Re: The TD article is missing a crucial fact, where illucidates the Court's ruling.
Regardless, taking this to Google is not the answer. It needs to be removed at the source because anybody, including other search engines, can still get to the information. The problem isn't being fixed, it's just being swept under the rug.
You weren't comparing the police to their past behavior. You were comparing them to Arpaio.
But if a police dept. changes from abusing human rights to not abusing human rights, I'm not going to complain and call it a double standard. I'm going to praise them for getting better, whatever the reason.
"Arpaio has been accused of various types of misconduct, including abuse of power, misuse of funds, failure to investigate sex crimes, improper clearance of cases, unlawful enforcement of immigration laws, and election law violations."
What the San Francisco police are doing here is clearly not the same thing, and it's not a double standard.
I don't know about you but if I couldn't return to the country for 90 days I'd pretty much be bankrupt and out of work. Even if my job supported me by keeping my job available, I doubt they would pay me for those three months away.
And I wouldn't mind except I have yet to see a good reason why we need this ban. What's the justification? What's the benefit? It's not like terrorists are using their green cards to get into the U.S. to blow things up.
You realize when you register something, you're supposed to give the Library of Congress a copy so they can verify if it's been infringed. If you want to give them a copy of all your emails, go right ahead.
People are only going to bother with copyrighting stuff they feel needs a copyright - i.e. something they hope to make a profit on or at least consider worthy creative works.
I'd rather have some rules regarding abuse of the system than a mandatory fee, esp. since fees have a tendency to keep increasing over time.
And there's no reason the whole system can't be mostly automated.
Copyright will never be the sole motivation for creation, just like I don't buy a car so I can have car insurance. Copyright is supposed to be protection for something the creator feels is worth protecting. Most creations are not worth protecting.
