I wonder how long they are gona take before introducing bills that outlaw the use of the internet because it can provide non US goverment biased and
provided information and views ...
You know what these kinds of bills does? They make the entire software and hardware development industry move out of the US. Something that has been
happening for quite a while already ...
Also, with putting people in jail for doing cam recordings in a cinema, they don't address the "warez"/"moviez" problem at all. Since ALL the
major distributions of movies are straight Digital copy's of Press and digital cinema disks. Theres only very few camjobs available online, and the
ones that are are usualy standalone people that did it, not the big players like Razor1911 and Reloaded.
The Pro's in movie prerelease distribution have deep contacts within the industry and press and copy movies straight from Press preview DVD's and
cinema digital disks.
Then the bill against spyware. A big load of bullocks. Spyware, spam and other things are a Sysadmins job to prevent and block.
Making bills against them only alows for a platform to ban or block non US sites ... same as the patriot acts alow the feds to search homes and detain
people under the pretence of a "terrorisme" accusation.
Last but not least, and I already said it at the start of my reply, bills like this only cause the developers to move out of the US and alow another
platform for goverment based sencoring of media, internet and technology.
Its starting to become sickening how HUGE the conflict of interest problem with the Movie/Music industry and News agency's is starting to become in
Technologists and copyright activists were most alarmed by the Induce Act, backed by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who in the past five years has
received $158,000 in campaign contributions from the television, movie and music industries, according to the Center for Responsive
Just reads to me as "TV, Movie and Music industry just bought themself another law"
