Cricket Reactor Inventor Says $1mil Prize Winners Stole His Work
That is precisely how the market DOES organically set price to value.
A seller is free to set a price on his product at whatever he wants.
If this price is at or below the perceived value of the product, then consumers will buy it. If it is below the perceived value, then consumers will buy more (each consumer buys more units or more consumers will buy). If the price is higher than perceived value, then consumers just won't buy it. They'll either find alternatives or just do without.
That's how the market works. Your position that the "transaction price is below what te (sic) buyer values a good at and above what a seller values at" doesn't work. You can only have a transaction if both parties actually connect at a price point where both parties overlap. If there's no overlap, there's no transaction -- both buyer and consumer walk away. No transaction means no "transaction price."
This is covered in every intro to economics course in the first few lectures.

Have you been on Youtube lately? Blowing crap up is a pretty common hobby among Americans.
USAF Unveils Supercomputer Made of 1,760 PS3s
The US government is conveniently exempted from the DMCA when national security issues become involved.
Pretty much anything to do with the armed forces can very easily be swept under that particular rug.
Hunters Shot Down Google Fiber
OK. I see your point, but I still think my original point is valid. If you're wrecking property that isn't yours, the charge is going to be destruction of public or private property, not poaching. That means you'd be a vandal, not a hunter.
Hunters Shot Down Google Fiber
The article says that HUNTERS regularly TRIED to hit the insulators. That's like those jackasses that shoot up stop signs for fun. It's called VANDALISM, not HUNTING.
I'm guessing the animal rights nuts and anti-gun people are thinking that hunters go in the woods, get bored, and start shooting at random objects to pass the time..
That makes absolutely no sense. Regardless of what game you're going after, if you make any noise at all, any game in the vicinity will take off. If you fire off a shot, you can pretty much pack it up and go home. You're not getting anything that day.

So, would it give her any protection in case of identity theft? Surely someone's causing market confusion about the product in that case.
eBay Denies New Design Is Broken, Blames Users
In this particular scenario, it seems like Ebay is punishing itself.
The buyer can't get the page to work, so doesn't bid on the seller's stuff.
The item either doesn't sell or it sells for less.
Since Ebay's fee structure is a listing fee plus a percentage of the final sale price, they stand to make less if they choose to ignore this.
FAA May Ditch Vista For Linux
If they make the right choices, little or no training will be required except on the maintenance/IT side. All of the off the shelf Microsoft based applications have Linux or Java analogs that have near identical interfaces right down to appearance and keyboard shortcuts. When it comes to custom software, it will take some time to recode them for the Linux platform, but it's fairly easy to duplicate the interface there too.
If done right, I doubt anyone will even really notice the change over. You can set it up so that the differences are even smaller than the transition from XP to Vista. Remember that with the exception of the IT staff and developers, very few of the staff ever even see the command line, which is where the greatest differences lie between windows and Linux.
