surely someone could organise a class action over copyright of the images , we may assign a right to the actual social media for use but not to Clearview but at least where I am since the mandatory face mask edict Clearview got diddy squat chance of identifying anyone
the really sad thing is that in the USA you need a law to stop that , and the sadder thing is that the likely hood of the new law being enforced is probably non existent and sadder again is that nobody is the least bit surprised that this is now the status quo of business
you don't feel nearly as smug when the stories are from your home , it seems that that good old five eyes acting with out a conscious these days
not to mention limiting Humvee's ability to sell Humvee's
At a time when the US government has shown its willingness to gut all but the most basic of consumer protections one has to worry if small steps like this are only the beginning and since the government does not have your back ( a large donation to the your political party of choice may alter your individual circumstances ) and don't think the courts will have your back either as the current administration has shown a propensity to want to appoint clearly unsuitable candidates that are there for life.
Indeed as the saying goes "it ain't over till the fat lady sings" but if as suspected the FCC do vote to remove net neutrality I'm actually looking forward to the ensuring court saga, as correct me if I am wrong but the truth matters in those legal places so we might actually get the real truth on the record. Meanwhile European firms learn how to compete in the real world and the once mighty US grow old and fat.
if Apple can stop external repairers with an error 53 all they need to do is tell the court that they tried but got an error 54 and sorry they need to buy a new device. But really if the best brains in US justice cant beat the security then of course all Apple have to say is No it can't be beaten and the fact they have to ask should already mean its pretty robust
Actually the one thing they did do is to get an innocent fan punished a fan that actually stood up and defended the indefensible , and they wonder why people have no respect , plus they handled this in such hamfisted way as I had a copy of the alleged offending picture posted to my Facebook and hate F$$king Star Wars and it was not removed .
seems interesting that the developers would assume that people are gaming a refund system , firstly people with no interest in paying very rarely actually pay and secondly if these people are gaming the system well there is a nifty new idea for a game and if they think adding DRM is going to help they really have not been paying attention
So this report basically says that what Snowden said is true , which in itself is quite interesting since I don't think the US government have actually accepted that fact yet and admits that he was a whistle blower in a roundabout way amazing that the government has to concede that they abused their power so kudos to the US for releasing this or were they so worried about future leaks and that it would get out anyway.
what I don't understand is where are all the black bars
welcome to Australia , all those are law , can't advertise , can't display , can't have logo's , all packaging covered in health warnings and graphic pictures of diseased body parts, but in a nanny state tobacco and cigarettes makes lots of taxes for the nannies so of course you can legally buy the stuff.
and don't get us started on the speed camera's , but at least one of our ISP's iinet stood up to big content and walked away from a voluntary 3 strikes agreement. So yes in Australia the nannies are well advanced but at least we still have one ISP standing up for us, you win some lose a lot.
