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.

Copyright isn't given you (are you an author, btw?) unconditionally - it's a privilege - a limited monopoly for distributing "your" creation for a specified period of time, granted you by the government. Yes, the government went crazy, and so many of the laws it creates, but that's a whole different story.

If not for that legal settings, if you gave your idea/song/book/video to another person, you would immediately stop being its sole owner. That's because the only natural kind of intellectual property is a secret.
