    Question Compression VS Money

    I assume many here are into file compression for the greater good more than money. But up to what ratio as the poll shows.
    Also to the extent how far you are willing to go to screw another as well if someone hired you to benefit from the idea.
    Kind of like how Xerox got screwed over by Apple, or Apple and others got screwed by MS, or the original created of FB got screwed over, The McDonald brothers got screwed over by McDonald, Nikola Tesla screwed over by JP Morgan, Etc. like most big corporations. So what would make you different it seems.
    Think about it for a few days before you answer.

    Nikola Tesla worked for the Rothschilds with the understanding that they owned most of his work upon contingency for funding it. While Apple may have been screwed over by Microsoft surely, Xerox was not by either and had no patents nor expectations on what they made before Apple or Microsoft. Facebook was not stolen, but planned. It is the current generation of CIA project Lifelock which was immediately transitioned to "Facebook" in 2004. Only the initial look of the front end and a few basic functions were in question by the Winklevoss twins. The rest was and still partly is classified as Lifelock.

    It would seem people's understanding of events are rather skewed aka "mainstreamed" to not know this?

    As expected in the poll. 2 people would take 1 to 100 mill, while 2 say no comment which means they want to be 1 nice to not say or 2 dont know what they will do when it comes to it which usually means they will also choose the money. Also the fact that 212?... but lets say a fraction of that about 25 people also that saw this post had no comment to state the obvious truth. Silence speaks volumes.
    Does the poll have a right answer? What if you were on the other end and you has a multi million dollar idea what would you want the other person do choose if you rely on them to be any lawyer, any programmer, etc? You would probably want them to choose 0.
    Shouldn't one decide on the...
    1) golden rule of do to others what you want others to do to you? or maybe people prefer the other
    2) golden rule of whoever has the gold makes the rules. Which is what some of those examples were which can sure seem to buy people mentality as well in how they are viewed.
    Even if you know this and change your mind its just shows the mentality of most.
    Since if you are willing to screw over 1-2 people to benefit in your life which is rarely the same to be that law the other will also think that. And if everyone screws over the other then that is 7+ billion people will to screw you or have already one way or another. A downward spiral where the end result is everyone gets hurt equaly. kind of like communism everyone suffers equally.

    Freedom and responsibility go together, if you want freedom to do what you want without responsibility then more rules will be put on by force which means less freedom, so to help secure others of theirs freedom which costs them a bit of freedom. The more security you get the less freedom which is what a prison is. As one of the US founders Benjamin Franklin somewhat said to compromise freedom for more security you will get neither and deserve neither.
    It seems people can not handle truth or freedom. Give a child the freedom to do anything they will be a slave to their addictions. But for an adult to act the same seems to be as childish.
    Well that's that.

    That is not the point of the topic but an example of dishonestly which if you feel everyone is honest then o well. But to clarify on your points.
    1 Tesla worked with Westinghouse and was pressured by Morgan to be sued and decided to give up the patent despite Westinghouse/Tesla knew they can win in court but Morgan wanted to sue knowing it will cost them legal fees and take years to settle. Later on it was hard to get financial backers since his Biggest backed Astoria died on the Titanic owned by Morgan which did not go on the ship and has insurance. Maybe coincidence.
    2 Apple's Steve Jobs said good artists copy and great artists steal. Also blamed Gates for taking the UI from them. Apple would have been out of business without Gov support.
    3 MS sued for anti trust. Did you know gates was the fist person to make a computer virus, yet is pushing top stop viruses with is Organisation made after he got sued to help his image. As Gates said in public years ago that we need good vaccines to reduce the population. LOL
    4 Xerox it depends, they had their info free for development for improvement but did not get credit as they should which would be the honorable things, while others say their was a patent but no real database and so it took a long time to get one which was eventually accepted in 1991. Laws are in place due to people not being honorable.
    5 FB got sued and had to pay 100's of millions.
    You can look it all up. But to think that billion dollar companies do things honorably to get that wealth is naive. Their is a lot of info from admitting court record, admitted by the people that did it. Think what you will.
