There Are Several Good Reasons To End Entertainment Industry Subsidies, But Blasphemy Isn't One Of Them

There are a lot of arguments to be made against subsidizing movie/TV studios. The best argument is this: the payouts to visiting studios rarely pay off for local taxpayers. Politicians love the side benefits -- rubbing elbows with producers, actors, and other studio personnel -- but there's nothing to be gained financially by paying a studio to film in your town. In one case, a city was promised 3,600 additional jobs. In reality, only 200 j...

UK High Court Hands Win To Claimant In Right To Be Forgotten Case

The UK High Court has handed down a win (and a loss) in the Right to be Forgotten column. Two plaintiffs seeking delisting of information about their past criminal exploits had their cases considered by the court. Only one of them is walking away with a court order for delisting. The other one will apparently have to live with his past . The claimant who lost, referred to only as NT1 for legal reasons, was convicted of conspiracy to account...

Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

This week, our first place comment on the insightful side is a long one from Stephen T. Stone , responding piece by piece to a comment that was packed full of errors about Section 230, the first amendment, and... everything : You must expand on why and how wrong. Well, if you insist… NO LAW in the US has ANY other valid purpose than to serve the interests of We The People. And the last time I checked, CDA 230 makes it possible for We The Pe...

We Interrupt Today's News With An Update From The Monkey Selfie Case

In today's fast-paced news cycle it's easy to overlook the important things: the copyright status of the monkey selfie . Today we have learned nothing new about it, except that the case is not over yet. Which is itself significant, because the parties in the case had jointly moved to dismiss the appeal , and today that motion was denied. In its order denying the motion [pdf, embedded below] the Ninth Circuit acknowledged that while it had t...

California Bill Could Introduce A Constitutionally Questionable 'Right To Be Forgotten' In The US

As we've pointed out concerning the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, the thinking behind the regulation is certainly well-meaning and important. Giving end users more control over their own data and increasing privacy controls is, generally speaking, a good idea. However, the problem is in the drafting of the GDPR, which is done in a manner that will lead to widespread censorship . A key part of the problem is that when ...

Ted Cruz Gets Section 230 All Wrong, While Zuck Claims He's Not Familiar With It

There's plenty to say about Mark Zuckerberg's first congressional hearing this week (like Senator Thune's thinly-veiled threat of more SESTA-like laws, or Senator Cantwell's strange, unfocused tangent about Palantir and WhatsApp) but one exchange stands out as so utterly ridiculous that it bears special note. Senator Cruz used his time in an attempt to shift the focus onto Republican fears that Facebook is a liberal propaganda machine, and ...

This Week In Techdirt History: April 1st - 7th

Five Years Ago We saw a mix of court rulings this week in 2013, with Aereo winning a victory before its eventual defeat, ReDigi losing in its attempt to resell MP3s , and a judge granting a copyright troll the maximum statutory damages in a default case. Meanwhile, the Prenda saga came to another apex with the second hearing before Judge Otis Wright. Prior to the day, Ken White from Popehat took a look at what the judge might do , and then ...

Appeals Court Rules That GTA5 Didn't Infringe On Lindsay Lohan's Likeness Rights

While there are absolutely far too many Techdirt posts featuring celebrity(?) Lindsay Lohan in these pages, most of them deal with one specific issue: her lawsuits against Take Two Interactive. At issue was a character Lohan insisted infringed on her likeness rights because the character is a drunk driver, public-fornicator, and has a backstory as a child actress. If Lindsay wants to insist that her own history lines up with that sort of ba...

Judge Blocks Iowa Town From Shutting Down Or Suing Resident Over His Critical Website

The government of a small town in Iowa has just received a slapdown from a US federal court. The public servants running Sibley, Iowa -- pop. ~3,000 -- decided it was going to eliminate one resident's First Amendment rights because he wouldn't stop telling people moving to Sibley might be a bad idea. It all began with a meat byproduct processing plant that moved to the small town, creating jobs and a powerful stench. Resident Jeremy Harms a...
