• The Legal Show: The Case of the Expendables - Privacy Versus Piracy

    in Legal

    Arrorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.



    The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a competent local attorney for any legal advice they may require.



    This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
    Tonight we discuss privacy on the web versus illegal piracy activity.  Lionsgate film studio has been allowed to subpoena companies to help it find those who pirated copies of The Expendables 3.  They will now ask companies including Google and GoDaddy to find the sharers' identities.  Third parties also subpoenad include CloudFlare, Incapsula, Google, GoDaddy and Domains by Proxy LLC.  Lionsgate may demand the production of electronically stored information such as billing records, website content, server logs and correspondence.  To many, this flies in the face of privacy concerns that are very hot right now.  Tune in to hear where this falls on the “legally allowable” versus “internet privacy" spectrum.

    THE NEW POLITICS OF THE INTERNET: EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED

    in Legal

    CAN INTERNET ACTIVISIM TURN INTO A REAL POLITICAL MOVEMENT? 


    WHEN dozens of countries refused to sign a new global treaty on internet governance in late 2012, a wide range of activists rejoiced. They saw the treaty, crafted under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), as giving governments pernicious powers to meddle with and censor the internet. For months groups with names like Access Now and Fight for the Future had campaigned against the treaty. Their lobbying was sometimes hyperbolic. But it was also part of the reason the treaty was rejected by many countries, including America, and thus in effect rendered void.


    The success at the ITU conference in Dubai capped a big year for online activists. In January they helped defeat Hollywood-sponsored anti-piracy legislation, best known by the acronym SOPA, in America’s Congress. A month later, in Europe, they took on ACTA, an obscure international treaty which, in seeking to enforce intellectual-property rights, paid little heed to free speech and privacy. In Brazil they got closer than many would have believed possible to securing a ground-breaking internet bill of rights, the “Marco Civil da Internet”. In Pakistan they helped to delay, perhaps permanently, plans for a national firewall, and in the Philippines they campaigned against a cybercrime law the Supreme Court later put on hold.


    THE NEW GREEN


    Debate and dissent over the issues raised by the spread of information technology are not new. In the 1990s civil-liberties groups, including the pioneering Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), campaigned against the Communications Decency Act, part of which was eventually overturned by America’s Supreme Court.

    Episode 170: Stolen Seas; Tales of Somali Piracy

    in Military

    We have heard from industry, military leaders, Marines, and private security providers, this Sunday we are going to look at piracy at a more personal level with director Thymaya Payne of the documentary, Stolen Seas; Tales of Somali Piracy. He will be our guest for the full hour.
    From the show promo:
    The filmmakers have spent the past three years traveling to some of the world's most violent locales in order to make this documentary on Somali piracy, Stolen Seas. Utilizing exclusive interviews and unparalleled access to real pirates, hostages, hostages' relatives, ship-owners, pirate negotiators and experts on piracy and international policy, Stolen Seas presents a chilling exploration of the Somali pirate phenomenon.
    The film throws the viewer, through audio recordings and found video, right into the middle of the real-life hostage negotiation of a Danish shipping vessel, the CEC Future. As the haggling between the ship's stoic owner Per Gullestrup, and the pirate's loquacious negotiator, Ishmael Ali, drags on for 70 days, these two adversaries' relationship takes an unexpected turn and an unlikely friendship is born.
    Stolen Seas is an eye opening refutation of preconceived ideas on how or why piracy has become the world's most frightening multi-million dollar growth industry.

    Chillpak Hollywood Hour #339 - Publishing, Piracy, German Expressionism

    in Film

    On this week’s show, your friends in podcasting begin with a brief exchange concerning Tom Cruise and Veterans Day, followed by a discussion of the publishing business and “novellas”. Then, a note from a loyal listener leads to more discussion about Vincent Price, before Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness launch into a discussion of German Expressionism, the impact it had on silent films, film noir, David Lynch and even the art work of … Dean, himself.


    Then, the gents follow up on an email from a listener last week concerning digital piracy. This results in Dean and Phil listing and analyzing the top ten most pirated movies of the past year and whether any of their financial fortunes were actually harmed by this piracy.


    Then, it’s the ten movie trailers that forever changed the way films were advertised and sold.


    Finally, Phil wraps up with his take on the versatile and brilliant Stephen Merchant’s new series “Hello Ladies”.


    Trust us, somehow, the entire show turns out to be a riot.


    As ever … On YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

    Vernon v. Autodesk

    in Legal

    Vernon v. Autodesk


    This episode of Vondran Legal Hour features an overview of the case of Vernon v. Autodesk and asks and answers the question of "Can I buy software at a garage or office sale and sell it on an internet auction website such as eBay without risking federal copyright infringement?"


    This is a very imporant question, and often misunderstood.  Most people think when they "buy" software that they become the "owner" of the software and thus have a legal right to sell the software online.  This is not always true and it is very important to look at the terms of the Software Licensing Ageement.


    If you are acting outside the scope of the licensing agreement, you may winde up posting the software for sale on your eBay "power seller" account only to find out the software company sends out a "take down" notice that might result in getting your eBay account (or Amazon.com account) shut down.


    Federal Copyeright law protects software products and the members of the Business Software Alliance ("BSA") which is comprised of some of the largest software companies in the world - such as Adobe, Microsoft, Autodesk, Apple, Bentley, Symantec etc., take issues of alleged "software piracy" very serious.  They even have an "anti-piracy" hotline that gives rewards to ex-employees who blow the whistle on their employers use of unilcensed (meaning unpaid for) software, or the failure to purchase the software from authorized resellers.

    Communism Comes to America

    in Politics Conservative

     Elements of communism have entered our society and are growing.  Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh was born in Romania during the communist era of Nicolae Ceausescu.  A survivor of communist utopia and its indoctrination, she immigrated legally to the United States in 1978 and became a proud naturalized American citizen by choice in 1982.


    She wrote Echoes of Communism to dispel the romantic version of communism taught in American public schools. Her second book, Liberty on Life Support, contains short essays on American Exceptionalism, Economics, Immigration, and Education.


    U.N. Agenda 21: Environmental Piracy, a best seller at Amazon describes and provides evidence of the advanced implementation in the United States of global control of our private property rights, of our economy, and of attacks on our sovereignty in the name of protecting the planet from environmental damage.
