Windows 7: American ISPs to launch massive copyright spying scheme on July 12

I'm in Canada. So far I can't see how this applies to me. This may be a common trend, I don't know.

As far as I know, this is just an American problem...at the moment, but once it's in place here, they will probably push for it elsewhere also.

Well, I tend to think if America does it, other countries will soon follow the trend quickly.

This is terrible and just wrong on so many levels! I feel sorry for you guys in the USA... no doubt we will eventually get it over here in UK.
Why don't they just get on with it and microchip us all and put CCTV cameras in out homes...just to make sure we are not doing anything we are not supposed to! Here in the UK we apparently have the highest number o f CCTV cameras than anywhere in the world and each person gets an average of over 300 CCTV appearances per day... so our government will no doubt love this.

The UK is extreme, it wouldn't be because they are a predominantly right wing nation ? In Canada we are more Left wing, although most people got hood winked by the Right in the past election, now we have a Right Wing government.

I have had my rights infringed. I only found out by sheer chance. It has happened to me more than once.

Ask around others in the business - and you can get similar stories.

If you are lucky enough to find out - and if you have the proof, and you approach the company concerned - they simply pay up what they should have paid in the first place.

Often it involves using your work in a foreign country. It is extremely unlikely you would find out - only if you happened to have a friend who was in that country at the time - that friend just happened to see your work - then reported back to you. Preferably your friend should get some kind of proof as well - but they would only do that if they understood the business - otherwise it would not cross their minds to do so.

If you don't find out - you never get paid.

These are not tiny sums - typically 1000-5000.

I am convinced I have been ripped off tens of thousands this way.

Companies have nothing to lose by doing it - in the unlikely event you find out - they pay up. Otherwise they don't. It is that simple.

I am not talking about spotty teenagers in their bedroooms downloading a few songs.

These are companies ( corporations in American).




I have never heard of this guy - but his podcast is interesting - about 4m10s in :

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Harper tried this. But the media is by law supposed to be truthful, so I anticipate that the cause and affect will be swift and Harper would fail.

Left wing...right wing, they both are attached to the same bird. They may not flap in sync, but ultimately they will arrive at the same destination. If anyone complains about the route, they simply point a feather at the other wing. They stay aloft by plucking the feathers of others. Make no mistake, I do have my own bias, which may not always be in sync with the with the true rhythm being flapped out, but then I doubt that most people's are. We are all on a strange migration, that has taken many years just to approach our destinations, but we shall land soon.

That is why it was said. "Narrow is the path". Too far left or right...your toast.

I think that we are both on the same roadmap.
