Six Strike Policy Launch Scheduled For Monday, Feb. 25; Copyright Alert System Could Hurt Open Wi-Fi

antipirate

After years of planning and at least two delays, the anti-piracy Copyright Alert System, aka the so-called six-strikes policy, will launch Monday, according to TorrentFreak.
Six Strike Policy Launch Scheduled For Monday, Feb. 25; Copyright Alert System Could Hurt Open Wi-Fi

The six-strikes policy was devised by entertainment lobbying groups, including the Motion Picture Association of America, or MPAA, and Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA, in conjunction with every major Internet service provider, or ISP, in the U.S.

The promulgators of the anti-piracy program have frequently been criticized as being slow in revealing information about it, and, true to form, they have made no official announcement about its launch date. However, TorrentFreak said a source close to the scheme confirmed it as being Monday.

In an effort to thwart online users who casually download films, music, and other media content illegally, ISPs under six-strikes policy will use a series of escalating messages to warn customers that they have been tracked. Downloaders of allegedly copyrighted content will be forced to acknowledge they have received warnings by either checking boxes or watching educational videos about piracy, depending on the relevant ISP.

Abercrombie Closing Tons of Stores; Teen & Shirtless Male Model Unemployment to Jump Up


Abercrombie customers might want to get in all their shopping in the next 2 years before it's too late.

According to the CEO, the juniors clothing store is planning to close down at least 180 stores in the United States.


The Huffington Post reports that most stores in the U.S. are underperforming in comparison to its flagship NYC store.

The site reports:

By closing unprofitable locations, Abercrombie hopes to elevate its brand image as well as its profit margins. The 180 stores announced today are only the latest in a string of closures: last year, Abercrombie closed 71 U.S. stores, including 68 during the busy holiday shopping season. The company did not specify where the new closures will occur.

In the meantime, Abercrombie's company is planning to open up new locations in other countries because of the U.S.' shakey economy.

Shia LaBeouf Plagiarizes ‘How to Be a Man’ From Esquire; Author Reacts



To explain why he quit the Broadway play Orphans, problem child Shia LaBeouf decided to tweet his dramatic e-mails with the cast, including Alec Baldwin. The centerpiece of the exchange, which LaBeouf shared along with grandiose (attributed!) quotes from David Mamet and Mark Twain, are the 26-year-old's musings on what it is to be a man: "My dad was a drug dealer. He was a shit human. But he was a man," LaBeouf begins. "He taught me how to be a man. What i know of men Alec is - A man is good at his job. Not his work, not his avocation, not his hobby. Not his career. His job." A man, apparently, also takes what he pleases, because the lines are lifted from Tom Chiarella's "What Is a Man?" published by Esquire in 2009.

Hill Harper Jumps The Fail Ship 'CSI: NY,' For Series Regular Role On USA Network's 'Covert Affairs'



Hill Harper has joined the cast of the USA Network's drama series Covert Affairs for its 4th season, in a series regular role. Currently co-starring on CBS' CSI: NY, that show looks to be ending its run, with its season finale airing tonight, and it hasn't been renewed for another season.

The 16-episode Season 4 of Covert Affairs is currently filming in Toronto, and will feature Hill Harper as "an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America who is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington and seeks Annie and Auggie’s help, but his questionable actions will cause them to doubt his intentions."

Covert Affairs stars Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham, and centers on a young CIA trainee, Annie Walker, who is sent to work at the Domestic Protection Division (DPD), where she serves as a field agent. August "Auggie" Anderson, a blind tech operative, is Annie's guide in her new life. Annie's cover story is that she works in Acquisitions at the Smithsonian Museum.

Trend Alert: K-Pop Meets Country Music (and New Jersey)

2yoon1

On these shores, Korean pop music—more popularly known as K-Pop—is perhaps most identified with the club-ready electronic beats and slickly tuxedoed look of global phenomenon (and newly crowned “King of YouTube”) PSY. So why is K-Pop duo 2YOON heel-toeing in a barnyard in their new video? Why are they wearing overalls? Why is there a saloon in the background? And more important: what’s with their new K-Pop-goes-country sound?

Country music and K-Pop may seem like strange bedfellows right now, but musicians and producers are betting that this unlikely union could yield the next chart-busting hit. Meaning: we could start hearing American-music influences in one of the world’s most popular and dynamic pop genres.Collapse )

Interview with the Kings of UK Light Entertainment

Ant and Dec: just the two of us

They have grown up together on screen, but what are Ant and Dec like away from the cameras? They open up about trying drugs, turning Tory and why they'd never go on a reality TV show




People who become very famous reach a point at which they no longer have to introduce themselves to anyone by name, or say what they do for a living. Most, however, can still remember a time when they were ordinary enough to open a conversation with, "Hello, my name is X and my job is Y." I ask Ant and Dec when those words last passed their lips, and they are both floored.

"In this country?" Ant blinks. "God, I don't know. I honestly don't know. I haven't for so long." Dec thinks hard. "Honestly, I can't think of when it would have been."

Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have been on our screens for so long that, the first time we meet, I feel as if I've climbed inside my television set. Sheer ubiquity has a lot to do with it: child stars of the teen soap Byker Grove back in the late 1980s, they then graduated into a pop act, PJ and Duncan, in the 1990s, before presenting a new ITV Saturday morning show, SM:TV Live, which was supposed to be for kids but turned into one of those surprise crossover hits that grown-ups fall in love with, propelling the pair into prime-time celebrity.

“Ghost Stories”: The ubiquitous anti-feminism of young adult romances

150515838

In a Guardian article last November, Tanya Gold condemned the Twilight franchise and the paranormal progeny it has spawned, calling them sado-masochistic “disempowerment fantasies” masquerading as fairy tales, normalising abuse in the name of risqué romance. But her argument – though apt – hardly goes far enough. To focus criticism of the now-ubiquitous “YA (Young Adult) paranormal” genre on the relationship between its heroines and their “bad boy” lovers is to ignore the more insidious, perhaps more dangerous message the genre sends to teenage girls: that romantic desirability is the proof of, and the reward for, individual worth.

I view the genre with an insider's perspective: I paid my way through university by ghostwriting YA romances for various publishing houses. It was an easy job at first: padding chapter word counts through the judicious use of erotic ekphrasis, mentally calculating how many pennies each adjective added to my bank account: (“His rippling, supple muscular chest, shimmering in the bright sunlight. His smooth, almost preternaturally marble-white skin...”). Yet, after over twenty such books – each written to my employers' chapter-by-chapter outlines – I began to feel increasingly uneasy about the message such tropes send to the genre's young, largely female readership.

Academy Award Winner Adele at the Oscars!







The Oscars... Adele couldn't have picked a grander scene for her first live performance of "Skyfall," the title track from the latest Bond film. About 30 minutes before winning best original song on Sunday, the British dynamo led a large scale run of the track.

With hair down and gold sequined black dress shimmering, Adele did her trademark stand-and-sway and this-big hand gestures as a full chorus and massive backing band (complete with a 15-plus orchestra) brought the layered, building track home.
