I heard america has this Internet Blacklist Legislation to the point even mozilla put in their front page about going against it. They said Your favorite websites both inside and outside the US could be blocked based on an infringement claim and stuff like that. Apparently this is a bigger issue than I thought it was, according to this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDX8Lyl16Qs...player_embedded
We talked about it in the IRC:
<@kentona> not even TPB
<@kentona> YOUTUBE could be banned
<Yuu> oh god yes
<Clyve> That's true.
<@kentona> because it contains content that infringes on media rights
<Nemo> like, a tonne of it
<@kentona> RMN could be banned
<Nemo> but there's always VEVO
<@kentona> Facebook could be banned
<@kentona> basically any site that allows users to post content
<@kentona> so...basically THE INTERNET
<@kentona> so yeah
<Clyve> Yeah, f*!@ those anus chews.
<@kentona> most everyone is against it except for media execs in the usa
So like yeah. I thought I should let you guys know about it too~
Everyone in twitter is tweeting about it.
