Talk:Genres of non-free software
MAFIA for short
Do you know of any examples of this abbreviation used in other sources? Eighty5cacao 17:34, 25 April 2011 (MST)
|Technical note (WOT)|
WOT complains about the site below, though mainly (only?) because it links to the real RIAA and MPAA sites.
I anticipate no interference from more professional products such as McAfee SiteAdvisor (which I no longer use).
- Sorry, should have googled before posting. There exists a parody site called MAFIAA (note the two A's, patterned after (Recording Industry|Motion Picture) Association of America). Is this what you had in mind? Eighty5cacao 17:43, 25 April 2011 (MST)
- I am aware of MAFIAA.org, but I'm trying to head off the sort of smart-ass "but I'm not in America, so the argument doesn't apply to me" remarks that the pedants who inhabit Slashdot might put out. --Tepples 07:49, 26 April 2011 (MST)
Got directed here from your post . You might know this already, but there are many people like myself (and from what I've read, we're apparently growing) who don't care if people who currently make games or tax software can't make a living from it. For those who oppose IP on principal, arguing for the interests of "high-quality software", the YOTLD, the protections of the GPL, or other such justifications falls on deaf ears. I'm not trying to flame here, just saying that many people have a position on this which can't really be reconciled with yours. Correct me if I've mistaken your position. --unsigned (188.8.131.52)
Open source DRM
Despite people claiming otherwise, there is no reason DRM content cannot use open source players. See Project DReaM. It sucks that all the vendors have bought into this nonsense, and forced Firefox to still essentially use an Adobe plugin for DRM, even once we finally get rid of Flash. 184.108.40.206 15:42, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
