HAPPY FRIDAY!!! We got here. We are safe, healthy, have our basic needs met and for most, persons in our lives who love us and of course we love back. What more do we need, really? I hope you put that in perspective if your week wasn’t so hot.
Okay, so happy Friday and do check out this funny video that takes on Copyright and Piracy claims. It’s hilarious. It shows how we can be rather extreme, at least in the US, with the whole copyright infringement/piracy push. If we are not careful, even clicking the rewteet or facebook share button will now constitute infringement and require permission to retweet or share on facebook.
