    Hate legislation like this. If it's passed then it'll be completely innefective, and will culminate in a situation that nobody wants, but costs everyone a lot to maintain. I need to be put in charge of information society policy damn it.

    What is this legislation, please summarise in 100 words

    It means the law can prosecute third parties if they unknowingly link to copyrighted material.

    So no more free porn.

    It doesn't really mean that. That's what they'd like you to think it means.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Haha, yes, this exactly.

    It's a smoke and mirrors attempt to raise awareness of the "dangers of file sharing" and so on amongst users of the internet with the aim of scaring people away from these terrible activities.

    Never going to be enforced successfully even if it's passed, may as well put it out of its misery.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    As I understand it, a whole bunch of entertainment companies gave some ****s $94 million to pass some poorly worded anti-piracy laws that give them the excuse to be dicks to everyone.

    The best part is pirates will continue on because they have the techie skillz to get around this.

    Can't the internet companies pay more?

    Just last month the Us embassy called up a minister in India when he tried to somewhat censor Facebook/Google and other sites and even Hillary Clinton came out to make a statement.

    Even in India which has far far less Internet penetration percentage, the pressure made the govt. somewhat backtrack and not even implement one real bad existing law(tbough High Court seems to be trying now on petition), can't see how this type of bonkers law can pass and then be implemented in the U.S once enough fuss is made about it.
