Internet is a place where:
People sharing corporation's "property" is compared to attacking ships (piracy)
Corporations sharing between them user's data is "respecting their privacy" and "improving their services"
@arielcostas Yes but also no 😂
I agree that sharing user data is not ok, piracy isn't ok either though.
@AaronTheIssueGuy when the options are that or installing a DRM malware on your device, I prefer "stealing"
@arielcostas yeah what? Piracy is equivalent to stealing… people put money and time into something and want money out of it. Privacy on the other hand isn’t something that you are putting time into, you are putting no money or time into Facebook for you making money. Again privacy does have to be more upfront IMO.
@caughtquick I don't think "piracy" in computers is stealing, the owner is not losing their copy. It gets more people to listen to that music or play that proprietary game, and they would've probably not paid for it, so they didn't "lose money".
I'd prefer a way of supporting artists directly without buying a full album or a DRMd license for a song
@arielcostas Das Internet ist ein Ort, wo es folgendermaßen aussieht:
Wenn Leute Unternehmens"eigentum" teilen, wird das mit Schiffsangriffen verglichen (Piraterie).
Wenn Unternehmen untereinander Nutzerdaten austauchen, ist das "Wir respektieren Ihre Privatsphäre" und "Um unsere Services zu verbessern".
@arielcostas Don't be so negative, or you could upset the "happy few" of the internet with their need for simpleton optimism and dull happiness.
