Wow, I didn't think cable television would die so soon.
(aereo will clearly win, as they literally aren't breaking any set-in-stone laws)
"If you don't understand English, you don't belong at the University of Illinois or any 'American' University,"
I kinda agree with that, but I'm 100% OK with said person as long as said person is at the very least making effort in learning the language.
Some publishers force the use of DRM I believe.
At the very least, the rules for fair use should be much better explained. There should be no reason to spend thousands just to find out if what you are doing is actually fair use.
And the land mines!
I learned about letters of marque from Bodacious space pirates anime. Great show.
(it's safe, no NSFW stuff, I think there was one female with tight suit at one point of the anime though)
I can't imagine it being possible to infringe on Vine. Fair Use should apply to everything no matter what on there.
Any bets on something in the copyright laws saying if first sale doesn't apply to it, copyright doesn't apply to it?...such a confusing web of laws.
I sadly saw something like this coming after the closure of Google Reader...
There is no guaranteed proof that "pirating" does any damage at all. There's no solid data to support these laws.
It would be nice if a new law didn't make most of the users of new technologies into instant-felons.
Here's what my Google Reader looked like- http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc140/Forest_GS/stylishpreviewgreengoogleRSS.jpg
Here's what my just-started Netvibes reader looks like- http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc140/Forest_GS/netvibes_zps5a9755bc.jpg
They look pretty similar to me, anyways.
The default is set to "show all", but it does "mark as read" while you scroll. To change it to "show New only" you need to click the "Change Display" button on the top-right. (hover the mouse over the button to see what the button is called)
Acts exactly like Google Reader for me now.
Thank you for posting about this. This development really put into question the dependability of ALL of google's services for me.
Breaking a digital lock just to enjoy a form of entertainment on a different device should never be illegal.
"doing a search explicitly for "pirate bay," not finding the actual site as a top result"
Something like that would just make me use a different search engine, one that actually gives me the searches I want.
We wouldn't need to worry about it as much IF copyright terms were reasonable in the first place.
TPB is no more dangerous, and very similar to a library. That's also one of the main reasons libraries are damaged by the rules minimalists want.
Or, like adults, ignore the monsters under the bed and say they aren't there.
A very interesting attempt at innovation from a different angle. I'm looking forward to the statistics.
Technically, you can use it on juice and koolaid to give it that soda fizz.
