I think Bittorrent should file a RICO civil suit for conspiracy and copyright abuse against the RIAA and the MPAA and their associated companies for conspiracy in attempting to de-legitimize an essentially legal service by prohibiting member companies from making legitimate use of the service. The flack Cinedigm is getting is the first layer of proof needed that they colluded to do so. The discovery process alone should quite be fun to watch.
The problem is the jamming doesn't stop at their walls and can negatively affect people who have the right to use their cellphones. Under the part 15 requirements issued by the FCC, (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
I would love a legal option for buy access to all of the HBO content online. A HBO streaming video not tied to terrestrial cable companies would be the must have of streaming services. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime, and I would be happy to add HBO Online to that lineup
The DMCA does not grant any rights to trademark holders at all. It only applies to copyrights. They can't use the DMCA to get the trademark infringing content removed. Their only option is a trademark infringement lawsuit. It's total BS and you are free to toss it in the circular file.
They will all tell you this but everyone of them will fold if you insist. Most will simply require you to wear eye protection.
Biometrics have one fatal flaw that has always scared the hell out of me. If someone wants past biometrics, they will either develop fake body parts that work as good as the original, or they will just remove the actual body part.
I observe every single thing done to my car. I am there in the shop as they do them; not in the waiting room. I have seen belts put on backwards, i have seen a mechanic raise my hood into the ceiling. I also come out with a full understanding of what needed to be done on my vehicle and why. Healthcare is the same. You should have full access to YOUR records.
What they said... "Time Warner Cable: No Consumer Demand For Gigabit Internet"
What they meant... "Time Warner Cable: No Consumer Demand For Gigabit Internet at the prices we would be willing to sell it for."
Nothing stops a publisher from selling a DRM free ebook, if they choose to do so. Nothing stops a user from buying a DRM free ebook and using it on their reader. Check out the Calibre program. What these publishers want is to force publishers to sell all ebooks in a drm free format. Not gonna happen.
You have the power here. Remember if you as a consumer refuse to buy a overly locked down console it will fail, and they will go back to the old way of doing business. Punish abusive restrictions on your rights by voting with your pocketbook...
If they want everyone to have access to the web them they will have no problems bringing back the unlimited usage plans...
This is total bullshit. ATT can choose to provide tech support to the users who need it by assessing a tech support fee. Instead of charging people who have a smart phone more for the privilege. The only support I have ever asked for is paying my bill. I shouldn't be required to subsidize the stupid.
1. Require the plaintiff in a patent suit to actually manufacture and sell a product using the patent in question. No patent holding companies putting their tax on innovation.
2. Require patents to be available under a statutory rate which must to the lowest license fee charged to any of the current licensees.
Laws say what they mean, If they meant State Constitutions they would have said state constitutions. Instead they said "the Constitution." What you said had merit only if they said "their Constitutions".
