The business model TQP and other patent trolls use may be a thing of the past if the Innovation Act 2013 passes http://jolt.law.harvard.edu/digest/patent/innovation-act-of-2013-latest-effort-to-disarm-patent-trolls
also lead to mass layoff and unemployment and be the direct cause of the next great depression.
Of course we all know this will be biased. Piracy funds terrorism, illegal drugs, crime and violence.
If I were US president, I'd declare a presidential pardon on all charges. I believe what he did is in the best interest of our country. Not our government, but our country.

Lying on an affidavit is perjury and gathering evidence is limited to what the warrant states. Other evidence outside the scope of the warrant requires another warrant before it can be taken. Otherwise that evidence is inadmissible.
So what does this mean for white hat hackers and Certified Ethical Hackers
and I'm sure NSA is forcing them to implement a backdoor or else the NSA will shut them down.
I use to never go to the doctor unless it seemed life-threatening. Then I got married and have a daughter. Now my wife nags me to got all my shots, vaccines and sends me to the doctor over insignificant ailments.
The answer behind all this is quite simple. Big media bribing Tim to use DRM and it looks like he accepted the bribe. Pure and simple.
This is a tactic being pushed by traditional cab companies to put Uber out of business and maintain the status quo. Unwilling to adapt and compete with new technologies. Same tactic as big business sending SLAPP suits or pressuring governmental entities to pass ordinances and laws that would hinder or outlaw the new technology or business practice.
So who will the next victims be of the NSA dragnets? Truecrypt? Or will all forms of encryption be banned unless they apply a universal backdoor for government use?
Ok, not marketed. unavailable for the public to legally purchase not accessible. cannot access or use with any modern technology (requires an obsolete and no longer available tech) not developed. Company puts little or no effort into improving or maintaining it. not supported. No customer support.
That's why I'd like to see a use it or lose it clause. When people demand a product but the rights holder refuses to release the product, consumers will then find some other way to acquire the product they want. Usually download it illegally. Is the rights holder then indirectly promoting piracy of their own product? Same applies to old PC and console games, but many rights owners are re-releasing their old products via digital downloads or passing on the marketing responsibilities to another company licensed to sell their old games. www.gog.com (Good ol' Games) has many old games with the DRM stripped, modified to run on present OS's (often via DOSBox) and many have extra content. pdfs of manuals, star charts, maps, resource trees, HD images for wallpapers and sometimes ringtones of audio from the game. Answering the consumer demands opened a new avenue of revenue for the rights holders.
What do you mean?
