This is one of the first times I have seen a true conspiracy unravelled, and an actual way to stop the "stop internet privacy act".
Disney, CBS, Viacom, Microsoft etc etc, have been the exclusive providers of file sharing software like kazaa, and limewire, and have been suing the
people that use said software. Now they are also the ones spending 100s of millions to pass the law that will control all internet traffic, and enable
Disney, CBS, Viacom etc to sue the pants off everyone that has used their software.
SInce they distributed the software, advertised it as the best piracy software available, made their content available for download, and then profited
from that software, how can they possibly ask for a law to stop internet privacy, and give them the tools to control the webs content ? Here's the
interesting part, THEY CANT.
MgM VS Grokster ruling
"We hold that one who distributes a device with the object of promoting its use to infringe copyright, as shown by clear expression or other
affirmative steps taken to foster infringement, is liable for the resulting acts of infringement by third parties."
They are the liable ones, not you, as they provided it. It doesn't stop there, watch the video below.
