Freedb

Freedb is a database of compact disc track listings, where all the content is under the GNU General Public License. To look up CD information over the Internet, a client program calculates a hash function from the CD table of contents and uses it as a disc ID to query the database. If the disc is in the database, the client is able to retrieve and display the artist, album title, track list and some additional information, it was based on the now-proprietary CDDB. Because it inherited the CDDB limitations, there is no data field in the freedb database for composer; this limits its usefulness for classical music CDs. Furthermore, CDs in a series are introduced in the database by different people, resulting in inconsistent spelling and naming conventions across discs; as of 24 April 2006, the database held just under 2,000,000 CDs. As of 2007, MusicBrainz – a project with similar goals – had a freedb gateway that allowed access to their own database; the gateway was shutdown on March 18, 2019. The original software behind CDDB was released under the GNU General Public License, many people submitted CD information thinking the service would remain free.

The license was changed and some programmers complained that the new license included certain terms that they couldn't accept: if one wanted to access CDDB, one was not allowed to access any other CDDB-like database, any programs using a CDDB lookup had to display a CDDB logo while performing the lookup. In March 2001, CDDB, now owned by Gracenote, banned all unlicensed applications from accessing their database. New licenses for CDDB1 were no longer available, since Gracenote wanted to force programmers to switch to CDDB2; the license change motivated the freedb project, intended to remain free. Freedb is used by media players, audio taggers and CD ripper software; as of version 6 of the freedb protocol, freedb returns UTF-8 data. Magix acquired freedb in 2006. MusicBrainz – a project with similar goals – released a freedb gateway in 2007, allowing users to harvest information from the MusicBrainz database rather than freedb.freedb.org and its services will be shut down on March 31 of 2020.

Military prison

A military prison is a prison operated by the military. Military prisons are used variously to house prisoners of war, unlawful combatants, those whose freedom is deemed a national security risk by the military or national authorities, members of the military found guilty of a serious crime. Thus, military prisons are of two types: penal, for punishing and attempting to reform members of the military who have committed an offense, confinement-oriented, where captured enemy combatants are confined for military reasons until hostilities cease. Most militaries have some sort of military police unit operating at the divisional level or below to perform many of the same functions as civilian police, from traffic-control to the arrest of violent offenders and the supervision of detainees and prisoners-of-war; the Australian Defence Force has a single prison, the Defence Force Correctional Establishment at Holsworthy Barracks in Sydney. This prison houses military personnel sentenced to between 14 days to two years imprisonment.

In addition, there are 15 detention centres located within military bases across Australia. The Canadian Forces have one military prison, the Canadian Forces Service Prison and Detention Barracks, located at Canadian Forces Base Edmonton. Canadian Forces personnel who are convicted by military courts and receive a sentence of 14 days or more are incarcerated at CFSPDB. Men, although in the same prison, are kept separate from women; the prison is maintained and controlled by the Canadian Forces Military Police, although NCOs from various branches of the Canadian Forces serve at the prison as staff. Service personnel who are convicted of less serious offences are considered to be in "detention", undergo a strict military routine aimed at rehabilitation for their return to regular military service, whereas personnel convicted of more serious offences are considered to be in "prison" and upon completion of their sentence they are released from the military. Serious offenders with sentences longer than two years are transferred to the Canadian federal prison system after serving 729 days, to complete their sentence in the civilian prison system, followed by release from the Canadian Forces.

Any service personnel serving a sentence of 14 days or less are held in local base Military Police Detachment cells at the various Canadian Forces Bases within Canada. In Italy only one military jail now exists: the Santa Maria Capua Vetere. Under Italian law, only those in government service who are under investigation in front of a military court or are sentenced to the penalty of Reclusione Militare by a military or civil court are held there; those serving in the police corps are held in military jail. In Switzerland there are no special military prisons. Sentences are to be served in civilian prisons; the United Kingdom has one military correctional facility. The Military Corrective Training Centre, in the town of Colchester, is where non-commissioned servicemen and women who are convicted by military courts and sentenced to more than 28 days, but less than three years, will be incarcerated. Women, although in the same prison, are kept separate from men; the facility is controlled by the British Army's Military Provost Staff.

More serious offenders with longer sentences are transferred to HM Prison Service as part of their dishonourable discharge. There are three categories of prisoner: Those from the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, the Royal Air Force who are to remain in the Services after sentence and will serve their detention in A Company; those from the RN, RM, British Army and RAF who are to be discharged after their sentence and will serve their detention in D Company. Those held in Military custody awaiting the outcome of an investigation, or awaiting HM Prison or YOI placement; the United States military's equivalent to the county jail, in the sense of "holding area" or "place of brief incarceration for petty crimes," is known colloquially as the guardhouse or stockade by the army and air forces and the brig by naval and marine forces. U. S. military forces maintain several regional prisoner holding facilities in the U. S.. S. military prisons for names and locations. In the United States, differential treatment seems to be suggested, but by no means mandated, by the Founding Fathers in the Fifth Amendment to its constitution.

Members of the U. S. armed forces are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Male non-commissioned military personnel convicted by courts martial and sentenced to five or more years' confinement, male commissioned officers and male prisoners convicted of offenses related to national security end up at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Enlisted male military convicts who received sentences of less than five years are confined at various regional confinement facilities operated by the U. S. Military both in the continental United States and abroad. All female military personnel convicted of felonies serve their sentences at the Naval Consolidated Brig, Miramar located at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar near San Diego, California. In former times, criminals in the naval services, including those convicted of sodomy, were sent to the once-infamous Portsmouth Naval Prison, closed in 1974. Today’s American military prison systems are designed to house criminals who commit an offense while holding the job title of being in a branch of the military.
