Porn Companies Are Going After GitHub

Posted on January 10th, 2015 at 17:51 by John Sinteur in category: ¿ʞɔnɟ ǝɥʇ ʇɐɥʍ, Intellectual Property

Porn production companies are currently engaged in a scorched earth copyright infringement campaign against torrenting sites with URLs containing specific keywords—say, “thrust” or “glob-watcher.” GitHu​b, a popular site for coders that allows professionals and hobbyists to create open source software together, is getting caught in the crossfire.

Several Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaints filed to G​oogle by companies representing various porn companies in the last month alone have resulted in dozens of legitimate GitHub URLs being removed from the search engine’s results, Tor​rentFreak first reported.

Among the offending URLs were GitHub support pages, entire code repositories, and user profile pages. Tomasz Janczuk, a former Microsoft employee, had part of his GitHub repository​ removed from Google’s search results after a December 20th, 2014 DMCA compla​int by Takedown P​iracy LLC, a company representing Adam & Eve, a porn production company.

According to Janczuk, removing GitHub pages from Google’s search results could harm the open source software community by reducing its visibility online.

“Removal of GitHub content or reduction of its visibility would have a substantial impact on companies or individuals participating in the open source model,” Janczuk sad in an email, “since high visibility of [open source software] content is frequently part of a marketing strategy.”

Janczuk’s URL, “https://github.com/tja​nczuk/edge,” was apparently too close to The E​dge, a 2001 movie made by Adam & Eve, for the company’s liking.

Porn companies aren’t alone in this practice, though a perusal of Google’s tra​nsparency report reveals that the vast majority of DMCA complaints against GitHub in the last six months were filed by Takedown Piracy on behalf of a range of porn companies.

Posted on January 4th, 2015 at 12:05 by John Sinteur in category: Joke

Just before Christmas I was shopping at a toy store in the city. I glanced to my left and caught sight of a queue at the doll counter. They were waiting for the shelves to be restocked with Mattel dolls. As I looked I realised that in the queue was a good friend of mine.

Knowing Lennie well I was sure that he had no daughters nor did he have any nieces so I wondered why he should want to buy a doll at Christmas time.

“Hey, Lennie” I cried “I hadn’t realised you collected dolls”. “I don’t” he replied laughing. “Really?” I queried “Then you must be buying a Christmas present then?”

“No, not at all, my friend” responded Lennie, his eyes twinkling merrily.

“If you don’t mind my asking then Lennie” I said “Why exactly are you standing in this particular queue?”

“Oh that” he giggled. “It’s like this, my mate” he mused “I’ve never been able to resist a Barbie queue”.

  1. Ouch. I’d grill you as to where you got this one, but I am sure the embers on that joke have cooled.

Claims that boys were murdered by VIP sex ring are credible and true

[Quote]:

Scotland Yard has said claims by a witness that a “VIP” sex abuse ring murdered three boys are “credible and true”.

The allegations made by the witness, known by the pseudonym Nick, have triggered a murder investigation.

Police said the alleged abuse by a Westminster-based paedophile ring lasted a decade at locations across London and the Home Counties, including military premises.

Det Supt Kenny McDonald, who is leading the homicide inquiry, told a press conference on Thursday that detectives believed the witness’s claims.

Shasta County atheist to get $2 million for first-amendment violation

Posted on October 15th, 2014 at 10:54 by John Sinteur in category: ¿ʞɔnɟ ǝɥʇ ʇɐɥʍ, batshitinsane

[Quote]:

The California government and a nonprofit will pay a Shasta County atheist nearly $2 million for violating his civil rights when he was sent back to prison for taking issue with a religious drug-treatment program while on parole.

Barry Hazle Jr. and his attorney, John G. Heller, announced the settlement this morning at a press conference in San Francisco.

Hazle was imprisoned for just over 100 days after taking issue with the drug-treatment program that centered on submitting one’s fate to a “higher power.” Heller said the program also included prayer and references to God.

But when Hazle asked for another treatment program, he was told Westcare’s 12-step program was the only one available.

Probation officials eventually sent him back to prison at California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, where he had already spent a year on drug possession charges that were overturned by an appeals court, according to court documents. Their decision was based on Hazle allegedly being “disruptive, though in a congenial way, to the staff as well as other students…sort of passive-aggressive,” and needing further treatment, according to court documents.

So his conviction was overturned, basically declaring him innocent, but they sent him back because he didn’t go “Yes Sir!” loudly enough on every thing they said to him?

  1. We all knew these guys needed to bugger off, but not literally.

  2. It’s getting so no self respecting goatherd can show his affection for his livestock without someone snooping. What ever happened to privacy! I blame Obama.

    Seriously though, wasn’t this sort of thing going on long before IS moved in?

  3. I vote for an air-drop of Fleshlights by the Humane Society.

  4. Sue, I second that.. maybe a fleshlight drone strike?

  5. Maybe he just couldn’t hold out any longer for those 72 virgins. I man has needs, Y’know.

  6. @Sue – According to the Fleshlight website, it is molded from “you favorite porn stars”. I searched and I could not find anything molded from “your favorite donkey” or “your favorite sheep”. Perhaps this is a business opportunity? Actually for these pricks, I would like air drop Fleshlights like devices that also do auto castrations once they are “done”.

  7. @Mykolas: Be careful what you ask for…some of the most violent and feared warrior groups in history were eunuchs!

  8. Oh. My technical advisor says there’s a difference between cutting off the pointy bit and the round bits. Sorry.

1 billion people fired!
