Why would the team-responsible-for-AdBlock "acquire" GPL-licensed abandonware "uBlock"? https://www.ublock.org/announcement/ IMO, there is no sensible reason to "acquire" a long abandoned fork of GPL-licensed uBlock Origin, except for lust over the name recognition of "uBlock" pic.twitter.com/wRiqV0mhTf

File a DMCA complaint with Github. Itʼs very easy and shitbirds stealing your copyrighted code without attribution will have to either follow the license or commit perjury: [11]https://help.github.com/articles/github-terms-of-service/#f-copyright-infringement-and-dmca-policy …

I hate this whole situation so much... I hope there’s somebody out there with enough power to stop uBlock-LLC. We all know you have the way superior product. So many people, me included, are super grateful for the service you’ve been providing for so many years.

And if court is the only way to win this - you should be able to collect enough money to do so.

You probably don’t like this, but I think rebranding to a new name is long overdue. I know it’s too late for this and it’s a shitty solution but is there any better solution? It’s such an uphill battle against the people who leech of the uBlock brand [31]😩

For DC and other cities concerned about rising traffic, a new study in Portland, Oregon suggests scooters could be a solution. Residents and tourists are using e-scooters in place of car trips, and scooters are drawing people whoʼve never ridden a bike or never traveled in a bike lane.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation [4]sent a questionnaire to 75,000 scooter users and received 4,500 responses. Among the findings, reported by BikePortland:
E-scooters are replacing automobile trips. Thinking of their last e-scooter trip, 34 percent of Portlanders said they would have driven a personal car (19 percent) or hailed a taxi, Uber or Lyft (15 percent). 

 The auto trip replacement numbers are even higher among tourists and visitors (48 percent). Thinking of their last e-scooter trip, 34 percent of visitors would have taken a taxi, Uber or Lyft, and 14 percent would have driven a personal vehicle had e-scooters not been available. 

 E-scooters are bringing new Portlanders to the bike lane. Forty-five percent of survey respondents reported “never” biking and 78 percent had never used BIKETOWN prior to using e-scooters. 

 Portlanders are reducing or considering reducing their auto ownership due to e-scooters. Six percent of users report getting rid of a car because of e-scooters and another 16 percent have considered it.

The Portland study also said respondents preferred to ride in a bike lane, followed by the street and finally sidewalk as the last choice. In cities including DC which have e-scooters, whether to ride on the sidewalk or in the street has been a subject of debate. Bike advocates point out that the clear answer is to have a comprehensive network of bike lanes, where scooters have so far coexisted well, so that people donʼt have to ride in a street with fast-moving cars or on a sidewalk except for very short distances.

DC continues to limit dockless bike and scooter companies to 400 vehicles per company, a number spokespeople for the companies have said is much too low and doesnʼt meet the demand. In September, Arlington [5]decided to institute a flexible cap, where each company could deploy 350 to start, but increase by 50 per month as long as their bikes or scooters were drawing three or more rides per day on average.

Montgomery County did not cap numbers but limited its pilot to three non-electric dockless bike companies in Silver Spring; itʼs [6]now considering a larger zone and allowing e-bikes and scooters.

This particular study looked at scooters, but [7]an earlier Uber analysis found similar effects. Uber users who started riding JUMP (which Uber owns) decreased their Uber usage by 10% and 15% during work days, but Uber actually sold them 15% more trips because their new JUMP trips made up for it and then some.

For DC residents, itʼs not too late to sign the letter calling for [8]20,000 shared bikes and scooters (Capital Bikeshare and dockless) which we created with WABA, CSG, the Sierra Club, and other organizations.

Arabella. Lark & Roe. Mae. NuPro. Small Parts.

You might not know it from their names, but these brands all [1]belong to Amazon.

Amazon’s private label business is booming, on pace to generate $7.5 billion this year and $25 billion by 2022, [2]according to estimates from investment firm SunTrust Robinson Humphrey. To accelerate that growth, the company is inviting manufacturers to create products exclusively for its collection of private brands.

The “Amazon Accelerator Program” is hiring a senior product manager for private brands, [3]CNBC reported. The job [4]listing invites applicants to “invent and Think Big to take an idea from concept to reality for Amazon customers.” Duties include managing and planning inventory, identifying business opportunities, and working across a wide swath of Amazon divisions, including consumables, Prime Pantry, Prime Fresh, Prime Now, and Amazon Go.

Another job listing spotted by CNBC, for a [5]private brands program leader, notes that the “Private Brands team is rapidly expanding and is looking for an exceptional product leader to grow the business.”

Brands created through the accelerator will be exclusive to Amazon, but not owned by it, the company said. Manufacturers will create, produce, trademark, and own the products they offer.

“Amazon Accelerator creates new opportunities for manufacturers and offers a way for them to launch brands and products directly to Amazon customers,” an Amazon spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “For customers, this program adds products to our assortment and allows us to offer an even wider selection of high quality products at a great value.”

Amazon’s push into private labels could threaten the third-party sellers who do business on its website, and are important to the company’s own bottom line. Amazon generated $9.7 billion in revenue from commissions and services it provided to third-party sellers (e.g., fulfillment and shipping fees) in the latest quarter, ended July 26. Earlier this week, eBay sent Amazon a cease-and-desist accusing it of a [6]shady, multiyear campaign to lure eBay sellers over to the Amazon marketplace.

But the massive volume of stuff peddled by third-party sellers [7]also creates problems. Amazon at times has struggled to police offensive products, or to banish counterfeits from the marketplace. Private label brands created by Amazon and manufacturers it works with exclusively could help the company get a tighter grip on the quality of merchandise sold across the site.

According to a [8]separate report by CNBC, Amazon has been promoting its house brands at the bottom of listings for competitors’ products.
