Except that the perjury charge would only apply if I was claiming that the work I wanted pulled down was either mine or that of a person I represent when it isn't. That's why I was careful to state that I'm neither J.K. Rowling nor her representative when getting an infringing copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone pulled from the Internet Archive (to prevent the site being shut down).
There is a case for discarding the term "rape" in order to free ourselves from this history. The only problem would be to find an alternative that conveys the same degree of seriousness. What about 'sexual contact without consent' for the cases without violence, and straight up 'sexual assault' for those cases where violence was used. Also, the terms I used would be the legal definitions so a woman can finally be charged if she sits on a drunk guy's dick.
This is why I highlight and search Elsevier article titles, just in case there's a better (exact same for free) version elsewhere. Sharp practice like this is so depressingly common that it's been necessary for all of my online life.
Dear Mr. Putin, I thank you for your invitation to the new social network you are interested in, but I must respectfully decline. You see, I have enough of a job on preventing others doxxing me without making their illegal task easier by laying out all my personal info on a plate, as it were. Yours sincerely, this Techdirt AC.
According to the Student Legal Services Operational Plan, Student Legal Services can only represent eligible students who have cases in or originating in Champaign County. Since the alleged cause of action occurred on my client's PC here in Champaign County...
He appeared confused about a tweet that said “The Premier hates Justin Bieber”. "Yeah, of course I hate Justin Bieber. Who doesn’t hate Justin Bieber?” Too bad, weepy teen Oh, what does it mean To be a diehard Belieber And not get the guy of your dreams
We have to get rid of Net Neutrality, otherwise self-driving cars will keep on crashing into each other. If the above were true, Rajeev Suri (which it isn't), then isn't promotion of Net Neutrality what's needed to ensure the fast signals that you believe are required for self-driving cars? FYI, self-driving cars use cameras, other sensors, and a self-contained computer to get around. If they're crashing, it's not because they can't access the Internet or because they've been hacked, it's because they weren't self-driving when the crash occurred (since laws in some areas don't allow them to be) and old-fashioned human error came into play. Simples!
Why not bring the picture over here to the UK since we don't believe in 'publicity rights'? The only offence is false endorsement because it amounts to passing off akin to trademark law, so as long as Mother Teresa isn't holding a can of Pepsi or a Snickers bar in the image, no problem.
In other words, anyone against massive, disproportionate surveillance is probably just some kind of dirty copyright thief. (Paraphrasing of George Brandis' argument.) Whereas in fact most of us aren't against data retention where the cops show up with a correctly formatted and signed warrant with all of its I's dotted and T's crossed, we're simply against the retention of all data for months and years on end on the slight off-chance that one of us is doing something illegal. Any properly conducted investigation would probably turn up reams more evidence against a criminal than any amount of data retention, so it shouldn't be allowed as a shortcut to justice since its so violative of privacy. Simples!
BlackBerry is already lobbying the FCC to force Apple and Netflix to offer apps for BlackBerry’s unpopular phones. Why do people feel the need to make up this shit? Maybe I should inform the Wall Street Journal that the reason BlackBerry devices are 'unpopular' is because they're unavailable. Seriously, the last time I saw one for sale, it was pre-owned, and I didn't want it because if it terminally glitched in the fourth month of ownership, there'd be nothing I could do unless I could find the receipt.
