True story... I woke up with a hangover and a Google+ account. Now if I'm logged in and I rate YouTube videos or comment on them it happily insists on using my real name. Bastards... All I can guess is that I slept with Google that night and that G+ is an STD.
Hey, that's my signature!
And quite often the antibiotics used in farm animals aren't considered safe for humans.

I also wonder about how the concentrations of arsenic vary throughout the chicken - e.g. if you make pate from the chicken livers do you get a higher or lower dose? I suspect significantly higher.
Some people may also be allergic to the antibiotics or other stuff used and not actually allergic to the meat/vegetable itself.
Would different Strong AIs on the same hardware still be considered the same computer?
Or it means it was coincidental.
Does that mean you should violate the GPL?
I live in Maine. Is the a code word for black people?
Do you really think that will stop them, say when the opposite political party is in power? I don't have as much faith.
"Do you know any off-hand or can you find one or two?"
I don't have case citations at hand but you can look them up. In particular, find copyright cases surrounding player piano rolls, in which the courts ruled that it made absolutely no difference whether copyrighted works were used to control a machine.
John Philip Sousa was famously involved in some of those suits.
You say that, but I've looked at videos that buffered at low resolutions even though I could watch a popular, high-resolution video without buffering. So, yes, you can access any video but you probably won't enjoy it.
I'm going to have to give Linux Mint a try, everyone who mentions it mentions it positively. I need to get Linux on this laptop, anyway.
Hansmeier is also getting kicked off a case he was working on that was totally unrelated to Prenda's scheme of making copyright accusations over alleged pornography downloads. On Friday, the 9th Circuit Commissioner ordered Hansmeier, in no uncertain terms, to withdraw a the case involving Groupon since he has been referred to the Minnesota State Bar for investigation. The commissioner has delayed Hansmeier's admission to the 9th Circuit because of Wright's order, which refers to Wright's finding of "moral turpitude.""
"Sometimes the evidence itself is more important than the source. In the particular case, it sounds like the evidence was strong enough that it wouldn't matter which source it came from."
Fortunately there have been a few judges lately who have an actual head on their shoulders, and who have ruled that simply telling somebody their fly is open is not the same as rape.
But these B.S. laws, like CFAA and DMCA, need to disappear. They were ill-conceived and we KNOW that they cause problems. Not little problems, big ones.
I would keep the safe-harbor provisions of DMCA, and scrap all the rest of it. Same with CFAA.
"I'm just saying that a favorable ruling here would insta kill windows, especially on the business side of things where things are inter-dependent and integrated to a degree that sometimes involves licensing."
F*cking clueless judges. There is precedent going back well over 100 years that software is irrelevant to the nature of the machine. Examples: different cards in a Jacquard loom do not make it a "different" loom. Different player piano rolls do not make it a "different" piano. Etc. There are actual court decisions to this effect.
Not to mention that it is also common sense.
We demand that NASA's Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer may or may not have detected dark matter!
