defense of P2P...

wonder, who decided that all music, should be marketed by five firms.
I wonder, who decided that one radio network should own 80% of
airwaves. I am a THIEF. I steal. I steal television
episodes right off the TV (I greedily get up during the commercials),
and music straight out of my radio (I selfishly change the channels
during the commercials), and songs and digital music right out of P2P
networks where me and other thieves congregate. Worse of all I have
yet to buy a single item from TheNetworkAdministrator.com!!! Behold
I am evil!!!! (cue sinister music).
CD sales have
declined drastically in past five years. (Though not at all when compared
to the SP500). CD prices have raised steadily at an average 7%
for 13 years straight, that's a $hi7 load more than inflation, and their
losing money in a recession? Time for a witch hunt! Get out
your beta max busters (sledge hammers), and your cassette crashers (ball
peen hammers) its time to take out those Free Society destroying P2P cappie
redwhite'n'bluos ehhr I mean commie pinkos. Whatever u do, be a good
citizen, don't ask the FTC or the Attorney General to enforce
democratically enacted legislation like the SHERMAN ACT, and other
pro-capitalist anti-monopoly laws. No we need anti-capitalist, socialized
monopoly protection like the DMCA. Our fair market rights are being
infringed upon and P2P is the Boston tea party of the new generation.
capitalist society if you don't take advantage of the infrastructure you
lose shitloads of money. Record companies no longer have the easily
destroyed, easily broken, uncopiable media, they had 13 years ago, wahhh
As for P2P
being unsafe, and bad for a business environment, I couldn't agree more. But
then again so are most of the women I pick up in bars. Most of
them probably carry viruses, and are definitely not suitable for
the company Christmas party.
said P2P is bandwidth intensive, and delivers executable files of
dubious origin. I can tell you that in the environments I work in,
their is mandatory corporate anti-virus software running on every PC, and
Network monitoring tells me my bandwidth use at any given time.
identified traffic essential to my business and it is in a strict priority
queue on my routers, meaning no matter what any peg leg enhanced,
domesticated avianly friendly, vision impaired users I have, they can't
take bandwidth from my critical applications. They can not affect
mission critical bandwidth. However we will get suspicious when our
monitoring software says Billy the technician is using a ton of the low
priority bandwidth .
We walk over
to Billy and explain that his aquatically improved, parrot friendly,
Captain Morgan(TM) induced "bandwidth orientation" does not
meeting our acceptable use policy. Company policy dictates that we
show him our keen, beautifully crafted red exit sign hanging just
above the back door.
