Does it really? Then why is Assange being harrased by governments around the world? Most of people here on slashdot think it has something to do with the US Govt. Why not just leave him alone?
The US law does apply to Gasprom in US territory. And they either (a) comply with local laws or (b) are denied the right to act inside the United States. What you are implying is simply stupid, which is regulating the market with fixed prices. In this case we are not talking about the sale of a product but the streaming of a video which the court ruled infringes election laws thereby threatens the sovernity of a country. We really shouldn't let private companies interfere with elections because that just empowers the top 1%ers who control those companies. I still think that we should not regulate the internet as a one-sided single nation desicion but if anything we should not interfere with the government of any democratic country and influence people that way. That makes it easy for them to push a political agenda of some sort, for example, Copyright enforcement.
I'm pretty sure you will still disagree with my point of view but please at least make examples that make sense.
It's just two different situations really.
They don't have a datacenter but they do have a local office and Google is a registred company in Brazil so they either (a) comply with local laws or (b) close the company local office. It really is that simple.
That's not how you do business and this is not a reason for not operating in some country. They earn money in Brazil and they would just lose that revenue by skipping a large economy just because of some silly youtube video. Having a local office helps you receive payments and is a major deal breaker expecially when dealing with corporate customers.
If, during american elections, people posted videos saying Obama is a rapist and favors abortion I'm sure it would be removed.
I had already moderated on this topic but after reading this post I felt like whoever mod parent down was -1, Disagree.
I understand OP point of view but with something as global as the Internet why should one government or another regulate it?
Either give it to the UN or better, don't regulate it at all. Why should US cops snoop on data that comes from say, Latin America to Canada?
I think that from now on we should be standardizing encryption because the overhead it causes IS worth it.
I just ROT13 my answers twice and that's about it.
You do realize that same sentence could apply to Google with Android OS? Only that they do have full root control on your phone.
PS: I do use an Android phone with sync to Google servers.
Well you get what you pay for. The build quality of a Lamborguini is different of Audi which itself is different from Volkswagen (They are all part of the Porsche Holding).
But I should say the same powertrain used in Audi is used in most of the VW family (the TFSI gasoline direct injection engine with S Tronic/DSG - Audi/Volkswagen branding, they are the same gearbox and they're fantastic)... I know you might be used to larger V8/V6 engines (common in the US, not so common in the rest of the world where fuel is expensive) but these engines have nice milage and very decent power, and as you said, they are very fun
I would include Volkswagen (which happens to be the largest automobile company in the world) to your list but for some reason they don't have a significant marketshare in the US.
DRM patch is usually released before the games hit the shelves anyways thanks to our Razor1911 friends
Maybe you should get yourself a tinfoil hat while doing so, won't hurt
It is also unclear how Symantec's source code ended up with the Lords of Dharmaraja, whose public face goes by the name Yamatough on a Twitter feed.
Yamatough, whose profile picture shows a Tibetan painting of Dharmaraja, the Hindu god of death and justice, follows many members of the "Anonymous" hacking collective, and Symantec attributes the hack to that group.
I never knew you could follow someone Anonymous.

I'm quite the opposite, I really like talking with scammers and giving them bogus info
