Yeah, stupidest idea this government's had, apart from scrapping their last aircraft carrier 10 years before 2 new ones are completed...

Make sure you have copyright approval from everyone before you post an image, if you don't, it's at you risk!


Re aircraft carriers: We got rid of our fighter aircraft before the new one are ready. So it the meantime have to buy a whole fleet of other aircraft to fill the gap until the "new" ones are ready! Probably at least $10-20 billion not being spent on heath & education!

ack!! This pisses me off to no ends! I've already been ripped off so much by ebay people (check TARDIS iPhone Cover and 90% chance it's my image that's been stolen off my website) and now this just makes me want to cry.

Well I can see this stopping a LOT of people from posting 3D models for free as studios will be able to fewk an artist even further now by using freebie meshes in productions.
Unless of course they've been "registered". As I'm sure it is just a matter of time until this slippery slope extends to your mesh works.

Well then, it's only just a matter of time until it gets to the US.

The more they can screw the little people, the better they like it. And... they will LOVE this.

At least you have some rights in the US.....Canada is at the mercy of its politicians.....

Take our senate.... all unelected
Alberta and BC populations about 3.5 and 4.5 million each...senate seats.... 6 each

Prince Edward Island.....population 300,000...senate seats 10

The government here has on occasion appointed senators when a vote would not pass the senate...just to ram it through
And most Canadians are oblivious to this....

We had the last 4 prime ministers (Trudeau, Mulroney, Chretian, Martin) were all on the board of a law firm called powercorp out of Montreal, and at the time of his election...Martin was the richest elected leader in the world (250 million) all from shipping lines sold to him by powercorp....and they loaned him the money to buy it.
This isn't out of alternative media....these facts are published in the largest magazines and newspapers in Canada

Can you imagine the furor in the US if 4 president in a row were all on the board of Exxon....
And Canadians are totally oblivious and passive to this...

Canada's a great place to live, but the US system ( at least in theory) is accountable to its electorate....
The US system seems to have the underpinnings of the best political system in the world....although I understand the frustration in observing its decay.

Well...

I would probably say that MOST of our "elected" officials are paid for anyway. Just look at the recent vote in the US about allowing background checks for gun buyers. More than 85% of the country thinks that background checks for EVERYONE are a good thing, and yet the politicians voted against even an extremely watered-down version. The only representation we have is that by the gun lobby - the rest of the country... fahgettabout'em.

Anyone watch "Continuum" on the SyFy channel? We DVR'd it and started watching - a world (and governments) pretty much owned by corporate interests with terrorists fighting against them. Interesting premise. Too bad it's becoming reality with (probably soon) ALL of our politicians bought. I know there are a few honorable politicians, but even those most likely have a few things in their closets. Truly sad.

I did not know you could use Google this way. It's awful to see how your artwork is being exploited by so many companies and I hope something good can be done about that--but this feature in Google is fantastic.

Who do you think the politicians are?
People in finance and dare I say it lawyers, make up a large portion of those in political power.
