I am not up on internet Drama. I don't give a damn about Frienditto. I don't think it's a big deal and I really wish people on livejournal would quit running to WORLD SHATTERING CONSPIRACY land every time some new thing comes up.
This time it's a service that will archive your friend's Friends only posts. You can then disseminate those posts to whoever you want. Basically, it's a screenshot for people who don't know how to use photoshop.

I didn't know anything about it. subbes made this post to help combat the hysteric stupidity and now I know all about Frienditto. And I have nothing to say about it other than "don't let assholes you don't trust read your FO posts."

Not only has this APOCALYPSE OF HORRIBLENESS proved that none of these people trust the people reading their friends list to not spread the info, it also means that Frienditto is violating the copyright of everyone who's posts are archived there. Because someone was very very sure of this, I'm going to go look it up. I know US copyright law is a mess. I know that I personally think copyright law in general is... well... pointless. I know that it gives people the power to make claims about artistic creations that are just *laughable*. I know that in regards to music it means that the people all ready rich enough to buy the rights to a song can do whatever they want to it, destroying it in the process (p. diddy, j-z, etc) and those who use public domain sounds will repeatedly be sued by massive corporations (coca cola) and wildly successful half rate pop bands (U2)

I dragged my ass out of bed this morning to do some dishes and get caught up on some work. Now becuase of some comments in that post that dear LORD I hope aren't actually true, I'm looking up copyright law info. Guh.
