So then who gets the rights if two famous people walk in (in the same frame)?
Neither or both. In other words, if there are legitimate publicity rights, then you would have to get permission from (or obscure the identity of) each of them before doing anything public with the video.
You assume the guilt of the accused in your argument
It's more of a hypothetical situation than an assumption: "Even if you are a truly worthless scumbag... a lawyer will defend you, stretching their mind to invent rationale for your heinous criminal actions." He's not saying anyone in particular is a worthless scumbag, or guilty of any crimes. He's saying in the case of a worthless scumbag guilty of heinous criminal actions, a lawyer will still be willing to take the job.
as for this lawyer, he needs to be held on similar charges as well. he is trying to aid and abet a person to get away with murder and is, therefore, in my opinion, not trying to just defend the officer but become an accomplice!
Prosecuting defense attorneys for vigorously defending their clients is a horrible, horrible idea.
Miller Beer tried a much less egregious version of this scam and.... lost.
"In 1987, defendants created, manufactured and arranged for the repeated broadcast of a 30-second commercial on prime-time television for Miller Beer featuring three FAT BOYS look-alikes performing in the distinctly FAT BOYS style described above (the "Commercial")."
You didn't already have that money, so they didn't steal from you, right? Wrong, they stole your efforts.
If they refuse to pay you for work you have already done, yes, they're essentially stealing money that they owe you. If they inform you that you will not be getting paid in the future, then obviously nothing has been stolen. It's possible that could be a breach of contract, but that isn't theft.
If the competing pizza parlor worked by somehow canning and making copies of your pizzas out of thin air (so that he didn't have to put his own effort into it) then it would be stealing.
I think I need to see your definition of "steal", because that doesn't sound like any definition I'm familiar with. You're saying if I invent (or buy) a Star Trek style replicator, buy one of your pizzas, and set up shop across the street selling replicated pizzas, that I'm stealing pizza from you? Or is it money I'm stealing? Either way, that just doesn't make any sense, because I'm not taking anything away from you that you own.
after the installation has been paid for, the energy companies are going to increase prices even higher than they would have, because, they will say, their profits have fallen because less energy is being used. the extra increase is to cover the 'non-use' of electricity from the grid.
Has this actually happened, or are you speculating?
