    Sample Piracy Problem Solved

    Breitbart has a news report about Dogs Being Used to Tackle Music Piracy
    "Lucky and Flo, Malaysia's latest weapons in tackling rampant music and movie piracy, started work at the country's biggest international airport Tuesday, sniffing out shipments for fake optical discs.

    The two black Labradors are on loan for a month from the Motion Picture Association of America, which says its members _ including top Hollywood studios Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Universal _ lost $1.2 billion to Asia-Pacific movie pirates in 2006.

    "It is the first time dogs have been used by authorities anywhere around the world to detect contraband discs, said Mike Ellis, regional director for the MPAA.It took around nine months and $17,000 to train the dogs to detect polycarbonates, chemicals used in the disc manufacturing process, he added.
    Now why didn't I think of this great deterent to piracy? - training dogs to sniff out pirated copies of GPO!

    lol?

    hehe...

    Thank god dogs don't surf the net (yet!)...

    Indeed actually I know from friends in China that the DVDs come off, before the movies in the theaters, so in the theaters actually you get to buy, if you want the movie, officially, just in case you didn't get it weeks ago from your favourite pirate...

    Perhaps dogs could also be trained to HEAR the differences in various Sound libraries? I know some of my productions cause all the neighbourhood hounds to howl ...

    More confirmation of what I've lately suspected:

    Music is going to the dogs.

    Now, that is an interesting idea for a new copyright protection scheme. If a sample library is not properly authorized, it emits a sound, that makes all dogs within hearing distance - and dogs have very sharp ears - howl. Should be efficient in battling piracy.

    Well it's OK to tell you but don't tell him, he doesn't know. Yes, it's you. You didn't hear that from me.
