Is it bad that I have been
since I can remember...
When I was in first grade, I took apart an RC car and receiver which was and still is governed by strict fcc codes, attempted to make the car faster by pumping more batteries into it. I also, broke the law when I put way more power through the transmitter than was required because I wanted to race my car all the way to the end of the street. So my first grade self should have been fined and jailed.
It's commonplace for kids under 18 to have loads of copyright 'infringed' material. This kind of stupid crap just goes to point out how ignorant and how detached Americans are from our politics, because our politics are just a giant joke with so many things that are morally fucked that it's not even funny.. Why? Greed and money... here's one solution
i have found, but I haven't looked into how effective it can be or how legitimate it is... Looking into it. Action is the only way you can change this crap... Or join the trolls, file a patent that's so similar to the company owned design, then sue them for infringement.
I have read article after article of people being sued, and even their entire lives ruined because they left their wifi open (copyrighted porn)... sued isn't the worst part. The government is trying to put innocent people in prinson (child pornography, takes a linux laptop and 5 minutes to break any wifi pass). I'd go thorugh and find you some links... but a) i have read these articles years ago, and b) I don't have the time. C) i'm not going to go to the length it takes to CYA on linking you to the programs to crack the wifi.
What I WILL do though is let you know that your sources need polished and you also need to go hunt down the sources of the information in these articles... Often times the source chain is circular
Look at the click bait on that web page. That's not a realiable news outlet. I'm sorry, it's just
pubmed is a great source for research articles (the source) and you can find out who FUNDED THE PROJECT
arstechnica.com is a good all around reasonable outlet for news.
