UK High Court makes it illegal to copy your own music again

UK High Court makes it illegal to copy your own music again

Music and movie fans in the UK were happy when a law was passed in the UK last October that allowed them to make legal copies of CDs and DVDs that they had purchased in an effort to convert them to digital media for use on the go. The UK High Court has now come back and said that it is illegal again to make copies of legally owned movies and music.

Deadpool movie teased with first official still

Deadpool movie teased with first official still

A few years ago some test footage for a Deadpool movie was recorded and more recently it surfaced online, drumming up a lot of excitement in the process. Time went by, though, with little hope for fans until it finally became official — a Deadpool movie is happening, and it will be arriving next year. We've heard bits and pieces about the movie since then, and now we have gotten a look at the first official still from the flick.

Supreme Court declines to Google’s appeal in Oracle copyright suit

Supreme Court declines to Google’s appeal in Oracle copyright suit

The United States Supreme court rejected an appeal from Google after it lost a copyright infringement case against Oracle. The case originally dates back to 2010. It was then that Oracle Corp., the software company behind Java, alleged that Google's Android OS infringed on copyrighted Java APIs (application programming interfaces). In 2012, a district court found the case in favor of Google, but, in May of last year, the judge's ruling was overturned when an appeals court ruled in favor of Oracle. As the U.S. Supreme Court has backed off, this could be the ruling that stands, holding that API's can be copyrighted.

Google transparency report details ‘right to be forgotten’ requests

Google transparency report details ‘right to be forgotten’ requests

Even though we warn inept teenagers about the permanence of the Internet, in Europe, it's not so simple. Last year, the European Union enacted a "right to be forgotten" policy which lets anyone petition Google, directly, to have specific URLs removed from search procedures. More often than not, the petitioner is not affiliated with the site in question, the URL is simply host to embarrassing information that the requester would rather have withheld from search results. Since its official request process began on May 29, 2014, Google has been inundated with removal requests detailed in its latest transparency report.

Uber drops service in Kansas, says bill makes operation “impossible”

Uber drops service in Kansas, says bill makes operation “impossible”

Uber pushes and pushes and pushes and sometimes, when all that pushing fails to go the way it wants, it gives in to legal pressure. Such has ended up being the case in Kansas, where the ridesharing service has pointed toward a recent bill as the reason it will be leaving the state, saying it is the only state in the US where Uber has been forced to leave because of “unbalanced, backward regulations.” It suggests, though, that it might be back in the future.

Urbana. The name alone screams Moshi’s ‘briefcase’ is for the city-dwelling folks. The design suggests lawyers with ten-gallon hats won’t be buying this one, but the rest of us should take note. Not your typical briefcase, the Urbana brings refined sophistication to the busy urban professional; the ones who catch trains, hail cabs, and take day flights between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Lightweight, feature-rich, and downright cool, Urbana has a little something for everyone who needs to bring it all with them.

T-Mobile CEO may be hinting a merger is coming their way

T-Mobile CEO may be hinting a merger is coming their way

For quite some time, T-Mobile has been rumored for a merger or buyout. AT&T, Sprint, Dish, Iliad — you name them, T-Mobile has probably been rumored or in talks for a merger or acquisition. While T-Mobile CEO John Legere likes to slap away all talk of T-Mobile falling under the auspice of another company — and has even said he’s tired of talking mergers and acquisitions — he’s now making overtures that’s it’s inevitable, much like his boss has. In fact, Legere thinks it’s precisely how the industry will shake out over time.

First lawsuits against FCC’s net neutrality are filed

First lawsuits against FCC’s net neutrality are filed

The FCC just announced its ruling on net neutrality last month, and lawsuits are hitting the agency right off the bat. The FCC declared that the Internet is a utility, which allows the government to regulate it. As such, the FCC created net neutrality rules which treat all web traffic equally. Well, no one likes being told what to do, especially by the government. The telecom industry is up in arms over the FCC's net neutrality ruling, and now the lawsuits are beginning to trickle in. These lawsuits are part of an industry-wide effort to overturn what private companies believe are the FCC's unlawful regulations.

Uber given the banhammer in Germany…again

Uber given the banhammer in Germany…again

Uber has been hit again with legal woes in Germany, receiving today a ruling that its uberPOP drivers in particular must get the same permits as taxi drivers to continue picking up riders -- something that has haunted Uber across multiple countries and within several states, and that despite its best efforts otherwise have hampered its ability to operate the way it wants. This is the second time Uber has been given the banhammer in the nation, with this latest ruling reversing the ruling made in September that had overturned the original ban.

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Dish co-founder takes over as CEO — is mobile the next step?

Today, Dish is announcing their CEO is stepping down. Joseph Clayton took over for Dish co-founder Charlie Erdman in 2011, and was charged with transforming Dish’s business. He was at the head of the table as Dish acquired a massive portfolio of spectrum (relative to their needs), and also helped bring us Sling TV. In his absence, Erdman will reclaim the CEO role. The appointment of Erdman, who sat on Dish’s board since stepping down as CEO, isn’t temporary, either, suggesting even more change is afoot.

Verizon reportedly not interested in more big spectrum purchases

Verizon reportedly not interested in more big spectrum purchases

The latest FCC auction saw Verizon walking away with over $10 billion in new spectrum, further cementing their mobile network as the best available in the United States. Others, like Sprint and T-Mobile, either didn’t make an effort, or didn’t try to acquire much spectrum. The playing field might get a bit more even next time around, though, as Verizon is now saying they’ve got no desire to snap up more spectrum, and will instead focus on making what they have the best it possibly can be.

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

In a few short months, we’ve seen Microsoft go in a new direction with Windows. Possibly in an attempt to distance themselves from the aspirational (but ultimately confusing and misguided) Windows 8, we’re now getting Windows 10. Though Microsoft probably isn’t quite ready to bring Windows 10 to the consumer space, tomorrow will likely give us a better idea of what they’ve been working on since last time we heard from them. We won’t expect anything huge, but there’s still reason to be excited.
