problems not with Bobby Joe Smith
Problem is with China and Russia selling to Walmart
and swap Servers in Russia .Adding hidden data numbers to the Recorder camera Much like serial number would track the real bad guys.They track camera DVD recorder unit where it was made and where it was sold. And not the guy who got a rip off copy from walmart. There should also be a rule or Law for protecting fair use of Material for the customer.Or no one going to win at this war.

Tired of media crying
I am so tired of Music companies and hollywood crying we want a cut from everything with our images, like they arnt getting enough money at the box office can we say 10$ afternoon showings anyone? Or how about the 20$ per a movie in the store? Or the Merchanidise sold with their images at your local wal-mart or sears? Honestly they need to remember somthihng i am sure their mothers once told them "Imation is the greatest compliment you could get" so like that youtube with Superman clips and superman song that someone edited Great for him and thoes who watched it,

In all honestly it is like free Advertising, I mean If people hated your work they wouldnt record it and put it on youtube. I know on my myspace account I have clips of my Favorite movies as a creative way to let freinds see what movies I like and why and I have found alot things I Acuatly like on other peoples sites and have ended up buying copies of myself. But I gusse big media compinies are like my three year old son allways going to be yelling MINE MINE MINE YOU CANT HAVE IT ITS MINE!
