Richard Stallman's Dissenting View of Steve Jobs

Lazaru5 Re:Stallman and FOSS (1452 comments)

>> Linux geeks ... are happy to see people die.

>He did not say that. He said, 'I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone.'

He (tech4) did not say that. Effective use of ellipses there to intentionally misquote someone. He said "Now people will think of Linux geeks as those lunatics who are happy to see people die." He (tech4) KNOWS that he (Stallman) didn't say that, but it's certainly true that "people" are likely to think "... of Linux geeks as those lunatics who are happy to see people die." That's what some people will think *regardless* of what Stallman actually said.

Zediva Shut Down By Federal Judge, MPAA Parties!

Lazaru5 Re:Definition of "publicly" in US copyright law (189 comments)

They really don't have access to it. If they did then they'd have to put up with me pausing the movie to go to the bathroom or to the kitchen for a snack. In the former case it could be a long wait.

Alter the question slightly and ask how is "transmitting" the video over the Internet any different than "transmitting" a DVD from the rental store to my house?

As a movie rental consumer, what rights do I have? I've paid my X dollars to Blockbuster, what rights do I now have regarding the DVD? Can I copy it? No, it's not my DVD. Can I watch it? Yes. Legally, what is that actual right?

Whatever that right actually is should apply regardless of where the DVD is or how it the content came to be displayed before my eyes.

Even with rental stores, there is *already* "a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances" potentially have access to it." Anyone can walk in and rent it - unless it's already out.

Pro Tip: The high IP in the subnet is the broadcast address. I.E. in a Class C sized network (256 addresses), the broadcast address would be x.x.x.255, not x.x.x.0. The ".0" is the network address.

The question was meant to argue that the medium over which the content is transmitted (copper vs radio) should be irrelevant.

But to respond to your question.... "people".. or "person?"

Highly not, and no.

Slingbox does this for example.

Lazaru5 Re:Slingbox? (189 comments)

This is not broadcast. It's not even "limited broadcast." As mentioned elsewhere, this is unicast - or point to point. From the DVD player to me, and *only* to me, in my house, on my computer.
