(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

The media industry is acting like the internet is the problem. BWAHAHAHA. Seriously, what happened with vhs? Cassette? CD? DVD? Don’t need the internet to pirate.
VHS, record right off the tv or borrow a movie from a friend.
Cassette meets radio.
CD meet computer with burning software. (borrow musician’s hard work)
DVD meet computer with burning software. (borrow movie)
No internets or tubes needed to do the above.
See what I did there? Piracy doesn’t end with censoring the internet. It ends when the archaic format for distribution evolves to meet the consumer(The people you are trying to screw over.)
Sure, censor the net and you have all your profits back…(sarcasm) Good job big media!

Jimnay whoever you are,
your a brilliant person. as he states clearly, its not about what the internet does or doesnt do,.. people will still find ways to pirate stuff. as for me i find means of finding ways either getting it for free or finding a alternative, for example… microsoft office, its pricy…. comparison? Openoffice.. same exact thing. just not so glamourous.. expensive high detailed 3d image maker…. close to $1000 right? comparison… blender3d…. warcraft 3…. comparison.. = glest!!!

Are you serious? Have you just NOT seen the 5 comments prior to yours which were made by self-proclaimed creators (network admins notwithstanding) who oppose this bill? I am an unknown (save by friends and family) piano/orchestra composer, I use Cubase 4 (purchased in full for 800$) and a rinkydink piano to create music. I have built over 30 original works. All of which aren’t bad, just not industry standard materials.
I oppose SOPA. Don’t you get it? My opposition (and that of many on this Board) has nothing to do with copyrights! Cut the hand off of the thief! It has to do with balance of power! This nation’s Court system is based and built upon the “tried and true” approach of ‘so-and-so vs. Nebraska 19XX’. We as a country use cases tried earlier to strengthen our interpretations of “conduct”. If this bill passes, there will be hundreds or thousands of court cases which will be nominated the precedents for future cases. New ideas and interpretations of “conduct” will be open for debate, with the courts (remember the lady that got off scott free for killing her kids) and presidential/congressional contributors set as the interpreters.
THAT is the problem, and THAT is exactly what you and the rumored thousands like you don’t quite understand. You just get swept away by the idea of a one-hit-KO on piracy, but its just not that simple.
Instead of spending tens of millions of dollars trying to shortcut the internet, why not invest a few million in new forms of digital medium? or better copy-wright enforcement programs? It can be done, but no one does.
Think about it.

Numerous studies have shown that piracy does not have a negative impact on sales.

Here’s one:

The value of an artist is not in the works they create, but in their ability to generate said works. The consumer’s dollar is an investment in your next project. If you’re worried about someone stealing your ideas, keep them to yourself.

SOPA is an extreme and irresponsible response to what has been shown to be a minor problem.

I have a relative who is a songwriter, and who is now going to abandon this profession. I know writers who have abandoned the idea of ever finishing that Great American Novel. What kind of world are we advocating when we don’t support our artists, our writers, our philosophers? Google and the other search engines are big bullies who are whining about creating methods that would protect piracy. It’s possible to do, but they would rather jump up and down and stomp their feet like toddlers. Sorry — doesn’t cut it with me. It’s time to protect our creative folks — not the big companies — the actual creators of the material: the songs, the books, the screen plays.
