BS. There's no such guarantee on any open source software. Last I checked, even Microsoft uses foreign workers.
A lot of encryption software comes from Canada because we're friendly to both sides
No, your statements may simply be phrased such that they do not clarify on which side of an argument you stand.
As soon as you try to convince the other person to sign it, you're working your way into conspiracy.
A contract not intended for another to sign is pretty much non-existent.
Lower power requirements
You just have to convince the populace that whomever you killed had it coming.
There are plenty of examples, some controversial (like Waco).
... pieces of security expert Schneier were found in his locked home, with no signs of forced entry. No signs of foul play are evident except for the brutal nature of his death. The NSA and FBI agree it must have been suicide.
That's great, so who's going to arrest those in charge of the domestic spying that *is* happening according to the Snowden files (and corroboration elsewhere).
Its not hard actually. MI-5 spies on Americans in America, CIA asks for dirt on American from MI-5.
I believe its called Echelon.
Carrying Netflix traffic isn't done for free, ever. That's just FUD spouted by ISPs trying to get free money. They tried doing it to Google first. Its either traffic for your clients, so you're already getting paid for delivering it, or its through a peering arrangement that you already find beneficial (or it wouldn't exist).
Sadly those ISPs have this attitude only because of a lack of competition.
A smart small ISP would offer to host Netflix content and put it in their advertising that while they only have x Mbit service, they guarantee an incredible Netflix experience in full HD (or even 4k).
I know many people who basically only use the Internet for Youtube and Netflix. ISPs wanting to offer that level of service could do so at very low costs with a locally-hosted CDN server.
Yes; the problem is that many local ISPs also happen to be the local cable provider and have a vested interest in not helping you cut cords.
You really don't understand the system at all, do you?
The Internet backbone is not like your analogy at all.
There are two basic types of Internet connection (to oversimplify); there are the connections between ISPs where each provides fairly equal benefit to the other; these are often 'free' except for the hardware investment. The other is the kind where service is sold to someone who has no benefit to exchange; either a user buying primarily downlink service or a web host requiring primarily uplink service, etc.
We end up with a chart that looks a bit like this: Netflix -> ISPa <- M -> ISPb -> User.
ISPa gets money from Netflix, ISPb gets money from user. So far so good? Now ISPa and ISPb are linked to each other because its in their mutual benefit. That is to say, if ISPa didn't have this link, they wouldn't have a service to sell because part of the Internet wouldn't be as accessible to their clients. By the same token, ISPb needs the link as well. If this isn't true; they simply cancel that link and the packets route around elsewhere.
For ISPb to claim that Netflix owes them money is preposterous -- the packets flowing from ISPa to ISPb are part of a peering arrangement which only exists because its beneficial to both sides. If its isn't, the side gaining more benefit is charged money by the other side. In fact, some sites offering those 'free' mirrors for downloading software only do so to keep their peering usage up (as an aside).
How long exactly have you been working with Tier-1 Internet routing and billing exactly?
That's what I thought, cause you have no idea what you're talking about.
