Happy Public Domain Day: Works That Copyright Extension Stole From Us In 2015

neghvar1 Re:revolutionary idea? (328 comments)

This is my revolutionary idea. Add a "use it or lose it" clause to copyright law. If no legitimate means of easily acquiring a legitimate copy of the copyrighted work is provided by the copyright holder, then after X number of years, that work falls into public domain. The whole point of copyright before these extensions was for the artist to profit off their works for a short period of time. After which if they wanted to continue making a profit, they had to continue using that creative mind of theirs to create new works of music,books, music, etc. It is not the intention of copyright for the creators childen's children's children's children or a corporation for centuries to be squeezing every possible penny out of the public who are interested in the work

Sony Demands Press Destroy Leaked Documents

neghvar1 Re:DOCUMENTS? (250 comments)

it may be legal as lobbying and campaign donations. The 0.01% call it that. The remaining 99.99% of us call it bribery. The mask may say lobbying, but behind the mask is the spirit of bribery.

neghvar1 prescription lenses (357 comments)

If a user has their Google Glass customized with prescription lenses, then forcing that user to remove the Google Glass in the theater or leave it in their car would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act and open the opportunity for a lawsuit against the theater and the MPAA

Interviews: Ask Florian Mueller About Software Patents and Copyrights

neghvar1 in simplest form (187 comments)

In simplest form. If company A patented 5+5=10. Then company B patented 20/2=10. Then company C patented Sqrt(100)=10. Would companies B and C be infringing company A's patent because it produces the same output. Even though the inputs and functions used are different. Based on what I read these days, that is what it sound like. If you produce the same output, even when the code is completely different, or even a different coding language, you are likely infringing the patent. Is this how bad software patents are.

UK Copyright Reforms Legalize Back-Ups, Protect Parody

neghvar1 been legal in US too. (68 comments)

It has been legal to make personal backups here in the US for decades. They way big media circumvented that law was by lobbying for the DMCA and once passed, encrypt everything. Thus nullifying the law for the consumers.

Microsoft To Buy Minecraft Maker Mojang For $2.5 Billion

neghvar1 hope for improvements (330 comments)

My hope here is that the game is developed to go beyond java rendering. Even with a Core i7, the game hogs about 70% of the CPU and about 3.2GB of memory. On average. Utilize the GPU, Direct X, OpenGL. Something to make resource handling more efficient.
