" Judge: Are you trying to show contempt for this court, Mr Smith? Smith: No, My Lord. I am attempting to conceal it.
Judge: Have you ever heard of a saying by Bacon — the great Bacon — that youth and discretion are ill-wedded companions? Smith: Yes, I have. And have you ever heard of a saying of Bacon — the great Bacon — that a much-talking judge is like an ill-tuned cymbal?
Smith (to witness): So, you were as drunk as a judge? Judge (interjecting): You mean as drunk as a lord? Smith: Yes, My Lord.
Master of the Rolls: Really, Mr Smith, do give this Court credit for some little intelligence. Smith: That is the mistake I made in the Court below, My Lord."
Re: Re: This is 3rd partly liability that you approve of!
The conclusion from this is that the US are hypocrits. They push trade agreements on others to further their own interests but refuse to abide by them whenever it doesn't suit. The rest of the world should take note and stop making agreements with the US until there is some evidence that the US will act in good faith.
Re: This is 3rd partly liability that you approve of!
It's perfect example of how destructive those globalist "treaty" organizations are, that's all.
No it's a perfect of example of US hypocrisy. All in favour of these trade organisations and treaties when they benefit the US but the moment they find themselves on the receiving end of what they dish out to others all the time they throw a hissy fit and try to pretend it's not happening.
The analogy with computers is incorrect - computers are stil (just about) in the "rapid progress" phase of their development. Aircraft passed through that phase between 1900 and 1970. (Compare the Wright Flyer with Concorde or an F15 and you will see what I mean). The low hanging fruit in aviation progress is all gone. YOur statement " If you asked a person 20 years ago if we'd have computers 1000s of times more powerful at the palm of our hands and everybody would have one probably you'd get laughed at." translates in aviation terms to " If you asked a person in 1930 if we'd be flying at twice the speed of sound and ordinary people would be able to fly at 500mph plus to a holiday destination by 1970 probably you'd get laughed at."
Re: Re: Re: Well I think that copyright education is very important
Let's try reform first, and if that still doesn't work, then we may as well abolish copyright.
I used to think that way until I realised that what we started with was pretty much a "reformed" system - and what happened was that it became corrupted by the malevolent beneficiary organisations. I concluded that if we succeeded in reforming the system it wouldn't last very long before it became corrupted again.
Abolition is the only way because it is the only thing that would completely cut the funding of the lobbyists permanently.
This is standard US practice I'm afraid. SHamir is far from being the only one.
Appararently double Olympic Gold winner Mo Farah gets stopped and hassled by US immigration/customs every time he travels to the US. He even tried waving his Gold medals at the officials om one occasion - it had no effect on the jobsworths.
It seems that being called "Mohammed" is enough to get you classified as a threat - even if you are a well known international sportsman.
Not only that - but if you read the full pdf from the City of London Police - you find that the purpose of the document is listed as "Website Disruption" and the owner of the document is "PIPCU Prevention and Disruption" and it is identified as part of Operation Creative.
Since when has it been the role of any police force to disrupt the activities of people that they merely suspect are about to take part in criminal activity in order to prevent that activity?
Eventually they may actually understand their biggest problem has actually been their massive success the past several decades, but instead it's more convenient for them to stick their heads in the sand and blame technology.
But it was the technology that gave them that success in the first place. Where was the content industry in 1000 AD?
They need to react like Job
(substitute "technology" for "Lord")
"the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord."
