...pirates made the IP-blocker thingies (I dont recall the term.) They introduced proprietary hardware imited int software, so pirates jailbroke it. As protective technology grows, so does the technology made to deceive it. Piracy and other cybercrime will eventually eclipse physical robbery as petty theft. Nobody will try and slip...

Im from England, and here we have our own version of control, the Digital Economy Act. Large music labels care about profit, and the rapid change in technology means not only piracy is hurting music sales but legal services as well. Things like Spotify and Grooveshark are even being targeted despite being legal. The labels dont ...

Coal becomes Uranium, Horses become cars, Bicycles becomes airplanes, Airplanes become Space Shuttles... Technology evolves. Thats life. Thats Evolution. I understand (and empathize) with the old school media companies, but the reality is what it is. They must change with the times. Im not saying it will be easy, it wont b...

I think market solutions providing a much cheaper access to entertainment and digital media (such as Spotify) is the only real solution to the issue of file sharing, or at least the only way for companies to keep a certain amount of profit on their productions.

...line piracy. Through moral and legal threats it has retained the older audiences who are wary of running afoul of their local laws. Additionally, since sharing technology has been marginalized, the tools required to access pirated media is prohibitive for older, less tech savvy audiences. Meanwhile the younger crowd is happily e...

Using government regulation (IP laws) to prop up business models that are rendered obsolete by new technology (p2p etc.) is inherently bad for society. In the future p2p and other file-sharing technologies will be used by the producers of content themselves to reach a larger audience by using marketing to fund production. There...

...increasingly moving toward tracking everything you do online, and honestly the internet is designed to track everything, however the laws are always behind the technology and no laws have ever stopped pirating completely, so why would new laws do it now. Better for corporations to just have a better service that meets the needs ...

File sharing is inevitable. Its just how it is. Like motor cars and computers, its a new technology that isnt going to go away because its incredibly proficient and convenient. The market either has to adapt, or give up, because denying commerical file-sharing is denying natural inertia and human progress. Isnt file-sharing, rep...
