Pirates will always win

Interesting article on the NY Times site (a few weeks old – sorry. Been sitting in my inbox for a little bit whilst I tried to find time for this post) about pirating online.

I find it humorous that the video mentioned (below) uses the ‘cat tv’ format to throw off copyright-police-engines. Now you know why, in case you’ve maybe run across one of these silly videos.

My whole analogy of pirating (instead of whack-a-mole, as mentioned in the article) is a water balloon: you squeeze one end, and the water will move to another part of the balloon. Changing the elasticity of the balloon (laws) or the hand (enforcement) won’t work. It’s content distribution (the water) that some genius, somewhere, is going to figure out.
