Senator Called For Web Filtering But Supported Net Neutrality

Senator Called For Web Filtering But Supported Net Neutrality

Senator Al Franken (D-MN) announced he was for Net Neutrality. Therefore, he is going to defend speech from being controlled by interests of huge corporations. However, he also said that the new controversial Combating Online Infringement & Counterfeits Act is still necessary to enforce in order to protect interests of film studios and broadcasters.


Senator Al Franken is one of the oddest supporters of the highly discussed COICA legislation thanks to his liberal political leanings. He is also known for his ardent support for Net Neutrality. He claimed that people were getting more and more data online, which would mean that the speech is about to be controlled by global corporate interests. This is the reason why Senator calls it the First Amendment issue of our time, but it’s still very odd. While Al Franken is such a vocal defender of free speech on the Internet, he still strongly believes that censoring the speech is needed to protect interests of entertainment industry! Senator described the COICA legislation as the one related to stealing copyrighted content and selling counterfeit products, which leads to billions of dollars in theft.

Perhaps the answer to his odd position is the fact that he belongs to such unions as the Screen Actors and the Directors Guilds, or the US Federation of TV and Radio Artists. Apparently, his membership in those organizations would make his stands to gain financially in case the discussed legislation passes, and it is already clouding Senator’s ability to understand the larger picture of what the new copyright law would mean for worldwide community. All he sees is the threat for the jobs of writers and producers. Senator Franken points out that when they can steal all this creative content, it changes the entire business model of a film, as it no longer needs the technicians and the crew people, for example. The only problem is that Senator wrongfully finds the new law to be useful to protect outdated business models employed by entertainment industry. Aside from this delusion, he also suffers from another one, somehow supporting Net Neutrality and COICA at the same time. Another step, and he will probably understand that the outdated business models aren’t worth protecting. Instead, developing new ones are supposed to be more efficient.
