Re: "Copyright infringement is theft, pure and simple"

In the USA A person is guilty of theft if he dishonestly appropriates property belonging to another.

" permanently depriving " is not required. There is also theft of service and theft of time. Example. If I take your car with permission and return it I'm, still guilty of auto theft.

Re: The U.S. should move to chip-and-PIN anyway...

Have you been to the USA?I We do have readers that chip and pin. It's credit card companies that refuse to issue chip and pin. It's mostly the small mom and pop stores that don't have chip and pin readers.

Re: Standard Windows timings

There was no need to reinstall windows. IT a simple reg edit to turn on ahci mode.

Exit all Windows-based programs.

Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.

Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV

In the pane on the right side, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.

In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.

On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

Funny, the local target I use to shop at has hand chip and pin for three years. But here is the catch find a CC in the us that used chip and pin, then find one that does it by default. Far as I'm aware only chase and amex does it in the US, but you have to ask .

One thing to remember

Theft in the US not defined as permanently depriving some one. It's merely taking some thing you are not allowed to have. Hence data theft. Now the RIAA confuses copyright/counterfeiting with theft.

There is a simple more sinister reason. In the late 90's got Congress refine come carry status. Sure if some wants access the the a telco plant they have to let them. Ifthe want access to the last mile of analog they have to let them, But that's the key analog. If the last mile is not analog so long to bad the local telcos do not have to let you have access to the last mile of IP lines

Run for the tills! Malware infected Target registers, slurped 40m bank cards

kain preacher
Bronze badge

No this is how you punish them. Target must pay off all Target cards. Any CC credit cars that were compromised Target must pay the full balance off. Regardless of were the purchase were made. In the event that the owner paid off the credit card target is responsible for all purchase 30 days of the breach or 30 days after the breach was announced. Which ever is longer. in the event that it was debit card Target must be pay all fraudulent charges. Target must refund the last 50 transaction on the debit card 30 days prior to the breach and the next 50 transaction 30 days after the breach.

Re: @Connor

Lets try a thing called alcoholic rise. If you have a short drive (lets say a mile to the bar) you can drive home and not be over the limit. With the for the next hour your bac will continue to rise. Are you following? So if the cop busts you and it takes them longer than 20 minute to get you to the station you will be over. Now you blew over the limit at the station but you were not drunk when you drove home.

Re: Public Records?

You can have those arrest records ex-ponged. In some states like California , if no charges are filed they have the option to change it to a deletion(which means you were just stopped by the cops) that rolls off after a year.

Re: Confused about time frames

The difference is the arrest date vrs the conviction date. If he was locked up that time counts towards the sentence. If he was out on bail it could of been a year before the trial started. Thus the differences.
