if he knows what he's doing, the internet is impossible to police. Why not take a stroll through TORPARK?
If this information is true and correctly summarized...
They don't need to police every single one. Its the threat of such actions and the ability to act upon those threats which is significant. The ones
that they make examples out of will be enough to terrorize people into falling back into line. It will also provide the ability to legally harass and
sensor those who try to spread information which the government does not want spread. Three strikes and your out? No internet...forever?! How easy do
you think it would be to "find" copyrighted material on "specific" computers which is deemed inappropriately acquired.
I understand that, if used appropriately, this ruling would protect those whose work is being stolen and also will aid in monitoring dangerous people
and info that may be coming into or out of the country. However, these agencies are being run by human beings. That's all they are, just imperfect
human beings...with their own agendas.
As someone who travels a LOT with her laptop in tow holding various items, which are not only sensitive business documents but also personal
information not for some Joe-Schmo airport-security guards eyes...I am angered by this. I don't have anything illegal, I am not a copyright material
stealer, I am not a criminal. Why do I automatically become guilty until proven innocent as I walk through the airport gate.
I am going to research this more and try to hold my anger about this until I can see it with my own eyes.
Edited to add: I'm just gonna show up at the Airport tomorrow in my underwear. I think it would save a lot of time. And then Mr. security agent won't
have to troll my computer to see what I have.
Why am I so angry about this? I am going to go out into the sunshine for awhile and try to adjust my attitude. I am so fricking mad about this.
