Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Lori, I've failed you. Tell what my alms shall be. :( Steven King has the power of his publisher and the lawyers to stop any piracy. Big companies also have their stuff protected in trade laws. Jello Biafra doesn't have the same arsenal. He couldn't sue if he wanted to. AND THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WI...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

All we see are camel jockeys. As someone with a fair number of friends and colleagues who hail from all over the Middle East, I'll attest that this is so racially loaded a phrase that had you said this aloud to any of them, you would probably have crawled away after your beating wondering how many ...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Who makes out better with copyright laws, Steven King or someone like Jello Biafra? Lori, I'm going to go after this one. Not that this is a teaching moment - someone has to want to learn for those to work - but because it needs to be said. Frank: if you're really asking the question above, then I ...

Re: Sounds of Evil: the Metal Thread

Fast-forward to 2006, when Dave Rabbit made his comeback in Iraq. No foolin'.

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

You keep saying "it helps the public" but have NEVER ANSWERED how the INABILITY TO MAKE ONE'S OWN COPY hurts the public. I wouldn't have a copy. The works would be at the Library of Congress, they could make a special site. And yet another duck of a question asked. And that's enough keyst...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Frank: The search function for the pavvy/boards disagrees with your memory as well. Never has Harlan opined that he would have been better off as a plumber. You remember it? Go find it. Burden of proof is on you. As for the other, that's just another excuse for petty thieves, another endorsement of ...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

I do remember a certain writer saying that he would have been better off a plumber. Well, if by "a certain writer" you're alluding to Harlan, then yet again, your memory collides with history, and history eats your lunch: (Interviewer)What else do you tell them when they want writing advi...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Public domain does not mean anybody makes money from it. Public means you can use the charactors [sic], but the original work can be seen or read. Not sold. Whoever gave you that idea is someone you should STOP listening to, because that's grossly incorrect versus how things actually work. And if y...

Re: THE DOCTOR...is in

It seems they're taking great pains to make him come across as a moral imbecile, entirely dependant on Clara to understand basic right and wrong, let alone the higher morality all his prececessors subscribed to. If it's part of the overall season arc (I'm behind several episodes - back on "Lis...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

Nowhere have I ever said people should be allowed to steal In a word? Bullshit. You have said the following pertaining to excusing stealing: The only police protection would be against big time pirates. Little downloaders would be left alone. This is my stance. I support going after big pirates, no...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Another position where I get no respect: Anarchism. Not sure how this translated over from the Pavilion; but I would note that respect is one of those things that's earned, not simply advanced. Anyone can become an expert on a topic. That just requires being well-versed. A respected expert in a fie...
