And you believe the RIAA?
Their report is the basis for the news we talk about, I found it in TFA.
Great a single point of failure, hack 1 account, hack them all !
OTOH, once you have only one login to manage, it gets easier to catter its security. Users can manage one long password, but have trouble to do so for multiple sites.
By far the majority of digitally distributed music is streamed, not downloaded.
I also believed that, but RIAA report linked from TFA says otherwise: 34% downloads, 34,3% streaming and 28.8% physical.
For whoever wonders how much "low cost" is, here is TFA excerpt:
Soekadar said the system could be brought to market within two years at a cost of between 5,000 and 10,000 euros ($5,370 to $10,740), depending on functionality.
On the climate change front, it is of little help to remove CO2 from the atmosphere to make fuel that will be burnt again.
I wonder if at some time we will be able to use sunlight, CO2 and nitrogen to make aminoacids.
Data is stil collected. This means at some time, an insider or a hacker will leak it.
And since it is tagged "for use after prime minister approval only", it will be easy to leak only that data
The article suggests businesses like insurers "will likely see the cost of complying with this new action as a disincentive to conducting business in China."
If there is profit to be made, they will do business in China, whatever the rules are. Remember Lenin's quote about capitalists ready to sell the rope that will be used to hang them?
HELP!!!! I'm being held prisoner in /usr/games/lib!
