US Supreme Court rules in favor of Google in largest-ever programming copyright case

https://www.rt.com/usa/520167-google-vanquishes-oracle-scotus-copyright/

SCOTUS has ruled that tech giant Google did not violate copyright law by reusing some 11,330 lines of code and other elements of fellow Big Tech player Oracle’s Java platform to build its wildly popular Android OS.

The $8 billion copyright case against Google landed heavily in the tech giant’s favor on Monday, with six judges finding in favor of the company and just two dissenting in support of Oracle.

Google had argued its reuse of the code in question was in line with “long-settled, common practice[s] in the industry,” insisting there is no copyright protection governing “purely functional, noncreative computer code” of the sort it lifted from Oracle to build Android in 2007.

>>Supreme Court justices seem poised to allow copyrights on APIs.
afaik its just how they operate, as their judgements are the highest authority, they try to narrow it down as much as possible. But that means any use/duplication of API will be recognized as "fair use", even if it did end up being copyrighted (which they didnt take a stance on)

https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/5/22367851/google-oracle-supreme-court-ruling-java-android-api
>In 2014, a federal appeals court ruled that the APIs could be subject to copyright in a controversial decision overturning a ruling by Judge William Alsup. (The Supreme Court declined to hear Google’s appeal the following year, letting the appellate ruling stand.) But that decision left open the question of whether Google’s implementation had violated the Java copyright, and Google launched a second phase of the case arguing that the Android APIs constituted fair use. In 2018, the same appellate court ruled that Google’s implementation was not fair use, putting the company at risk of up to $8.8 billion in damages. Today’s decision overturns that ruling, allowing Google to continue its use of the Android code without threat of a copyright claim.

>Notably, then-President Trump’s solicitor general had formally petitioned the Supreme Court to leave the appellate ruling in place, effectively siding with Oracle in the fight.

Emacs is a hacked together abomination but it's still the best text editor and operating system in existence.
The next Emacs release should be much faster because it will be GTK native and GCCEmacs will be merged.
But you are not totally wrong. Eventually, Emacs will either need a revolutionary overhaul that will force a total rewrite of several essential functions in order to become multithreaded OR it will need to be retired in favor of a new editor that is built for the 21st century. All of the fine tuned optimizations we are seeing at the Elisp level are trying to delay the inevitable.

Depends on what I'm writing. If it's something really short I use nano, if I'm writing something longer in C I'll use emacs.
I do some math stuff so I use python a lot, and I've recently found Spyder which makes my life much easier and is actually fun, though it makes my shitty laptop have a heart attack whenever I open it.

It seems to be a healthy project to me. Emacs is still getting plenty of bugfixes and some new features. By software standards it is ancient, and it does have a lot of baggage because of it, but I did not see any signs of it falling apart, at least as an outsider. I don't follow the development mailing list itself, only the emacs-news, so I might have missed the warning signs.

Emacs can do a lot that would surprise you. With pdf-tools it can display PDF files pretty much as good as a standalone PDF viewer: https://github.com/politza/pdf-tools There's a real-time video game written in it: https://github.com/fitzsim/slime-volleyball

I actually went from using notebooks to using Spyder, though I still use notebooks for some things, usually writing the code in spyder and then moving it to a notebook.

The only reason I'd use colab is because as far as I understand you run the code on google's servers rather than the laptop, but I actually have some access to a cluster anyway.

The glow is everywhere already.

Plus this sort of application inherently is large scale, so the ordinary user cannot easily replicate its capabilities.

But even if individualized privacy tech. can't stop it, proper organization can render it superfluous.

A few things:
Firstly, an article wrote for this project is about thinking outside the box and a positive examination of 'Security through Obscurity'. This piece comes with a block of code that will per configuration will insta-kill all networking, wipe RAM and swap before either delete or encrypt everything on your hard drive as soon as your earplugs are unplugged, the use case would be for example to counter how DPR was arrested and it's not as obvious as having a usb tie to your wrist …anyways! what I wanted to ask is there anyone who would be so kind as to test this, give me specs of your machine and speeds of the softwares to do it's jobs? And is there any improvements or critique of the concept that you have?

Secondly, I've been writing a news section a la picrel but with hacking and radical tech related news (such as unionization in the tech sector which incidently i'd love an article on if anyone has one or wants to make one), i,f yo have a interesting tech happening that has a lefty bent please post, thanks.

Also, I did not know where to put this but I have a feature request: A Gitlab instance. It would be a great thing for the community, I can see no downsides at all.

It's a walkie-talkie for text messages. LoRa operates on frequencies which were used by paging companies in the past, and still used for radio keychains for cars/garage doors, they're colloquially called ISM band.
I don't like presence of bluetooth and gps functions on this thing, the idea glows suspiciously,a s well as lack of publicised fdroid distribution. The board should connect to phone via USB to avoid insecure wireless Bluetooth link to something you carry on yourself already, drop the ridiculous battery, and since phones already have GPS, it shouldn't have another one either.

Using a DNS server that does not harvest one's requests will be quite probably more private than default ISP DNS servers that might surreptitiously collect information on the domain names being resolved.
Use a hosts file to get to sites if absolutely paranoid.
On a separate topic, usage of a DNS SEC capable resolver is probably also a good thing.

How do I stop being neurotic about privacy? I'm seriously considering turning down a job offer just because thanks to this pandemic I'm going to have to use Google Meet every day for a few minutes. I don't want to give my data to the basilisk but this honestly feels like a losing battle. Should I just give up and perish like a dog?

I really don't get the privacy-whoring. Like sure, its retarded to give your private info and such, but being paranoid about your email links, YouTube, game or porn preferances and personal politics? Like, you aren't really giving away your privacy. Its just going to be some algorithm in a database that will scan you and send apropiate adds to annoy you. Whats the worse that could happen? Some technofeudal fascist purge? I mean, for one its so unrealistic that its like being a germaphobe, and two, remember that CIA had the data about 9/11 collected, just never got around to review it in time. So unless you are some /dead/ schizo doing epic illegalism, there really just doesn't seem to be that much reason to go full on data hermit.

Stopping crimes has never been the point of mass surveillance, it's been noted many times that the NSA's PRISM program has more data than they could ever possibly sift through. The point is to collect things that can be used to intimidate or silence people who threaten their power.

Is the mass surveillance really relevant outside of the Imperial Core?
I live in a periphery country as a shut in prole and haven't had social media in 6 years but still have a google account which I rarely use even if it has some personal data required for government procedures linked to it which makes me reluctant to delete it.
