Larf: Company Claims Violated Terms of Its Licensing Agreement; Plans to Pursue Legal Action

Now this story is not a huge one. I tried to think of a way to not mislead people in the headline and sort of try to say "This is more of a joke than a major issue." "Larf" was all I could come up with.

A company permits the free use of its software, I think for data tables, so long as the user retains the copyright notification that the software belongs to the company.

Well, of course, The Gang Who Couldn't Code Straight did not include that copyright notification.

Obviously this will be quickly resolved, as Obama can't take yet another embarrassment.

And obviously he will use our money to make his problem go away in a speedy manner. I imagine he will use some of our money to pay off the company so that it never speaks of this again, that is, he will pay them off to secure a No Disparagement Clause or NDA. Which is contrary to the public interest, and also contrary to the fiscal interest.

But it's in Obama's own personal political interests, and that's all that matters, right?

Oh, apparently the crack Obama team left the internal comments in the code, which allowed this company to quickly determine it was in fact its code. Of course, they did delete the part of about requiring their copyright notice to be displayed.

That part they remembered to delete.

BTW, I added a good update to the Tea Party Science post, below, which probably no one has seen, as it was added very late.



Good God. It never ends. And the public will not know, because the media will not tell them.

Oh, yes, Politico notes this. And yes, we've seen, for example, a New York Times reporter call Obama's WH the "most paranoid, thin-skinned, control-freak Administration I've ever covered."

But there are a lot of dots here that could be usefully connected by a few very straight lines. This is what the media claims it does best -- put things into context. A very easy (and accurate) narrative could be written here about the Administration's paranoia and secrecy not only harming the American interest but its own interest as well.

Instead, they will let these dots float away, each alone, each isolated, unconnected to any broader, more useful picture.
