Copyright absurd, Teil 378

Ich bin ja in Sachen Copyright einiges gewohnt, aber das hier ist neu:

I'm sorry, but If you are outside the UK you will not be able to use the flash version of the site due to rights restrictions.

WTF?! Ich hab' das mal zum Anlaß genommen, und George Carlins (seufz) Religions-Rant ein wenig umgedichtet.

But folks, I have to tell you, in the bullshit department a businessman can’t hold a candle to a Copyright-Lawyer. Becasue when it comes to bullshit, big-time, major-league bullshit. You have to stand in awe-in awe!– of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims: Copyright. No contest.

Copyright – easily – has to be the Greatest Bullshit Story Ever Told! Think about it: Copyright actually convinced people – many of them adults – that there’s a Way to control every Copy you do of every Song of every Album. And it has a special list of one or two things he does not want you to do.

And if you do any of these one or two things, he has a special place, full of Lawyers and FBI-Agents and Cops and Courts and Lawsuits, where he will send you to pay and suffer and pay and choke and pay and cry, forever and ever, till the end of time. But Copyright loves you!

It loves you, and it needs money!
