Multimedia, AV "Will the two screens be shown back to back? Will each screen last for 10 seconds each? Will each screen be unskippable? Yes, yes, and yes. An ICE spokesman tells me that the two screens will 'come up after the previews, once you hit the main movie/play button on the DVD. At which point the movie rating comes up, followed by the IPR Center screen shot for 10 secs and then the FBI/HSI anti-piracy warning for 10 secs as well. Neither can be skipped/fast forwarded through.'" That'll surely teach the pirates who don't buy DVDs or Blu-rays.

I though it is rather obvious. With all the tangible assets moving away, most of the US economy thrives on intelectual property and services.

As weak assets as they are, you can expect politicians to guard them for as long as they can. Yes, that's an extremely stupid and harmful strategy (if only because it limits us, not the Chinese) but who said politicians are smart?

We collectively choose to promote such smart people to their positions ...ultimately, systems of governance are largely a reflection of societies.
