Legal Online Content

This phrase bothers me.

I’ve been traveling a lot over the summer and also the past couple weeks, so I haven’t had much chance to get online and post. But today I saw this phrase in the newspaper (again), and it stuck out as such an obvious piece of propaganda that I thought I should post a remark about just how absurd and ridiculous it is.

There is no such thing as “online content” — content resides on storage devices, it can be read by computers, shared by servers, etc. … but there simply is no such thing as online content. I imagine some idiot thought up the phrase while he was floating on cloud nine.

Even worse than that, the stupidity of “online content” is actually trumped by the completely vacuous “legal online content“. Legal according to which laws?!? The buffoon who came up with this zinger must get paid a lot of dough, and I bet 9 out of 10 consumers will swallow all of it without batting an eyelash.
