I have always found it funny how company's object to their music/videos etc. being copied yet it is fine to buy blank CD's etc.
You could never enforce it really but this point:
How would that be proved or would the companies really care?Originally Posted by article
But wouldn't the fines be more relevant if somebody was coping it and renting/selling it to friends etc., you know like a dodgy buisness deal?
I've got no problem necessarily with artists seeking to enforce copyright protections on their own artwork. That's their business, and that of their record label or publisher or whatever, and they can do what they like. The proposed laws are quite different. Here's a section from the article Gelman linked and an addition to the quote he provided:Originally Posted by Craig
It's absolutely ridiculous. Not only is it practically unenforcable except in the most selective fashion imaginable, it's absurdly over the top and targets common users who actually support artists and the music industry. To put it simply, if I buy a CD, copy the tracks on to my PC and load them onto my ipod so I can listen to them away from home, I'm committing a criminal offence and could recieve any number of draconian punishments. I can't see how anyone could support such a law, whether it would be enforced or not.Originally Posted by the age

The real irony of the matter is that surveys and studies came out just today that marijuana use has dropped amongst young people.Originally Posted by FaaipDeOiad

It's all meth hysteria these days, geez. Don't you keep up with the latest scare tactics? You're the worst right-winger I've ever seen.Originally Posted by pasag

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
This actually made me laugh yesterday, 'cause it's one of the frequent analogies used when it comes to technology like file-sharing or reverse engineering. The idea that something should be banned because it can be used for illegal purposes, when it can also serve a completely legal purpose. I guess governments are looking to close those "inconsistencies".Originally Posted by pasag
Actually this is one of my main beefs with third-way Labor govts these days (and it works just as well talking about Labor in the UK as much as it does over here at State level). The erosion of long-standing wisdom being overturned due to various moral panics. Somebody got away with a crime? Don't blame the system's failure in this instance to make a decent case, get rid of double jeopardy so we can make sure it doesn't happen again. Bongs, pipes have been on sale for years in an environment of even soft drugs like marijuana being illegal, but have an "ice" scare, and Sweetie Beattie has to ban all the parephenalia. Have a crisis when it comes to a particular group of people being ostracised, and make criticism of religion and "blasphemy" have legal consequences. Just this constant tampering of laws on the fly, often with real negative consequences for such short-term, hysterical reasons.

"FFS I'm sick and tired of having to see a bloke bend over to pick something up or lean over and see their arse crack. For christ's sake pull your pants up or buy some underpants you bogan because nobody want's to see it. And this is a boat building shed (well one of them) not a porn studio."
Yeh, spot on.
Labor ftw tomorrow although it might be close, might be a landslide can't tell from here. Hopefully Baillieu will stay on though. Doesn't seem that bad although he loves Kennett which goes against him.
Yeah. It really makes me sick when ALP governments do this sort of thing. You certainly can't rely on the Coalition to stand up to them on something like this, so basically it's the fringe parties and nothing else. Rule by the angry and uninformed is never going to be anything other than disasterous, and that's what this kind of tabloid pop politics amounts to.Originally Posted by Slow Love™
If you want to stop people smoking marijuana you're going to have to ban Tally-Hos, Apples, plastic bottles, buckets, pipes, hoses, cigarettes and anything else I can't think of off the top of my head. Good luck!
EDIT: Sarah Lee cake, muffin and brownie mixes.
It was actually a pretty startlingly poor show for the Libs. I thought Bailleu ran a fairly good campaign, as well. Gonna make it very tough even for the next one.
Watching Robert Doyle on the TV coverage licking his lips and handing the media (and the ALP) various talking points like the primary vote falling etc was particularly unedifying.
