At some point, it's easier and cheaper to just kill everyone you don't like.
But then who would they track? If there's no one to track, they can't justify buying all this nifty equipment (aka pork) to track them? And if they can't direct lucrative contracts now, who will hire them later when they retire? Please think these things through before you wildly speculate and make rash statements.
Bonus points if you grind them up and use them to feed the hungry.
Please, there's no profit in feeding the hungry. Now 'organic' fertilizer...
IANACL, but taken separately his arguments may almost have some merit. If someone allows use of copyrighted material for free, when they normally charge for it, I could understand the argument that it is a contribution (exception- material covered under fair use). This is not the case here, though, as the material is not used with permission. Analogy- if I own a convention center, and allow a political party to use it for free, it should be a contribution. Dion's argument in this case is more like they just walked in to the center and started giving speeches, when they're actually in the public park (fair dealing) next door. Doesn't make much sense.
What if I download my songs to a RAID-5 array of X tiny USB drives, and then sell all but one of the drives to someone one at a time, restoring the array between each sale*? It wouldn't be practical, but it would be fun to watch the judge's head slowly deflate as the technical details were assimilated.
*Note- with a RAID-5 array, the purchaser could extract the missing data on the last drive from the X-1 drives they have.
Only until their contract runs out. They'll all be free agents then, and are expected to go to different teams. The Marlins will have no fans then, except for any that they draft out of the college circuit.
Ashamed to be an American? Never. Don't let the enormous number of good deeds done by uncountable Americans be negated by the acts of these few morally bankrupt idiots.
Ashamed that these jackasses masquerading as public servants are? Deeply.
IANAL, but how is such a wanton display of a lack of morals, a blatant disregard for justice (and the law by reference), and brazen dereliction of their duty as prosecutors not sufficient for review for disbarment or criminal charges?
This is just a bit above nuts. This is one Chubby whose stature would have been improved by a bit of circumspection. Instead, he got a big rise from this Palm app. But when the cold wind of reason hits, hopefully this will all shrivel up to nothing.
