US rejected Brown's McKinnon case plea

Re: what gets me

"regardless of the reasons for being there, he shouldnt have been"

Sorry but that's insufficient reason for exposing him to the good chance of a for 99 years sentence.

The internet is a wide open place, there is no "should" and "shouldn't" about it. It exists. You can go places.

If some of those places do not want visitors then it is up to the PLACE to be secired, not up to the visitor not to go in. e.g. if I came to your house and the door was wide open, I can wlak in, but not if the door is shut, locked and bolted. In this case the door was wide opn. The fault lies with those in charge of door-bolting.

The thing that the doll is standing on is not copyright, since it it not an Apple logo. Check the Apple logo first. Also you can not copyright a 3 dimensional object, which that is - ask Coca-Cola (tried to trademark the bottle shape)

Twitter 'martyr' takes airport joke case to High Court

ShaggyDoggy

Sent

I take issue with the word "sent" as in sent to the airport.

The message was only sent there if it had an explicit @ of the sirport or the suthority there.

140 characters

“Anti-Japanese demonstrations, smashing Japanese products, that was all done years ago by Guo Quan [an activist and expert on the Nanjing Massacre]. It’s no new trick. If you really wanted to kick it up a notch, you’d immediately fly to Shanghai to smash the Japanese Expo pavilion.”

is way more than 140 characters, even with the stuff in square brackets taken out, so either Twitter in China has more than 140 characters, or there's some way they can use Chinese characters to save space, or this article is rubbish, or I'm wrong.

Sidejacking ?

Oh they must mean intentional computer misuse and therefore a criminal offence (here in the UK).

Don't give criminal activity a nice name, it dilutes the offence e.g. "tagging" vs grafitti vandalism
