We spend millions trying to enforce current copyright legislation. Meanwhile, many artists struggle by on tiny incomes, and inflexible rules mean we're paralysed with fear and inaction when confronted with innovative ideas. Here's my ideas on creating a system that puts artists at its heart.

- The answer to your question could have been answered by a twelve year old, because I don't have the source for javac & java nor do I work at Oracle! An academic like you knew my answer before asking, so I can conclude that you're on someone-els's agenda ! end of discussion!Dec 19, 2011
- Our deceased prins Bernhard once said (in similar words), people won't understand, if they're being paid to not understand ! I think the same goes for you Werner ! I don't know who's paying you, but I think you're here to influence the digital agenda in favor of your industry's cost savings on intellectual property infringement ! In simple words, you're somehow loyal to the paying side ! That's why a moral/ethic discussion on this topic with you is completely useless !Dec 19, 2011
- Since 13 November 2006, the sun microsystems javac compiler is opensourced (this is the compiler that was bought buy oracle). An implementation of a java virtual machine can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Java_virtual_machines in the section 'Free and open source Implementations'. So you can access the compiler and test new ideas.
Implying that I have an agenda is silly. I'm bringing forth rational arguments. I'll summarize them.
- nobody told you to use java. You choose it
- nobody asked you to pay for the virtual machine. You got that for free. Without waranty !
- what you want to solve is, as far as I see it, not solvable.
- even if you would have the ultimate copyprotection, you might not see those 'losses' materialized. The question then: is it worth it ?
Your arguments go along the following lines:
- 'they' don't want to fix the problem. With intent so that the chinese can reap the benefits of your hard work
- I have a solution, but refuse to demonstrate it and will not sell it either
- this werner guy has an agenda and cannot be trusted. Ad honimen attacks are not very nice and in this case also incorrect.Dec 20, 2011
- I had my Java training in 2004 so I should have checked the source again. Perhaps you're not on the paying side's agenda then and I apologize to you for saying so then. I just don't understand why you're so resistant to having Oracle work on security. It just makes no sense to have millions implement a security gap whereas this could be fixed once and for all by the main manufacturer. They also want their product to be successful right ?
We're all dependent on underlying technology. I can't develop products and also develop compilers at the same time, there's just no time enough in this incredibly fast moving economy. We all specialize in certain fields and one can't be a specialist in all disciplines. Perhaps you're so resistant, because you have your solution and other's don't, but you don't care and that sets you apart and makes you feel proud and I do understand that. We're all humans!Dec 20, 2011
- I really liked your posting. Like the article sated, "There are lots of potential ideas out there for new systems of recognition and reward – but too often they are killed stone dead by rigid, pre-digital legislation". Spotify is a great example of how it took several years to gain foothold in all european countries. I'm in Ireland and at the moment it's currently not available in Ireland, but I already have been using it for a number of years because I created an account in the North of Ireland (U.K). I can use it in both countries, but I can only create an account in one (U.K.) and not 10km away (ROI). Due to legal reasons it has taken Spotify a while to reach all European countries and for those same reasons it seems more appealing to start a tech startup company in the U.S. than in Europe. Spotify got released in the U.S. before it was released to all European countries (i.e. Ireland), that does not sound right.Jan 26, 2012
- ja okee als het met de muzikant zo gaat.
dan ben ik het er mee eens.
maar de rechten worden heel vaak afgekocht,
in het begin, door grotere organisaties.
op het moment dat de muzikant geen geld heeft.
de rechten worden zelfs op de beurs verhandelt.
en dit kan niet en moet gewoon stoppen.
rechten van een muzikant mogen niet ontnomen kunnen worden.
want zoals het nu is steunen we alleen die grote jongens die vette winsten maken.Jun 3, 2012
