[QUOTE=SoldjahBoy] I have showed this to at least 200 people now.

Honestly, this can't get through... there's just no way.

I also feel very passionate about this. It will destroy all hope, dreams, and freedoms. This must be stopped at all costs.

When your government shuts down the internet, shut down your government.

Wouldn't the internet be brutally slow if this happened? Their conveyer belt analogy of packets coming and going was only mostly accurate. Files aren't transferred in one packet. So for an ISP to meaningfully scan your data they would have to wait for all of the packets of a particular file to arrive then scan it. Not only do they have to determine what the file is, but they would also have to determine if it is copyrighted before sending it on. During which time your ISP would have to block the packets from getting to you in order to make sure you don't get your counterfeit data. This process would have to be repeated for every file and every user.

just found out about this
completely unbelievable
as an american, I'm pissed; if I were british, I'd be really pissed.
I'm a little late hearing about this - but a British citizen, Richard ODwyer, is being extradited to the US for copyright infringement. Apparently, it isn't even illegal in the UK, at least not the way he did it.
short response from president Barack Obama, and general overview by BBC
interview with mother on wsws.org
This whole thing is getting so far out of hand, it's ridiculous. The US "Justice" Dept is trying to enforce US law worldwide. Once again, this agreement to be able to extradite on a whim is based on 9/11 and terror, and now they're just using it as a means of control. It's very aggravating that only the powerhungry seem to rise to power. I suppose it's a an obvious correlation, but still inconvenient for the rest of us humans just trying to live our lives.   lucid2012-02-07 16:13:06
