Mike, thanks for pointing out the url to the 9th circuit web page for this case.
I looked at each of the Brief Of Amici Curiae that were filled in this case, its interesting to note not only the vast number people and organizations that signed their names to these briefs, but the fact that every single one is in favor of Google / You Tube.
Its amazing how a judge can make a decision that is so wrong and receive such a public backlash and still stand behind his decision, its as though he thinks that decision is supported by written law, which it clearly isnt.
its decisions like this why I think there needs to be a more comprehensive review of judges mental status and ability to perform their duties. Because in my view after seeing the ruling, its entirely possible that this judge blew a gasket or fouled a couple spark plugs and isnt running on all cylinders.
Its not enough to just post an article about the bullshit attempts of law enforcement at violating the rights of a citizen.
No, Tech Dirt had to make sure and post the portions of her facebook post that included the phone numbers of both the police chief and the city attorney. Lets take this so called harassment and intimidation of public officials to a national (potentially international) level.
You gotta love it, keep up the good work!
And considering how many other news sites run stories based on TD's work, this story will be read by potentially millions in no time flat, I'll bet these small town backwoods cops haven't even began to feel the fallout of their douchbaggery...
