Internet & Networking "The federal government has been paying lip service to the idea that it wants to encourage new businesses and startups in the US. And this is truly important to the economy, as studies have shown that almost all of the net job growth in this country is coming from internet startups. Thankfully some politicians recognize this, but the federal government seems to be going in the other direction. With the JotForm situation unfolding, where the US government shut down an entire website with no notice or explanation, people are beginning to recognize that the US is not safe for internet startups." Not an issue today per se, but if the US government keeps this up, they do run a risk of lobotomising their technology sector.

No honest company is scared away. I doubt even the automated crooked sites offshore are scared. But if one keeps stealing stuff they are bound to get caught sometime. The FBI did a sting on one of those Nigerian scam web sites and they had to get the crook to go to a country with extradition. As with more and more OSnews it is not anything to do with any news about operating systems, just some complaint about not being able to steal movies and music.
