"I refuse to take part in the future"

"I'm a guy who doesn't see anything good having come from the Internet...(The Internet) created this notion that anyone can have whatever they want at any given time. It's as if the stores on Madison Avenue were open 24 hours a day. They feel entitled. They say, 'Give it to me now,' and if you don't give it to them for free, they'll steal it."

Sounds like a joke, right? Well, it isn't. These are the infamous words of the Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO, Michael Lynton. And the best, or worst, part is they were actually spoken in May 2009!

This retarded bastard could just as well be saying that "I don't see anything good coming in the future. Why improve anything that is sort of working today, and why should we be bothered looking for new business models anyway?". I guess it explains why Sony and the rest of the entertainment industry are refusing to embrace even today's technologies, not to mention the future, and are digging their graves by continuing to not give their customers what they really want, and suing them instead. From the Betamax to VHS to DVD to Blueray, it's still the same, hopelessly outdated way of distributing movies.

Makes me wonder who hires such incredible morons for these positions.
