Just noticing that the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany building is beautiful

The day before 2021, the Russian Government obliged two US companies to issue licenses to their patents for Remdesivir (antiviral medication used to treat ) to the Russian company. This is the 1st time in history when the Government used this opportunity under the art. 1360 of the Russian Civil Code.

On April 1, these US companies filed a claim against the Russian Government. The hearing will be held on May 27.

Recording a podcast in the Academic Council Hall and discussing Facebook as a quasi-jurisdiction with young law students is extremely exciting!

I was surprised that a head of a lilac sprout appears from a seed, because usually a seed stays underground. Sometimes I thought my lilac is just a bit queer... but now I see all lilacs are the same. The lilac deserves someone who knows more about .

Fun fact: I saw the second seed tryed to sprout, but it seems like it looked around and thought: "Oh, no" and burrowed again.

Yesterday I tested Tales form the Loop . Actually that was my first time of being a gamemaster. It was awkward, but I dealt with it.

Well, Tales from the Loop is a quite pretty game to fun with friends. Characters are easy to create, the gameplay is simple to learn, the sci-fi narrative is fascinating, and players have a lot of opportunities to express their characters and take a significant part in an adventure. I like it and will enjoy to try one more one-shot :)

As much as this is obvious for me, as a lawyer of continental law, that law texts are not protected by copyright, as much this strikes me that in The Commonwealth the laws are protected by Crown and Parliamentary copyright and may be freely used under the Open Government License.

I'm an inventor. Particularly, I've invented a new system of my desktop. There are 3 groups of apps:
1. The I use often and regularly are on the main (central) screen.
2. The apps I use sometimes but not often are grouped in folders on the left screen.
3. And the apps I use not regularly but sometimes need them to launch quickly are on the right screen.
You're welcome to use this brilliant method freely. Don't bless me.

Streaming services can't kill movie theaters industry... as it has been already killed in 1940's with spreading of TV.
Just look at this graph. The choice between watching content at home and going to cinemas has been made 75 years ago. And movie studios learned how to make money without cinemas a long time ago.

So cinemas aren't crucial for saving movie industry.

I like how Sims 4 Mod Assistant shows a graph of mods conflicts. It's very similar to graphs of notes connections in Obsidian. Looks neat, pithy and so comfortable to work with!

There is no a lot of content on my website, so I added there a little list with my Mastodon threads with links.

When people tell me robots cannot be copyright holders of works they created because robots are not persons, I just notice that the rivers became legal persons in India. Rivers! That's right, rivers can have rights.
Seriously:

And it's ok.
Law is just an instrument to make the world a better place. We can imagine and establish any legal institutes we want. So if it is useful to grant rivers, robots or even spoons with rights, we can just do it.

Intellectual property law changes worlds and gods!

In 2001-2005 years D&D adventures of the Ravenloft setting was been creating by White Wolf Publishing under the license issued by Wizards of the Coast (the owner of Dungeons & Dragons). However, the license didn't cover the pantheon of gods of the classic D&D world Forgotten Realms...

Idea: a position for the church to protect the blessing cross gesture

I've searched for some to understand is there a such genre of . I've found some channels that are almost like something I look for:

1. Patrikovy Streamy (in ) - a few research streams about of vaccination, harmfulness of microwaves and other topics.

2. StealthIntel (in English) - this anarcho-guy researched some current events. There are just a few old videos.

Maybe you have seen something similar?

There is also a requirement to spread the historical background of glorious cooperation of MIT and Group BULL, and I also like it! It's like exchanging: we give you free soft and you tell our story to others.

I like how Multics License was intended not only to give everyone permission to use the software free, but also to care about brands of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and BULL HN Information Systems Inc. It seems to be a quite underestimated way of trademark protection!
