Re: Re: Even the Copyright Registration Office Agrees That Monkeys Can't Hold Copyrights
So what if the monkeys hold the copyright as you claim.
If we follow your logic the monkeys hold the copyright.
Great, the monkeys can not enter into a contract to transfer their rights to Caters. Nor can the monkeys bring a lawsuit for the improper use of their photos either.
So the monkeys having copyright is the same as if the photos are public domain, no one can control how these photos are used.
If they had a safe as evidence and you lost the key or forgot the combination they would hire a locksmith and get the evidence.
If you forgot the password to your encrypted disk let them hire someone to crack the encryption.
No need to shred the 5th amendment.
They more they push this issue the more people will fight back with new technology. For example criminal hears his front door get knocked in, presses a certain keyboard combination causing his solid state encrypted hard drive, along with some fuel source, to catch fire and become ashes in a matter of seconds.
They should be happy enough that given enough time they might some day be able to decrypt some data.
But no thats not good enough, they want to see technology advance so they are left with a pile of ashes to decrypt.
I could even see a company selling such a hard drive.
It would be encased in such a way that when activated it would not start a fire externally. It would be activated by not seeing the correct pass-phrase after some period of time or after X number of incorrect pass-phrase attempts. Maybe even activated if it detected being tampered with physically.
Companies and Governments would purchase these in bulk for laptops that contain sensitive data.
No more concerns over lost laptops!
Anyone want to invest and help me bring this to market?
This is no different than calling customer service:
Customer: Please stop sending me txt messages
CSR: Ok, you would like us to stop sending you text messages?
CSR: Ok, I have setup your account so you will no longer receive txt messages. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
People make mistakes, things are misunderstood, it is REASONABLE to confirm what the customer wants so there is no confusion. It is also REASONABLE to confirm that the customer is actually making the request.
Not confirming and causing a customer to loose a feature they want would be UNREASONABLE.
You also neglect to understand how simple it is to spoof an email.
If ONE email is enough to say you do not want anymore messages then all a malicious person needs to know is your email address and THEY can make that request for you.
With the confirmation process the malicious party can not complete the removal process just by simply knowing your email address.
The supreme law of the land still states:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
As I have said before, wanting to fly on an airplane does not make you a terrorist and as such they have no probable cause to perform a search.
