There's just no way it could identify particular device. A particular kind of device at most. And even then it wouldn't be very reliable.
Maybe, but there's no need for quotes around word "cause".
Well, if it was a mistake in any case then why does it matter which exact side in conflict did it and from who did it import the weapon?
No, I mean it makes sense for them to initiate those measures. I think they don't because they expect US to veto it.
At most he just supported one group of rebels against other. What they need to do is to organize UN peacekeeper mission there, not wage proxy war with US.
You didn't contradict me. Whatever Putin does is unrelated to conflict between former soviet citizens in Ukraine. He could attempt to take advantage of it but that's it. It's Ukraine's government's job to settle their issue with their citizens peacefully and they failed it. So it need a new government again.
You got that wrong. Putin is merely a populist. Many people on Ukraine got shafted after partition of Soviet Union and they want to go back. All past Ukrainian governments just failed to give them what they want and they got tired of it. It's not Russian government's fault that they failed to find a peaceful arrangement, but it's not surprising it's trying to exploit the situation. It's just taking pointers from US's government.
There's also question of motivation. Why would soldiers waste expensive missiles for some irrelevant passenger plane? Why would be there a plane over a warzone in the first place? That just doesn't make sense. Definitely not terrorism. When you perform a terrorist act you tell that YOU did it in order to intimidate. You don't deny you did it.
It's unique work, not part of a product line. Besides, no consumer will think that the statue is made by DC just because it's Superman, thus no possibility of consumer confusion exist thus trademarks don't come into equation.
Trademarks definitely aren't involved in this case because no product is being marketed.
There are gesture add-ons for Firefox.
Actually no sane variation of windows runs on ARM architecture, so they'd be forced to adopt some other OS, possible choices there are mostly opensource.
The only thing secret trials are useful for is removing political opponents by imprisoning or executing them on fake charge. It's easier to go public in other situations. Witness lives can be safeguarded by appropriate programs. And they are hiding defendants' names, not witnesses'.
If they assert that even such tame legislation can harm 'legitimate' patent holder then it's an argument in favor of abolition of patent system altogether, because it's hard to find meaningful difference between 'legitimate' and 'troll' which makes the patent system itself more harmful than useful since any obviously existing abuses run unchecked. Each such successful lobbying effort supports the position of patent/copyright abolitionists like me
HFT looks like taxation levied by private entities to me. No contribution from those traders other than them taking some cut from all deals they piggy-back on.
