$50,000 and shut up and you get to keep your house.

Shortly after the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) got involved in the Montagues’ defence, the CRIA office sent them a ludicrous offer to settle the civil forfeiture action out-of-court. It stipulated that the CRIA office would permit the Montagues keep their home if they paid $50,000 to the Ontario government and agreed never to talk about it publicly.

Bruce and Donna Montague's 10-year fight to save their home from the Government of Ontario is finally over. They have accepted a settlement and the Honourable Mr. Justice Shaw of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice completely dismissed the civil forfeiture action against their home.

You wouldn't steal a chair? (Would you consider this theft?)
3D printing is picking up speed and with it so are the laws associated with copyright. This time the EU (European Union) has expanded copyright to include things like furniture and not only that but they have extended it by a century.

Previously a piece of furniture that was older than 25 years old would be considered public domain but with this new rule change the exclusive monopoly law as it is called extends that to 100 years. So the designs of furniture will be moved from being under design patents to being under copyright now because people have the ability to 3D print a piece of furniture.

This feels like an odd and hostile move toward a maker-oriented future. Now some people will say that these types of rules incentives the design process by making sure they have a monopoly on exploiting it commercially. This move is guaranteed to end in the prosecution of people who manufacture their own furniture.

So do you think the future of furniture and other things like this will be open source plans for 3D printing? How do you see this new law having an impact on the production of consumer items? Do you see an issue with someone reproducing a chair that was once worth a lot of money for practically nothing? We certainly live in interesting times and it'll be fascinating to see how the current environment of patents and copyright turn out.

The UK has just changed its copyright-and-patent monopoly law to extend copyright to furniture and to extend the term of that copyright on furniture with about a century. This follows a decision in the European Union, where member states are … Continue reading

Rotating shed! 
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) worked for the last 20 years of his life in a remarkably sophisticated writer's hut on his property in St. Albans, Hertfordshire. Besides having electricity, a telephone, and a buzzer system, the hut's most notable feature was that it was built on a turntable, which enabled Shaw to push it to follow the sun.

Hmmm:

"...But there’s a final explanation, the darkest of all. It has been put forward, most recently, in a monumental new book, “The Rise and Fall of American Growth,” by Robert Gordon, an economist at Northwestern. Gordon’s theory, parts of which I recall him explaining to me over a lunch, in Chicago, some fifteen years ago, is that technological advancement just ain’t what it used to be.

To Gordon’s mind, things like the Internet and the smartphone, while they are undoubtedly marvellous products of human ingenuity, don’t match up to previous technological innovations, such as indoor plumbing, the internal-combustion engine, electrification, and commercial jetliners. In speeches, Gordon sometimes holds up pictures of a flushing toilet and an iPhone and asks audience members which one they would rather give up. “Look at what an ideal kitchen looked like in 1955,” he told the Wall Street Journal a few years ago. “It’s not that different than today. It’s nothing like moving from clotheslines to clothes dryers.”

If Gordon is right, sagging productivity figures simply reflect the fact that scientific progress doesn’t have as much impact on the economy as it once did. Rather than waiting for productivity growth and wages to rebound of their own accord, Gordon supports policies designed to expand the size and quality of the labor force, such as raising the retirement age, letting more immigrants into the country, and expanding access to higher education..."
Whatever is driving the slowdown in productivity growth in the U.S. appears to be affecting the advanced world as a whole. What is it?
