outstanding.

man imagine if congress was warned 20 years ago the DMCA was a goddamn shit mess of a law and would certainly devolve into dystopianism.

Now even e-thots are using it as a censor button for when they get caught choking their dog or whatever.

The US ... trademark office? some office i'm not sure which.  just released a 200 page report saying the DMCA doesn't work, and the safe harbors need to be removed, companies that host user uploaded content being held responsible for trademark/copyright violation.

the ironic thing about that is that it ensures only the big incumbent could ever afford to legally operate a user content website then. it smacks of regulatory capture.

the real problem is that safe harbours de facto dont work because the law is a fuckin mess when you try to implement it, so most platforms pull first and ask questions later except the small guy never gets to ask questions because hes not listened to.

And Big Tech is famous for not having actual support departments, if theres something wrong with your account they dont give a rubbery fuck, theres 8 billion other people on this planet.

There's a protest outside Jeff Bezos' mansion in DC happening currently. Metro Police Department have closed off the street.

There's a DC-themed decorative guillotine on display. A fun fact about Bezos' home is that it is the largest in the city and cost $23 million. During its renovation, the project racked up more than $16,000 in parking tickets alone.

Apparently this mansion with intricate stone work is where Jeff Bezos lives
