The term that Gibbs uses implies that he did not send the notice himself but instructed someone else to do it. Of course the term also implies they followed his instruction. It will be interesting to watch the finger pointing when the questioning about the Verizon declaration comes up.
Paul Hansmeier missed his true calling. After spending way too much time last night reading the depo, I haven't seen tap dancing that entertaining since the duet by Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov in "White Nights".
I would think with the recent news that the Netherlands was doing away with Database rights, and making more efforts to make their IP laws make some type of sense that the IIPA would be pushing to have them on it.
If you had said (certainly any over about 100 employees) I might think you are right. Many companies with fewer employees look at that recurring annual cost versus the price of a boxed set, and opt for the boxed set and operate with different versions depending making a support problem for those of us handling it. I've tried repeatedly to get my company of about 25 employees to go the licensing route but they look at the cost and tell me to deal with the mixed environment.
Did you actually listen, or did you just want to take a jab.
I'm an old foggy, but I liked their last album. I like what I've heard on the new album. I appreciated the personal e-mail exchange that Andy had with me after I bought their album when the transparency post was here at TD.
Assuming you did listen and really didn't like it, aren't you glad that they are confident enough in their art and their fans that they let you listen before you had to pay so you know you don't want it?
Like I said, there was no searching involved in my case. The incident in the post says the officer "insisted he help them look for the drugs", which sounds very different than them digging through things looking for them. Again I think it really depends on the respectfulness shown by the people involved.
The entire week after a death is hectic. I'm personally think that them being there for that at the same time as the funeral home people gets it out of the way and gives you one less thing to have to do later and is possible less intrusive than doing it later. You have a mess of strangers in your home then anyway. In my case since the local pharmacy didn't have the morphine, it would have meant a 30 mile drive later when I had other things to do to return the drugs to the pharmacy. All it takes is a little respect and diplomacy from the officer involved.
The practice of the police coming after a death of someone with legal narcotics in the house is not new. When my father passed away at home in 1998 in a small town in Arkansas the police arrived along with the hospice nurse and the funeral home representatives.
The nurse and police officer together inventoried and then disposed of the morphine in the house. I assumed this was both to keep it from being misused, and to confirm that no one had overdosed him.
In that incident it did not feel like an invasion at all. I guess it depends on the respectfulness shown by the officer. They did not search the house, they just asked for me to bring the morphine at an appropriate moment, took it into the kitchen and performed their procedure.
"After all, the Copyright Alliance isn't a part of the United States government, ..."
How can you tell?? They are in all the back rooms of government helping make the laws. The Justice Department makes announcements from their (members) offices. They tell the government which websites to go after. What exactly is the distinction????
The notice/update about adding the 2 additional charities was made 2 days after the campaign started, on the campaign site, so as long as the original 2 get all of the amount at that time, I don't see where there is room to complain.
Well he copied "Thunder" from the name of the team, and he copied "Let's go" from the chant of every other team in America (or is that Amercia). It makes perfect sense to me that he should get wealth from then combining the two. If he had added two claps between every time the line was repeated it would of been worth 50% of the teams gross.
