There have been hundreds of suits against farmers who had a crop cross-pollinate with neighboring GMO crops. They were subsequently sued for Patent violation - and have WON, destroying many farmer's lives.
Hopefully, this will stick and all GMO seeds will no longer be patented and the world will be a better place for bad companies with not enough to do!
Sure, Glenn Beck is an ass monkey.
Sure, the domain registration does violate his trademark.
Sure, we have a first amendment.
Let's hope the "parody site" operator knows and understands his rights - and responds properly.
If not, it'll be gone.
Either way - the whole story and it's ongoing spread - is just sleazy.
Amazon owns a print-on-demand service company. Basically, they used to accept books for listing for several POD companies, then they said, "Um, we gotta protect all our revenue streams, so let's force 'em to use our service."
The fourth Amendment, huh? Well, with our current Administration all that is up for question you know. At least the DOJ, CIA, et al. were enjoined from issuing any more National Security Letters this week.
Police do use thermal imagery for 'hot spot' detection. Instead of using that sole evidence - which may or may not be violating your rights - they simply go to the electric company and find out what your bill is.
No matter how much you want to use - if you have a grow room lit up - it will make a huge difference. That's why most people steal the power from others, esp. commercial establishment.
I am not surprised whatsoever that this fatalities are happening in the UK -- probably the world over -- as people rely more on GPS devices. People I know use them in areas where they are well aware where they are going - why?
Don't be afraid people... use an unlocked phone, it's all the rage to be a rebel and use an unlocked phone that's 'not supported' by the network- give me a break! I've been using unlocked phones for 5 years without a hitch. Consumers just need educated - and many will miss not being able to call in a 'damaged' unit for replacement or after loss.
As to net neutrality, the line needs drawn to allow consumers full access to all the net has to offer - no matter how that access is provided. Cellular carriers will find WiFi and/or WiMax a tangible alternative for others in the coming years as more and more cities become blanketed with wireless. VOIP is a major threat - because there will be someone who will put up wifi as much as we have GSM coverage at least - eventually.
C'mon you guys! As long as these blood-thirsty, wealth inspired people continue to have a burning passion to accumulate all the wealth they possibly can until they are bulging with satisfaction, how could we ever have enough checks and balances to stop them?
The only advertisers that are getting any action are those offering FREE HP Notebooks and other "FREE" offers that kids complete 10 offers they really don't want, then cancel so they can get some gift.
Wow, that is great advertising!
The rest, does anyone really see?
The sheep are the advertisers who don't need a positive ROI on their campaign.
