  1. John is a sweet man; I'm sure he loves to spread the music love and expand the audio world in sharing with all the audio/music lovers in the global community. Libraries are where all the teachers and students learn more about everything in the world. Thank you for putting the dots on the "i"s. There is a balance between living and working for a living; the laws we make are the laws affecting that balance of all freedoms. Every country is different, every person has his/her view of the laws governing the lands. Each opinion counts, each law should reflect peace and harmony in the democracy we live in. It's not the bikers or the army who rule like the Lords, it's the people who they serve. The graphs who they serve. In the halls of Vienna the musicians play ...
  2. An extremely small sector of it ... digital audio music server/computer/office/home/private/public world. ...With style. Everything else is secondary, for another world, for an internal affair. Only the occasional related economic, geographic and bio-chemistry (DNA) can enter periodically; that's part of of the overall style created by this community...its writers, reviewers, expert contributors, experienced parties and interested culture. The forum is not a cult, it's a public gathering of passionate stylistic digits audiophiliacs. So yes it is a supremely miniscule social media strictly concentrated in one of the smallest sector of our planet...the digital audio transmission. In my own rough estimation it's about 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of the global full spectrum of things contributing to the good health of our humanity and our planet. Still, it's important because music matters.
  3. "In the epic war over Silicon Valley's intellectual property, Bill Gates was on the side of licensing copyright and robust protections for intellectual property. He wasn't on the side of the hackers, and he didn't want information to be free". Franklin Foer _____ "The problem with copyright enforcement is that when the parameters aren't incredibly well defined, it means big corporations, who have deeper pockets and better lawyers, can bully people". Shepard Fairey
  4. "The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. I see absolutely no point in pretending that it's not going to happen. I'm fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years". David Bowie _____ "There is no sense in owning the copyright unless you are going to use it. I don't think anyone wants to hold all of this stuff in a vault and not let anybody have it. It's only worth something once it's popular". Hilary RosenRead more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/copyright
  5. "Things don't just happen in this world of arising and passing away. We don't live in some kind of crazy, accidental universe. Things happen according to certain laws, laws of nature. Laws such as the law of karma, which teaches us that as a certain seed gets planted, so will that fruit be". Sharon Salzberg
  6. "In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous". Tacitus
  7. There was an article not too long ago, and one of the member's here also has read it. That was dead on appropriately tropic. It was mentioned from various medias of the Internet café. But here again that one from that member who has already posted that link ... Mr. mansr • https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/03/06/hipsters_all_look_the_same_fact/ P.S. Sorry for the typos, it's my Irish blood.
  8. Bob is one of my favorite audio gurus. When the first Meridian CD player was created I was there listening to it with mesmerizing awe. Some of his digital analyses, mathematical constructions are the basis of today's my own philosophy. But times fly and new mathematical constructions are offered. It's a constant moving world with a solid ground moving with it. If the majority is not swinging in harmony to the rhythm time for a better change. Yes, I take the AES papers seriously; it's the scientific base of audio analyses and theories and discoveries and measures and mathematical constructions. It's almost like a bible, in constant renouvellement. ...The art of applying the masterings.
  9. Profit? Who's profiting here if the source was taken somewhere else in the first place as explained already. I think this is an obsession in this audio business; the control. I don't see that as the general trend. So it's not worth it, and better get back to our normal routine...MQA flavor or vapor.
  10. Jud, it's an audio forum, 365 days a year. Tell John Atkinson about it, and tell him to relax too. He's the guy jumping backwards on this beautiful lovely day. Tell him that it's not the end of the world and nobody, no animal were hurt during the filming.
  11. It's not the name, it's the presentation to a scientific audio audience.
  12. If you from Stereophile wants to be an exclusive club of snobs, a cult of audio degenerates, living in a world of paranoia, deception and fear of sharing their graphs, their measurements, their articles; hire the audio police and patrol the cyber space in the pursuit of lawbreakers, of corruption, of copiers, of thieves, and stop living a free life by picking another hobby more helpful for the planet...climate change, children education, clean water for everyone, and 5G serious studies on mental and physical health. Tell your grand children too, that they cannot share Stereophile graphs and it's better to plant trees instead, for the shape, for the brain, for the soul. Perhaps we shall never read Stereophile ever anymore.
  13. We are here to enjoy life, music, audio, learn about being better @ everything, share our knowledge to get closer to peace, look @ the sky in its vast space, search for simplicity, measure the truth in its just balance, for the sake of living happier on our planet, all the people, without borders without colors and without languages. ...With one universal transmission...the power of musical true love and reality. ...Including MQA and all the measuring graphs in the world from the universal scientific audio book of the blessing heavens. ...Among all the clouds and the fires and tornadoes and earthquakes of the universe.
  14. Mr. John Atkinson, I have a lot of respect for you in the last fifty years. Your emotional stance with your graph, copyright, doesn't diminish that respect. But seriously Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Have a green pint and enjoy relaxing listening to traditional Irish music. Share the love, the music, the audio discoveries during your life's journey among the flowers singing in the spring.
