SOPA author back and worse than ever

Tyler Holmar
Another day, another threat to internet freedom. According to  International Business Times, beloved Texas Representative Lamar Smith  is the author of a new bill that includes extreme surveillance provisions, and a name that will  make opponents sound like criminals: H.R. 1981 (bump that last digit up  three times for a more fitting title), or the ‘Protecting Children From  Internet Pornographers Act of 2011.’
The new name has outraged many opponents of SOPA and other bills that  could bring more government control to the internet, like PIPA and ACTA.  It’s hard to imagine the whole world turning out against a bill with  the words ‘protect’ and ‘children’ in the title, regardless of the  actual contents of the bill.
In the words of Business Insider’s David Seaman,  it’s “just a B.S. name so that politicians in the House and Senate are  strong-armed into voting for it, even though it contains utterly insane  1984-style Big Brother surveillance provisions.” Ouch….click on the title to continue reading this enraging story.

Someone, please, take this idiot away and put him away with the rest of the tyrants

Global Internet censorship is here. SOPA and PIPA have been stopped (at least for now) in the United States, but a treaty known as ACTA (the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is far worse than either of them. ACTA was quietly signed by Barack Obama back on October 1st, 2011 and most Americans have never even heard of it. But it could mean the end of the Internet as we know it. This new treaty gives foreign governments and copyright owners incredibly broad powers.
