BBC NEWS | UK | Lords issue landmark abuse ruling

  Does this ruling make anyone else uncomfortable?  I wholly support the ruling which enables, for example, victims of child abuse to pursue their abusers beyond the previous six year limit. That seems fair and sensible.  However, in the specific case of the victim of the man the tabloids called the "Lotto Rapist", I am […]

Oh dear…

this made me cringe for so many reasons…

The Off-shoring of Off-shorers

No real surprises in this article by Sramana Mitra.  It appears that the cost advantages which India and other countries have previously enjoyed are being eroded through wage inflation and the lack of key skills.  The cost advantage has dropped from 1:10 to 1:3.  This was always going to be the case.  The real question […]

Further to the recent news of the US Industry body suing customers, the UK is proposing to update UK law to legalise the copying of CDs onto PCs – providing that neither the digital copy nor the original CDs are then re-sold or distributed.

The Death Throes of Dinosaurs

What do they hope to achieve?  The Recording Industry Association of America is suing an individual for recording his own CDs onto his own PC.
