ultra,

If buying isn’t owning, then piracy isn’t stealing.

Yep courts should be forcing them to use the word “rent”

TootSweet,

Can I steal this quote?

If commenting isn’t owning, then copying it isn’t stealing!

ultra,

And then I definitely didn’t steal this from the fediverse!

7u5k3n,

I saw that exact quote the other day in a piracy thread. First time I’d seen it… nice to be there when a meme is born.

JoShmoe,

I love this quote. Imagine giving money to someone and getting nothing in return. fml

However, just because something isn’t for sale it doesn’t mean you aren’t stealing it.

ultra,

Got it from the fediverse :p

possiblylinux127,

Just buy a disk (still DRM but way less bad)

CJOtheReal,

Doesn’t sound like its legal by EU laws…

NFTs fix this issue

Can't they just remove the file that the NFT link points to? You may "own" the token, but what it represents can disappear. Your movie, for example, is not stored on the block chain.

I wouldn’t use a purple drive, those are for security camera feeds.

I just punched in 12tb drive and that was the first one. I could drop in a 4gb scsi drive instead?

Flying_Hellfish,

WD Red for data hoarding/NAS. People like Barracuda drives as well but I’ve had bad luck with Seagate reliability in the past.

Also, purples tend to cost more because they are rated for surveillance.

sciencesebi,

LOL

Flying_Hellfish,

Now you’re talking

Aka 24/7 read writes of video files. Purples are fine for achieving just pop an SSD cache in your server

I wondered why the hdd changed colors from my inbox to seeing it here. Lol

teft,
@teft@startrek.website avatar

Because I’m a ninja.

The purple drives work well for any write-heavy workload that’s constantly writing to disk. Surveillance is just the primary use case.

WHERE CAN I GET A 24 TB MEMORY DRIVE

RIP_Cheems,
@RIP_Cheems@lemmy.world avatar

Found it, and it’s $630

Well you should own it.

I buy media to support the creators because the ad driven economy is killing the internet.

Yes, a large chunk of that doesn’t make it to the creators.

It’s still better than ad revenue by a large margin.

onion,

You can buy drm free games to download and keep forever on gog.com, and music on bandcamp.com and qobuz.com

Btw if you buy a physical copy through bandcamp, you get digital download and streaming included

jlow,

Yeah, but nothing ever for movies or series.

Even if you “buy” them it’s only loaned until the service decides otherwise or dies.

Oh, didn’t know about gobuz, thanks!

DroneRights,

There are plenty of ways to acquire permanent ownership of movies and TV, it’s just that it isn’t legal ownership.

You can buy your own Blu Rays and DVDs, and rip them onto a Plex/Jellyfin server.

what if you buy like a blu-ray

AgnosticMammal,

Itch.io too?

    The source for the article is from 2012. It’s not happening.

    BraveSentry,

    could? bothered to

    Let’s be honest, who reads the terms and conditions when they buy something? And no lying.

    EatYouWell,

    I read it on important/big purchases, but definitely not on video games.

    If they revoke my license, then I’ll just pirate it.

    VegaLyrae,

    If they revoke your license you should get a full refund tbh.

    If it's worth $n to access something, then the damages for revoking it should also be $n.

    AgnosticMammal,

    Looking at Playstation

    VegaLyrae,

    Thanks for my $3 for taking away my ability to run linux on PS3 :(

    QuinceDaPence,

    There was even a court case where they acknowledged that nobody reads those IIRC.
