"If you wanna save your band you must be litigatious."
There are diffrent ways to present things, and like his music ol' Gene lacks anything remotely artistic in this delivery.
Make no disillusions Gene this last comment will probably cost you more than the first.
[citation][nom]WhySoBluePandaBear[/nom]So you're going to destroy someones life and hope they get raped...all because they have a copy of your song, or because they did a DDoS attack on you?This is ridiculous...bands are making more money than ever, just because you can't constantly keep growing doesn't mean it's bad. So what if you're only making 10 mill a year, why does it always have to be a higher number every year? I'm sorry, but these people are greedy bastards.Oh and Kiss sucks anyways. They supposedly aren't happy with all the Guitar Hero deals they've signed and the money they've banked in from that. I would say 90% of that entire Guitar Hero fan base has at one point or actively downloads content illegally.[/citation]
Basically threatening someone with rape, that's what it boils down to.
i think KISS should expunge this di*ksplash before they suffer with him.
Gene: Your digging yourself a huge hole here lad, soon, nobody will like you and all you'll have is your money and the sight of people who think your a d*ck.
Simmons said the right way to deal with filesharing would have been to sue the pants off of every "fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material." Simmons also said that, in order to save their brands, people needed to be ruthless and stop at nothing to make sure their content is protected.
"Make sure your brand is protected," he said. "Make sure there are no incursions. Be litigious. Sue everybody. Take their homes, their cars. Don't let anybody cross that line."
Gene Simmons? Didn't he do sweating to theoldies or something? ;P
Face it Gene...you don't have brand recognition anymore. Your lame attempts at branding everyday objects with your 20+ year old band that never made it (well you did but that was a fluke since you screwed the rest of your band mates) is a FAIL at best.Why don't you just fade away like the rest of your hairband generation?
I dont know why this is always such a big deal. What has really been accomplished by knocking down a site for a few days? To me it just sends a message saying "we're only powerful enough to be a nuisance."
Get'Em Gene. Show those nerds how it is done. Get them to come out from behind their keyboards. This is awesome. There are more and more priacy issues going public and more and more website attack issues hitting the press. This is going to be great. Now governments are going to get involved and start regulating the internet because piracy got out of control. There are going to be Cyber Wars as a result. Bring on internet anarchy! Oh, and put the hackers and pirates in jail.
Poor Gene. These comments will likely make him more hated in the world than he already is. He is also proving his ignorance in the fact that studies have been done that file sharing networks actually increase legitimate sales of music.
NEVER mess with the Linux kids....EVER!!!! Hackers are a subdivision of those kids...and you DON'T want to make them made at ya! (Sony you silly monkeys). Gene, get a life. Your not as cool as you would hope.
