Wonsan man executed for illegally selling CDs and USBs with S. Korean movies, dramas and music videos
In late April, North Korean authorities publicly executed a man living in Wonsan (Gangwon Province) who illegally sold CDs and USBs filled with South Korean movies, dramas, and music videos.
How dare you bring actual practical logic into emotional matters.No, it is not. In fact I have purchased content only to share it. Had my need to share it not been there, the purchase would not take place.
I have also downloaded music and after enjoying it supported the artists on Bandcamp.
Affordable DRM free subscription services are the best alternative.... or open lending as if from a library.... however every company want's to device lock everything which leads to nothing getting off the ground. Everything currently is structured towards creating walled gardens for the economic elite..... the snobs want their privilege, they dislike the unwashed masses having in their minds equal luxuries..... and the psychopathic capitalist extremists want money that does not exist to give.But the truth is that I am likely to obtain something with no benefit to the creator, if it is not affordable to me, which is on me, but not only on me. The system can surely be better, and I, like most people, don't respond well to any sort of punitive control.
Basically, just make the content I wish to engage with affordable in the context of my economy, is that too much to ask?
