I tell you what.
Maybe we can ask the national newspapers to stop reporting on certain crimes as by addressing them is classed as "unhealthy". Where as attempting to even discuss the ever increasing reports of such from reports in the national press is obviously the posters fault and no reflection of the news and society.

Are the subjects you have mentioned something you want censored or attempt to cover up?
If so why, what is you interest in having such stories hidden?

You know who often wants such stories hidden, sex predators and offenders.

Based on your own statements, just the fact that something is broadcast is enough to justify it.
Regardless of if it becomes a moving picture.

This thread is officially defunct.

You have gone too far down the chain matey ... the receiver of the data stream is actually the device, on a computer it is the network card, it then forwards the stream to the app for decoding. So, the device receives the packaged moving pictures with or without sound!

Not at all under the same hypothesis, simply being alive would qualify for your line of deduction.

And that is irrelevant to the law. It is not the transmission format that matters.; it is if you have the necessary equipment to reassemble such a transmission that matters. So for a monitor you need a digital decoder (tuner) and for a computer one would expect that you need similar capabilities, i.e. a browser, but since there is not yet a precedent it is impossible to say.

I dont think even windows comes installed with a stock browser any more.
I know OSX doesnt come with flash installed or Java? any more.

Again, a monitor requires a decoder to to view TV.
And a computer needs a software decoder which is more often than not no longer supplied during purchase.

Simply making a computer or mobile device as useful as owning a monitor without a decoder.

Thus making such claims that a computer is covered by the law as very dubious.

Again, it cant be received as to receive it as a TV program often requires 3rd party apps.
So its the app which is the receiver or tuner.
And the hardware has nothing to do with it.

Yes, but it doesn't say anything about actually watching a moving picture, it says capable of receiving a television program, just because your screen may be broken doesn't mean the device cannot receive the package that contains moving pictures with or without sound. biggrin.gif

Again, I cant receive it without a separate 3rd party app.
The hardware has nothing to do with it, as it cant show said moving picture without it.

Here is where you get it completely wrong. The transmission data format is irrelevant to the law. All transmissions, whether it is over the air or the internet, are today coded into data streams. It is the contents that defines it as a TV-program, not the transmission data format.

But as it stands, the contents are not a tv program until they are reassembled.

The largest market of portable devices such as tablets in Sweden is Apples iPads and iPhones.
Both require 3rd party apps to be able to see such content and flash is not an extension available for such.

Flash in itself, again is a 3rd party extension which is less often installed on computers.
And is an additional "add on".

The same way that a computer monitor is not a TV.
Both can display moving images, but a monitor can only work with additional factors to display said picture (such as a tuner).

No many electronically devices can not view content from channels such as SVT without proprietary software add ons such as apps.

Meaning that computers themselves are not portals for TV.

I am going to break it down into simple terms for some of you in terms of internet based media.
(Irrespective of any moral or political view)

Over the airwaves (now basically redundant)
In the old days, it would simplmy mean the state channels would create a program, broadcast it over state owned airwaves. It would reach what we then referred to as a TV which was a screen with a signal decoder and built in software which would then decode said signal and reassemble it into a tv program.

Internet Streaming and similar transfer of information .
State funded channel produces what they wish to describe as a "TV Program".
But to broadcast it, they no longer can use state owned airspace.
So it has to be encoded into a proprietary format that also has heavily patented codecs.
At this point it is no longer a TV program but simply raw data (And cannot be classed as anything else).

Now in the days of old it would reach a TV with a built in tuner.
But computers dont have this as what converts the raw data and decodes it using 3rd party licensing for codecs etc.

So in this state or raw data, it is not a program.
The change comes when proprietary software installed on to any device that allows the data to be re-assembled into its original intended format (tv program).

For instance on an iPad or iPhone I believe it requires a 3rd party app to be installed onto said device. An app that is specifically licensed from the state channels themselves.
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY DOESNT COME PRE LOADED ON SUCH DEVICES.

Where as on a stationary PC it again needs 3rd party software (usually relating to adobe) but again, many computers dont come with such software installed.

So really what defines any attempt to claim as being hardware or technology neutral is a farce.
As its the actual proprietary decoders that is the question.
As its this piece of software that is the receiver or tuner (nothing else).

And since they are often distributed by the state channels themselves, one has to ask why they are not responsible for their own distribution of key software without license?

As it stands now, local companies representing the government seem to be over stepping their claims of how the law allows such collection of fee's. As technically its ways to enforce it would look to be breaching the very law it claims to be representing.

But further more due to the very poor writing of the law, it too could be heavily construed of breaking EU law. As by the changes looking to be enforced by its interpretation, it in its very own existence looks to break a fundamental human right.

Again, a description of what a TV program consists of is one thing.
But the definitions of broadcasts and technology surrounding it are not only defined by patents and licensing.
But also defined in cases relating to article 10 by the EU courts.

Technology has changed, and while terminology by producers with their own interest in self survival have attempted to brand it. The fact remains they are very different.

Take for instance skype.
Its often referred to as voice IP.
Where in the past private delivery systems (the phone line) required that anyone who wanted a phone had to pay a line rental.

But since the advent of IP based technology the right to charge for exclusive monopolies has become redundant as alternative technology has prevailed.

Its still often referred to or associated with the term "Telephone" , but thats pretty much where it ends.

Its the same for this claim of IPTV (you may wish to read that in regards to Swedish use of technology)
Specific patents and laws surrounding it make it different from the technology known as "TV" in the past.
And aiming to charge a fee for a service that doesnt even technically exist any more clearly highlights the abuse of both the government in this area and the judicial system for not stepping in.

Luckily article 10 has had numerous cases go through the European courts.
And made specific defining judgements on such.
Most recently in regards to the distribution of media and news without hindrance.
(the right to information)

So while supporters of these latest collection fee's may feel they are covered from changes in technology.
Its only a matter of time before the laws have to be seriously amended as they contradict and breach the obligations they have to Europe.

Now I am not saying that Sweden cant impose a tax instead.
But as it stands, the right to tax for ownership of a computer, tablet or even smart phone is benign.

The funny thing in the future could be adverts placed on the radio.

OK there's a few skeletons in the cupboard and the thought of living there doesn't send peoples hearts racing with excitement, but until the natives and swedophiles come out of their shells and discuss controversial issues in a mature, open manner, instead of spitting their dummies every time they hear something they don't like, I see little hope of things improving.

Who would have thought such fear of open information would be so resented.
And claims that it would expose Sweden in such a fearful manner.

Dear,
you bumped 3 threads with just the word "bump".
These 3 bumps were deleted and you were notified.

You then bumped the same 3 threads with the same generic copy and paste.
1 was left up, 1 was deleted and the third was edited (to show you it had been removed).

The intention of your bumps were not related to one story or to discuss the thread in point.
But simply used as a way to draw attention to a single individual in a directed manner to single out.

So that hopefully you can either calm down and stop spamming every thread with accusations etc, I will link to some parts of the T&C for you.

http://www.thelocal.se/termsofuse.php

Do yourself a favour (as well as the others on here) and use your fingers for something else this evening. As your obviously very uptight.

Basically that's what I was suggesting, but due to the sensitive nature of the subject for some I was trying to ensure I walked on egg shell to ensure I dint offend.

Usually 2 years is the time frame allocated as permanent residency in terms of child custody battles or issues relating to custody of children with parents living in different countries.

My only worry would be that even though you have full custody, that this could be a stumbling block in regards to MV. I know of a similar issue regarding a family and its not been an easy ride.

But you know, like many threads on here ... its luck of the draw.
As so many cases are dealt differently depending on the person reviewing your case.

You may also need a new consent form from the biological father in terms of living abroad with said child.

Depends on location and sales point.
I dont think all English dagis' are allowed to operate by law any more in Sweden unless they have a specific license (very rare). So what you end up with is a Swedish speaking dagis that sometimes offers other languages (such as English). But Swedish being the main language as to conform to local language laws.

Normally such places are described as "Engleska" or "International".
They are not allowed to call them British or even English (I think) as that requires a specific license which as far as I know only 1? place in the whole of sweden has.

Generally speaking what usually happens is Swedish speaking dagis's open up but offer a second language (usually undefined) and then its dressed up with a business name to give it a false sense of legitimacy.

The definition of rape?
This is about the Assange case.
A case that hasn't led to any trial, in which he has been given political asylum backed by something like 27 nations.

There has been no trial.
And no change in the case since you bumped it.

But you bumping a thread (actually numerous ones) with the same spam message that has had to be deleted 5 times now puts you in a category of a person looking to cause damage rather than discussion.

Furthermore, if there had been any question of rape and its definitions in any context.
The thread in question should have had a link to this thread as referral.

But the simple fact is, I have posted 3 headlines today from the national newspapers all relating to sex crimes. And all dated today. Now I didnt post them as they were the same subject, they were listed because they were the top most concerning stories in todays papers.

If you dont like people discussing such headlines in English, then stay away.
As by constantly looking to derail threads in an attempt to seek revenge for the mere fact they were even posted is naive.

You are not going to stop the news from being redistributed in other languages if people so choose. And you are not going to be allowed to continue with your imaginary claims and personal grudges in an attempt to either get me out or anyone else for that matter.

You dont like the OP fine.
Had you behaved like this to any other poster on the board, you would have had action taken against you.
