    We did... for now. It'll come around again some other day, but for now the internet is still free and not under a totalitarian regime controlled by companies wanting to sue anyone who so much as thinks about doing something they don't like.

    Have you heard about the retaliation this caused Anonymous shut down multiple websites yesterday as a way to threaten the government. Hopefully this will scare them into not passing the bill.

    It was mentioned in the article I linked, though I never pursued it. To think: just yesterday I saw a post on 4chan mentioning that they should do something...lol.

    They'll just re-write it a bit and tack it onto something else.. probably having to do with the classic "can't not support" stuff like anti terrorism or anti child porn.

    Perhaps I don't understand - but why are they being called "copyright terrorists" by some - if I take a photo, it is my choice to let others use it - or not. They make the product, so why should they lose any money? I don't buy for a second it's because "they have so much already" ... it remains their intellectual property. Forever. I've spent close to $13,000 on cameras and lenses since April of 2010 for grins and giggles. It makes me happy, so money well-invested. But who am I to say that someone else can't make a living and reap the rewards of their talents? Or am I misunderstanding this issue? From what I understand, people think they should be allowed to download any movie to their hard drive without compensation and without consequence?

    The issue isn'tthe motive, it's the means.

    The proposed bills would be both ineffective at their intended purpose, and would likely be disastrous for the internet.
