The 'Bill To Combat Online Infringement'

Concern about the 'Bill To Combat Online Infringement' - #eff #fsf #dmca #music #downloads #technology

Who are the REAL pirates? Those rallying behind the 'Bill To Combat
Online Infringement' seem too quick to label internet users as
pirates, an archaic term which refers to terrible crimes on the high
seas. Exploiters from Hollywood and the likes of Viacom rallied
behind the Senate bill. Entities such as these are well known for
their seemingly endless capacity to harm both their customers and the
artists that toil and create the works. If we are to call something
piracy, surely THAT is piracy. Can we trust people given to such over
the top rhetoric, and with so little respect for our rights. Can we
sensibly give them the keys to our internet access?
