fucking god damed big brother

i just saw on cnn headline news that us senator hatcher or congressman whaterver - his name is hatcher is trying to get this legislation passed that will monitor all the shit you do on the net and if you are downloading copyrighted material they will send somehting to destroy your computer (if warned more than twice - the third time they will destroy your pc)

he says the computer industry is not doing enough to combat piracy and this is what he wants passed

this was on cnn headline news - so if its on in your area they keep repeating the stories every hour so you can check it out

I don't think it'll pass. If it does then 95% of all computers with internet access will be destroyed!!!

The guy is a big ol' doosh bag who probobly couldn't get some mp3 or porn that he wanted and is taking it out on everyone else.

Wouldn't it be illegal to monitor what people do on their personal computers? That would be an invasion of privacy big time.

Yes it would. But it wouldn't be illegal to look at what is GOING to your personal computer. Just like it's not illegal for a cop to look in your parked car to see if you have anything bad in there or to look at what you're buying in a store on their security cameras.

It really all comes down to WHERE the looking takes place.

But yes blowing up your pc is not a good thing and I SERIOUSLY HOPE that never goes through. Thank god I live in Canada where we don't have these complete morons making up these bullshit laws. (We just have legal Marijuana use
)

I heard that marijuana use in Canada was common anyways and they just made it legal for the hell of it, just so they could say that it's legal now. Somebody told me that when he went to the big C last year, there were some pot-smoking hippies in the same coffee place as some police and they didn't care at all.

Hmm, with laws that lenient, that would be a nice place to live.

I garuntee you 100% that this will not pass. About 3/4 of my clientel have a bunch of music that they downloaded from napster/kazaa. If they did this then just about everybody with a computer will be angry.

Don't even worry yourself about it.

A lot of stupid things are said by people that don't understand the technology. This will never happen.

BTW, this same guy recieved over $18,000 US dollars last year from copyrighted music revenue(TechTV) . . . . so, the guy is just guardin' his pocketbook.

happens to him accidently.

something like this will pass - i think it is inevitable

they think they are losing too much money and besides they have other motives for pushing something like this - i just hope they dont include copyrighted material which is not in production anymore

as for the movie and music industry - i think those figures they provide are way off

sure there are people who dont give a shit about the quality of thier movies or music as long as its free or close to it -- but i think there are many that do care and many that download stuff they wouldn't buy anyways

thing is, destroying a pc (which isn't possible in software anyways) would be destruction of personal property.. and is a crime just about anywhere in the world.

Well you CAN destroy a pc using software. For example you can corrupt the flash rom bios of the mobo or burn out the graphics chip by overclocking the hell out of it.
