Labour to oppose 'Henry VIII powers' being used to rewrite EU laws | Politics | The Guardian
[ no moderation, moderation is gone. Global Britain is here. 'indyref2 wil happen one way or another. no opposition and no say will infuriate Scots even more eventually ] It is expected that this will involve extensive use of “Henry VIII powers” – laws allowing ministers to change primary legislation (government bills) using secondary legislation (orders that go through parliament with little or no scrutiny). [...] Corbyn said Labour would oppose handing ministers such extensive powers when the House of Commons votes on the great repeal bill.

Could pro-Remain MPs and peers scupper Brexit? - BBC News
Although the former chancellor Ken Clarke and the former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg have told the BBC that they are prepared to vote against invoking Article 50, enough Remainers are saying they would respect the result of the referendum and vote to start the process of leaving the EU. The government would not lose this vote.
More likely is delay - rather than destruction - of Brexit. [...] And many pro-Remain unelected peers might be less squeamish than MPs about voting against Article 50. //&!

CrazyRussianHacker, Plagiarist and DMCA abuser! #WTFU // // 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 ]

MPs face fight for a seat in 2020 - BBC News
numbers vary wildly, from 21,769 in the Western Isles (Na h-Eileanan Siar) to 108,804 on the Isle of Wight. The Conservatives feel particularly aggrieved by this, since urban seats tend to have fewer voters, and are more likely to have Labour MPs, which can mean it takes fewer votes to elect a Labour MP than it does a Conservative one (their more suburban and rural seats tending to have bigger populations). This has been an unintended side-effect of trying to respect both local geography and traditional boundaries. Parliament says in future constituencies must have 74,769 voters (the number calculated according to the latest UK population). The commission can deviate by up to 5% to take account of geography and tradition, but voter numbers will be the main criteria. Smaller Commons The second change is the next House of Commons will be smaller. Honouring a pledge in the Conservative manifesto, there will be 600 MPs not 650. In England, that means 501 constituencies, 32 fewer than now.

Creative Commons Torpedoes Copyright Industry Lies - TorrentFreak
The first falsehood is that authors, makers, and inventors must be paid for anything to be created at all. This lie is actually rather obscene coming from an industry which has deliberately created structures that make sure 99.99% of musicians never see a single cent in royalties: 99% of good musicians are never signed by a label, and of those who are, 99% never see a cent in royalties. So it’s quite obscene arguing that culture must be paid for, when this very industry makes sure that less than one artist in ten thousand get any money for their art.

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. & backing-off

Quentin Tarantino faces $100m copyright claim over Django Unchained | Film | The Guardian
Two scriptwriters have launched legal action against Quentin Tarantino, alleging that his 2012 film Django Unchained infringes the copyright of their screenplay Freedom, according to The Wrap. In the suit, Tarantino – along with the Weinstein Company and Columbia Pictures, which produced and distributed the film – Oscar Colvin Jr and Torrance J Colvin call Tarantino “an admitted thief”, quoting him as saying “I steal from every single movie ever made.” They say they submitted their screenplay to the William Morris Agency, which discussed Tarantino as a possible collaborator, and that the overlap of ideas and characters from their script goes beyond coincidence.

Bundesverfassungsgericht: Moses Pelham gegen Kraftwerk - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dürfen Musiker kurze Fetzen aus fremden Liedern übernehmen, ohne um Erlaubnis zu fragen? Darum streiten Kraftwerk und Rap-Produzent Moses Pelham seit Jahren durch alle Instanzen. Nun trafen sie sich vor dem Bundesverfassungsgericht. [...] Es gebe zwar "unterschiedliche Rechtspraktiken", erklärte Florian Sitzmann, Professor an der Pop-Akademie Baden-Württemberg, aber das sogenannte "Source-Clearing" sei "im Prinzip möglich", auch wenn dabei "kreatives Schaffen erschwert" und "viel Energie verschleudert" werde. Er kenne eine aktuelle Produktion, "da sitzt der Rechtsanwalt mit dem Rapper im Studio", und gebe laufend Stellungnahmen ab, ob etwas noch mehr verfremdet oder die Zustimmung Dritter eingeholt werden muss.

Google offers YouTube copyright support - BBC News
YouTube owner Google says it will help fund up to $1m (£650,000) in legal fees for some content creators who have received copyright takedown notices. It will step in if it feels their material is considered to be fair use. However the firm admitted that only a handful of people have been chosen to benefit from this support. Copyright holders are able to make requests to Google - or other sites - to take down content under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). However there are exceptions to the law, which vary around the world but can include the use of other material for the purposes of commentary and parody. If a small portion of somebody else's work is used in this context, or in news reporting or for teaching purposes in the US, it can be exempt from copyright legislation.

Evel proposals risk turning Commons into quasi-English parliament, MPs told | Politics | The Guardian
[Evel - English vote for english laws] [ Cameron's quick, not thought through, fix to get MPs along with The Vow and further Devolution to Hollyrood ] Denouncing the proposals as a “constitutional outrage”, the shadow leader of the Commons, Angela Eagle, argued that the government was “more interested in pursuing a partisan procedural fix rather than working to keep the union together”. She went on to accuse the Tories of putting narrow party interests first. “It is the case that the government’s changes will turn their slim majority of 12 into something over three figures if Scottish and Welsh MPs are to be prevented from voting. &! &! // &!
