Perhaps, but copyright covers expression of ideas, not the ideas themselves.
Tell that to the publishers, labels and studios that go after others for the slightest resemblance to a distinctive element of the works that they have obtained the copyright on. Also if what you said was true, then fan-fiction would be more widely circulated.
There are a few implications here. First, if following the law has virtually the same implications of breaking it, why bother? Why respect such law? If people decide to go "pirate" and simply disregard such laws then there will be much more work for the MAFIAA which will clog the legal system with lawsuits resulting from such inherent disrespect for those laws. Everybody loses in the end.
You have it backwards when technology allowed people to read and hear not sanctioned news thats when the govervment went to war against technology they simply want to regain the control they used to have Also mexican history is plagued by corruption and i am pretty sure this law will pass and people cant do anything
How biblical of you to seek an eye for an eye. But is that really a just punishment; even in this case? The talking heads convinced us that mandatory sentencing was essential and it led to the mess we are in now.
Be careful what you ask for because what goes around has a funny way of coming back around and it might be good to think about the cost/benefit analysis here...
The opening scenes of the TV show Profit (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115323/) & (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profit_%28TV_series%29) has the main character doing just this thing; committing multiple crimes, confessing to the crimes, and then saying that nobody would ever commit those very crimes.
They don't mind ignoring the rest of the constitution... why should it now matter when it comes to defending them?
Treat others as you would like to be treated. When the government has taken the path of excessive punishment for petty crime (IP infringement being a GREAT EXAMPLE) then they should likewise experience a disproportionate response when they are caught breaking the law too.
The US constitution for all intents and purposes is now trash. The absolute reality is that the Government can and will toss your arse into jail for any reason. History shows that the American people really don't care as much as we say we do or it would have never gotten this far.
My hair is fine/shoulder length and, after years of colouring and straightening my hairdresser has advised me to have loads cut off because it's too dry. I was gutted! I've been scouring the internet for reviews on products like Biolustre when I came across your site.
Re: The cops shouldn't be allowed to turn off squad car cameras...ever
Exactly, there is ZERO reason to turn the camera off unless you're trying to hide something!!! The Camera is not only there to protect the Citizen but more so the Cops that get accused for things that didn't happen.
Funny how any Video that makes them look Bad gets taken from people, lost, deleted, etc. Every once in a while they slip up like in this case!!!
