internet censorship

  • Question:-Internet Censorship?
    Should the internet be censored and by whom?
    Is internet censorship abridging our First Amendment right?

    Answer:-It's a tough legal issue because the Internet is international. The First Amendment doesn't apply everywhere.

    However, some standards need to be kept. If someone is libeled or slandered on the net, then it would be difficult not to justify some sort of legal action ... and some sort of censorship to prevent it.

  • Question:-What are your thoughts on an internet censorship bill?
    I have firefox and noticed a tab that said "stop censorship" only to find out that congress is planning something about censorship over the internet.. Anyone care to explain if please?
    *explain IT rather

    Answer:-Bill S.978 or the Commercial Felony Streaming Act is a bill that is pending introduction to the United States Senate floor. It was proposed by Amy Klobuchar, Chris Coons, and John Cornyn on May 12, 2011.[1] It is an amendment to USC 2319, Title 18, that would make unauthorized streaming of copyrighted material for the purpose of "commercial advantage or personal financial gain", a felony (under current law, unauthorized streaming is only a misdemeanor). The penalty could include up to five years of prison-time. It defines illegal streaming as streaming ten or more times in a 180 day period. Furthermore, the value of the illegally streamed material would have to be greater than $2,500, or the licensing fees would have to be over $5,000.

    Several articles have been published, expressing concern as to whether the bill would affect those who stream or post videos of copyrighted content (videogames, TV shows, music) on public sites such as YouTube. The bill does not directly address this aspect.[2] Although it is unknown whether the law would be enforced as such, there has been an outcry with several negative reactions against the bill on YouTube, and other websites. An example of one of these websites is, a site where over 500,000 people have signed on to oppose the bill.[3] [4]

    Both Klobuchar and Coons have stated that the bill is not intended to affect the aforementioned aspects, instead it would only target websites or people who profit from illegally streaming copyrighted material.[5][6]
  • Question:-How can Americans stop the internet censorship bill from passing before Christmas?
    Yes its true, the lame duck congress is going to try and sneak an internet censorship on us. I am just wondering how can we prevent these criminal politicians from forcing us to abide by there authoritative demise of our legal rights. What can we do to prevent this from happening. They keep trying to strip our freedom from us, and it's sickening to me.
    It's not just about copyright infringement. It's about controlling the internet!

  • Question:-Is it possible to create a computer virus which destroy internet censorship system?
    I recently read an article about Internet censorship in some countries and I wonder why hackers don't create virus which completely destroy such system and make world free of censorship?. I am wondering whether such action would be morally justified?

    Answer:-Because hackers don't write or distribute viruses, the correct term for someone that did that would be a 'cracker'. Even black hat hacker's don't distribute viruses because its a fairly pointless endeavor.

    Hacking has nothing to do with destroying data.
  • Question:-What is your opinion on Internet Censorship?
    I have a research paper for English and my topic is internet censorship. I have to get a public opinion on this issue. So if you can please tell me about your opinion and why you feel that way it would greatly help me. Thank you.

    Answer:-I'm glad we are trying to keep the worst of the filth under control. Not much you can do otherwise.
