Selling intellectual property
Today’s exciting patent infringement news of the day comes courtesy of Computerworld, which reports that HTC — which is being sued for patent infringement by Apple along with Motorola Mobility — filed a counterclaim yesterday before a court in Florida.
In its filing, HTC said that it had been assigned all rights, title and interest of a patent titled “Installation of network services in an embedded network server” that was originally assigned to HP. It said the same for another patent, “Method and system for central management of a computer network” that was assigned to Electronic Data Systems (EDS), which was acquired by HP in 2008.
Both patents were apparently licensed or sold to HTC through HPs program for selling intellectual property. Yes, you too can license or buy these patents, then go to court to sue anyone who seems to be even partially infringing on HP’s your intellectual property rights.
HTC, which to my knowledge has never sold a server or any server administration tools, is claiming that Apple Remote Desktop, Apple Profile Manager, and other products infringe on the former EDS patent it now owns. It’s also claiming that the “embedded network servers” exist in iOS and OS X in the form of services such as Newsstand, and that Macs and various versions of the iPhone and iPad are infringing on that HP patent.

The Chomsky-bot posits;
" . . The United States supports right-wing dictatorships in Latin America, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East ... because these are the rulers who have tied their personal political destiny to the fortunes of the American corporations in their countries..."
Undeniably true (in the 1950's) as if every other great power from Nebuchadnezzar to Leonid Brezhnev d...e is an empty demagogue of the worst kind. A negative, self-loathing, Captain Queeg, whose only joy is the hope of schadenfreude, and the joy he takes in spreading his diseased pseudo-intellectual "faith" to those unable to defend themselves from it.
i.e. unsuspecting college students.
He would be pathetic if not for the army of sycophants in his wake.
They are beyond pathetic.
So in your ethical world, the technology
Automatically makes all intellectual property (music, movies, books, mathematical theories, virtually everything in the patent office and the copyright office) free for the taking. It doesn't matter whether the people who created the intellectual property get paid at all for their product, and it doesn't matter if they tell you that it is not for free. Because you CAN take it against their wishe...e appealing to people's sense of ethics has no bearing here, the only way to keep this from happening is to never release any recorded music at all.
It seems to me that, if someone offers something for sale, and you use technology to acquire it without paying for it, you have just stolen it. You seem to be saying that, if they can't stop you from stealing it, then it isn't really stealing.
But history has shown that the far-more beneficial element in the law is a provision that provides internet service providers, hosting companies and interactive services near blanket immunity for the intellectual property violations of their users a provision responsible for opening vast speech and business opportunities realized and unrealized.
Blogs, search engines, e-commerce sites,...D owner from copying a disc theyve lawfully purchased. Because such copying can fall under the rubric of fair use, the law effectively nullifies some consumers rights.
That digital age limitation doesnt sit well with Sherwin Siy, the deputy legal director of digital-rights group Public Knowledge.
DVD copying for personal use, its time has come, Siy said in a telephone interview.
One quick google example.
Q. You talk a lot about white privilege. Why do you use that term and how do you explain it to white teachers?
"If I do well at something, nobody is going to say, "You're a credit to your race." Saying that presumes that the race that the person is a member of ordinarily doesn't do very well.
Because I am white, nobody says that about me. Yet such statements frequently surround kid...a real estate office and will more likely be shown places in "better" neighborhoods. I am also more likely to be given a better mortgage deal.
Those are examples of how white racism keeps reaping me benefits. Sometimes I am aware of it and sometimes I am not."
You state that AA limits poor Whites in America and question White Privilege here. The answer is not simply about economics.
@ Ott, I hope this isn't too buried
It is similar to anonymous taking down PSN. When consumers attack other consumers, they lose (and corporations cackle with greed and evil).
I don't know the answers to most of your questions about the removal of OtherOS. Mentioned above, I don't own consoles for the very reasons people prefer to mod them. But whether or not modders were using the hacks for piracy is relevant. I thin...n't take away Sony's living. And you can't pirate a console. You can pirate its games. Sony has the misguided belief that your property still belongs to them. No. You bought it; it's yours, and you can do what you want. They don't have to allow you onto their network (I see no problem in M$ banning modded consoles from xbox live, btw), but they can't come in your living room and boss you around.
