He's talking about the ass kicking being self defense. Self defense is not only when the victim defends themselves it is also when someone else defends them against violence by stopping it in a reasonable and appropriate in the circumstances way.
Also the laws of Japan allow a LOT more 'reasonable force' than is currently in most other nations when the violence is being committed against a female.
The Time magazine article (linked) says that he was forced to leave Australia. Why wasn't he arrested, charged, and prosecuted? Surely there must exist ample evidence that he committed crimes under Australian law while on Australian soil.
He wasn't arrested nor charged with a criminal offense since his actions did not rise to the level of incitement.
Re: But to play devil's advocate (or is this the opposite? Now I'm confused.)
I gather with your warped and convoluted logic that you are now going to go to every church, mosque, temple, synagogue, prayer meet and have them all arrested as well.. Since they too spread words and philosophies that are INTENDED to make people fear.
While you are at it arrest every bureaucrat and politician.
Oh and YOURSELF since you make me afraid of the intelligent quotient of the human race if your one of it's shining examples of whatever the fuck you think you are.
Law-abiding citizens with nothing to hide have a perfect right to real privacy online
Sorry Glynn but this exact statement and the way it is worded is a part of the whole problem and is part of the fallacy that the people you are trying to say are in the wrong are using.
The correct phrase should be "EVERYBODY has a right to privacy online"
And whether you or others like it or not that everybody includes criminals, politicians, soldiers, parents, children, and even terrorists and even peadophiles. Since until due process is applied and those people are actually convicted and tried of a crime they are and still retain the same rights as everybody! In fact The right to privacy doesn't get extinguished after they are even convicted, nor should it.
Whatever you think... though like most people who have no idea between illegal and unlawful you are 100% wrong!
In the context of this article Copyright Infringement when under the jurisdiction of Australian law is NOT a criminal act unless it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the person(s) charged are using it for production and distribution in commercial quantities of TANGIBLE goods!
ie: the downloading of films, sounds, and other works by an individual even if constant and egregious cannot be classified as a criminal act (and this is also under the proposed TPP Glynn) unless that person then produces specific product for financial gain.
As for jail.. nope it's gaol here though it's extremely rare that even the criminal prosecution of commercial copyright infringers (there has only been a few) results in any period of incarceration and most likely results in a suspended sentence with a period of parole (or even just good behaviour)
Just because YOU and your agenda think something should be something doesn't mean it is no matter how much you jump up and down and act like a petulant child
highly politically explosive as well, though I think for them to say anything would be counter productive. Let the Spanish themselves figure out why Google has no Spanish Government sites listed and why Spanish Govt cannot access Google itself.
For Google to state reasons due to their problems with Spanish Law makes them seem too biased. Silence would be better I suspect in this matter and makes the Spanish legislature explain and be on the back foot.
"That like law the DNA database and rule set is available online for EVERYONE to peruse. This is because like laws DNA is a public resource open to all and owned by all.
This does not mean that every layperson understands or can practice law nor specifically give advice without specific ethical and legal guidelines to follow. BUt this does in no way mean that the layperson cannot research, analyse and come to their own conclusion (however wrong that might be) on the law."
To state that people are not equipped to handle the ramifications of what their DNA might or not tell them is to make out that people are inherently stupid and need your (or whatever nanny state you pick) guidance and authority to know what is good for them.
Comparing it to the manufacture of a weapon of mass destruction is telling not on how bad your analogies are but on how you think the rest of humanity should bow down to YOUR wishes because of reasons! *eyeroll*
O and nowhere in the article did it state that the whole of the human genome has been explored, it stated it was sequenced! A major difference, but then again lets not let facts get in the way of FUD shall we.

Filtering will not work.. been tried before and again the only way to stop this is to have ONE Keycode one access ability. Though it will make problems if people figure out the algorithm though that's always the prob as you stated with DRM
