Ransomwear On The Rise: PayPal's Mistake





I DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN PAID REVIEWS OR PROMOTIONS. IF YOU HAVE BEEN APPROACHED BY SOMEONE ON TELEGRAM CLAIMING TO BE A PART OF THE CRYPTO TIPS TEAM, THEY ARE SCAMMERS!

    "Patent law is proof of greed"
    Spot on! "Patent law" and "Intellectual property" are pc names for theft and greed and ignorance and disrespect to others and future generations to come..In the future there shall be no patents .They hinder progress and creativity.

    Personally I've spent a lot of $ through Pay Pal and over the years , I've stopped, There protection policies have nothing to do with the customer, those are ALL put in place to protect PayPal profits and 0% to help clients from my experience. Service works until something goes wrong, they don't seem to be there, like a bad insurance company lol

    wow … two videos in a row where I feel the need to provide a counterpoint. I totally agree that Paypal handled this situation and solution badly, but to categorize patents as representing dirty greed is going to the extreme. If you write a song or a book should you give it away? … if you find an elegant solution to an engineering problem or write a particularly useful bit of code, is that it? … just hand it out to anyone to use and go back to your day job of waiting tables?

    The ability to monetize creativity and new ideas is a huge driving force in encouraging that creativity and in addition, helping creative people free themselves from the daily grind of earning a living (in work not related to their talents) is vital in the progress of every field where creativity is an ingredient. It is definitely galling to see huge companies insisting on patenting every idea one of their employees has (don't get me started on patenting genes), but they are not the only ones benefiting from a system put in place to protect the creators in our societies. I applaud people who selflessly post for the world work they think will change things for the better, and we should all encourage that behavior, from bands who post new songs as free downloads, to developers who upload their code to GitHub for anyone to view/change/use …. but we can't vilify those artists who copywrite their music in hopes of being able to sell it and write songs full time, or developers who are working nights on coding a coin with a new, better consensus protocol who use a private repository because they don't want to just hand it to Binance to fold into their behemoth coin.

    Central banks and finance laws were created to protect people, and of course crypto is a system which is trying to make those central banks and finance laws unnecessary … which is EXACTLY what is needed because laws can be exploited … centralized systems can be influenced. In the same way patents were created to protect people, and, in the same way, there probably needs to be a system that can make them irrelevant as well, but until that happens the protections, however inadequate or exploitable need to be there.
