Distribution Under Copyright Laws

Another skirmish in the fight to control the information people use to make life-changing financial decisions about us.

Hmmmmm… guess I got the copyright laws wrong. Could have sworn the law was that it is illegal to distribute copyrighted material. You could possess it or obtain it, just not distribute without permission.

  • 6/30/2003 10:27 AM by OEnone: copywrite laws are very weird, with every printed thing.  I know there is a lot of weird twists in the copywrites of music, and printed or otherwise documented music.  *shrug*  Someone got paid the big bucks to make those laws turn like that..*LOL*
  • 7/1/2003 9:57 AM by joyfulgurrrl: To sue or be sued…that is the question.  When labels start pursuing individuals for downloading an mp3, how do you think it affects their reputation?  Would you continue purchasing from that company if they came after you?  Just because you download an mp3, does that mean you will NEVER purchase another cd from them?  When does sharing music become stealing music?  How is that any different than me letting you borrow a cd, or even going to a party and playing something I thought was fantastic in front of 200 people?  I gag at these laws. — Damn, I’m copying this post to my site… 🙂

My bro tipped me off to a comic named “8-Bit Theater” which is a Final Fantasy spoof. Great stuff.

Very great stuff.

Praying to the weather gods…

for the rain to get here so the humidity will drop.

 


Auto-responders are a bad idea. Do you really want to be telling everyone that sends you email, “Hey, I am not home!” Couple this with the fact that your name in a phone book provides your address and a phone number to confirm whether or not you are at home.

  • 6/18/2003 11:02 PM by OEnone: I never answer the phone anyway.  So its a toss up if I am home, or not…

Cell Phone Ban

Anyone wanna make a bet that cell phones will soon be banned from near sporting events, political events, federal buildings, power plants, water treatment centers, and airports? Read this before making your choice.


I expected to need to respond to at least 30 emails today, my day off, at work. Only, there were a measly 6. Must have got things working okay? Or they took the day off? Probably the latter.

  • 6/17/2003 5:16 PM by joyfulgurrrl:I didn’t check my email for a month.  I had 95% spam mail and they blocked my account (HOTMAIL) but I can’t seem to filter enough out.  GRRRR…Noticed the change in color…better. 🙂  Of course, you probably did this ages ago.As far as “guys” go, I’m wary.  I am wary of men, period.  He is the first “guy” I’ve dated in years and I’m getting pretty fed up with the BS.  On the other hand, I keep HOPING that he’ll change or grow up or something…Cheers to hoping!
