the #1 problem here, is copyrights.. WHO sets the abilities and HOW my car drives.. They are customizing things to the point that your CAR isnt YOUR CAR..modding and adjusting and anything TECH is not giving the consumer Access to do anything to these cars..
So, who is responsible FOR ITS DRIVING? not you. Since you have no or little responsibility to HOW the car drives...WHO gets the ticket? WHO get to goto jail if it kills someone?
If they want to OWN all of the control of the car...arnt the makers responsible for its working? This could mean they are responsible for the INSURANCE ALSO...as you are no longer the driver.
I would LOVE this..for a few good reasons.. UPDATES?? they find a flaw in the coding, and you dont have access to UPDATE IT..who is responsible? The Computer FAILS and you are stranded...who is responsible? There are to many things about driving, that makes the CAR responsible, and NOT the driver..
I thought there was a restriction on cruise missiles going over countries..without declaring war..
ALSO, my earlier post about Locating hackers.. HOW??
Did they call up the ISP in the area and ask for an address?? BAD HACKER.. He didnt setup a remote, VPN, and SIT miles away from the location.. TELL me how you find a Good hacker, and I will suggest you have the WRONG ADDRESS..
"We have asked SoundCloud numerous times to recognise their responsibilities to take a licence to stop the infringement of our members’ copyrights "
I like the comment.. YOU NEED A LICENSE TO NOT INFRINGE???
This is like the RADIO and music business in the USA...PAY TONS of money in a bar, to have music played..Live or recorded.. Pay MONEY to have PIPED in music into offices and other location...Elevator music...is expensive..
http://aftinet.org.au/cms/node/519 The Philip Morris tobacco company is currently suing the Australian government over its tobacco plain packaging legislation, using an obscure 1993 Hong Kong- Australia investment treaty. Philip Morris is actually a US-based company, but could not sue under the US-Australia Free Trade Agreement, because public opposition kept this clause out of the agreement. Philip Morris rearranged its assets to become a Hong Kong investor in order to use an obscure treaty. This shows how giant global companies can abuse such clauses in trade agreements,’’ said Dr Ranald.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Morris_v._Uruguay The company complains that Uruguay's anti-smoking legislation devalues its cigarette trademarks and investments in the country and is suing Uruguay for compensation under the bilateral investment treaty between Switzerland and Uruguay. (Philip Morris is headquartered in Lausanne.)
The government is facing down legal threats from Big Tobacco over plans to introduce standardised packaging for cigarettes, with Japan Tobacco International (Ireland) threatening the government over it immimnent plans.
The tobacco industry has already demonstrated its ability to inflict expensive litigation in Australia, which is fighting tobacco giant Philip Morris over similar restrictions to those planned by the Irish government.
The Australian government has faced a number of separate legal challanges – domestically and internationally.
The World Trade Organisation is expected to rule on a legal challenge against Australia in 2016, according to a statement from Philip Morris.
If these agencies are so PROUD of what they do... Why does it take a TON of effort to get them to TELL US.. Why do they have to Erase so much in the effort.. I mean, that ITS NOT supposed to feel like we have the SS, and the Spanish inquisition in the middle of our country.. Does it??
1. that a DMCA take down must be 90% in its complaint list.. If looking for spider man 2...the Movie..the list must hit that name 90% or better.. 2. NOT a single word Search/title..you would get so many False hits, its stupid.
There probably are a few more, but lets start with those.
IT WONT HAPPEN..why? because the corps that post their own movie on Youtube, would remove their OWN media..which they HIT with DMCA all the time..Even the ones Pay to PLAY..
"55 million Americans -- 17 percent of the population -- lack access to advanced broadband, "
Here is what has happened.. The Main lines run along the highway..(copper/cable/fiber/...) along with that we can add 2 more. Cellphone and SAT.. If you have used the last 2, then you should realize they are NOT high speed.
Our Gov has paid the Major phone corps money, (I THINK TWICE, in the last 15 years) to get the fiber lines out to everyone..
Its really strange that they can claim 17% dont have access. when the only access they can/will have is Cellphone.
Construction is: Major cities first.. Smaller areas, next.. Freeway access, for cellphones. Jump points for Smaller towns and cities..
THEN those small towns, (generally Cable/DSL) have to get the connections OUT to the surrounding area.. But even in the larger Cities..Copper still rules the day from the HOUSE to the nearest Main junction.
What could be done with 2-3 fiber lines to every house? You could turn every house into a Cellphone base You could give every person a Wireless phone with a range of the WHOLE town.. You could give Electrical power You could give every channel in the world to them..
But who would be upset with 1-2 services being paid for all this? Every company that has their fingers in the pot..
Want an interesting thought? Fiber could supply electrical power to every home at a MUCH greater efficiency then copper. Copper looses about 1/4-1/3 of its strength running long distances..
Its funny, That its been shown that Music artists make little from the corps, and most on Live shows.. And even at that, they dont even get 1/2 the profit from tickets and sales..
Software? How many people Want evaluations and wonder how good a program is BEFORE they buy.. HOw many software sellers, say that IF' you open the Box, you cant return it?? How many software Magazines got PAID to write good reviews??
Movies?? Is it worth your $20+ to got a theater with 1 friend, and watch something from the past 20 years...when 1 in 20 movies was ALMOST good..not great.. Do you make enough money to Goto a theater more then 1 timer per month??
Sports? How much is that seat on the 50 yard line?? For a PUBLIC event converted to a PRivate showing of talent? I would pay $20 at HOME to watch it, with better view, Better Climate, and more beer(and not get arrested)..
What corps want.. For you to pay for every Scrap of Garbage and crap that LET you have..
What you want.. Is to watch/do what you wish, WHEN you wish it, at a reasonable cost..
Difference between MAjor and Minor BRANDS...every advert you see in the Arena, TV, Sign posts, on cars trucks, and tee shirts, YOU ARE PAYING FOR.. And the odds are that Both products are made in/by the same company..and 1 is 1/2 the price.
With an OPEN internet and being able to wonder around and find Almost anything. Videos of Idiots. Pictures and Dogs Humping.. With a bit of video editing, or Just Capture 1 Picture in a Video game... You can SAY anything. and have Proof..
With the Covert Ops of the past..its HARD for the people to know What has and have NOT been done in our OWN NATION..
It would be nice if our OWN gov would let us Know what they have FAILEd to do.
Long ago, there are a country that demanded that the people Live by the Rules in a book, derived and read to them by a representative... The books were expensive..and only those in the Church could read and interpret them..
Until the advent of the printing press, and making TONS of copies. And the Church having a FIT about it..
1. didnt know a Public LAW was Private.. 2. Didnt know a Public servant had any rights to Privacy. 3. without a signature on the annotations, how do you know Whom to pay and how much.. And how do you keep records of what was read and recorded...
When a computer cost 1/3 the price of a CAR.. When electronic in your home amounted to a TUBE based TV and a Toaster... And 1/3 of the USA wasnt even Born.. Computers of the time...Atari, Commodore, Intel, IBM, Compact, Kaypro, Apple 1 Operating systems? DOS, DOS, DOS, DOS Loading system, TAPE DRIVES or Cartridge loading..
Cost of a HARD DRIVE?? $$MILLIONS
Smart phones and PADS are 10-100 times as much power, in your hand.
That the broadcasters would WANT to make things cheaper for themselves.. THEY DONT..they hold all the cookies and get Paid from Every side..REALLY.. Long ago Cable had a good idea over the RELAY stations that Broadcast around the country..
The corps could install 2 Sats to cover ALL the USA..and Broadcast for free..and cover 80% of ALL of the Americas...
The MOST expensive thing to do...is to PROTECT yourself, Make things HARD to do..so that no one can steal your product.. But if you give it away FREE...its very simple..and COSTS LESS..
HOw to drop Excess channels.. Let people select the channels they want and pay for ONLY the ones they View. Considering customers watch about 20 channels out of 200+.. 90% of those channels are Paid under $0.50 to show..
Cable and Sat can monitor WHICH channels are watched..They know how many people are watching Which channels... Cable and Sat, could CHARGE the Broadcaster, insted of the consumer...If they dont get enough Viewers to PAY for the channel..
