Thanks for the reply. I know I know.. regarding the 4% using ipad and iphones but unfortunately as it relates to my customers (consumer electronics) video and audio products the manufacturers all built interfaces for the iphone and ipad. They double as remote controls. I come from the city that makes blackberries and I tried to tell my customers who work there to try and get more consumer oriented. My playbook is more powerful than the Apple products and they dont heat up as an Apple or Android product does. I have android phone and it gets hot and starts to just shut down. If it wasnt for the linkage with my manufacturers that adapted the Apple I could care less about that 4%. Personally I like flash and found it fairly intuitive but I don’t have the updates that had fixes in them and with zero support I am thinking that I would be better off just starting from scratch. Thanks for your response. In the ipad 3 it will have flash enabled. and also it will be enabled on the iphone as well.

I think you are misunderstanding adobe’s statement about supporting IOS devices with Flash media server, this does not mean that it will have a universal flash player for IOS devices.

Lets not overlook that a new legislation was introduced the same day as the protests that will serve the same purpose these were supposed to. I have not taken the time to read the legislation yet and draw any conclusions(Its called the OPEN act for those who have not heard of it).

I do believe that our government has alot more pressing matters then bailing out yet another industry that will cost the tax payers millions if not billions.

hope envato will not be in those 9999 remaining ;)

because this is actually the danger here. I don’t care about megaupload but once the roller gets down the hill you may never know who will be hit by the wave including innocent websites

This is exactly it. One only needs to take a look at how the RICO act and all derivatives since have been used to understand how this will end. A law that basically strips a defendant of his/her rights and undermines his/her ability to mount a defense before they receive their first day in court. A law meant curtail the US Mafia, but has since been used against everyone.

And with PIPA /SOPA, the powers will be in the hands of those in the Administration. A department whose head will be appointed by the current President leaving those laws to be handled at the whim of and direction of the presidents political beliefs.

Just to add, since it has not been mentioned, I think it is far from a coincidence that this happened the day AFTER the protests. And was almost immediately followed by the RIAA using it as a tool to push for SOPA /PIPA.

||+520739|DarkNurbs said-|| Can someone please make one thing clear to me about SOPA ? If it’s turned into law, which types of websites will remain and which will be banned?

It is not about a certain ‘type’ of site. To put it simply, an organization notifies the government it believes a site is heavily involved in piracy and the government will take action against that site. No need to prove it is, no notice to the site owners to give them a chance to defend themselves. Actions will be taken, and then the site owners will have to prove themselves innocent.

To anyone who doubts the ‘legal’ uses of such file sharing sites need to step out of the cubicle and away from the tech world where everyone has their own hosting.

While I was in college everyone used file sharing sites for turning in assignments. Our professors would have us E-mail the links to them.

I ran a site of 70k+ young musicians from all over the world who used file sharing sites to collaborate on music together. I actually created a plugin to our system to allow our users to upload to a certain file sharing site directly from our site in an effort to make it easier for our users to collaborate.

There are real world ‘legal’ uses for file sharing sites(of which i barely touched on), to doubt that seems pretty insane to me, or maybe just shortsighted and selfish.

And it seems hard to keep this argument from being political. It is this same short sighted ‘protect my work at the cost of everyone else, i don’t care who gets hurt’ attitude that is at the base of the legislation being pushed through the US congress right now.

If I had any domains hosted with them I would transfer in a second.

As it stands now, the 70k+ domains getting transferred is not going to make a huge impact on a company that has 30million+ domains hosted with it. I hope the movement grows though.

I like the idea of my products being used in others work. I got a sense of pride when others would contact me about issues and i seen the different ways my items were used to enhance something and add value. I dont like my product just being repackaged and sold.

So is this how it’s going to work from now on? Is envato so scared of license issues that the comminity is left to try and police itself?

So VF has to send Envato a DMCA takedown notice in order for them to do anything. This should never be allowed period. This is insane to me that Envato would even allow such shotty business practices within the marketplace and make the authors jump through loops all the while the offending author is still making money and potentially negatively effecting another authors reputation.

This basically means that unless the previous author he did this to notices or someone tells that author then this guy will continue to make money off his script as well. And Envato could not care less.
