Imagine: a small troop of disgruntled authors sues Disney for plagiarism in every Disney title under the sun in various jurisdictions, gets an army of ruthless Disney lawyers to wage scorched-earth litigation to defend plagiarism, ahem, the #PublicDomain.
When Disney is sued for #copyright infringement, it seems the public is always better off: if Disney loses, it's less money for the racketeers; but if Disney wins, it's by…

Now is a great time to shut down coal plants for good. Instead they'll probably get a public bailout in the form of cheap finance.
Profits* for coal plants in Italy went negative in March, -0.8 €/MWh, as prices tumbled, imports barely grew and excess French nuclear power went to the trashbin.
