She doesn't seem very smart, but somehow she's managed to be labeled as a lawyer in this video. I suppose it can be argued that becoming a lawyer doesn't necessarily require intelligence, just a really good memory for illogical details.... Okay, come to think about it, maybe intelligence could get in the way of becoming a lawyer. I don't know anymore!

Intelligence is not required if you are mindlessly conforming to the expectations of stupid people. That is true and much of our legal system seems to have been designed by stupid people. Actually I think our legal system has developed haphazardly as the result of randomly inconsistent rulings of judges who interpreted and applied laws in often arbitrary ways in order to accommodate the desires of those they sought to please. Possibly our legal system is in need of an overhaul. As a society we seem to have developed a dysfunctional set of priorities during the last few decades. The law caters to the needs of the very poor and the very rich, leaving reasonable people in the middle with a long list of disadvantages.

George Harrison’s $1.6 Million Mistake
Three notes should not be misconstrued as a basis for a copyright violation. It takes a lot more than just three notes! Judges without commonsense should be removed from the bench!

Twitch streamers panic as clips feature triggers copyright notices
This is problematic. Actually there are quite a few issues discussed in this news clip, but I really have a hard time with a company being able to take down a video because of incidental background music. That strikes me as a gross violation of free speech rights.
