BTW, thanks to Andy for all the background information. In particular the stuff about the history of virtual reality software and the links to military applications is not something that gets talked about a great deal.

Furthermore, racial profiling is a reality, whether we like it or not. Debt collection agencies will target those debtors first that appear to be the easiest targets. There is nothing racist about acknowledging this fact.

Bottom line:

Waves = Capable products & atrocious management.

Don't know if anyone mentioned this previously in this thread, but I just noticed this:

http://www.imsta.org/imsta_notes.html

IMSTA sound like an organsiation I can respect. Non profit, non agressive. IMSTA represent over 80 different companies. Banpiracy appear still to exclusively represent Waves.

I must admit I'm surprised I had never heard of IMSTA before.

Many thanks for the link, and it's good to see that IMSTA - which genuinely represents a cross section of the industry rather than a morally bankrupt, aggressive, bunch of shysters -

"do not favor, nor would we ever participate in prosecution or any similarly aggressive methods."

It's fun to watch Waves execute one of the longest suicide notes in history though.

It looks like anyone genuinely concerned about this issue might be better off in the IMSTA camp. From some past professional experience of political lobbying etc, I know who I would rather listen to if I were a legislator.

I dunno, it seems this has mostly blown over. There's the usual Waves-hate of course, but I can see a huge amount of talk about banpiracy any more after the initial wave of outrage...

Well, what are they doing then? Do they still send their software Gestapo around?

Don't know about that. I was chatting about banpiracy with a mate of mine who works in retail and he says he hasn't sold a Waves plug-in for over a year. Their products come with so much baggage at the moment (anybody out there had fun with WUP?), I don't think a lot of potential customers can simply be arsed? I know I can't...
