Companies and individuals should not be allowed to hold more than 999 mil $ in assets, including other companies.

that is a nice first step. the difficult part is to close the loopholes here such as individuals distributing their wealth to charities, other companies etc which they don’t own (financially) but has %100 exercise power over. I think individuals should also not be allowed to be even remotely affiliated to more than one organization that holds more than 999mil$.

Something like that, yes. I agree its only a first step but it should become a mantra for it to become reality, if you catch my drift.

I’d say even less tbh, though I’m not exactly well informed about finance and business other than that it gets more sketchy the more they hold

I can relate. But its like getting an addict off their favorite hard drug. The fewer companies we target with this, the easier we make it happen. This should already take care of the worst offenders than can put pressure on countries. Next, we bar them for participating in thinktanks and other „legal“ ways of market manipulation.

So Companies will establish even more shell companies to hold their excess assets. Nothing gained.

so lets keep everything like it is.

No thanks.

Breaking them up under diverse ownership makes it a lot harder to align them, which is the goal here.

No corporate law has ever been simple so a lot of nuance needs to still be added to this.

Since you have a german tld, I assume you know a bit of german law. We have the „aktiengesetz“ which links companies through management, ownership and family. This would work perfectly for something like this.

Of course a company like starbucks could still try and break into 105 companies which need to be owned by 105 individuals with 105 CEOs and 105 different offices… but I guarantee you its a lot harder to manage than now.

They could do that

Okay but seriously, what other substantial use-case does this have beyond imagining playing copyrighted games?

deleted by creator

Maybe homebrew but games preservation is specifically about copyrighted stuff, so emulators achieving that are good and needed.

So you have this thing called “head” that you can play copyrighted games with? We’ll need to confiscate that.

I’d be careful with that imagination of yours… If you know what’s good for you ಠ⁠_⁠ಠ

Playing the games I payed for on hardware that can actually run them. Or just whatever hardware I want.

Is this a case of !whoosh@lemmy.zip on @douz0a0bouz and bunch of upvoters part, or on mine?

I wouldn’t actually be surprised if this did happen. Nintendo can suck a dog asshole and die.

Lmao, I was talking about how I couldn’t stomach Nintendo yesterday in a lemmy gaming thread and had dozens of Nintendo fans trying to find every excuse to shit talk me personally for daring to question their corporate overlords.

I can’t stomach their garbage products anymore, and it blows me away how dedicated people are to the company.

Hey now, let’s not promote animal abuse. What have dogs done to you that you wanna torture them so?

Not Nintendo but I remember when Disney refused to allow 3 daycare centers to paint their characters on the wall so universal got to step in and let them use theirs

My questions is: what kind of person reports shit like this to Disney? How the fuck would their lawyers even be aware of something so stupid and pointless?

'merica luvs capitalism

Had me in the first half, not gonna lie

Had me in ca. 2010 when I first read this and it was a game boy

Me too! I thought it was gonna be all wholesome, but, late stage capitalism is a boring dystopia.

Even if it did end with the expected feel-good story, it would still be boring dystopia material.
