Lamborghini could be headed to Le Mans in 2021 report says

Lamborghini Lamborghini has never been hugely into racing. I mean, sure, it has the Super Trofeo series, but compared to its main rival Ferrari, the folks from Sant’Agata keep things mostly on the streets. That could change though, according to a report published on Thursday by Autocar.The reason that could change is the major revision to the top classes at Le Mans and consequently the rest of the World Endurance Championship (WEC). The insanely expensive and technologically demanding LMP1 class is going the way of the dodo bird, and the folks from the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) are planning to replace it with a new hypercar class — a type of car that Lamborghini understands and is well-situated to compete with.If Lamborghini does choose to compete in the WEC, it’ll have to fend off some truly wild offerings from rival companies like Aston Martin and even Toyota’s Gazoo Racing. To keep those competitors at bay, it seems likely — based on comments made by Stefano Domenicali — that the company would model its efforts on the one-off SC18 that it built for a customer rather than create a model from scratch due to resource constraints.When Autocar asked Domenicali directly about the likelihood of a Le Mans entry, he kept his cards close to his chest saying, “There are discussions and we are looking to understand the regulations to see if it is of interest. There is nothing to say until the evaluation is finished, and at that point the answer could be yes or no. For now, it is possible.”If the answer to that ends up being yes, then Lamborghini had better come to it soon if it plans on fielding a competitive car, especially with the new class being set to debut for the 2020 racing season.

The director imbues the nativity touch out and out via all modes available & integrates it such that they cannot be separated from the ‘real’ happening that matters.last_img read more

AntiPiracy Bill Could Do More Harm Than Good for Small Companies

first_imgNovember 18, 2011 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » A bill in Congress that aims to punish “rogue” websites that publish or sell pirated content could potentially harm small businesses as much as it could help them.The “Stop Online Piracy Act” aims to punish online businesses that host copyrighted content without authorization — including peer-to-peer content sharing sites, among others. It was introduced last month by House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Rep. Lamar Smith (D-TX).So far, the bill has gained support from major entertainment industry players including the Motion Picture Association of America. During a Congressional hearing this week, MPAA senior executive vice president Michael O’Leary argued that these rogue websites negatively affect the revenues of major Hollywood studios as well as the “95,000 small businesses across the country involved in the production and distribution of movies and television.”But while the SOPA bill could provide added protection for some small businesses, such as those in the entertainment industry, those who oppose the bill argue that the potential downsides outweigh the benefits. “While you’re trying to protect people who have innovated in the past by giving them an additional level of protection for their intellectual property, in doing so you risk penalizing the innovators of the future,” says Andrea Matwyshyn, assistant professor of legal studies and business ethics at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia. “You create a more constrained innovation space in an environment that’s more hostile to IP.”Entrepreneurs — especially those who are or plan to aggregate or remix content, or share content in new ways online — should pay attention to how the SOPA bill plays out in Congress and what the consequences will be, Matwyshyn says. No specific timetable has been set for a vote, she says.This week, tech giants including Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter and AOL collectively voiced opposition to the bill, writing a letter to the Committee on the Judiciary. As currently written, the SOPA bill would allow copyright holders to obtain court orders to disallow other companies from doing business with the sites that are alleged to be in violation of copyright. It could also force search engines and domain registries to censor the infringing sites. The companies argue that the bill would undermine the intent of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which reduces the liability of online companies — large and small — that act in good faith to remove infringing content from their sites.A similar bill, called the Protect IP Act, passed the U.S. Senate earlier this year but was effectively put on hold by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), over its potential to “muzzle speech and stifle innovation and economic growth,” he said.When a statute has a “heavy-handed approach” such as SOPA or the Protect IP Act, there is potential that individuals or companies with deep pockets will leverage their legal expertise and the legislation to eliminate the ability of new entrants into the IP space with novel business models, Matwyshyn says. “There’s a relatively clear consensus, in at least some corners of the legal community, that this is not the best way to achieve the goals that Congress is aiming for,” she says.center_img 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more
