    The Ongoing Question of Data Ownership in the Cloud

    Cloud computing is a revolutionary phenomenon in the business world, one that has been going on for several years now. As such, it may come as a surprise to some that the questions surrounding data ownership in the cloud remain an ongoing dilemma -- a complicated issue that’s still far from being resolved. It’s one of the biggest reasons many companies are reluctant to embrace the cloud. After all, why risk sending valuable data into the cloud without a guarantee that it will still be yours in the end? While organizations and cloud providers have been struggling to come up with a workable solution to the dilemma, progress has still been made on the issue. Even so, many questions still remain, and businesses would be wise to take proper precautions when making a major transition to the cloud.

  • The Clash of Culture, Copyright, and Business

    Copyright Criminals, which airs its documentaries on PBS, has an upcoming show on the rise of sampling in hip-hop music. While, the documentary focuses on copyright laws covering music it's not too difficult to apply lessons learned for other content including text found on web sites. You may notice that I currently don't specify a copyright or Creative Commons license on my site. Where do I stand on the issue? I pretty much follow US Copyright laws which basically says using excerpts from an…

  • Tech Support Catches Thief

    This story from InfoWorld shows that crime doesn't pay. After a thief stole a printer for making driver's licenses, his call to the manufacturer's tech support line requesting driver software lead to his arrest. The story then goes on to say that although the thief had stolen the computer connected to the printer, the computer "was locked with a key".  I wonder if that was a key for a physical lock on the case which prevented the computer to boot up or an authentication key…

  • CNET: Web ad blocking may not be (entirely) legal

    We Americans can be so stupid at times.  In the country of "land of the free", we spend too much of our efforts working to restrict the freedom of others. Tomorrow's legal fight may be over Web browser add-ons that let people avoid advertisements. These add-ons are growing in functionality and popularity, which has led legal experts we surveyed this week to speculate about when the first lawsuit will be filed. If ad-blockers become so common that they slice away at publishers' revenues, "I…

  • Baseline: Best Buy Officials Concede Dual-Site System

    This kind of stuff is just plain wrong. The confusion stems from two visually identical sites that Best Buy employees can show customers. The sites have only a handful of minor functionality differences, with the key difference being that the prices are sometimes different, said Chap Achen, director of order management for Best Buy. (Complete Story)Late last year, I had an experience as a customer that leads me to believe that there are some problems with the value system and culture over at…

  • Opinion: Google News, Bloggers, and the Belgian courts

    From time to time we like to see the giants fall.  However, I think in this particular case if the giant falls so does the little guy.  If the Belgian court's recent ruling against Google becomes the "standard" that all sites will be judged, the ruling would likely have a negative effect for most bloggers and the readers who visit those blogs.
