Remember back in 2000 - not 2008, but 2000 - when McCain was still his own man? Anyone running for office as a Republican was given what was essentially a loyalty oath, stipulating that they would support George W. Bush in the forthcoming primaries exclusively, and not McCain, and if they didn't agree, the Party would withhold its financing from their election bid.
Good thing the primaries weren't rigged though. Unlike this year when even the guy WON the RNC primaries says that they were rigged.
If you think intellectual property can do no wrong, this book is definitely for you.
This is demonstrated by the fact that the author or anyone reviewing or discussing their book could be sued simply for using "stealthis" in a URL.
"Intellectual property entrepreneur" Leo Stoller claims a trademark on "stealth", among many other terms. And has sued companies for the term "stealth" whether in sporting goods, fishing line, movies about stealth aircraft, banking, etc. That includes legal threats to stealthisemail.com - with the claim that their address as "stealth is email," not "steal this email."
(Sure, the court eventually approved an auction and sale under which Stoller's trademark assets were transferred to the Society for the Prevention of Trademark Abuse, LLC. But that hasn't stopped him from continuing to claim trademark rights on the term. And people are still out money and time fighting off trademark trolls - IF they can afford to fight back.)
So far, everyone involved has refused to discuss the illegal seizure of Muflahi's recording equipment,
Is it illegal?
A couple years ago (in Canada) someone moving out of my apartment block left a mattress behind outside. That night some kids set it on fire. The new caretaker had been told that I knew how to work the cameras.
It's amazing how when the police knock on your door, you KNOW it's the police even when you have no reason to expect them.
Apparently if I hadn't been able to save the video to a flash drive for them, they would have taken the entire camera recording system.
One could admit it was a mistake, but that doesn't seem to be in Carl David Ceder's nature.
Nope. He had the opportunity to pass it off as a mistake. But he responded in the comments to Scott Greenfield's original post just to dig himself in deeper. And he kept digging. And digging. And digging. It's his own words that do the real damage, not Greenfield's post.
Polish authorities have requested British law enforcement to interrogate the node operator because of a 2014 forum post supposedly insulting the ex-mayor of a small Polish town; apparently an illegal act in Poland.
The Apple II manual came with a fold-out schematic of the motherboard. I had it hanging on my wall as a poster.
The Apple II motherboard even came with a small prototyping area so that you could create your own add-on circuits. (The image on the right is a later revision of the motherboard - the prototyping area is smaller after Apple added more features.)
Imagine how much more successful Apple would have been if they didn't do this.
Judging by how the copyright trolls are operating in Canada:
That "lead defendant" will probably be a senior in an old folks' home who has never heard of the BitTorrent let alone the movies in question, but received a random "notice and notice" claim and was scared into responding to it.
The helium is used to maintain the pressure in the tanks as the fuel drains out. Helium is of course very light, which saves weight. Its lower density stops it from mixing with the fuel. (You REALLY don't want bubbles in the fuel being fed into your engines.) And being inert it doesn't react with the fuel.
But not this SLS. SLS Block 2 is the Saturn-V-class launcher for the Mars missions. It's planned for some time in the 2030s and would have a new generation of engines on the first stage, a different second stage, and even the SRBs they're testing now would be replaced.
Development costs for a rocket like SLS are massive. The key is to amortize those costs over many launches.
SLS Block 1 has one (1) launch planned: The initial test launch.
SLS Block 1a (different upper stage) has two (2) launches planned: Europa Clipper and the first manned test.
As I understand it, IP address spoofing wouldn't work in this case. Any return packets - the movie you're trying to download - would be sent to the real owner of that IP address. Spoofing is only good for one-way communication. Denial of service attacks, spamming, etc.
Having said that, no, an IP address mean nothing. A friend here in Canada recently received an infringement notice for downloading a torrent of "Sword of Shannara" in the middle of the night.
He's 90 years old, living in a retirement home, and had never heard of bittorrent let alone "Sword of Shannara." He has a single PC connected to his cable modem, no WiFi, no bittorrent client on his computer and no malware detected. There's no possibility that the IP address claim was correct.
Hillary was in office immediately after Bush II left office. And even she left office several years ago. It's interesting how you specific you are about the statute of limitations: No more than 7.5 years and no less than 3.5 years.
Nor does that cover Jeb!'s use of his own server, nor the folks in Congress who use their aides' private accounts instead. Jeb was in the same political race as Hillary only a few months ago. Some of those folks in Congress are still in office.
Yes, the whole "they did it too" is childish. But "it's only illegal when they do it" is even worse.
