Since I moved back to Urbana-Champaign, I keep seeing Champaign businesses on Techdirt. First it was that bus company that sues its customers, now it's this pizza place.
I have no idea why anyone would eat inferior pizza here, as we have some of the finest pizza establishments anywhere. Papa Del's, as mentioned above, is excellent, as is the newer, thinner Manolo's. But there are always some morons stumbling around Campustown. Maybe Drew's customers enjoy flashing more than they like good pizza.
Oh yeah, also the filings are encouraged by the Court to be bound together with a specific stitch: saddle stitch.
Actually "saddle stitched" just means "stapled." A saddle stitcher is just a long stapler; they were quite common in the pre-internet world of 20 years ago, when we made minicomics and 'zines instead of blogs.
As entertaining as her self-propelled train wreck might be to some, to me this looks like a mentally ill person having an episode of some sort. It's becoming more sad than funny. Mental heath care, people. We need functional mental health care in this country.
I remember that there was a plan to crowdfund the purchase of the worldwide license of the songs
I would never support such a plan. Raise good money for extortionists? They've already extorted $70,000 from me just to decriminalize the movie, they're not getting any more. Artists and innovators deserve money, not extortionist rentiers.
There is no sound legal solution to automatic copyright without registration. CC-0 is the best I can do as a public promise not to sue, but unfortunately it's still a license, not real Public Domain. There is no real opt-out of copyright, which is just one of the many ways copyright law is broken.
As of a few minutes ago, the problem has been fixed (total time of blocked access: just over 24 hours). A FB communications person just emailed me:
I'm so sorry for the inconvenience caused, there was a temporary misconfiguration in our photo review systems which caused a very small subset of users to be incorrectly enrolled in one of our checkpoints. There was no issue with your original photo, we have a combination of automated and human-review systems dedicated to keeping people safe, and a bug caused one of these systems to incorrectly enroll a small number of users into checkpoints.
We have since remedied the issue, and remediated all affected accounts. Please let me know if you or others are still experiencing any difficulties.
