    you have to look at that advertising to tear it out.

    Sure you do. You just can't take it home and display that visceral experience in your massive video library for all to see and admire and envy.

    This is life, kiddo. Someone comes up with a new technology and we all must either adapt or die. If you want to enjoy the latest movie on the latest in-home gear, you're going to have to buy the latest damned in-home gear. Get over yourself.

    And stop whining!

    Well, regarding the "multiple formats for the same product" I think it's a valid argument that we shouldn't have to purchase multiple copies of the same product. If I purchase a CD with songs on it, I should have the right to play that on any piece of hardware that I can get it to play on. It's the same song, same product, just different format. If I pay money for a lawnmower for instance, I can use that lawnmower on any property I own. I don't have to buy a different lawnmower for every lot I own across the city or state. Sooooo.....I should be able to listen to a song I purchase using any means I own. All an MP3 is is a CD song converted, that's like saying that you should have to buy two computers, one that runs on 115v and one that runs on 240v. Uh no, one machine should be able to do both, and they do. Now CD players are also MP3 players, so either/or gets the job done. But to punish someone who has old equipment with making them buy something twice when the guy next door doesn't have to, that's bull****.

    As long as you aren't distributing the songs for free, or worse, for compensation, IMHO, you aren't copyright violating anything. You bought it. It's yours. Period. I know that's not how the law reads right now, but give it time, I feel eventually it will.

    Not unless it's technology that duplicates data and shares it right? Then by all means we should fight against that technology.

    I am against file sharing online, just from the sheer volume of it. However, I believe that once you buy a CD/song/movie, that you should be able to download it to any media/device you or someone in your family owns. I do not think that families should have to buy multiple copies of a CD/DVD so that everyone is able to enjoy a song/movie on their own device. If this were the case, where does it end? Who in the family actually owns the disk/book? Would it be wrong to watch the DVD/listen to the song/CD as a family? Would it be break copyright infringement laws to show a movie at a party of friends and/or family? How about loaning the movie out? Or reselling books/movies/CDs at yard sales or to used item stores, is that wrong?

    I think that private use should be fine. Once the media is made public, then it should be punishable, if the artist wishes to seek punishment. The punishment should be reasonable and somewhat based on if the person was seeking profit or not.

    I used to think like you when I would find ways to justify aggression done by intellectual property laws; thinking that if the person shares and makes a profit, that it's wrong. I don't think this way any more though because of after market movie theaters , things like netflix and the resale of media that most likely got backed up digitally.

    Question for you. Why is renting out a video 500 times ok but a movie getting downloaded 500 times isn't?

    Be very careful with wording, P2P, torrenting, etc is just a method of distribution of files, just like one can't say sharing MP3s is illegal since MP3 is just a file format. That's it. The issues arise in HOW it is being used, and abused in some people's eyes, like with the MP3 what TYPE of music [legally, illegally distributed] is the issue.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    They'll never manage to do this. To much information flows through the internet today. They would never be able to trace it all.
