| I guess the copyright police aren't coming knocking on my door anytime soon for uploading Deben Bhattacharya's "Evening Ragas" (c. 1960). In the real world we don't care about sharing 1950s BBC Radio recordings, or classical Indian field recordings that are almost 50 years old. We would probably not share anything EMI or Sony is trying to sell right now though. That's how the REAL WORLD works.|
Berne Convention, WIPO, TRIPS. Guess your "good (UK)" law school overlooked those little treaties, eh? Or did you just miss that day? Haw, haw, haw...
You know nothing about copyright law and you've already set yourself up as judge and jury as to when you feel you can break it. For the record, I only brought up US law because it's my jurisdiction and because both our nations are signatories to copyright treaties which respect the prevailing laws of each country with full reciprocity. Childish? No. First year law school? Hardly. Real world? See the treaties, not the scofflaws. Here's your final lesson on the matter, "counselor" (and I use the term very loosely):
Prediction: you'll continue with more name-calling, aspersions and allusions about "America doesn't own the world" (I never said it did, but our copyright laws are respected and enforced internationally by treaty just as yours are), and the like instead of addressing matters of law as I've done throughout the thread.
This is the whole problem with people like you. You're all talk, AND you lack discipline.
Your egotistical delusions are so convoluted, it appears that there's no helping you (and I AM trying to help you). The whole point is not to become ensnared in this Net, especially when you're trying to use it to ensnare others :LOL:. When you're ready to learn about how the real world works in real life, go after me for the "Evening Ragas".
And no, at law school we didn't cover meaningless scraps of paper like international conventions and treaties (treaties are ten a penny), and neither did we cover your meaningless US constitution (another all-bark-and-no-bite exercise in grandstanding). We did cover the intellectual property law of England and Wales.
But hey, keep this up and maybe you'll make it to President of the DSL forum! One thing you won't do is stop anyone doing what they want.
