How is Internet Piracy different than thieft?
If Im caught stealing a CD from the store, odds are I will recieve a minimal fine or even simply pay for the CD. Internet piracy carries a penalty of thousands of dollars per song downloaded, which is obviously more signifigant than stealing a hard copy.
Why the huge difference in penalties?
It used to be that i could buy a book and loan it to you and nobody gave a dam … Now in effect , they want to charge you for every person u let read the book as well as charge you each time YOU read it … Imo they just need to rethink the whole marketing strategy because their way of thinking about it and labeling 80% of the population criminals and pirates is archaic .. They need to move into the 21st century with the rest of us …
What is a good masters for a marketing undergrad?
I’m a recent graduate who has a B.S. in marketing from a state university and I’m considering heading back to school. I have a possible job that may or may not come through (due to sequestration) and I’m assessing my options. I was wondering what would be a good field of study (aside from an MBA, or M.S. in marketing) that would work for me considering my bachelors. I was thinking statistics…any other suggestions?
For the record, I did well as an undergrad: graduated with honors and highest distinction.
Totally screwed up my title, but you get what I was trying to say.
Additionally, I was thinking of possibly doing rotc in grad school, if possible, and trying to get into the army as an officer (I’m also considering OCS…but it’s all up in the air).
If you’re interested in a job in the marketing field, of course an MBA with a focus in marketing is the most obvious pick, and it’s a good choice according to research (see the link to MarketingHire.com , a job board that specializes in marketing and features articles with professional advice and trends). But marketing is undergoing a lot of change right now and big data is increasingly important as marketing professionals have more and more data input from things like internet marketing, interactive advertising, research, CRM, etc. Consequently, a masters that relates to data can be very valuable if you’re pursuing a career in marketing, as would an MBA in strategy. The marketing roles with the greatest amount of new hiring for 2013 tend to be mobile marketing, social media and data related, and its certain that big data is going to play an increasingly important role for all marketers in the future. IDC had a great study and presentation on how big data is transforming marketing, which considering your question, I think you’ll find worth reading. I’ve linked to it below.

What is the first thing internet marketing newbies do inorder to make money online ?
I was once a newbie and practically had no idea what to do when all the gurus around me were making tons of money. I said to myself, I must explore real the internet more intensively and help all the fresh, green & vulnerable newbies just like myself.
Spend 2 or 3 months understanding online biz. Find the answer why only 5% internet marketer make serious money. Find out whether these 5% who makes money might has some contribution to the 95% that failed. I have an advise for you. Now trust has become so much important to make money online. If you trust the wrong people they will make money out of you but you will still not making money. I say this because i explore to many blogs and see what people are saying to some of the gurus about their problems in making money online. It is really sad to hear them said this and that. So if you consider to make money online seriously don’t ever spend money to buy anything before reading the vast free resources. Study those resources first. Good luck.
What is the best source for webmaster education and search engine optimization education that is affordable?
I have a new website at
Check it out! I have many new home decor and office decor products, as well as great gift ideas for every special occasion….just need ideas as to how to market this without it costing an arm and a leg….am working on a limited budget. The idea is to MAKE money with it, NOT SPEND every dime I have just to get it marketed and ranked on the search engines. If anyone out there has resources for excellent internet marketing, that is reputable, NOT SCAMS, and is easy to understand for the beginner, let me know! I know amazon.com has several books you can get, such as “search engine optimization for dummies”, or “keywords for dummies”…may have to go with that for now, to save on my expenses…already put TOO much into this project to give up on it….getting several hits a day to the site, but still no significant sales….any help I can get out there would be greatly appreciated. debs3
You can do it for free no problem but it will require a little time on your part.
First you need to get two books from the library:
Designing with Web Standards http://www.zeldman.com/dwws/
Don’t make me think http://www.sensible.com/buythebook.html
Reading and understanding these two books alone will put you ahead of 99.9% of webdesigners.
Then you need to read a free, reliable and up to date SEO tutorial. There are only two of these on the web that are considered worth reading.
That’s it! Read, learn and implement.

What is Anonymous and Scientology mean and what is the conflict all about?
I’ve heard about this Anonymous and Scientology conflict but, what do those two words mean? And, what is the problem about?
Anonymous is a computer group that oppose the cult of $cientology with demonstrations at their “orgs” (they like retarded tech and abbr. Speak) they were quite aggressive with website hacking and other malicious acts like sending huge faxes to them and so on, but i think they have stopped all that malicious stuff now. Many will wear the masks of “V for Vendetta” – guy fawkes to protect their identities when they attend demos as $cientology members have been known to play dirty tricks of their own.
$cientology are a lunatic fringe cult based around the works of scence FICTION writer L Ron hubbard, who was quoted as saying the “quickest way to make money is to start your own religion” – you do the maths on those two facts!!! They charge exhorbitant fees to progress through their pointless levels and pose as a religion in order to evade tax. They have an interestingly colourful history of antics, lawsuits and even had the founders wife thrown in jail – its worth reading about. Type “operation snow white” “operation clambake” into google.
They also believe in an evil galactic overlord who sent billions (they appear to like the billions in their cult, everything is billions) of people to earth to be blown up by hyrdrogen bombs and it is the spirits of these people that afflict human condition today. And no, i am not making this sh-it up. They only get this story when they have reached a certain level. Searc “Xenu”. This story can be heard in hubbards own words as well, so it can be backed up – it is on youtube.
Some people will believe anything they are told, sigh……
How are the anonymous group going to shut down facebook on Nov 5th ?
Does it need thousands of people around the World to participate or is it a single hacker ?
Does anyone know the website for the anonymous group ?
They’d probably use a DDOS attack if they were targeting Failbook. A single hacker could do it if they were in control of a large botnet, but most likely A will use lots of affiliates to participate in their plans.
According to this link, they’re going to hit Fox news, a far more deserving target. Http://www.digitaltrends.com/web/anonymous-threatens-to-destroy-fox-news-on-guy-fawkes-day/
