Every day, criminals post to the internet illegal copies of artistic works and do it for profit from credit card fraud, the installation of malware on the victim's computer or, at its simplest, selling copies of the work and denying the authors and publishers their revenue. These criminals' websites are indexed by search engines. Worse, the search engines link to the tools needed to create illegal copies and breach Amazon.Com's intellectual property and branding in the process. It needs to stop.

Mr Hiroshi Nakaso, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan spoke at the Japan Society in New York, New York City on the 12 February 2016. He says that his primary goal is to overcome deflation and that this can be done by increasing the both the demand and the supply side of the economy, in particular by encouraging more women into the workforce.

Complaints that the USA's Academy of Motion Picture Arts Awards fails to recognise black actors has resulted in a full review of classifications. We have obtained a transcript of a secret discussion, that did not take place, between the three anonymous people who really run the Oscars. Their names have been changed to protect the ridiculous.

The BBC needs revenue and that revenue has to come from advertising and sponsorship. Indeed, although in the UK its services are commercial free, its external broadcasts have long been advertisement-supported. Today it crossed into dangerous territory.
