This part stuck out to me:

Dongles are rarities in consumer technology products now, but industrial users are probably thrilled about this, as many go missing and are now impossible to obtain.

Oh man quilting bees are going to be such havens for piracy. (Wait, they already were. Thus, the software vendors require dongles for their programs. True story, I forget where I read it.)

He said Dong-les. Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh. Wrong thread, bunghole

"Professors, students and documentary filmmakers are now allowed, for “noncommercial” purposes, to break the copy protection measures on DVDs to be used in classroom or other not-for-profit environments. This doesn’t quite go so far as to grant you and me the right to copy a DVD so we can watch it in two rooms of the house, but it’s now only one step away."

This is kind of related (re: piracy anyway). UFC recently enacted a plan to file lawsuits against the IP addresses of those who watch the PPVs via one of the pirate sites (they name justin.tv, among others, so I don't think I'm saying anything not known), which seems a little archaic

All that take 'em to court mentality went on with Napster -which led to even more access sites for downloads - but also led to the $.99 download, $1.99 ringtones, streaming movies, etc - which led to hardware needed to play yer stuff anywhere, anytime. Who cares where you got it from, you need this iPhone to get it on!

Who suffers? Suckers that want to pay lawyers to fight it. I'm surprised Dana White hasn't embraced this more...there is a great way to profit from those who are going to steal your shit anyway

Obviously it's not going to be a $.99 download; just put ego aside and commit to making large money - decide (instead of being an asshole) to be a happening company that LIKES and WANTS your money more than that chickenshit lawyer you'd have to pay to defend your free right to do something illegal

Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

It's not even that the dongles go missing, it's that they eventually stop working, but it's not like a business is going to by a whole new machine just because the software portion doesn't work, even if it's decades old and finding a new dongle is half past impossible and - wait, I think I'm saying too much.

UFC already sells PPVs online - via their site and Yahoo and maybe some others. It's just that it's the same price as the non-HD ($50?), which they say is due to the deal with the satellite companies. At the price, it really doesn't work. I think the story of those steaming sites is people are willing to watching bad quality video if it's at a cheap enough price, and they're going to get keep looking for lower price alternatives if UFC isn't providing it.

We could probably have the same discussion re: comic books and how they've only been dragged in to the reality of 6-7 years ago in the last month, but maybe I'm drifiting this too far off topic.

Pathetic For god's sake, I don't even know where to start. The United Nations cannot even protect refugees from slaughter and devestation? This is how the United Nations wants to protect ethnic groups from genocide? And France wants the UN to run Iraq?
