Life Line

Life-Line – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Poetry. Beautiful.

There has grown in the minds of certain groups in this country the idea that just because a man or corporation has made a profit out of the public for a number of years, the government and the courts are charged with guaranteeing such a profit in the future, even in the face of changing circumstances and contrary to public interest. This strange doctrine is supported by neither statute or common law. Neither corporations or individuals have the right to come into court and ask that the clock of history be stopped, or turned back.

You Bought It, You Own It

Like hell they own it and I’m just a licensee.
I will use something I buy in any which way I want, as long as it does not impact/(harm) others.

That said, as for GliderĀ WHY would you want a program to play for you? I admit building the AI part of such a program is quite intriguing.. but aren’t you playing a game to play the game?

Then hollywood and all the other publishers are the biggest thieves in the world.
Why? Because of retroactive copyright extensions.
Because of those extensions the publishers have stolen millions of works from the public domain.
Works that were created and released under very specific copyright terms that guaranteed their release into the public domain.
If they didn’t agree to those terms, they should never have published in the first place.
But instead, they hired lobbyists to steal all of those works from every single citizen.
That is theft on a scale hundreds of thousands of times greater than ‘internet piracy’ could ever achieve, even if every single citizen pirated everything they ever watched.

So if you want to talk about stealing you should be focusing on the biggest thieves in the world bar none not these piddly little downloaders.

I agree 100%.
