But "legally-speaking" US Govt are not going to use DMCA...
They will just say "this is a matter of National Security.... We're taking your personal computer, any computer on campus that may contain a portion of the streamed clip in their cache, and just because we can, all the YouTube Servers as a punishment for your heinous crimes."
Don't really know, Google aquired it from @Last software to bolster it's 3D buildings in maps/earth. It was just sold to Trimble this year, but there are thousands of profressionals (We use it at my office now for final renderings), We have the paid version in my office which allows higher resolution outputs, but I know others that just use the free version.
I think my school primarily told us they owned everything so they could keep work for accreditation purposes without students crying foul (every 2-6 years depending on how well you scored), as any work they kept they typically gave you a 2 week window to pick up after an accreditation cycle (which was problematic because if they decided to keep your thesis work, you could be 5 years out of school and moved across the country and you had 2 weeks to arrange pick up of your best work before it hit a 40 yard dumpster outside).
Most of my work was created on my system with either free software (google sketchup), free educational versions from autodesk, or other versions not provided by the school. (although plotted on their printers), or Hand drafted with my own tools (albeit on their desk).
I am a little surprised that this hasn't really happened yet, because it is value I could see myself paying for, but why havn't more websites offered "Ad Free" paywall solutions, similar to mobile apps, spotify, etc. It'd be interesting to know how much you would have to pay a website to remove the ads per user. If I could pay $5 to $12 bucks for a year of ad-free techdirt, I probably would.
Mike if your reading this, what would you have to charge to do something like this?
Regardless if they decide to end their own life or not they know that their LEGACY will live on (forever in google's archives). And that in their mentally deranged mind they know they WILL receive the attention, being dead is just a side-effect, one that they are okay with.
These horrible outbreaks of violence is as simple as Dog Training. If we Stopped giving attention to kids who do bad things, the kids will realize that bad things don't get recognition / attention they seek and won't do them.
When someone kills enough people They get facebook campaigns, National Media coverage, people who were there are interviewed on the TODAY show, there are special interruptions into primetime TV, and the president will make a heart-felt announcement about the event.
Now Re-read that paragraph starting from "They get".... I cannot think of how we could reward bad behavior anymore than we already do. This is like giving your dog a slab of bacon for pooping on your floor. I just do not get it. You want to stop horrible mass shootings, stop rewarding them. Lock them away (if they survive) and never speak about them again.
