Windows 7: RIAA/MPAA Want Government-Mandated Spyware

RIAA/MPAA appear to be incapable of adjusting to change and thinking out of the box. They are focusing on obstacles when they should be looking at opportunities.

Music and Movie sales are slow right now because the quality is in my opinion at an all time low. Most movies lately are hacked up remakes with washed up or never will be actors and seriously WTF is up with this letterbox crap. I have a 55" TV but most movies lately are letterbox therefore i'm restricted to viewing the movie in 25% of my screen. At least format them in widescreen which fills up most of the screen. Also i've noticed on a lot of new movies I can't even skip the commercials. As far as music albums.. They are at the point of having maybe 1-2 good songs on them. I don't download or buy music/movies anymore because I just can't find any worth it.

I think the biggest killer in sales however is how the RIAA/MPAA are presenting themselves.

i think the problem is (and i am not condoning this line of thought) that as we are all assumed to be guilty of copyright infringment until proven otherwise, people just think "sod it, if their gonna treat me like that, then i may as well just go ahead and actually do it"

See, what's happened here is for the past 40 years we have made them the empires they now dwell. We needed them and the artist needed them for advertisement, distribution etc etc. When the internet was just getting under way all those years ago these very organisations said it's just a fad and will burn out.

Fast forward 20/25 years and we now have the best advertising and distribution network there could be in p2p and torrents.

What's happening here is they want to take control of the whole internet so they can call the shots on everything we do. Instead of actually competing with innovation they are trying to restrict it for their own greedy monopolistic ways and it seems to be paying off just now because their wallets are louder than the outcry. But the outcry will become louder and louder because they are attacking everybody in their quest for money and power.

They are the captains of their own demise.

It's actually quite funny because if you go back in copyright history, not only was Hollywood founded by totally disregarding European copyright law but the whole of the USA was in fact founded by breaching copyright laws.

The sooner copyright gets a complete make over the better for everybody.

Copying is the very essence of how we learn!

Maybe that their ultimate goal is to "force" MS to collect data for them via WATS.

I don't find it surprising that a Brit would have a different perspective of history than one born in the USA, but I do admit that I find his statement puzzling. While I do recall taxation being a factor in causing the war, I can't think of a single instance of copyrighting infringement ever being mentioned. Perhaps he would like to enlighten us.

What do you suppose the Government uses ?
What do you think the US Government for instance, would use to protect their computer systems and networks ? I think either they use Norton or Kaspersky, or maybe they just stick with the built in Windows firewall and opt for MSE in order to save cash ! :p
