Comment: Harrassment and frivolity (Score 1) 58 58

Isn't there anything in the law to penalize frivolous claims of ownership as harassment? Copyright does not need to be defended as voraciously as trademark, so there is no need for them to keep pumping the entire Youtube side through algorithms and blindly send takedown notices.

Even if there were, well-- you'll have to hire employees to vet the hits. That's the cost of doing business.

If a militia could not keep the government in check, it's only because the oppressive government has made it a self-fulfilling prophecy. I assure you, if there were no restrictions on military weapons, everyone would have them. In the 18th century, private citizens had cannon. Where do you think the militia got them from?

What the hell does the second amendment have to do with Macroland killing its citizens?

Your people are under constant surveillance, have no property rights, can have your speech silenced at any moment by a mere stroke of the pen, and you meekly accept all this. The government has no need to kill any of you because you are already dead. You are all subjects, and your liberty is an illusion.

A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing.
