Pepsi is suing four Indian farmers for growing a proprietary "Lays" potato, seeking $150,000 each in damages (Fri, 26 Apr 2019)
Pepsi has confirmed that it has files lawsuits against four farmers in India who grew a variety of potato that was registered as being for the exclusive production of the company's Lay's potato chips. Activists say that the company sent private investigators after the farmers, and that they posed as buyers for the proprietary lifeform. It's not clear what the cause of action is: all the news stories on places like The Hill and The Daily Beast source their reports to this CNN Business article, which calls the potatoes both "trademarked" and "copyrighted" (it is more common for lawsuits over proprietary crops to be brought on patent grounds). Unnamed food sovereignty activists quoted in the CNN Business article said that India's law protects "farmers' rights to grow and sell trademarked crops." "We believe that the intimidation and legal harassment of farmers is happening because farmers are not fully aware of [their] rights," the letter said. The letter also claims PepsiCo sent private detectives to the accused farmers posing as potential buyers, secretly recording video of them and taking samples of the potatoes. PepsiCo did not comment on those allegations. PepsiCo is suing farmers in India for growing the potatoes it uses in Lays chips [Rishi Iyengar/CNN Business] Read the rest

A mysterious bot makes thousands of Youtube videos from random (?) blog posts (Fri, 26 Apr 2019)
Tom Scocca discovered that a blog post he'd written had been turned into a weird video in which the text of the post was superimposed "meme style" on a set of five rotating static graphics, set to music ("wordless vocals and a sort of jazzy guitar and beat"). The video -- which only used about half of the text of Scocca's post -- had zero views. It belonged to an account called smokaj0000, whose videos are "a solid wall of “No Views” videos, sprinkled here and there with videos that have gotten some tiny number of views" -- it posts hundreds of them every week. Smokaj0000 is mysterious. If you try to post its videos to your own account, you'll get an automated copyright takedown from HEXACORP LTD for the audio track, which is apparently titled "cool-mbia." Hexacorp's website is a word-salad of business grifterspeak: "Deliver high end solutions & services, collaborate customer data & people by adapting latest technologies & tools establish customer friendly process and create effective solutions with focus towards ‘Best Services Interest’ and ‘Maximum Value for Money.'" So what the actual fuck is going on? It's a mystery. As Scocca says, "Whatever smokaj0000 is doing, it is not producing content for human consumption. It is aggressively, chillingly ahuman, a machine signaling to machines for some algorithmic purpose whose human-centered antecedents are long lost. It is not even fake; it simply exists outside any realm where reality might matter." Why Did a YouTube Bot Make an Unwatched Video of Our Blog Post? Read the rest
