Poll: Online piracy - who is at fault?

The media companies [TV/Movie/music industry] blames the public and the governments for there being an illegal downloading problem.

What do you think? Where does the problem lay?

Is it the media companies themselves and the way the release and/or distribute their content?

Is it the public who are greedy and don't want to pay to watch shows/movies/etc?

Is it the governments who don't do enough to stop piracy?

Or, is it all of the above.

I'll shut this poll down on Sunday 22nd of May 2016 at 12 noon Adelaide time.

Johnny Depp needs to realise that even though he might be an actor, he is not above the law. We have strict animal regulations for a reason ... unlike other countries, we don't have rabies here... so him ranting about his dogs being banned is nothing short of being a selfish fool with an over inflated ego.

People are at the core of any good business. That’s why it’s important that technology works for them, and not the other way around.

"I social media danno diritto di parola a legioni di imbecilli che prima parlavano solo al bar dopo un bicchiere di vino, senza danneggiare la collettività.
Venivano subito messi a tacere, mentre ora hanno lo stesso diritto di parola di un Premio Nobel. È l'invasone degli imbecilli."

In this city, they can't do any roadworks without finding antique Heritage. This is amazing.

No... They were brilliant in the choreographed slapstick that they did. They actually, in their time, were ahead of everyone else.

But in the 21st century, that type of slapstick doesn't work - combined with the fact that the people that were actually the ones doing that genius are dead and, therefore, any successors would be pale imitations.

This is from the South Australian Police

These shopping centre car-parks are getting tighter and tighter!

A crane will need to be used to remove a car from the rear of a Morphett Vale shopping centre, following a bizarre crash this afternoon.

Just after 1pm, the driver of a Holden sedan turning from Ragan Road in to Hillier Road, lost control of the vehicle careering through a fence and crashing down an embankment. The car eventually came to rest on its side, wedged between a retaining wall and a rear of a shop.

Two 20-year-old male passengers from the Commodore were taken to the Flinders Medical Centre with minor injuries. The driver a 17-year-old boy from Hallett Cove was uninjured.

South Coast Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash, but wet roads and drive inexperience appear to be contributing factors to the crash.

Police wish to remind all drivers adjust their driving behaviour and slow down on wet slippery roads!

Unsurprising!
Industry, Innovation and Science Minister Christopher Pyne appears to have inadvertently misled the ABC's Q&A program about key facts regarding the National Broadband Network project, repeating a set of common misconceptions about the initiative on air last night.

Deckers Corporation sues Aussie business for using the words "Ugg boots"

In Australia the flat-soled, sheepskin boots are considered a quintessentially Australian clothing item, and as a result "ugg boots" is considered a generic term for the style and is used by multiple manufacturers.

However in 1999 "UGG Australia" was successfully registered as a trademark of Deckers Corporation, which has an annual turnover of $2.4 billion. That trademark now stands in the US, China and the EU, meaning Australian manufacturers like Mr Oygur are unable to sell in overseas markets.

READ my About section first before circling
Introduction
Well, where do we start. I dislike writing about myself as I never really know what to say that you'll find interesting. But here goes.

Welcome:
Welcome to my profile. Below is a brief overview of my beliefs and what you may expect if you decide to circle me. Mind you, I do post a lot of stuff as "public" so you probably have seen quite a bit.

You wont find any photos of me on here though - I like my privacy and my anonymity, but that doesn't mean I am hiding anything. Just prefer to keep my online existence separate from my real life :)

Now the for "boring" stuff :)

Religion:
Oh that dreaded subject. -I do not believe in any religion as I do not believe in mythical beings or fantasy after-life worlds. However having said that, I respect others who wish to believe.-

Only piece of advise I will give you is this - don't try to convert me and don't spam my threads with religious comments or derogatory remarks against a race/religion/person. ... it will result in an instant ban.

Politics:
First of all I am a dual citizen [Australian and European] and believe in a united democratic Europe. I support - faults and all - the European Union and what it is attempting to achieve.

I see the European Union as the "seed" to regional federations [which have already emerged like UNISAR, African Union etc] before a final global federation. It will take time, but it is in the process of being achieved. Hopefully I will be alive when it does become reality.

If I had to place myself in the political spectrum, I would probably be somewhere in the middle of the Left and the Right. But this doesn't mean I dont support certain aspects of both extremes.

I am pro-Israeli but I am also pro-Palestinian and want to see both people have their own countries. Over the last 3 years, have become very pro-Palestinian in their pursuit of a free homeland. This does not mean I oppose a Jewish state, however it is becoming obvious that Israel really has no interest in seeing a Palestinian homeland. And in my view, Hamas is not a terrorist organisation. We need to remember that they were democratically elected after years of PLO/PLA rule which saw nothing achieved. Armed struggle is a right for all people. Democratic principles must be supported and not labeled as "terrorist" simply because we disagree with the decision of the people.

Don't like that? Deal with it.

Circling You: 
If you have nothing in your public profile and little or nothing in your About section, dont expect me to circle you. If there is a justifiable reason why your profile is empty, then message me and tell me. Should point out that simply +1'ing me comments or simply circling me wont result in me adding you.

Also, if i do add you back, please message me and tell me your interests. Its one way of knowing what you are into [and what you are not].

Discussions:
Spammers are not welcome. End of story. Discussions, well they are good, but I like  civilised ones so if you want to talk about things, keep personal insults out of them. It isn't that hard :)

Humanity:
This bit is easy. We are all one species, despite the fact that many think differently. Each race, religion, culture etc has its good points and its bad points. By the same token, I will not tarnish a whole people simply because some still act like Neanderthals.

Google Plus:
Been on here since July 2nd 2011, so am one of the original. I dumped Facebook and Twitter. Too much garbage and lack of privacy on the first, and too much spam on the second. Plus the discussions on G+ are 1000% more mature than either of the other two.

What I don't want to see:
I don't want to see tits and ass, I don't want to see continual postings to your business or a business you have interests in. For the first one - there's Xtube etc. For the second one - establish a business page on G+.
And above all .. dont spam my stream and/or posts. Its the easiest way of getting blocked and/or reported. No exceptions.

What I would like:
If I add you or you add me, send me a message and tell me what your interests are [excluding the above about what I don't want to see], so I can add you to the appropriate circle/s....

Other Stuff:
An enigma, a mystery, an illusion .. what i am is not what i necessarily am. .... sums me up quite nicely.:)

One of my local pubs that I used to visit quite regularly. Pre renovations: This used to be one excellent pub where the food was excellent, the decor was old style and the service was second to none. It had small outdoor area which was good to get away from the noise inside. Post renovations: The service has degraded even though it is now bigger due to incorporating the small outdoor area and expanding backwards. The staff aren't as friendly and its way way too noisy. If you had to compare it to anything, it is half way between a pub and a nightclub [without the music]. The owners can do a lot to improve the Service and the staff selections.

A very busy hotel and can get very crowded but by the same token, it is a great place to spend a few hours with friends. Food prices are reasonable, alcohol - lots of it, and the crowd is pretty well mixed.

The Y Hotel is a YWCA hotel, so don't expect first class service. Having said that, its affordable, the rooms are clean, you have a choice of communal bathrooms or in-room [depending on what you book], and its a stone's throw from the CBD and Oxford Street.

No complaints about the service. Had heard lots of great reviews so checked it out with friends. The waitresses in the restaurant were prompt and helpful [even offered to take our orders before serving a table of 20 who were there first, to avoid our dinner being served late]. Only complaint I truly have is internal signage needs improving so one knows how to get from the bar to the restaurant, and the bar lady needs to smile and [act if necessary] that she is having a good day.

Love this hotel. No poker machines!! The crowd is extremely mixed, not only age wise but also culturally. You never know who will be in there. Have gone in one afternoon and its predominantly "suits", then the next time you think you have walked into a lesbian or gay den, and the next time its predominantly tradies. The service is very good, the atmosphere is is relaxed. Although it doesn't serve food, a number of food outlets will delivery right into the hotel to where you are sitting.
