A MUST READ EXCERPT FROM STELA & then some- No is an OK word:

13 Jun

The concern legislators expresses is for consumers who have no voice here, with no  control over their bill. The customer gets hundreds of channels they don’t watch from a revenue model that has no liability for cable manager who makes the deal just passes it on to the consumer. Congresswoman Blackburn pointed out content must be compensated for as does the content creator deserve to be compensated.

This is the same same Copyright conversation being held down the hall and around the corner in the Judiciary Hearing Room- ownership of one’s IP- intellectual property. You see the thing that many ignore is the age old adage that ‘the more things change the more they stay the same’ a bit of cowboy logic the Texans are quick to uphold. But out of the box logic observes (1) maybe there is too much content being generated AND not enough viewers hence the Cable Companies are forcing consumers to take and pay for what our moms’ used to call ‘crap.’ You know JUST because someone has an idea does not mean it is something to act on, the tragic fallout of the Free internet causing overload of people, pocketbooks and just plain old time. Maybe it is time to invoke the “Cut The Crap” adage to set up steps to mitigate the Home Movies now being forced upon consumers by College Professors misguidance that companies must perform to please shareholders. No. Stakeholders count. Cables biggies are forgetting that LESS IS MORE. Some content on cable needs to stay ‘home movies’ rather than used to extort subscribers and nice nice little companies such as Bend.

Failure lies in communication of Cable lobbyists to put into words that the Internet is the new Cable. The laws are unable to keep up with the Flow Of Free Content on the Internet hence the forced bundling Congressman Barton shared he is stuck with here and back home in Texas- in order to get phone, computer packages he is subject to buying the Triple Play Package although the show he wants to watch is his baseball back home.

Congress might consider a great new word, to me at least, NO. It is OK to say no. Saying YES buys more problems than friends both in the worlds of the Camel and the Tent joke and in the world of Constituents. No is OK to say…..

Congress might also dive deeper on top of Disney who admitted to Congress they are playing both good cop and bad cop- charging beaucoup bucks for forced cable or else ‘blackout’ and dipping into the virginal internet pond of Free Content, with Hulu, something the smaller companies may not have the resources to do.

Ahh. NOW I know why Disney was plunked at the witness table between the two babes with brains.

Got to love karma….
