When you break the law, you're a punk. When you break the law with a badge, you're a punk with a badge. I don't strike officers. Punks? Different story. -Defendor

I would imagine that things that go through the spam filter and get dropped in your spam folder probably do not get as closely looked at. You would not have opened it and spam folder empties itself every week or so.
Also the case could be made that you technically didn't possess it, google did since you never downloaded it to your computer.
Just prohibit non-practicing entities from extorting money via patents.
If you have a patent for a better process for making widgets and you arent in the business of making widgets then you dont get to harass widget making companies.

That's amazing. I've got the same combination on my luggage.
Exactly... if you have 2 people working 60+ hour weeks then you really need to hire another person. Except that business doesnt want to hire more people because they're cheap bastards.
Despite all things pointing to the fact that overtime hours (more than 40 in a week or more than 8 in a day) contribute to reduced productivity. So those hours that people are getting paid 1.5x their pay are actually the hours they're usually least productive... If only the bean counters would realize that.
Also if they did that there might not be a huge unemployment issue.
Do you know how nasty some of those toilet cleaning chemicals are...
There was a story recently of a school where some girls got chemical burns because they sat down on toilet seats that had been cleaned with these chemicals. Now imagine being exposed to those chemicals day after day.
Actually the logic involvedin 'find them both guilty' in this case is legitimate.
In Canada if a group of people say go rob a bank and one of them ends up shooting the rent-a-cop and killing him everyone can be charged with murder because they were all in on the original crime of robbing the bank.
Except the burden of proof in a criminal case is on the state... So they're the ones that should pay for this regardless of the outcome. They're already willing to blow millions on court staff, judges, prosecutors, etc...
I mean think of all the court cases where the governments run people into the ground by dragging their heels and racking up legal expenses for the person who may be innocent.
Who uses office when on windows... I just use notepad.exe
Yeah ban US tourism there and people of the rest of the world will flock there because they wont have to put up with stuck up american tourists
Unless he gets extradited to the US which given how NZers and the world responded to how the US went about this including using foreign intelligence agencies to prosecute a civil court matter... I really dont think it's gonna happen.
Best way to avoid prosecution on some matter is to stay out of the reach of those who want you. Particularly if those crimes are minor or non-existant in the eyes of the public. Many people who arent of the MAFIAA persuasion believe he's the victim and that is hard to overcome even with the big media's propeganda machine.
I'm sure that applying encryption would count as 'DRM' of sort... and under many DMCA like laws breaking any DRM scheme is grounds for a prison sentence
I wish I had mod points for this comment
Or spoof the signal as coming from 0,0,0 (center of the earth) and brick all guns in the area...
