Who would have thought!?

Attention RIAA and MPAA, here follows some very important news! (Everyone already knows this, but it's news to you...)

Treating your customers like criminals is not going to bring in more money.


Instead, if you can reach an understanding with your fandom, you can use their creativity to keep your own properties fresh and new. Manga publishers in Japan have figured out how to do this, so there is already a precedent. You don't have to think up new ideas yourself (we know you have trouble with that), you can just emulate others (just like all your popstars do)!

Also, a juicy quote from this how-to on how to defeat region encoding on DVDs:
"Note that hacking your DVD player to circumvent region encoding technology is a violation of the DMCA, which means it's illegal if you're living in the United States. Those living in the free world shouldn't have too much trouble."
