In an attempt to reduce widespread piracy in the Netherlands, the government there recently introduced a plan that would make downloading movies and music unlawful. However, this proposal was binned yesterday by a motion from the Dutch parliament due to concerns it would restrict the free flow of information, invade the privacy of citizens and invite copyright trolls. Instead, they encourage the entertainment industry to focus their attention on providing authorized alternatives.
Agrees. Bringing the Draconian forces of government to turn ordinary citizens into felons is a losing proposition. When these companies decided to digitize their entertainment, then provide products that would help to easily distribute them, the horse left the barn on the old business models.Finally some sensible legislation
Why is it the Dutch that mostly do 'sensible'? I'd love it if the Americans tried 'sensible' for a change. SOPA will ruin the internet and leave America (and quite likely Canada) in the Internet dust. Meanwhile in Europe and part of Asia the net will go from strength to strength.Finally some sensible legislation:

What you just said above is a perfect example of a slanderous, and inaccurate comment.So, basically if SOPA passes the entire internet will be like ehMac? If the people with the money don't like what you have to say then it'll get deleted?
