Tomorrow, the US Congress will be holding a hearing on a bill about censorship of the internet. It uses DNS blocking, which is the same technique Libya and China currently use. You can visit this site on American Censorship Day. So, are you going to sign up?

I don't think I'd find that especially hard. At least we wouldn't be evicted.

Censoring the internet is a fantastic way to violate the first amendment, and a complete waste of time. Communication is always going to outrun the law. As much as the government hates it, there is no way to stop us from exercising our rights.

If you watch the video, i think this could be a very real threat to a part of what sites like us do. By the sounds of it, these laws are set up to be passed quite easily. Whether they can enforce them, i don't know, but it sounds possible.

You'll just have to cite your sources every time you do. And God help you if you make a lyric video featuring the song. O.o

I truely think that the government should have very little say in censorship. It should be up to the parents to check to see if they find something appropriate for their child to see or hear. If they're so concerned with what's heard or seen, then they need to not just rely on the government to decide what is or isn't appropriate!

kids sites- yeah maybe the govenment should be watching what's put on there, but only through a certain age.
social media sites- if anything, just have an optiion for a block of certain key words or phrases that is up to the user or their parents to input, but again- only trhough a certain age.
sites in general- leave em alone! cussing is a perfectly normal part of life and nobody gave two flying fucks about it before things had to be politically correct!!!

Isn't this the bill about not allowing upload of videos that don't belong to you, or is this another one? Either way, what a crock of horseshit. I'll say whatever the hell I want.

Fuck censorship.

In reality, it isn't really about cussing or content. They aren't going after porn sites or anything. It is actually only about copyrighted material. That is the reality of capitalism. They don't care if 2 Girls 1 Cup circulates on Nickjr.com, so long as it isn't a movie, TV show, or song that is owned by the corporations.
