Kim Dotcom Wins Case Against NZ Police To Get Seized Material Back

New submitter Mistakill writes "It seems the case against Kim Dotcom for the NZ Police isn't going well, with Kim Dotcom scoring another victory in his legal battles. Police have been told they must search everything they seized from Dotcom and hand back what is not relevant to the U.S. extradition claims. Justice Helen Winkelmann told police their complaints about the cost and time of the exercise were effectively their own fault for indiscriminately seizing material in the first place. She wrote, 'The warrants could not authorize the permanent seizure of hard drives and digital materials against the possibility that they might contain relevant material, with no obligation to check them for relevance. They could not authorize the shipping offshore of those hard drives with no check to see if they contained relevant material. Nor could they authorize keeping the plaintiffs out of their own information, including information irrelevant to the offenses.'"

A ACAPOR está no negócio da legendagem?

Estão a ver para que serve a porcaria inútil do Tribunal da Propriedade Imaginária?

Só serve para entidades totalmente obsoletas que representam outras entidades totalmente obsoletas levarem a cabo circos baseados em propriedade imaginária prejudicando muito mais gente do que aquela que alegam ser prejudicada.

Já agora, é melhor a ACAPOR ir atrás dos supermercados uma vez que facilitam às pessoas meios para obter snacks a um custo muito mais atrativo do que os que eram vendidos nos clubes de vídeo (e segundo consta, das suas maiores receitas nos últimos tempos antes de se tornarem obsoletos).

Sinceramente, a ACAPOR já devia era ter encerrado as portas. Não me lembro de ver um clube de vídeo aberto e, curiosamente, via mais clubes de vídeo abertos antes da TV On Demand.

Pois é, mas ir atrás da PT, SONAE e Vodaphone nos tribunais é um processo mais incerto do que ir atrás de pequenos portugueses que vivem em comunidade.

Apesar de infelizmente inválida para a apresentação a órgãos oficiais, se tiver MUITAS assinaturas pode ser que os deputados votem por medidas que devolvam justiça ao direito de autor, já há muito desequilibrado em favor dos titulares de direitos (que normalmente nem são os autores nem os artistas mas as suas editoras).

Assina já esta petição: Petição Extinção da ACAPOR

Nota: link da petição corrigido, o anterior estava mal

Identi.ca Updates for 2013-05-27

  • @evan you realize your dream of federated social networks depends a lot of people with 1 IP only VPSs, right? #
  • RT @zack RT @balleyne Very impressed with how patient @evan has been with the anxiety and questions over the http://ur1.ca/1 migration. #
  • @zack @Evan is an awesome person. I’m extremely happy to have met him IRL, it’s truly an honor! #
  • @evan I agree. There should be a better way. But even though I could setup with ipv6 none of my 3 isps support it. 🙁 #
  • @evan I also tried via openshift but it was a no go. And they have Apache on port 80 as a front end as well. 🙂 #

Identi.ca Updates for 2013-05-26

  • Installed my own pump.io instance. June 1 will be a disaster if identica turns out as unstable. I hope @Evan has lots of uncommitted code. #
  • @evan not this way, I don’t think so. #
  • @evan I’m using wheezy. npm -g install pump.io ; using redis backend. 400 bad request for login in email is requested. #
  • @evan several times, the interface just freezes. I have to press reload on the browser URL #
  • @evan some URLs are built using values stored in db so when URL changes they build bad URLs #
  • @evan then I tried from git but it was even more unstable. #
  • @evan since I used the master branch it’s not entirely unexpected but… #
  • @evan sure, I’ll be one of them in the meanwhile but crickets might be heard 😉 #
  • @evan I’m using node 0.10.5 in usr local bin, not from wheezy #
  • @evan why not build URLs from the environment variables? Wouldn’t that solve the problem? #
  • @evan it was even worse when I required email. No mail sent, logged in and super unstable. #
  • @evan sure. #
  • RT @glynmoody needless to say, #BBC news has not one iota about the 2 million people marching against #monsanto yesterday; the mega-fail … #
  • @evan I also need to run it behind Apache because I only have one IP and I can’t waste it on one site alone… #
  • @jankusanagi I don’t mind a temp. loss of functionality while new stuff gets added to pump.io, it’s the stability of what’s there I worry. #
  • @jankusanagi you really need to check my latest dents exchanged with Evan… #
  • @evan first log: trying to register for the first time, behind a reverse proxy: http://ur1.ca/e1tl8 #
  • @evan second log: http://ur1.ca/e1tq2 there are reasons to change web sites, like working around the previous issue. #
  • In retrospection, all my instability issues might be due to the impossibilty to register behind the reverse proxy and working around that. #
  • It’s possible that more URLs are using the alternative port… #
  • Expecting stability regarding “other” servers in the Internet? Really? #
  • Unfair? They’re not at http://pump.io/ if anyone has “unfair” to shout out it’s me. http://ur1.ca/d6s5g more useful info #
  • Sorry. I think it’s unfair to cite documentation that’s not in plain sight, specially when what seems to me like a design flaw is at stake. #
  • Ok, urlport might help a lot for this setup, I’ll try again from master, and report back soon. #
  • “if you’re insisting on proxying behind Apache or whatever despite warnings not to, you can use this.” unfair to people with VPS and 1 IP #
  • Seems not to work. I get an infinite http 301 redirect loop. #
  • I realize you care about an URL that doesn’t change, but you shouldn’t impose that on a design. It should be a best practice, though. #
  • That configuration definitely results in a 301 redirection loop. GET / HTTP/1.1 Host: pump.1407.org -> Location: http://pump.1407.org/ #
  • And it’s amazing to see what look like bots already trying to abuse it 🙂 #
