Web limit on police 'naming and shaming' of criminals

,----[ Quote ]
| Police forces that "name and shame" 
| criminals must remove the details from 
| websites after a month, new rules say.
| Criminals' details such as name, age, where 
| they are from and their offence, should be 
| published routinely on police websites, the 
| Ministry of Justice said. 


Newspapers Arenât Aged News â Theyâre TiVoed News, The iPods Of News!

,----[ Quote ]
| Like many, I got a laugh out of the Daily 
| Show piece earlier this year poking fun at 
| the New York Times for selling âaged news.â 
| But a talk I heard by Kevin Marks this 
| summer made me realize that newspapers 
| donât push aged news. They push TiVoed 
| news, or recorded news or stored news. Call 
| it what you want, thinking of newspapers as 
| efficient storage devices, rather than 
| being out-of-date, might increase their 
| respect these days and potentially, their 
| value.


Anti-Piracy Group To DRM Breaker: OK To Break The Law

,----[ Quote ]
| A consumer who reported himself to an anti-
| piracy group to try to force a change in 
| copyright law has finally received a 
| response. Denmarkâs Antipiratgruppen 
| acknowledges that the man broke the law 
| when he circumvented DRM, but have told him 
| that since it was for personal use with no 
| further distribution, there is no desire to 
| sue him.



Newspaper epitaph: âWho else is doing it?â

,----[ Quote ]
| But innovation is a dirty word at
| newspapers. When confronted with a
| potentially game-changing idea, the first
| question publishers always ask is, âWho
| else is doing it?â  That phrase could well
| stand as the industryâs epitaph.


A Look At All The Sites Owned By Rupert Murdoch That 'Steal' Content

,----[ Quote ]
| As Rupert Murdoch talks about how he wants
| to cut off Google, while claiming that
| aggregator sites are "parasites" and
| "stealing" from him -- and that fair use
| would likely be barred by the courts, it
| seemed like a good time to examine at least
| some of the sites that are owned by Rupert
| Murdoch that appear to aggregate content
| from other sites and which rely on the very
| same fair use argument. We've mentioned a
| few in the past, but figured it wouldn't
| hurt to explore them more thoroughly.
