In an alarming new update to its user agreement released this week, PayPal has announced that it will assert copyright ownership over all intellectual property of anyone who uses its payment services.
The update comes in the aftermath of the announcement that eBay and PayPal will split apart into two separate companies.
Under the heading “Intellectual Property,” PayPal announces that it is introducing a new paragraph to its agreement, effective July 1, 2015, that will allow the company to “use content that you post for publication using the Services”.
“When providing us with content or posting content (in each case for publication, whether on- or off-line) using the Services, you grant the PayPal Group a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your moral rights and promise not to assert such rights against the PayPal Group, its sublicensees or assignees. You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any intellectual property right: your provision of content to us, your posting of content using the Services, and the PayPal Group’s use of such content (including of works derived from it) in connection with the Services.”
PayPal users reacted to the terms of agreement update by expressing their shock and confusion.
“Wow! Does this mean that anything I might funnel through Paypal will belong to them, and that they can do what they like with it, without consultation, interference or redress?” asked one respondent. “So, for example, my business website: they could override my copyright if I channel it through them in any of their services?”

Justin King (TFC) : Senator Diane Feinstein simultaneously demonstrated how little she knows about the First Amendment, explosives, and how the internet works when she suggested that specific bomb-making manuals should be removed.
Senator Feinstein issued a press release that reads:
“I am particularly struck that the alleged bombers made use of online bombmaking guides like the Anarchist Cookbook and Inspire Magazine. These documents are not, in my view, protected by the First Amendment and should be removed from the Internet.”
Luckily for America, the opinion of a woman who does not understand the decentralized and dynamic nature of the net is irrelevant in matters concerning the First Amendment.
However, staff members of The Fifth Column who have prior experience with explosives agree with Feinstein’s belief that that Anarchist Cookbook should be avoided. The rationale is very different, though. While nobody here believes that any knowledge is inherently bad, some of the information contained inside the Anarchist Cookbook is incomplete or inaccurate and could result in injury.
There are scant references to necessary safety procedures in the manual. At no point does it express the importance of lubricating contacting metals, for example. Metals that make contact may tend to spark. Creating random sparks while standing around a bunch of explosives is what is technically termed as “totally uncool” and is likely to anger anyone with you.
Contrary to Feinstein’s belief, the manufacture of explosives is not a complicated science. It’s basic chemistry. If rapidly expanding gasses are contained, it creates an explosion. The gentle reader probably has the elements necessary to make explosives and low-grade chemical weapons in their home right now.

Bitcoin evangelist Andreas M Antonopoulos has appeared before the Australian Senate as part of an inquiry into the local treatment of digital currencies.
The prominent bitcoin ‘guru’ made the case for bitcoin, saying that its unique architecture and payment mechanism had important implications for network access, innovation, privacy, individual empowerment, consumer protection and regulation.
Claiming that bitcoin represented a “unique opportunity in two areas for Australia”, Antonopoulos said:
“Bitcoin can introduce much needed competition in the retail payments industry, undercutting the expensive systems offered by credit and debit cards, whilst significantly improving security and privacy for consumers.”
“Secondly, the bitcoin industry can establish Australia at the forefront of the next wave of innovation of financial services. A wave that can extend financial services to more than two billion people throughout Southeast Asia, who are currently unbanked,” he continued.

A brilliant go-around, they got us good
By Shepard Ambellas
WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — Thursday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on and approved the end of the Internet as we know it.
That’s right the ‘information superhighway’ has just been obliterated by the passage of “Net Neutrality” which allows the FCC to regulate the once free and independent Internet.
Essentially it’s like putting a person or a checkpoint between point A and point B in which one may eventually have to check in with. Call me a conspiracy theorist but that would be a “gatekeeper” which proponents of the plan promised wouldn’t exist. Although this analogy may seem far-fetched to some, and hasn’t fully manifest itself yet, we will just have to wait and see. But rest assured there will be nothing neutral about Net Neutrality.
The whole “Net Neutrality” thing was made to sound good to everyone as they’ve sugar-coated it [their plan] for the dumbed-down masses, hoodwinking them into accepting it.
When past meets the present
Die-hard radio talk show host Howard Stern and others such as rapper Eminem have went toe-to-toe with the FCC on ‘freedom of speech’ issues and know good and well just how diabolic the FCC can truly be at times. And for that reason people like myself will never trust the FCC as nothing good has ever came from the agency.
The fact of the matter is the agency is only there to regulate information which we can watch, read, and listen to. They want to be the middleman between the content and our brains which will eventually lead to the full-on manipulation of and/or the suppression of information in which they [the powers-that-be] deem we don’t need to know.
And encase you didn’t know yet, as sheep, we are already on a ‘need to know’ basis. It’s the program that our masters have designed for us. They have subconsciously transplanted it into our minds slowly through many years of governmental mind control experimentation sessions. The brunt of it all started with the T.V., but has now morphed into what futurists would describe as an active environment, digitally speaking of course. Where man interacts with machine. They want to control cyberspace period.
Interestingly enough the final rules wont be published for several days which is seen by some as a ‘stall’ that may allow regulators to insert more legal muck; i.e. jargon, into the mix before the passage becomes viable law in just a few short months.
You see, just as Hitler positioned himself and his team above the populace of Germany in the 1930′s, the Obama Administration has done the same — driving the final nail into the proverbial coffin, representing the death of the Internet itself.
Moreover now under Executive Orders and National Security Presidential Directives, such as 51, the President of the United States has powers vested in him to shut off the Internet, which has now been classified as a “utility” under the new regulation, during any “crisis” or “national emergency”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the kill switch. The Internet kill switch.
You have to admit it was a brilliant go-around.
They got us good.
