Something that always baffles me when people talk about the need to balance "security" with civil liberties is that they don't seem to realize that those civil liberties are what secures us (the people) against the government! Or at least, should do that.
Basically they are arguing for a "balance" between real security for the people (from the government) and security against an imaginary foe (terrorist, piracy or whatever it is this week) that have never had the power to do actual long-lasting harm against us.
Old McDonalds field? Seriously, I think the "field" here is "being human". While the actual technology behind it may be hella complex, the idea is brutually simple and straightforward, and since he claims he owns the IDEA (which I was of the impression you couldn't, but maybe that's just copyright?), it's obvious.
"Although they had been a fully disclosed non-issue upon her hiring, [...]" (regarding the videos).
"In a letter to the Vice President/General Manager of Comcast Sports Net Chicago, team chairman Rocky Wirtz demanded that reporter Susannah Collins be removed immediately, [...]" (regarding the complaints they received).

"it was to submit a complaint to google about websites that are posting lyrical content that is falsely described as Inspection 12 lyrics in order to sell ringtones."
As you say, the perjury part only applies to the claim that you own the copyright. But if you send notices against things that you admit you don't own the copyright on, then you ARE committing perjury.

Actually, all Hitler proved was that it's easy to increase the standard of living for some if you do it by stealing everything of value from someone else, and then use them as slaves. Who would have thought huh?
When I first heard about this lawsuit I got the impression that the difference between her real age and her stated age was closer to 15-20 years. While I can understand wanting to pretend to be under 30 for a while longer, by now those 7 years can't make that much difference, can they?
"[...] (and, one imagines, more likely to be blocked in those countries)."
Actually I'd say that they are LESS likely to be blocked. Google (Reader) is a HUGE target. If people using Google Reader start using different replacements, the result would be a big number of alternatives, which would be harder to keep up with for the censorship-happy morons.
