This is why people should be very wary of crowdfunding because so many of the crowdfund campaigns are exactly that. So much bullshit. There's quite a few legit companies that do get started this way but enough failures that people shouldn't be backing projects as carelessly as they do.
Recent regulation was changed to allow for "crowdfunding" startups this way, where you can actually get shares of the business this way. I haven't heard of anyone doing this yet, though I understand the option is legally available now.
That works if you do have the means to defend it. But the means to defend it get pretty thin when you're talking about clones selling on Alibaba. Even if you have legal resources in China, they're going to use your brand. Even those only selling very different competing designs will use your brand.
I agree. Assange has said on TV that he has dirt on Clinton that he will release in due time. If he has it why not release it now? It has to be because he wants to time the release to do as much damage as possible to the Clinton campaign or he doesn't really have it. Either way, Assange is crossing the line from freedom of information fighter to attempted spoiler of a political campaign in service to his personal grudge.
Yeah, I think Cameron has a case of rose-colored glasses on how great the theater going experience supposedly is. But maybe that's what theaters are like in Hollywood. That said, nine times out of ten, I do enjoy going, it's the one time out of ten that really tanks it, then there's the cost.
I really think offering something that allows families and groups of friends to watch from home is more likely to help save the theater going experience than hurt it, provided it's not punitively priced.
My choice is my boy with a hammer. Much more enjoyment than whatever $ you can get for a used HD.
