this has already gone through the courts... keys can not be copyrighted as they are not expressive works. Notice the CSS key is all over the place
It's too bad that we have protection of free speech here. That includes speech you or Sony does not like
I don't see why they even need to bother. This seems like a clear free speech issue. Just like publishing the CSS key is free speech. You might not be able to sell a program like DVD Decrypter.. but you can certainly publish the key
One nice thing about America is that Congress can not make a law that abridges freedom of speech. Well, at least that is how it's supposed to work. I see nothing here but someone exercising free speech
When I need a new laptop I send them the specs of exactly what I want..
.then they buy it and ship it to me. I then install the OS from scratch and put whatever I want on it (including some corporate softwarre we have licenses for like MS Office and such)
The joys of working from home :-)
huh... not if it's YOUR property that YOU pay for. You are thinking of company owned equipment.. which of course they can scan.. it's theirs
Going to speeding for something less serious than speeding is ridiculous.. that's the problem. If you hacked my e-mail you would never go to prison
IMO shoplifting and even SPEEDING are more dangerous crimes
+10 great post
That actually would be ok
..... IF the common man controlled the government. Notice that when populations are small... there is far less complaining about the govt.
The problem is that when elites control the govt (which is the case in many places) you're statement has a lot of truth to it
Heck, in the US we've reached the point where NEITHER party cares about civil liberties.
I must be a weird guy.. because I find a lot of common ground with both Bernie Sanders (socialist) and Ron Paul (libertarian)
The people that wrote that report might want to look up the word liberal in the dictionary. The democratic party isn't even close to being "liberal". They, like the republicans, are authoritarian statists....
I guess you missed the US mercenaries buying and selling young boys as sex slaves
Wars are necessary? What war since WW2 has been necessary? Stop making excuses for murdering innocent people. If you think the Iraq war was "necessary" you are simply an evil murderer who's too much of a coward to pull the trigger yourself
I find it hilarious that Americans say "yes, in war civilians get killed". If those civilians were HERE people wouldn't be so damn cavalier about it. People in Europe are much less likely to support wars because they actually know what the phrase "civilian casualities" really means
While I appreciate the spirit of your commment...the problem is that it's not just the passengers that can be affected.... Remember that the planes on 9-11 crashed into buildings containing people who had NO agreement with the airline That being said.. I agree that the current TSA nonsense is completely useless... the Israeli method would be far superior
