Section 203 Contingency Planning - Prevent total loss of data and access

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon.

Some may be familiar with disaster recovery or continuity of business plans.

My question is, how might the Kiwi Farms community respond to varying levels of Section 230 or other refinements to US free speech laws?

In military operational planning there is the concept of the enemy's "most likely course of action" and "most dangerous course of action" which can help to guide the emphasis of planning.

Examples:
  • Most dangerous course of action: Sudden repeal of Section 230 resulting in a total shut down
  • Most likely course of action: A period of discussion followed by an announcement of a date that will mark the end of Section 230 protections

To my mind these are the primary characteristics that distinguish an Internet forum from other sites or social media:
  • Purpose: A focused purpose and controls to maintain the overall focus of discussions via topic-based threaded discussions (as opposed to Twitter or Parler which track topics via hashtags and is more focused on individuals)
  • Content: Post content is persistent, mostly text-focused but also includes the attached or archived media
  • User community: Includes individual users and appropriate roles
  • Access: Existing users can contribute new material, non-users can benefit from the collected content, and new users can gain access and contribute

Example mitigations:
  • Content: Archive of data can be shared via Torrent until it can be reconstituted in some other form

It's also possible that this is a futile exercise and there is either no interest or ability to continue something like this.

(a) Conditions for Termination.—In the case of any work other than a work made for hire, the exclusive or nonexclusive grant of a transfer or license of copyright or of any right under a copyright, executed by the author on or after January 1, 1978, otherwise than by will, is subject to termination under the following conditions:
(1)
In the case of a grant executed by one author, termination of the grant may be effected by that author or, if the author is dead, by the person or persons who, under clause (2) of this subsection, own and are entitled to exercise a total of more than one-half of that author’s termination interest. In the case of a grant executed by two or more authors of a joint work, termination of the grant may be effected by a majority of the authors who executed it; if any of such authors is dead, the termination interest of any such author may be exercised as a unit by the person or persons who, under clause (2) of this subsection, own and are entitled to exercise a total of more than one-half of that author’s interest.

(2)Where an author is dead, his or her termination interest is owned, and may be exercised, as follows:
(A)
The widow or widower owns the author’s entire termination interest unless there are any surviving children or grandchildren of the author, in which case the widow or widower owns one-half of the author’s interest.
(B)
The author’s surviving children, and the surviving children of any dead child of the author, own the author’s entire termination interest unless there is a widow or widower, in which case the ownership of one-half of the author’s interest is divided among them.
(C)
The rights of the author’s children and grandchildren are in all cases divided among them and exercised on a per stirpes basis according to the number of such author’s children represented; the share of the children of a dead child in a termination interest can be exercised only by the action of a majority of them.
(D)
In the event that the author’s widow or widower, children, and grandchildren are not living, the author’s executor, administrator, personal representative, or trustee shall own the author’s entire termination interest.

(3)
Termination of the grant may be effected at any time during a period of five years beginning at the end of thirty-five years from the date of execution of the grant; or, if the grant covers the right of publication of the work, the period begins at the end of thirty-five years from the date of publication of the work under the grant or at the end of forty years from the date of execution of the grant, whichever term ends earlier.

(4) The termination shall be effected by serving an advance notice in writing, signed by the number and proportion of owners of termination interests required under clauses (1) and (2) of this subsection, or by their duly authorized agents, upon the grantee or the grantee’s successor in title.
(A)
The notice shall state the effective date of the termination, which shall fall within the five-year period specified by clause (3) of this subsection, and the notice shall be served not less than two or more than ten years before that date. A copy of the notice shall be recorded in the Copyright Office before the effective date of termination, as a condition to its taking effect.
(B)
The notice shall comply, in form, content, and manner of service, with requirements that the Register of Copyrights shall prescribe by regulation.

(5)
Termination of the grant may be effected notwithstanding any agreement to the contrary, including an agreement to make a will or to make any future grant.

What's your problem with this OP?
