strike one.

i think kpop is korean pop music. anyway. it sucks to be in new zealand (even more than usual):

this week the new zealand government rushed through its controversial 3 strikes-style law as part of christchurch earthquake emergency legislation. this means that after being ‘suspected’ of sharing copyrighted material online three times, people may be fined and lose their internet access for six months.”

just hours before giving a speech in support of the three-strikes law which is supposed to protect the copyright holders, she (sent that tweet).

lee defended herself by saying that the songs were downloaded legally and paid for. but unfortunately for her that doesn’t mean much. as the national business review points out, when a friend makes a copy of songs that were legally bought, the recipient of the ‘gift’ is still guilty of copyright infringement.

so someone who rushed through (a frankly unimaginable piece of legislation, seriously – have you seen my hard drives?) this law is getting bitten in the ass by it. you twat.

jacqueline howett.

ugh, this was awful. i read about it on charlie’s diary and could only make it down a few of her comments before a overwhelming sense of shame (and face creasing) forced a tab close.

as he put it:

this is a beautiful example of why authors should not respond to reviews. go read, and read as many of the comments as you can cope with.

i’m not entirely sure how the egyptian government ‘forced’ vodaphone to send out text messages rallying pro-mubarak supporters. but, fuck them.

also, this driver:

seems like a double standard. does it seem like a double standard to you?

torrentfreak has a good article about record companies being forced to pay out $45m in damages for illegally using songs on compilation cds. yep.

over the years the labels have made a habit of using songs from a wide variety of artists for compilation cds without securing the rights. they simply use the recording and make note of it on “pending list” so they can deal with it later. this has been going on since the 1980s and since then the list of unpaid tracks (or copyright infringements) has grown to 300,000 in canada alone…warner music, sony bmg music, emi music and universal music were sued for the illegal use of thousands of tracks and risked paying damages of up to $6 billion. today the news broke that the two parties have agreed upon a settlement, where the record labels are required to pay $45 million to settle the copyright infringement claims.

anne b. ragde fail. jo ftw.

piracy scares the hell out of me. i do not know what to say. i lose sleep at night over it,” said ragde. “i have figured out that i’ve lost half a million kroner ($72,500) on piracy of my books, maybe more.”

…in response to a question about her habits when it comes to buying or otherwise acquiring copied or counterfeit items, ragde’s anti-piracy halo slipped more than a little.

“pirated handbags? yes, i do buy them,” she said. “i feel that the genuine prada bags have such an inflated price.”

ragde then reportedly went on to list many other items she’s bought legitimately but was kindly assisted with a further confession by her son, jo. if her halo had slipped with the bag admission, it was now set to strangle her.

“you have a pirated mp3 collection,” jo added, helpfully. “we copied the first 1500 songs from one place and 300 from another.”

cheers, torrentfreak.

oh – and you’re thinking of supernanny. she looks like supernanny.

fucking holograms dude.

whoever decided not to give japan the world cup in 2022. did you hear them say “holograms”?

the bid “involved projecting 3D holograms of the games live onto soccer football fields around the world.

fucking balls. and a mistake i think. the world may need a pick me up (“preach”) and seeing full size holograms in stadiums like some cool future shit is going to brighten up anyones day. and i mean anyone.

cheers, engadget.

i thought she might have been spacing them out a bit so wanted to see another. nope. watch this. all the way to the powernap. she’s also a massive tard so i’m going to call her a tward.

oh and fearne is also a twat for – “i couldn’t believe what peaches was saying. this was the first time she’d ever publicly admitted to being a follower of the religion of scientology.

from the wiki: “other countries, notably canada, france, germany, greece, belgium  and the united kingdom, refuse to grant scientology religious recognition.
