The $8 Billion iPod

Great, great TED talk from Rob Reid on the funny numbers often promoted by music and movie lobby groups in the context of copyright.


  1. irreverent campaign to answer outragous claims
    There is a campaign to send copied currency to MPAA and RIAA (Canadian equivalents are CMPDA and CRIA).

    Although, obviously tongue-in-cheek, the points made are never-then-less logical and poignant. If a copy holds the same value as an original, shouldn’t this also apply to money?

  2. Priceless!
    So, why… WHY don’t industry lobbiests have to *prove* losses before politicians force laws through? When I sue someone, I have to prove every penny.
