This means you can change your ToS to read that we all have to send you money each month. Or we are guilty of hacking you and we go to jail. You could be rich! without having to anything more than you already have.
I'm not denying the ability to freely post something. I just think that it would have been a much better more intelligent move to point to the archives.org page that show's her past opinions or put the text of what she said on a website that show's who's it is. If they just re-posted the site verbatim that is misleading people into probably thinking that she still believes whatever it says. If they cut it up/point to an archive of it(which is an obvious archive) they have the legitamacy of saying this is what she thought and now she has flip-flopped.
I'm not sure I completely agree with Mike on this one. Re-posting on something like archives.org is one thing. But just posting up the site and moving it to it's own domain seems a little wrong(unless of course they are just using the original linking and then she's an idiot for not taking the material off the server which would solve the whole problem). If they had cut it up to make commentary on it that would be one thing. I just don't think wholesale re-posting is something that should be allowed.
Anyone else find the fact that this person used "so as to maintain civil society and make a better world." and then shouted "NOT BE PANZIES for THE UNITED STATES HOMOSEXUAL ACTING UNIONS" That doesn't seem to me to be civil. Nor part of making a better world.
The point of the comment is that your wrong, this is both a technical and legal subject. You thinking that the law is "absolutlely retarded" doesn't mean that the law doesn't figure into the equation.
You can log into any number of wifi connections and be registered as their IP, agreed. The problem is that if they know it or not they are legally responsible for the activities that you do while on their connection. I disagree with this law but the unfortunate fact is that it is currently the law.
I agree with mike as the fact is alot of these letters end up going to people that have no idea what a torrent file is, they also unfortunatly don't have any idea how to secure a wireless connection, or have grandkids, or insert any number of other issues. They also don't have the money to fight a corporation in these situations so unless the Hurt locker guys can get some kind of concrete evidence that the people that pay the bills for the internet connections that are identified are actually the ones that downloaded the movie I think this needs to stop.
Wow, you need to calm down a bit, while you are correct from a technical standpoint, Justin appears to me to be just trying to help, not to mention from a legal standpoint I believe that the law would agree with Justin. As unless you can prove that you are an ISP you are legally responsible for what happens over your internet connection.
Re: Re: Re: Re: At what point is it stolen property?
You totally just contradicted yourself. "Wrong. The police are executing a warrant to obtain the stolen property, not discover who sold it." then "Fine. That does not change the nature of the search. The police were looking for information. " Those are very different statements and it completely changes if the search is legal or not.
Along with the others that have replied you could also, oh I don't know, maybe point people to a government site that has information in detail of the emergency, or perhaps give a phone number to call for details about it, maybe a time that there will be an address from the government about it? Just a couple ways you could use 160 characters to give enough information.
While I wish to agree with you, (and I do about not buying or pirating the game) I don't think that they will change, what they will do is what they have been doing for a long time now, and that is to ignore the PC as a game platform. For a long time a number of the bigger game houses have been making games for the consoles and then porting them to the PC. If we ignore the games completely on the PC then they will assume that most of the market has gone to the consoles because that is what they WANT to believe, as it's much easier to control things there.
