    Always, it's the cash cow that fuels the internet. Has been since the beginning. In fact one of the first emails ever sent was ASCII porn.

    Have some realistic expectations.
    Of course you backed up that belief by voicing A&E's right to fire Phil Robertson and anyone else that has views that might be controversial. To do otherwise would be hypocritical.

    Would they do that? Probably not. But they will most likely kill thepiratebay and the like. They are required to tell customers, however, if any of those types of activities are ongoing. Not exactly sure how the FTC determines the authenticity of their policies, but I suspect audits would take place.
    Thanks for the clarification.

    As I understand it, these are not free speech issues - A&E absolutely had the right to fire Phil Robertson if he breached his contract through expression of his controversial views. Doesn't mean that people had to agree with that firing, and many expressed their views of A&E's actions and the channel was forced to change its mind. Free speech protections are only relevant in relation to citizen interaction with government.

    I'm not worried about corporations - they can't do ****... They're not lawmakers - they cant force us to buy a product unlike the government with "Obamacare."

    Besides corporations have been at this for so long - going back to the days of Cable TV providers.

    The funny part about a lot of this is that it doesn't last very long due to competition....

    Corporations cant censor anything....

    If corporations were inept at anything they would have a stranglehold on pirating which is something they have no control over - look at Walmart for example. They sell CD's now for 5 bucks instead of the 10 or 15 they were charging 5 years ago before you could just download these cds for free..... So.... It's really going to be the consumer that dictates their actions anyways... Then given the fact we have free markets there will always be someone there to kick out the old and bring in the new.

    Better than government regulation (which is happening regardless)...

    Hell, this could be nothing more than a cloak for government regulation in the first place.

    Apples and oranges. The Constitution constrains government, not private actors. Robertson's remedy, if one exists, would have lay in whether his contract was violated.
