It's not just the intelligence community that does this. They're just going with the flow. Popehat's done a story on this ("http://popehat.com/2015/08/17/if-you-disagree-with-this-post-youre-joining-a-bullying-lynch-mob/") .
Courts shouldn't get to decide which features of your service are OK? Actually that's pretty much the core of what a court is for: deciding what is and what is not OK.
No they don't. Lawmakers do. Courts interpret those laws enforcing the will of lawmakers. Well, in theory, at least. It falls apart when neither the lawmakers nor courts understand what it is they're dealing with.
If TVEyes archiving and saving something is serving the public by ensuring that footage isn't lost, then would it not be even better if as many people as possible also had copies, should something happen to TVEyes' archives?
Even better, what does it matter where it's archived if it's already been determined that it's allowed to be archived? I suspect this is yet another case of a judge who only barely understands tech making distinctions based on his misunderstanding of it. After all, his assumption that everyone is always able to be connected via ubiquitous broadband is laughable, hilariously so.
Re: Re: Re: Re: little difference between major corporations and the government
They can't arrest me. They can't fine me. They can't close down my business. They can't take away my passport.
No, but they can have their buddies in the gov't do it for them. Cf. Kim Dotcom & Megaupload, DHS/ICE and MLB, ... You don't need to be a gov't to be a tyrant. You just need to warp your gov't towards fascism, and soon the distinction between gov't and their corporate buddies become nonexistent.
You assume we're governed by democracy. That hasn't been true for a while now.
No, lawyers, abetted by asinine laws from a boneheaded Congress, corrupt (eg. East Texas) courts, and misinformed corporate twits believing their imaginary property deserves to be fought for. :-P Who's next, Walmart, Wahlgreens, or maybe we should just start over and begin at "A" following through to "Z"?
How much did this silly mess cost, bottom line? Who lost money (and time & effort), who gained money (lawyers), and what does society gain from entrail stirring episodes like this? Multiply by how many times per year !@#$ like this happens.
So much static in the system, very much ado over nothing.
AT&T has sent us a statement indicating that this was part of a limited trial ...
What's that have to do with anything? They most certainly were considering using it, and in fact used it even if in a limited trial. How many thousands of people per day use that airport finding them subject to this? How many third party web entities were illegally shouldered out of their rightful place by this bullying behavior?
When a department of a corporation does something, it's lying to say it was only the marketing department was trying something out and the rest of the corp. shouldn't be blamed (you know, left hand, right hand). The truth is the corporation was trying something out, and it was being handled by its marketing dept. The corp. is responsible for corp. policy and for all acts perpetrated by its divisions and employees.
"Payment Card Industry" (PCI) is supposed to set standards for businesses allowed to accept credit card payments. I did lots of work for clients who were terrified of the prospect of PCI de-certifying them. Every IT process the business was engaged in had to meet those "exacting standards" to continue.
How did Wyndham get away with this, even two times? PCI should have read them the riot act after the second intrusion, leading to a full network audit and compliance check.

...do people even use car radios anymore?
If it's strictly an AM/FM radio: NO.
Ah. I see the problem. Back in ancient times, autos came with car radios. Now, we have "onboard media entertainment interface systems" (ordinarily called a "stereo") which can also be used as replacement for those old style car radios.
I was beginning to wonder why I was seeing so many lovingly restored classic cars on the roads these days, far more than I used to see.
Anyone suggesting hockey isn't a violent game has never watched a hockey game. Perhaps they also missed the riot when Vancouver lost too. There's a joke about a person who went to a boxing match only to watch a hockey game break out for a reason.
That's unfair. The manual review fee should be $500. They can afford it, after all. ;)
And the takedown will occur during the next manual review takedown event which occurs *about* every six months, give or take six months or thereabouts, within reason, depending on how they feel at the time and whether they can spare the resources, not to mention any other considerations which may arise, which probably will.
Calling copyright infringement "stealing" is lying.
For all your willful attempts to avoid (and mangle) the truth, I've just awarded you a free "report" on each of them. You should feel honored. No really, you should. No, it's not censorship. It's my way of helping your posts stand out. This way, they're worth more than the others. Now, anyone who wants to read them has to explicitly click "show." They have to pay a "show" click in order to read them, all of them.
You're most welcome. I'm happy to oblige. Have a marvy day.
