Multimedia, AV I generally need a billion words to explain the problems inherit in the current copyright system. Joss Stone needs just one minute. "I don't care how you hear it - as long as you hear it." Can we please appoint Ms Stone as supreme overlord of the universe?

If you want to call yourself an idealist, fight for a ideal where the artists get more

I'm an idealist, not a fighter ;)


Fair enough... peacefully promote an ideal? ;)

Fair enough... peacefully promote an ideal? ;)

I do actually do that.

Like for example I give out free Spotify accounts to friends so they can try it out and thus listen to music through a really great service and still perfectly legally. Or if I find them using pirated apps I try to find out if they could use a free or F/OSS app instead.

Though I'm a pragmatist in the sense that if a free/F/OSS app doesn't suit them then I won't throw a fit about it nor do I go and tell them to destroy their pirated stuff or such.
