|They created the perfect storm|
so we all know google, apple, microsoftie and adobe decided flash must die. and quickly found ways to block or disable the addon from their new browser releases. then pushed all web developers to update the HTML script to proprietary googletml requiring all webbrowsers to update to see anything other than a blank page. Naturally companies updated as did all of the lefties who love google and hate flash for it's freedom of expression for the unwashed masses.
We've all been grumbling about it and looking for ways to circumvent this disaster. But this topic is not about that.
This topic observes that because of this action, the perfect storm was created making Flash swfs potentially Super Powered to violate Intellectual property rights!
you know how only a few years ago when flash was in all browsers if someone made an obvious zelda ripoff nintendo's lawyers would swarm it with C&Ds? yeah, now I'd be surprised if nintendo's lawyers can even see the content of an Swf file! especially if the file were coded in Actionscript# to check for a browser name and if it's the projector and not a browser just display a message that it's only able to be played in browsers.
it goes like this now because of the flash ban:
you make a IP violating product> a butthurt company tries to open the file to find out if you are in fact violating them> "this game is only able to be played in a web brwoser"> open it in a new webbrowser> "Adobe flash has been discontinued."> can't sue cause can't know the contents.
if anything not only does it allow more freedom in flash now, but also eventually even companies are going to demand that some sort fo flash support be given to modern browsers so they can protect their copyrights/trademarks.
