Intellectual Property should not be monopolized

Mikeee
thejudgeisgod

Intellectual Property such as patents and copyrights should not have a monopoly over their potential competitors. Just because someone made the discovery first, or has the money to buy the rights of the technology, they should not be given an unfair advantage of the market. Companies such as Macintosh have patents on the "tablet", which makes it harder for other developers to create similar products without being sued for "stealing" the idea of that type of product. Just because Apple was th...

CFLs are superior to Incandescent light bulbs

Ore_Ele
ReptiDeath

Pro (that's me) has the burden to show that CFLs are better, while Con (that would be my opponent) has the burden to show that Incandescent are better for your standard american family household. By "superior" and "better" I mean by judging the whole picture, not just in a single category. As such we will both want to highlight our strengths and down play our weaknesses. Some common ways things are valued are, cost, safety, efficiency, ease, etc. We can of course use anything that helps our c...

Consoles are Better than PC's for the purpose of gaming

Wislocki
Kiko700

I personally believe that PC gaming is still a better option for those who can afford it rather than gaming on next generation consoles such as the Xbox 1 or the PlayStation 4. I would not like to include the Steam box in this debate as it is somewhat of a hybrid. I believe this because PC's are able to be upgraded or have parts exchanged and replaced while traditional consoles, when broken, would have to be sent back to the manufacturer, taking on average 1-2 weeks to return in a working co...

Facebook is just a phase that will lose popularity

Nitro123
alex0828

Everybody agrees that Facebook is the epitome of "modern" and is currently at its heyday. However, Facebook is just a phase and will eventually be forgotten and replaced. Facebook.com released that "50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day" on its Statistics page. Only half of Facebook account holders log on per day. It will not be soon before "the next big thing" releases and replaces Facebook. I challenge my opponent to assume the Con position and look forward to a stirr...

"Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" is more Educational than any Video Game Advertised to be Educational

Harman
Albatross

"Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" or "SA" as I will now refer to it as, will contain more information beneficial to a person ages 6-16 than any other game marketed as, labeled as, or designed to be educational. While many educational games teach children common themes already being taught in public schools, such as math and reading, SA shows children skills that will be used in everyday life, regardless of their academic success. I will list the lessons SA teaches below. Also, the game's protagoni...

Media Violence

obeyalana
Visesiya

I'm for media violence because media violence is kinda what people need to let them know about the real world. Without media violence the media is just sweet and innocent and that doesn't really explain the real world. Media violence is real and tells the real truth about the world and the people in it. Though some media violence is put off as bad,some are good. The media violence puts people in check and tells them what they're doing wrong in a harsh way that way they will never do it again. So...

Cyber communication is progressive not problematic

Pollysholly
Hurstman

Cyber communication is progressive not problematic. Alicia Kozakiewicz was just a normal 13 year old. She went to school, had a big family, and was alittle shy. She just started having a FACE BOOK. She met a girl named Tyra. They both exchanged school pictures. Tyra was a red haired 13 year old living in Virginia. Alicia talked to Tyra about common problems and how to solve them. She spent most of her time with her parents and didn't have a lot of friends. She was smart enough to make the hon...
