    Just how the hell is the SEC snooping on our emails? They are NOT a law enforcement agency. So, the SEC is violating the privacy rights of every American without having the authority to do so.

    Just because they are a government agency doesn't mean they have the authority to snoop our communications.

    Any idiot who relies on cloud services or online data storage needs to be hung from a tree until they are no longer breathing. How much effort does ti take to go out and buy a couple of blank DVDs or Blu-ray disks and just backup your data, or buy an external hard drive and backup your information that way.

    I have never trusted online data storage and I never will. If I need to back something up, I buy some blank disks, that way I don't have to worry about the DOJ searching my files and seizing the server I have stored my files on.

    Putting the CIA in charge of declassifying the senate's report is like putting a murder suspect in charge of his own prosecution.

    You guys keep forgetting that these file-sharers downloaded porn illegally. They got caught. Then they received a settlement letter. They paid the small settlement.

    So, where was the fraud?

    Just because Prenda Law is misleading the courts regarding their appearances and testimony doesn't mean it has anything to do with the monies they received.

    I hate to side with Prenda Law on this but Judge Ericksen is correct on this one. While the courts can put a stop to Prenda's settlement letters going forward, forcing Prenda to pay back that settlement money that had already been paid to Prenda was a step over the lines.

    I'm all for stopping these law firms from actions like this but to force them to pay back monies they have already collected? The courts only have the ability to stop further collection efforts, not to force Prenda to send back monies already collected.

    Their fraud on the court is one thing, it doesn't affect what they are legitimately collecting from filesharing users.

    Garcia is a total freaking idiot. Everybody knows that once you upload something to the internet, it's impossible to take it down because, when you try to get lawsuits and the courts involved in the process, you get people like you and men who will go out of their way to upload as many copies of the film as possible, just to spite this ignorant woman for making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Neither Garcia nor the courts can force Google to remove every copy from the internet. All they can do is disable the videos from Youtube and remove the links from their search engine. They cannot scrub the video nor the links from Yahoo, Bing, Excite and the hundreds of other search engines our there.

    Anybody who believes that Microsoft will actually change their attitudes about independently searching your email, raise your hand.

    If you didn't notice, I was being sarcastic.

    Nobody should ever trust Microsoft again because if they were willing to do it once, they are more likely to do so again.

    This is why I do NOT ever use cloud services. That's like sending up a flare to the U.S. Government and the FBI shouting "COME AND GET ME".

    Uh, KlearGear are a bunch of idiotic morons. There's no way that any credit card company would allow such a bogus $50 dispute fee. I find it laughable that they're trying this tactic.

    And yet public officials will continue acting like it's still against the law, as police officers keep routinely doing.

    The playback in Washington when Democrats or Republicans want to blame someone is "Blame Snowden". You never hear of Democrats or Republicans taking responsibility for the messes that they create.

    If this gets approved by Congress and Obama signs it into law, it only says one thing: that President Obama and the Democratic Party have come to the realization that the NSA and their bulk data collection of every American has indeed become detrimental to the re-election chances of Democrats for the U.S. Congress.

    At any rate, it doesn't matter what Obama does. While the November elections are not set in stone as to who will win, Democrats are not going to prevail in November because of everything that has happened since Snowden revealed the hypocracy of the Obama Administration.

    The NSA spying has caused irreparable harm to Democrats. But, if this had happened under under the Republican's watch, then it would be the Republicans paying the price.

    It's just ironic that Democrats, who have long fought for constitutional rights and lessening government intrusion into our lives IS the very same party who has been raping our constitutional rights when it comes to privacy.

    I suppose the motto of the Obama Administration is "do as we say and NOT as we do".

    What's everyone complaining about? We haven't had the protection of the Fourth Amendment since September 11th, 2001. Our government, who are actually the employees of every American Taxpayer, don't feel that the people should be protected by the U.S. Constitution.

    I'm shocked that King Barrack Obama hasn't abolished the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Justice System, the U.S. Congress or the U.S. Supreme Court. After all, we live in the United States of Obama.

    While I find the tactics by this lawyer to be reprehensible, the morons who are posting reviews about the lawyer are nothing but trolls who could find themselves facing defamation lawsuits for posting reviews about the law firm considering they have no personal experiences with that law firm.

    This also happened with those buffoons from Amy's Baking Company, who were featured on Kitchen Nightmares. Morons need to understand you need to stop acting like trolls and posting fake reviews because that does nothing but generate legal problems for yourselves.

    Tim is misleading everyone by linking to the lawyer's review page on Yelp because those fake reviews are just that, fake negative reviews because people don't have any common sense to realize that they are engaging in defamation against a law firm.

    I find it appalling that the airline would send out text messages. Talk about a major failure on the part of the airlines. They should have notified these families in person, not through A FUCKING TEXT MESSAGE.

    I disagree with Tim that this isn't an issue. It IS.

    This is a WTF moment to receive a text message from the airline because they simply don't want to address these families 'face-to-face'.

    I hope these families sue the shit out of this airline.

    Not only that but I decided to check it out and would have ordered a pair until I realized the cost for them. Stuffed animals and stickers? Really? No thanks and $75 just to get the Monki Bars? No thank you.

    The act gives a definition of terrorism as an act or threat "designed to influence the government", that "is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause" and that would pose a "serious risk" to the health or safety of a section of the public.

    That description classifies the entire UK political system as nothing but one massive terrorist organization. I wonder why UK politicians, not to mention, the United States Government, aren't listed as the largest worldwide terrorist organizations to ever operate on this planet.

    mSpy might be setting itself up for major liability. While it might be technically legal for companies to record metadata, it's against the for private companies to knowingly spy on cellphone consumers without their knowledge and without a search warrant. It also opens the giver of the cellphone up to violations of someone's constitutional rights.
