Journal: "Why have you made me a Foe?"

Journal by PhilHibbs

Because your comments contain something that I object to. Not the content, I'm happy to read your differing opinions, but something in the structure of the comment. Most likely, your comments contain a "sig" that is not removed by the "Disable Sigs" checkbox. If you insist on overriding my preferences and adding a sig to the body of your comments, or you indulge in any other formatting tricks that spoil the slashdot experience, then you are my foe.

Journal: Which? on CD copying (story submission) 2

Journal by PhilHibbs

Computing Which?, an entirely independent UK consumer magazine, is running a report on Apple, Sony etc.'s confusing stance on copyright. "Rip, mix, burn", but "The products that we produce ... are licenced to use for material for which [the consumer] holds the copyright". The article advocates the explicit legalisation of personal CD copying. (Can anyone work out what the BPI are saying in the last paragraph?)

What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.
