Right at the back end of the book it says basically "it's a sin to misrepresent what the Bible says and to pull parts out of context"

"They literally do reactions and commentary on the clips" you cant win a fair use case with only 1 of the 4 factors of fair use. for something to be fair use it has to balance all 4 factors of it. reaction and commentary is ticking a single box and as i said before, it was ruled in a court cases involving jukin in jukins favor on clips for youtubers being not fair use on a very large amount from =3. Only clips with more than a full minute of commentary were considered fair use. Saying that its unlikely they would win is just false. hell just look up any lawyers talking about mxr's situation before they settled. they all say mxr's stuff is very likely not fair use because it isnt transformative often comparing it to someone posting a video of themselves watching a movie in its entirety and having 3 seconds of themselves saying "yea it was an ok movie" at the end and calling it a fair use commentary.

On the payout bit, they could very well be awarded the 6000 for it. Depending on the judge it could go all the way up to the hundreds of thousands total awarded. It's not a matter of if they would get that, it's that the fees and lawyer bills would push profits too far lower than settling out of court

In specifically mxr's case the stuff wouldn't probably be considered transformative. It's actually a hard mark to hit and there has to be quite a bit of transformation to the work. Another tenant of fair use is how much of the original work is used. In the case of reaction channels they typically show the whole clip which really hurts a fair use argument.
In the cases with =3, he had some clips considered transformative enough and some clips were not however of those that were considered transformative the smallest amount of commentary given was over a full minute.
Mxr very rarely gave that much commentary to any clip at all.

Jukin settled because it was more profitable than going to court. They don't want to actually go to court. If you look at the two times they did go to court they got less than they would have gotten out of court by a hellavalot. They didn't settle because of public opinion they settled because mxr pushed back and they ran away with what money they could get ahold of

Lel Jukin as a company doesn't care about public opinion. The potential for profit from upcharging YouTubers a under duress is hella more than they would make just selling clip licenses legitimately. Their profit isn't determined by the court of public opinion at all

If the building is on fire and you have to get down to the ground floor having clothes on decreases your chance of getting a serious burn if something on fire or very hot brushes against your body in a place that would be covered had you not been naked.
Would serve a similar purpose in other emergency situations in that it would make probably the least life threatening part of it less dangerous.

im just gonna copy paste myself from above
"Generally universal health care only gives shitty doctors to the masses because the private industry pays all the good ones far better than be state can hope to do, just look at the U.K, the country that shares the closest cultural similarities to the US in Europe, the NHS is fucking awful and actively avoided at any possible chance with waiting lists long enough that the person supposedly being saved by universal health care dies waiting on their turn. It's just like the America veteran's association health care, an active example of what universal health care would look like in America just with less spread thin resources than universal health care would have, people die because the service is so shit and slow."

That's why they mark up the price a few days before to a degree worse than the result the comic shows, usually it's such that the "marked down" price is more expensive than what it is normally

This depiction of ancalagon is very hyperbolic. His exact size is never given, the only real indicator of his size is that, when felled by earendil, his impact with the ground sundered the towers of thangorodrim which are literal mountains, however this feat was also accomplished by durin's bane, the Balrog slain by Gandalf atop the mountain housing moria and a Balrog was described as being larger than a man but not huge.
The great eagle accompanying earendil had a wing span similar to Smaug so ancalagon would only be 1.5 to 2 times his size and, ancalagon being clearly labeled the largest and greatest of the dragons, it's easy to see that Smaug was actually huge af in scale of Tolkien dragons.
