Yeah, I bet 5 bucks.. Somebody will crack this "cyber id" Before the first week is over.
You really think they'll be able to run a database that holds ID'S for EVERY American without it f**king up? Not only is this unsafe, but down right idiotic. Fake IDS will be the first thing on the torrents and I doubt it will pose any threat to pirating. ISPs can barely keep up with the demand of traffic now.. imagine them trying to monitor all of us. Physically impossible, impractical and a waste of economic resources.
Regulating the internet is like trying to teach a retarded kid to be normal. As much as you try it'll never work. The internet is too vast and too many companies will be against this. Especially sites where privacy is a key and anonymity is encouraged. Not only that, this ID system will create a conflict with every other country in the world. Being identified as a "American internet user" on any site you go can cause major security issues for both user and server side. They can't just rewrite the internet with this bs act of identification.
Good luck implementing this Obama.. give me back my tax dollars for wasting our f**king money on this bs.
so you just regulate the providers, and you implement restrictions on thier servers, but I think somebody said more then anything the internet is a wide open market, and the government is not getting anything out of it, so of course they want to tax it........EVERYBODY USES IT........its pure monetary, why do you think they got behind the RIAA, you honest think they give a f**k about the Rolling Stones.....they want that money...........
