HR 3261: Database and Collections of Information Misappropriation Act [Jan. 28th, 2004|09:06 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
In stupid law news, HR 3261, the "Database and Collections of Information Misappropriation Act", approved Jan 21st by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, allows databases to be copyrighted, even if they're just collections of otherwise-available facts, quotes, etc.

So, uh, better not crawl LiveJournal for data.... that's now illegal.

*rolls eyes*

totally random and I am sorry totally off topic, but noticing that you have over 200 friends and on your friends of list over 600, I wondered what makes you decide whether to add a friend or not?

Re:

If either I know them in real life or want to read them.

Is there any other legit reason?
