Finnish Minister Wants To Expand Pornography Censorship

kh31d4r Re:What are we going to miss out on? (270 comments)

This Slashdot submission is about Finland. It's a different country. Different countries have different consitutions. The First Amendment to the US Constitution does not have any legal force in Finland.

This comes as a shock! Time for US to invade Finland?

North Korea's Satellite Is Out of Control

kh31d4r Re:send the mini-shuttle over there to wack it (450 comments)

I doubt they can. It's not hard to capture a drifting object, but if it's actually "out of control" (fired a thruster until it obtained an energetic spin), then they'd have more work to do than just send up a shuttle with grappling arm.

You left spacedock without a tractor beam?

Ericsson Seeks US Import Ban On Samsung Products

Ascribing ulterior motives? May be, that's because they're playing hard ball and asking for an immediate import ban just before Christmas.

TVShack Founder Signs Deal Avoiding Extradition

I'm fairly certain he was hosting the content himself. If I spent all my money to make an expensive show and then someone ripped it off and started streaming it for free and stealing my viewers and making money off my work that they paid nothing for, I'd fucking kill them. The fact that Hollywood companies are rich, greedy assholes is irrelevant. Stealing content is stealing content and making money on someone else's work is wrong. If someone ripped off Libre Office and started selling copies for cash and violating the GPL, everyone on slashdot would be going apeshit over it. There is no difference.

Sigh. If he stole it, they wouldn't have it anymore.

$1,500,000 Fine For Sharing 10 Movies On BitTorrent

kh31d4r Re:WTF... (339 comments)

Interesting notions but you assume that the lawmakers actually care about common sense.

They don't. They care about keeping their palms greased.

WRONG metaphor to use with this story, now it will take a few strong drinks to get that mental image out of my head...

Maybe a few 'shots'? <badumching>

One is enough if you place it right.
