Obamacare Website Violates Licensing Agreement for Copyrighted Software

quote:

The latest indication of the haphazard way in which Healthcare.gov was developed is the uncredited use of a copyrighted web script for a data function used by the site, a violation of the licensing agreement for the software.

The script in question is called DataTables, a very long and complex piece of website software used for formatting and presenting data. DataTables was developed by a British company called SpryMedia which licenses the open-source software freely to anyone who complies with the licensing agreement. A note at the bottom of the DataTables.net website says: "DataTables designed and created by SpryMedia © 2008-2013." The company explains the license for using the software on that website [emphasis added]:



quote:

THE WEEKLY STANDARD contacted SpryMedia for comment. A representative for the company said that they were "extremely disappointed" to see the copyright information missing and will be pursuing it further with the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that runs the Healthcare.gov site.


WH also refuses to answer if people will be held accountable over the failure of Obamacare rollout problems

Violating laws is something they have a copyright to so it's all good. For example look no farther than the lovely ACA and their discretionary decisions as to who the law applies to and gets the breaks and who gets a digital exam.

Obama will tell them "You didn't build that software."

Recent numbers released, is just under 67K signed up. Nationwide.


Where'd that number come from? The Admin or Sebelius won't say how many have signed up, although Allen Colmes claimed it was 800k

I am honestly beginning to believe that this site was specifically designed to fail. The politicians know they have the media support to survive a disastrous launch, but they are not so sure about surviving Obamacare itself. Just got to get through the 2014 elections then everything with the site will be fixed lickity split

Nobody really knows...

quote:

One private-sector analysis showed that, during the first week, less than 1 percent of those who entered the registration area actually enrolled.

The review was released by Kantar US Insights, based on the findings of the Millward Brown Digital research firm. It showed 9.47 million unique visitors to the federal site during the first week, including 3.72 million who entered the registration area, 1 million successfully registering and 36,000 who completed enrollment.

The administration is not yet producing its own figures.


Sticker shock?

Trying to figure out how to manipulate it so the media will not question them. Shouldn't be too difficult. They could give a handout, with the numbers written in crayon to the WH press and they'd print editorials about how successful it is.

That has to include Medicaid in the state exchanges. No one has those numbers in policies being bought.

only 200,000 short of the million man march. Give it time. It going to be like voting. 1,000 registered and 5,000 voted.
