I'm trying to write up one wolf story, and another wolf story pops ups. I'm beset by wolves this morning.

I express my frustration out loud like this: "Remember 'Women who Run with the Wolves'? What the hell was that?""I also remember Naomi Wolf," says Meade."May I quote you?""Yes," he answers, adding "I also remember Wolf Blitzer."So the first story I'm trying very hard to process for this blog is: "A Feud in Wolf-Kink Erotica Raises a Deep Legal Question/What do copyright and authorship mean in the crowdsourced realm known as the Omegaverse?" That's in the NYT. I've had the tag open since yesterda...

Can the taste of a cheese be copyrighted?

Copyright is an intellectual property right that vests in original works. We know that works like novels, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and songs are examples of what copyright law protects.But how far can copyright protection go? Can copyright protect, say, a perfume or the taste of a food product?Unlike more traditional works, which are perceived through senses like sight and hearing – that is, through mechanical senses – perfumes and tastes can be only perceived through chemical senses,...

COPIED? TMIL Systems PRIME Versus The TYR Tactical MICO Belt-Fed Backpack

I know very little about belt-fed machine guns and the feed chute systems available to guide the ammunition reliably. So when the TMIL Systems PRIME belt-fed manpack and ammunition system popped up on my Twitter feed, my first thought was that it might qualify as news-worthy. Then I got that weird ‘gear deja vu’ feeling. And after […] Read More … The post COPIED? TMIL Systems PRIME Versus The TYR Tactical MICO Belt-Fed Backpack appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

The shutdown of library.nu

I came to know about the Lions Book soon after I had started to use GNU /Linux during the final years of my high-school. Although I had a PDF copy of it (along with another PDF of the source code), I wanted to have a physical copy of the book as well. I had to wait for quite a few years before that could happen, because the printed book wasn’t available in India. Finally, in late 2006, after getting paid for my first consultant job, I got a copy shipped from the United States to Kolkata. Th...
