The trouble with this idea is not really the idea.. This *could* be done just fine. Depending on the implementation, many of the problems that cause the current copyright system to be such a net drain *could* be fixed. The lack of accountability on the copyright holder, the ridiculous "damages" that can be awarded, the jurisdiction shopping.. The trouble is because we know the state of regulatory capture in this area, you can kindof predict that the details are going to make things worse instead of better
“Fair use” should be reoriented toward its original meaning.
Agreed! Bring back fair use! People are still getting roped into paying for copying stuff for Educational Purposes... Education Purposes for goodness sake! Transformative is hardly supposed to be the *only* way something can be fair use! It is very clear from the text that being transformative was only supposed to be one of many super vague, highly subjective and most importantly un-restrictive ways something can be considered fair use.
I would say this is mostly a non issue. People can (and should imho) find which games they want to buy using an independent source and just punch them into steam directly to buy them.
Steam needs some other updates to the core software far more urgently like some organizational tools for games you own, and steam chat needs work, it has serious bandwidth struggles. I actually wonder what they have been up to for the past... 10 years or so
Like everything else, the numbers are distorted by the media because you only hear about the incidents and you hear about them repeatedly.
If the FBI ran similar campaigns to pick the most troubled people from any other millions deep group and trick them into attacks and crimes, you would very likely see similar stats for the number of people who would take the bait.
This is not to say that there isn't an issue with people's islamic beliefs being manipulated, only that this isn't the only way to manipulate people.
The decision doesn't seem to even claim there was no entrapment, it says the entrapment doesn't matter because you can't say for sure he wasn't predisposed to commit the crime. It's basically saying predisposition is a crime in and of itself.
I'm a bit outside the young people demographic too, but The nice thing about reading on internet as opposed to other forms of news is it's good for multitasking. Reading something basically doesn't conflict with listening to your music, watching tv or videos, playing video games, etc. A couple audio video feeds running at once on your computer will fight with each other for your attention, but the text just politely sits in the background waiting for you when you feel like reading. If you don't want to actually give the news very much attention, it is much better off as a text/image article than a audio or video feed.
What makes something fake speaks to the motivation not the quality. Bad reporting is a problem, but it's not even close to the same problem as intentionally lying to people for power and profit. It's the different between negligence and a scam.
It was clear when they announced they were doing this that this would be the result, and the CRTC obviously knew it as well. I really don't see what the point is at all. There must be something else to this story. Why would CRTC pretend to crack down on cable companies anti-consumerism? That's what I want to know. They can't have expected anything different than what happened.. So why.
Yes exactly. Except for the lobbyists bribing part.. Unfortunately that still happens because they don't actually need us to buy from them, they bribe officials to get their money in other ways like levies and such, and then they also run essential services like phone and internet that people can't just do without.. So they just raise the prices (collectively of course, lets not be silly here) on those to compensate.
They are hiding it because they aren't going to be able to prove anything, if the election was hacked and the results affected, they aren't going to find a smoking gun, they are going to find a bunch of suspicious stuff that isn't going to accomplish anything except make more people pissed off.
Except quoting Trump is meaningless. Anything he has said he will have contradicted or soon will contradict. Here's another recent quote for you: "I am going to work very hard to repeal [Lyndon Johnson's] language and to protect free speech for all Americans."
So there you go, he's going to work very hard to protect all american's Freedom of speech. Nothing to worry about :)
