penalty of perjury

I live in the United States and am, as of Wednesday, legally nonbinary/x without being intersex. My court order also says that my title is legally Mx.

I provided proof of “appropriate clinical treatment for gender dysphoria…. under penalty of perjury” in the form of a written and signed letter on clinic letterhead from my doctor, as well as an extra unnecessary letter from my therapist.

If you’re nonbinary, you can do this too. I believe in you!

Sally Yates just handed Democrats new ammo for going after Trump
When former acting Attorney General Sally Yates was sworn in before the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism and Crime on Monday afternoon, nearly everyone sitting near me in the audience sat up to snap a picture. Yates’s subsequent testimony confirmed, under penalty of perjury, that she had warned the Trump White House that then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was lying about his contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in late December. Yates told the White House this on January 26 and again on January 27. Read more
Frances Bean & Courtney Love Discuss Kurt Cobain Death Photos

Declaration of Frances Bean Cobain

“I, Frances Bean Cobain, declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Washington as follows:

1. I am Kurt Cobain’s daughter. I am over 18 years of age and I am competent to testify. I have personal knowledge of the matters below and could and would testify to them.

2. I understand that Richard Lee has filed a lawsuit against the City of Seattle and the Seattle Police Department to try and force them to release never-before-released graphic photographs law enforcement personnel took at the scene of my father’s death, so that Mr. Lee can publicize them.

3. I once saw mock photos depicting my father’s body. That experience irreparably scarred me. I cried for days afterward. Those horrible images still haunt me. I cannot imagine how terrible it would be knowing that the photographs that Mr. Lee seeks were public, and that I or any of my loved ones, including my father’s mother and sisters, might inadvertently see them. Release and publication of the photographs would shock me and exacerbate the post traumatic stress that I have suffered since childhood.

4. Releasing the photographs would physically endanger me and my mother. My mother and I both receive a constant stream of death threats from very disturbed individuals who are obsessed with my father. Once, a stalker broke into my home while I was on vacation, and laid in wait for three days. This person’s twisted explanation was that he was meant to be with me because my father’s soul had entered my body.

5. Releasing these photographs into the public domain would encourage more disturbed stalkers and fanatical threats. It would make me feel even more unsafe in public and make me more fearful for myself and my family’s safety. I would have to delete all of my social media to prevent receiving the photographs.

6. I was less than two years old when my father died. I have worked hard to know him from stories from friends and family, photographs, and from his art, as the living person who was my parent. I do not want that image to be stained by the knowledge that these horrible photographs are public and that I might be exposed to them. I have had to cope with many personal issues because of my father’s death. Coping even with the possibility that those photographs could be made public is very difficult.

7. I am not the only person who would be irreparably scarred by public disclosure of the photographs. Although disclosure and publication of the pictures would harm all of the family and friends who loved my father, his parents (my grandmother and grandfather) and his sisters and brothers (by aunts and uncle), would be especially vulnerable to emotional pain and trauma from knowledge that the pictures were public.

8. The tragedy of my father’s death is a personal and private matter for me, his other family members, and his friends. Further sensationalizing it through the release of these pictures would cause us indescribable pain.

Signed at Los Angeles, California on July 20, 2015.”

If you've purchases Starkist Tuna

BETWEEN Feburary 19, 2009 and October 31, 2014, you might be eligible for some money back because of a class act settlement that Starkist didn’t package their 5 oz tuna to full weight. But PLEASE PLEASE keep in mind that if you file a claim you are pledging on penalty of perjury so take it seriously and don’t abuse the system!! You can choose either a $25 cash pay-out or $50 worth of tuna, which for my fellow broke-eaters is A LOT of food. But again, take it seriously and do not abuse it. The website with all the info is TunaLawsuit.com

nicocoer  asked:

Have you heard about the tumblr using bots to perma ban people who uploaded music, and because it's bots even stuff under fair use is likely to be flagged for perma bans?

fyeahcopyright has heard reports about this and seen the FAQ about what may be going on, the script so people can find what they need to delete if they’re concerned about this, and a how-someone-got-her-account-restored FAQ but we are still looking into (a) whether this is still happening, (b) whether this was a glitch that staff is working to fix, and © whether vids and other transformative works that are clearly Fair Use that people have uploaded here on tumblr could also be caught up in all this. 

We’ll have a broader post later today once we’ve learned answers to these questions. 

We also wanted to address the issue of DMCA takedown notices in general. The DMCA, or Digital Millennium Copyright Act, has been part of US law for almost 20 years, and means that a service provider like tumblr is not responsible for copyright infringement if they remove infringing works - and yes, uploading a song that you don’t hold a license to or the copyright in can be infringing but if it’s a Fair Use then under US law it isn’t infringing because Fair Use is a lawful use of a copyrighted work
