FR will be targeted and confiscated as soon as enforcement begins if SOPA passes from bill to law.
As will every other forum that can be considered fellow travelers in the online advocacy field.
Better ping Jim Thompson, too........
The Feral government - all three branches - are NOT needed in the internet world.
They should worry about their own networks.
They should pass no new laws and create no new regulations.
As things are right now, everything works.
Big business is far too worried about making money off of rogue countries.
That’s what we get for dealing with them at all.
IMHO, there should be zero commerce with rogue nations; if that was the case, we would not have 1/2 of our current problems and the good nations of the world would prosper tremendously.
Now we’re stuck with it. But IMHO, it is far wiser to let these companies that want to sell to these buggers work out their own problems with the buggers, than to start passing draconian control of the internet laws.
After all, if a market I’m selling to is such a festering rathole of thieves that I can’t make money - why am I there trying to sell to them ? Let the rathole fester and fall behind technologically. When they’re all starving and begging us for help, maybe they’ll listen and change. If not, lett’em starve.
Instead, we’re doing business with them which props up failed ideologies.
Man are we stupid.
Rep. Darrell Issa is against it, apparently has/will introduce something as an alternative ?
