Microsoft, RIAA, and non-ownership of media
    #1747855 - 07/25/03 01:27 PM (14 years, 27 days ago)

Has anyone ever read the microsoft windows liscensing agreement?

it basically says that you dont own your copy of windows, you are just leasing it from MS for a one time fee. It also goes on to say that MS owns the contents of your hard drive.

with all this + the RIAA crap, I believe that media companies are pushing for a sitiuation in which no one can legally own copies of music, movies or telivision shows (except the person that made them)and they have to pay every time they want to hear/watch something.

of course, this is a conflict of interest with capitalism and private property and all that stuff. My question is this:

Whose ownership takes precedence? the creator of music movies, etc. or the owner of recorded media (ie- cds, floppy discs, vhs tapes)?

Why is everyone so hell bent on power and control in America? It's sickening. Technology is going to be the end of freedom.  :frown:

im anticipating a very bloody showdown between corporations and people.. interestingly, the majority of people are currently herded into the corporate side of affairs..

luckily, there are groups ( with plenty of lawyers ) actively attacking corporate control on a large scale... Sadly, my extremely bad memory has forgotten all of their names =(
