I disagree. I would say the amount of support they get from the US in the way of tax breaks and having the freedom to run their business obligates them to not do business in countries that are directly in opposition to the constitution. They could NOT run their business in China. Since the constitution was written literally for all people. Any US company that helps another contry censor the people and track down dissidents should have there corporate charter revoked.
So, it's fine to for them to do it on US soil? and, although I don't know the US constitution, don't most European countries have at least something in their laws that is in opposition to the US constitution?
To the best of my knowledge the drum kit you used was a custom job for Best Buy. Rock Band and Guitar Hero have never been supplied with a drum set that doesn't have a bass pedal. This setup gave you absolutely the wrong impression of how the drums work with the supplied drum kit. All the pads in Rock Band for instance are assigned to specific parts of the drum kit:
You can also play it with the ION midi kit (which can actually be used to learn and record drum tracks on a PC) and that has a fully adjustable layout and separate symbols extensions for a more complete set up.
Having not used the Guitar Hero kit I can't comment on the relationship between it and a real kit but I certainly feel that the official Rock Band kits are accurate enough to learn the basics.
The record company has sued the computer company....
Yes, because Apple Records produce and sell music and now Apple Computers is doing the same via iTunes.
This system will self-destruct in five minutes.
