MPAA Threatened Politicians Not Supporting SOPA

The recent move of MPAA’s CEO Chris Dodd looks like an act of desperation. Indeed, it followed numerous protests against proposed anti-piracy bills and lawmakers’ drop of support for them. Dodd showed his true face at Fox News, saying that people who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support should realize that the entertainment industry is now watching carefully who is going to stand up for them when it is about their job.

Nevertheless, this has been a known fact, which was even supported by anonymous comments from the industry members promising to stop contributing to Obama. At the same time, this lack of tact from the MPAA’s CEO may prove to be deadly for his future on that position. It seemed that he didn’t realize that the protests weren’t because of the content of the legislation, but because of the corruption. So going on national news and threatening politicians you “own” wasn’t a very wise step, with the public being already on fire.

It became clear that the Motion Picture Association of America doesn’t need a DC insider. Instead, it needs a reformer, someone who would be able to help the movie industry connect with the new market place – someone who clearly understands the essence of the web and can help the studios move forward.

In response, Public Knowledge has issued an incredible statement indicating how far Hollywood’s hypocrisy went and criticized Dodd’s threats. The outfit welcomed constructive dialog with everyone from all involved sectors about the questions over copyright, the state of the entertainment industry and related concerns. The list includes Internet security experts, web engineers, venture capitalists, musicians, businessmen, human rights advocates, professors, consumers and other outfits that had been shut out of the process for those acts.

Meanwhile, the industry experts suggested that if the Motion Picture Association of America was really concerned about the jobs of truck drivers and others in its industry, it could have brought its overseas filming back to the United States and created more jobs. The MPAA could have stopped holding states hostage for millions of dollars in subsidies that strained state budgets simply couldn’t afford, at the same time pushing special legislation through state legislatures. Public Knowledge pointed out that while such things happen, discussions could take place.

No avatarPutting it simply and bluntly, bribery, coercion, blackmail and very deep-rooted corruption now exist in the very highest levels of office in the USA, until Barack Obama makes it plain that such practices are not acceptable and will be rooted out in any level of USA politics. Until such time, any politician standing for office will be viewed as totally untrustworthy and bribed to the hilt!

As for the action against MegaUpload with the FBI coordinating action in a foreign country on foreign soil, way beyond their jurisdiction or anything we have ever seen before:-

They take out millions of legitimate files by millions of legitimate MegaUpload users, to take down some pirate files that continue to be freely available elsewhere. Justice. Liberty and Human Decency seems to be dead in the water in 2012... All because the FBI put on Jack Boots. I thought two world wars had killed this sort of conduct stone dead, or are the FBI secretly planning to bring back gas chambers? As for New Zealand, I had thought before this that they were a bastion of common sense and pro liberty, but now New Zealand's reputation sucks real big-time world-wide!

Take away freedoms and before you know it we will have full-scale censorship of the internet. Once the mechanisms are in place, who knows how they will be used in the future. We must protect our internet freedom at all costs. If the FBI and American authorities declare war on parts of the internet, every free citizen in the US and around the world must act to defend our freedom and freedom of speech. It's a short walk from censorship to denying any active free speech.

We are talking mind police here, who don't like us even expressing our own thoughts, let alone having freedom of action on the internet. The politicians say one thing when behind the scenes they are trying to dictate almost every aspect of our lives and brainwash us stupid.

Onyx521 avatarchazzo125, yes make it plain and protect the internet by any means necessary. It is time for the people to take back the power from these clowns. The majority of politicians are bout and paid for, but we ain't buyin' it. It is time for total reform when it comes to politics. Chazzo, I see you're ready and there are an army of us behind you and beside you.
