New ACTA Leak Confirms Major Threat to Internet

The internet is under attack by our very own US Government, working on behalf of corporate interests in the entertainment and content industries. What does this mean for you?

http://www.youtube.com/wa...

1. You can be banned from the internet, fined and even jailed if a copyright holder ACCUSES you of wrongdoing three times. Whether you violated their copyright or not.

2. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be forced to invest heavily in intrusive monitoring infrastructure. Guess who'll end up covering those costs?

3. Once intrusive monitoring infrastructure (such as deep packet inspection) is in place, say goodbye to your privacy! To avoid liability, ISPs will need to monitor every packet of data that is transmitted or stored on their network to make sure it doesn't contain copyrighted materials. This means they'll see your emails, your facebook messages, which sites you visit on the internet, and what you do on those sites.

4. The government rewards their pet corporations for being lazy and refusing to adapt and innovate.

We are seeing

the fruit borne from the twisted compilation of communist-oligarch seeds planted in the administration of traitor, Woodrow Wilson.

We have an enemy who's policies are deeply ingrained in every aspect of American society and culture. It's sometimes understandable, nonetheless inexcusable, that most people just can't see it.

They won't see it until they are in a death-grip of this massive-tentacled beast.

Break out

the shortwave.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Just wait till they try to

Just wait till they try to levy a fine against me or ban me from the interenet. There are a whole host of ways to skin the Obama cat!

Yeah right.

Would this be coming from the same dingbats that can't even get a hold of malware or rogue infections?

I'll believe it when I see it.

Freenet Project, Darkweb, EFF, etc.?

How will stalwarts of online privacy like these be affected by such government implementations (or vice-versa)?

I'm pretty sure the internet is just too massive and complex (and full of larger numbers of much smarter people) for the authoritarian pricks to police it effectively as seems to be the goal here. Though, I'm thinking if they start enacting crap like this, it'll be similar to all their other "Wars" in that they'll open the floodgates to a huge black market (in this case, of copyright infringement and illicit online activity like child porn), while actively working to stifle constitutionally-protected freedoms of speech and of the press, among others.

Hearing stuff like this, though I've known it was coming and has been going on in much smaller chunks and gradual levels for years, it seems like too obvious a setup for a showdown of violated civil liberties, which can only paint the government as a villain. Of course, they'll spin the shit out of the situation to make them seem meek and mild but "tough on crime."

Any thoughts? I guess I'm trying to frame in my mind the significance of this legislation relative to the strength and size of the amalgamation of online communities who have no problem telling the Gestapo and their lapdogs where, and how far, to shove it.

For liberty!! *gong*

For Liberty!! *GONG*

In a sick way, I think that

In a sick way, I think that will be a real eye opener for them. They will find out how many people dispise the Federal Gubermint and realize they made Another Big Arse Mistake.

Fitting for a world full of slaves.

Slaves are so very dumb. Best to keep them that way.

Well, they sure are working every

angle and avenue. I will miss this wonderful invention that had such great possibilities for PEACE and FREEDOM but it will turn into another propaganda tool just like tv, so sad.
