+ - Seattle off the deep end deeming 'brown bag' and 'citizen' offensive->

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 (797399) writes "Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions.

The city's Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive."

LittleBigPlanet Creations Raising Copyright Questions 66

Posted by Soulskill

Joystiq's Law of the Game column uses the recently released LittleBigPlanet to address the question of intellectual property rights for user-created content within and for games. At this point, Sony's ToS claims a great deal of control over users' work, unlike Second Life's, which is much more permissive. GiantBomb has a related story pointing out creations within LittleBigPlanet that are copies of other games, and how they could lead to legal troubles for Sony if they aren't quick about taking them down.

+ - Copyright or License Your Resume?

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Have you ever submitted a resume to a recruiter, and the recruiter significantly modified your resume for submission to a prospective employer? In fact, they munged it to the point that you feel that not only the format was changed, but substantial content was modified? Over the years, I have modified my resume many times, working to make it as readable and informative as I can. I will admit it is long, but I have a lot of experience, and I feel it is well laid out and pretty easy to read. I feel that some of the modifications that recruiters make actually detract from the format, and sometimes make the meaning different from the original intent. I can understand removing my contact information when submitting, as they don't want employers doing an end-run around them to contact prospects. Would it be a good idea to attach some kind of copyright, or require that recruiters submit resumes as I submitted to them?"

Stupidity, like virtue, is its own reward.
