    Did you say that...

    the whole world must adopt US-style "notice-and-takedown" rules that require ISPs to remove any material that is accused -- again, without evidence or trial -- of infringing copyright???

    This is troubling to the Dramatic Gopher.

    I'm thinking that the newspaper and the encyclopedia lobbies are behind this!

    In part. Personally, I think this is far more about governments wanting to control and limit information.

    Not just ours, but ours is definitely one of them - and not just the current Administration.

    This is seriously, seriously, seriously bad.

    Transparency? Bullshit. This administration even says we'll tell you what's going on in these global negotiations, but only if you keep your mouth shut about it. :wtf:

    One of our fundamental freedoms is being sold down the river and we don't even get to know about it.

    I put this in conspiracy theories because I can't believe this is true. But if it is, this should be the headlines on every newspaper don't you think?

    Uh oh Sounds like another job for Glen Beck - the only govt investigator left in America. Lol

    That's why I checked on it, but other sources seem to be confirming it.

    Absolutely this should be on every headline and absolutely someone should get on this in the MSM.

    Whoever leaked this is a hero, IMO.

    Thank you, Chanel.

    And, in combination with the administration selling our control over domains to the EU last month *sniff* something is rotting.

    "Internet Czar"

    Guess who's leading the charge to turn the Internet into one big, government utility?

    Phil Kerpen - FOXNews.com - October 05, 2009

    If you thought Washington—which already took over banking and autos, and is fast-tracking attempts to take over health care and energy—would leave the Internet alone, you were dead wrong. The Internet (perhaps our greatest free market success story in recent years) is squarely in the cross-hairs of the administration and it’s not waiting for Congress to act. The charge is being led by an eager, ideologically committed White House staffer named Susan Crawford. Officially, she is the Special Assistant for Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy. Wired Magazine calls her, "the most powerful geek close to the president." In recent weeks, bloggers and online activists have begun calling Crawford the "Internet Czar." The shoe fits.

    I'm sure the libs will be along shortly with a "oh, look - it's Faux News" but facts are facts. Btw: I think Susan has resigned but I can't find confirmation or new name. Anybody?
