Pursuit of James Bond Film Rights Kicks Into High Gear

Pursuit of James Bond Film Rights Kicks Into High Gear

The distribution rights to one of the movie industry’s highest-profile franchises are about to be up for grabs, leaving Hollywood shaken and stirred. After “Spectre”—which opened last week overseas and will make its U.S. debut this week —the current deal for Sony Pictures Entertainment to release James Bond movies will expire. Several studios are planning to pursue those rights, according to people familiar with the matter, even though there is surprisingly little profit in releasing Bond films. For the past decade, Sony has distributed the 007 films under a deal with co-owners Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Danjaq LLC, a British company run by the family that has produced 24 of the 26 films in the series since the 1962 original, “Dr. No.” MGM makes movies, but no longer distributes them to theaters, so it needs a major studio partner. All four Bond films released and marketed by Sony have performed well, with 2012’s “Skyfall” grossing $1.1 billion world-wide, the highest ever for the series. But not much of the profit has stayed with the studio, thanks to what Sony’s former movie chief described in an email leaked last year by hackers as “a one-sided deal with MGM.” Sony made just $57 million on “Skyfall,” […]

The New Battleground for Same-Sex Couples Is Equal Rights for Their Kids

When the Supreme Court invalidated same-sex marriage bans in June, the Justices acknowledged they had the kids in mind.

In the majority opinion, Justice Kennedy cited the infringement of the interests of children being raised by same-sex couples as one reason for the Court’s ruling.

Who are these kids? An estimated 220,000 children under the age of 18 are being raised in same-sex families in the United States. Half are nonwhite.

Protecting kids’ rights

My research, scholarship and advocacy efforts have focused on children, particularly black children, for the past 10 years. In an amicus brief filed in Obergefell — the Supreme Court case that ended same-sex marriage bans — my coauthors and I highlighted the legal and economic deprivations children in these families suffer when their parents can’t marry.

Responsiblities of the gaming industry in protecting children’s rights

f3cec193-7ea2-4d98-b9b4-0aa155fcb1de-2060x1236Imagine you’re five years old. You’re playing your favourite mobile game – let’s call it Super Duper Zookeeper – when a message pops up inviting you to buy a bundle of ‘gems’ or ‘fruit’ (at a cost of up to £70 per transaction), and spend them ‘Now!!!’ to ‘Unlock The Baby Panda!!!’ You don’t really understand that the gems or fruit cost real money, so you buy several bundles … then several bundles more … and before you know it you’ve got a zoo full of baby pandas on your hands, and a very angry parent.

Rights vs risk for kids online

TodlerTechWhen considering legislation to protect children online, it is important to note that not all online risk results in harm and not all opportunity results in benefit.

This is according to Dr Ellen Helsper, associate professor in media and communications at the London School of Economics. She was speaking at the University of the Witwatersrand’s ‘Wits Internet Week’ in Johannesburg yesterday.

Helsper discussed the outcomes of the EU Kids Onlineresearch project, which has been researching the Internet’s effect on children since 2006. The project particularly looks at children’s online opportunities, risks and safety.

Same Sex Couples In Victoria Closer To Adoption Rights, Catch Up To NSW, WA, ACT

It’s been far too long of a time coming, but Victoria is currently moving a step closer to other Australian states’ same sex adoption rights, with the state government announcing a review of family laws today.

According to The Age, a review will be conducted over the current adoption laws in Victoria, with a proposed change to same-sex couples’ rights potentially being made equal with male-female couples by the middle of the year. The proposed change would mean same-sex couples could adopt children together; at present, a partner in a same-sex relationship cannot officially become a ‘parent’ of their partner’s child, only a legal guardian.

As Jamaica Prepares to Begin Using Drones to Fight Crime, Concerns Emerge Over Human Rights

 Powered by Max Banner Ads As Jamaica gets ready to use drone technology in its crime fighting, the United States has announced new guidelines governing the use of the technology that could influence Jamaica’s approach. Last week, the Jamaica Constabulary Force outlined its timetable for the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles in crime hotspots such as St. James. However, already local human rights advocates have noted that there is need for regulations to ensure that the constitutional rights of Jamaicans are not breached. Yesterday, US President Barack Obama called for more stringent rules on privacy and drone use. The White House issued a presidential memorandum stating that drones should not be used to illegally gather or share private data. It said laws regulating drone use should be evaluated every three years, to ensure that protections and policies keep pace with developments. Civilian drone use has recently surged in popularity, presenting new regulatory challenges. Drones are usually deployed for military and special operation applications, but are also used in a small but growing number of civil applications, such as policing and firefighting. source: http://atlantablackstar.com/2015/02/17/jamaica-prepares-begin-using-drones-fight-crime-concerns-emerge-human-rights/

College Students Are Infants and Deserve Zero Free Speech or Sex Rights, Says Slate Wow

Eric Posner—a University of Chicago Law School professor and son of famed federal judge Richard Posner—makes the case in Slate that college students don’t really deserve free speech or due process rights. He also chides libertarians outraged by campus censorship for thinking that 18-year-olds—infants, in his view—are intellectually capable of thriving in a non-coercive environment. Read More….
