American Censorship Day

Today Congress is holding a hearing on a bill that would create the first Internet censorship system for people in the United States.

Not sure what there is to debate here, but I figured it's a political topic and worth posting about. Wondering what other people here think since we all spend quite a bit of time on the Internet and I can name 3 sites off the top of my head that would be affected by this, at least two that people here frequent quite a bit.

Our bubble is getting smaller and smaller and we're becoming more and more sheltered. It feels less like a government where the people are represented by a few selected voices and more like a government where they are trying to parent us.

Re: American Censorship Day

The internet is the last true bastion of freedom.

I will be VERY sad/angry if that is to change.

Re: American Censorship Day

Well, if the bill gets passed, those sites will pretty much be illegal, due to the content they host.

Re: American Censorship Day

I think it's good idea to prevent sites from hosting infringements, but they are going about this the wrong way. Really all government is doing is blaming the websites instead of the consumers now. Government knows it cant protrude anymore into the consumers much more. IT also pushes a ton of stress on huge corporations. Google puts it best:
"We support the bills' stated goals. Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities [and] mandates that would require monitoring of web sites."

Honestly, I really don't think this will pass. If it does, there are certain to be riots.

Re: American Censorship Day

You know this is an issue when youporn has links to a SOPA debate site.

Re: American Censorship Day

Surprising because I would imagine that porn would be difficult to persecute under SOPA, but I also wouldn't doubt there's some clause in there which they can use to try to shut the industry down. That would effect like, 90% of the internet if porn were to be eliminated.

Re: American Censorship Day

I was always under the impression that these kinds of things are always about targeting porn, or at least the socially unacceptable ones such as pedophilia or beastiality, and other sites get targeted loosely from that.
