Dazzling protest movement against S.978

October 26, 2011 by

S.978 is truly terrible legislation. It makes posting anything under IP protection a felony. As protest organizations point out, this could make Justin Beiber a jail bird.

Before you cheer (and I’m telling you, that kid has got amazing talent!), consider that this would have a chilling effect to the point that every sector of the wwww might be fall under total state control and effectively shut down.

The movement being organized against it has so far been extremely effective in drawing attention to its point of view.

In Argentina the owners of a company that runs a website have been jailed after being fined US$60,000 a few months ago for allowing copyright material to be published.
