If genetics didn't matter to the parents, they would simply adopt a child. If they are paying for IVF they clearly care about having a child that is genetically theirs.
It's an even bigger cluster-fuck than that. What about the Indian man's parental access rights? The child is his. I don't know the legal situation in Singapore, but when stuff like this has happened in the UK there had to be an adoption by the husband of the mother, and a legal request to change the father's name on the birth certificate.
Also, the Indian man's wife/girlfriend has been made a cuckquean. Seems like they would have some standing to sue too.
30% doesn't seem like enough, really. Say they decide to try again, their costs have now nearly doubled, not to mention the physical strain of another pregnancy. When the child grows up it might have a claim too. It will all require on-going legal fees too...
I hope that the court requires the clinic to put some system in place to ensure continued payments, even if it goes out of business.
On the flip side, as a developer I don't want the hassle of supporting every old, weird confusion forever just to keep the two people in the world who use it happy. Especially if it's open source and I'm doing it in my free time.
If you want that kind of longevity, find some commercial vendor who offers it, or pay someone to support you. It sucks but you can't expect people to work for free for you.
It's it obvious? This seems to be implying that 4chan is full of SJW hackers and their useful idiot script kiddies. The justice they want might be justice for the oppressed straight white male, but none the less...
For this argument to be compelling, you have to demonstrate that there was no alternative to coal. That doesn't seem to be the case, it was just the cheapest and most readily available option at the time.
Also you have interface complexity. Adding these features requires some way to use the features, possibly including configuration options, menu items, hotkeys and so on. Prior to the Ribbon, Microsoft tried to fix this in Word by hiding all the menu items you had not used yet, so you'd never know those features were there to be used. My boss constantly asks me to remove menu items and "simplify" but he never has any answers on where he thinks users should go to access those features if they're no longer in the menu. Relevant Dilbert.
Since a large number of "hand-wringing concerned citizens" are convinced that all hackers are in it for the money, then it's good to have research that confirms to non-techies what techies have always known at a gut level.
Copyright is for the profit of the creator
No, copyright is for promot[ing] the progress of science and the useful arts. Enabling the creator to profit is only a means to that end.
So what? Merely being a derivative work is not a sufficient condition to make it "illegal;" it should have been ruled to be Fair Use.
On the one hand, is expect their lobbying budget to grow no matter who won. They are growing companies after all.
Trump and the Republicans gets special attention because of their policies on the internet and science. Also because Trump is relatively easy to influence - Shi Jinping made him do a 180 on NK in just ten minutes!
Yes, that bit. In her talk she addresses the claim directly by pointing out that although you lose 100 points when you murder the innocent strippers, you get 100 points back as soon as you hide their corpses in the convenient chests placed right behind them.
You should go play the game before you make a bigger ass out of yourself
Perhaps you should take your own advice...
Anyway, even if she was wrong, which she isn't, it's a trivial detail unrelated to the main point she was making at the time.
I'll ask about the debate. I doubt they will go for it, so if you know of any other venues online where we can have a moderated debate let me know.
Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
