Quote:why don't you tell about how you uploaded a Pink Floyd picture to the wiki, and it was deleted by Dreamhost because of copyright concerns.
Are you disagreeing with yourself?

Are you? ;-)

The Pink Floyd picture was viewed (i.e. downloaded) by people, which got it in trouble.

He probably doesn't see it that way. He appears to me to know no more about copyright law than he does about trademark law, or defamation. Wink

For instance,
Quote:if nobody downloads something, then nobody knows it's there, and nothing can happen.
is just hopelessly incorrect, and reflects complete ignorance of the issues involved, be they legal or technical.

Generally, it is best to just ignore such ignorant remarks, but to do so in this case might have contributed to the OP being grievously misled about his potential for trouble, so I suppose it needed to be responded to. People tend to "hear" what they want to hear, and I'd hate to see the OP rely on *that* statement.

Quote:In fact, you will find that organizations are more likely to pursue the uploaders than the downloaders because it is a more successful strategy for stopping piracy.
That is a provably true statement when it comes to the RIAA and the MPAA in regards to their war on P2P file exchange.

Quote:Actually, Pee-wee
Name-calling is extremely rude and childish, Bob. When addressing me in a public forum directly, you are welcome to use my first name (Simon) or my user name (scjessey). I would rather you refrained from using "Pee-wee" as I see it as a personal attack.

I would rather you take down your "special" site, Pee-wee, and stop addressing me by anything other than my userID, as I see those as more serious personal attacks, versus a friendly little nick-name like Pee-wee.

You just can't see it in any way other than uploads AND downloads. Think of the example of uploading backups, where nobody but the uploader will download it. Especially when encrypted, it should be pretty safe. The other angles were already covered. I suppose it's true that humorless (re: ":-)" ) or foolish may seize the "wrong" interpretation, but they're bound for trouble anyway.

You have previously identified yourself as "Bob Smith", so I have courteously referred to you as "Bob" since then. How is that a personal attack? Would you prefer Robert, or Mr. Smith? Which userID would you like me to address you as? The one I am most familiar with is ardco (which is also the most prolific).

Since you now use sock puppets in an attempt to conceal your identity when you make inflammatory posts, I began keeping a list of them so that I could keep track of them all. The genie is out of the bottle, and getting DreamHost to delete identities is not going to help you. Nor will sending me threats.

That's an interesting thought. Which "UserID" would you like people to use - or are you really talking about your forum Username(s), and which of those would you prefer we use?

I, for one, have no intention whatsoever of "pretending" to be talking with different people if I exchange posts with one of your puppets - I'm still interacting with *you* irrespective of who you choose to call yourself in a given context.

Maybe it would be less confusing for everyone if I just went back to referring to you with the username you used on these forums for over 2,000 posts, over a period of several years, or if I just hyphenated all your usernames into a single "mega-persona".

It seems pretty obvious to me that if you don't want people to refer to you in a manner that lumps all your puppets into a single "entity", for convenience of reference and history, you could just pick a username and use it.

Since you don't want to do that, you can hardly blame anyone for "addressing" you as any and/or all of the usernames you employ here or even a completely different "catch-all", like "Bob".

I agree that it might appear that is the reason for the puppetry, but there could be other reasons.

An obvious one that comes to mind is the expanded distribution of promo codes in the various puppets' sigs ... :O
