umm so im im getting this correct the usa is gonna start seizeing international domain names? i dont see that flying and i dont see china giveing two
squirts about anything the usa tells them they can or cant do so i forsee that being a pretty big problem some of the european countries might go for
it but not all of them i see this as a measure that will fail and realy have no teeeth that will just incourage china to keep illegaly copying all the
things they do
if i was wrong and the usa is just gonna prevent access INSIDE the USA i see that working but there being a huge backlash against isp's and whatnot
but the second therory is problay more likely? am i flat wrong on this please correct me if im wrong
I'm with you here. It's really going to suck when CHINA provides more freedom to Americans than America does, isn't it?
Remember the days of "radio Free America", where America was sending uncensored (by the local governments) news and other programming into Eastern
Europe, giving them another opinion? looks like America may have that coming to a theater near them before long.
Here's the scenario: China sets up their own little internet section expressly for "informing" Americans as to the "real" events they aren't
being made aware of because of 'net censorship, governmental domain name theft, etc.They punch a special hole through the Great Firewall just for
that purpose, Chinese produced software to run the whole show. Access is provided through proxies run in neutral (and probably some not so neutral)
countries to re-route the traffic around censorship blocks. Everything, from the data packets to the destination IP, is encrypted end to end, from the
user's computer (before it even hits his local ISP), through all the nodes, to the "Internet Free America" servers on China. That much is done
already - it's how you bypass the Great Firewall going the other way.
The draw? Free "pirated" entertainment, software, etc. That brings the traffic in (like the music broadcast on Radio Free Europe), but the Chinese
slip in some "special" payloads of their own, either software or information - or more likely both.
What a kick in the ass that would be - to have China "free" Americans who wouldn't get off their asses to save themselves.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
