The MPAA and RIAA’s dystopian wish-list for the US government

From article:

The MPAA and RIAA have submitted their master plan for enforcing copyright to the new Office of Intellectual Property Enforcement. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Richard Esguerra points out, it’s a startlingly distopian work of science fiction. The entertainment industry calls for:

  • spyware on your computer that detects and deletes infringing materials;
  • mandatory censorware on all Internet connections to interdict transfers of infringing material;
  • border searches of personal media players, laptops and thumb-drives;
  • international bullying to force other countries to implement the same policies;
  • and free copyright enforcement provided by Fed cops and agencies (including the Department of Homeland Security!).

This is the most disturbing story I have read in a long time, I seriously don’t get why the people of the world aren’t rising up against this type of behavior.

I mean are we just going to sit there on our fat asses and do nothing when the corporations are shitting on our freedoms right in front of us?
