I made that same mistake at first. Fortunately in the article the month gets mentioned in alphanumeric too.
oh dear now I read nosey smurf agency everywhere I see the NSA acronym...and laughing out loud as a results. My colleagues will be so annoyed :)
They should make a movie out of this.
I am from the Netherlands, and this is entirely from the Buma/Stemra organization. The radio stations to whom the website links are actively cooperating in the apparent illegal linking, even up to the point to pro-actively sending out email notifications to all radio portals when the link to their stream changes. (or at least, that's what I understood from the verdict and the news surrounding it).
We don't get it either. But out hopes are set for the appeal.
I have to admit this article makes me think of my mother and grandmother, who taught me that it was _very_ impolite and intrusive to share one's telephone number without asking permission first. Despite the telephone number being listed in the yellow pages (or whatever colour your telephone book pages are).
I'm not really sure she's wrong. I guess I really need to think about this one. Which is a plus-one to techdirt of course. Making people think.
Let me see if I understand this correctly: Mr. Khanna is being sacked for showing common sense and proving to have normal functional brains?
Well, at least he had the nerve to actually speak up. I hope his future will be good.
As far as I know it's mostly about the "right to make a mistake". The problem with not forgetting anything, is that your mistakes will haunt you for the rest of your life.
Even though you have learned from those mistakes.
I think you'll see the problems when you are automatically tagged in a photo of one of your friends. Your friend has a public profile. Your employer sees that photo, decides that he doesn't like (for whatever reason) and kicks you out.
And yes, things like that do happen. Job experts are telling us to be real careful with photos and all, and that's not for naught.
