Germany Denies Seizure of MegaUpload Assets

Disclaimer – This Post is Mostly Editorial

While I do not endorse, encourage or in any shape or form endorse piracy, I extend that “unendorsement” to include any illegal activity.  I also consider illegal search and seizure and a lack of due process equally illegal.  I also believe one is innocent until proven guilty.

You are free to form your own opinion about Kim Dotcom and this entire MegaUpload issue.  I am pretty sure that some illegal activity did occur at MegaUpload.  However, I do not believe that all of the activity was illegal, nor do I have any information as to whether most of the activity was illegal.  Nonetheless, by shutting down and entire server, I am certain people who used the site completely legitimately were harmed as well.

RIAA Lobbyist, Drafter of DMCA, Now Judge in Patent Troll Cases

Yeah, you read the headline right.  While I am not surprised to hear about such a tactic, I am still appalled.  According to Mike Masnick at TechDirt:

We’ve written about judge Beryl Howell a few times before. She’s the recently-appointed judge whose immediate job prior to that was as a lobbyist for the RIAA. Before that, she worked for the Judiciary Committee and was apparently a key player in drafting the DMCA. It seems pretty damn clear that she holds a strong viewpoint on the nature of copyright law and copyright infringement — but that hasn’t stopped her from taking those cases, even when her rulings appear to be exactly the opposite of nearly every other court. For example, while most courts have been throwing out copyright trolling lawsuits for improper joinder, Judge Howell had no problem with the practice and ordered various ISPs to cough up names based solely on IP addresses.

I wonder if the Pussy Riot trails inspired any of this sham version of justice?  Honestly, judges, lawyers, and politicians, this is why the public is becoming more and more sympathetic to organizations like Anonymous.  If the “legitimate” government and court systems become a scam only to serve lobbyist, corporations, and the élite, should you not expect a revolution?  How could this judge, having any semblance of mental stability, NOT remove himself from the case due to a conflict of interest? Are we supposed to believe that this is some type of justice and not simply a guise for corporate coersion and collection?

Starting it off with and featuring Christmas Music, Wish Background from Kevin MacLeod. After the nice 20 minute background track, we went to our first story: This week we will discuss Go Daddy, SOPA, Google Googles and more.

 

Boycott Makes Go Daddy Change It’s Stance on SOPA

After many people complained and many transferred domains away from the company, ARS Technica received a statement from Go Daddy. According to the post at ARS, part of it read:

“Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation—but we can clearly do better,” Warren Adelman, Go Daddy’s newly appointed CEO, said. “It’s very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait. Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it.”

In a related post, CNET reports that 21,000 domains were transferred from Go Daddy in a single day. The same article also states that the next loss, due to how many still transfered in, was only 1,020 domains.

Below are some links suggested by people in IRC at geekshed.net #indienation

Back to Christmas Music. To start it off Derek K. Miller:

  • What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
  • We Three Kings

Then from Calvin Owens (Mevio)

  • Merry Christmas Baby
  • The Christmas Song

Did HP “Mitigate” the Printer Flaw?

Remember late in November when we debated whether the HP laser jet printer flaw was real? According to a post CNET Security, HP has “Mitigated” the flaw. As the article states, mitigate means “to make less severe or painful” As we speculated back in November, the article states a lawsuit was filed against HP claiming that they were aware of the flaw and released the product anyhow. HP is still stating that there are no reports of the printers being exploited in the wild.

Back to Music

Hi Tech Eye Wear from Google

They will be branded “Google Goggles”… CNET has a story about some spectacular spectacles reportedly in the works by Google. They would enhance your view with information about your location and display it in 3D . The article also mentions that Apple is working on a similar product. The story, however, is speculative for they are only rumors and Google won’t comment on rumors.

More music:

The New Cold War, Patents

Gone are the days of Nike missiles, bomb shelters and mutually assured destruction.. or are they? An article at ARS Technica, claims they involve trolls and lawsuits.

Yahoo Odd News has a story about a  vanity license plate being denied by the authorities in Nebraska.  The plate requested was “NE 420”.  It refers to an unofficial holiday dedicated to pot smoking.  That day is annually on April 20th. The plate was requested by an attorney who is in favor of the legalization of marijuana.
