LSR vs Memes

Memes sollen nur noch 128 mal 128 Pixel groß sein – Die Bundesregierung hat einen ersten ‚Diskussionsentwurf‘ für das neue Leistungsschutzrecht veröffentlicht. Dieses schränkt nun auch die Nutzung von Pressefotos und Videos für Memes und Vorschaubilder deutlich ein. … Der neu formulierte Paragraf 87g des Urheberrechtsgesetzes (UrhG) schreibt demnach vor, dass die Überschrift einer Presseveröffentlichung, ‚ein kleinformatiges Vorschaubild mit einer Auflösung von bis zu 128 mal 128 Pixeln‘ und eine „Tonfolge, Bildfolge oder Bild- und Tonfolge mit einer Dauer von bis zu drei Sekunden“ lizenzfrei genutzt werden dürfen. – Nachdem die EU im Frühjahr 2019 ein europaweites Leistungsschutzrecht für Presseverleger beschlossen hatte, müssen die Mitgliedstaaten die Urheberrechtsrichtlinie bis Mitte 2021 umsetzen.“


Tech vs Trump

Boundless CEO Xiao Wang immigrated from Nanjing, China as a child. He told GeekWire, ‚this rule absolutely would have put my family’s journey to the U.S. at risk.'“

These days, they’re also trying to brace students for a stark new reality: They may be vetted for jobs in part by artificial intelligence. … „…algorithms consider things such as word usage, pronouns and facial expressions to determine how likely a job candidate is to possess a specific attribute a client is looking for in a certain job, such as empathy or willingness to learn.“

Microsoft will be carbon negative by 2030 – While the world will need to reach net zero, those of us who can afford to move faster and go further should do so.
