Why The GOP Wants To Break Your Spam Filter: GOP Candidate Tricked Gullible Voters Into Funding Him With Misleading Spam Emails

Jul 20, 2022

from the the-gop-takes-you-all-for-suckers dept Over the last few months we’ve been covering this bizarre story of how Republican politicians, pushed by their preferred spamming provider (which misrepresented a study on how email providers treat political spam), have been falsely claiming that Google is “censoring” their political emails. They’ve also been pushing a law that would require email providers not to label politician emails as spam. In response, Google caved a bit and propo ...read more

More Issues With Copyright Enforcement At Scale: YouTube Reinstates Videos After False Claims

Jul 20, 2022

from the it-keeps-happening dept It’s no secret that Techdirt believes YouTube’s copyright enforcement program is an absolute mess. On the one hand, it’s difficult to be too hard on the company. After all, it is trying to figure out how to enforce draconian copyright laws in countries like America at a scale that is absolutely absurd. On the other hand, the way it works today is so wide open for fraud and abuse, that it’s literally a challenge to pick out which of a ton of stories I w ...read more

Court Denies Immunity To Child Protection Workers Who Allowed An NYPD Officer To Abuse His Son To Death

Jul 20, 2022

from the cop's-word-against-yours-means-the-cop-almost-always-wins dept The public expects cops to be better people than they are. Maybe they have the same weaknesses but having the training and experience to overcome them. But when you’re a cop, you’re encouraged to turn interactions into altercations and solve most problems with violence. And when all else fails, you can always just lock someone up. Is it any wonder law enforcement is home to an alarming number of domestic abusers? One ...read more

Student Expelled Over Off-Campus Nazi Joke Can Continue To Sue The School, Says Appeals Court

Jul 20, 2022

from the not-exactly-'fuck-cheer,'-but-then-what-is? dept Another school has learned it can’t discipline students for off-campus behavior, especially in light of the Supreme Court’s “fuck cheer” decision. Teens do stupid things. Sometimes they do them at school and the school is free to punish them. Sometimes they do them elsewhere and that’s where the limits kick in. That’s what the Cherry Creek School District has just been informed of by the Tenth Circuit Appeals Court. Its de ...read more

This Week In Techdirt History: July 10th – 16th

Jul 20, 2022

from the the-annals dept Five Years Ago This week in 2017, as a new study shed more light on America’s terrible broadband access situation, many people were gearing up for a day of protest in support of net neutrality. After long being holdouts, Facebook and Google finally joined, followed by the laughable move of ATT getting on board, though most of the telecom industry was feebly trying to deflate the protest with its own think tank campaign. But the FCC was saying it couldn’t do anyt ...read more

Would Meta Really Shut Down Facebook And Instagram In The EU Over Data Transfer Rules?

Jul 20, 2022

from the this-could-get-interesting dept Just a few weeks back we talked about how the US’s unwillingness to fix the way the NSA collects internet data could basically mean that most of the big US internet services cannot work in the EU. That article was about Google, and it goes through the background and history of the various US/EU privacy data sharing agreements, and how each one has been tossed out by EU courts in large part because of the NSA surveillance techniques brought to light b ...read more

OAN Starts Attacking Verizon, The Last Cable Giant Willing To Platform Its Conspiratorial Gibberish

Jul 20, 2022

from the bite-the-hand-that-feeds-you dept Fri, Jul 15th 2022 05:32am - Karl Bode When last we checked in with right-wing propaganda network One America News (OAN), it was suffering some kind of embolism for being kicked off of DirecTV. Despite a lot of attention, not that many people actually watch the channel, so DirecTV finally kicked it aside. This was distorted by OAN and numerous key Republicans into a claim that the conspiracy theory floating outlet was being “unfairly censored. ...read more

Microsoft Mapped Broadband Affordability Gaps Because The U.S. Government Couldn’t Be Bothered To

Jul 17, 2022

from the can't-fix-what-you-can't-measure dept Fri, Jul 15th 2022 10:47am - Karl Bode We’ve long noted how U.S. broadband maps are a bit of a dumpster fire. U.S. taxpayers have spent more than $350 million for FCC broadband maps that overstate broadband availability and speeds, downplay widespread monopolization and consolidation, and can’t even be bothered to measure affordability, one of the biggest obstacles to widespread adoption. You only need to spend a few minutes to plug your ...read more

Arizona Makes It Illegal To Record Cops From Less Than Eight Feet Away

Jul 17, 2022

from the is-that-8-cop-feet-or-8-civilian-feet? dept Courts (with the rare exception) are in agreement: there’s a First Amendment right to film cops. With every citizen carrying a camera these days, there’s a lot more filming happening. And those recordings have often proven key when cops face criminal charges for violating rights or, you know, murdering people. It’s little wonder cops aren’t thrilled about the recordings they can’t control. But that should be a cop problem that g ...read more
