RE: They're trying to ruin the internet again.

DRM already has a bunch of shitty flaws. All DRM ever does if screw things up and screw over everyone but the corporation using it. It also makes things unneccesarily complicated.

Perhaps I should've used bad grammar/punctuation/spelling in order to show that I was joking. Shrug Or were you joking too? I can't tell. Fucking Internet.

RE: They're trying to ruin the internet again.

Indeed. As if typing on a mobile device isnt a bitch, I cant portray tone. So I generally resort to using improper(awfully improper because my relationship with english grammat isnt very close. Sometimes I like to warp the rules into a format I believe better portraying my thoughts and meanings. Language is not yet advanced enough is the reason) grammar/spelling.

In summary, the Internet needs to be recoded in order to portray emotions correctly.

RE: They're trying to ruin the internet again.

If Im mad, your keyboard should send a jolt of electric through your body when you press on the "portray emotion" button above me post.

If Im happy, your device will pump out some..."happy gas".

If sad, you will be sprayed in the eyes with pure concentrated onion juice.

The problem is that DRM is needed. Because otherwise people will steal things.

Jop confirmed Sony representative.

But really, people circumvent DRM easily, and the only people it hinders are honest people.

The thing is though it's shown that DRM DOESN'T WORK. All it does is punish those that actually bought it instead of those that didn't, besides most people that pirate shit get it from groups that know their way around DRM and can disable it, plus this will lead people to pirating as well.

I only pirate games if

A) They used to sell physical copies but not anymore
B) It has DRM besides Steam.

Remember the Nintendo DS, and the disastrous piracy scene for it? Well, the Nintendo 3DS now has really strong DRM and that piracy scene has basically disappeared. And it doesn't "punish those that actually bought it" like shitty DRM.

So, DRM does work.

Bring more examples.

They're trying to ruin the internet again.

I just bought $105 worth of old DRM-free games, because they're good games.

Quite often I'll buy a game and then still pirate it anyway, just so I don't have to deal with the copy protection (if it's particularly annoying, as they often are).

Actually it hasn't. Also keep in mind that the 3DS was a large change in the workings of the 3ds, so people are still trying to figure out how the fuck it works...just give it a bit longer(also keep in mind that the 3ds too awhile to gain steam)

As you speak, there are modders working on it, and 3DS has more years in front of it than behind it.

If my PC could run modern games, I'd SO do that.

They're trying to ruin the internet again.

Hey, W3C.
How about you ban YouTube? Obviously, they are 'pirating' content. What about Facebook, were they can share things that are 'copyrighted'? Oh yeah, and ban public domain. And downloading files. Google. BING. Email and, of course, the 'dangerous' 'copyright-infringing' Wikipedia. How about next, you ban the Internet? The whole internet has 'pirated' content.

But, no, don't stop there! How about you ban Telnet, too? And TOR? And proxies? HELL, even ban ANDROID DEVICES! They are basically a mobile version of the Linux OS. Next, BAN WINDOWS AND APPLE, TOO! They 'stole' from UNIX to build their computers! Ban the new Atari, Nintendo, and other gaming OSes! And phones! And texting! WHY DON'T YOU BAN THE WHOLE FUCKING PLANET, WHILE YOU'RE AT IT?! It is obviously pirated content! Ban people, too, as they are obviously pirated copies of the god in various religion! Ban school, too! They shamlessly copy ideas from other people. Ban individual thought, as it may bring up copyright infrigement! THEN, of course, ban THE WHOLE. FUCKING. UNIVERSE. It is full of copyright infrigement.

So, I was obviously being sarcastic (except the school part, of course...) about what I was saying, but that's exactly what W3C is saying. I mean, come on, guys! You should know better! You people act like morons when you are supposed to be programming geniuses! I hope you idiots realize that DRM is a load of shit, which would go down as a badly executed idea, just like gun control, compulsory education, and various other bad ideas in history.

FUCK DRM! GO 'PIRACY'!

W3C didn't ban anything. They made it possible for people to prevent theft, of their own things.
