Assuming I have a right to have a file in the first place (ie. I purchased as a file) then what provision might stop me from storing said file on any given medium for my personal use?
DRMs/TPMs. It's illegal to provide the means of circumvention and TPP will make it illegal to do your own circumvention, assuming you have created your own means.
There was a case in the USA where copying to a file to a machine's memory was found to be breach of copyright.
I think we all know that if you view marriage as a worthy institution shagging around is wrong.
What about if we don't view marriage as a worthy institution? It's a crock.
It's love that's worthy, and not an institution.
Stone them all
"where he accused other people of throwing Bevan Chuang under the bus" and then at the end of the interview went on to throw her under a bloody great battleship.
David "Dredd" Harvey. He gets all the good cases.
Love your work, Craig.
before I lose my rag
Go you good thing :-)
I do appreciate your passion. But insinuating I am <insert your misogynistic misrepresentation here> because I disagree is a bit low.
I think that you may wish to consider what power government agencies across the globe have to discredit individuals before making too many snap judgements. The Cold War perfected those techniques and just because its over doesn't mean they have disappeared.
Surely it is *more* of a statement of fact than "normal speak". Evidence has been weighed up, subject to extreme scrutiny and rejected. Normal speak is like a judgement made over a few beers.
Great article. I know it's a serious topic but this:
This time, I lost a jandal in the retreat
only in a Kiwi riot :-)
isn't quite as clearly defined as the "publish it all, and let God sort it out" Cult of Wikileaks would have you believe.
Which is a libel to Wikileaks and the work they had carried out for many years. And the fact that you can make that sort of statement as fact is why I worry about the sort of article Russell has written here.
Note to self, again: Maybe I shouldn't be so abrupt in my initial comment :-)
Just on the money side of things, I am less concerned than Russell. The Grauniad is investing in growth and market share. Ask Xero what that does to cash reserves. It doesn't mean it is not able to generate revenues.
I love this quote on many levels, including Rusbridger's broad awareness of context:
"In just five days, Rusbridger said, its traffic eclipsed that of Murdoch’s national newspaper, the Australian. “We’re being a digital disrupter,” he said, smiling. “We’re doing to that market what the Huffington Post is trying to do to us.”"
It's actually what Murdoch did in the 80s with Sky TV. I think there's a pretty good future for the Guardian online, which is a good thing.
Maybe they should invest in Public Address for the NZ edition.
