I thought this was a joke does this have anything to do with the free digital and internet that is being talked about? In illinois they are talking about basic cable channels will become free and internet will be free aswell but there will be some censored sites. Damn I have to start paying attention.
No, this is about piracy preventions and the government's attempt to stifle our rights in and out of the country and censor everything we do.
Exactly. I can see the online piracy thing, to an extent. But, the better way to go about stopping that is targeting the sites themselves, not the internet as a whole. Stop the funding of piracy sites and you effectively stop the sites themselves. And, I actually hope that doesn't happen internet wide. I'll freely admit that I've downloaded OOP movies and some games that are hard to find, as well as OOP books and such. The bills they're trying to pass remind me too much of 1984 and big brother watching you.

I download tons of crap no joke but if I watch or listen and enjoy it I go and buy the product. I've never downloaded and kept something I didn't like. its my "try before I buy" and "return policy" you can't censure the internet, sites will just become Code and hard to find everything will be over seas this just seems like a waste of time and money
