I kinda hope Google / Bing / Openstreetmap Blacks out NH. Right along the border just complete blackout.
Then just wait till the law is repealed.
Yea the problem is not whether app makes should get the information, just how.
As a google user I share my data with GOOGLE, I should have to give consent for them to share that with a 3rd party.
If a developer wants to know more about their buyers, require in-app registration. Then it is very transparent where the personally identifiable information is going.
Well I was referring to "Better" as less porous (more in line with big-wig's interpretation of the internet) vs 'better' from user's point of view.
I should have read the next sentence before commenting.. my bad.
"I'd really, really, really like to see MacArthur produce a little evidence to back up his claim that Google gives priority to "free content" sites over those with paywalls. "
probably pretty easy since the better the pay wall the harder it is for google to crawl...
Did you even read the article? it has nothing to do with DRM.
There will be downturn on Whinny and Share, but similar increases in other filesharing software
"does that make either of us pirates?"
That depends, do either your friend or yourself wear an eyepatch?
But "legally-speaking" US Govt are not going to use DMCA...
They will just say "this is a matter of National Security.... We're taking your personal computer, any computer on campus that may contain a portion of the streamed clip in their cache, and just because we can, all the YouTube Servers as a punishment for your heinous crimes."
your probably right, but that's the terminology the architecture professors used who were about as far from lawyers as you could get.
Don't really know, Google aquired it from @Last software to bolster it's 3D buildings in maps/earth. It was just sold to Trimble this year, but there are thousands of profressionals (We use it at my office now for final renderings), We have the paid version in my office which allows higher resolution outputs, but I know others that just use the free version.
I think my school primarily told us they owned everything so they could keep work for accreditation purposes without students crying foul (every 2-6 years depending on how well you scored), as any work they kept they typically gave you a 2 week window to pick up after an accreditation cycle (which was problematic because if they decided to keep your thesis work, you could be 5 years out of school and moved across the country and you had 2 weeks to arrange pick up of your best work before it hit a 40 yard dumpster outside).
Most of my work was created on my system with either free software (google sketchup), free educational versions from autodesk, or other versions not provided by the school. (although plotted on their printers), or Hand drafted with my own tools (albeit on their desk).
I went to school for architecture and everything I did in school was considered "work for hire" and was property of the school (even though I was paying them to be there).
Google is pretty good at this game... Just like in European countries where it has to blur faces in street view, but won't cave to privacy activists here...
Or Censoring search results in China, but not the US...
I would be surprised if Comcast or Verizon got anywhere with a "But you do it in a third world country" argument...
You idiot! Why would you nominate Chrome to some MAFIAA Hit list... Always, in Every Case, Nominate Internet Exploder for death before any other browser.
I am a little surprised that this hasn't really happened yet, because it is value I could see myself paying for, but why havn't more websites offered "Ad Free" paywall solutions, similar to mobile apps, spotify, etc. It'd be interesting to know how much you would have to pay a website to remove the ads per user. If I could pay $5 to $12 bucks for a year of ad-free techdirt, I probably would.
Mike if your reading this, what would you have to charge to do something like this?
Regardless if they decide to end their own life or not they know that their LEGACY will live on (forever in google's archives). And that in their mentally deranged mind they know they WILL receive the attention, being dead is just a side-effect, one that they are okay with.
These horrible outbreaks of violence is as simple as Dog Training. If we Stopped giving attention to kids who do bad things, the kids will realize that bad things don't get recognition / attention they seek and won't do them.
When someone kills enough people They get facebook campaigns, National Media coverage, people who were there are interviewed on the TODAY show, there are special interruptions into primetime TV, and the president will make a heart-felt announcement about the event.
Now Re-read that paragraph starting from "They get".... I cannot think of how we could reward bad behavior anymore than we already do. This is like giving your dog a slab of bacon for pooping on your floor. I just do not get it. You want to stop horrible mass shootings, stop rewarding them. Lock them away (if they survive) and never speak about them again.
People wronged by this want to file a lawsuit, but they forgot what it is called, and no longer trust their dictionary app to research it for them.
People are re-routing around the 'damage' the re-route involved moving to systems obfustication and encrypted systems in the "Deep Web" (see This article )
People who want a simple solution (and not as worried about remaining anonymous) are using newsgroups as new programs have popped up to simplify searching, downloading, and merging files.
Piracy hasn't stopped or slowed. Mega is re-routing by relocating to me.ga, changing servers, and getting the damage (read "USA") out of their pipeline.
