I don't see what being silent has to do with piracy, but OK. Yeah, terrifying.

Again, not sure what that has to do with piracy, but sure. Free speech is good.

SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/CISPA doesn't want us to express our thoughts, so it will be more easy for them to control us. Media are part of the plan too. The only media you can trust is Internet and they want to bring it down now.

Looks like the government have given pass to something that will allow the government to spy on us!

It's similar to soap in my opinion


It's not quite like soap, not at all.

It would be great to read the article and understand it as it is being blown out of proportion.

People have a misconception that they are safe now on the net and that nothing is monitored. Every ISP keeps
logs of activity - They don't spy or single out a particular person, but they do have logs, they have to, it's always been. This will require a longer time span for the logs that ISPs already had, and about social media, web mail etc, all activity was traceable anyway. When authority needs to trace someone from their e-mail or blog post or social media, they could access that information with the warrant to do so.

So nothing new here, only now it is made public and most people THOUGHT that nothing was logged before when it was all along.

So if you have nothing to hide and not committing a crime online or you are not wanted, then you have nothing to worry about, you should read the article again and see exactly what type of person is targeted. It has nothing to do with silencing people or free speech. I probably now triggered several alarms with key words I used in this post lol !

They can catch more criminals through webmail, social media, etc.... and most people get caught not because of monitoring but because of complaints.

So if you accidently trip the alarm with key words - well no worries, they will come get ya at 6:45 AM whilst you are sleeping or taking a shower (keep your clothes nearby just in case) and you can claim they got the wrong guy ! :D Like I said, if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. There are bloody creeps roaming the net and so much scams and crime online, sometimes one has to wonder ...... ;)

Throughout history, people have stood by doing nothing, allowing the authorities to grab more power. They thought, "I'm not a criminal. What do I have to fear? "

Then one day, the authorities arrived at their door to take them away.

They objected... but the authorities told them "Don't worry...if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear. Come with us."

Like I said, if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

The majority of people have something to hide, even if it is insignificant and perfectly legal. An example is in the move legal blond where the girl won't tell her group of attorneys about what the lady who was being arrested was doing because her career would be ruined and stilled ended up convicting the right person. Nobody would've been sent to jail, she just was getting surgery (that is perfectly legal, but not smart, but legal).

Oh no, not the banning laws again. <_</>
Honestly at first it was 'exciting' during the SOPA protests.
It was like the battle of the world!
Then when ACTA came it which was a little boring (not as exciting as SOPA/PIPA events)
Now these new laws are becoming a really big pain in the ass.

So what is this ITU now again? International Telecommunication Union?
The name already sounds threatening.

You gotta be kiddin me! :[|
as experimentor said, sopa was like war of the worlds. But now we already know what will happen, there is no challenge like there was with sopa. During the sopa era you could feel the world uniting, gathering for one cause. But these new laws will never be allowed to succed.

Agreed. The reason I bumped this anyway was because I wanted to keep you informed. It won't pass. But remember. The goverments will not stop until they reach their goal. Future laws will come.
