What a nutbar! What an imbecile! What an ultra-maroon!
I'm sure you can find some ambulance chaser who'll sue Google for stalking you. What are you waiting for? Oh, wait. That'll wind up making yourself even more (in)famous.
Ah, do it anyway! What've you got to lose? It's not like anyone's ignorant of your shortcomings by now. Google's telling the whole world (and the aliens listening in) what you've been up to all along! Aiiiiee!!!
And all Simpson can do is pull his nostalgia gig about how things used to be different when people would forget your embarrassing things in the past. But that doesn't answer the question at all. It just makes Simpson seem totally out of touch with the modern world.
Actually, it makes me curious as to what in his past Simpson is hoping will stay hidden. What's he been up to, I wonder?
Being Autistic, I often focus on the details and lose sight of the bigger picture ...
So, you should get a pass to do that because you're autistic? You can hurl insults and ad hominems when you fail to read others' minds, but it's alright because you're autistic? Is that the kind of world you hope to bring about? Perhaps it's just that you lack self-control and it has nothing to do with autism.
Since when? Did he assign the copyright on his works to some other entity? No. You're an ass for believing he did.
You apparently hate artists and resent them having the right to do with their works what they choose, which is pretty odd to say the least for an imaginary property maximalist. Die screaming in a fire! The world would be a better, more civilized place if people like you weren't in it. You're little better than a thief, and nobody wants to suffer thieves.
... finding the file wherever Firefox chose to save it ...
Wouldn't that be the same place it always saves things? That's configurable via "Preferences". Or, do you have multiple devices where FF on each is configured to save things in different places? That'd be silly.
So you're saying the artist who created the work has no right to control what happens to his work? He wants to give his fans *the right* to do whatever they wish with his work. Exerting copyright on those works is the opposite of what he wants done with his works. No, you can't have it both ways! He retains copyright, and freely gives his works away to anyone who wants them. Assuming they then gain the right to lock them up is asinine.
This's not difficult to understand, though it's hard for some to understand things that affect their wallets.
I thought we were hoping for it to be enforced. Bogus takedowns are perjury! That's being ignored. That's wrong, and the perjurors should be brought to justice and punished. They shouldn't be getting a free pass through buying our elected representatives.
Of course they do. You fail to understand they're attempting to reshape reality according to their wishes. There's no misunderstanding here on their part. This is how propagandization works. Tell a lie often enough and maybe it'll drown out inconvenient truth. You waste your time trying to educate them. They've no intention of learning what you teach.
The thing that really matters is: "We cannot reveal [anything], because that would endanger sources, methods and intelligence operations."
The whole truth is that they consider those things are of primary importance and *we're not.* We get to pay for it, be inconvenienced by it, possibly even die for it, but it's not about us nor what we might want or consider important.
"Le e'tat, c'est moi." We're just the proles who finance their hobbies.
Silly, he's in Heaven playing patty-cake with the late, great J.C., laughing at the futility of the IRGC's malevolence, not to mention their thick-headedness in not realizing that his deity is the same as their deity, though named differently (Yahweh vs. Allah).
It's not just the intelligence community that does this. They're just going with the flow. Popehat's done a story on this ("http://popehat.com/2015/08/17/if-you-disagree-with-this-post-youre-joining-a-bullying-lynch-mob/") .
Courts shouldn't get to decide which features of your service are OK? Actually that's pretty much the core of what a court is for: deciding what is and what is not OK.
No they don't. Lawmakers do. Courts interpret those laws enforcing the will of lawmakers. Well, in theory, at least. It falls apart when neither the lawmakers nor courts understand what it is they're dealing with.
If TVEyes archiving and saving something is serving the public by ensuring that footage isn't lost, then would it not be even better if as many people as possible also had copies, should something happen to TVEyes' archives?
Even better, what does it matter where it's archived if it's already been determined that it's allowed to be archived? I suspect this is yet another case of a judge who only barely understands tech making distinctions based on his misunderstanding of it. After all, his assumption that everyone is always able to be connected via ubiquitous broadband is laughable, hilariously so.
Re: Re: Re: Re: little difference between major corporations and the government
They can't arrest me. They can't fine me. They can't close down my business. They can't take away my passport.
No, but they can have their buddies in the gov't do it for them. Cf. Kim Dotcom & Megaupload, DHS/ICE and MLB, ... You don't need to be a gov't to be a tyrant. You just need to warp your gov't towards fascism, and soon the distinction between gov't and their corporate buddies become nonexistent.
You assume we're governed by democracy. That hasn't been true for a while now.
No, lawyers, abetted by asinine laws from a boneheaded Congress, corrupt (eg. East Texas) courts, and misinformed corporate twits believing their imaginary property deserves to be fought for. :-P Who's next, Walmart, Wahlgreens, or maybe we should just start over and begin at "A" following through to "Z"?
How much did this silly mess cost, bottom line? Who lost money (and time & effort), who gained money (lawyers), and what does society gain from entrail stirring episodes like this? Multiply by how many times per year !@#$ like this happens.
So much static in the system, very much ado over nothing.
