Comment: Harrassment and frivolity (Score 1) 83 83

Isn't there anything in the law to penalize frivolous claims of ownership as harassment? Copyright does not need to be defended as voraciously as trademark, so there is no need for them to keep pumping the entire Youtube side through algorithms and blindly send takedown notices.

Even if there were, well-- you'll have to hire employees to vet the hits. That's the cost of doing business.

It's a fine tool for the job, but it sounds like their IT are being lazy.

A PCI compliant environment has to have everything audited and documented. Auditing has to be done every quarter and documentation has to be reviewed every 6 months. In other words, it's a lot of work. It doesn't matter what OS is used, it takes a lot of time and effort. So in order to implement Windows 10 (or anything else for that matter), services have to be audited, permissions documented, any GPO changes must be documented and audited.

If that's the environment, they're probably waiting for Windows 10 to either become a business requirement or they're waiting for their next audit/documentation review period.

So basically, either you don't have an IT dept, or they're to lazy to bother creating local accounts.

It's insanely easy to create local accounts on Windows 10. Far, far easier than it was under Windows 8. It even gives you hints along the way about how to do it. Contrast that with Windows 8, where you literally had to skip past account creation and look for the "Create local account" button at the bottom of the screen. So if anything, Windows 10 makes it easier to avoid going online than Windows 8 did.

I don't know about disabling services, but I don't think it's any harder to do than it was in Windows 8 or Windows 7.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
