Clearview AI sued by ACLU for scraping billions of selfies from social media to power its facial-recog-for-cops system
Twitter, Reddit and pals super unhappy US visa hopefuls have to declare their online handles to Uncle Sam
>>by requiring individuals applying for visas to disclose their identifiers on twenty platforms, including Twitter, Reddit, and a number of the platforms represented by the Internet Association
And if you didn't declare them on your Visa app, how would they know you had any at all anyway. You just say that you don't use social media and they're not going to know any different.
Watch out, everyone, here come the Coronavirus Cops, enjoying their little slice of power way too much

This isn't an airborne virus. You're only going to possibly inffect other people if you have the virus yourself and cough, sneeze or dribble on them. Just being near someone won't magically infect you or them....
Just to follow up on RP's reply -
I've just logged into Amazon.fr (I don't have prime), chose something to buy and was offered a choice of a free trial with Amazon Prime and refusing the trial and just buying the item ("Continuer sans tester Amazon Prime") is clearly given as an option.....
It is just you.
I have my card details on Amazon (having used it for many many years) and I've never had any problem with fraudulent transactions (either on Amazon or the card account itself)
I've also bought from sellers in China a couple of times and never had any problems there either.
I imagine that nearly all Amazon users allow Amazon to hold their card details. If it was the case that these were always been stolen then Amazon would be overwhelmed and that's clearly not happening.

Tor pedos torpedoed again, this time Feds torpedo four Tor pedos – and keep how they unmasked dark-web scumbags under wraps
Re: Ban Tor
>>Law breakers / dissidents are basically the terrorists of countries just trying to get their people to follow the law. If they have a problem with that they can solve their issues by other means.
I'm unsure whether you are deliberately trolling here or not? The alternative is that you actually are as stupid as your comment would appear to indicate you are...
Re: Is it really an issue ?
Was TOR compromised? 10 to 1 says that Tor itself wasn't compromised in any way but that the perps were caught either due to not configuring the Tor Browser properly or by allowing themselves to be id'd outside of Tor. As far as I'm aware, every person arrested to date for committing crimes on the darkweb has been caught due to one of these two methods.
UK taxpayers funded Grand Theft Auto V maker to tune of £42m – while biz paid no corp tax and made billions
The idea of "trickle down economics" was discredited as long ago as the 1980s. There's never been any evidence that giving tax breaks to the rich or to large companies provides any significant benefit to people further lower down the economic chain. Quite the contrary in fact, as various studies done over the years has never shown any evidence to support it.
It's a pity that it continues to be pushed.

Re: publishers punished - not the user
>>Remember with this its the content provider that is liable, not the viewer
About 99% of porn sites are owned by non UK companies and situated outside the UK so the chances of any of them being successfully prosecuted are nil.
>>They can compel hosting companies, Advertisers etc to roll over on the site owner as well.
Not if said companies are situated outside the UK....
Re: I think the point here was that netflix intentionally
You seem to be presuming here that "choose your own adventure" is actually owned by Chooseco. The entire point of this legal case is that Netflix disputes this.
Netflix argument seems to be that Chooseco's claim is bollocks as the phrase is a common one and not unique enought to qualify as a trademark. (It's trademark we're talking about here btw, not copyright)
Seems reasonable of Netflix to me. Just becuase Chooseco are the little guys here doesn't mean they can freely claim phrases as their own.

Not that I disbelieve you but..yeah whatever.
What town exactly is it that you live in? The one you've carefully avoided mentioning. Just so we can check your claims. If things are so bad as you say, it must be all over the local media! Perhaps we could ask the police as well if they think there's a major problem?
Or it could be you're talking out of your hate-filled arse...
Re: The British Disease
>>While this 2 day voyage was going on, the British largely did nothing. And the reason for that inaction was the usual British disease of smugness; and infighting.
Absolute drivel. There is not a shred of evidence to support your claim of "smugness" and "infighting"! I suggest you might want to actually read about the subject you're wittering about before spouting this nonsense. The Wikipedia article is a good start - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_Dash
You don't have to show ID to buy alcohol, knives or solvents unless you look underage. Also, I've never been asked to show any sort of id to book into a hotel in the UK.
Last time I claimed JSA (a few years ago now), I don' recall having to produce id either (but I could be misrembering this).
Also, there's big difference I'd suggest in having to own a passport or driving licence (i.e. photo id) and just having proof of residence (e.g. utility bills.)

Re: Throw the book at them... Please
I buy stuff via Amazon all the time. I also never get any emails from them suggesting I might want to buy something. Perhaps that's because I don't retain cookies after logging out from Amazon.
I'd also point out that it appears to have escaped your notice that a huge number of companies sell their products to customers via Amazon. It's just not Amazon themselves...
