Yes I know this is sad because despite what this Bill says in some form they all want this to pass because how this states to piracy, but like what those have been saying that go against this bill form they believe this is a rush because if this was passes over night which it won't because it has to go to the house of senators to be debated about again and voted there again then off to the president. But if this is made over night the Attorney General would have a very powerful rights to tare down what you have and any site that anyone that would make one complaint about. Just think about it, if you put something up on a site anyone not just a movie or music producer can make a complaint and then your right on the internet is taking from you even the site would be shut down. You would be looking at prison time 3 times the amount of value that is made to be put out in public. So one movie you DLed say it took $500,000 to make three times of that would 1.5 million which is BS. Read the whole Bill here: http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/pdf/112hr3261.pdf
Anyways if this is Passed the internet we know it will be shut down, because of any speculation on anything from someone not liking you would put you close to prison or pay out the rest of your life. Now the only thing that does seem ridiculous is that what one of the chairman has said. That this must be taking to court before the AG(Attorney General) says anything because if any Judge with the right sense of mind would be judgmental against this and wouldn't dare to throw someone in prison just doing a petty theft but to this Bill that will not happen. You and that site will be shut down, the FBI would come to your house take your computer and scan through it and if anything that shows you have or are doing so to have any copyright material you go straight to jail and off to prison. It is like you have murdered someone and kept it a secret. That is how screwed up this bill is and sadly the motions that are trying to amend points of this bill is not being changed. I can't say if this bill will be a law, but it will be going off to it next destination. It is going to do so because how this is focused on piracy and for anyone doing or Downloading any form of material that is piracy or have anything of a sort is basically looking at going away for a long time and alot of sites will be shut down. I know I am making it sound like this has passed already but I am just clarifying what this bill is about. The only thing that I know needs to be looked at is how for the AG to catch this stuff over the internet by shutting off part of the DNS which would be screwing up the internet protocols. If this is passed overnight I fear the internet would be shut down entirely for awhile to figure out how to have control over this. It is sad. This is another Hearing going on early today on FBI oversight that goes on with this that was a hour before this, it was on about how the FBI deals with cyber crime and what is being done and how can this be stopped overnight. It is scarey what is going on but to be prepared for this it is best to start doing family time or your life is fucked.
I am still watching and will do all I can to keep you guys updated. This is against freedom of speech but to these people it is not because once you steal you are a criminal.
Updated: HA, they just got done debating about the IP address to any site and how easy it is to connect to. A chairman stated "a 10 year old can do this", sadly in away it is possible. They want to amend in to even take full control on IP addresses. We are screwed if this is Passed.
Update: The committee is closed for the night and they debated about alot of things that deal with the handling how some one will be processed if found guilty with copyright material. Alot was said and not much was amended so this bill is going to be pushed but more will be debated about this tomorrow.
