    No content creators means no content. Everyone loses. The consumers and the producers.  Hollywood is not the sole creators of content.  They have never been.  Content has been created all over the world for thousands of years.  What an idiotic thing to say.

    I don't have a false premise of IP. You do.  IP laws are constitutional weather you like them or not.  They have been upheld in The supreme court in the US.  They are being upheld and enforced in almost every major economy in the world.  Even in Russia and China they are realizing the importance of IP because they are now becoming producers of IP also.

    You seems to buying the nonsense spewed by the tech industry mouthpiece Mike Masnic over at Tech dirt or maybe Torrentfreak.  What is so Ironic there are no fiercer defenders of their IP than the huge mega tech companies.

      The argument that content is created because people get paid for copyrights is just silly.

      No art was produced before modern copyright? Nobody would make art if they didn't have the opportunity to make money?

      You know that's not true.

      •  Xplain to me how a film like The Avengers gets (0+ / 0-)

        made if no one involved gets paid.  Please explain this to me.  How old are you?

        You seem to be under the impression that all music TV and films get made by amateurs who do it in their spare time.  There are tons of professional who make those products for living that have housing, healthcare and food needs just like anyone else that works for a living.  

        So you are saying they should work for free so people like you can download it for free on the internet.?

        None of the block buster movies that are the top downloaded contednt on bit torrent sites can get made without people getting paid to put in the thousands and thousands of man hours involved in making this movies.  Grow up.
