Why do I have to suggest anything?
[/quote]

Because you're dismissing these efforts, yet at the same time you're claim that you're not saying the authorities should simply allow piracy to happen. The problem is, if all you do is disparage anti-piracy efforts without proposing your own solution, it essentially means that the authorities shouldn't do anything and should just overlook piracy - whether you're actually saying it or not.

So, what's your suggestion? Or are you just claiming to say that something needs to be done, while shooting down everything that's being done?

^ it's not my job to come up with solutions. And just because I said that their efforts will not work does not mean I condone the actions.

Hopefully with the new app encryption feature the piracy will reduce.

And, unfortunately, just because you don't condone the actions doesn't mean you think the authorities should do something about it, either.

When your only job is to play armchair critic and say that every effort that's being made won't work but offer no suggestions of your own, the end result is identical than saying that we should just let piracy slide. You closet piracy supporters really need to come up with better tactics than just shooting everything down but offering no solutions of your own, so that in the end nothing is done to stop piracy.

^ wow, you are full of it. I guess no one can have an opinion. huh. And I didn't speak out against rape or murder dith but hey according to you I must support it.

its called giving an opinion. and history had proven these methods do not work. I do not have to give a solution.

but I'm done with you and will not argue anymore about giving my opinion.

If you try to shut down attempts to curb rape or murder and refuse to offer any solution of your own, then yes, you support rape and murder. It's not that difficult.

It's also been proven that policemen do not work at eliminating crime. Going by your brilliant logic we shouldn't bother spending taxpayer dollars on maintaining a police force, either. :rolleyes:

No one is saying anything about stamping out piracy completely. The best anyone can realistically hope for is to keep it down to manageable levels using a combination of methods - methods which you are trying to shoot down based on the logic that they "do not work" while refusing to offer a solution that "works". This is different from saying that nothing should be done against piracy, how? Please explain.

You're free to offer your opinion, but at least try to be honest about your motives.

... tie in live server services that check for legitimate checkpoints upon access each and every time. ...
[/quote]

Already done. Google operates a Licensing service as part of the Play Store. The app has to opt into it though, and even that doesn't completely prevent piracy since android apps are easy to decompile.

Does the FBI not remember what Anonymous did when they took down Megaupload? Did the government still not learn their lesson?

About a month after that 25 Anonymous members got arrested by Interpol. I bet the FBI knew exactly how Anonymous would react, and waited for it.

Do you really think taking down a few websites for a couple of days would teach the U.S. goverment a lesson?

[quote name='giantpotato' timestamp='1345644269' post='595112615']People really need to pirate $0.99 apps?[/quote]
This is what I thought. I don't have my bank account attached to my phone so I don't buy apps, but I don't pirate them either. Really, there are free alternatives out there that are just as good as the paid versions...

When will the FBI understand, that it isn't legal for them to seize domains of foreign sites that have nothing to do with the U.S?
They aren't the Internet/World owner and things that are illegal in the U.S, are legal in other countries...

Haha you make it sound like 25 is a lot. To Anonymous, there is no limit.

Really? Judging from how quiet Anonymous have been since then, I think it's Anonymous who learned their lesson instead.

Welcome to Neowin. You don't know anything about Anonymous I'm guessing.
