A device on your wrist with a good sized screen to work with your phone is fairly stupid. I forget the watch company but someone has something close to what I would really want.

A real watch with a single line color display that allows me to control my phone.

Show caller ID allow a button press to answer phone for my bluetooth, hang up, switch lines and beep and display calendar apts and alarms, Just give me a watch that makes me not need to pull out my phone for stupid little stuff. Do not try to give me a large display on my wrist. I have one in my pocket.

You are correct. It is the law. It is not though a right.

Making money, free healthcare, and union benefits are not rights.

The right to speak your opinion without government punishing you, the right to live, and so on are rights. It may be really beneficial to society to give free healthcare. It may not. But it is not a right. Too many of you whiny entitled self important young uns think everything nice is a right that people are owed.

He was right though. Copyright is a government granted right. To encourage production of copyrightable material.

It is not a protected right it is a granted privilege. Rights are protected from being removed by others. Copyright and Patent are granted privileges.

You can call it whatever you want but truth is truth.

Notoriously exploited. Awesome. A group of people that only have to work 9 months out of the year and get every holiday possible. A group of people that in my state after just a few years can not be fired. People that have had massive raises and make 6 figure incomes with retirement packages that are some of the best you can get and have while getting massive amounts of money funneled to them have overseen changing education to the point where you can graduate high school and not be able to read the back of a cereal box. I would love to see these people more than exploited. I want to see them gone.
