I'll have one ....
In a shade of "Invisible" please. To match the machine.
Oh, and don't even try paying ME to take one.
Women Against Men? Just asking.
Re: You mean...
Nah, chicken chow mein, rice and noodles delivered to your workplace at lunchtime.
Re: How sexist
Should be interesting, there's little more amusing than seeing two women having a good ole bitch and tug with each other.
Re: Opportunistic Cunt
Personally, i think the "opportunistic" was not really required.
You also have to admire Mr W Hague don't you, persisting with the "let's export arms to Syrian terrorists", get this, "to save civilians".
Not unlike us paying lip service to the UN Resolution on Libya.
Re: <Polite applause>
On the other hand what are politicians trying to do with this tax by intimidation stuff?
Award themselves a f***ing huge and utterly undeserved pay rise.
Not to replace those excessive expense claims they can no longer make, oh noes.
Re: But they are required
The UK government can't have it both ways though.
On the one hand, they say we are now an IP economy ( ie we have little left to sell) and that IP has considerable value.
On the other, government taxes are hammered when others also recognise the high "value" of IP, especially when they ship that value out to low or non-existent tax economies.
One simple question.
If prima facie "free" services are damaging, hugely damaging, the world economy, then why is access to The Register free?
Try charging us all £100/year* and see what that does to your own level of business/employment.
* other charging levels, values of worth are available
"Who's getting paid a decent wage? Hint: Not the musician"
"Kantar/Ofcom are keen to promote........ I bet they are, *themselves* is my guess, i bet their employees are hardly struggling by on £10k a year.
And why not play the politicians at their own game on these Gov't backed surveys?
Mr Punter/Freetard : "Have you ever made any unauthorised download?"
Punter : "I don't use e-mule, no"
ps whenever i read "Kantar" in an article my belief in the credibility of the data plummets to near zero.
Will it really be a level playing field?
Are "Brick and Mortar" stores with a turnover of less than $1m currently exempt from collecting sales taxes?
Honestly, isn't it time to give it a well earned rest with these ridiculous "pseudo-units".
Meaningless shite most of the time.
The end of Cloud services?
Surely it's the end of any and all Cloud services?
The Judge is saying that it is impossible to transfer any music file, every transfer is a NEW file created from the existing. So what is the difference is a storage/Cloud service doing the same with my files? They must be making "new" and unauthorised copies also.
So every single media file stored in the Cloud ( ie legit services ) must have prior authorisation from the copyright holders. Yeah, that's gonna work fine isn't it?
On that note, i wrote to CBS records back in the 70's to ask "permission" to copy an Lp to tape to play in the car. I'm still waiting. The b*st*rds could've at least replied.
Do i understand this correctly....
The manager of a Company whose primary reason for locating in Ireland, never mind Cork, is to pay as little or no tax as possible, is complaining that there are few services made available to them?
Stop whinging and re-locate somewhere else then. Oh and pay fair dues.
re Get your hands on one of these.
I have one under my hall stairs, in good condition, in it's original polystyrene box.
Enjoyed using it at the time, i remember designing/programming a good golf game, ( one hole per tape though!) but with so few sold there was little else available to support the machine or programming.
And as stated earlier, work began to buy the IBM PC/Lotus 1-2-3 combination.
IANAL, or indeed a Judge, but it seems simple to me,
the guy hasn't copied anything, at all, he has merely moved legally purchased books from A to B.
I suspect eBay wouldn't have been too happy with a contrary result either..
Presumably he has other costs too...
such as licence fees for the use of the "property "of others e.g. images of Dortmund Football Club?
Here you go, a Groupon Coupon for ...
50% off a Paragraph Writing Course.
and then some, ;-)
Here you go, think you'll be needing one of these .......
That is all.
Let's hope they price the "goods" appropriately.
After reading recently that Antigua and Barbuda can take this action until they have "recovered" the value of $3bn or so, let's hope that they price the "IP goods" at a reasonable rate.
Hmmmm, let's say $0.00001 per track and $0.00010 per film. That should take them a while.
Good ole WTO i say.
Re: Masters of backfire
Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Algeria ......
