Chamber of Commerce Welcomed Internet Censorship Approval

US Chamber of Commerce applauded a “major step” towards protecting US jobs and customers, while continuing to ignore the fact that COICA won’t actually create any revenue from US customers, but only shift the cash flow from another sector of economy.

Country’s Senate’s Committee on the Judiciary had recently approved the controversial copyright legislation called COICA by unanimous vote, which caused the applauses of the Chamber of Commerce. After the vote the latter said that the Senate’s action on legislation was a major step forward protecting national customers and jobs. Meanwhile, it’s not clear how movie industry managed to enjoy record breaking profits like a 30% increase in worldwide ticket sales over the last 5 years if all those “rogue websites” were really stealing US jobs.

On the opposite, the critics are sure that the COICA can hardly solve any of the industry’s problems. Filtering peer-to-peer websites offering copyrighted content will not capture new revenue. First of all, the operators of such sites usually don’t profit from letting people share files for free. Second, the new legislation will only be able to siphon revenue from American industries where people currently spend money that would otherwise be spent on paying for copyrighted content.

Aside from welcoming the new law, the Chamber of Commerce now keeps using fear in order to pressure Congress to enforce it. It points out that the current vote comes as the country’s citizens are ready to go online for holiday shopping in record numbers. This means that the COICA should necessarily be enacted to help protect consumers from online predators, disguising their websites to look legal. Those site operators are actually selling very “dangerous fakes” that pose serious health and safety risks. Besides, they can also steal people’s identities and infect their PCs with malware.

The question is what exact kind of “dangerous fakes” are consumers purchasing online for the holiday season, and how many of them? Looks like an obvious ruse from the Chamber to scare the officials into considering urgent action no matter the costs. Choice of the end covers choice of the means.

Actually, the Chamber of Commerce is used to making outlandish claims – for example, a couple years ago it compared people fighting for reform of copyright to Marxists.

menahunie avatarUS Chamber of Commerce is nothing more than a groups of "businesses"; a bunch of self centered pukes who will do anything for a dollar. They are and never will be for you and I. They are strictly business and what does small businesses have to do with the internet and copyright issues - NONE. The only "businesses" that have a sole interest in the internet and "copyrights" is RIAA and MPAA..

KLOKWORX avatarthats the new thing with hackers and scam artists now. the biggest fakes are the auction sites that sell things for cheap. you may be the highest bidder at a low price, but then there automated bidders bid at the last second to a huge bid then you have to bid 2x as much as the product is worth. and most of the time you dont get what you bought. very intelligent scripting imo
