    Silly isn't it?


    It is not a matter of knowledge contained in the words, it is only a matter of items. In this case, a digital item.

    The argument of intellectual property, in my mind, is full of holes. Digital media cannot be protected and will not be protected. The entire model is flawed. Some media companies have already figured out how to offer free media to the masses and still rake in a huge profit.

    Highways made travel easier, chainsaws made chopping down a tree faster, and the internet allows for information to be shared instantly. All of the items listed, and many more, share a common trait in that they offer a real solution to make things easier all while effectively taking money from older, outdated technologies.


    To share knowledge, media, and entertainment worldwide should be celebrated. God knows I have enjoyed watching LSU sports on the net when I could not see it anywhere on Tv. I have also enjoyed reading about various topics through free knowledge sharing sites.

    When you watched these illegal lsu streams did you guilty as if you had stolen a potato from a farmer?

    Explain to red why you didn't and I would appreciate it

    i am also stealing the game, from thefirstrow.eu . lots of porn popups, but i can deal. would be quite interested in hearing of other places to stream football.

    i happen to live in an area where time warner is my only real tv option other than the dish, and dont like the dish, and time warner is in a dispute with the NFL and does not show the nfl network, which means no thursady night football, which means i am screwed, which means i will steal streams from the internet.

    also on the media front, i sold my roku and bought a boxee box, which is pretty sweet. a boxee box with dvr functionality and maybe android gaming, that would truly be the solution. hope ouya is that.

    like my argument with red about peak oil, i crushed this one as well. in that one i specifically predicted the growth of LNG and american energy independence.

    musicians are happily giving away free stuff these days, and nobody buys music. we buy access to a streaming service, or we listen to ads. the model of selling the music as a physical media is quaint and silly. well except for vinyl which is doing well.

    here is steve aoki describing how he wants to give away free stuff, as i said a decade ago
