US Copyright Law Claimed Getting Growing Support

U.S. Chamber of Commerce claims that there’s “growing” support for the new legislation called COICA across a range of US companies and labor unions. However, the Chamber doesn’t mention that businesses supporting the law only care about the bottom line, while the unions believe that filtering the web can create new jobs.


The Chamber of Commerce goes on in its effort to prevent American citizens from accessing illegal websites engaged in unauthorized activities of different kinds and hurting the country’s businesses as well as costing citizens their jobs.

The bill named “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeit Act” was introduced just several weeks ago, suggesting to give the Department of Justice the instruments necessary for tracking and closing down online services dedicated to providing access to illegal downloads.

However, the legislation has become controversial from the very beginning, with critics immediately blasting it for being equal to unauthorized online censorship. For example, the Center for Democracy and Technology says that the attempt to protect the rights of Internet users to access legal material hosted online can be also harmed. At the same time, the EFF was warning that the legislation could have quite a chilling effect on freedom of online speech, with the list of targets including Rapidshare, SoundCloud and news websites dedicated to digital piracy. It even claimed that if this bill had been passed a decade ago, YouTube might not exist now.

In respond, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says that such claim is false, and highlighted the importance of such action against infringers who can kill and whose illegal profits steal US jobs. All in all, it seems like instead of creating new sources of revenue and jobs the legislation could only achieve their shift from other sectors of the economy.

The critics’ concerns don’t seem to matter to the government that claims it is necessary to go after the worst online infringers, believing that the legislation will only grow stronger when more alarming statistics emerge related to harm and dangers of illegal websites. In fact, the main problem is that rights owners confuse BitTorrent trackers with websites selling fake pharmaceuticals, calling them services equally hurting consumers.

fusseltier avatarthats fine for the US and fortunately the US doesn't own the internet and can not legislate it.
as long as there are other countries that allow the servers to operate, the US can not do anything to them.
in some countries downloading is legal, only uploading is illegal.
