U352 Sunk 80 Years Ago Today!

On May 9, 1942, the German submarine U352 was sunk by depth charges from the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Icarus, south of Morehead City, North Carolina. The Icarus crew machine gunned the German submarine when it surfaced, preventing the German submariners from manning the deck guns. Icarus then departed and returned 45 minutes later to pick up survivors. Fifteen of the crew were lost, but 33 survived and spent the remainder of the war as prisoners in the U.S. They were the first German prisoners on U.S. soil.

 Adobe Launches Another Tone Deaf Contest!


After a disastrous rollout of Adobe's most recent Creative Challenge which was a thinly veiled rights grab of creatives' work. Adobe launches another bizarre contest. In an effort to get teachers to use Adobe's Creative Cloud Express teachers can submit "their work for a chance to win a class set of Adobe pencil cases and stickers!" 

OMG! Maybe Adobe could throw in a box of rubber bands and paper clips too! Seriously?! 

And by the way, what becomes of these submitted logos? Is there a section of the contest that also teaches students about IP rights - something every student in the 21st century needs to learn?

In 2021 Adobe's net profits stood at 4.8 billion U.S. dollars! Adobe, how about meaningful prizes; like scholarships, laptops for students, school supplies, or even school lunch funding?

Come on Adobe you can do better!

Blackbeard Just Broke Copyright Law, and Now States Are the Pirates

Copyright law has a huge blind spot — a blind spot that only came to light because of Blackbeard. There is no honor among thieves pirates states, and about a year after North Carolina promised not to infringe Allen’s copyrights, the state passed “Blackbeard’s Law,” which stated that “all photographs, video recordings, or other documentary materials of a derelict vessel … shall be a public record,” and that Allen’s agreement with the state was “void and unenforceable.” READ MORE
