You would think these assholes are smart enough not to try this. One sure way to ramp up the investigations of these things is to switch from inconveniencing idiots that don't backup to murder.
He is also the idiot that said "if I am elected president we will all be saying Merry Christmas again"
And I thought Carson was the one that wanted to turn the US into a theocracy.
"troll" mod is slashdotese for "i disagree"
I wasn't really thinking this, but you do have a good point. I was more along the lines of abuse, things that either are fair use or are completely original content getting hit by the DCMA. Google/Youtube enables this, by allowing channels to be auto-banned with no human intervention. I have never heard of anyone getting punished for abusing this.
It isn't just corporations too. Some Youtube users will DCMA anyone that makes a reply video to them if they don't like it. (read: the reply makes a valid point and makes the user look like an idiot)
My point is that they will only protect profitable channels, small fries will continue to get abused by the DCMA.
From a corporate profits perspective this is the prudent thing to do, can't waste dollars protecting things that will never make money. Is it the right thing to do? I don't know. Most youtube content is complete crap, why bother protecting it?
How do we decide what is worth protecting? This I really don't know.
"Google and Youtube really does not care about fair use or the legal rights of their users."
nitehawk214 does not care if you know if that is true, as he has no idea if it is or if it isn't, but he does hate Google, and will write whatever he can against them in hopes that he can sway your opinion of them.
The customers get to pay for support, so if anything, the ERP company makes more by having a shitty product.
Nobody high up in a big company cares about legacy code and technical debt. Even if cleaning up the codebase would increase customer retention. ERP is not about delivering a product to customers that they want, it is about getting sales to make predatory contracts to squeeze money out of hapless customers.
Google and Youtube really does not care about fair use or the legal rights of their users. All they care about is advertising money. Now that there are some alternatives to Youtube, big channels are threatening to leave if the flood of false DCMA notifications does not stop.
What's it like having the brain of a 10 year old?
Its great, I keep it in a jar on the shelf.
When quantum encryption is outlawed both outlaws and law abiding citizens will simultaneously both have and lack quantum encryption.
Just the audacity of them makes me pissed off.
Only if you are a complete moron. How is it any more scary than any other communication that is not being traced?
Not necessarily in every case. A lot of conditions can be treated by a lot of drugs in the same families, such as NSAIDs and antibiotics. A pharmacist probably couldnt tell you which NSAID is best. Usually a doctor tries the cheapest one first (to help the patient since most have to foot at least part of the bill), then switch them up if the desired effect doesn't happen.
