Samsung child labor allegations contradict recent audit

See the original posting on The Verge

The 2014 edition of Samsung’s annual Sustainability Report was issued a few days ago and enumerated a long list of improper employment practices among the Korean company’s Chinese suppliers. What it did not find, however, were any instances of child labor, giving the 100 suppliers that were audited in China a clean bill of health at least on that metric.

See the original posting on The Verge

It may not be curtains for internet television broadcasting company Aereo, which shut down last month following a ruling by the US Supreme Court that it violated the Copyright Act. In a new court filing today, the company says it believes it can operate once again, and within the confines of the Supreme Court decision by existing legally as a cable system instead of an equipment provider. Under current law, that would protect any transmissions it’s picking up from being prohibited, the company wrote in a joint letter to US District Judge Alison Nathan.

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 5.21.29 PM In the old days of Twitter — at least ‘old’ by Silicon Valley 2.0 standards, which is anything over five years — you could count on a couple of things.
