Record Label Pirates

Maybe “Artists against the Record Label Lobby Pirates” sounds better? Gov­ern­ments all over the world think about restric­tions of private rights. Some of them already did so, it is an ongoing process. Private copies? No! Record a film shown on tv? No! You’ll even have to instantly forget every bit of inform­a­tion that was broadcast (even free to air), if the lobby asso­ci­ations have their way. Even if you go to cinema, you have to tolerate this flat “Anti Piracy” ads. Who has bought this bloody expensive ticket, I ask you? Who is paying for this ad? Who has to feel guilty if he or she recorded a film shown on TV? Well, ok, come down again :)

Today at least some artist asso­ci­ations stroke back. Have a look at the links below. Great campaigns, IMHO!

Firefox … things like that

Have a look at this. Even though, Firefox is not the ultimate browser it is by far the most usable in my opinion. Well, ok, they could review the CSS2 imple­ment­a­tion. Firefox still doesn’t pass the ACID2 test.
