I fail to see why an artists derivative works "licensing" their other creative works after they are dead offers anything of value to society at all. It's simply an argument that "someone should be paid".
Any law that places criminal determination on the subjective opinion of a third party being offended is problematic. It is impossible to abide by the law other than foregoing speech altogether. It is also the perfect weapon to return fire on the idiots who created it.
Depends what your target is: - if it is justice, then it is not detrimental - if it is maximising "guilty" pleas and verdicts then it is detrimental Now, the court system is meant to be the former, not the latter.
If the only viable option is to reject CETA entirely, its an outcome I for one would welcome. These "Trade Deals" are generally corporate wishlists that do little for the benefit of the people in these countries, and impose substantial costs on them, often by dismantling social and environmental protections.
These corporates have little interest the value of the deal to the trading countries - just to themselves, so it should be no surprise that they add little if any value.
If a few more go the way of SOPA, then just maybe a more reasonable negotiation style may come about - one that includes the people.
I take it as read that these agencies have free reign to hack into anyone elses computer (including the accused, and have probably done so) without fear of prosecution. I wonder how the irony is lot on them.
