them for quite a lot of after-school clubs and things. It does seem very last century to me.

So far it's proven to be more trustworthy than most government-issued currencies. This is the first real threat to trust.
And pay for a VPN to hide your IP when trading in Bitcoins.
Come on slashdot, get the guy's name right.
There is some truth to it? Hell, everyone did that when I was a kid in the 80s. Still didn't catch the damn thing until I was 16 though.
I tried a bunch last week, and MusicBee is the one that most closely matches my winamp usage patterns, so it's what I'm using at the moment. It's pretty good.
Buy them off ebay using paypal - easy enough?
If F-Droid want to actually make an impact on the Android userbase, the home page needs to have instructions on how to install the damn thing! I know what I'm doing, but most people just install stuff from google play. If they follow this link and click the "install" link, they get an apk download and no help. This is not very useful.
