Stupidity rules, ok?

Idle hands are the devil’s playthings

The brand new “Family Entertainment and Copyright Act” sets the new standard in the losing battle against copyright infringement. Bringing a camcorder to the movies can now result in up to three years in jail. In the battle for preservation and enlargement of copyright all forms of intrusion (sampling, remixing, reediting, reusing etc) are deemed illegal unless given permission by the rights holder. Unless, the new law states, unless you have a moralist agenda. Then you can infringe all you like, and even profit while doing it. Can’t you hear it? The sweat lies the devil is spreading; the false comfort of having it both ways. Compromise truly is the devil talking.

Stupidity rules the moralists, ok?
