Take-Down of Home Video From YouTube Site Leads to Damages Suit

,----[ Quote ]
| The Electronic Frontier Foundation is 
| trying to make Universal Music pay damages 
| for unfairly taking a home video of a 
| toddler dancing to a Prince song off 
| YouTube.
| But before the sides get to the sticky 
| question of just how the toddler's mother, 
| Stephanie Lenz, suffered by having the 
| video pulled and later restored to YouTube, 
| the EFF wants a judge to determine if such 
| damages are even possible. 


Top Ten China Myths of 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| The Internet might be censored but it can 
| never be rolled back in China. Fact: Over 
| the summer, China embarked on an 
| unprecedented effort to maintain stability: 
| it could be called The Great Internet Shut-
| Down. After scores of people were killed 
| and hundreds injured in the worst ethnic 
| violence in decades in the Xinjiang region, 
| authorities simply turned off large 
| portions of the Web in Xinjiang and left it 
| off for months. No email, Skype, and IM, 
| though local news sites and shopping and 
| such were still available, as this good 
| description points out. The effect on 
| business and education is incalculable, 
| but, in a measure of how much China is 
| willing to do to protect stability, 
| authorities kept the ban in place well into 
| the winter. This would probably not work on 
| a national basis, but the ban was a 
| shocking reminder of what is possible.
