maliqua Re:Hollywood overlords (356 comments)

If I published a "how to" guide to real Somali-style piracy, with handy links to the latest ship locations, wouldn't this be considered a crime?

No it's actually not.

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

maliqua What irks me the most (700 comments)

The thing that really bugs me the most about this is, they don't have to make counterfeit chips to sell them, if they simply made another chip that used an ssop-24 or whatever standard case the FTDI ones use, and made it pin compatible, but released it under their own name, people would still buy them, most people buying cheap chips from china know they're not getting an ftdi chip, they don't really care they want something so they can build to a price and include X functionality.

If the silicon itself is a unique design (and i'm not saying it is) then they would be totally above board..

Not Just Netflix: Google Challenges Canada's Power To Regulate Online Video

maliqua Re:fuck american hegemony (109 comments)

believe it or not Canada has in the past in many situations had laws that differ from the united states, and in those situations most of the time the american companies have decided to continue to follow our laws.

You'd be surprised many of your international corporations adhere to even stranger laws in other countries.

and you know what, if we lose out on a few episodes of Orange is the new Black, our nation will survive

Not Just Netflix: Google Challenges Canada's Power To Regulate Online Video

maliqua Re:Come on... (109 comments)

I think the big difference is netflix uses bought licensed content and a subscription model which makes it compete with what is currently accepted as broadcasters.

i don't think the rules should apply to youtube or other distributors of self published content. Think of the reprocussions of regulating content sites like youtube would be far reaching and devastating, the porn industry would be figuratively fucked for a change.
