They could also use a private team speak / ventrilo / etc. server but I would hazard a guess that most of it is done via throw away cell phones.. so let's take away Mobil phones from everyone? Really this whole speiel sounds a lot like the whole " gateway drug" dispute.

Personally I would have to think that the issue is that there aren't enough insiders that actually use webcams to complain about the issue before it is released. I am an insider, I HAVE a webcam, but I haven't used it in about 2 years. Our business just tends to use voice much more than video.

Not all. There are plenty of businesses out there that are still using windows xp either due to compatibility with older special in house programs or they just don't have the money to upgrade their systems. Unfortunately I fall in to the later. Upgrading 68 systems to windows 7 or above is a huge cost for us and the general consensus from upper management is if it isn't broken don't fix it. so, on average we replace 4-6 systems a year. Figure by 2025 we should finally be off of xp.

You can't. Been this way for years in relationship to entertainment media. What you are purchasing is a license to listen or watch the media and that is all. Just be thankful that they aren't as sue happy as they could be. That new cd/mp3 your playing in your car or porch? If other people can hear it besides you then it is considered an infraction and they could fine or sue you for it.

AND that is the BIGGEST traffic law that people break now days. Every where I go people are running at 70 mph with bumper to bumper traffic. I believe the distance is supposed to be 1 car length for ever ten miles per hour. If people followed this 90 percent of the accidents that happen probably wouldn't unfortunately it seems that most people behind the wheel anymore are inconsiderate and care about nothing but themselves and shaving 20 seconds off of their time to wherever they are going.
