Mozilla tells DHS: we won't help you censor the Internet


The US Department of Homeland Security has asked the Mozilla Foundation to take down the "Mafiaa Fire" plugin, which automatically redirects browsers to the new URLs for sites that have had their .com and .net addresses seized in the latest round of the copyright wars. The Mozilla Foundation has firmly refused.

Good for Mozilla, I am in full support for net neutrality. The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) feels they can just seize any dot com or net that it characterized as a "pirate" or child porn, with little due process or judicial oversight. (Just going after a website isn't going to solve that problem, you have to go after the individuals who are making that stuff)

Yes, I agree CP is horrible and shouldn't be tolerated, but the methods ICE is using is uneffective and is just a tool for the RIAA, MPAA etc.

That's pretty good considering we have Google censoring us and they won't. Interesting.......looks like they woke up too

We shall deal with those scums if the threaten or do anything to the mozilla people. We are luring all the unworthy half human beasts to expose themselves so that we can mark them for termination of their existence in the universe.The fate they shall suffer is far worse than the pain and suffering that is experienced in Hell

This is GREAT news! Mozilla (Firefox) are my hero of the day. Without a court order or law violation, the government has absolutely no business barking orders to the private sector. This is what the USA is supposed to be about!!! All these new security agencies are always trying to test the boundaries and we need to keep standing up to them.

This needs to be flagged and shown as an example of keeping tyranny in check! I hope people keep waking up.

Could you be more clear?
Your post was pretty ambiguous (as to which side you're on).

Clear? Are you that thick as to how they work? You want me to pick sides just because I post a comment?

Been using Mozilla for a long time. Love it. Love the control it gives me on the net and the ability to almost shape shift my browser if I desire.

They have always been a bit of a 'Go against the Norm' player so I will support them.

Anyone who hasn't tried their browser but agrees with this latest stand against TPTB should at least give them a go and try the FireFox Browser for a few days.

If for nothing else but to show support:

www.mozilla.com...

Easy to install, configure and delete if it's not for you.

GL!

We need a "vote with your computer, vote with your wallet" campaign.

Renegade companies need to be rewarded, and bend-over companies blacklisted. But we need more people to get out of their comfort zone and change their internet browsing behavior.

I had avoided the latest release of Firefox for a few days and had been using my 3 other browsers, but this morning I downloaded the latest version, and the one thing that had not been running right was the you tube videos.

This newest version solved that problem. It also made the bookmarks reappear where it used to be, which was hidden for some unknown reason.

Rock on Mozilla...

Right on Mozilla! Now I have yet another reason to love them. I wish more companies would take a leaf out of their book. I can't believe that we the people allow the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (A.K.A. Department of Homeland Security) to censor the internet. I know of several websites that have nothing to do with kiddie porn, much less homeland security, that those SOB's have taken down. I mean, seriously, do they expect us to believe that a website that doesn't host, simply links to videos that infringe on copyrights, is a threat to our safety?

I just installed the extension on my Firefox 4. The NSA can go to hell for all I care. Been using Mozilla for many years, before Firefox even. I love it. I can download any Flash video and watch it later with VLC Player. I always set mine for "Private Browsing" and use non tracking software on it.

Im downloading Firefox right now in support. When the people defend companies that go against these types of internet restrains, other companies see the beauty in defending the people.

So go download, and star/flag this post !

Five stars, three cheers, two thumbs up, and a round of drinks for Mozilla!

More Americans live in fear of the Domestic Terrorists in the Dept. of Homeland Security than live in fear of the Taliban or Al Qeida. Remember how they used to say the terrorists in the Middle East hated us for our freedom? Not any more.... The Government Sponsored Terrorists have reversed that trend. We have more terrorists coming across our open borders every day than will ever fly into an airport on a commercial flight. Yet Obama, Holder, and Napolitano persist in insisting the borders are not a problem. That is because they need the illegal aliens voting so they can keep their political office.

I remember when Google was "for the people" too, but they got to them. Everyone has a price, they just haven't found Mozillas' yet.
