The largest copyright pirates are the large corporations, particularly in the content distribution business. Yes, those companies who scream the loudest that their customers are ‘pirating’ movies, songs, books, etc. In this series, we are going to look at cases where these companies have engaged in large scare copyright infringement. In all cases I will […]
And the worst thing is that Mike hasn’t done anything major since.

Cliff has drawn some interesting conclusions from all this, and is changing parts of his business model to address the issues that came up. I wish him the best of luck in this. I think he’s on the right track, and will see considerable success come his way.
We have a government, that doesn’t want to govern. We have a population that is so upset that 208,228 people have joined a Facebook Group in protest.
