  •  I don't get your question, sorry n/t (0+ / 0-)

    My apologies to students who took my U.S. Government class in the 90s: evidently the Constitution doesn't limit Presidential power after all. Who knew?

      I use dkos to post whatever I want

      I happen to have not gotten voted off yet, but I don't follow any editorial rules, just the basic diary rules which say how the technology works, basically.

      You seem to say kos is legally responsible for what I've written because he makes money from the site.

      Well, free ISPs are ISPs that give free internet service but usually there is a banner, at least, at the top of a special browser the whole time.

      They make money from me being on the internet, just as kos does, but are presumably not liable for what I write on my web page.  Just like an ISP, currently, they have to respond to cease and desist letters, but not make preemptive judgements.

      I'm asking if I'm wrong... I'm not a lawyer, but my work has involved many kinds of IP... so I understand these ideas but perhaps I am wrong about the ISP, and it IS more liable than a regular ISP that charges a monthly fee.

      •  I've explained this elsewhere (0+ / 0-)

        Go read the Free Republic case that's cited in both my diary and OPOL's, for starters.

          I read the conversation.

          It's all about the exposure to you, but not me, I have already said as well that kos does not have to expose himself, but on the actual issue, can one claim that dkos is a self-publishing tool and win in court?

          you are saying it's not worth kos finding out, and I'm not saying he should.

          suffice it to say that this is one of the problem with for profit political organizations.
