Important! New bill might be WORSE than SOPA/PIPA

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 22, 2012, 11:23 AM



This is not about ACTA, it is about a new bill to back up SOPA and PIPA which is worse than those two and them combined.

IF you guys are tired with all the story of SOPA and PIPA, Lamar Smith, creator of thise bills is at it AGAIN.
Now he has created the bill  H.R. 1981 which has more potential to invave our pricacy and control the internet users than SOPA ever had!

His bill uses Child Pornography as a screen to monitor your credit card and bank activity on the internet. It requires that Internet Providers hold on to information about your browsing history for up to 18 months.
Altough he says our personal infortmation will be kept in a ''safe'' place, anyone knows this is the perfect excuse for hackers to steal our personal information. it is MCUH MORE dangerous than SOPA and PIPA.

Haly-K and me made a petition here:

www.change.org/petitions/lamar… for Lamar Smith to stop with all this insanity!


Guys, I never made a petition before but this cannot happen. So please sign, share, help me improve the petition, anything you do will be a difference! People needs to know that, and we all had a proof of how powerful the internet can be is we all act together.
I repeat, this is potentially worse than SOPA and PIPA.  It cannot happen.

People from Texas, for heaven's sake don't let this guy be elected again. He is clearly trying to destroy our last haven for free speech.

Man, I'd say vote anyone out that: 1) that supports this, 2) cahoots with Hollywood (Hollywood wants this to pass, I even heard Lamar is in cahoots with Hollywood), 3) Act as though the US Constitution doesn't exist, 4) Ignores the US Constitution, 5) Doesn't use common sense, 6) Acts like a overbearing nanny that you see in the movies/cartoons/ books outlaws common sense and fun.

(I wish I knew a bit about how countries call their own constitution and government, so I won't be a bit stuck with the 'Write what you know')

I won't be surprise: if Anonymous strikes again. Texas votes Lamar out (I'd be silently rooting for Texas and squeeing for this). In the future, we'll be petitioning to the new political guys and president to support better copywrite laws that actually battle piracy (i.e. OPEN).

a questão aqui é simples: eles querem controlar a internet e lucrar com esta redução de liberdade e privilegos as custa de tudo oque torna a internet livre.

eles não estão afim de combater a piratira e sim tirar o conteudo livre de todos e a liberdade de expressão que advem deles.

torço muito para que as ideias deste maldito politico dos EUA seja barrada sempre e que o mesmo seja removido de cena o mais rapidamente. o mundo não precisa de lixo como ele:X....

Just let this law pass. JUST TRY.

Those f*cking politicians are going to see what they'll get by themselves if this passes.

I'm a programmer, and I can swear you, anything these recent laws propose can be worked around. It won't be comfortable for many, but believe me, it was not designed to combat piracy, child porn, or whatever bullshit these guys claim.

The important part is that these laws were designed to hurt freedom!!!

we don't have much time left. ACTA is close from being passed.

we must fight ACTA, it seems much worse than SOPA!
