Unfortunately,

Australia doesn't have a mandated freedom of speech law as it would be recognised elsewhere in the world, so any freedom of speech based defence - wont fly.

Facebook's Eduardo Saverin: I'm not a tax-dodger

Re: Your one of us, or one of them.

Part of his reasoning, is probably the simple desire to buy a home in the country he has chosen to live in for the last several years.

A non citizen of Singapore, can not own property there.

Remains the property of NASA....

I thought anything abandoned or lost at sea, became the property of whoever salvages it, when they do....

Surely this would qualify as abandoned at sea.

by that logic

the the owners of Megaupload are innocent, because they themselves didnt actually upload copyrighted material. Yet the US can force New Zealand into arresting them and extradite them to face charges in the US.

E-book reader sales to boom as prices plunge

ZagZee

and you can pick up all of those free, for any reader via the Project Gutenburg.

Amazon still rips you off, is a common complaint, since despite the fact they advertise that you can send books to friends after you have read them, over 90% of them cant due to the deal they have with the book publishers. When you then look at most recent releases, which are the same price as printed or $1 less at best, it starts to seem a little rude.

Tom Clancy, Locked On, for eg, is actually more expensive on Kindle than the hard cover (ok, by only 19c) but you cant pass it on to another kindle user after you have read it.

Michael Dell declines to eat his Apple (humble) pie

ZagZee
Stop

It is worth remembering

that Jobs sold all of the Apple shares that he acquired when he returned to Apple,as soon as he could.

He himself didn't even foresee the success he would eventually turn Apple into.

Google cops €100k French spank in Street View slurp outrage

Not sure about in the EU....

..... but most places in the world, an unsecured WiFi connection is considered to be a public access point and any data sent over it to be "in the public domain" (same as posting it to a Blog site for eg).

I haven't seen anything, anywhere saying that Google were brute forcing WiFi encryption keys in order to grab this data.

So, people kicking up a stink because they are too stupid, or are unwilling to use secured services like the encryption that ever WiFi router has built in, deserve no claim to privacy in my mind.

Sorry France - But I think you need to fix your laws on this one.
