"Just wait until all the bio-metric data being kept gets breached. "
I'm pretty sure Uber gets the results of the background checks, not the raw biometric data itself. There are plenty of jobs that require criminal background checks, and yes, I have been through that process.
"I think it's admirable for Lyft and Uber to stand for their contractors privacy. "
This was never about employee privacy. It's always been about Uber wanting the cheapest labor possible.
After all, he or she took a picture of a (presumably) underage boy's penis and then distributed it.
Whomever is in charge of printing and handing out the programs and fliers should be prosecuted for distributing child pornography.
Meanwhile, the "victims" of this "crime" never reported the incident, or possibly even noticed. This is like saying "we're all naked under our clothes" and then prosecuting us all for indecent exposure....

PETA's goal is animal rights, not copyright maximalism
PETA is not seeking to extend copyright, they are attempt to extend animal rights.
PETA is a strange animal, if you'll excuse the language. Unlike, say, ASPCA, they are not really concerned about the welfare of animals; rather, they are concerned about whether animals should have legal rights.
I doubt PETA understands what copyright even is... They just want a monkey to "own" "intellectual property."
