    Capitalism: Solution is always to add more copyright
    • The US Senate has approved the Music Modernization Act of 2018, S.2334, with unanimous consent, bringing the first reform for music licensing in 20 years on the cusp of becoming law. The bill revamps Section 115 of the U.S. Copyright Act, combining three major pieces of legislation:

      • The Music Modernization Act, which streamlines the music licensing process to make it easier for rights holders to get paid when their music is streamed online.
      • The CLASSICS Act (Compensating Legacy Artists for their Songs, Service, & Important Contributions to Society Act) for pre-1972 recordings.
      • The AMP Act (or Allocation for Music Producers Act), which improves royalty payouts for producers and engineers from SoundExchange when their recordings are used on satellite and online radio. Notably, this is the first time producers have ever been mentioned in copyright law.

      The result is a bill that moves us toward a modern music licensing landscape better founded on fair market rates and fair pay for all.

      As all this copyright construction will fall it'll bury under itself lot of people. And all of them will be written into history as reaction elements.

    Japan Capacitors Cartel
    • In March EU fined tiny $312,5 millions Hitachi, Rubycon, ELNA, Tokin, NEC, Matsuo, Nichicon, Nippon Chemi-Con, Vishay Polytech, Holy Stone Holdings, Holy Stone Enterprises and Sanyo Electric for price fixing and hiking in 1998-2012. Extra money this companies got in such long period of time is in the tens of billions, so fine is just childish game for them.

      Now Korean authorities are looking at the newer cartel and will include more players. Chinese are expected to join the party.

      Note that cartel still exist with margins on capacitors even surpassing same cartel agreed margins on Japanese cameras.

    Facebook will be delivering only proper content
    • We know that people want to see accurate information on Facebook, so for the last two years, we’ve made fighting misinformation a priority. One of the many steps we take to reduce the spread of false news is working with independent, third-party fact-checkers to review and rate the accuracy of content. To date, most of our fact-checking partners have focused on reviewing articles. However, we have also been actively working to build new technology and partnerships so that we can tackle other forms of misinformation. Today, we’re expanding fact-checking for photos and videos to all of our 27 partners in 17 countries around the world (and are regularly on-boarding new fact-checking partners). This will help us identify and take action against more types of misinformation, faster.

      Nice thing. Be ready for extensive AI to be watching all your posts and photos.

    Capitalism: Education, or this guys won't stop
    • Nice thing from our Austrian reptile brained friends from Mises instutute:

      Nearly two centuries of government involvement in education has conditioned citizens to believe that not only is education an entitlement, but it is somehow free. This outlook is myopic at best.

      The real tragedy in this equation is the misallocation of resources that would otherwise have been used for more productive activities. People see the public schools, but they don’t look beyond stage one. They overlook the productive endeavors that could have been created had that money not been redistributed in the first place.

      It’s no stretch to say that under a system where people can keep their money they still have the ability to build their own educational arrangements on the free market.

      In the land of government services, incompetence is rewarded with bigger budgets and larger bureaucratic privileges. On the other hand, free enterprise responds to consumers, who have the power to put organizations out of business if their services are not up to par.

      I love this guys. They always want to turn clock back and return to 200 years ago time hoping that people somehow do not remember about life at the time.

      They play games with you, looking like they are not understanding on how society work and how capitalism changed and that it is natural change.

      Yet for uneducated people their recipes can sound bold, unusual at least.

      We need to cut all social services and make education to be free market service. Wow. How life will improve.
      For capitalist prostitutes who wrote this - it will.
