SOPA Goes Back To the Drawing Board, PIPA Postponed

Ilex Re:aren't there already laws in place they can use (267 comments)

The current laws are easy to circumvent because the US can't go after foreign websites like the Pirate Bay.

Tell that to the guys who ran Megaupload.com

IT Management Always Blames the Worker Bees

Ilex Re:sigh (266 comments)

Once again, an anti-anti-piracy screed misunderstands what a "customer" is. A "customer" buys something. The guy who sneaks into your bookstore with a portable scanner and makes a copy of a book and leaves without buying anything isn't a "customer."

Playing devils advocate. What if they buy the book scan and OCR the text then upload the text for everybody to share. Are they still a customer? Do you still sue?

I usually fly...

Ilex Re:Economy Class (365 comments)

Emirates also has some pretty hot stewardesses.

I second this. For some reason their flights seem to arrive at the same time as mine and they have some smoking hot "hostesses"

I hope that's not because they're all suicide bombers. I'm due to fly with them late this year.
