48. The best book on programming for the layman is "alice in wonderland"; but
that's because it's the best book on anything for the layman.

Corporate Overlords ?
Authored by: YurtGuppy on Friday, August 03 2012 @ 03:53 PM EDT
"Under laws specifically passed for the London Games, the brand army has
rights to enter shops and business premises and bring courts actions and fines
up to 20,000."

When you pass laws you have left the realm of corporate overlords. Now you are
in the land of the police, the intelligence services, ultimately the military.

What I don't understand is, why does a taxing authority have to find itself
selling "branding" rights at all? They could just raise the VAT or
the corporate income tax or tariffs on hotel rooms or whatever other income
stream the government wants.
