Coming this summer the biggest spy program of the internet ever

This won't be the government spying on you it will be your own internet service provider. It's called the "six strike plan", http://www.pcworld.com/article/235253/copyright_cops_team_with_isps_to_crack_down_on_music_movie_pirates.html?tk=rel_news http://www.pcworld.com/article/235261/isps_fight_piracy_meet_the_six_strikes.html Your bandwidth will be reduced to a crawl if you are found in repeated violation of sharing or downloading "copyright" material. What defines copyright material? That's the problem even if you download a video about symbolism in a song/movie or a clip from a news channel that should fall under the "fair use act" you can still find yourself in hot water over it. But to be fair you have the right to argue your case at the cost of $35 for each offense (non refundable). Still not satisfied with the outcome, than you have the right to get a lawyer and go to court over it. Basically you are now guilty until you prove your innocents and the cost of it is on you.

I haven't heard of this, but I have heard of similar laws being put out there, but nothing actually enacted. I wonder who is policing this if it is done by the ISP than they could use this to make enormous profits while hurting their customers. This could also create a black market for ISP's to pop up. On a similar note I saw that the GOP is using Facebook in the next election to get information on their supporters, and their friends. I don't know if you saw this, and I am not sure if democrats are doing the same thing, but I wouldn't want a political party to know this stuff: "When a user “authorizes” the RNC app - you have to authorize Spotify to tap into your Facebook account before listening to Lady Gaga or Radiohead, for instance - the party is able to access the user’s email address, phone number, religion and gender along with the “friends” in his or her social network." “The data we are going to get, it’s going to be much better than we ever had in the past,” said RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski. This is just scary what you can do on Facebook!!!

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2008/11/19/barack-obama-and-the-facebook-election It is a well known fact that Obama used the social network of Facebook (and others) to win the 2008 election. He's got even more tools in this one, as Rollo points out Facebook has become a network of fake identities. I friended one from the 'other' side, one of the many aliases of Obama, now that I think about it, maybe I should 'unfriend' this guy, he may be one of the liberal spies.

The question of copyright is very hot right.If you start to judge you for downloaded video or article can not deal with all offenders.Everyone who uses the Internet can be accused of copyright infringement.The Internet has much information and can not be protected from copying or downloading.
