The Philippine government is trying to pass a law that’s trying to control the internet only because one of the senators refused to admit that he fucked up, twice. Basically taking away internet freedom for my country. We helped out when you had your ACTA, PIPA and SOPA problems, now we’re asking you guys to return the favor.
there’s a petition up and we need a shit ton of signatures
I agree completely. You can’t punish someone for something that was never clearly outlined in the first place.
But the fight’s not over. If you haven’t signed you, go here to learn more and sign. Get this around and keep your followers informed. This is insane and it’s happening.
Take Action: ISPs Selling Out Customers, Pushing Backdoor SOPA
They’re selling us out. Just weeks after Internet users from across the globe came together to to beat SOPA, the major ISPs are cutting a deal with Big Content to restrict web access for users who are accused of piracy.
It’ll do much of the dirty work we were able to prevent when we took down SOPA, this time by restricting certain Americans’ access to the WHOLE Internet.
The details are fuzzy, but the head of the Recording Industry Association of America’s bragged this week that ISPs will start policing copyright by July of this year. Here’s RT’s take:
Some of the biggest Internet service providers in America plan to adopt policies that will punish customers for copyright infringement, and one of the top trade groups in the music biz announced this week that it could begin as soon as this summer….
RIAA CEO Cary Sherman was one of the guest speakers among a New York panel this week and he confirmed that, at this rate, some of the most powerful Internet providers in America should have their new policies on the books by July 12, 2012.
The ISPs are poised to start treating their customers like criminals, restricting their access to the Internet. And they’re cutting us off at the knees just as we’ve begun to force a new conversation about Internet freedom and copyright law.
