Haaa the US governvent thinks that they own the internet ,fail
Pishing? Lol spelling failure, this proves it's fake.
Stupid American politicians that think they own the world (and the Internet).
At least SOPA is dead. (Though PIPA is still a threat )
actually pipa is dead, new appearent threat is OPEN bill which stands for Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade (can read on it on wikipedia) which is the alternative bill to pipa and backed by google and facebook at least as the wikipedia article mentions
Why Google, why???
I hope it's at least better than SOPA+PIPA.
Criticizing without finding out about it first. Real smart.
Well, they support it because the main goal of the bill is, from the article, "The OPEN Act seeks to stop transfers of money to foreign websites whose primary purpose is piracy or counterfeiting." So it's not trying to take down the petty things SOPA was trying to, but rather to remove Piracy down from the websites to which this could pertain to by blocking US access to them. The guys who made this even dislike SOPA. This not only helps internet businesses but also against counterfeiting. They also DO NOT think that blocking IP's are a good idea.
Yes, it is real smart .
Sound OK compared to PIPA I suppose...
That actually sounds like a reasonable idea.
OPEN was backed as a more-reasonable alternative to some of the measures proposed in PIPA, SOPA and ACTA. While it still isn't great, it's far better than the alternative.
...that said, ACTA still exists.
So would you get access to old files on the site ?
I'm pretty sure the crackdown, while in part being because it hosted pirated material, was also because of money laundering.
Also, it's contradictory to say American politicians are evil or something and then bring up SOPA since it was American politicians who killed the bill. If anything it proves that American government is for the people, by the people, since people didn't want the bill to pass.
What a foolish thing to say. It took a blackout of important sites in order to move anything along. When people were writing their congress folks before the blackout, they didn't care. They are not for the "people". They are for the corporations because they get their money from them. Thats what you get for only having to options to vote for. Well i don't care, i don't plan on being an American anytime soon anyway, so i'm glad that's your problem and not mine.
The US government is anything but for the people. I'm not going to say that every single one (politicians in washington) of them is bad but they far outway the good ones that are still around there.
To me anything that censors the web is a BAD idea. The fact that a few of us think that OPEN isn't "That Bad" means they are already changing our minds on it. If we give them an inch they will take a mile, hold the line we have and keep the internet 100% open
This is exactly right.
i been told that new site is a phishing site
I'm pretty sure the IP address is fake/phishing. However, I have seen one site that claims it can find downloads for all old MegaUpload content over usenet, but I probably can't link it here. Even if I could, I don't want to, seeing as I am against piracy. I haven't tried it (don't have a usenet account, nor any desire to download anything from MegaUpload), so I don't even know if it works.
You're exactly right! This government is only out to protect the money hungry corporations and any censorship of the internet will not help us in any way, shape or form.
We need to continue the blockade of any censoring bill or act, no matter what they say these bills are not in place to do what they claim.
These people will try to pass anything if it will slowly allow them to sneak in other things in the end.
When we start to accept this kind of thing we will begin to accept other things that are not right.
Yes, open web for everyone, let's let child porn and all manner of things illegal across the entire web! Let's let all those phishing and info stealing sites grow and grow! Let's let scams keep going!
Seriously, web censorship is something needed. We have it in real life and people wouldn't argue about a lot of our real life censorship, why is the web exempt?
You knew exactly what I meant, no need to try making something out of it that it's not.
These bills are put into place to combat piracy, not child porn or other illegalities. Otherwise those things would have been gone long ago.
