Re-read my post. You may learn something.

If the problem continues, which it most likely will, it will continue on a much smaller scale. Most people will not jump thru hopes to steal something. They only steal now, bcuz it's so damn easy. I'm sure everyone would walk into Walmart and steal sh*t if all the employees worked in the back.

What's just as important is that people will become more aware that what they are doing is wrong, unlike the current-friendly attitude that is widely shared about piracy. No, they won't drop that pro-piracy attitude immediately, but once they feel that the bill is not as harmless as conspirators and communists are making it out to be, they'll get over it and accept it.

And I'm a Libertarian, so I don't think too highly about the bill, but SOMETHING needs to be done for the sake of America, the American foundation,l copyrights in general and the fostering of proper morals. It's not right to protect physical items, but turn your back on digital items. Cuttin off websites that purposely or knowingly host copyrighted material is a GREAT idea and I'm behind that 100%. k!ll the source.
You had something there until you mentioned "communists"... It's not the 1950's. I've read up on the bill, and it is as harmful as folks are making it out to be. The moral stealing part of it is erroneous. People will still find it, they will root it out, and it will continue. Just because it might be a little harder doesn't mean they'll stop. So, I find your logic to be flawed.

And, one more thing:

Killing the source would mean not demonizing every single person who might post a link to a song they like on their facebook... It would mean THE SOURCE, which here would mean where these leaks come from rather than the sites that may host them. I'm not saying that piracy is good, I'm saying there are more direct (and better) ways of approaching it rather than punishing everyone at once for no reason.

You can't rationalize that someone shouldn't pay for a movie because the studio already makes enough money. That's basically saying that since walmart made enough money im not paying for my groceries.

This bill is not only for piracy. They don't want people like wiki links releasing information that could potentially compromise lives. Certain aspects are not or everyone to see. Some things you can't understand and never will without specialized training and schooling. A google education does not qualify anyone to try and preach knowledge to
Someone.

This is not aimed at you but many people who sit around and google things and read blogs that some other semi educated person wrote.
Dude, re-read my post. I never rationalized that someone shouldn't pay. Look, I love the movies. So, I'm willing to pay ten to fifteen bucks for the experience of being in the movie theater. I'm saying that there are other ways of approaching, and using the kind of draconian scare tactics that this bill suggests in its vague wording is not the way. Like I said before, go after the source of these leaks, and bam... Done. Personal freedoms are preserved, and you take down the pirates.

It will not stop the problem, or curb the issue. I'm certain of this. It will only cause more problems, and I believe this bill is NOT the only way to stop piracy. Period. There are better ways of doing this. So, until this bill is reworked in a major way, no. I don't think its a good thing in the slightest.

Digital CD's would be the best move. Just add the option to re-download what you already bought to prevent refunding or money issues..

Never once in my post did I suggest that was the only reason I was against it.

They seek to control the flow of information through means that are unethical, and unfeasible. I do believe there is already a bill in existence that directly contradicts this bill. It's called "The Freedom of Information Act". Read up on me, my dude.

All it takes if one copyrighted photo, article, quote or someone who comments on your site to drop your blog or website. Read up on the current bill.

I already did, and I believe I did mention that in a previous post.

Anyway, that has absolutely NO bearing on my previous post. Try again.

In my last post, I stated that the entertainment aspect isn't the only part of the bill that is a problem. That's not even the biggest issue with the bill. It's the control & flow of information on the internet. It's the revenue that the internet brings (which makes up a vast sum of our creative capital). It's the basic freedoms of speech, and freedom to information that is at stake here. For me, the entertainment part of it isn't the main concern.

We'll see. Sometimes they do what they threaten, but a lot of the times, they just don't do anything. Hopefully they'll do something this time though (if it comes to that).

Of course, I do not support any type of illegal behavior...
