Sure it’s a very large merger but at the end of the day I don’t really care since it doesn’t impact anything of substance.
To you. If Microvision-Blizzard starts fucking with the AAA landscape, it'll affect a ton of people, both development companies and players.
You're projecting your contrarian nature again, Matty.
The FTC does not have the right to make these decisions
Don't worry, guys! Constitutional scholar extraordinaire, Bratty Matty, is here to show us the error of our ways!
Damn it, fucked up the post.
Media matters lied, in very material ways,
Then why does the lawsuit say that the reporting was factual and accurate?
and the defamation lawsuit has merit.
It's not a defamation lawsuit, and even if it were, no, it wouldn't.

That block quote doesn't say what you think it says, Matty.
But I'm not surprised that you yet again brilliantly display your complete lack of literacy.
You realize the main reason why they didn't before was so that they could censor?
Ockham's Razor, dumbass.
TechFilth likes to pretend that it supports free speech, but it does not
Then explain why morons like you, Matthew Bennett, koby, davec and Hyman Rosen are still around, you delusional dillweed.
“Liable”, not “guilty”, because it is a civil action between private parties, not a criminal trial enforced by government.
I was using it in the general sense, not the legal one. But nice try on getting a cheap win.
And the issue is when a platform disallows entire categories of speech, thus exerting editorial control.
I'm not surprised that you don't like when private platforms exercise their 1A rights.
If autocomplete were to typically write novel suggestions, then I suspect that it would not be useful at its intended purpose.
The main problem here is that the definition in the bill is so broad and vague as to be useless. What does "novel" mean in this context?
Strictly speaking, if your autocomplete has built-in AI and you do one of those "use autocomplete to write a sentence", you could write something that could easily be defined as "novel".
Hence the probability of covering autocomplete by the definition given.
So it autocorrected to “badger”. Misspelling isn’t novel output, but it can be unintentionally inappropriate.
Autocorrection also isn't the same as autocomplete.
I don't see anyone making that argument, but even if defamatory content was spread on a platform, the only guilty party would stil be the original speaker.
Why do you want there to be a middle-ground?
If the algorithmically generated content is substantially similar to the input, e.g. if you’re using an algorithm to summarize a web page, then it’s protected. If the content is something mostly new, and only based on a user prompt, e.g. most of what people are doing with LLMs, then it isn’t.
I just used an LLM to summarize "Flowers of Algernon". Where is your god now?
By wanting editorial decisions to not be protected under section 230, you want the government, by extension of the law, to intervene in the free speech of platforms.
And there's nothing about section 230 that's stopping anyone from suing for defamation. Section 230 just puts the onus on the actual speaker, instead of the platform carrying the speech.
And no, defamation lawsuits are not “the government”, that’s just the dumbest thing.
Well, defamation cases are almost always decided by a judge, which is, you know, a government employee.
But tell me again how facts are "just the dumbest thing".
Why do you want the government to meddle when it comes to free speech, Matthew? Aren't you usually in favour of free speech?
At the end of the day, they’re private companies and can do what they like.
Don’t like it? Make your own car.
Oh yes, trying to create a suitable replacement. The only solution to greedy business fuckery, as we all know.
Apart from, you know, just not giving in to the greedy business fuckery in the first place.
Google: Don't Be Evil Don't Be Principled
But it won’t, because tracking people isn’t going to cause mass harm.
China has entered the chat.
The more you keep spamming this bullshit in the comments, the more it sounds like you're trying to convince yourself of it rather than everyone else.
