There it is in black and white.

I'm not trying to bash them, nor am I making this up. Their loss of subscription will be punishment enough imo.

I've read that when it came out. Still lacks any honesty to it. This bit is a special gem:

The concerns people have about React World are understandable, and that people see a link between that and our past video takedowns, but those were mistakes from an earlier time. It makes perfect sense for people to distrust our motives here, but we are confident that our actions will speak louder than these words moving forward.

So, TL;DR: The concerns the internet has are understandable, but we still think you're a bunch of retards and didn't get what we meant. We will stop talking, and start doing.

Seems like they think they're right, but are saying what the internet wants to hear. But this might be just me, since I still don't trust their words.

The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

I don't trust them at all, maybe they won't even rescind the patents, at this point what would they have to lose aside from subscribers and respect.. Oh wait..

Ineed, funny enough once I read the letter all I understood was: "We tried to set up a system that would let us screw over people, you noticed before it took root, so we are sorry we didn't hide it better."

It's more like "we're sorry you all feel bad about us making money off you"

They're sorry because they got caught. That's all there is to it. Watch the actual apology video; they spend most of it patronizing viewers for not understanding them the first time and overall don't sound or act even remotely remorseful.

As I previously noted, this is a pretty open-and-shut case.

  • They tried a powerplay, albeit a really stupid one.
  • They got caught and busted because they weren't ready for such a play and handled it poorly.
  • The powerplay blew up in their faces and they scrambled to save face while still trying to save the play on the side.
  • The backlash was so massive, they stopped trying to continue the side play and put all efforts into damage control.

And this is where we're at now.

Honestly, had they been a little more patient and a little less ambitious, and planned things out a bit more cleverly, this powerplay could have been a resounding success. But they weren't, they didn't, and it wasn't.

I have no idea who the Fine Bros are, but hopefully they aren't related to the Venture Bros, or the Warner Bros, and their sister Dot.

This is exactly what happened with Microsoft's XBONE security attempts. Then it was leaked and they were up shit creek.
