WinMx World News / EU Backs New Copyright Legislation - The Fat Get Fatter ?
« Last post by GhostShip on March 26, 2019, 09:47:25 pm »
Yet more bad news for the Internet generation  :suspious:

Copyright laws which critics say could change the internet have been voted in by the European Parliament.
The new rules, including the controversial Article 13, will hold tech firms responsible for material posted without copyright permission. Sharing memes and GIFs will still be allowed under the new laws.

Many musicians and creators say the legislation will compensate artists fairly - but others argue that they will destroy user-generated content.

It's early days yet in seeing just what new stupidity this legislation will dredge up, but such legislation does not pass without a few "donations and the "rightsholders" groups will be looking to take down some site or service to create a prescident they can use as a future legial action template.

Watch this space for the rightsholding monopolists to make their move.

You make the point spot on, as contained in Spotifys complaint to the European Unions anti monopoly folks, Apple could in theory be ordered to either open up their monopoly or be neutered within the EU region in the name of competition.

who will win the war of words ?
considering apple controls every aspect of the app store, and the apps that are on your phone, apple could just take spotify off its platform for whatever reason it chooses... no words needed...

WinMx World News / Apple Versus Spotify In War Of Words

The newcomer has issued a challeng to the incumbent, who will win the war of words ?

Apple has replied to claims by Spotify that App store policies gave it an "unfair advantage".
Spotify made its comments as it filed an official anti-trust complaint against Apple in Europe saying it "limited" consumer choice.

Apple took the unusual step of replying via a public statement clarifying how the App store worked and the fees it charged. "Spotify wants all the benefits of a free app without being free," it said.

In a blog Daniel Ek, co-founder of the music-streaming service, said it had decided to file its anti-trust complaint because Apple had changed App store policies to "purposely limit choice and stifle innovation".

It might turn out for the best if theres some movement in the online music market-place but as always it seems the first to market captures the lions share of  customers and its well known that many dont like changing their habits, be it in regard to online banking or simply prioritising their favourite colour, for this reason I see the need to make some noise but I dont see anything actually changing.

We must not forget that the recording industry owns a big slice of Spotify and so to put this in its real context this is simply an attempt to cause market-place disruption for Apple whom has the most to lose,

« Last post by GhostShip on March 10, 2019, 11:11:28 am »
Time to sound the alarm it seems.

Windows 7 users are at risk from a "serious" bug that could let malicious hackers take over their computer, Google has warned.
Cyber-thieves are "actively exploiting" the vulnerability by combining it with a separate flaw found in the Chrome browser.
Google has issued an update for its Chrome web browser to close the loophole. Microsoft has said it is also working on a fix for the problem in Windows 7.

Are you stil reading this ???  :!:

Update your chrome browser and stay safe  :yes:

good example is a site like old versions where has been a big treasure of applications and patches , lots of those little programs have gone.
there has been a great resource of old mirrored web pages, all gone, try to find tools for windows XP, so far you can find any info, most redirect to error 404, page not found, so even digitized history is disappearing :(

lol well, after all we are disappearing too and then our knowledge goes lost too

There does seem to have been a trend of disappearing data, it usually starts with sites disappearing from search engines and eventually losing a reason to exist due to lack of knowledge of their existence, not a nice way to end up but its seems the trend.
