    That would appear to be in direct contradiction of the IPC Privacy Policy which I quoted earlier. It may, as has been pointed out, have IP implications as well - I don't remember assigning IPC rights to sell my Ip to a third party, although I did give them rights to use it themselves.

    So is all this a prelude to a compensation claim payout?

    No. It will cause IPC to throw their hands up in horror and close down all the forums as they are just too much trouble to administer. We don't know what Natalie's remit is as administrator, but being as we never hear from her perhaps she is tasked with a viability study and sends Richard onto the front line.

    I don't post anything on these forums that I am not prepared to be seen anywhere else. Frankly enough website owners already have far more info about me than IPC do.

    It is time that people started to get real about the internetworkweb. If you treasure every utterance as a work of art and want the protection of the CDPA 1988, then maybe forums aren't the place for you.

    And if you fancy a civil prosecution maybe you should be watching the BBC 1 series "See You In Court". Eye watering costs are the order of the day.

    Another person's thoughts about you are outside of your jurisdiction.

    Oh don't spoil it. The hysterical children are amusing to watch. There is bugger all info on us stored in ybw servers in terms of actual user info, and nothing you can't find elsewhere...what we post about ourselves gives far more away, as I've demonstrated a few times over the years, mainly to people that say they haven't posted anything that would identify them. I used to send them a pm with their full name, date of birth, wifes name and date of birth, names of children, where they worked etc.
    Normally caused an instant change of mind about what they had posted.

    My rattle throwing is nothing to do with my utterances or even my details, it just the piss taking by large corporations like IPC who insist that we sign some sort of agreement before we can join, bring us to task when we breach those rules and yet flaunt the laws of privacy -even their own.And to cap it all sell it to a third party without any consent ( their rules not mine).
    Basically how would you like to be bombarded with porn site spam (as lakesailer must be already )or even have "kiddyporn " content on your hard drive THAT WOULD MAKE YOU SIT UP AND LOOK WOULDN'T IT !!!

    All they had to do was ask.( yes I would have refused , maybe I would have gone to the other site and signed up , there again maybe not --MY CHOICE ).

    Secondly there is such a thing as "profiling " whereas an organisation does nothing else but collect data on you (by what ever means) in order to either target advertising or worse to defraud using YOUR profile.
    Organisations like Google read your mail in order to personalise their advertising, they also collect data on you by loading cookies onto your hard drive in order to collect further data on you.
    And on and on etc etc, So every chance you get you must stem this flow of data before it gets so far out of hand it will be too late.

    The majority who think they know the internet DON'T, there is a huge case of naivety around whereas people think they know the net but in fact don't realise the total power and its capabilities or at least its near future capabilities "Big brother" is here and is watching, and watching closer and closer as time and technology progresses. Every single thing you do on the net or electronically is logged and stored all it takes is the right software and this is available to do what ever you want with it.

    First they came for the Communists

    Because I was not a Communist

    You guys both work in IP, you know the issues. If we dont object when these fundamental rights are being eroded then we deserve all we get.


    You both have profited from these laws. Shame.

    I have to care about IP issues in my work too, although it's not directly my job to address them. Most of this thread is, frankly, ignorant hysteria, but there is a genuine issue at the core of it. It's not in practice a serious one, it's not going to affect anybody's daily life, but ultimately the proposed plan seems to involve transferring copyright material without having the right to do so, and it's as well to ensure that that gets properly looked into. Far smaller issues than this regularly absorb a great deal of time and effort in my workplace.
