First-known TikTok mob attack led by middle schoolers tormenting teachers
  • I mean everyone gets that it was in fact a joke right? What are we talking about here? People are trying to make it sound like the kids were harassing these teachers or trying to trick people into thinking they were pedophiles as opposed to passing around dumb memes about them between each other.

  • First-known TikTok mob attack led by middle schoolers tormenting teachers
  • I'd say it's a lot more like the lunch table, or even like a table at a restaurant off-campus. These kids were not directing these jokes at anyone but each other, but were in a semi-public place where they could be overheard. It's basically equivalent to a teacher walking by a table full of students making jokes about their teachers by pedophiles and getting them in trouble after overhearing.

  • Yet more examples of how copyright destroys culture rather than driving it
  • Eliminating copyright doesn't mean they'd be allowed to lie about who wrote what they were publishing. Anything an artist creates blowing up and gaining wide appreciation is very good for that artist's future prospects. An artist who is spreading their work for free anyway is much better off in the scenario where there's no copyright and everyone understands the need to tip / patronize their favorite artists.

  • Medical experts: Biden needs to be evaluated for Parkinson's
  • Yeah they're pretty reliable - it's the group blog of a bunch of professors. And of course the piece is filled with input from medical experts, and links to a CNN report on the same topic if that's more your speed.

    www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com Medical experts: Biden needs to be evaluated for Parkinson's - Lawyers, Guns & Money

    Sanjay Gupta just published a version of an article I’ve shopping around for the last 36 hours, except he doesn’t quote or cite any sources. For reasons I elaborate on below, I think Gupta’s conclusion is pretty much unassailable, although if you think this is all just a giant conspiracy to drive Jo...

    Yet more examples of how copyright destroys culture rather than driving it
  • "your proposal would harm young artists who need to share their works in order to gain publicity for something they intend to sell and sustain themselves on."

    The default is already for young artists to share a lot of their work hoping to get noticed. Getting rid of copyright would be reorienting the whole system to center that experience more rather than the established artists and art producing corporations who now are in a strong enough position to charge. "Making it" would just mean that your patreon was doing gangbusters rather than selling a lot of copies of whatever your art is.

  • Yet more examples of how copyright destroys culture rather than driving it
  • Yeah Project Gutenberg really demonstrates how this is all pretty much already built, just illegal to include recent works in. Though of course that's just books where the post copyright free library could also include all other art and culture such as tv, radio, movies, images, games, etc

  • Yet more examples of how copyright destroys culture rather than driving it
  • If we did ever get away from copyright we'd have a very different funding model for artistic creation. More patronage, patreon, and tipping based and less payment per sale. Artists, or groups of artists, would create and share their work, and people would direct money towards those they enjoyed the most. Physical copies of anything would decline in importance with all art available for free download, and would be sold and costed more based on the effort needed to manufacture that physical object than anything to do with the original creator or creators.
