Censorship? HELL NO!

Just for the record, yes, my own PC is still busted.

This has been going around for a bit, and I feel like I should spread the word, too. It seems like the american government is trying to take action into censoring the internet.

Quoting from the website you can access by clicking on that black banner:

Website Blocking
The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users
It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet
Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn’t be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

What does this mean in practical terms? Internet reviewers, cover musicians, among others, will have their websites closed. I’m sure NONE of us will want that. So, if your brain cells are still functioning, you’re gonna click that black banner up there, and sign the damn petition! And spread it around, the more the merrier!

Seeya next time!… SIGN THAT THING!
