But those who follow their own conscience, and the principles of reason. It is independent through (see also uk, us media landscape). hated political passivity - do nothing to put an end to xyz, although happening to have an opinion. but not acting on it.

CrazyRussianHacker, Plagiarist and DMCA abuser! #WTFU
.youtube.com/results?search_query=fair+use // .youtube.com/results?search_query=DMCA // So when I first made a video showing that CrazyRussianHackers idea about using dry ice for an air conditioner was basically suicidal, I really didnt think anything would come of it. Then recently he filed a DMCA takedown of my video. This resulted in a strike against my account and me losing access to certain features.

Now thats a special brand of idiot who makes a video about a suicidal way to chill the air, then files a baseless copyright takedown of the only warning about how dumb that idea is. Especially against a guy like me who has a history of fighting DMCA abuse! [ people have yet to be sued in court for DMCA abuse, it is a felony ]

A Public Service To The Industry From Attorney Marc Randazza « MikeSouth.Com
In this article, I write about how “morality” has been used to deny intellectual property rights worldwide. The adult entertainment industry should take note, because its ability to protect both its copyrights and its trademarks, world wide, are discussed in this article. If you run an adult entertainment business or frankly, any business that could find itself targeted by moralizers, you should download the article and keep it in your library.

NSA's Hacker-in-Chief: We Don't Need Zero-Days To Get Inside Your Network | Motherboard
“I think a lot of people think the nation states are running on this engine of zero-days. You go out with your skeleton key and unlock the door and you're in. It's not that,” he said. “I will tell you that persistence and focus will get you in, will achieve that exploitation without the zero-days,” he continued “There's so many more vectors that are easier, less risky and quite often more productive than going down that route.”

Fine Brothers spark fury with YouTube trademark attempt - BBC News
[ protecting an entertainment format - old school TV. YT goes TV. ] 2015 applied to trademark terms "Kids React", "Adults React" & "Celebrities React", as well as the word "react" itself, which could be used to form new variations of the format. [...] a licensing scheme called React World, which they said would let other video-makers use the "react" title and assets such as their graphics and music. But the plan was negatively received by the YouTube community because so many people already make similar reaction-based videos online, using the word "react" in the title. "They had a bunch of trademarks already and nobody minded," said Jon, a YouTuber from Many A True Nerd. "But the moment they got to just the word 'react', it was just too commonly used. "People aren't sure whether they will fall foul of the trademark. "As creators, we have sympathy that you want to protect your content from being stolen - but in this case it's too far," he told the BBC. & bit.ly/1JWHDXd backing-off

'compensation will be part of discussion'. 40 times than allowable limit. // 1:11:00 - according to him, @ the current state of investigations, this was out of the engine-drivetrain-engineering/software/emissions department within VW. Was not a corporate executive decision from the top. [My 2 cents: more likely decision was made within those departments due to pressure from top to make the test pass happen. << 1:51:00]

What is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple? - Fortune
“She motivates people. She inspires people. And she is the sort of person who wants to see things succeed as a team. It’s a rare quality.” [...] Ahrendts believes the key to the company’s future is not just marvelous products, but also engaging and energizing its nearly 100,000 employees, 60% of whom now work in retail division. “If you’re going to employ people anyway,” she says, “why not make them the differentiator? They’re not a commodity.” Now that there are 459 Apple stores in 15 countries, many people have their first Apple experience inside a store—a first impression that could forever tarnish the brand if it’s not good. “Burberry was about building a relationship,” she says. “But it was always about selling an amazing product that you would have forever. Apple is just a deeper relationship with a much broader constituency. Because it’s everybody.” // apple positioned itself just above everyone else it competes w [having a margin!], but not too far up to be douchy, off-setting

SAP: Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen SAP - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Hinter den Kulissen tobt um die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Erfolgsprodukts indes seit Jahren ein erbittert und mit harten Bandagen geführter Streit, der mittlerweile auch Gerichte und Behörden in Deutschland und den USA beschäftigt. Ausgerechnet ein Mitarbeiter der internen SAP-Revision, der mit einer Untersuchung ("Audit") über den Entwicklungsprozess von Hana befasst war, wirft dem Unternehmen vor, sich bei der Entwicklung eigener Produkte wie Hana am geistigen Eigentum von Wettbewerbern wie Oracle, IBM und Teradata bedient zu haben. Der bislang unbekannte Vorgang geht aus internen SAP-Dokumenten sowie Gerichtsunterlagen hervor, [...] Für SAP sind die Vorwürfe gefährlich, denn das Unternehmen ist einschlägig vorbelastet. In den vergangenen Jahren musste es Wettbewerbern wie Oracle Chart zeigen bereits hunderte Millionen Dollar an Schadensersatz überweisen. [...] [ $25m fuer sich zu fordern war dumm. Super naive. Schweigegeld oder was? ]

>> iPlayer needs to become an international subscription business. and leverage the BBC brand (sought after and trusted, it's the last public crown jewl that actually can compete in a global market! Channel 4 or ITV can't. ) // “Their model is built on having global rights and we have got to respect that. They are a very smart, impressive bunch of people,” Cohen said. “The key thing we look at more and more is the impact of global competition rather than just in the UK where very big companies can distribute their content around the world. That is a very big challenge.”

Disney’s $4 Billion Steal — 500ish Words — Medium
Since Iger took over, Disney has made a number of key acquisitions. The three biggest are arguably the three most important deals any company has done over that span. In 2006, Disney bought Pixar for $7.4 billion. In 2009, Disney bought Marvel for $4.3 billion. And in 2012, Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion. [...] Based on nothing other than internet reaction, pent-up demand, and the fact that this new Star Wars cannot possibly be as bad as the last three, I’m going to go not-so-far out on a limb and predict that The Force Awakens makes over $2 billion worldwide at the box office. Yes, that would put it third all time behind the James Cameron tentpoles Titanic and Avatar, and ahead of both Avengers films. But I can just see it happening.

We Can't Let John Deere Destroy the Very Idea of Ownership | WIRED
In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle.” [...] General Motors told the Copyright Office that proponents of copyright reform mistakenly “conflate ownership of a vehicle with ownership of the underlying computer software in a vehicle.” [...] GM went so far as to argue locking people out helps innovation. [...] Lawmakers in Minnesota and New York have introduced “Fair Repair” legislation that assert an owner’s right to repair electronic equipment they’ve purchased. They want equal access to repair information, replacement parts, and security updates. // via bit.ly/1UliHJK

RedShark News - Could VP9 be the codec for 4K Blu-Ray?
http://www.redsharknews.com/distribution/item/1373-vp9-codec-rides-to-the-aid-of-4k - Google have oddly found themselves in a great position to capitalise on the current 4K fervour with their VP9 codec. Google weren’t really thinking about 4K when they developed VP9, it just happened to be a fact of the way the codec was written that it supports up to 16K video! In fact when asked earlier last year if they would be supporting 4K the Google folks appeared somewhat confused by why anyone would want to do that, as obviously they had been designing VP9 with YouTube in mind and were more thinking that this would be a great way of making 720p YouTube streams really viable on normal internet connections.

Economic policy: Paved with good intentions | The Economist
Although the debate [austerity] relates to the UK, I think it has a much wider resonance. And indeed, to a student of history, it has fascinating parallels; economic policy-making was rethought in the mid-1970s, but the same debates are popping up again. [...] Margaret Thatcher on ZIRP & QE "Let us print the money instead. Because what that is saying is let us quietly steal a cerain amount from every pound saved in building societies, in national savings, from every person who has been thrifty." [...] [ZIRP & QE is no free lunch - it has consequences, known and unknown, unintended.]

A Small-Business Guide to Intellectual Property - NYTimes.com
The two most precious resources for any small-business owner are time and money. That’s why when the subject of intellectual property comes up, many owners run in the other direction. They see images of expensive lawyers and use that as an excuse to ignore the topic, reasoning that it is a problem for big companies to worry about.
