Copyright Piracy: Poll

rhapsody

 

Let’s do a poll. Recently, The Star published an article on The United States placing 12 nations on a “priority watch list” that will subject them to extra scrutiny and could eventually lead to economic sanctions. Leading the list are China, Russia, Canada, Algeria, Indonesia, Argentina, Chile, India, Israel, Pakistan, Thailand and Venezuela. Another 33 trading partners were placed on a lower level watch list, indicating the administration is concerned about various copyright issues in those nations but does not view them as the largest threats to US businesses. Is Malaysia in the list? Click to find out and vote.

The 33 trading partners placed on this year’s watch list were: Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Finland, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, Italy, Jamaica, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

MY THOUGHTS

If we have Music Subscription services like Rhapsody.com where one could pay US$13.99 a month for unlimited number of songs to be downloaded (with copyright protection software or DRM) – then I don’t think these music companies will be losing so much on their deserved revenue. Instead, they just limit it to US or selected countries. Imagine this, for the price of a CD – I can subscribe to all the music I want and honestly – I think a lot of people would be happy to pay that amount.

The only way to really eradicate this ancient piracy problem – lower the damn price! Who would still want to get an entire album with just one or two good tracks when you can subscribe and listen to every damn song in the entire music library? Its like walking into HMV and choosing and taking any album you want – legally. 

I would be more than willing to pay. But a quick check at Rhapsody.com – showed that service is only available in the US. Ok, back to rapidshare and P2P until they come to their senses. Stupid corporations. Let’s do a poll, vote and share your thoughts.
