Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

The US law would only block countries that have blatantly violated IP violations (read: software and entertainment piracy). Other than that, there are few details on what laws would be passed if any.


I'm not sure if you noticed, but these violations are becoming increasingly ridiculous. To make it worse, "fair use" is slowly becoming non-existent, with DMCA takedowns being issued in order to censor free speech.

It's just a matter of time...
