Continuing the trend of discussing intellectual property law in the Random Pictures thread, this is pretty interesting from a legal perspective:
Car rentals are big business. According to Car Rental Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019, the global car rental market was valued at $36.89 billion in 2013. In the US alone an estimated 2.07m vehicles are available for hire.

Over in Europe, the second largest market next to North America, a storm is brewing. Up in the north of the continent Swedish music rights outfit and car rental company Fleetmanager are locked in dispute over the latter’s business, specifically how the company provides car rental customers access to music.

STIM (Svenska Tonsättares Internationella Musikbyrå) is a collecting society for songwriters, composers and music publishers. It demands license fees whenever its members’ music is broadcast or transmitted, and collects sizable revenues from music streaming service Spotify. STIM also ensures that its members are paid when their music is played in public and this is at the heart of the dispute with Fleetmanager.

Each car rented out by Fleetmanager contains a stereo radio and CD player so that the customer can enjoy broadcasts of all kinds, including music. STIM says that to do so legally Fleetmanager needs to obtain a license but to date has failed to do so.

According to SVD, STIM is arguing that the inside of Fleetmanager’s cars contain members of the public and therefore amount to public places. On this basis the company needs to obtain a public performance license. Fleetmanager disagrees, noting that any music played inside a car is only heard by a limited circle of people.

STIM disagrees. The collection society says that previous cases involving hoteliers have ended with licenses being obtained which enable hotel guests to listen to music while on the premises. Furthermore, other car rental companies in Sweden have already agreed to pay a per-stereo levy so Fleetmanager should also pay, STIM argues.

This is not the first music-related copyright case to hit the car sector this year. In July, the Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies launched a class action lawsuit against Ford and General Motors over the CD-ripping capability of their cars. In November the group followed up with fresh legal action against Chrysler and technology partner Mitsubishi.

Neat safety wiring and casting on an RL-10 rocket engine.

So i did a "CAS" (or whatever the hell they call it) change on my sisters v6 mustang last week. It's the same thing as a distributor except it just has a sensor instead of points and all that ****. Don't ask me why something like this went bad on a car with 100k miles, but it did. This car has had NUMEROUS stupid issues that should never be an issue with a car in it's lifetime.

Anyway i did this and everything seems to be fine. Except i go to check timing and this is what i see.


So in my eyes, this **** is way off. Detonation galore. So i try to adjust it. Spin the CAS like any normal vehicle. This did nothing. So i read up. Apparently i have to pull some type of "pill" or "spout" out of a connector. I guess it takes the computer out of the equation and allows base timing to be set. After doing this, there is no change. I can turn the CAS in either direction and there is no change...

After even more research i read that you can't set timing. Mustang information on the internet is extremely spotty. Finding reputable information is like browsing m.net for the best coilovers to slam a miata..

So i go back to the car and look more. I see no marks on the harmonic balancer. Degree marks that is.

I've never been so confused on setting base timing before in my life. I've built my career around fixing mechanical things, yet this simple problem has me stopped dead in my tracks.

The car drives fine i guess, my sister said it stalled once. I drove it for a bit. It's slower than ****. And that's shocking for me to say because i DD a stock NB miata, this mustang is a good bit slower. Though i've driven GT mustangs and they're slugs too. So i don't know if it's slower than it should be or not. I can't hear it detonate.

Anecdotally, I have experienced a higher incidence of electrical component and switchgear failure on Ford and Chrysler products than other makes I have worked with. Often the plastic components seem to have been chosen specifically for their finite life cycle in the presence of engine compartment heat or UV radiation. I'm not certain if it is due to planned obsolescence, the fact that they can save $12.42 per automobile, or gross incompetence, but I don't like it.

Haven't touched a Chrysler product in a few decades, but this reaffirms my personal suspicion that the minor electrics of the 90s / 00s Grand Marquis / Town Car / Crown Vic, both interior and under-hood, seem to be made from somewhat less-than-durable materials.
