Should we fight RIAA? I think we shouldn't even acknowledge its existence.

Every zoomer knows where to get every type of content they want. Every zoomer knows where to get it for free. This is what I always strive for — to make walking over RIAA our culture, to walk over RIAA without even knowing RIAA exists. Zoomers really pay for digital shit only when they feel like it. If something is "taken down", zoomer still gets it in like thirty seconds, maybe two minutes maximum if the thing wasn't popular. This became the basic internet skill and oh how I like it.

For every problem they make, we invent a solution. We have the fundamental and unbreakable principle of the analog hole (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...) AND the smartest people on our side, they only have the greediest.

We don't have to take down RIAA and others. We don't have to fight — we already won.

    This post makes me feel old. "Yay digital piracy! Fight the power!" is the exact kind of shit we millennials were saying in the mid-2000s. Good to know things don't really change that much.

    @EmberQuill not exact. Piracy as an ideological act evolved into piracy as a no-brainer, piracy as a default.

    @kiki Shadowbanned? What makes you think that?

    I think the fact that youtube-dl was almost immediately uploaded to every conceivable git host within hours of the takedown proves that it's pretty hard to kill a popular open-source project. They didn't even take down the official website and the latest release is still available in binary form. They'll either remove the DRM-circumventing code to get back on GitHub, or move to one of the hundreds of other git hosts all over the world.
