Why, exactly, are "Public Data" and "User Generated Content" completely separated from "consumers"? Hell some of the most popular sites on the internet are where the sites themselves are nothing but platforms for the consumers to post their own content and share it around(facebook, youtube, tumblr, ect, ect). Excluding any other mistakes that mistake alone is egregious enough to make this "chart" have no credibility because it shows no understanding of how the current internet world works.
I honestly believe it is not in the tax payer's best interest to automatically fine the Department for misuse of the database by cops. Think of the abuse one cop could do if they purposefully tried to get the department fined. No, the REAL answer is to automatically fine the OFFICERS directly who willfully pull somebody's records. Most of those cops who get said written reprimand won't care, but if you suddenly slap them with a $2.5-5k fine coming directly out of THEIR pockets...that is wake up call that they will remember and share back around to others.
if GoldieBlox had straight taken the original source music, added a word to the front, THEN sold it as a new song it would be a very different story than them completely remaking the song to sell a product not in the same market as the parody. I mean, please explain to me how GoldieBlox's commercial would possibly cause "brand confusion" for people looking to buy a beastie boys album.
Lets even give him his $300 per phone. Who decides where that money goes? Music industry, movie industry, video game industry, book industry...ect ect I mean who and how do they decide whom gets said money? Do we randomly assign money to the big players and then the artists get basically nothing? Do you spread it out evenly based on general popularity so each artist gets a fraction of a penny per phone? Or do you want to go NSA style and root through people's phones to see what media they have on it? Did this bozo even think his plan all the way through to see what the real world implications were?
After some more thinking, exactly how did these "rouge" IT groups ever exist? If you go to any of our network ports you can't just plug in a computer and have it connect to the network. You MUST be on the domain with all the right proxy settings and other items.
They IT staff really must have been incompetent for the shadow IT groups to even have a capability to get off the ground.
I worked for the Air Force for a while, and I never once saw anything remotely this bad at the base I worked at. They actually did a good job of security. We had card keys that MUST be plugged into the machine to work, and when you unplugged them the computers auto-locked. Not to mention to open basically any door you also needed said key card, so very very few computers were ever left unlocked. I just wonder how the Armed Forces fared for said IT audit.
even IF they decided to go that route, it ultimately wouldn't do anything other than block non-infringing content. Legitimate people would get blocked and the pirates would just find a way to make their content just ever so slightly different so as not to get pinged by that "matching content". It is a never ending battle that the pirates always seem to win at the cost of normal people's enjoyment.
I think if Google wanted to make a statement they easily could. Just block all UK traffic to their site and claim their government is making it too hard to do business in their country even though somehow the rest of the world doesn't have a problem with it. Let the UK people use Bing for a week before calling for the MP's head to back off Google.
I would need some serious proof of that. I find that completely unbelievable. Not from the "they would do that" perspective, but from the "they are competent enough to ACTUALLY do that" perspective. I mean our government is rather inept at handling construction contracts. You are telling me they formed a contract, hired a crew, and got materials/people all on site within 24 hours?
They still very much push Certs DannyB. Want to be a Database admin? better have some type of cert. Want to be any type of network engineer? The Cisco systems cert/training is all but mandated by all(and that training/cert is about $10k base line) Hell the base line entry level tech job at my place requires a bachelors degree OR an associates with A+ or other certs. Maybe some of the BS certs have been pushed aside, but just go browse a few job listing cites and you will see them asking for all sorts of different certs still.
I am not really sure what the word "liberal" really has to do with a news organization getting the details of a story wrong in that manner. Unless you are stating it is their agenda to skew said details, which you would be hard pressed to prove in this instance.
Not to mention you straight up can't read.
third paragraph Google paid $12.5 billion for Motorola in 2012. Under this deal the search giant will keep the majority of Motorola's mobile patents, considered its prize assets.
Maybe your conservative eyes need better conservative glasses. That or your conservative glasses are working just fine making enemies where there aren't any.
isn't stuff like this exactly what Libertarians say WOULDN'T happen in a pure and free economy? If we didn't have any centralized group controlling things, problems like this would be even more wide spread with maybe little chance of catching them. People are greedy assholes who will suck at the overly large teet of the government. Because they can get away with it. I still stand by the statement that the inherent size of "our" government isn't inherently the problem. The problem comes from the complete lack of accountability at basically every level. Act like this is a big news story(which is very well should be) but in a week this will be replaced with Biber getting prole, the next Zimmerman, or the Super Bowl. There is no accountability because we the people as a whole don't ask for it. That is the biggest shame of them all.
The GOP has been on SO many "wrong sides" of major political issues from the public side recently that I am almost shocked they are not here as well. Maybe this is the starting point for them actually listening to actual citizens for once...
I'll never understand what makes some people and organizations freak out when users of their systems make better versions.
loss of control. I work for government agency. I see stuff like that. People can't directly gain "control" over others like they can in private industry, so they use other methods to. This is just one of many.
You can point to the NYPD as out of their mind on. But at least with this you can't blame them for trying. I mean the FBI is just too busy these days drumming up fake terrorist plots to get more funding to actually share real intel with local agencies.
