History and Future of DRM

Recommended Posts

The problem is that M$ and Sony and the RIAA and MPAA don't care about the differences between these idiots and the people that are fighting for fair use on principle such as "DVD-Jon"... the DMCA screws them equally. In fact, indirectly, the DMCA screws genuine consumers even more. They are the ones that have to deal with all the copy-protection [poopie] while the hackers (regardless of whether they are acting in self-interest or on principles) get unrestricted access to the oh-so-precious content.

 

Far Cry wouldn't run on my PC unless I uninstalled CloneCD. This was the *trial* version of CloneCD for [pity's] sake that I had installed just for laughs. I could have uninstalled CloneCD, but I uninstalled Far Cry instead. You have to draw the line somewhere.

Would that be more properly termed a cackle, chortle or guffaw?

 

Maybe a cuffawkle?

 

Cuffawkle sounds like something a person would do in the privacy of his own bedroom, preferably with someone special. :">

 

It could be a verb: "Wanna go to my bedroom and cuffawkle with me?"

Cuffawkling is a strange and wonderful thing.

Yes.

 

With enough effort we can form this into a private internet fad.

That would be awesome enough to warrant some cuffawkling.

Cuffawkling? For me?

 

Why, thank you.
