So, correct me if I'm wrong but, don't the publishers generally sell books (e-books included) to retailers at a specific wholesale price? If that's the case, why does this guy care what a particular retailer charges for the book? He's already gotten his cut and set the MSRP. If the retailer wants to sell the book for a different amount then that should be up to them.
Once, back when I was a Charter customer, my bank screwed up my automatic Charter payment. I found this out after I had an HTTP request redirect to a Charter website informing me that my bill had not been paid. Even with a text based browser, I still would have been redirected. All they have to do is redirect the next HTTP request after the Bittorrent transmission is detected to whatever page they wish. When you're supposed to be the man-in-the-middle, a man-in-the-middle attack is very easy.
You do realize which group is in charge of impeaching federally elected or appointed officials right? Just in case you didn't know, the House of Representatives has to vote to impeach the individual, then the Senate has a trial, if the Senate comes back with a two-thirds majority of guilty votes, then the individual is removed from office. Therefore, it is Constitutionally impossible to impeach the entirety of Congress since no one is going to vote to have themselves removed from office.
On another point, certain members of Congress did try to, within the framework of the confidentiality documents that they agreed to, inform the people of what was really happening. Senator Wyden comes to mind here. He said that we would be angry when we found out what was being done and it looks like he was right.
Wouldn't an ISP simply be able to refuse to provide service to anyone who doesn't choose to opt out? Make choosing to opt out of the filter one of the forms that one must sign when they acquire service. At least I'd hope that's possible.
Re: Yeah, because the US can't get to the servers elsewhere
If I remember correctly, MegaUpload's servers were in the United States. The problem was that Kim Dotcom wasn't in the US to be prosecuted and has a government/judiciary that, eventually, decided to stand up for its citizens against pressure from the US to extradite him.
Don't most federal judges sit for life? I don't see ten years being that bad when you compare it to that standard although, I'd prefer that FISC judges go through the same appointment/confirmation process that other federal court judges go through.
I want to support this site so, I browse it with my ad-blocker off. However, the auto-playing Wall Street Journal video ads with sound are not a good idea. Especially when there are two on the same page. I recently killed a rootkit that caused overlapping video ads to constantly play in a hidden window on a customers computer. For a second, I thought that I'd caught something >_
Well, my representative [Dan Kildee (D-MI)] voted yea so I'm happy and will be sending a supportive e-mail. It's too bad that Michigan's delegation split though. With both Amash, a Republican, and Conyers, a Democrat, both from Michigan and both sponsoring this amendment I would have thought that my states delegation would have been all over this one.
Re: Re: Well That Certainly Explains the "No Rooting" Stance
It's still an issue since there are a number of people who've had me root their phones for them since they don't understand how to do it but they do want to get rid of some of the otherwise irremovable(sp?) crap-ware on the thing. Since I've never asked for any money I'm pretty sure that I'm still fine doing it but, if they own the device, why should the government care what they have done to it?
Their constituents keep reelecting them so, unless they are found to have broken a law concerning their office, they can't be impeached. Add to that the fact that the House of Representatives would have to hold the vote impeaching any federally elected official and the Senate would have to actually try said individuals for their alleged crimes and you will find that anything short of providing Iran with American nuclear access codes probably won't end in removal from office as long as Republicans control one house and Democrats control the other.
The minor was above the age of consent but still a student of hers. That makes it potentially illegal depending on the state but not always if said teacher didn't have a direct position of authority over that student (i.e. didn't have the student in any classes). Long story short, it's complicated.
This is especially funny since I know that at least KickassTorrents actually doesn't ignore DMCA takedown notices. Just have the torrent files removed from the indexing site. I'll bet that 2 more will pop up in their place but that's more effective than going after Google who is, in this case, an indexer of indexers of pointers to infringing files.
The family reunion on my mothers side generally includes everyone descended from my maternal grandmothers, maternal grandmothers, mother. That's quite a few people once you add in spouses, significant others, and friends. I know it's regularly more than 100 people though.
I think you may have misunderstood the thing in question here. The argument isn't over whether a motel has the right to hand over your information to law enforcement agencies without requiring a warrant; the argument is over whether law enforcement agencies can require that motels hand over said information without a warrant. Regardless of the outcome of this case, a motel would still be allowed to give your information to law enforcement willingly if they wished to do so.
Why not just directly sell the (lossless compressed) FLAC files to the customers and skip the relatively expensive disc pressing part of the problem.
Although, I know the answer to this question. If you sell studio quality lossless audio, then people never have to re-buy for a new format. I wonder what percentage of the record industries revenue for the last three decades have come from people buying music they already owned in new formats?
