If they try this bullshit, they should get sanctioned by the EU. They are already balancing on the edge, by acting like its the 18th century in some area instead of catch up. Stop trying to keep your citizens down and ignorant. I know knowledge is poison to your power, but that's because you are using a stick instead of a carrot.
Yeah, I was thinking the same, that's the problem? It would be the same saying that Gamestop couldn't compete because game companies only sells digital directly from their own servers and so what? The middleman was not there first, the company who made the product was... Like the lice wouldn't be there without the dog.
Ahh, well I don't see that is a problem, it's their product, they can sell it to whoever they want to imo. I don't see how the dealerships can be entitled to the right of buy it.
I actually believe that the problem is that the dealerships can't buy the cars at engross prices, but have to pay the same price that Tesla sells the cars to the public, and that's what gets their tits in a twist.
Dealerships, get over it, you are a customer, nothing more, nothing else. You are not entitled to any special deals.
Wait, I might have missed something here, but what is the issue here? Is it that the company are not allowed to sell directly to the public, or that other cardealers are not allowed to sell their product? I don't see how the goverment can legally block a company from skipping the middle man, as long the middle man is still allowed to sell their products.
There is a difference between name calling and actually mark someone as a pedophile, and if it's just name calling, it's not defamation.
If the guy has said something like, "He is a pedophile, because he touch his kids." that's a whole lot different then "Fucking pedophile", which would be the same as calling someone a fruitcake. It doesn't mean they think the person is a pedophile or cake made of fruit, but just that they are a shithead, which I guess Johnny Doc is refereed as.
I don't see how they can do this, isn't this in conflict of the rules for getting your apps accepted on the market? This is a seriously underhand way of controlling the ratings, and is almost onpair of just hiring people to leave positive votes.
I still don't understand how and why anyone would go along with at least half of those examination, that is just fucked. I know some people would say "Oh you talk big, but you would go along as well." but hell no, seriously... surgery??? No fucking way I would EVER accept that without a lawyer present and a court order. That's just insane. Not even the repeated enema. I hope seriously hope that the involved people will get fired and at least that they reject the settlement and they will go to court, because this shit gotta stop.
Agreed, american agency has NOTHING to do in another country, even if there is an american involved. They might get invited to help, but they should not except to just step in if they want to, just because one from their country is involved.
Do they want Egypt to get involved in investigations in the US, because an Egyptian tourist might have been involved?
"no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties."
Wohoo, wait a minute, so that means that doctors, tele companies and so on can just give out information to anyone? He gave that information voluntarily. Or maybe, that paid off judge should get off the chair and start ruling according to the full facts instead of the biased vallet.
Yeah, it reminds me about the shop that wanted to stop people window shopping and then buy it online, and then started to demand entry fee for people to enter the shop, which they would get back if they bought something, but not if they didn't. Talking about shooting yourself in the foot. Instead of trying to get with the times, they try to force people to buy from them. Yeah, no thanks.
Bullshit, its a scam. That's how the scam works, write a description with details that can be misunderstood, and make use of the hype of the product, to scam someone to buy their fake product. A very simple telltale is the price, you cannot defend the price of 500$ for a picture of a Xbox One. It's not anything unique or rare enough for that price. That price is there to give credibility to the scam.
The problem is that with this you also agree with MPAA that if a person share a pirated CD, he should pay 100.000 $ in damage, and that is still insane, just to "teach everyone else". It's bullshit and doesn't work.
The problem is that they can claim monopoly on the 'fuel'. Today, we can choose which gas station we want to use to get our fuel, but with what they are trying to go 'Apple', and force people to only use their own equipment. And even if someone else create better batteries which can keep the charge better or something like that, you won't be allowed to do it.
That's what would happen if they are allowed to lock your car (which you have bought and own) to only use their batteries.
