The head of the MPAA claimed that the First Amendment wasn’t intended to act as a shield for people who are stealing, no matter by what means. At the same time he ignored the fact that it would be entire sites, not just the infringing content, that are censored, as well as the fact that this move would create no new foreign revenue.
First proposed back in the early fall, the COICA was approved today by Congress to provide the Department of Justice with a guide for shutting down services that illicitly make copyrighted content available to others. Perhaps, the approval somehow related to the interim MPAA head’s op-ed, written prior to the current committee debate. There he emphasized the harmful economic effects left by some “rogue sites” on the US economy (in theory).
The MPAA head believes such sites only exist for a single purpose – to generate profit out of Internet by distributing stolen works or ideas of others. He also points out that economic impact of such sites’ activities constitutes millions of lost jobs and dollars, which is far more than profound.
However, such suggestions are quite doubtful. Of course, there are some illegal sites profiting from distribution of counterfeit goods, but the overwhelming majority of online services labeled by MPAA as “rogue” or “notorious” are not really engaged in activities involving money. Nevertheless, the MPAA has recently issued a list of the most “notorious websites”, which included such BitTorrent trackers as The Pirate Bay and IsoHunt, even though they can only profit from placing ads to be able to pay their server and hosting bills.
Besides, the MPAA’s head points at the opposition to the law claiming that the First Amendment intended to protect the rights of such online services, thus allowing them to go on using the Internet for their illicit practices. This, he believes, is wrong, because theft is always theft, no matter what means is used to commit it. In respond, the opposition argued that true criminal activity involves making profit by exploiting the hard work of others. Besides, if file-sharing harms US economy that much, then why has the entertainment industry enjoyed years of record breaking profits? May be that was the question for the Senate to ask before vote to approve the proposed COICA. It’s a pity they didn’t.

|So what dose that mean??? ExtraTorrent is soon to be no more!??! I will cancel my ISP and boycott the internet!|
|then the MPAA would have to agree to this Statement, the MPAA should be Closed down for AUTHORIZING the CREATION of Such ITEMS that would be Stolen. Because there Creating the Product and the Means. Under that Legislation it would AUTHORIZE them to do so.|
Not to mention, this means ANY third party. Department Stores included could be closed in its Wake.
THIS IS TYRANNY!!!!
Besides, are they going to STOP them from Stealing my Money @ the Theaters!?
|Now the mask is off and we now see what the real intent of the MPAA, RIAA and others.|
Censorship - plain and simple and they use the euphemistic word "copyrights" to cover up their real intentions.
They are working to control all information under the umbrella of "copyrights".. To totally control what you and I see, hear and read...
True power is the control of information...
Everyone "violates copyrights" everyday.. You copy an article to show friends. You make a link to an article of a media web site... YOU HAVE VIOLATED COPYRIGHT LAWS..
Don't believe me?
There is a blogger getting his rear end sued off from a web site because all he did was post a link on his web site to have his bloggers go and read some articles.. He isn't the only one going through this. He didn't use a "torrent" all he was doing was making information more available to you and I.. He isn't downloading anything.. YET he is being sue by the web site he posted the link to; he didn't copy the article and post it on his web blog...
The torrent issue is just a tip of an enormous political and agenda berg to control you and I.
In parting you like what you got - BUY IT..
|he he he , these sites cannot be stoped.hehe||
