That doesn't have this level of institutionalized stupidity and I'll move there. The last 'FBI Win' a week ago was a dude that needed a ride to Walmart AND a loan of $40 from the CI to purchase the 'terror' supplies.
And yet, the Feds didn't know about Tim McVey, the first Twin Towers attack, the USS Cole in 2000, the 9/11 bombers, the London subway people, Charlie Hebdo (on this anniversary day), the Paris Opera, or California last month.
While I get that they need to maintain OpSec and CIs and methods how about freaking just stopping something for once? Or at least proving to us that you stopped people who were CAPABLE of something, unlike this poor soul who needs help just to function.
If they are automating it and if that process results in unsupportable (bogus) DMCA takedown requests then they are in violation of the legal attestation they are signing. The penalties for perjury need to be enforced.
A) It isn't a copyright issue. You cannot own copyright on an image you didn't take of a toy that you are (or will be) selling. Right of First Sale says the owner can do whatever the heck they want with the thing, including taking pictures and posting them. B) There is no "law" being enforced by Disney here. At best it is analogous to an embargo'd image, which is an agreement and not a law. C) There was a law broken, but Disney did it by using the DMCA process (twice!).
Anonymous Loser hates it when facts get in the way of his pitiful lurker existence. Bwaak!
Recently bought a one way ticket to travel for a relative's surgery. While the surgery date was known, the amount of time for recovery & physical therapy was not so it made more sense to buy a single trip. The destination was also far away from our stomping grounds. It was entirely possibly that we might have taken extra cash, given the paucity of banking options in that part of BFE. That's two of the tree conditions in this case. Thank goodness the government is there to protect us from the government.
You were on your own as soon as you could care for yourself. It worked for millions of years of evolution (6,000 if you don't believe in evolution), and it is only in the last ~150 that have we have had this belief. Maybe we need some A/B testing here to see which is better.
Nautical stuffs! Anchors! Boat things! They *must* be similar because they are about the Oooooocean and there can only be one beer about the Oooooocean sold in Canada. Duh. If Pacifico doesn't like it have them use one of the other 20 or 30 oceans.
for the most part, and I won't be blocking or filtering them since I like Techdirt. I even click on the ads and purchase things from time to time.
Generally speaking, I despise autoplay videos (especially that one that played every-damn-where for two weeks, never did find out what they were selling because I hate them with the heat of a thousand suns).
I dislike pages that Constantly Freaking Resize as ads are served. Hellooooo! I'm trying to read the words and you are moving them around the page like a crazed llama.
As long as Mike, Michael, Tim, Timothy, Karl, Leigh and (the sadly underrepresented) Glyn keep these abominations off of the page I'm cool. Keep up the good work.
covering the public buildings and people in public areas I am allowed to capture photons bouncing off of their shizzle and use it however I see fit. I also have the right to use those captured photons as I see it.
so RICO doesn't apply, but isn't there some sort of anti-collusion law up there? It seems extremely suspicious that all of these companies revoked their exceptions within two months. Let's send the execs to jail for a while, that'll loosen their jib.
