La bozza di D.Lgs. è carta straccia, incostituzionale per eccesso di delega. Perché violare la direttiva e causare decenni di contenzioso? Cui prodest? Piuttosto meglio non fare niente.

A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of cheap books. 🧐

I can't tell whether UK publishers were serious, but the reality of post is duller.

Ok, «it's not just words, it's not a speech; it's a commitment of the entire Governing Council with delivery time, deliverables and pursuit of objectives [...] we take that very seriously – and action has already started.»

Unbelievable. Alito actually embraced this reckless theory that everything containing the word "shall" is subject to litigation by anyone, is not .

2 miliardi di euro di fatturato, ma consentire le spedizioni in Finlandia pareva troppo. Cipro e Lussemburgo invece vanno bene. E poi uno si chiede perché la gente finisce per comprare da certi giganti USA del commercio elettronico, dove tutti i venditori UE pari sono.

«In our view, for the reasons just described, the declaring code is, if copyrightable at all, further than are most computer programs (such as the implementing code) from the core of copyright.»

I stress "If copyrightable at all".

Yes, let's consider the «extent to which yet further protection creates unrelated or illegitimate harms [and] keep a monopoly within its lawful bounds».

Last week discovered that monopolies are bad, competition good. It immediately proceeded to suggest that the USA expand monopolies further, "copy" the restrictive -related regimes.

I love how ads are downright trolling the crowd: advice on how to get welfare in , for those who tried to get rich quick on .

I just finished my usual membership fees spree of January... hopefully this time I didn't forget any.

With the last USA org finally switched to a SEPA bank transfer, only 3 remain for later: one which uses SDD and a couple associations which prefer a Finnish bank transfer (with a reference code produced at some point during the year).

I had a good year so I added 2 more orgs. This year I might go over 20, depending how you count. O_o

I just added some 20k links to (gratis) DOIs on the English .
