"you wouldn't download a" trivia (cw: sketchy business practices)
Hollywood-funded anti-piracy association Brein, the people who made the "you wouldn't download a car" ad, tried to stiff Melchior Rietveldt, the musician who composed the music for it, out of the vast bulk of his royalties. They told him the ad would only be shown at a local film festival, then stuck the ad on a bunch of DVDs and acted like they had full right to.
So, like, if you're ever wondering if anti-piracy capitalists hate piracy? The answer is "no". They'll steal and lie seven days a week and twice on Sundays. They just hate seeing people enjoy media without paying them.
Help me federate! If you see this toot, interact with it, either my boosting or replying. A simple "Hi!" will do a lot 👋
Today is an EXTRA special day. Why? Well I'm glad you asked!
So I decided I'd try something different with the blog. I wrote an article based on an interpretation of part of the GDPR, then I recorded me basically reading that article aloud.
It's an audiobook...thing...of sorts, I guess. Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think!
