Good to know. Glad it was easy as that.

I, too, believe it's Fair Use, and he has a right to counterclaim. But this takes money, and the desire for a long fight, going through Discovery, showing damages, and all the other processes of tort law.
It's better to raise this issue and show that Samsung did the totally wrong thing, starting at their bad QA, bad engineering, bad process control for field testing, and an even worse procedure once the problem was found.
Corporations don't like to eat humble pie, eat crow, or whatever metaphor you'd like to use for admitting they screwed up. This is a PR disaster, IMHO.
The propagandist at work, attempts to shed decades of not-invented-here, reminiscent of the Reality Distortion Fields of Steve Jobs, and hopes, no prays that the Gartner audience will swallow it whole.
Such tortious, mind-numbing blather is uncharacteristic of an organization that desires to be judged by its actions, not its lapdog propaganda.
The secret hope: The Stock Price Soars!!!
There's NOTHING wrong with editing. Slickness is in the eye of the beholder, sometimes taking away the raw nuanced value of journalism. Other times, it takes a disjointed bunch of stuff and molds it into something discernible.
And from this, we can conclude exactly what?
While there's some truth to what you say, I have yet to see a medium where there can be a considerable amount of dust-- read that lack of trust-- in sources, coverage, attribution, and significance.
Part of the problem of media is that the public's ability to discern what's controlled media vs what's real and live and truly happening is weak at best, viz the current situation. "Follow The Money" isn't quite the best method to judge the content, although it's a good way to understand bias.
Yet there are really good journalists out there, and differing covering entities that sometimes do a really good job, only to be knee-capped by proximity to truly evil, spoon-fed lackeys of moneyed sponsors. It's not the fine print I'm really worried about, rather the capacity to present facts in a way where the chain-of-authorities for those facts can be referenced in a way that allows context. Context is key to trust.
It's freaking video. One is over the air or cable, the other one is in packets. Not a big deal. What's important is the information, and how the information was put together (sources, bias, etc.).
The First Gulf War was "livestreamed" on TV. Nothing new to see here.....
Imagine the cognitive dissonance during the next election. Or let's see, eight heteros, five homos, two unsure, what do we throw onto the billboard?
I envision a person walking with their soon to be ex while the billboard says: bought that pistol yet? Funeral arrangements? Mexico vacation?
Let me disambiguate your response.
Somehow, you have the pomposity to believe your own PR. That's not unusual.
Whether de facto, de jure, de legis, amazingly, you agree that there is a monopoly, so there's hope for you. When the TCA wrested control of communications infrastructure away from the states, who in turn made sure that they could give it up by strangling what was left of Tariff 12 and any other theories of local communications companies, this legislation was bought and paid for. Fie on you for asserting any other theory.... I watched the fleets of lawyers make the rounds of the congressional buildings in DC.
But this is also about the topic of privacy, and where DNS comes in is pretty amusing. There's a lot of $$$ being made selling DNS hit info to the miners of ads, not to mention those that extract ostensible meaningful trend data, or perhaps worse-- dark data. It's revenue based upon the emaciation of privacy, and as onerous as deep packet filtering.
Summary: yes, monopolies, yes litigious, yes they'll go kicking and screaming through the courts dragging things down for decades, no they have no interests in giving up any of their revenue streams because it took a lot of bribery/campaign contributions/"PR" to get their way and finally yes they're claws have even more entanglements whose talons will be exorcised one at a time, causing the great Satans of monopolies to scream.
And each of these clawed-in data providers will go kicking and screaming through court fight after court fight until all is won or lost, because they need the data as an extra layer of revenue.
So, you can weasel-word what you'd like, but most people have no choice in their provider, so it is a de facto monopoly, and in some cases where legislatures were bribed to inhibit/prohibit communities from doing their own networks de jure monopolies.
And once this is through the courts, then what of the DNS data they collect? What of how they actually calculate data caps, and by what means?
Consumers are pretty much f#cked when it comes to cable and broadband "service providers", their lousy services, their monopoly-ingrained mindset, and their revenue-at-all-costs stance.
Bait-and-switch? Amazon?? Oh no!!!! Never happens.
I just love it when they hard-code user/passwd in an R/O file system. Mmmm. Maybe they even salt it with a nice hash or two. Better still-- SSH certs! Yummy! Same cert on every device? A buffet!! Wowzers!!
Constant shouts of Soros are pretty silly. He's the ostensible boogeyman behind everything. I don't think he gives a fleep about the whole matter. OTOH, I know individuals that have nothing to do with corporate money that are plentifully incensed about the pipeline, and it would seem from the facts, with good reason.
Statistically, pipeline spills are up, and their damage increasing. I have no financial stake in any of it.
