The Pirate Bay Responds To Raid

Shagg Re:The Pirate Bay (302 comments)

If the producer of content has decided not to offer their content in your region, then you have no way to pay them for the content. Whether you access it or not at that point is moot, because the producer of the content has already said that they don't want your money. As owners of the content it's completely up to them who they are interested in accepting payment from.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Shagg Re:Flip Argument (1128 comments)

Incorrect. There is a grand jury who made a decision on terms and evidence dictated by the prosecutor. I think that's the real problem here. A trial, while imperfect, is adversarial and offers the chance to present more evidence and make counter arguments on any terms. The grand jury was limited to what the prosecutor decided to allow.

I'm confused. Are you saying that the grand jury would have been more likely to indict Wilson, if Wilson had been allowed to have a defense attorney?

Ford, GM Sued Over Vehicles' Ability To Rip CD Music To Hard Drive

Shagg Re:The Alliance of Artists should lose this suit (317 comments)

Going after the tool maker gives them the possibility of a bigger pot of gold at the end. People like this don't care who is actually doing the crime, they care about who has the most money that they can go after.

Ford, GM Sued Over Vehicles' Ability To Rip CD Music To Hard Drive

Shagg Re:Good luck with that. (317 comments)

Don't give them any ideas. Next will be a lawsuit claiming that the primary purpose of the vehicle is to rip copyrighted material and transport it across state lines.

Inventor Has Waited 43 Years For Patent Approval

Shagg Re:"Square wave machine control" (258 comments)

Seems broad, all right... and obvious, and like there would be prior art.

Actually, it's a patent for "Square wave with rounded corners machine control", so it's OK.

Shagg Re:forward reverse forward reverse (304 comments)

please jump in and sort out whether this is primarily a problem of older hardware not being able to handle newer publications, or of newer hardware becoming unable/unwilling to render older content?

Both.

Feds Grab 163 Web Sites, Snatch $21.6 Million In NFL Counterfeit Gear

Shagg Re:For A Non-Profit, The NFL Sure Has A Lot Of Pul (133 comments)

Yes, but now that the information is out there, how many current players have retired early because of it? Only one that I've heard of. Whether or not the NFL deliberately hid information from past players probably wouldn't have made any difference either.

Facebook Being Sued Over Mining of Private Messages

Shagg Re:User of service (170 comments)

It is attitudes like this that encourages treating users like crap.

Yes, Facebook does treat it's users like crap.

Without the users they have zero value of what they have to offer the advertisers

True, but for now they have plenty of users (most of whom probably don't care that their information is being mined/sold). Until that changes, they will continue to treat them like crap.
