    in this case hes right
    i say we start censoring morons fromt he net starting with all retards like the mpaa ceo.

    yup instead a getting 10 billion or so a year in revenue lets sue the crap out a everyone and maybe youve got a slight increase in people going to theatres so double up on lawsuits and see who can or will goto your crap.

    they say 10$ , yet charge me 12$ for a pop and pocorn
    hrmmm.
    and how did it feel to get this free movie card form welfare and sit there knowing i cant afford to get the pop and popcorn. well i aint going to go back.
    made me feel right poor. I do not feel that for 5$ a month now do i?
    so for total a 40$(with 5$ levy) a month i get all(200GB cap on this account) the music and movies i can and if your rich goto a theatre or buy the dvdr.

    SO FAR NO HUMAN BEING I HAVE TALKED TO WOULD NOT IN PRINCIPAL PAY THIS IF IT:
    A) allows unrestricted p2p use ( up/down)
    B) mod of works ( aka differant formats like mp4, aac, x264 xvid and divx.
    C) there would have to be an account where you get no levy/liscence fee and yet be protocol/traffic shaped.
    D) new regulations about tech support need ot be strengthened so that what happned to me cant happen to you.
    E)mechanisms and tracking fairly FOR ALL including amateurs and ANYONE. so i could make a film and up it and if say as example more then 200 download it then a stat roll kicks in. then you get a check in the mail.
    F)contracts by isps need to be clear and they have to stop this lying to usership. No one wants a 3-12 megabit account they cant use.
