Actually it`s the other way around. Everyone owns the internet and are able to build a bit of it by them selves. Build yourself an internet domain, ask you`re closest "neighbor" for connection to the rest of it, and voilà, your an owner.
If you build a server then you`re actually more than an owner, you`re in business. If you build a NODE, then you`re the connection to many other in the world.
Sorry, didn`t read your entire post as you`re opening line threw me off..

All this will do is kill the internet for the US. All creative minds will just have to leave the country, because they don't have these stupid rules anywhere else. Well, except China, and they all already know how to get around it.

It seems odd how these mysterious "bills" appear ever so often out of nowhere only to be forgotten in a few weeks... disappearing as fast as they surfaced.
seems very fishy.
