while the summary is laudatory, fawning, even, it is not central to the decision
Funny, I had the same reaction when I read it. He seemed like a salesman for Google or something.
I would like to retain your services in this matter. Please list your bank account information so that I may transfer a retainer payment to you. Thank you. Sincerely, Prince Bernard Koffi Austine Nigeria
Dear Prince Bernard,
If you're talking about my bank account, you're barking up the wrong tree
So, if this stands does this mean it's lawful for Google to make the full text available of these books, or not?
Fair use cases are very fact specific. If you start monkeying with the facts, Judge Chin might not feel the same way about it.
If google can legally copy books (even when profit is involved) then why can't I do the same?
Wouldn't I get hammered with copyright infringement problems if I scanned in books I did not author myself?
I don't know but please hire me as your lawyer when you do.
If in the hopefully unlikely chance your manager is not able to provide concrete examples of mistakes and ways to improve then you are being screwed over and that last "criticism" was actually a heads up for you that your next performance review and eventually your job is in jeopardy (been there and got the pink slip) . In such a case start networking around the company and see if you land a position with a different manager asap.
The problem is NOT that someone is DDOSing you.
The problem is that you have "diagnosed" an occasionally slow internet connection as a DDOS attack without any expertise in the area to make such a determination.
This is akin to so many of my clients telling me that they have a virus because their computer is running slow (when it almost inevitably turns out to be something else).
At any rate what you need to know is that you will NEVER be able to properly diagnose the issue on a venue like
What you need to do is hire a good consultant with networking experience to go over your system and correctly diagnose what the problem is. Yes it will cost you a couple hundred dollars to do that. Or you could live with the problem if it isn't worth that much money to you. Those are really your only sensible choices.
What a horrible example of how not to behave as a decent human being.
Agreed. Abelson should be ashamed of himself.
Other than to demonstrate how low some people can go.
In the meantime, no Guardian reporter (or anyone else it appears) appears to question why IOS 7 is apparently responsible for a rash of nausea yet we have no epidemic of people vomiting while playing video games.
You're one of my 3 favorite lawyers, the other two being the lady who handled my divorce and the man who handled my bankruptcy.
Great that you found good people to handle those important things.
