Senator Separated Internet Freedom From “Bad Actors”

Senator Ron Wyden, the Oregon Democrat, testified before Senate Judiciary Committee that Congress should remember that the primary uses of the Internet are protected by the First Amendment, and therefore aren’t considered civil or criminal violations.


Last month Senator Wyden highlighted the interesting manner in which the entertainment industry has “piggybacked” on the concerns of businesses trading in physical products. He also expressed the opinion that the COICA legislation is the “wrong medicine” for combating copyright violation on the Internet. Besides, he believes that if not designed properly, the law can cause a collateral damage to US innovation, jobs, and a secure web.

During the recent hearing called “Targeting Websites Dedicated To Stealing American Intellectual Property”, some Senators supported the COICA legislation, but Senator Wyden made clear his opposition, saying that although the goal of fighting piracy is a noble one, the Congress shouldn’t forget that primary uses of the web are activities that are protected by the First Amendment. The same idea was earlier voiced by the Center for Democracy and Technology, which pointed out that the First Amendment only allows site seizure in the rarest occasions. This should be particularly true for cases when the domain name seizures also block lawful content in the process.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation also believes that such services as ZeroPaid or pirate-party.us, which discuss and advocate for peer-to-peer technology, largely contain news and political speech. However, they also link to software and data designed for file-sharing, so the court could well decide that copyright violation is their major purpose, ruling to take the whole websites offline. Such result is fundamentally contradictory to freedom of speech.

So, Senator Wyden said that although it’s important that the Internet should be protected from the “bad actors,” the freedoms of billions consumers can’t be sacrificed for the purpose of easing that protection. He also pointed out that it’s not the first time that the entertainment industry has raised concerns about a threat that the new technology poses to its business model. It was the same with the advent of recorded music, the VCR, and the audio cassette, but the industry did manage to benefit from the new technology at the time, so it can do that now, too.
