Comment Re:Nothing open to the sky (Score 1) 116

Many prisons are entirely enclosed and are not deemed cruel.

Because prisoners still get outside time.

Then the Drones will deliver to where they are outside, instead of the yard.

All you are doing is shifting the problem, not addressing it. Maybe making it ever so slightly more difficult, to a negligible amount that doesn't do the idea justice.

Really, they should just shut down the use of anything electronic within the bounds of the yard. That is much simpler, and far more effective since it also stops a lot of other problems, like cell phone use.

Comment Abuse of the justice system (Score 1) 205

The way the government went after you was an abuse of the system. Seizing your domains and assets before a court hearing, the raid, the fact that you were not doing anything illegal etc..Do you plan to use your resources to highlight this corruption and prevent it from happening to others?

The infringer gets something for nothing â" like a thief. The copyright holder loses something â" like a theft-victim.

The 'infringer' often has no legitimate means to otherwise access the content. Canadian Netflix has a 10th of what US Netflix does, so what is a better solution here, if the 'infringer' wants to stream something that Bell refuses to make available?

The copyright holder only potentially loses something. That's key. If they made it available on Canadian Netflix they wouldn't be losing anything, and if it wasn't possible to watch over a US based VPN they may not pay for it at all. I know I wouldn't.
