@mathewi But I wasn’t arguing that. I was arguing that it’s not settled law you have to do a fair use test in advance. I’m not a journalism professor at Columbia but I’m pretty damn sure you just made a straw man argument.

@riScorpian @NetopiaEUA @elliotharmonc @kylotant @AnnemarieBridyu @EFFa @mathewil @jimmy_walesl @JeremyLittauy @torrentfreak @STARZs @crispinhunto @neilturkewitzrry the statement is 1) irrelevant 2) performing fair use test in advance not exactly true. It depends which federal circuit you are in. But a copyright litigator would know that.

The copyleft are idiots. No speech is being censored. This is piracy and its still illegal. Further you could say that @STARZ is defending itself against forced speech. Being forced to distribute expression against its will. Lets face it the Copyleft = Google https://t.co/O3XptWqcPU

My sister going through some of my moms old photos. Found this. If you look closely that is a very young Marty Feldman. Probably early 1950s. Likely at Dreamland, Margate, Kent.

Although, apparently it was Joe who was nuts about her.

I would suspect there are similar issues in the music world. Major agencies have certainly developed subsidiaries and other ventures which could pose similar problems. https://t.co/gujqXDb1o0

6/x so basically the fed government forced us (songwriters) to license to Spotify at below market rates (See US Copyright Office CRB) essentially subsidizing the companies growth for the last 10 years. And now they've gone public they want to pay songwriters LESS. Fuck you.

19/c The entire tech world is dominated by a faux progressive cyber- libertarian ideology. “No property rights (IP/Privacy) for you my friend. No regulation for me.” No taxes either. I’m amazed at how many well educated folks out there refuse to see this.

22/x I’m not an anti-capitalist. Quite the opposite. But what Spotify/Google/Amazon represents is new kind of monopoly that is incompatible with liberal democracies. It’s not just amoral, it’s nihilistic and instinctively seeks to destroy anything that does not grease its path...

Hah! randomly plays race card on me while I’m testifying on fair use and lyric websites. My testimony is a public record. Check it. Nothing about being a hip hop expert. I only mention hip hop in passing. She’s just a Harvard trained troll.
