welp Trumps Cronies are at it again repealing more obama era laws this time it hits home on the net
now this doesn't deal with the DMCA it deals with US ISP's selling personal information with out the user's consent
"
Senate lawmakers voted Thursday to repeal a historic set of rules aimed at protecting consumers' online data from their own Internet providers, in a move that could make it easier for broadband companies to sell and share their customers' usage information for advertising purposes.

The rules, which prohibit providers from abusing the data they gather on their customers as they browse the Web on cellphones and computers, were approved last year over objections from Republicans who argued the regulations went too far.

U.S. senators voted 50 to 48 to approve a joint resolution from Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) that would prevent the Federal Communications Commission's privacy rules from going into effect. The resolution also would bar the FCC from ever enacting similar consumer protections. It now heads to the House."

That being said the US's future looks bleaker by the week I can only imagine if they strenthing the DMCA to remove the $250,000 fine cap for piracy and more jail time

While I appreciate this and agree it's BS, this should probably go into General Offtopic rather than USN

How this guy got voted in, is beyond me. I really doubt he will make it pass 4 years, he barely made it this time.

How can you have such a shitty opinion is beyond me.
How did you last 4 years of life?

It looks better. One stupid repeal doesn't change what great things Trump has done and will do to the country.
And that stupid judge blocking his immigration ban was stupid. People should stop trying to take out a DEMOCRATICALLY elected president.

Honestly, both of them shouldn't have even gotten that far, let alone be president. Rather he was actually involved with this or not, it seems like something he would do and be for.

How did you get this idea? I genuinely want to know. Personally, I think both candidates were trash. However, Trump was the lesser of the two. If he really wants to destroy our privacy and everything he promised to protect? You can bet he won't make it 4 years.

What exactly HAS he done?...

Yeah, that democratically elected leader that received over 1 million fewer votes than his opponent!

Also you DO realize that judges swear an oath to uphold the Constitution when presiding, right? They're not just there to serve sentences, they keep our government in check

NO THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO with the dMCA if you read it allows internet providers to profit off of web sites you visit ect to advertisers meaning you'll see a lot more ads TOR/VPN is useless for this (unless you run it 24/7 on an always on conection

You mean prior to this, we could've trusted what our ISP and other government agencies did with our data? Sorry, but this doesn't really change a damn thing, they were spying and gathering information before so called privacy laws were in place. And to the government watching everything we do, etc etc, I say, "screw off and I hope you read this". :creep:


Oh and before someone says the platitude, "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear", is so 1984 lol.

I shouldn't be surprised this went intro Trump stuff. I don't like the bozo, but this is specifically a Senate GOP caused thing. Fire up the VPN more I guess.

Time to start a VPN business.

VPNs are shit due to man in the middle issues. See https://tails.boum.org/support/faq/index.en.html#index21h2 which in short goes over the big issues with them.
