The blog of the wandering douche

For recognition of the inhumane, thoughtless, greedy, and the negligent. And douchebags.

I may be preaching to the converted (both of you out there)…

Hilariously enough, this image was the result of google image searching for "Rhino in high heels", but I feel it captures some important nuances worthy of representation within a debate such as this...Here’s a quick Farking by way of background on the copyright debate. As usual, the article linked is a piece of superficial shit dealing with “WKRP in Cincinatti” reruns and other great debates of our times, but the comments below the link are a good introduction to some of the bigger issues within the copyright debate.

So where’s the meat in this? Basically, that the concept of copyright has been directly transferred from the physical media transfer model that has applied right through history, and forcefully applied without considered adaptation to digital media. It’s like forcing a rhino into high heels. It really just doesn’t work.What’s my evidence for suggesting such a fundamental miscomprehension?

Skynet. That is all.
