If it doesn't already exist, I'm coining a new phrase: "Corporate Narcissism." It's what makes corporations unable to see how anything they do could possibly be wrong, or viewed as wrong by a sane person.
It should be politically dangerous to accept money from the cable cartel. As bad as taking money from known mobsters. People who want to have a free internet and reasonable prices for access need to commit to publicly shaming any politician at any level who accepts those funds.
It seems to me its not so bad that getting tied to a FBI list of possibly dangerous people means you can't buy a gun. It's that you can't get off the list without dying first.
That to me seems to be the thing we should be looking at. If you could go to a court and have the FBI/CIA/NSA/Facebook present their evidence against you and contest it, I think it'd be a pretty good plan.
I think what the OP on this comment was trying to say was that no judge will ever throw out a case because of fair use. You can use it, but you may get sued. And the ones suing you have deeper pockets than you.
I don't mean just telling these companies that they have to be "opt in", because people usually need access to what they have, and everyone will be doing it. So unless you become Amish, you're going to have to opt in.
No, I think it's time we pass some laws that say "No, you can't just record everything someone does 24/7 unless you provide regular details to that person on what was recorded, and with whom you shared that info."
