The Beastie Boys' original lyrics were dripping with irony. They aren't male pigs looking to stifle a good message, they are artists rightfully looking to be paid for the use of their original work in an ENTIRELY COMMERCIAL endeavor. The song was used to profit - it wasn't a homegrown YouTube creation with no monetary connections. It happens to be an excellent video with a good message, but that doesn't give it the right to steal someone's music for your product.
Your article's stance strikes me as trying to drum up gender controversy where there is none in a bid for pageviews. Well, congratulations.
Not only is the US Government corrupt like Russia's and China's, the US mainstream news media is corrupt like Russia's and China's. The US media has moved from watchdog to corrupt participant! Obama can attack your freedoms and your life and the news media still cheers!
Yes, the Obama Administration has created the most corrupt administration in US History. All of his Appointees are talented LIARS and are familiar with the Chicago Way. There is a reason that there are massive numbers of murders in Chicago and that Illinois is bankrupt with high unemployment. Democrats, the Mob, the Russian Mob, the Cartels - they are all the same.
The fools at Monster Cable sued Disney/Pixar over the "Monsters Inc." film and got their butt kicked. Officially it was "settled", which really meant Monster went away empty handed and probably paid Disney's legal expenses to boot!
Chicago was declared the most politically corrupt city in the nation by the Univ of Illinois. Illinois the third most corrupt state. You would expect its leaders to try to hide from the people. Note Obama is Chicago's ranking politician ;-)
You mean, beyond providing CDs for free, employ 500 people including many Debian developpers, bringing Linux for the masses, create an easy to use distro, certify hardware that works out of the box, have deals with HP, Asus, Acer, Dell, Lenovo, etc to provide Ubuntu pre-installed, invest in server and cloud technologies you can download and use for free, provide repositories, packages and upgrades for free, etc? Yeah, they do so little...
What the police are saying is that warning oncoming traffic of anything that might effect they way they are driving is illegal. For instance there is a 10 car pileup around the corner or the bridge is out, tell anyone in an attempt to create a safer passage. your asking for a fine.
Of course I understand that way of thinking and so should everyone.
