How would you characterize "You will never be on a court of mine as long as you live"? Friendly banter?

No. But John McEnroe did similar things. Somehow it's different for women.

Not saying it's correct. For anyone.

Not friendly, of course, but also not a threat. Note she said "court of mine."

As a threat about officiating in tournaments she doesn't run, her remark makes no sense. She obviously has no say about who officiates at, for example, the U.S. Open. Yes, she could refuse to play if (say) Ramos were officiating, but then she'd either have to withdraw or forfeit.

OTOH, if "of mine" indicates ownership, it's something she could make stick. To me, that puts her remark on a par with, "You will never be welcome in my house."

Haha, I love it... morons who believe they are cleverer than the rest of the society. I would hang him by his balls in the middle of the town so the people can see him, and keep him there for few days or so... (he gets discount on the fact that he didn't rape the old lady, otherwise it will be "till his death").

Hey, at least he didn't rat out his buddies. This could serve him in good stead during his extended stay as a Guest of the State...

I don't know if it is the EU, One thing is sure : from one Disney rule to another the copyrights duration has gone from nothing, to 14 years after creation, to 100 years after the death or the author (which can be a company ! and companies never die, they also are "persons" but cannot be condemned to the same punishment as other "persons" : ever seen a company in prison ?)

Just as with patent law there is not much justice in the current law.

Yeah. You are referring to the Copyright Term Extension Act AKA the Mickey Mouse Protection Act (sponsored by Sonny Bono) enacted in the USofA.

Why the EU bent over and took this seems contrary to their claimed independence.

Perhaps they were told it would help protect their own artists (it won't), and they were dumb enough to believe it without critical thought nor analysis....
