These idiots do understand that by filing a covenant that they have therefore stated that there alleged trademark can no be used by anyone without licensing whatsoever and ipso facto creates an untenable trademark.
In fact the covenant by filing it could actually negate any claim to a trademark ever of this sign.
Also the standing of Kunkle isn't specifically taken away by the covenant, and the standing by any affected parties (ie: citizens of portland) is definately not affected either
It seems to me as a non US citizen that the relationship that the US State's have with Lexis is a little bit too cosy and that by Georgia stating on all their official correspondence that people must refer to the OCGA and not the actual legislation itself that exclusive dealing is occurring.
Georgia cannot have it both ways, either they allow EVERYONE free access to the OCGA or they stop stating that it is the 'official' (no matter what the legislature says) source.
In Australia for example what Georgia is doing is absolutely prohibited and called 'third line forcing'. In other words Georgia is forcing someone to acquire goods/services ONLY from Lexis or not at all. Criminal behaviour in Aust actually.
Re: Somewhere in that wall of legalisms is mention that "fair use" is complex. But was not a false takedown.
So based on your logic you should be ok with being absolutely censored or in fact better still IMHO all your writings being taken down with no oversight whatsoever on Techdirt and beyond because.. and I quote from you
Nope they were not smirking.. in fact far from it.. The amount of phone calls made after that questioning sessions with worried looks on all pharmaceutical was a moment of lol's for anyone else in attendance..
they have sort of stepped on their own cranks with that statement, and the Tax avoidance inquiry is one that both sides of government are pushing for to find ways to actually get the tax and maybe criminally charge directors (breaching the corporate veil) as well.
These statements were not expected and came quite out of left field because they were so confidant in their responses (HA!) and it has now created a major headache for the govt and Big Pharma, and it's all of there own making!
Again.. they were not smiling one little bit, nervous with lots of calls to counsel and murmerings of OMG, WTF have we done instead :) (Aust is not same as US in political bribery/donations etc and senate at moment is VERY hostile to International businesses)
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Travel bans for Australian citizens
No... you need to be a dual national with the ALLEGATION of 'terrorist related offenses' placed against you and the Minister can then on their whim remove your Australian Citizenship.
The proposed legislation requires No conviction, nor judicial oversight. It will INSTANTLY meet with a High Court Challenge and the law will be repealed. The Govt knows this, Ministers within the Govt have already leaked there horror about the proposals (Mostly ones who have been practicing solicitors).
As for the current law. YES it has been enacted a fair few times, just no convictions using it since the courts here do NOT kowtow to govt bullshit propaganda or wishes.
All three of your paragraphs are so wrong that the wrongness is incredible.
In fact what you've just said in ALL THREE of your paragraphs is one of the most insanely idiotic and wrong things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent responses were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought or even correct. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to it...
Re: Had minion read the Brisbane comments: no one has ever been prosecuted under the prior law.
No one was ever prosecuted (and they mean convicted) since the courts have always dismissed the charges ( a whole heap of people have been charged with it though)
In fact the new legislation that the current Liberal party is going for is for NO judicial oversight, no Procedural fairness, and all based on what the Minister wants. Our constitution specifically forbids this sort of power being laced in the hands of any politician. We had a similar thing in 1957 when the then government tried to do same thing with communists. It then after the high court wiped the law went to a referendum, the referendum failed BIG TIME!
You like most of your comments have no fucking clue what you are talking about, and this is nothing to do with the labor party (who some in it are actually all for this change in legislation).
Next time before you comment out of the blue like, on something you have no clue on SHUT THE FUCK UP! Or you make yourself look more incompetent and moronic then we already know you are
