Businesses Coalition Called Government to Close Down Illegal Sites

Business coalition claims that the COICA (Combating Online Infringement and Counter-feits Act) is necessary to defend American jobs. Besides, they refuse to believe that some authoritarian governments would use the COICA in order to block foreign opposition websites.

Since the first moment when several Senators introduced the COICA a month ago, it has been really amazing to see how many people believe that this plan is a great idea. Another step made by over 40 companies in order to push the Act into the law was a written a letter addressed to Senator Patrick Leahy, who is one of the co-sponsors of the plan calling for action before close of the 111th Congress.

Meanwhile, taking into account that majority of the political polls reveal there’ll be a turnover in elected officials after the forthcoming elections, some of them will most prob-ably benefit from the lame duck session in order to vote without concern for public opi-nion.

The representatives of the US businesses claim that the COICA has already attracted bi-partisan support in the Senate. Besides, the plan is also supported by a wide range of US businesses and labor unions, all urging the full Senate to act on this sound and wise law designed to close down the worst online services dedicated to unauthorized activity and costing US citizens their jobs.

The business coalition acknowledges in its letter that most of the illegal websites in question are hosted outside the country, but believes it is the right time to start blocking access to such sites in the United States regardless the fact that most won’t challenge the decision, while the websites may otherwise serve legal purposes.

Although the critics claim that the effort to defend online users’ human rights to speak and access legal content will be harmed, the country’s Chamber of Commerce, as well as the other business organizations, dismisses all these concerns.

“The hottest topic for discussion today is such sites’ illegal profits that steal US jobs. As usual, it is a confused argument: file-sharing services do not literally “steal” US jobs. In fact, even if the all the websites worldwide were removed, it would only cause a slight shifting of revenue from some other sectors where the file-sharers used to spend the money before, but no-one would see any magic creation of new jobs out of blue sky.

messiahx4ever avatarIf it is not profitable for them, it's declared illegal by them. I always recall in Blazing Saddles how Mel Brooks said when he told his business associates that steps needed to be taken to protect their "phony baloney" jobs and this is an exact scene from that movie. Any thing in our society, even in the global community that can't be controlled, made profit from, or corrupted to suit the needs of Korporate Amerika or any other Big Business run by men suffering from penis envy, it must be stopped or at the very least, regulated to show that some idiot in control thinks he or she knows what is best for all concerned. Yeah, there needs to be a movement all right, but not the kind I'm thinking, they just need to haul all that crap outta their systems and wake up to reality.
