They don't own the copyright to the movies, which is what was being posted, not their lectures. Check out the rest of the comments where the incredibly poor lead-in is taken to task.
...VB was, before Java, extraordinarily successful. There's no reason to believe that if MySQL went away, mindshare would go to more powerful or more capable solutions, when ease and speed were what sold people on MySQL. People would more likely end up with SQLite then with PostgreSQL.
Dear god, I got to "where'd my skin go" and nearly spat 7-Up all over my monitor, you bastard!
Both of them, but particularly Hellboy 2, are excellent. Don't let alphabet-number boy turn you away from some really gorgeous comic book action.
...in other words, even if it's been pulled down 1,000 times, there's a good chance nobody wanted your specific book.
I really believe there's nothing, ultimately, to be done about the masses distributing copies of, well, everything. On the other hand, freely distributed doesn't mean not paid for: plenty of folks who saw Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long blog did so where there was advertising, or bought the DVD (I did). The last Harry Potter book was available online before release, and did that really affect sales in any way?
Some folks won't pay. Wouldn't have. Some would have, but they won't if they can avoid it. In any case, there's no way to stop them. Stopping the search engines assumes that a solution could be found that wouldn't be worked around: don't be silly. This is the way it is.
