John Dvorak Thinks France is Right to Open Up iTunes.

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 3/29/2006 10:42:00 PM
Dvorak writes that even though the French are crazy, they are right that Apple's insistence on maintaining iTues as a closed system is "BS", a waste of law enforcement and legislative resources, and the by product of heavy lobbying by the entertainment industry:

"While the world moans and groans about the French and their attitude of cultural superiority, you sometimes have to give them credit, often in hindsight, for their ability to see through all the BS out there."

John also points that the punishment for piracy is ironically and unjustifiably harsher than more egregious crimes:

The French are also skeptical about the whole movie-piracy phenomenon. Why should illegally downloading the equivalent of a $19 disc result in a $250,000 fine and 5 years in prison?

While law enforcement is focused on protecting the wealth of the ultra wealthy, it is failing to address real crime:

So while drug-dealing, cocaine use, murder, mayhem, armed robbery, rape, and illegal corporate shenanigans run rampant in the U.S.A., law enforcement has to be on the lookout for movie downloading, to protect Hollywood billionaires.
