What I haven't seen is any report from the SHP that indicates whether the truck was making a LEGAL left-hand turn across traffic? Or was he like many a big rig driver forcing his way traffic because. well, he is BIGGER and everybody else should yield to them.
In this case the shyster IP lawyers were trying to use it as a tool to intimidate their target. These scum are only interested in one thing, $$$$$. Protection of rights is just any excuse to extort the less powerful. Wehn he agreed, they understood that he intended to fight their extortion scheme and had to take a new tact.
In the demand letter, Simond's actually quotes the appropriate legal action that they should be taking: Get an injunction. Simonds undoubtedly recognizes that their case for a copyright injunction is weak and is trying for an end run by running over s small ISP with hopes of using their acquiescence as a tool to enlist more ISP's.
Look at the CHM site, I get why Simond's is fighting mad. So they're beating up the nearest 98 pound weakling they can find in an effort to "do something NOW"
Yeah, the IT folks want it easy for THEM. The desktop computer in my classroom (I'm the teacher) gets scanned at 2:00 every Tues and Thurs and no amount of complaining, sending video of how slow my computer is running, etc will sway them them from that schedule.
These guys alway call with spoofed caller ID info. Why? Because its easy. I really can't believe that it not possible to create a REAL caller ID system. But the TELCO's will *itch about regulatory interference in their business. I say make them LIABLE for passing on bogus ID info and they will find a way to make caller id work. Calls from overseas? Just ID them as OVERSEAS calls. Co that sell spoofing services, well if the TELCO is liable, they wont allow spoofed ID on outbound trunks. They would rather profit from a BROKEN feature than actually create a working one.
I have 5 credit or debits cards in my wallet. And 1 EMV card. 1 company that takes security seriously. And whose card is that? Of course, it's the card that I use to operate the laundrymat. Not Bank of America. Not my credit union.
Try out the Gibson research DNS benchmark that will id fastest DNS for you. Double check (google) that your not picking a troublesome DNS provider (DNS redirectors, etc)
Well, mostly in the context of common experience. But at exceptional speeds and scale (subatomic) the no longer function in the expected way. Laws of conservation (mass, energy, angular momentum) would be a better example as they do seem to apply at these exceptional dimension.
