Why Game Developers Should Shut Up About Used Games

gowtah Re:digital "property" (590 comments)

Amen to that. The worser part is that those businesses are making this transition with the help of the politicians in place, legislating their every wish, and criminalizing the resistance. I live in France, and we're gonna get it in the butt.

gowtah culture != industry (708 comments)

Culture will never die. The industry built upon technical restrictions from the past will, and there's no doubt something healthy and vibrant will rise from the ashes and thrive.

French Assembly Adopts 3-Strikes Bill

gowtah Re:Context? (343 comments)

Easy, they don't. The HADOPI authority harvests IPs from swarms, and the warnings are sent on the basis that your ip being there means you are a thief. Of course, as an added bonus, you cannot argue with them, unless you have installed a gov. spyware to 'secure your connection'. Oh wait, you still can't argue with them, you have to take it to courts, after your internets have been cut off. Actually, I'm not even sure you have any right to find out where or when your IP was sniffed. I, for one, heartily welcome the latest addition to our Great French Police State.

gowtah Re:Hilarious. (210 comments)

Three strikes, then the ISP is instructed by the government to cut you off.

And you're still entitled to pay the ISP for your cut-off connection. And that's not even what's worse about this law.
