Comment Excellent news (if you live or work in London) (Score 1) 1592

The UK will now need to show the world that it can cope without the EU. To achieve this it will need to make sure its financial centre (London), stays afloat.

So what will it do? Well, the obvious solution is make London as attractive as possible, to make sure all the big businesses stay in the UK. And if that means sucking the life out of the rest of the country to meet this goal, then so be it.

I'm only joking of course. London's been doing this for years already.

Even things like Wikinews at least have some element of journalism and truth to them more often that the TV channels or papers.

This is the problem I have with the Press. They have too much power and influence.

Currently, the UK is debating whether or not to remain in the EU. The UK's most popular* newspaper is telling its readers to vote out. The Press should not be allowed to influence its readers into making decisions based upon its** opinion.

* Popular != Good
** The opinion of the editor

Comment I got hit by a copyright violation (Score 1) 178

A couple of weeks ago, I got sent a copyright claim by Machinima, stating that I'd copied a portion of their video and was passing it off as my own work.

Machinima stated that I could keep the video up, but they'd keep all the revenue that it made. Nice.

Upon inspection of Machinima's claim, it turned out that not only was their video a compilation of inferior quality clips (a top 10), it was also uploaded 2 years after mine.

I disputed the claim and it was quickly dropped.

What annoyed me was how easy it was for them to bully me and YouTube simply complied. Since their video was uploaded after mine, I was very tempted to make a counter-claim for the exact same reasons.
