Almost everyday it seems , software companys keep pumping out brand new
software that kills the day befores in that it is more sophisticated and more in
tune with the needs of todays superusers , office users , and home users . Yet ,
at the same time , the software theft industry in growing at an even faster rate
, costing software companies billions of dollars a year . The piece of shit
government can put as many copyright laws in a book as they feel , but soon it
will be virtually impossible to stop .
Although computer illiteracy may still lurk by the thousands , computer
intelligance lurks by the millions and even billions . We are going to bypass
any laws you throw at us .There is no stopping it . America has gotta wake up ,
no matter what kind of warning you put out , or whatever other restrictions you
try to enforce , there will always be another way . No matter what kind of
encryption there will always be someone out there , wether it be me or the next
guy , whose intelligence is greater then those who make the software .
According to the federal government , that by the way has no real
control over america since they can\'t even control themselves , software is
protected from the moment of its creation . As soon as that software hits the
store it is protected by the United States Federal Government . Yet , thousands
of software titles have been put out there , and the government hasn\'t protected
a fucking thing from happening . What a joke , how can we let such morons run
this nation . The law in the USA states that a person may who buys the software
may (I) copy it to a single computer and (II) make a copy for “archival purposes”
. This also holds true in canada with the exception of the user only being able
to make a backup copy instead of the USA law which is allowed for both archival
and backup . In actuality , the government can not baby sit everyone who buys
software . How are they gonna know when John Doe buys a copy of Duke Nukem 3D
and wants to install on Jane Smith\'s computer so they can get some network games
going on . Yea right , they have control . People who do get caught have a
chance of being fined of up to a 1 million dollars ? Jesus , all I did was
install a program . Ahh... the beauty of America .
In a nutshell , the probability of someone stopping it from happening is
slim to none . You take it away from the internet , we will goto mail , and so
begins the cycle . Once you are so caught up in trying to stop one thing , we
will go back and mess you up again . God bless America !
