And they've won the first round, in the form of a sales ban on the attachment. Their website so far makes no reference of the sales ban, but still seems to be accepting orders." top
Now, before you let your brain leave you and actually get excited about this, various sites have already sprung up to debunk this. But the question remains: why? Could this be a teaser for a Back to the Future Part 4? A hoverboard-based video game? Or is Funny Or Die just trying to tug on the heart strings of futuristic technology lovers everywhere?" top
Band seeks compensation after music used in Guantanamo Bay interrogations
time_lords_almanac (3527081) writes "A Canadian band has sent an invoice to the U.S. Department of Defense after learning that its music was used without permission in "interrogations" of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The members of Skinny Puppy, who specialize in electronic music, were originally going to make the invoice the cover of their next album until they discovered they could bring legal action against the department. They were also none to happy to learn the purpose their music was being employed for, let alone illegally. The amount of compensation requested? $666,000, of course."
