Wow did we just get spammed lol.... I just got this in an email...
There's been a conspicuous absence of cable news coverage of the pending Internet censorship bills. (Likely a function of the media conglomerates' general support for the legislation.)
Tonight Keith Olbermann's going to break the silence by hosting Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) to talk about his expected filibuster of the the PROTECT IP Act.
He's expected to be on at about 8:45 Eastern Time, on Current TV. Show starts on the hour and re-run a few times as well. Loads of streams floating around for Current TV if you provider hates al gore or the environment lol..
No one gives a shit about the completely contrived show that is shark tank. You got anything else? In the meantime, how do we reconcile your ignorance? Its nice to see you clowns have techdirt on speed dial though.
RIAA hates fair use, FACT! They have been bitching about it for years.
Sort of ironic that I compared the MPAA to Righthaven last night on the not so Creative America facebook page. Just better funded lol...
Tip of the hat to Mike for chiming in as well. Very concise post about Korea.
It comes as no surprise to me that they have zero facts or metrics to back up their position and have now resorted to pleading with their base to help support their futile cause. And I quote....
"Creative America has over 11,300 Facebook fans, yet the recent debate on our wall has been dominated by a handful of fans who nonetheless oppose the legislation we support. This legislation will protect creative content and jobs in the entertainment industry. This is an important conversation worth having – so, if you think protecting creative content matters – start responding to those who disagree. Fight back by continuing a civil discourse. And please, everyone, we don't need endless loops of discussion on the same points, repetitive arguments, or impugning of wisdom, knowledge, motive or perspicacity."
Unfortunately, they have nothing to say rooted in fact or logic but I did spend a few amusing hours going rounds with Attorney P.Michael Nugent. Who, incidentally, is the Executive Director of Creative America and as one would guess, on the MPAA payroll. Pretty sad when your base leaves you hanging to fend for yourself.
Copyright societies that collect royalties as part of compulsory licensing in the European Union (EU) usually hold monopolies in their respective national markets. In Germany, case law has established the so-called GEMA Vermutung, a presumption that works are managed by the Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte (GEMA) due to its monopoly position. As such, in Germany the burden of proof is on the accused infringer that the work is not managed by GEMA.
Sorry, not a fan of posting stuff from wikipedia but my German is non-existent.
Fuck it, If I have to use my real name on FB might as well do it here. You folks need to get off your ass and stop thinking about things and do something about it. Arguing with these clowns is liking shooting fish in a barrel.
Will you lazy humps please head to FB and say something.
