Submission + - Where is YouTube's million dollar to fight for fair use?

eporue writes: Last year YouTube announced https://publicpolicy.googleblo... that they were going to help creators with one million dollars to help with the legal fees in cases where fair use was being abused in the site. Still, one year later, no reports on how that money has been used, and the copyright war is at its worst. I got a channel deleted after 3 years when I got 3 consecutive strikes in a week (coincidence?) https://www.youtube.com/public...

Submission + - Free Software & Internet Show Communism Possib (dailykos.com)

CATINTHEHAT writes: Probably because he didn't get what he really wanted for Christmas, on January 5 1991, Finnish computer science graduate student Linus Torvalds went out and bought himself an IBM PC. He then proceeded to waste the next month playing Prince of Persia before he began in earnest the work that resulted in the first iteration of what became the Linux kernel. While this means that Linux is now entering it's 20th year, the Free Software Movement is significantly older. Rooted in the hacker culture of the 1970's, it dates its formal beginnings to Richard Stallman and the founding of the GNU Project in 1983. The development of the Free Software Movement has been inextricably intertwined with the development of the Internet. Free Software could never have obtained the force that it has, had it not been able to utilize the power of the Internet to unite developers from around the world in massive programming projects.
