No that was pretty much ignored as well...
Until it gets extended, yet again. Registered on creation in 1928, under the terms of the then effective Copyright Act of 1909, Steamboat Willie would have expired in 1984.
Hardly. I think this blog post sums it up best. http://amandablumwords.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/3/. She didn't try and work with anyone, she wasn't out to correct anything. She was out use her bully pulpit to 1: make herself more important 2: hurt those that had the audacity to offend her. That said it doesn't excuse by ANY means the attitudes show both for and against her position that went well beyond the pale. What's more sad is at the VERY SAME conference she was offended at she made this jewel: https://twitter.com/adriarichards/status/312265091791847425. Reeks of hypocrisy.
Right, so you wish to tax for potential gains. Do you get refunds of losses? I mean they want to take unrealized gains (that you may not have cash for) so you get money back for the unrealized losses (that the government may not have).
So, he gets a loan with the collateral of said loan is his stock.
He's going to have to pay off that loan some how. If he forfeits the stock, it's counted as sold and he owes taxes on that. If he pays off the loan with other money he likely has already paid taxes on that. So I'm not seeing the huge issue here.
I give up; how did they counter his mutant healing factor?
A very good mohel with an adamantium knife.
Sorry to ruin a joke
My invite took about a week. I did not receive any other email (or at least, nothing made it past my spam filters) from them except the invitation when I could register.
Only the free version has ads. You pay the $5 or $10 per month the ads go away. Also unlike radio where the songs are sent to you, you pick which songs to listen to. At least that's the audio ads. I dunno about the banner ads they also have. I don't even notice them as once I've picked the music I'm listening to, I put something else on the screen.
Except where instead of paying taxes you are on the dole.
Nation spanning business blowing their minds?
The British East India Company basically ruled India starting in the 1750s. There's your "nation spanning" company right there. Though it most assuredly had a real world presence (and military) in it's area.
How is it retarded?
IPv4 addresses were fairly easy to remember. just four blocks of up to three digits. But IPv6? 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334 is not a number I'd want to bother remembering for my gadgets.
Hell even with IPv4 and fiddling with devices it got annoying remembering the numbers and setting up the ip address again. A router with DHCP server and name services installed made it laughably easy to just call my devices by their names be it manufacturer supplied or one supplied by the dubious grace of the owner.
Nazis....Terrorists....Same thing right?
Answer me this then. What if I wanted to watch pictures of people of adequate age that are completely inadequately clothed for the climate? Or send out millions of email marketing messages? Both are speech...so why can't I?
That said, I don't think this blockage was deliberate, looks like it was a technical hicup on the website's part where they changed servers and a re-whitelisting process for the firewall.
So the question you might want to ask is if a filtering package is legit for a government to have on their networks. If so where do you draw the line?
I imagine both. But the USSR did have a lot of firsts compared to the USA
Ah, but what if one visits a country where using marijuana is legal and partakes? Said person will have violated no laws, but will fail a drug test. By your example that person would be fired.
