Default Anti piracy law

1> If the Us government pass this law and they are going to pass it in two or three days, all the piracy sites will be banned and the dangerous thing is the Congress is involving Social networks sites too in to this bill.

2> And my second point of view this is that all those sites which are hosted in US and gives quite good revenue to US government all of those sites can change their hosting to other countries because of this law.

Is there US government is thinking about this money loss.

"The OPEN Act secures two fundamental principles. First, Americans have a right to benefit from what they've created. And second, Americans have a right to an open internet. Our duty is to protect these rights. That's why congressional Republicans and Democrats came together to write the OPEN Act."

A reasonable bill that aims for both?

Seems like a better idea, but it has it's flaws. But it does prove one thing, the MPAA and RIAA don't give a crap about due process they would rather just be able to control the internet and not have to deal with actually defending their copyright and proving that others are actually stealing from them.

So, PIPA hearing was moved, SOPA has now been shelved and finally, ESA has dropped its support. They might still come back, but for now, its over.

Thank god.

Actually, they'd rather be able to control everything and has nothing to do with the Internet in particular except that it is a new territory full of opportunities and which look like an easy target because it is not really defendable with normal laws as we are dealing here with non material products while normal laws are written in such a way that only material products are protected.

Also... That's pretty basic strategy for any serious company.

That, and the fact both they AND a lot of their supporters are happily breaking copyrights. It's just their own they take offense to.
