Just a heads up to all my flisties. I found five stories of mine pilfered to this site, so this is no joke! Even if you're not a prolific writer, go and check, they scraped all those stories with bots (conceivably the reason AO3 was down a couple of weeks ago) and without the consent of the OTW.

Some assholes are pulling fic from AO3 and other places without the authors' permission and putting them up on their own site where they make money off them with ads etc. Please search it to see if your stuff is there (you can search by author), then check here for more info, like how to demand they be taken down.

I found four of my own fic, randomly selected by a bot it seems. I sent them an email, demanding they remove my fic, although that was before I read the very helpful instructions provided in the link above. Maybe I should send them another. OTW is on the case, hopefully that will help shut this shit down.

I'm fucking furious. Assholes making money of fanfic writers' free but very hard labour. Not to mention how it fucks with the whole "fair use" idea. Fuck you, assholes. Fuck you very hard in the ass with a barbed wire.

... yeah, you read right, I'm using LJ-post day to do a football post. I purposefully didn't watch until I heard the fireworks of the first goal, because if I watch purposefully our national team tends to lose their games (I was thinking about abstaining from the finale completely, but I don't have a that much inflated sense of my own importance to the universe) but I was really not prepared for what I witnessed tonight.
I just want to say that with all the analyzing and emoting and stuff going on right now, the thing that struck me most was how well all the players treated each other on the field and after the game, that was a true class act for both sides, especially in light of the stakes involved. That's true competitive spirit and commendable.

I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away and will be replaced by the mysterious "Photo Album". Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

When they marched for the women's right to vote 100 years ago, they were imprisoned, put into straight jackets and force fed until they vomited blood. They fought for your right to own property, to have access to birth control and your right to an education. This video is fun and clever and hits on some hard truths. And it makes you ask yourself...what I am willing to do today to fight back and protect our rights as women and citizens?

LOL... Another fandom troll uncovered. At least we all hope she's a troll. But I kinda gotta share this. If you want a good laugh and a good cry over the eternal stupidity of some people, brace yourselves for this dashing lady with a rather dubitable sense of style and a seriously overinflated sense of her own importance:


Here’s a tip: this is what real writing looks like. I know you all try to define your pitiful lives by stealing the characters and ideas of others, so I’m going to give you a free lesson on what good writing looks like, so that you can apply it and feel better about yourselves.

Some people just can't be helped. In every sense of the word. I'm really not sure what she's trolling against but yeah. It made me laugh with how bad it was so I'm going to count that as a win. There really is a talent in writing this badly.
