If napster were written as open source, no authors attached to the software, just released into the wild with no way of knowing who wrote it (and therefore no one to hold accountable), how would have copyright law evolved then?
who could Dre and Lars sue?
if we assume no central index server is needed/used, then we likely would have an entirely different internet today.
Since there is no one entity to take blame, and since governments cant arrest the entire userbase, i would think it likely all of media would go apeshit, lobby the mortal fuck out of congress, and all filesharing would be banned entirely.
or congress would force all internet users to install a root certificate issued by their ISP in order to use the internet. such a certificate would log every byte transferred by the user.

I'm stuck and looking for advice.
I'm building a PC and as much as I'm on the Ryzen hype train, I'm not sure which processor to get, and maybe you all can help me decide.
I play a lot of games and I'll do some streaming but not regularly, and I'll also do some video editing and photoshop, but I have 64gb of RAM planned to be installed in my PC, which may help the Quad-core processor with workloads. Dwarf Fortress on the other hand would greatly benefit from the cache and cores of the 1700.
I also play on a lot of emulators which I've read benefit from the single-core speeds of the 7700k, but on the other hand I may also run a few virtual machines which would benefit from the eight cores of the 1700.
I'm sort of deadlocked, the 7700k and the 1700 seem to be of equal importance, but maybe I'm missing something. Any help is appreciated.
This. But seriously get 1700 anyway, because you can upgrade to Zen 2 without repurchasing a motherboard. Get 1800 if you're feeling particularly adventurous, better overclocking headroom.
Why do gaming laptops look like shit?

Because you're only looking at the ones that look like shit

I took a course on Matlab for my major. As a first coding language it was pretty hard, but I eventually got the hang of it (sorta).
I want to get into learning C++, since what I plan on doing later on is robotics. What should be the next language I learn in order to ease into it? I was told by this one guy that I should go for python, then C+, then C++. Any opinions?
I just installed lineage 14 on my droid 4, everything is working flawlessly, except for some reason any file I attempt to download in Firefox fails. The downloads work in the built-in browser, but not Firefox. How do I fix this?
Just found out my parents unironically bought one whole Buttcoin for ~3500USD right under my nose.
your parents will lose a thousand dollars, then maybe dip harder back to a grand, bitcoin is 93 percent chinese and should not be fucked with.
