Dell says the certificate was associated with Dell Foundation Services as part of a support tool intended to make it easier for support personnel to help customers. Dell even thanked Hanno Böck, Joe Nord, and Kevin Hicks for bringing the threat to the company’s attention. Dell has issued an uninstaller app and instructions to manually remove the certificate.

|- Google will pick select videos they "believe represent clear fair uses which have been subject to DMCA takedowns" and indemnify them for court costs for up to $1 million|
- “agreeing to defend them in court if necessary.”
- In Lenz v. Universal Music court held right holder can be held liable if fair use not considered before issuing a takedown notice
- “Please don’t contact us asking to protect your video; we’ll find you if we’re able to offer you this protection.”
- Aim is to build case law since lawyers are risk averse and usually recommend against fighting a case on a fair use defense
“While we can’t offer legal protection to every video creator—or even every video that has a strong fair use defense—we’ll continue to resist legally unsupported DMCA takedowns as part of our normal processes. “
|What is YouTube Takedown Process|
- Content ID claim
- dispute claim, copyright owner has 30 days to respond
- Appeal, copyright owner has 30 days to respond
- Submit Counter-notification (can risk lawsuit) tales 10 days to complete
|WHAT is Fair Use in US?|
Based on precedent and legislation judges use four factors to resolve fair use disputes
the purpose and character of your use - Primary factor
- transformative, added value, review, commentary, criticism
the nature of the copyrighted work
- facts more often may be copied, published vs. unpublished
the amount and substantiality of the portion taken
- can’t take the “heart” of the work
the effect of the use upon the potential market
- does it deprive originator of income?
- undermine new or potential market?
|Pick of the day:|
|Hi Tom, Patrick, and the DTNS Nation--|
I was listening to Patrick's reflections on netiquette today as I was strolling down the Temescal Alley in Oakland, sipping a hand-pour coffee, eating artisanal charcuterie, and stroking my absurd facial hair.
I remembered that, as a young man in the late '90s, I discovered "Miss Manners' Guide to the Turn of the Millennium", a guide to the vexing vagaries of email, bulletin board systems, and chat rooms. It was a very interesting and engaging read, and I was able to see through the individual suggestions about technology to the universal rules of decency and kindness for others that underpinned them. It doesn't teach you how to be fake or phoney, but instead presents you with those awkward and challenging moments in life and offers graceful techniques to handle them. It really helped me find little ways to show kindness and respect to others, both online and off.
So before we lament that "kids today have no one to teach them the rules explicitly", I would recommend her new book “Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior” which claims to be updated with modern scenarios we encounter online. Alternately, “Emily Post's Manners in a Digital World” is another worthwhile guide to netiquette in the modern era.
Thanks for the great podcast, and be kind online!

|Greetings Tom and guest from chilly and grey Hamilton, Ontario.|
Just listened to DTNS 2630 from November 23, 2015 and heard the one listener's email about drones be prohibited in a park in Japan. Well, last spring, took my girls on a hike at a local park and came across this . . .
Of course, more troubling was coming across this . . .IMGA8315.JPG
Not sure which is worse, the fact that he was here in Hamilton, or the fact that he misspelled his own name . . .
|Facial Recognition Reactions Served Three Ways|
|I enjoyed your segment on shoplifting and fighting it by using face recognition technology. |
My dad's uncle was a county sheriff down in Southern Missouri for many years. After he retired he took a part time job as a Wal-Mart greeter just for fun. He knew a lot of people in the area and that included both good and bad. He knew the criminal element and also who to keep an eye on when they walked into the store. Though primitive it helped to reduce theft at least a little bit.
Enjoy the show,
|We call naughty people like that in the UK scallies! |
It made me think however as a parallel in the UK many petrol stations use a system called shark which spots and reads number plates and warns the petrol station should that person have driven off without paying at other petrol stations so I think it's a fair representation of what could be done.
I think however it would need some kind of human intervention to make sure that it doesn't mis identify people.
I guess the main thing is though that it would disincentivize people from coming into the shop if they knew that their face could be recognised?

|Alan Char: I have so many mixed feelings about the facial recognition story. First, I completely disagree with the idea that because it's they're store, they can do whatever they want. There are definite civil liberty limitations.|
