well, you can log the calls and record any audio that you can. Then turn it over to the local police and also submit a copy to the FBI or US Secret Service. After that, change your phone number and go on with life. ALso, file a written complaint with your phone carrier and copy that to the relevant authorities. Now, I haven't been a target myself, but I know several people that have. They took the above actions and started having some peace and quiet in their lives afterward.
Welcome to the United Soviet Socialist States of America. But wait! There's more.. FOr just a little extra safety, we will require a 2 way TV in all housing tuned to the same channel with big brother watching.
These guys surely must be kidding! I use VLC on my macbook and also on Linux. Its the only player thats entirely accessible for the blind. So what are these guys going to do? sue the entire BLC using public? I wish them luck with that!
a long time ago (in practically my other life before blindness) I used to work security. I would get infuriated when others would do similar silliness while on duty. about all I could do was document and report the problem. at that point, it would become my bosses problem.
*THIS* is precisely why we need to reform copyright laws. I figure it this way: if a song is worth only $1.00 on itunes, the record companies can only sue for that sum on individual counts. thats means that they would only be able to sue for a small fortune (say $10 million in the largest cases). this would certainly reduce the incentive form them to file such ridiculous claims.
I remember when he originally posted that video. about all I could do was
who is whipping themselves into an "idiot's frenzy" here? I expressed some concern and also pointed out how far private org's and the government will go.
anyway, I am expressing a concern here. I am not a programmer and I don't even have a PS3. I am only curious. does that make it a crime? there are some who would have you believe that it would.
hmmm, out of curiosity, I listened to the videos produced by GeoHot. doesn't matter that I was only curious as to what he was doing. I wouldn't be able to implement what he was doing anyway as I don't have a PS3 or the eyesight to use it. . so? does this mean the FBI might coming knocking on my door to ask questions or that sony might sue me just because I "viewed" the materials? IMHO, intellectual curiosity should not be considered a crime (which is what Sony and the government are trying to do).
*GROAN*GROAN* that was a baaaaaaad joke man!
well, I wish Sony all the best of luck. Once information of this type gets out on the web, its nearly impossible to remove. The problem Sony has that "reverse engineering" isn't exactly illegal. Now, they have tried this before and look where it got them: case thrown out of court because the expert witness torpedoed their case.
They might have a case for copyright infringement but with as many copies as are floating around out there, its going to start costing them more than its worth to pursue all the possible litigants.
Perhaps Sony should open source their software and get a lot of "free help" improving it. That would not only earn them increased profits, but also loads better in Public Relations credibility.
it seems that truth is being lost in all the noise from both sides here. I can't trust media matters as much as I can't trust glenn beck. both are extremist in their views and each has their own take on the "truth".
Hey! the sun is over 5 Billion years old. like us humans, it is bound to start showing its age.
