So Apple was asked to license something they knew they used, and knew that other companies had paid to license. And knew that at least one other large tech company had lost a previous case for the same license and had to pay. Apple refuses to pay and uses it anyway. UW sues. And you accuse UW of being the patent troll. Could you suck Apple's **** a little bit harder?
It is very clear that the most dangerous 4-letter entities to America and American's Constitutional rights aren't some foreign band called ISIS or ISIL. No, the worst of the worst have the acronyms USTR, MPAA, and RIAA. If the US really wanted to advance freedom, it would direct drones on them.
Exactly. You can almost guess what 90% of the comments will be simply by the subject of the article being commented upon. Each site has a handful of the same people who spew garbage and ad hominem like projectile vomit. Wading through comments on sites like Yahoo News is the equivalent of watching some of the worst dregs of reality TV. Good riddance.
I can't tell if you're trolling or if you really are as f'ed up in the head as your ridiculous statements lead me to believe. If you are serious, then it is people like you that need to be put away for the protection of the rest of the world. You are the problem.
No, Anonymous COWARD, no matter how many times you try to claim this stupidity and ignorance is justified, it isn't. People like you need to be put away so you can't harm the rest of society any longer.
MPAA/RIAA are a far greater danger to freedom than any foreign terrorists. If there was real honesty in our justice system, both organizations and all of their top-level management would be facing RICO convictions.
So now we have a convenient list of spineless idiots who we no longer need to show any respect. These PEN writers who have signed this "protest" are craven cowards who mock the very idea of freedom of speech and are now actively patting the backs of the very terrorists who would murder masses of others because of their words.
"Of course we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law. But, you're not allowed to have that evidence proving we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law." -- MPAA
ITT: people who have absolutely no clue about employment law spouting off erroneous and ludicrous opinions about it. Mike has this correct. The Florida department ruled incorrectly, maybe they're as ignorant as many of the commenters here.
