Now, what was previously considered a conspiracy theory has increasingly become a legitimate (or at least tolerable) line of inquiry. Read more

CIA: We can’t prove a negative so we can’t definitively say it didn’t come from a lab but it’s super, super unlikely.

This ruling is like saying “a body has to have a heart and the heart has to pump blood, and you can’t copyright that, but you can copyright the details of how the heart does it”. So Google copied the idea of having a heart and which blood vessels connect to it and what it does in general, but built their own heart Read more

I’ve been a software developer for more than 35 years. This was a good and very important decision. It doesn’t really matter the amount of the code. It’s more as if Oracle was claiming only they could make Phillips screws and screwdrivers. Not exactly, of course, but it's something like that.

This is like telling a bank it shouldn’t have remembered to go back and lock the safe they almost forgot to lock because the police wanted to catch the guys who were gonna rob it, without first telling the bank they suspect a robbery will happen.
