Windows 7: Byte Rights: While You Were Out

Byte Rights: While You Were Out

Quote:
Finally, rights holder and ISPs have found a foolproof way to punish you, their nefarious customer. The MPAA, RIAA, etc. have struck a deal with five of the largest ISPs in America on file sharing. It's perfect. No due process, judicial review, or evidence. It assumes you're guilty until proven innocent. And you get to pay for the whole thing! Since these ISPs cover the majority of America in markets, with no competition, you can't even go elsewhere. The new deal is enforced in the terms of service, so if you want Internet almost anywhere in this country, you have to sign away your constitutional rights.

If the rights holders send your IP to the ISP as an offender, you get dinged—no proof required. Several dings and they send all your connections to a landing page, requiring you to call them. Presumably at that point you'd end up talking to incompetent customer support people who don't know a wit about BitTorrent, copyright, or possibly the Internet.

The MAFIAA seems to have lined a lot of pockets to make this deal.

Isn't this similar to a previous thread on the subject? As I recall, Cox wasn't on the list of ISPs involved in the conspiracy, and since the number that is involved hasn't changed, I hope that they still aren't. I wonder how all of this would stand up in court, or before congress, it it got that far? I imagine that the cost would be too prohibitive for only one person to take legal action, but it seems that this would be something best dealt with by a class action case.

Don't those jerks already own the US Congress?

Didn't SCOTUS recently rule that corporations have more rights than citizens?

It wouldn't particularly surprise me, because the govenment no longer understands the meaning of "inalienable" rights. They think that they can determine what everybody's rights are. However, I had not heard of the ruling that you mention...have a link?

I was being slightly facetious.

They ruled earlier this year(?) that corporations can donate money to politicians.
Just like real people (except they have millions lying around).
Of course election donations have no influence on politicians.

Corporations have different tax liabilities (and giant loopholes they can exploit).
I heard a TV report that said Exxon didn't pay ANY tax to the US Government in 2009(?)
I don't know if that's true.

If you or I kill somebody, we'll probably get sent to gaol.
Corporations normally only get fined.

If you or I had caused the GFC, we'd be in gaol (or Gitmo, or worse).
A lot of corporations got handouts, especially the ones that caused the problem in the first place.

Thus from a "certain point of view", they have more rights than ordinary people.
