As I understand it, it is. These releases are only extending the copyright 20 years from now not 70. Unless the EU decides to extend copyright again, these particular recordings should enter the public domain January 1, 2035.

Concerning your every two year super election idea, the entire House of Representatives is elected on a two year cycle. Senators serve staggered six year terms and the President is elected every four years. We already, as a nation, vote for the entire House and one-third of the Senate every two years. I don't think adding the other two-thirds of the Senate and the President to that cycle would help much at all.
I don't know about Utah but, as someone who has just finished studying to become an insurance producer in Michigan there shouldn't be an issue as long as they don't discount the software for people who buy insurance. If their software is freeware regardless of the purchase of insurance it shouldn't be considered rebating.
I could see that working for the EU member country versions of Google for a day or so just to show the people what their governments are asking for. Of course, everyone would still be able to access Google.com to get normal results. The situation would have to get much worse before the pros would outnumber the cons for Google to do this though.
If you use an OTA antenna and access any of the networks that way, your category is already covered by Nielsen. In fact, I was in the same situation the one time my family's house was selected as a Nielsen house back when I still lived with my mother. It was quite an informative experience.
Unfortunately, Missouri is an 'at-will' state. Meaning that, unless your employment contract states otherwise, you can be fired without notice for no reason at all or for any reason not specifically declared as illegal discrimination under the law.
Here's a link to the bill itself, the language is a bit more precise than the articles I've read about it state. For example, it specifically states that the data collection must be without the consent of the people who the data is collected on and without a warrant or valid court order to trigger this law.
Really? This is wonderful news. My district borders that one and sometimes I had to deal with improperly targeted advertisements for this guy. Maybe this most recent load of crap is just to build him up for his future audience?
I'm torn. I'm glad that I don't live in Rogers' district (although, if we lose any representatives in 2020, my district might be combined with that one) because I don't have to deal with the people who would elect someone like that to federal office. However, I almost want to live there so that I could try to vote him out of office.
It's been a couple years since I was last on the roadways in the Chicago area. Have they increased the freeway speed limits from 55 MPH yet? If not, how didn't they catch more speeders? I've never seen anyone doing less than 65 (myself included) unless the traffic was horrible.
Just as a note for #1, the passcode check there is pre-boot so it can't be keylogged since no apps are running yet (they're still encrypted after all). As for #4, I don't know about iOS but Android's device encryption is open source.
The Constitution only protects a person from having the federal government (and after the fourteenth amendment, states governments as well) limit their speech. Contracts between individuals or between a person and a company/corporation have always been able to limit speech. After all, that's what non-disclosure agreements do. This is necessary just as there are laws prohibiting contracts from being enforceable if they require a party to break the law.
Yeah, we live in a federal presidential constitutional republic. It's not a democracy since the people don't directly vote on laws at the national level. Which is nitpicking I know but, terminology is important.
I don't know why I haven't heard this point before. Of course mobile providers are under Title II since they're providing telephone service. They seem to be making money hand over fist. Why isn't anyone breaking down the wired ISP's points about not being able to improve their networks under Title II by pointing at the mobile providers? Am I missing something important?
This is quite true. The United States, at the national level, is a federal presidential constitutional republic. Our states are members of a 'federation' (the United States) rather than simply being administrative divisions of a unitary state. We have a President who is both head of state and head of the executive branch who is elected by the people separately from the legislature. Finally, we, according to our constitution, have a government where the power resides in and derives from the people which makes us a republic. Most, if not all, of our states have functionality where the public can directly vote on certain laws or amendments to state constitutions which makes them much closer to democracies than our federal government but, as the AC I'm replying to noted, the United States of America has never been an actual democracy.
The word 'slave' isn't present anywhere however one good example is the (since repealed of course) last paragraph of Article IV, Section 2 which reads:
No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.
That section effectively forced non-slave states to respect the property rights of slaveholders from slave states as well as respecting contracts of indentured servitude written up in states where such things were legal.
A more recognised section would be from Article I, Section 2, Paragraph 3 which reads, in yet another repealed part:
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.
The "three fifths of all other Persons" in that quote are slaves. Once again, no mention by name but the intent was there.
If you read the asterisked footnote for the leftmost bar, it says that the 4 mbps up / 1 mbps down data is actually for 3 mbps up / 768 kbps down since those are the closest speeds that the FCC has data for. You'll also note that the words up and down are reversed...although that's probably a typo that propagated through cut and paste.
