"He could foresee a situation in a decade’s time when there would be virtually no orchestral film work. Illegal downloading would so decimate the film industry that orchestral recording sessions would be a thing of the past. In this connection I was reminded that three of London’s main orchestral recording studios have closed since 2000" - How many top 10s did they have? Nobody cares about classic anymore! Every 12 year old wants the collected works of the masters... Twat!
"My sole objective is to draw noble Lords’ attention to the cataclysmic consequences for all the creative industries if this area remains unregulated." Your sole objective is to earn the ******** from the ******** industry! It already is regulated...Twat.
“the digital economy underpins our whole economy and builds our national competitiveness”. - so we have more people managing bigger networks to download more instead of playing a violin and thinking that they should be paid as much as a heart surgeon.
"No, not when there are no longer shops selling the physical products and when the internet has become a sort of Somalia of unregulated theft and piracy." So ban e-commerce as well?
"But, as we have seen throughout history, and recently in the financial markets, there are dire consequences when people drift down the path of unregulated behaviour." Time for the Clown to start turning us into a Stalinist state and monitoring everything that we do...
What do you mean they do already?
Who's that at the door?
Be right back....................
Insulting two countries at once - what a wanka
IFPI CEO John Kennedy said: "The Pirate Bay has managed to make Sweden, normally the most law-abiding of EU countries, look like a piracy haven with intellectual property laws on a par with Russia."
Oh Paris, since I assume Mr. Kennedy spends a lot of time.... well being a wanka
.... we are all so much richer for your comment.
I assume that you are testing us by not having a period after "etc", since you appear to be using abbreviation of the Latin words "et cetera".
This would translate your sentence to read along the lines of: "Logs, eyes, motes and other things and other things"
I am, however, at a loss to understand why you are missing a comma after motes and the first "etc". I will however refrain from sarcasm and pointing our you obvious lack of command of basic grammar.
I would like to point out that there are three general cases where there can be confusion in when to use an apostrophe: wankers indicating a number of wankers has no apostrophe, wanker's as in ownership of an item by a single wanker has the apostrophe placed before the "s" and wankers' indicating a group of wankers places the apostrophe after the "s"..
"Under what circumstances should the apostrophe s be used?" Could possibly be written to "Under what circumstances should the apostrophe be used in conjunction with s?" but that is probably a matter of taste.
Good reference to logs and eyes - very Freudian.
The only way (that I can see) to bring the purveyors of finest quality spam down is to hit the only part you can really find, trash their servers and increase the cost of them doing business.
Hell they want people to log on and buy their goods - everybody should.
1) Never click on the link in the email - cut and paste the address into a browser.
2) Order 3 or 4 tons of pharmaceutical enhancements.
3) Put in dummy address and credit card number.
None of the spam sites that I have seen do a real-time credit card check so the more dummy orders they get the more time is wasted as each one has to be manually checked and updated. The more realistic an address looks the more chance there is of somebody wasting time trying to process an order.
BTW - Credit card numbers are Mod10
