Comment: New Rights (Score 1) 408

... and depriving consumers of their fundamental right to have access to data of their own creation.

Why do we need to keep creating new rights? I thought we had a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I don't recall the founding documents mentioning healthcare, housing, or the interoperability of manufactured goods as fundamental rights.

... our duty to users everywhere to violate those bits of intellectual property at every possible opportunity until it becomes such a legal nightmare for these companies that they are forced to back down. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Another alternative is to petition your congressman/woman to change the laws to the same effect. I would imagine this to be a more civilized answer.

I know, I'm an idealist.

zonker writes "Nearly 30 years ago Lockheed Martin's elite Skunk Works team developed what would become the F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter. A few of their earlier projects include the SR-71 Blackbird and U2 Dragon Lady spy planes. Today is the last for the Stealth Fighter, which is being replaced by the F-22 Raptor (another Skunk Works project)."

When you go out to buy, don't show your silver.
