    …With the passage of legislation censoring the Internet, the battle to stop the barbarian at the gate has only just begun. The purveyors of offensive material will continue their quest to make their material available; in all likelihood the CDA will prove to only be a minor inconvenience. The opponents of on-line censorship have moved on to the next battle field, the court room.(193) The only one leaving the field of battle will be Senator Exon, who announced, prior to introducing his CDA, that he would be among the stampede of Democrats retiring from the Senate this year…

    … On June 11, 1996, a three-judge panel in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania found that the Communications Decency Act violated the First Amendment of the United States Constitution…

    Let’s just face it. Our forefathers did not want this country to be a dictatorship, monarchy, or communist run government. Sometimes I feel this is what it is. Sooner or later we will be controlled on everything we want to do, safe or not, example: this. This is expressing how we feel and what we feel about games, gaming, TV, internet and a whole bunch of things, and yet they do not realize that if they shut it off, they will not be able to use it either. Sooner or later it will be a mixture of a monarchy and a dictatorship. I am not encouraging it, I am simply stating what I FEEL!

    With SOPA Shelved, Congress Readies its Next Attack on the Internet

    One of the things that became clear in Congress’ push to pass Hollywood’s web censorship bills is that powerful corporations and the federal government do not want the rule of law to apply on the internet. The attitude that our basic freedoms and legal protections are somehow not valid on the internet is partly just the kind of reaction you would expect from entrenched powers whenever new technologies emerge, but it’s also a response to the particular peer-to-peer features of the internet that threaten to make their key sources of power — control of information flow — less relevant.

    The Online-Piracy Mess: How Chris Dodd and Hollywood blew it with SOPA

    A cool $1.5 million a year.

    That’s what the Motion Picture Association of America is reportedly paying Connecticut’s formerU.S. Sen. Chris Doddto slide an anti-Internet-piracy bill through Congress. His insider knowledge, his old-fashioned liberal credentials, and his winning smile were supposed to make it all so very easy.

    Except that Dodd and the MPAA and the hoard of other lobbyists stroking this issue for them now appear to be drowning beneath a tidal wave of Internet opposition. And just maybe Dodd’s sweet salary might have been better spent on someone more in tune with 21st Century technology issues than old-fashioned congressional politics…

    …Dodd isn’t backing away or admitting that he might be to blame for underestimating Internet opposition or the technological fallout from what he and the MPAA have been trying to get through Congress.

    For one thing, he points out that he is forbidden from personally lobbying members of Congress until January 2013. But there’s little doubt that he was hired to orchestrate the MPAA’s lobbying effort and to be the face of the SOPA campaign…

    New Iran internet blocking

    Some days ago the Iranian government has ramped up censorship in three ways: deep packet inspection (dpi) of SSL traffic, selective blocking of IP Address and TCP port combinations, and some keyword filtering.

    Considering the Network as the radar detector of the Multitude

    …The difference between Twitter feeds about speed traps and Wikileaks dumps of the government’s classified interoffice memoranda is just one of degree. Without secrets, government must either persuade the populace of its legitimacy, or abandon legitimacy for force of arms. We can expect a decade or two of efforts by governments and other powers (corporations, cartels, and perhaps copyright holders) to try to use law (and force) to prevent the popular use of the network to expose institutional secrets, and it seems certain they will all inevitably fail. Trying to control the use of communications networks is like trying to exterminate the rhizome under your lawn. (Ironic, perhaps, that a technology designed by the military-industrial complex to ensure viable communications in the event of nuclear attack ends up appropriated by the people and able to withstand attack by its creator.) …

    In case President Obama chooses to bring back SOPA, we need to stop it. Please sign this petition to demand that Obama drop all support for Internet censorship (such as SOPA):

    As a wedding photographer I have a vested interest in stopping online piracy. My images are routinely taken and used without my permission. However, I I think SOPA goes WAY too far.
