Submission + - Will SiriusXM Allow Free Streaming of Live Show

pallmall1 writes: Art Bell wants SiriusXM to allow his new show "Dark Matter" to be streamed live on the internet. He would stream the live show from and "kick butt". Art doesn't believe that live streaming will cause any loss of SiriusXM subscribers. They are hoping to get an answer from SiriuxXM bosses as soon as Monday for what Art acknowledges would be essentially a new business model. Will SiriusXM go for it?

Art makes an important announcement concerning the future of the show. He’s concerned that the SiriusXM streaming mobile app and web player are not up to the job (1001 errors) and suggests that we ( serve the program LIVE using other Internet streaming protocols (Icecast), to allow a more favorable listening experience and to allow the streaming of the LIVE program for FREE all over the world.

I think that you are right about the justifications being a bunch of crap. And here's the dilemma:

... so that we can disrupt their plans and prevent them from bringing harm to innocent Americans.

Just who is deciding who is innocent? They decide who is innocent, and do so without the constitutionally guaranteed protections for the innocent.
I agree with the poster above and oppose the surveillance state.

Am I still innocent now? Was I ever? ...

Since they use git ... I would say that would be what happened.

That's interesting, because the page you linked shows recent work desicribed as "Fix page title for JSON Functions and Operators." Couple that with the fact that the Slashdot summary has a link to a Parity News page that contains a link to the Postgresql announcement, and the Parity News link is loaded with javascript in the url.

I wonder if Parity News is trying to demonstrate the Postgresql flaw?

DOJ Often Used Cell Tower Impersonating Devices Without Explicit Warrants 146

Via the EFF comes news that, during a case involving the use of a Stingray device, the DOJ revealed that it was standard practice to use the devices without explicitly requesting permission in warrants. "When Rigmaiden filed a motion to suppress the Stingray evidence as a warrantless search in violation of the Fourth Amendment, the government responded that this order was a search warrant that authorized the government to use the Stingray. Together with the ACLU of Northern California and the ACLU, we filed an amicus brief in support of Rigmaiden, noting that this 'order' wasn't a search warrant because it was directed towards Verizon, made no mention of an IMSI catcher or Stingray and didn't authorize the government — rather than Verizon — to do anything. Plus to the extent it captured loads of information from other people not suspected of criminal activity it was a 'general warrant,' the precise evil the Fourth Amendment was designed to prevent. ... The emails make clear that U.S. Attorneys in the Northern California were using Stingrays but not informing magistrates of what exactly they were doing. And once the judges got wind of what was actually going on, they were none too pleased:"

That's just using a DIFFERENT flawed system, not fixing the root cause.

From the point of view of the big media cartels and their Obamasite supporters, Six Strikes is not a bug, it's a *feature*.

Welcome to Obama's vision of the future. Six Strikes is just a glimpse.
