    I don’t know whats going on or what, but I’m hearing that the government is wanting to track our every move on the internet?! Isn’t that invasion of privacy? I don’t understand what the fuss is about being able to download songs for personal use you can get cd’s at the library for free are they going to go after them too? we are able to record off the radio also are the going to take away our radio also? Where will it end? I think this bill is just wrong and unfair and I don’t see the point if we are using it for pursonal use only and not selling it.

    “I don’t understand what the fuss is about being able to download songs for personal use you can get cd’s at the library for free are they going to go after them too?”

    according to this bill, if the holder of the copyright wants it removed then yes, it will be removed.

    You make some excellent points in your argument, but there are some logical holes.

    1. The government can (and is) already tracking our every move. Not to mention Facebook, Google, our mobile phone providers, internet service providers, hackers, and others.
    2. CDs at the library. Good point.
    3. Radio Recording. Good point, but do people still do that? What do they use to record the music?

    The question is do we believe in protecting intellectual property, and how do we do it? I am pretty sure that if you had an invention or idea, and someone else used that idea to make money off of it you would sue them. In our modern day it is very difficult to protect intellectual property because our technological advances coupled with our access to the technology (ie. computers). If people use/steal your idea and share it with others you will not be compensated. Potentially millions of people could benefit from your idea, and you wouldn’t receive a penny from it. Now THAT is wrong and unfair.

    This bill sounds regulatory but is another lawyer game and only protects those who purchase “copyrites” as required in §411

    What a NOT funny f’ing joke.

    Copyrite is a backwards American law that I have called unconstitutional in United States Courts for over three years. The appeal is pending to be dismissed in order to allow search engines to continue to traffic in my nude art to anonymous people who could be minors. I also demand the FCC to regulate wire communications as required by law since 1934.

    Recording from an FM station will be made much more difficult when the system is “upgraded” to digital and analog stations are “phased out”. It might be legal to record from the radio, but it will be darn near impossible to do so in the near future.

    actually, every signal intended for human ears eventually becomes an analog signal. after it leaves the device into a wire leading to a speaker or headphones it becomes as recordable as any old school radio signal.

    Intellectual property (IP) was invented by staists in furtherance of crony capitalism. IP is really a ridiculous idea if you think about it. I highly recommend this book to those interested in reading more on the subject http://mises.org/books/against.pdf

    The “natural rights” rational v “utilitarian rights” rational are mutually exclusive rationals for IP that is very obvious but apparently was over N. Stephan Kinsella’s logical abilities? This may have came from the incorrect claim on page fifteen.

    “Only A has the right to copy the book (hence, ‘copyright’”

    N. Stephan Kinsella therein reveals a fundamental logical error. There are no “natural rights” involved whatsoever in United States copy[]right or IP laws. The rite of printing a book was initially called a “right” when Queen Anne allowed one printer to control all printing unless another party was given permission to print. The first copyrite statute in about 1710 or Statute of Anne. I agree with the claim that a personal right can not last longer than a person lives.

    I could understand who someone could IP as far as exact copies of movies, music, movies and books go. But, when it comes to someone incorporating a part of another person’s IP in their own original work like remixes of songs or even something more mundane like a mother posting a video of their child dancing to a song on you tube civil or criminal penalties for those actions are simply indefensible. Patents on drugs or chemicals are completely ridiculous. Patenting a chemical compound is like patenting the color blue or the process of making a sandwich. Patents like that only hurt consumers. The only reason drug companies need patents to earn crazy profits is the oppressive over-regulation perpetrated by the FDA. If it wasn’t for the ridiculous drug regulations healthcare would be much cheaper too.

    We will never be ready for Internet censorship. This bill is overly broad, and therefore it is too ridiculous. It is very important that you should oppose this bill and save the Internet!

    Internet censorship has been required by law since 1934 but has not been done by a free pornography loving United States. The end of the pornternet is at hand. Appeal Brief
