I only pirate things I don't like, so the companies lose money and stop making those things. If I find out someone's pirating something I do happen to like, I rat on them.

* Three-strikes policies and laws that require Internet intermediaries to terminate their users' Internet access on repeat allegations of copyright infringement

Dear governing body,

I have it on good authority that NBC Universal, Viacom, Disney, CBS, News Cop, Time Warner, and Sony America have each infringed on three of my copyrights. I have no physical evidence of this, but I would like to allege it. Actually, I'd like to allege it three times.

kgf: OH NO!! If they start regulating the internet like this, I may have to start actually paying for the stuff I want!!! Then I'd have to get a job!!!

NOOOOOOOOOO!


1. We allege you have stolen our content. That you haven't doesn't matter; we allege it anyway because you're using a lot of the internets and we need that oversold bandwidth for more customers. Anyway, we're cutting you off. Toodles.

2. This.

The nice thing about the TPP is it would be a TREATY or Executive Agreement -- which, under current SCOTUS rulings TRUMPS ANY CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS.

Umm, what?

Sorry dude, but thats just an urban legend. The "law of the land" treaty portion was written when the word "treaty" had a more broad sense, as in not just foreign treaties with nations, but also printed publications and the like.

I stand corrected: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reid_v._Cover


Oh. And may I add that I've never been more pleased to find a long-held belief to be mistaken.

mod3072: maggoo: Subjecting the will of a country to the whim of a couple of corporations isn't fascism?

It depends. If MY party is power when it happens, then no. If those other assholes are the ones who ram it down our throats, then yes, yes it is. If it is a bipartisan effort (which is fairly likely, since the only thing those farkers can agree on is screwing over the rest of us), then the answer is maybe. It was probably the other team's idea, and my side got tricked into supporting it.

This. Stop blindly supporting your side, idiots. Yes, I am talking to you if you always vote for a certain party


Anyone that pays attention to politics AND has read the constitution AND is anything other than a libertarian might be retarded.

I don't know, there were an awful lot of "allegeds" in there. Unless the story wasn't quoting verbatim and was slanted by the writer to generate outrage.

Nawwww, that never happens. You're fine, citizen. Now sit back and enjoy your government approved entertainment feed. Our records show that you need to make up a few hours. You haven't been viewing unapproved materials, have you?

I have no problem with this, as long as there's a minimum statutory damages for wrongful alleged infringement of 1 billion USD.

-Well, a lot of bribes/donations can have that effect on congresscritters.


These lobbyists don't realize they're being bilked by the congressvolk. It's like the abortion issue was until shiat got real last year.
