The ground in Nashville is not well suited to burying utility lines. It is mostly karst and shallow limestone so you're basically having to cut through a lot of rock to do it. Very slow and exceedingly expensive. Nashville is also a rather large city, geographically speaking, about 525 sq mi (1350 sq km). A few areas, mostly newer subdivisions, do have below ground lines for power, phone etc but they're the exception rather than the rule.
Actually, the majority of the poles in Nashville ARE already owned by the local government via Nashville Electric Service. The property that AT&T is complaining about them seizing is (presumably) the AT&T lines that are being moved.
Except that if you bothered to read the ZDNet article that was linked (especially with the updated statement from Lenovo) it becomes a lot more obvious that MS had nothing to do with it. If you didn't want to read that it was also posted in the comments above.
Punishments for what? Releasing new hardware that doesn't have a driver for every OS? That's going to cut down a lot on new hardware being developed since it will have to maintain that backwards compatibility.
...it's likely that no one would really make the connection that she is even related to the guy making beer. But now there are going to be quite a few Google hits where her name is now linked to the brewery. Good job!
People don't place Pokemon, they're procedurally generated using an algorithm and they're not permanent. Pokestops/Gyms are permanent but people can't add those either, they were all pulled from locations players submitted for Ingress.
My guess would be that like most personal injury lawyers they are working for free in hopes of getting a cut of any eventual winnings. It's usually a third so the law firm would get $333 million, quite a nice payday.
Hard to say for certain but the verbiage, "...DEFINING A "CLASS A" MULTIPLE DWELLING AS A MULTIPLE DWELLING THAT IS OCCUPIED FOR PERMANENT RESIDENCE PURPOSES..." would suggest that houses would be excluded and this would only apply to apartment buildings. People who live in a house would still be free to rent it out. Not that it makes it a whole lot better but best to be accurate if you want your arguments to be taken seriously.
Assuming that by "here" you mean the United States, libraries already routinely lend e-books out. They're time limited so that they stop working after a couple of weeks but you can check them out an additional time, just like a dead tree version.
The irrevocable license has equivalent results. The user was the owner of the copyright at the time he posted it. He provided the site with an irrevocable license in good faith. When you buy an asset (like copyright or a company or whatever), you are still bound by any contracts relating to it.
Basically, if the Duchouquettes win their motion (and they almost certainly will), they must be awarded court costs, legal fees AND additional damages such that justice is served. I suspect the bigger your pockets the more you're going to have to pay to make sure that it hurts. From the site above:
If you prevail, in whole or in part, in your motion to dismiss under the Citizens Participation Act, the court "shall" award you "court costs, reasonable attorney's fees, and other expenses. . . as justice and equity may require." The court "shall" further award you damages from the plaintiff "sufficient to deter the party who brought the legal action from bringing similar actions." In short, the court will tailor your total monetary award to suit both your costs and the specific attributes of the individual plaintiff.
