Judiciary Commitee to Censor Internet on Thursday?

Postby Ace! on Mon Sep 27, 2010 11:59 pm

This isn't spam, I promise.

But, is for real? Man, I hope I'm just misreading this. I normally don't sign petitions because they're usually about keeping nudity in God of War or something trivial and wholly unimportant, but this kind of seems like the opposite of nudity in God of War (while still kind of being the same).

Thoughts?

No idea, but why waste time signing an Internet petition, as if such a thing could protect our liberty.

Yeah, petitions hold as much weight as a fart in the wind. The most they can do is make you feel slightly less useless by doing something despite the fact there isn't a goddamn thing you can actually do to change anything.

Only slightly more helpful would be writing your state senator, which will probably be just as effective since they're too busy blowing eachother to actually read bills or too lazy to take two seconds to stop snorting crack to actually care.

That's probably true, but if everyone thinks like that, then there's not going to be a dictionary sized printout of people disagreeing put on every senator's desk. And... the government will save thousands of dollars on paper...

That's a tough one.

The ostensible purpose of this legislation is the defense of copyright and intellectual property, which is a duty delegated to Congress in the US constitution. It's somewhat misleading for this group to frame the debate in the context of free speech and censorship.

'Course, just because it's in committee doesn't mean it's close to passing, although it's possible with Viacom, the MPAA, and the US Chamber of Commerce behind the bill, as well as SAG and some other union, too. Only the EFF and some P2P group opposing it. Maybe if ISPs stepped up and raised a complaint about this being burdensome to implement. Really, people should be rallying their ISPs to voice opposition to the bill--at least the ISPs stand a better chance of being heard.

Well, looks like they haven't censored us yet. I'm off to view porn.

The phrase, "Horrible thing is going to happen?" is equivalent to the phrase, "Horrible thing is not actually going to happen."
