And then you might think actors with the same surname might be related or something, since that is a common thing. Quelle horreur.
I always wonder what the upshot of some of the confusion is, unless someone is actively marketing a fake version of something as the original or really, really attempting to ride the coattails original product or service. Maybe their complaints departments get calls about crap that has nothing to do with them?
When MS has poorly architected separation of privileges and other security features that existed since before MS existed, you can go right ahead and argue that Windows is a hacking tool and hacking-ready platform which has allowed the installation (OK, encouraged the very creation, sometimes actively, with instructions and SDKs, of) very badly designed things and intentional malware as well.
The lawsuit claims that Gosling not only invented the cocktail,
This is not exactly congruent with the invention or the naming as shown in the story which somehow got Gosling the trademark originally. It doesn't make sense to me for now or when the mark was issued. Some guys mixed a drink with their rather unique ginger beer, and one made a nautical weather metaphor, therefore I invented this and should own the mark because... my rum. And also, therefore I invented this mix and the name.
Seems more like a case for some former sailors of the Royal Navy to own the mark.
And I guess Bulwer-Lytton (oh, retroactively, aside from posthumously)and a host of amused fair-users such as Charles Schultz (also posthumously) are in so much trouble.
Yes, Zero Tolerance and CYA mesh nicely with the ever expanding culture of proud ignorance / anti-knowledge / anti-factual all-opinions-deserve-equal-time and are to be held in the same regard as established facts, as well as the culture of fear we seem to enjoy so much and i guess missed terribly when the Cold War "ended". (Thank god for drugs and terrorism.)
Excepting that the telcos, and later the ISPs, have been receiving direct "taxes", and subsidies, and tax breaks for penetrating rural areas, which they pretty much still have not done. Nor do they follow through with promises for rural connectivity they make to states while securing preferred rights.
A little different than coffee. (Assuming Starbucks is an adequate choice for coffee in any corner of the universe.)
But President Obama decided “net neutrality” was good politics, so he demanded that the commission impose the most extreme form of regulation.
Get pumped! Come see it this Sunday Sunday Sunday! Right off Exit Eleventy-Four +7i, take the first left through the trans-dimesnional barrier because it is so Extreme, it's in a completely different universe.
It's just a more recent frontier of the Commons that business wants exclusive right to exploit at little or no cost, and sell you what they get out of it at a significant markup while externalizing all other costs and consequences. Treatment of employees and customers to taste.
Is someone really having this conversation? Hilarious.
That food humans burn? Carbon dioxide taken from the air to build biomass by primary producers in our food chains. We don't just create carbon ex nihilo. We aren't adding anything to the system by respiring.
