    Can they do that? Would AP have a case against them in court?

    I don't know if he had the original idea but it looks like he published the first bitcoin software

    I don't know if you're talking about something else but I don't think the original account posting that he's not Dorian nakamoto is credible. If I were Dorian and also sakashi nakamoto and I wanted my privacy I would immediately deny it through the account

    But you know it could be a misguided article. She didn't really have solid evidence but a lot of circumstantial things

    Okay I get that Werther's Original is a classic candy with a pretty good flavor to it. But what I don't get is all the Werther's Clubs that are sprouting up around St. Louis (and I assume in other cities too). Apparently you gather once a week and discuss how Werther's has improved your quality of life and suchlike.

    I don't know lasbar, you must have some strange ways about you to think that Werther's Original Club is kinky. It's just discussing the role of a candy in the lives of a people.

    I believe it's been fought in the past, the problem is that facts are not copyrightable. So if Putin nukes Kiev it doesn't really matter who reports it first.

    Chicks are never really into your model trains; they're always really after something else.
    One of those lessons I learned way to late in life . . .

    Gentlemen, the soon to be disbarred Saul Goodman wannabe of Pennsylvania.



    Protip Danny, Breaking Bad was not a how-to for the legal profession.
