Does anyone know of any music organization software that will sort all the music I torrent so I don’t have to manually do it on iTunes???
If the Obama administration responds with an even harsher hand against me, they can be assured that they’ll soon find themselves facing an equally harsh public response.
This disclosure provides Obama an opportunity to appeal for a return to sanity, constitutional policy, and the rule of law rather than men. He still has plenty of time to go down in history as the President who looked into the abyss and stepped back, rather than leaping forward into it."
Not at all. It takes so much less time to make a post on here than to watch or read whatever they linked me to. So I don’t know the point of this message?
Summer aka staying on tumblr till 4am making shitty text posts
If a religion involves the covering up of strictly WOMEN, that religion is OPPRESSIVE, and MISOGYNIST.
The only reason you “don’t feel oppressed” is because you’re brainwashed.
Way to denigrate Muslim women and their beliefs tho
Piracy in Merriam Webster: The unauthorized use or reproduction of another’s work.
If you accept Ayn Rand’s definition of property, when you put your effort into something, you get to choose how it is distributed, and anyone who would attempt to appropriate the product elsewhere is a thief. Your effort, your product, your choice. If, for instance, I took all of your political sentiments expressed on this page, copied them, and put them into a document, which I then put up for public sales, or free download, would that be okay with you? If so, then Verizon is not at fault, and neither is the US gov’t. They didn’t steal your data, and illegally look at it. They copied it, and gave you more features in return. If that isn’t property theft, what is?
“The theft-metaphor is problematic in the sense that a key element of stealing is that the one stolen from loses the object, which is not the case in file sharing since it is copied. There is no loss when something is copied, or the loss is radically different from losing something like your bike,” -Stefan Larsson
Way too busy to put much thought in this so you get a quote, also FYI to anyone following me if you send me a fan mail like above^ i will not answer it.
So, just for the reference, I am entitled to reproducing the contents of your personal digital files, so long as I do not find a creative way to delete them.
And I’ll try to remember that.
I don’t really know how you got that from the quote but all it said was using the “theft-metaphor” is problematic because piracy isn’t stealing. Not sure how you can misconstrue that to your own twisted definition of being “entitled to reproducing the contents” of my personal files? Besides the fact that its different in terms of music (what this started over) because one person buys the media first then shares it.
My addition was a follow up to the thing I said earlier, not the quote, which, by the way, seemed to confirm what I was asking.
If it is not stealing given that the object in question was copied and not taken in completion, then no possible cases exist for me stealing your data on your computer, say, through unauthorized P2P transfer, requiring that I leave an original copy there. Plus, you “bought” the information in the first place, with the same effort that you would use to “buy” something else. So, data mining ops are fine, and so is the NSA “buying” copied Verizon data.
I don’t believe the above is true (see the Ayn Rand thing above) because effort without coercion directly translates to property rights. See: “You Can Always Leave” by “George Ought to Help” creator “bitbutter” if you haven’t already. Very informative on what makes property property and theft theft. Wait for that part, by the way, because I only intend to use the property thing here, not draw any comparisons between you, or anyone else, and a character. Yet.
I really don’t have time to read other people’s views that you want to use for your argument.
“If it is not stealing given that the object in question was copied and not taken in completion, then no possible cases exist for me stealing your data on your computer”
Not what I’m saying at all. In the case of music, person A buys “X” from an artist. So it is now person A’s property? So how is it stealing from the artist if person A decides to share “X” free of charge with person B?
i would be so stoked if i could study nyc history in college wow
