Nice To Meet You! / Re: Welcome
« Last post by RapsMX on July 18, 2018, 05:25:27 am »
Hello everyone,

I’ve been away from WinMX for a while due to work and life commitments. I have also forgot my old account details and no longer use the original email address that i used to registered my account so I’ve made a new account.

Toad! If you see this how are you doing mate and I hope your well? I don’t even have access to my old Skype or MSN messenger anymore otherwise I would have dropped you a message.

WinMx World News / Re: 15 EU MP's Vote To Censor Web - A Historically Dumb Decision

Since the GDPR came in I've been unable to visit a lot of US based news websites due to them not being compliant and deciding to just block all EU visitors as a result.

I think the GDPR is a good thing but I fear if these regulations come in (I believe they're voting on it again in September) it will cut Europe off from the rest of the "sane" internet much how the GDPR has caused a lot of websites to block us already (until they get compliant anyway).

Victory for now it seems.

With copyright millionaires such as paul mccartney and others adding their weight to this failed proposal it will be just a matter of time till the greedy folks try this on again, a better idea for consumers would be for the citizens of the globe to chip into a shares based company and buy out all of the media companies back catlogues and then of course we can simply ignore the current fad of auto-tuned drum machine ridden 3 line lyric specials I often hear on the radio  :evil:

We have a 1st win! On 5 July, the European Parliament plenary voted against the mandate to start negotiations with Council.  However, the battle to defeat the Article 13 Censorship Machine is far from over: it must now be won in the European Parliament plenary in September. The site will be rethought and rebuilt to support you in facing the next stage of the battle. This is not over and your efforts will continue to lead to a balanced & positive outcome!

Welcome back to the 90's.

Rumours of the death of AIM have been slightly exaggerated, like the phoenix it rises from the ashes! Keep in mind that currently only third party clients that support non SSL and non ClientLogin connections, and official AIM clients up to 5.9 will work here.

it is what it says... someone has made a clone of the server for aol instant messenger... ...not quite sure why they did this but it does work :P

it probably didnt help that prince himself was just as crazy about music royalties and piracy as lars ulrich (guy who killed napster)....

An 11-year legal action over a YouTube video of a baby dancing to Prince's hit Let's Go Crazy has been settled.
Stephanie Lenz posted the clip of her son Holden, now aged 12, in February 2007. And it has since been viewed more than 1.9 million times.

Last week the US Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from Universal, which owns the rights to Prince's music, over a previous ruling by the Ninth Circuit, this led to both parties coming to their own agreement to settle the case.

Mrs Lenz, represented in court by US digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said in a statement that Universal's processes for handling such cases were now "much better".


If this is the way the recording industry act towards toddlers what chance does the actual artist have in getting any revenues, such greed knows no human bounds.

Article 11, requiring online platforms to pay publishers a fee if they link to their news content, was also approved.
this sounded so asinine when i first read it i thought i didnt read it right... third time i read it.... how the hell is this going to be enforced? 
if someone links an .eu news source on twitter... twitter has to pay? isnt that just going to make twitter filter out links? newspapers do want to be read... right?
would retweeting a tweet from the BBC count as linking? ... and this is just twitter im using as an example... social media in general is going to have to jump through
some strange hoops... or just block their services from reaching the .eu if they are not based in it...

They voted to approve the controversial Article 13, which critics warn could put an end to memes, remixes and other user-generated content.
again... how?? services are just going to shut down in the .eu ... memes will continue on in countries where this isnt a thing... ...so many not-so-rich websites are going to be forced
to block their service to the .eu just to stay online... and sites in the .eu ..?.. i see many businesses jumping ship out of europe and into friendlier territory...

its not the end of the internet.. its just the end of the internet for the .eu

remember that next time you vote on who you put in power...
