Porn star sues Trump over hush deal

first_imgDonald TrumpA porn star sued President Donald Trump on Tuesday to declare a “hush agreement” over their alleged affair invalid because he never signed it, documents say.Los Angeles lawyer Michael Avenatti posted on his Twitter account a copy of what appears to be the suit filed on behalf of the porn star who goes by the name Stormy Daniels. Her real name is Stephanie Clifford.The hush agreement does “not exist, because, among other things, Mr Trump never signed” the document with a Superior Court of California stamp, the suit says.It alleges she had an intimate relationship with Trump from 2006 to 2007, which she sought to reveal after Trump won the Republican Party nomination for president and other women claimed to have had sexual encounters with him.With help from his lawyer Michael Cohen, Trump then sought to “aggressively… silence Ms Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the presidential election,” the document says.Cohen prepared a non-disclosure agreement, a copy of which is attached to the lawsuit and which required a $130,000 payment to be wired from a company known as Essential Consultants LLC to Clifford in return for her silence, according to the documents.Using the pseudonyms Peggy Peterson and David Dennison, Clifford and Trump were to sign the agreement, along with Essential Consultants.Days before the November 2016 presidential election which Trump won, Clifford put her name to the document, as did Cohen for Essential Consultants, it says.“Mr. Trump, however, did not sign the agreement, thus rendering it legally null and void and of no consequence,” the document adds.Cohen told US media last month that he paid Clifford $130,000, prompting her manager to suggest a non-disclosure agreement had been broken.Cohen declined to give details such as why he made the payment, or if Trump was aware of it at the time.“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said, according to the New York Times.Trump declined to comment on the issue. The White House has dodged questions about whether allegations of an affair are true, claiming the matter was dealt with during the campaign.Cohen’s comments came after the watchdog group Common Cause filed a federal complaint in January arguing that the payout may have violated campaign finance rules.last_img read more

HTML5 spec editor slams Google gangs DRM bid

first_img More information: lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/p … ml/2012Feb/0274.htmldvcs.w3.org/hg/html-media/raw- … encrypted-media.html YouTube expands support for HTML5 (PhysOrg.com) — A draft proposal by Google, Microsoft and Netflix to introduce mechanisms for copy protection on web videos has generated strong opposition and a response that the proposal is “unethical.” Reaction has been strong against the powerful trio’s bid to see HTML5 carry digital rights management (DRM) tools. Explore further Citation: HTML5 spec editor slams Google & gang’s DRM bid (2012, February 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-02-html5-spec-editor-slams-google.htmlcenter_img On the opposing side, developers and supporters of open systems argue that the very idea of adding DRM protection to video goes against the spirit of HTML5. “Any technology whose exclusive goal is to stop users from being able to make use of the content they have purchased is, in my opinion, unethical,” said Ian Hickson, HTML specification editor, in an interview with CNET. For Hickson, the Google-Microsoft-Netflix proposal is “just a plug-in platform in disguise.”The plan calls for proprietary plug-ins, called CDMs, or content decryption modules, which is not amenable to the open nature of HTML5, according to opposing arguments.The whole point of HTML5 is to move away from plug-ins; the introduction of such extensions, Hickson argued, would be tantamount to keeping plug-ins around.Specifically, Google, Microsoft and Netflix this week proposed a new web standard, in the form of the Encrypted Media Extensions proposal, and announced it on a W3C mailing list.The draft spells out a framework for bringing forth a system that manages protected content on the web browser. The proposed Encrypted Media Extensions standard would add a new set of API extensions for the HTMLMediaElement. The latter defines specialized properties and JavaScript methods available on HTML audio and video elements. These extensions would introduce DRM capabilities to HTML5-provided video.Whether some form of content protection is even necessary, leave alone ethical, is part of the present debate.Digital rights management permits only authorized video and audio. A solution to unauthorized copying has been seen in browser plug-ins for DRM protection. Hickson said he would rather see copyright law, not proprietary mechanisms, governing the use of video. He said there was no need for technology to protect content; the presence of copyright law was adequate.What next? Since the spec being proposed by the threesome is a draft, tech watchers see no guarantees that what the three propose will become an accepted standard, but at the same time there can be no guarantees that the debate will go south.Pressure to add some kind of DRM to HTML5 video is likely to continue, writes Scott Gilbertson in Webmonkey. “With Hickson very adamantly against it and Mozilla unlikely to support it in its current form, it’s not likely to move beyond the draft stage without some serious revisions.” © 2011 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Hackers Threaten to Leak Ashley Madisons 37 Million Clients

first_img Enroll Now for Free 2 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. This story originally appeared on Reuters July 20, 2015 Hackers claim to have personal details of more than 37 million cheating spouses on dating website Ashley Madison and have threatened to release nude photos and sexual fantasies of the site’s clients unless it is shut down, blog KrebsOnSecurity reported.Ashley Madison’s Canadian parent, Avid Life Media, confirmed the breach on its systems and said it had since secured its site and was working with law enforcement agencies to try to trace those behind the attack.The hackers, who call themselves The Impact Team, leaked snippets of the compromised data online and warned they would release customers’ real names, profiles, nude photos, credit card details and “secret sexual fantasies” unless their demands were met, Krebs said.Avid Life did not disclose what information was stolen.The hackers demanded the closure of another of Avid Life Media’s sites, sugar-daddy site “Established Men”, but did not target the company’s “CougarLife” site, which caters for women members looking for “a young stud”.Ashley Madison, which uses the slogan “Life is short. Have an affair”, has been planning to raise up to $200 million through an initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange.”We apologize for this unprovoked and criminal intrusion into our customers’ information,” Avid Life said, adding that the hackers left behind posts and images on the website detailing their demands. The unauthorized posts have since been removed.The breach comes about two months after dating site Adult FriendFinder was compromised. That site has an estimated 64 million members.The Impact Team, in a screengrab showing on the Krebs blog, say it had taken over Avid Media systems including customer databases, source code, financial records and emails.”Shutting down AM (Ashley Madison) and EM (Established Men) will cost you, but non-compliance will cost you more,” the hackers said.They said users who had paid a fee to Avid Life to have their personal data permanently deleted had been lied to and the company had retained records, including credit card information.(Reporting by Abhiram Nandakumar in Bengaluru; Editing by Rodney Joyce) Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowlast_img read more

How App Publishers game the Microsoft Store

first_imgHow App Publishers game the Microsoft Store by Martin Brinkmann on August 10, 2018 in Windows – 21 commentsThe Microsoft Store is the main place where Windows 10 users can buy, download, and install apps and games for the operating system. While it is possible to sideload apps and games as well, most come from the official Store.I post a weekly series about new apps and games on Betanews and have seen my fair share of application and game releases.Microsoft had to deal with numerous issues that plagued Store users and legitimate publishers in the past.  Issues included a large number of fake application releases that used icons and other imagery of well known applications, issues with ratings, issues with fake premium PC game listings, and technical issues that affected downloads and installations.The issues lead to a series of articles here on the site and others asking Microsoft to fix the Store and the underlying platform. Microsoft did react; it removed fake apps and the situation seems to be under control now; this does not mean that Microsoft Store is free of issues, far from it actually.The “making the app expensive trick”One trick that I encountered numerous times involves making the application very expensive on the Store.The trick has a couple variants that publishers use:Make the app expensive but offer huge discounts (up to free) at the same time for a limited period or indefinitely.Make the app free initially and expensive later on.Make the app expensive, offer a discount, and throw ads and in-app purchases at users.Variant 1 is used to attract more users and more sales. Some developers discount their app so that it is free initially. Doing so attracts users who will install the application; they may leave reviews, and if the app is okay, the app will get a good base of reviews and ratings.The price may be switched eventually after some time. Some apps garnered hundreds or thousands of ratings and reviews when they were offered for free; users who notice the application afterward when it is available for a price may see the reviews and may see the reviews as a positive signal to purchase the app; after all, all these users seem to have bought the app as well.A recent example of variant 3 is the app Background Eraser PhotoLayers – Superimpose. The asking price is $199 but it is free for the next five days.What it does for the price? It provides tools to cut pictures and make the background of pictures transparent. Considering that you get nearly two years of Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC from Adobe for the price, its price is debatable.Users who install the application on their devices, it is free after all right now, may be in for a shock as it is full of advertisement and includes in-app purchase offers to unlock the application’s full functionality. Not really something that you’d expect from a $199 application.Microsoft Store lists quite a few apps that are high-priced for what they do but discounted heavily.Player for DVD’s is available for €5.99 instead of €44.99, Blu-Ray S for  €49.99 instead of €99.99, Ultra DVD Player for €5.99 instead of €29.99, 8-Zip for €0.99 instead of €14.99, and PDF Fill & Sign for €2.99 instead of €29.99. Player for DVD’s is even highlighted on the Apps startpage in Store.Disclaimer: I’m not saying that any of these apps game the system.Don’t get me wrong. Microsoft Store certainly has some legitimate apps that are discounted for a period of time but there is certainly also an increase in published apps that have an asking price that is too high for what they do and use the discount system in one way or another to get more sales or users.How could Microsoft address this?Should Microsoft address this or is it just how the free market plays out? Developers should have the right to price their items anyway they want, and if the discount system allows it, offer discounts as well.Users may have a bad user experience on the other hand. They may buy an overpriced app just because it is discounted, or may run into in-app purchases or ads depending on how the app is set up.One option that Microsoft has is to make it clearer on the shop page if applications contain ads and which in-app purchases are available. While you do see that an app has in-app purchases, you don’t really know for what and how much you’d pay for that.Now You: What’s your take on this?
