The slippery slope

gholam mailed me these two

A licensed Singapore distributor of anime is following in the RIAA's footsteps, sending out prelitigation letters to suspected file-swappers and filing lawsuits.


Judging by the discussion - all seems as usual - the distributor can not provide any resemblance of modern service. And not interested in it. Cause this modern service clearly means more expenses and less profits for the distributor. The only way left is rattling the pen.

People of Bangkok vs. Greenpeace.

Greenpeace's protest against the lifting of a ban on open-field trials of genetically-modified (GM) papaya yesterday was met with an unexpected reaction from a crowd of onlookers.

The environmental group dumped eleven tonnes papayas in front of the Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry yesterday to make its objection to the lifting of the ban loud and clear to the government.

Passers-by took papayas dumped by Greenpeace, into their own hands, and ran off. via >
