Digital Rev
GoPro Angry at DigitalRev Review
Manufacturer of action cameras, GoPro were up in arms yesterday over a review of their equipment on well known photography site DigitalRev. However, it wasn't the outcome of the review that prompted them to bring in the lawyers and send a DMCA takedown demand, but the site's use of registered trademarks. GoPro's lawyers demanded that DigitalRev removed the trademarks 'GoPro' and 'Hero' from their site. In other words, the review had to go because it used the name of the product... The DMCA takedown demand refers to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which covers copyright infringements, as oppose to trademark infringements which this case (in GoPro's own words) was clearly about. However DigitalRev felt they had to comply with the demand as the demand went through DigitalRev's hosting company, Softlayer.

Love Padlocks on the Pont Des Arts
Love Padlocks on the Pont des Arts, Paris
A recent trip to Paris gave me a chance to check up on the ongoing saga of the love padlocks on the Pont des Arts. Several years ago, couples took to attaching a padlock to the wire frame of the bridge, and tossing the key into the River Seine, all as a symbol of their undying love. The craze has spread with love padlocks appearing in cities all around the world.

In 2010, after the Parisian authorities had expressed concerns and threatened to remove the locks, a large number of them disappeared virtually overnight though the authorities denied that it was at their hands.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor in Brighton

  It wasn't quite murder on the dancefloor, but it did get pretty hot in there for a bit as Sophie Ellis-Bextor did her thing at Concorde 2 in Brighton. No harm done though, and 2010 comes to a very satisfactory end. Looking forward to 2011 and...
