But I cant help but wonder what percentage of the opposition was for the danger to websites and what was the number for those that just hope to keep it easy to pirate content.
Those that just want to make sure they can do that stuff are going to be disappointed when they just edit a few lines and pass it almost like it is now.
Congress is technologically tone-deaf, but they can work legalese like a bastard.
Lucky he’s not in jail after his financial shenanigans.
Proof that bribes and kick backs pay off.
Did anyone catch that Chris Dodd was a lobbyist for this? This is and was a very bad idea.
When I saw Chris Dodd was a lobbyist for I knew right away it is and was a very bad idea.
So.....let’s see if I got this straight. The Lefties aren’t upset so much over the anti-piracy legislation as they are about the unfounded fantasy that anything short of every freedom of expression under the sun would suggest they have no other means of expression, communication or information gathering. And, by extension, the big, bad United States government is out to abolish anything artistic, cultural and educational in their quest to make automatons out of us all.
Not to mention we’re all inching closer to belting out “March of the Volunteers” at baseball games simply due to the government enforcing the proprietary rights of the entertainment industry. How the government gets accused of being in the Dark Ages (while adapting to technological advancements and the threats that are imposed upon us all as a result) is beyond me.
The Native Americans did just fine with smoke signals. The animal kingdom does as much with less.
Aren’t these eggheads supposed to be the all-knowing book readers and bra burners who think the rest of the world is populated by knuckle-dragging grunts who can’t string a sentence together?
Personally, with the crap that seeps from Hollywood and the detritus that pervades the wire, I wish they WOULD start censoring - if only for the improvement of programming quality.
The internet is worse. I’m so sick of having to stay on top of all the anti-virus software and control features on my PC, because the net has become an uninhibited jungle full of cretins who love their right to view all and see all while doing their abject best to spoil the whole enterprise for the rest of us.
“Hack The Planet” is their credo and every damned one of them are opposed to the latest that the House will vote on because - God forbid - they may have to exercise self-control for a moment of their lives, and actually pay for something.
This is proof that the current laws already in place are adequate enough.
