TLDR:

If you dig deeper, you'll notice that all of the provisions that recognize the rights of the public are non-binding, whereas almost everything that benefits rightsholders is binding.

The US, the embodiment of evil in this world. Enemy of free people everywhere, promoter of hate and injustice. When WW3 begins and we all get drafted, I will shoot the US in the back.

It just seems that way sometimes because of how geopolitics tend to play out. We're actually not that bad. Consider that the US et al. are the only counterbalance to Russia and China. What would the world look like without us?

Just ... don't get in their way when they're busy hating. In fact don't try to reason with a mob, ever, is the best advice I can give.

1% of the people own half the world. I'm thinking the world would look much better if we took what the 1% has. The driving force behind the 1% is the US. Whatever could or would happen, right now you are the plague of humanity. Of 99% of humanity. The reason world poverty is lessening is because of China btw. Russia had the KGB, and meddled in foreign countries' politics. But back then there was also the CIA doing the same thing, always more aggressively. When was the last time Russia destabilized a country? It wasnt Ulkraine, the elected government of Ukraine was overthrown because the elected government was trading with Russia. Russia is big, they starved people and cracked down on dissent in the past. But they never took half the world. The US keeps creating their next ennemy, they annex all the markets by force whenever the political power in place doesnt agree, they violate all and any international laws, they kill hundred of thousands of innocents with their perpetual war. Human knowledge is a legacy. The quality of living we achieved as humans thanks to technology is part of that legacy. We do not need the US, or any government to enjoy the human knowledge. A government's role in the world is to represent its population, and rule its population in order to maximize each individual's life. When was the last time half the world was owned by 1%? And that's the declared number.

It would probably look a lot less bombed, and a lot more settled down. Ask the Japanese about bombs. Ask nearly any country in Central and South America about trying to fight the US system of trade. Ask the Middle East (except for Saudi Arabia of course) about bombs. Nearly everywhere you go in the world, the US has made an enemy, at one point or another. Purposefully made an enemy, so that our corporations could go in and usurp (and takeover) the local trade channels there.

We have turned into a plague upon humanity. I personally consider us worse than the Roman Empire. At least they built roads that lasted.

"Look, I know that sometimes it's hard to accept that in the global quest for freedom from them damn Commies and shiftless Chinamen the all-powerful United States is sometimes required to do things like bathe civilian population centers with White Phosphorous or kill reporters when they're talking to the wrong side in a war zone and that can be hard to accept, but you just have to trust that it's all for the greater good!"

A bully taking my lunch money to pay for brass knuckles to fight the other bullies is still a bully.

Of course! Corporations paid good money for this bill, of course they are the sole beneficiaries. Duh!

Only thing that surprises me is no outlawing of encryption and VPNs (usage will skyrocket after this) which I think we all know is inevitable. Probably real soon. That's probably the next 'big one' after TPP. Bet on it! And they'll tell the sheeple that it's to fight terrorists, criminals and pedophiles, and they'll lap it up like puppy dogs.

You can't outlaw encryptions or VPN's. What I'm afraid they will do eventually is start to license it. That way, if you're a "criminal" and you're using encryption in any way you're automatically guilty and sent to prison. And if you're a big corporation that doesn't behave, the government can threaten to revoke your license which would destroy it's business.

Why can't they outlaw it?

Make a law saying that ISPs/government would have to log and track traffic at all times, if at any time they cannot read it, you're automatically cut off and guilty of a crime.

And corporations and governments would be allowed to use it, and the people would not. There are always two sets of rules.

1 priority needs to be looking at the internet freedom aspect and what the penalties are for copyright. We dont need the government jailing people because they ripped a fucking CD.

Out of curiosity how will this effect sites like voat or reddit that aggregate material? I know a lot of material on both sites could be considered under copyright. Or sites that criticize or otherwise express a negative opinion about a copyrighted item or image?
