Digital Copyright

A patent has been filed for a new technology that will allow you to put a digital "watermark"  on any digital media that you put out there. you will be alerted when someone publishes your "stuff" elsewhere.

Now that some sites are sharing profits with posters, I can really see this catch on.

"violent video games" and our "violent youth"

I was waiting for the videogame community to start it's backlash against the "violent" label it has been given.   This will probably be one of many articles that begin to push back against the  common assertion that videogames are destroying our childrens' futures'.  I am waiting for educators to figure out that there are reasons why kids like these games more than eating. By the way... how come football and other sports are not blamed for our "violent" youth that are not really violent.
