Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Over 500 million people use the Internet, and over a billion computers are deployed around the world. It has become impossible to ignore the issue of content management and access. Call it Digital Rights Management if you will, or call it working out how to manage copying in the digital realm. We need to solve the problem of how digital information will be shared, and an equally important need to set open and wide reaching standards. It has been more than ten years since computers and the Internet really started to take off, and there is still no coherent approach to restricted (or unrestricted) information sharing. This is a serious problem."

s it because of the majority of pron coming from hollywood (strong lobby that desires an artificial toboo that benefits sales?,Is it because of gods country?)

I think so, but not just porn. The entertainment industry in general and other industries as. Sex is naughty. That's what they teach us in America, and the more naughty they say it is, the more we want it. The right-wing groups and Christians preaching against it couldn't do these people a bigger favor if they tried and are probably at least half responsible for porn being as big a moneymaker as it is. The whole thing works out so perfect for people in the adult entertainment industry, it's scarey.
