Internet & Networking Via TorrentFreak: "Entertainment industry lobby groups often describe file-sharers as thieves who refuse to pay for any type of digital content. But not everyone agrees with this view. Swedish telecom giant Ericsson sees copyright abuse as the underlying cause of the piracy problem. In a brilliant article, Rene Summer, Director of Government and Industry Relations at Ericsson, explains how copyright holders themselves actually breed pirates by clinging to outdated business methods." No faeces, Sherlock.

Well, not really in this scenario. If you needed more gas or a spare part for your car, you could simply 'print' whatever you need, or just make a brand new copy of the car every time you needed more gas ;) (I'd assume there'd be a way to 'delete' objects, as well as print them.)


By the time that is possible we'll all

a) be underwater
b) cars won't need petrol (gas) to run
C) both a) and b) (everybody drives electric boats).
