You are correct, if this bill passes Canada shall suffer as well and the internet as we know it will cease to exist.

I was watching the amendments be put into place for this act, and 90% of the people involved in the making of this are over the age of 60. And one of them can even be quoted as to saying "I don't know much about the internet, but we should pass this."

Tell me how it makes any sense to have an non-tech savvy, or even technologically aware congress, making these types of decisions that can be potentially life altering for so many people?

It just tells me never to elect someone over the age of 50.

I would rather have the meeting and discussion right now. Forget about the payroll tax cut that is not what is important. What is important is the fundamental and universal free right that the World Wide Web represents and along with the Internet Network itself. I WANT A LAW IN THE CONSTITUTION guarantying the right for ALL citizens to have free and fair access to the Internet. The Internet itself is a form of free speech....would we pass laws limiting the access to Books and Educational Material???? NO we would not do that, This is not NAZI Germany. I want this bill debated now and I want it to be defeated not to "Kick the Can down the road." Your thoughts are welcomed

Hopefully a few of those Congressmen will hear from their grandkids over Xmas why this is a stupid idea.

One counterpoint: Much like with the lead up to the war in Iraq, hotboxing the issue will likely not benefit our side. Instead, it will allow dumb dumb know nothing old men who have little care for constitutional freedoms and a free Internet, but who care a lot about how to spend contributions from movie studios and record companies, to ram the bill through. Better that this thing drags out so that it can be killed as it's made increasingly clear how unpopular this thing will be.

That said, agreed with you otherwise. A constitutional protection for the free flow of information and access to the Internet unfettered by hamfisted copyright holders would be good. Added to that, we need to severely nerf the way we go about protecting copyright. Indefinite is too long a time. Repeal DMCA and allow copyright to the life of the creator, to become public domain within 20 years of their death.

i believe in spliting up these bodies into specialists. groups that know their crap and can really have an opinion on it.
