starsrift: DreamSnipers: A rare time I am proud of my countries policies. We are actually standing up for freedom.No. They're not. They're standing up for the ability to let the MPAA and associated lobbyists regulate the internet, instead of the UN.That's all this is. And sure, protectionism is fine, but the bottom line is that I'd rather have the UN regulate the internet than the MPAA. Though either way is farked, and if it was up to me, the answer would be 'none of the above'.
pute kisses like a man: blah blah blah words wordsthink of it, how many internet service provider options to you have? maybe 2 or 3 at most. there is no competition (for me, it's either cable or dsl, you have 2 distinct options). they are aware of this and realize they have all of the bargaining power. these are the relationships where regulations are most important. / dnrtfa// but, i think there needs to be some internet regulation to protect users from providers./// but no regulation for content
Great Janitor: The UN or the MPAA/RIAA. Neither is a choice I want, but honestly, it's better the devil you know.
