    The Internet has been the greatest technological achievement of the 20th century by far, and has been recognized as such by the global community. The free transfer of information, uncensored, unlimited and untainted, still seems to be a dream when you think about it. Whatever field that is mentioned- education, commerce, government, news, entertainment, politics and countless other areas- have been radically affected by the introduction of the Internet.

    They control the television, the newspapers, and now they have to control the internet.

    Much of your search results are filtered out as it is, and they are already starting to implement behaviorial targeting, which sites you visit, etc...

    The internet is to powerful to leave free range for too much longer!

    Sounds like BS to me.

    If one wants merely to track down violators of copyrighted content on UTube, all one really needs is the lists of people who UPLOADED that content TO UTUBE.

    One does not need a complete list of everyone who ever watched UTube.

    Am I missing something technical here?

    Perhaps I don't understand how Utube works, or something?
