with a very low threshold of “having a reason to believe” that the right holder will be exposed to “a risk of loss”.
Rights holders have screamed that things that became beneficial and gave them record profits would cause them losses.
The only thing that want to listen to is imaginary dollars, and they are wasting more cash then they think they are losing buying the laws they think they need.
Imagine if people decided to stop consuming media to make a point. It is unlikely to happen, but perhaps the idea of someone being in prison for 10 yrs for having nabbed an episode of Game of Thrones might finally motivate people.
Imagine an opening weekend with no ticket sales. Imagine an album release with no sales. Imagine enough people saying fuck you to the cartels and the government they bought off, and cause them actual harm to the bottom line.
They are so focused on the imaginary dollars, they shit on the paying customers who keep taking it and ask for more. Its time to remind them that without those customers they have nothing. They force paying customers to sit through stupid warnings about don't steal this thing you paid us for... that we get to decided how, where, when you might be able to view because we control it all. The only people they end up punishing are paying customers... its time to end the Ike & Tina love affair.
I was just trying to raise awareness... So I outed his daughters life, sent him copies anonymously, oh and I put a picture of the girl up on my website implying she is now working as a lingerie model or something. I totally didn't use my access to the house to obtain the information in some sort of insane plot to get him to send his daughter away so she wouldn't steal any of his affection from me.
But now I must solicit paypal donations to put cash on the books so I can buy TP!!! Because a working journo has no actual money. I can't even afford to get SCOTUS to hear my case before I have to go to jail... feel bad for me. A 40 yr old who had to take out a child to feel better about herself.
We demand that cops use all the force allowed (and then some) to protect us from the bad guys... then are shocked when thats how they treat all people.
We give them military grade weapons, vehicles, armor, etc... yet no training how to deescalate situations.
We pin military award pins on some of them, even giving rewards to those who shot a 107 yr old man in his bed for protecting society.
We accept them tracking attacks on police with great detail, yet not supplying any information on use of force against citizens.
We accept them lying to 'suspects' but somehow have faith they would never cover their own asses with a lie.
Evidence vanishes, or mystically appears and some people can't accept that perhaps it was done purposely.
Not everyone has the same interactions with cops, and stupidly think they treat everyone the same.
They feel they don't need to answer our questions about 'missing' recordings and where that evidence vanished to.
There needs to be a change, and the Unions will fight it with every fiber of their being. Cops need to be held accountable to standards & the law. They need to face the same things regular people would face for the same actions.
Black men are not demons able to twitch and murder a cop, yet we have seen how prevalent that mindset is. That if you encounter a black male, they are an armed and dangerous suspect of something truly heinous who will get you if you don't get them first.
Or perhaps they understood that if boxes were suddenly open, people might like a box produced by Netflix. Native Netflix support, suggestions of shows based on content you watch, offering up all of the coolness that makes NetFlix NetFlix.
Instead they cut a deal to bring them into the walled garden, where they think they can keep some control with their super awesome new boxes operating systems that are still decades behind most of the cool features built into other platforms like Kodi and such...
The thing that no one wants to admit is that the biggest terrorists are the governments.
I don't worry that someone in 'arabic' dress will come running up with an AK-47 and murder me, I worry more that someone will execute someone in 'arabic' dress because the government told them to fear them because terrorism.
I don't worry that someone will get 8 oz of something onto a plane, I fear that a chemo patient who is tube fed will be assaulted by petty unchecked tyrants for my safety.
I don't worry I might come across a video promoting ISIL, I worry that someone who disagrees with the government will find their voice silenced because terrorism.
I don't worry that ISIL is using encrypted communications to somehow radicalize millions of Muslims in the US, I worry that the government will troll all of my communications looking for reasons to pull me in front of the Committee for UnAmerican Activities.
I don't worry ISIL will convince young people to take up arms, I worry our government keeps abusing these citizens because its 'popular' and will disenfranchise them from society as a whole leaving them vulnerable to those who point out this isn't right and lead them towards bad acts.
I don't fear ISIL, I fear the government. I don't fear Muslims, I fear the god-fearing red blooded american who takes his rage out on anyone who looks 'Muslim'.
I would hazard a guess that it was a Win10 install. MS is all about the cloud & accounts in the cloud and make it hard to create an account that isn't web based, its like 4 almost hidden tiny print clicks to make one.
"The prosecutor's office still refuses to comment"
Well that should go on their exit survey. It isn't nice to think about, and we all like to assume they are doing a heck of a job... but perhaps it is time to actually pay attention to what these people are doing.
The citizens should demand answers from the DA, ask why the ADA was given authority to threaten compliance or else, and how much money has been wasted in having them reviewing all of these things.
Perhaps it was an hugely ignorant step trying to avoid placing administrators in a position where they might have to use their own judgement and avoid upset parents... seems that worked out well.
"Superintendent Scott Oswald estimated that on some occasions over the last month, officers may have been called to as many as five incidents per day in the district of 1,875 students."
