I can’t attest to the first.  I just don’t buy many movies anymore because the second is painfully true.

  1. Hehe, I was just reading about the ‘I Rock Cleveland’ blog shutdown by Google. The author of this blog went out of his way for YEARS to only post music that with the approval of the labels. In addition, he never left any music available online for more than a couple months. A DMCA takedown bot didn’t even bother to check that the links were live before sending a takedown notice to Google, which complied in a way that *violated their own policy*!

    Here are the links:

    As annoying as all of this is I can’t help but laugh my ass off at the music and movie industry’s hell-bent effort to put themselves out of business. You would think that *someone* *somewhere* in the senior **AA leadership would be able to conclude that it is bad for business to sue and/or persecute your own customer base, *especially* when an alternative to your product exists that is free and easy to find with minimal risk. 🙂
