Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here. I’m about to shock the trailer-watching world, as well as those of you who believe you are too hip and cool to walk into any film with a love story at its center and no explosions surrounding it. In my mind, there’s a vast difference between a romance film (which include, and have been dominated by, romantic-comedies) and a love story, which are more grown-up takes on relationships and often includes a bit of what comes after the happily-ever-after or provides a twist that keeps a happy ending from ever actually occurring. I’ll confess, I walked into ME BEFORE YOU assuming it would be more of a romance. It’s about a quirky young woman named Louisa (played by an almost recognizable Emilia Clarke, best known as Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones”) who gets a job for the local rich family in her small town taking care of a paralyzed Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), who used to be a man who lived life to the fullest and was quite active, and is not trapped in a wheelchair. Naturally, Louisa’s sparkling personality finally penetrated Will’s hard exterior, and the two begin to fall in love, but there’s a twist to this story (that I won’t reveal here) that makes this something a little less fairy tale (hell, Will even lives in a castle). ME BEFORE YOU was written by the successful British author Jojo Moyes (based on her novel), and the 2012

According to Google’s transparency report, the top 10 infringing sites received 70 million complaints last year.
This news comes after major copyright holders have been struggling to control massive online infringement for nearly two decades. There have been major efforts surrounding a proposed modification to the longstanding ‘Takedown’ policies, powered by a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) loophole.
But, the obvious problem there, is that anything ‘taken down’ almost instantly reappears. Copyright owners complain that despite sending millions of notices, the same content reappears, sometimes only a matter of hours after being taken down. Copyright owners have been battling for ‘Takedown’ to become ‘Take down, Stay down‘ for obvious, repeated infringers. These changes would allow copyright holders to issue a DMCA notice to a site for a specific piece of content and that content would be prevented from reappearing again on the same platform.
But, Google has strongly opposed this movement, deeming the proposal not viable and “not a solution”. Though, there has been talk that there may be alterations to the existing law, and there have been a few Copyright Office roundtables to discuss and consider if the DMCA safe harbor provisions are working as intended, which when considering there were 70 million takedown requests from just 10 sites last year its hard to say that they are working at all.
Below are the top 10 sites with the most complaints last year…
