US Federal Judge Denies Appeal to Return Streaming Domains

A United States Federal judge has given a seal of approval to the summary seizure of foreign websites.

Rojadirecta may or may not have been a pirate website; that was not the issue that was decided upon on Thursday. The issue before the court was whether Puerto 80, the Spanish-based owner of the Rojadirecta.com and org websites, would be getting their property (the domain names) returned -- and therefore whether the seizure of a website violated the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Re: US Federal Judge Denies Appeal to Return Streaming Domains

Worryingly:

--------
However, ICE used the increasingly popular argument that the United States government enforcers have a right to pursue the interests of US-based private industry anywhere they choose, regardless of international agreements or jurisdictional borders.
--------

Rule ... USA .... USA rules the seas ....

Sooner the US doesn't "own" .com the better if they think they can ignore all international laws in their quest for peace and justice.

Some people would like it if there was a place beyond national sovereignty where domains would exist. Except there is no such place.

Sure, but currently we have seemingly the worst alternative. A country which believes it can go beyond "national sovereingty" whenever it "feels the need".

Re: US Federal Judge Denies Appeal to Return Streaming Domains

The American establishment lives in a World of it own.

I just been seeing that Wall Street Futures are up 3%. How the hell do they know. The average US investor is sound asleep. Do they all have chips inside their heads to see what they are dreaming?

As for Obama and Buffet, what Planet are they on?

What gets me is all the talk of French CDS being more expensive than US CDS. What kind of Moron would buy insurance on US debt? If the US goes down then it is bound to worthless. The fact that French CDS are higher does not indicate a greater risk, it represents a slightly higher chance of getting a payout. But anyone thinking they would get 100 centimes on the Euro is completely deluded.

Let's face it, most of them think they can solve all their problems by building more Aircraft Carriers. Talk about fighting the last war. And the problem is the last war is now like 70 years ago!

I was going to give you some rep points just for mentioning Billy Bragg (childhood hero) but I've no idea how to distribute rep points. I'll find it ....

Ha! Funny how we find each other. that said, we may be doomed to an existence of obscurity and injustice. As the man said, "Start your own revolution and cut out the middle man."

Methinks he was but thirty years early.

Yeah, I was a teenager when he was just making it big in the UK. Well "big" isn't quite the right word. Well known by John Peel followers is probably more accurate ...... he kept nicely "cult" for quite a few years, even with the odd TOTP appearance!

I would dig out his albums and have a nostalgic listen but they are all back in the UK. I don't think downloading his stuff would be the same.

still no idea how to give rep points away, anyone???

Re: US Federal Judge Denies Appeal to Return Streaming Domains

"Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards", quite an old song of his, but with some updated lyrics.

His intro to the song is:

"Some people sing about love, some people sing about war, some people sing about a better world to come, well I sing about all three and this is my theme song ....."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7d6Z...W-Bq-X&index=3

As someone said in the youtube comments:

"Billy Bragg is the closest thing I have to an actual hero"

That's how I felt. And it wasn't really about politics as such, I was pretty much apolitical as a youngster, it was more about connecting with someone that actually had compassion for other people, and HAD THE GUTS TO SING ABOUT IT.

or this quote

"i hate unions but love this song"

Peace

Re: US Federal Judge Denies Appeal to Return Streaming Domains

Better put a lid on this, lest the proper domainers get the idea that we're all socialists.

Oh, wait, who cares?
