Posted by Lex Fear on March 13, 2007

Scott Adams, who writes Dilbert, blogs comparing America’s system of government with Irans and poses the question: Is Iran as democratic as the United States?

[Profiteering] Caught In The Act!

Posted by Lex Fear on March 13, 2007

This doesn’t surprise me, I noticed it two years ago when, during the pre-Christmas sales, HMV were offering DVD’s and music at an artificially inflated price, with the minor difference of a “Sale” sticker slapped on the front of the box.

Posted by Lex Fear on March 13, 2007

“The perpetrators are shamelessly bold, as I experienced one day while using a hotel gym. After making polite conversation with the middle-aged white man on the next treadmill, I found myself in complete shock when he told me, I come to Cambodia for the girls. They’re good for one thing only.” – Elise Elzinga, God’s Politics

[Pimp My IP Rights] What Would Jon Stewart Make Of This?

Posted by Lex Fear on March 13, 2007

Viacom, the huge media company that once flexed it’s muscle to crush a tiny non-competitor is at it again. Long time readers may remember my post (gone due to blogger beatcha) on Pimp My Snack that was forced to change it’s name to Pimp That Snack!

This time they’re going for the big fish.

BoingBoing link to an ifilm video of John Stewart’s take on events. Kudos to Stewart for tackling it but seems to me like they tried to make out it was one big company suing another and who cares?

What A Weenie features a Youtube video for Electonic Frontier Foundation’s suite against Viacom- if you’ve had a video pulled- check this out.
