What a horrible example of how not to behave as a decent human being.
Agreed. Abelson should be ashamed of himself.
You're one of my 3 favorite lawyers, the other two being the lady who handled my divorce and the man who handled my bankruptcy.
Great that you found good people to handle those important things.
Maybe to you 4channers it is, troll, but NYCL is well known and greatly respected here at slashdot. So go back to reddit and leave us grownups alone.
Hey buddy, you watch your mouth when you're talking about NYCL!
All riggghhhhtttt. Thanks Amicus
No... I think people want something in between 70 words and 56 pages.
Oh. OK. How many words do they want?
It does seem insane. I mean how can the court not see that this case is clearly about killing vimeo and by extension video sharing sites. How can they expect all employees to be 100% diligent. It's never going to happen. If the only option to adhere to Safe Harbor is to have google class content filter Youtube is going to be the only game in town in the US.
The legal fees alone are the killer. Veoh won every round, but had to go out of business due to the legal fees.
Maybe it's not about killing Vimeo, but rather making it "play nice" the way YouTube has: Pay for sync licensing of the music and support the licensing costs with ads.
In my experience, their primary goal in every instance is to put people out of business, if at all possible. YouTube has been 'playing nice' with them for many years, but they haven't dropped the pending case.
The blog post linked from TFS is a brief (~70 word) summary of the recent development with no links to other posts on your blog for the background on the story, only the big PDF of the decision.
The decision, IMHO, gives you what you need to know about the facts of the case in order to understand the significance of the decision. 56 pages is enough reading in my view, for our purposes. If you want more you can go on PACER and get hundreds of additional pages from the case file.
I clicked on this story because I was interested in the original topic, but this whiny, defensive stuff is way more interesting.
Haha, way to drive people away
Well he shouldn't call something "obscure" just because he's too lazy to read it, and wants someone else to tell him what it said.
So what's the backstory behind this for those of us who dont read obscure blogspot blogs.
Obscure? You calling my blog obscure?
There is no "backstory". Just read the front story.
