One issue is how do you tell the decryption process what to decrypt? There has to be some flag that says 'don't decrypt Aunt Millies pics' but decrypt this 'xxxxxxxx'Those flags are all that's necessary to start the process of breaking the encryption
you're implying that a private distribution is illegal by copyright. That's a pretty big stretch of current law isn't it?Not saying they wouldn't try it but it's a LOT harder to make that a winning argument.
Perhaps you've heard of lawyers. They tend to write in pretty expected situations into the agreement you signed to get the car in the first place.
Only the bottom type of plastic even mentions that it's number '7', which the others are is an exercise left to the reader.Obviously the first is 1, second 2, etc. but jeebus, using a link that says "these are what the numbers mean" without actually labeling the descriptions with the actual numbers?
This is EXACTLY the flag to rally around. We don't protect only those we agree with.
"because copyright was very, very different for the first 200 years of its existence in the US"The scope of it was different, but not the concept. It was shorter in duration and affected fewer works, but the proscription was still the same.

Eh I'd say it was about expectations. The Shuttle was supposed to be cheap and reusable. The Apollo craft were never intended as such.So when the Shuttle, instead of turn around times of weeks, became months and years at significant repeated expense, it doesn't meet the goals it was supposed to fulfill.It did amazing things but it was supposed to do that AND be cheap and reusable.
The moon is less about expense in my concept and more about proofing technologies in a place we can get back from quickly.If we can also generate resources from the moon, that's a big bonus.I've never understood the concept of proofing technology somewhere that's 2 years away from rescue.
Sounds the gov is missing the bigger picture. Compel Apple to work with Toyota to record all conversations and report back when they hear terrorists talking
To be fair, the oligarchy gets it's start early.One of my favorite questions for friends is 'do you know your state representatives?' invariably I get the answers of their US House reps.NOBODY knows people at the state level, let alone local levels. These people get to do basically cart blanche as they frequently even run unopposed.THAT's where this starts.
I still want Pizza!
"We need a way to prosecute any elected official that votes for such a measure"You mean like voting them out of office?
if we'd done this 10 years ago...wouldn't Snowden have been able to leak this 'golden key'? Then what?Obviously Snowden the actual person wouldn't have leaked the actual key but Alrich Ames certainly might have...When you have secrets, they WILL be revealed eventually if they are shared with anyone outside of your own mind.
is it not safety or is it the over-engineering regulations require for insurance against accident? which would be safety, no?
You know the signs that say "wifi for customers"? you aren't a customer forever. My local McDs has it clearly posted you get 30 minutes of usage with a purchase.
The comparison of airport security and the voluntary forfeiture of certain rights isn't even fair.The sacrifice of rights at the airport is to prevent a clear and present danger of the plane exploding or being hijacked.Despite 15 years of Gov't insinuation, there hasn't been anything close to clear and present danger that the data searches would qualify to sacrifice our rights.
Now would be a good time to ask Comcast or your overlord,err ISP, what their current MAX speed is so as to set your bar of what they are actually giving you...
"Homes should be designed to be easy for government snoops to enter without leaving a trace."I hear the TSA has this great universal key...should be easy enough to require all doors to use this lock too right?
