Hey, i also pay taxes, i can't help it if the government then uses that money to pay police to kick people's doors down because they might have a couple of people over for drinks.

You get thrown in prison if you don't pay taxes. Taxes are collected, ultimately, at gunpoint. You entirely voluntarily spend money on shit consoooomer products.

What's depressing is that in most places this is working. I posted the picture of Abby beating the shit out of Ellie on 4chan /v/ with caption "is it okay to portray domestic violence in video games?" Shit was deleted almost immediately. I can only imagine how it is on twitter and reddit.
Us old 8nīggers didn't call it cuckchan for no reason.

tits are illegal now unless they are non binary or Japan makes them.

That's okay. I am fine with our Japanese overlords. Especially if they keep me in anime elf girls.

Reminder that anyone who bought a playstation is helping fund these DMCAs.

Like I said, I was going to with stimulus money (when I get it). Now? I think I'll just buy a Raspberry Pi, hook it up to the TV, and play my old fart games on emulator. Fuck modern gaming.

How long until every avatar on the site is a gif of the killing?

People want me to ditch the gay black avatar ASAP. If somebody makes that as an Avatar, I promise to adopt it for a time.

What is 17 U.S. Code
§ 512(f) with precedent set by Online Policy Group v. Diebold and how does it get Sony to fuck off other than sounding like a bunch of intimidating legal speak?

Briefly: Diebold was a case in which that company had to pay a shitton of financial penalties over a DMCA filed in bad faith.

Null is actually overselling its precedential value, because it was a district court case out of California. Another or higher court might find differently. However, because it was published, he can rely on it for its persuasiveness. 512(f) is a thing. Sony is taking a risk here.

The fact they censored the navel is what gets me. :story:

I stand with Mark Kern.

Isn't the real joke is we make fun of this tranny's figure? Belly-button up, some pinnacle of male fitness and then the chicken legs?
If anyone needs a reminder why it's so funny:

That thing reminds me of Russell from Bully.

I could also go with Andre the Giant.

I think 'Funded by Sony' could be a great tagline...

IANAL what-so-ever, but does anyone think that using the European arm of Sony to fuck with American sites was a strategic choice to make it harder to get a judgement on a counter-suit?

No. They're doing it because they are fucking retards who have no respect or understanding for a certain degree of permissiveness baked into US copyright law. They're trying to scare people. The euro mentality is that anything anybody doesn't like is, or ought to be, subject to takedown. When worlds collide.

Also, they might be trying to ferment a PR defense for when this goes pear shaped. That defense might be something along the lines that they hired some Romanian bitch who didn't know what they were doing, and Sony is totes sorry for that. Companies use these copyright enforcement agencies as a legal meat shield as much as anything (Google Rightshaven and note who got the brunt of the fallout.).

And yet the #1 way for beginner artists to make money in Japan is via Dōjinshi, which takes explicitly copyrighted characters and essentially puts them into monetized paperback fanfiction.
Maybe out of fear of people finding out they look up nudes of their own creations? I dunno, but Japanese copyright law states they hold complete creative control over it. They don't like your review or creation using their works, fuck you, take it down. And youtube will and will even strike you as well.

Dojinshi and indie music CDs are distributed largely in-person for a good reason. It's changed recently but the culture around media is still quite fucked due to their laws, even though a lot of porn artists are allowed to get away with stuff others might not.
