The question keeps coming up, "How are these guys still practicing law?". Since we know that Judge Wright referred all of them to every bar they belong to, and the DOJ, and the IRS, can anyone take a guess as to how long any of those investigations might take, or till we at least hear anything more about any of them? I understand it's a long and slow process, but how long and how slow is that? 6 months? 1 year? 2 years?
If they've already decrypted 1 drive, and supposedly found cp on it, then they can go ahead and charge him with that. They want more, so they can pile on the charges and recommended sentencing, but do they really need more? Did they really decrypt the 1 drive and did they really find cp on it, or is it a ploy?
More people might want to start using apps that upload video to the internet as it's being recorded. Lose the phone or memory card, or have it deleted, they'll usually miss the uploaded version. Some, like the free ACLU app, even use secure servers so uploaded videos *can't* be deleted.
Yes, as many others say, expect them to appeal.
But I think the only thing they can appeal is the fee award. The referrals to the various bar associations, the DOJ, and the IRS, aren't court orders making somebody do something, so they can't be stopped. They're just notices to completely separate agencies about what's going on. If any/all of these other agencies decide to start their own investiagation/prosecution, they do it under their own power and not via this court order, so it can't be stopped by appealing this. Not to mention that
What's going on with the real Alan Cooper's lawsuit against Steele and company, or whoever it is? Couldn't he make that a criminal complaint of identity theft, probably with the FBI since the incorporation was based offshore?
..."in his case against Facebook, Zuckerberg looks to be (unsurprisingly) closer to falling apart completely after the court has decided that the extremely damning evidence of fraud can be discussed in the case."
Not to be a nit, and maybe I'm sleepy, but I got so hung up on the last sentence of this article, that I'm stuck in an infinite logical loop, and must retire...
Same here. If only he'd used "and" instead of a comma between Facebook and Zuckerberg.
While I can see Masnick's point of view, in that a tool provider shouldn't [normally] be liable for what it's users do with it, does it change the tool provider's liability if/when that tool is designed specifically to do nothing but spam and violate Twitter TOS? especially if they're circumventing the provided API
It's my understanding that CBS didn't block the entire show, but just blocked them from using an official, albeit unused, ST script.
The original author of this unused script liked the project so much, that he was even going to direct it for free. Nothing I read explained how CBS came to own the script he wrote, whether he sold it to them way back in the day or it was a work-for-hire.
