Inside the AP's Plan To Security-Wrap Its News Content

Freetardo Jones Re:I thought Slashdot was filled with geeks (138 comments)

I did read the story which is how I know it's just making shit up. There is no DRM here or enforcement and as such the summary is a complete load of crap.

P2P Network Exposes Obama's Safehouse Location

Freetardo Jones Re:ban the man (307 comments)

It applies to contractor's computers too.

And? Any use of government property or information falls under whatever rules the government wants to set for its use.

You actually expect either the submitter or the editor to read the article instead of just mischaracterizing the story by just making shit up?

P2P Network Exposes Obama's Safehouse Location

Freetardo Jones Re:Encryption? (307 comments)

Even so, information is leaked by people, not P2P software.

But if they weren't able to run the P2P software in the first place it would have had a 0% chance of being leaked to Limewire.

Fair Use Defense Dismissed In SONY V. Tenenbaum

Freetardo Jones Re:Before the arguments start? (517 comments)

Copying (downloading) music for personal purposes is considered fair use in many if not all European countries.

That's great. Care to explain when Boston, Massachusetts became part of Europe?

US PTO Gives Microsoft Credit For Lotus's Homework

Freetardo Jones Re:that's not why the US patent system is broken (172 comments)

So you'd rather have companies never disclose this information at all by hiding them indefinitely as trade secrets? There are many things wrong with the patent system, but to block them entirely would lead to less propagation of information into the public domain.

Exactly, as the bigger corporation would just file a counter-suit to invalidate your patent.

US PTO Gives Microsoft Credit For Lotus's Homework

Freetardo Jones Re:Actually its a great cure (172 comments)

No, it would only end patents for small inventors because they wouldn't have the money to do the exhaustive searches to find any and all prior art or to pay the fines. On the other hand, huge behemoths like IBM or Microsoft would have little issues as they have huge groups of devoted staff to be used for this purpose. And if they did happen to misfile a patent, the fine would be peanuts to them.

US PTO Gives Microsoft Credit For Lotus's Homework

Freetardo Jones Re:Criminal charges (172 comments)

Of course if you really were unable to find the prior art and did the required level of due diligence in looking for it then they won't be able to prove you knew about it, so you won't get convicted and hence won't get fined.

You mean like how if you are innocent of a crime that you are never wrongfully accused and convicted? Yeah, that never happens.
