Elon Musk Might Make Twitter Worse According to Bill Gates

Published

on

After Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition proposal was accepted, Bill Gates issued a warning to Twitter. Everyone is wondering what the tech billionaire will do with Facebook, and he’s already hinted that he wants to broaden the company’s freedom of expression concept. Musk, on the other hand, has been cautioned by Microsoft’s co-founder.

The Possibility

“He actually could make it worse,” Gates remarked at an event. While that is a harsh assessment of Musk’s ability, Gates acknowledged that the world’s richest man has proven to be formidable in his past commercial undertakings.

Pushing Through

It’s unclear how Musk plans to modify the social media platform to give people more control over their free expression. He is, nevertheless, dedicated to make Twitter the “town square” of public discourse.

Allowing people to say whatever they want might be dangerous, according to Gates. Gates asked Tesla CEO Elon Musk to reconsider his ambitions for Twitter to focus on freedom of speech. The outcome would only be seen after some time, but let’s all hope Elon makes a huge and positive change when it comes to reaching his goal for the platform.

Disney Might Lose Rights to Mickey Mouse

Published

By

It has been revealed that Disney may be set to lose the rights to its most well-known and adored figure. According to reports, Republican Senator Josh Hawley has presented a bill that would strip Disney of the copyright on the original Mickey Mouse if it passes.

Not All Fun and Games

If passed, the law would reduce copyright protections from 95 to 56 years, meaning Disney would lose some of its older copyrights immediately.

As Big as It Gets

Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks came up with the idea for Mickey Mouse in 1928. The character has since become Disney’s mascot and one of the world’s most recognizable cartoon characters.

Hawley’s bill is unlikely to pass, according to Deadline, citing a Democrat-controlled Senate as one of the reasons. Senator Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on intellectual property, is described as a “major supporter for the film business when it comes to fighting piracy and improving copyright rights,” according to the report.
