Suit Blight

There are times when I would like to scrape together all the world-media-owning suits (Rupert Murdoch and similar pond scum), all the copyright lawyers, all the net ignorant politicians and all the other olde worlde corporate executives and related douchebags together in front of a very large stone wall and blast the living crap out of the lot of them with a few hundred thousand bazookas.

Oh how we'd cheer.


The Internet is GLOBAL. Get over it!

There is no excuse for this sort of endless copyright bullshit being drooled out by stuffwits still working to a 19th Century business model.

The above example is not very important in the scheme of things, but note that it is for a smegging 21 second promo! A mighty media empire will crumble and fall if a non-US citizen should be allowed to glimpse it! No money to be made here!




Damn. I've run out of exclamation points.

Warm up the bazookas...


  1. Not to diminish the point of your rant (which I agree with wholeheartedly), but the vid on Phil's site still worked for me...

  2. Well, ta Burt :-), but it still isn't visible *here* (Canberra Australia). Where are you?

  3. Hmph. OK, I followed some advice and did a search from within Youtube and found a link that will work in Oz.

    ...But I'm satill pissed I had to jump the unecessary hoops to see it. So there. ;-)

  4. A-ha! That clears up the confusion -- I'm in the US so maybe that's why I can still see it. Which, of course, actually reinforces the original point, since if it's available only regionally, then that says that someone somewhere has control over that sort of thing and is choosing to limit it. That equals stupid in my book.
