Yep, this is the point I was trying to make above.
Also, in the case of schools, they will often do a play like this in conjunction with reading it in an English class. I doubt the teachers are going to be thrilled with putting on the new show, which apparently deviates significantly from the original source material.
True, but don't statutory damage awards (which they threatened) require proof of financial harm? I thought it did, anyway, but freely admit I may be misunderstanding since I'm not a law expert.
I fail to even understand what the point is. Is he using some sort of warped logic that John from Podunk, Idaho who went to see a production near Boise somehow represents a lost sale? Where exactly is the actual harm?
I was going to say I can't believe this is devolving into an argument over semantics, but then I remembered the FCC's entire case seems to be predicated on 'telecommunications' vs. 'information service.'
Pretty sure you're confusing hate speech with a hate crime.
So, if congress doesn't believe there's a first amendment problem with this, I wonder if they'll argue it's because it is aimed at corporations instead of individuals. That would throw a monkey wrench into the net neutrality debate.
So, possibly a stupid question, but for those of us who aren't super technical:
Let's say, in addition to turning off anything 'smart' in the menu options, I block my tv at the router level from accessing the net - does this help anything? Or are all of these exploits beyond my ability to mitigate? I'd avoid 'smart' altogether if finding 'dumb' wasn't becoming almost impossible.
Nah, just the alt-right ministry of alt-facts Conway/Bannon/Spicer triumvirate. Trump always has to do things bigger.
It certainly would explain why the majority of comments I see on mainstream sites these days contain:
A. It's Obama's fault/he's the evil one/etc! B. It's Clinton's (either one or both) fault/(s)he's the evil one/etc! C. Shut up libtard/special snowflake/etc! You lost! Get over it! D. Trump's done more in a week than Obama did in 8 years! E. Fake news! F. We're making America great again! G. All of the above!
Maybe it's time to fight fire with fire here in the U.S. and start our own comment army.
