Why Can't I Own a Canadian?

Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Facts on Farts. Where does fart gas come from? The gas in our intestines comes from several sources: air we swallow, gas seeping into our intestines from our blood, gas produced by chemical reactions in our guts, and gas produced by bacteria living in our guts. What is fart gas made of? The composition of fart gas is highly variable. How to be a good Democrat/Republican. Textbook disclaimer stickers.

This post is for people tracking the bizarre ethical slide of The Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, Inc.

Textbook disclaimer stickers

(CPBR). As you probably know from my earlier posts, CPBR sends out a yearly invitation to plant biotechnology researchers to submit grant proposals. Part of the emailed PDF has instructions on how to make a scientific poster, and a big part of that section was created by copying/pasting text from my page on the topic (but with no quotation marks and no attribution). Because I happen to have an official copyright registration on my poster design page, the PDF is in violation of U.S. copyright law. So, in addition to being able to sue CPBR rather easily, I can can also use the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to send Notifications of Copyright Infringement (NOCIs) to have the CPBR document (PDF and any paper copies) destroyed.
