Copyright Police


Dude, you should not be doing scummy stuff during a recession. *pause* You should be doing scummy stuff at any given time.

Ok, my original point is that you don't want to annoy customers in a time when people are less inclined to spend money.

There has been a lot of crackdowns, in one way or another, from the copyright brigade.

* Last.fm has gone medieval on their non-US/UK/German listeners.

* The German publishing association of sorts held up the proverbial piece of paper that will change the word and yelled, "No P2P in our time."

* And now there is rumor that AT&T and Comcast just might be honoring the 3-strikes and then you will have internetlessness rule.

That second analogy will make me rather unpopular, won't it?
