Protect IP Act Breaks the Internet

In den USA tobt omentan mal wieder eine Debatte über Urheberrechtsverschärfungen. In der Diskussion um den Protect IP-Act geht es u.a. um den Aufbau einer Zensurinfrastruktur, um Webseiten zu blockieren (Wir hatten das in der Zensursula-Debatte). Kirby Ferguson, Autor der “Everything is a Remix”-Reihe hat einen guten kurzen Film zum Thema gemacht: Protect IP Act Breaks the Internet.

When I found out Fight for the Future needed help with their campaign against a new bill called PROTECT-IP, I had to take a little time away from Everything is a Remix Part 4 and produce the video above. PROTECT-IP is the latest piece of legislation aiming to chip away at your online rights in the name of protecting the entertainment industry’s business model. It’s legislation that won’t work, will give us yet more lawsuits, and will make the net worse.

Whether you lean right and hate business regulation, lean left and hate censorship, or lean neither way but hate useless legislation, PROTECT-IP is a bill everyone should oppose. I encourage you to head over to Fight For the Future and contact congress.
