If I write a single line of lyric for a song, it is immediately copyright with rights reserved to me. I can take action to make the status of the work more easily proven, but this does not change its legal state as my copyrighted work.
So, how are content publishers going to know they are clear of copyright issues with *me* when you publish any lyric, as I may not have made certain works public, but still own rights to them?

Where is this worldwide database of copyrighted sentences/lyrics/musical phrases/songs/images/artworks/sketches/ typefaces/ videos/ processes/ designs/ etc.etc. .....
to which a content publisher can compare uploaded content to ensure it does not infringe?
A neat aircraft I was able to fly [under instruction] on my family vacation near the south of France. A Jodel DR400 Eco, with a diesel engine running on Jet A1 fuel, controlled by two independent FADECS. Has automatic propeller pitch control to boot.
Really nice aeroclub there with a great airport mostly to themselves, a helpful CFI and fair prices for tours and instruction.
There's this default assumption that what you see in-person is the real person & what you see online, if it's different from the real person, is fake.
Obs this doesn't apply to literally using a fake photo or similar. But I've always felt like it's only in text that I can really "be myself." I can express my emotions better/more freely in text, (or text+emoji), my personality comes through better in text than in person. So if you want to know who I really am, meet me online. #actuallyautistic

loving everybody equally can have the unfortunate effect of seeming like you love nobody at all
i wish people belonged to communities more than individualized relationships because it would eliminate the need for people to rely on getting what their idea of love and validation from a single "significant other" as theyre called
im not even talking about polyamoury here, i just think theres a strong need for other kinds of connections to be explored, only then i believe can a person feel like they truly belong in the world. the western idea of relationships is very toxic, the idea of finding "the perfect one" is dangerous.
It's like with telecoms and net neutrality.
Telecoms: online content is using too much of our bandwidth, infrastructure costs a lot of money, content sites need to pay up!
People: uhm, but nobody would be buying Internet access from you guys without the content. Creating content costs a lot of money. Perhaps Telecoms need to pay the content sites instead?
Telecoms: *blank stare* *back away slowly*
I love the hypocrisy of Microzon Facegoopple and their ilk regarding #GDPR and similar regulations.
Corp: Selling user data is ok and users are perfectly fine with it, because they get their personalized ads. Precious precious personalized ads.
EU: Ok, then show them this information clearly and ask them for consent explicitly.
Corp: OH NOES THAT WILL TURN USERS AWAY!!1!
EU: Wait, I thought users wanted it? You wouldn't be lying about that, would you, eh?
GDPR emails from orgs that are seeking Opt-In are great. I can ignore them, not bother to look up their site, and thereby instantly opt out.
GDPR is being misinterpreted by a number of small operators that emailed me, reminding me that I can always unsubscribe if I want to change my communications preferences.
Doth Not Equal Opt-In, friends.
