To be honest the son sounds like he has serious emotional issues and the next Menendez brother if he's shaking his dad awake in anger and yelling at him.

His son should shake him awake in anger again for saying "It is about safety for consumers, and it's about jobs for American workers and American families."

It's not about any of those things and these kinds of bills aren't going to help with those things. It's just empty political grandstanding hoping it might be more popular if it helps American jobs and families.

Pretty much. This whole "it's about jobs and families" is empty political verbiage that they say about any bill they're trying to push through the system. Meantime, they point to a study that shows what percentage of industries "depend" on intellectual property and then pretend that without one of these bills, those industries will somehow collapse and everyone employed by those industries will be out of jobs. Please.

Just as ridiculous as counting how many copies of a piece of software are downloaded through some torrent program and then pretending each of those is a lost sale and "OMG billions of dollars are being lost to pirating." Shit don't work that way.

In that case....nobody in DC should be voting on anything. They accept bribes (yes, that's exactly what they collect from special interest groups) so they don't have to read and understand the bills they vote on. They simply vote based on who's giving them the bigger bribe.

Never thought I'd agree with Bieber, but he's got it right in this one. The whole point of copyright was to promote new ideas with the fair use clause. These guys didn't understand a thing about why copyright was implemented in the first place.

Just because the U.S government is practically s**tting itself, doesn't mean they have to take down the rest of the world with them. This is ridiculous. A law/bill in the U.S shouldn't significantly affect other countries that obviously have different laws and customs for very obvious reasons.

Who the hell do they think they are, THEY don't own the goddamn internet. Let alone control the rest of what the world does for their own elaborate benefits.

Music and movie industries need to evolve. It's way overdue now. They can't keep distributing their products in the exact same way they did in the 19th and 20th century. People have discovered new and better ways to enjoy their entertainment. The industries need to evolve and adapt around these new ways, not forbid. They can't expect things to stay the same forever...
