Aren´t you mixing stalinism and communism?
Your talking ideal communism, I'm talking about the way people have skewed and enforced communism, the "real" communism cannot exist with people because people are flawed and greedy.
About streaming etc http://img46.imagesh.../capturena.jpg/
vs Net income increase US$ 2.539 billion (2010)
Can't view your link cause its not available to my geographic region.
You only get income for streaming when they have copyright permission. However, for instance megavideo, you don't get anything which is why videos get removed for copyright infringement.
well I could go on and on, but its not good for health to think so much
Nothing personal I3lessed, I found your posts very calm and balanced always
I don't take offense for intelligent posts that have more thought behind them then "I'm not happy with the freedom I have so other people should suffer for me and get hit by terrorist attacks." Also I'm enjoy the sarcasm but really, nobody has every post they make as calm and balanced, everyone has something that they have a strong opinion on and I've hit 3 or 4 topics like that lately, if you feel that thats enough to judge my posting history on thats fine because they are as I said opinions I feel strongly about
. I have no problem giving people respect when they aren't wishing terrorist attacks on other people and put some thought into their posts. For people who do nothing but spam and post opinions with no thought behind them, well then its harder
Ultimately I wouldn't conclusively say whether streaming has had a negative effect on the entertainment industry, IMO its been positive in the music industry allowing bands to get they're names out easier etc. etc. However in the movie industry I'd say its had a negative effect because ultimately streaming just means reduced sales. But all of that is really irrelevant to the topic because the fact is it doesn't matter whether its good or bad streaming illegally is ultimately stealing. I'm not claiming I don't do it or that I care if people do but I do however respect the fact that the Government is trying to protect the entertainment industry by putting in laws like this. And don't say that Hollywood etc has enough money already, which it does, but this will also have an impact on smaller artists, indie film companies etc, etc.
