If IMDB is going to post ages of people for whom age is a crucial factor in their career, they better be absolutely damn sure they are getting it right.
The fix for that is to allow the actor to demand a correction if the information is wrong, not ban the display of age entirely.
Bad law bring it to the Supreme Court and get it overturned. IMDB probably has mega money from all that advertising they run on their site. They have plenty of money for a lawsuit
There's something wrong when you need "plenty of money" in order to assure your rights aren't violated. We need to modify the system where, if you challenge a bad law and prevail, you get your legal costs reimbursed.
You're not a taxi service but taxis are potential competitors. Are the like of Uber and Lyft starting to drop the veneer that they don't occupy the same service space as taxi companies? Or are they going to continue with the double speak?
It's not a difficult concept. If I'm a television broadcaster I'm not a movie theater, a video game, a chessboard, or the internet, but all of those are competitors for my customers' attention.
This is a massive sector for unelected officials to rewrite.
It needs to be rewritten. It's past time to turn the internet (into a dumb pipe) and even cellular service into a public utility, just like the land line. If Congress won't do it, the courts must. And if they don't, we need to put the initiative on the ballot. We endure lousy service only because of public apathy.
I flew in the era when airlines were regulated. Fares, routes, it was all controlled by the federal government, and guess what? It cost a fortune to fly anywhere. Sure, it was great that my employer-paid seat was on a half-populated plane where I could stretch out on the seats, but if I were going somewhere on my own dime, I'd either be driving or Greyhounding it, because I couldn't afford the 'luxury' of flying. Those were also the days pre-Carterfone decision where it was illegal to attach your own devices to 'your' phone line, and long distance calls were expensive as hell. That's the kind of crap regulation was giving us: expensive, limited, and inflexible. And that's the kind of world you'll get if you attain your fantasy of internet and cell services treated as public utilities.
150 years ago nobody had ever flown, ever. So stfu and accept that past performance is not indicative of future performance. If everyone was like you we'd all still be living in straw huts because at some point in time nobody had ever lived in a wood framed house, ever.
Except, unlike communism/socialism, once those things were tried, they were found to work and to be superior. You're welcome to keep trying to perfect that which so many others have failed at, but do it where those who don't want to participate have to suffer the consequences along with you.
What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
