Pakistani Activists Smell A Mole In Governments Proposed YouTube Filtering Plan ... -- After ignoring repeated requests to appear in a court case challenging the Pakistan governments year-long YouTube blackout , the countrys elusive IT minister is expected to appear at a hearing later this month to outline plans to drop the blanket ban and instead selectively restrict blasphemous and offensive material on the video-sharing site.

Netflix Uses Pirate Sites to Determine What Shows to Buy | TorrentFreak -- This week Netflix rolled out its service in the Netherlands and the companys Vice President of Content Acquisition, Kelly Merryman, says that their offering is partly based on what shows do well on BitTorrent networks and other pirate sites. However, this is not exclusively a bad thing, as it also creates demand for the content Netflix is offering. Netflix has to make deals with content owners in order to be allowed to stream their content. Not only that, some content owners have already licensed out the content to others in certain countries with exclusivity, leaving Netflix to negotiate with hundreds upon hundreds of different people in hundreds of different countries to get access to even a small library in other countries. Basically what i wish for, is to get rid of the licensing laws by allowing streaming services like netflix to liberate the dinosaur markets.. if you make Netflix Available in my country i will stop downloading my movies and tv shows! Netflix would be great if my countries library wasnt gutted for the sake of greedy studios pushing their obsolete DVDs
