@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

I just remembered that the Marvel UK Transformers comic printed the full address of kids wanting to trade with other fans. Surely that wouldn't be allowed today?

Of course in the wake of net-wide outcry against SOPA and PIPA, a website gets shut down and its head personnel arrested.

Look, the more you protest, the harder the pathocrats will clamp down to hold on to power. Just wait patiently and the system will collapse under its own incompetence, then you can build a new one from the ground up.

I'd feel sorry for them if Kim Dotcom hadn't already proved himself to be a massive tool. The guy hacked into people's credit card accounts and sold their credit card info to the highest bidder, for hug's sake.

Yeah, I should be clear: The extent to which I am bothered by this is only as far as it inconveniences me due to the vast amount of media I now do not have access to, and probably won't for some time. I can't even really feel sorry about most of the people who have been/are being arrested in connection. Maybe that graphic designer guy. He was just unfortunate enough to have done work for the wrong outfit. But the people who actually operated the site knew exactly what they were doing and the risks they took in the process.

I kinda feel bad for megaupload, but even before SOPA and PIPA were even conceived, they were breaking the law. I will also admit that at the least the RIAA and MPAA had it coming. Probably the DoJ too, I dunno maybe.

True enough. I need to pay for a VPN service to reliably access streaming content from Hulu, the BBC and others; but I consider that worth it.

In this case, I think everyone had it coming. MegaUpload was infringing left, right and centre; but the MPAA and RIAA are bloated, greedy corporate lobby groups. Their efforts will succeed only in diminishing those industries they represent, and I'm continually shocked that they either don't know it, or know it and keep on pushing for the anti-consumer laws and regulations just for the hell of it (or to maintain face, or some other equally stupid reasoning). I'm not going to shed any tears over what Anonymous did to their sites (nor the DoJ, which I also have little regard for in these cases).

I'll reserve my sympathy for the actual artists whose work was infringed rather than corrupt and/or misguided entities that should all be dissolved.
