re: Can Someone Here Explain The Outrage Over This Internet Privacy Bill? - Korkstand
[quote]This is bull shite. You had one agency empowered with protecting our internet privacy, the FTC. Obama's administration assigned that authority to the FCC as well. Two agencies doing the same thing. The House voted to take it back from the FCC is all. Everything else you hear about it is spin, a...

[quote]GFY. Don't f*cking tell me what I know or don't know. [/quote]Whoa. [quote]Umm in terms of iP law (your reference) there is a VERY meaningful difference. Writing a story is a creative work.

[quote]Pf course not. Privacy is a concept. The price is on your data. It clearly has value, otherwise it wouldn't be for sale. As with all goods... it's a question of who values it more. It he ISP can market it for $15/mo that's it's price. [/quote]So all we have to do is convert concepts into ...

[quote]except the ISP's property is used to facilitate each of these choices, and a history is created on their property accordingly [/quote]The question is do they have a right to create that history and use the data?
