I’m skeptical that they are going to be able to come up with anything more effective than the DMCA without riding roughshod over fair use. That won’t stop them from trying.

The best way to reduce piracy is to make it easy for people to buy what they want online in the formats they want. If you want mp3s you can get them off itunes or Amazon, but if you prefer FLAC you’ve still got to pirate or buy the physical media and rip your own. Netflix streaming has been revolutionary but there’s still a ton of content lacking.

I’d gladly pay $100 a month to have all media, music, film, and television available at my fingertips whenever I want it. I’d even accept high quality streaming audio if it could be made to work with an ipod.

There will always be people who pirate stuff and they are not people who would ever seek out the product for cash so no money is being lost on them. The big content industry needs to give up on trying to stop these people and focus their efforts on delivering a product that the majority of people will want to pay for.

I didn’t vote for President Obama but I’m glad he’s my President. I also contacted my congressman about these two bills. He’s on the same page as everyone else wanting a freedom first internet.

Actually it’s been well-documented by numerous studies all over the world that people who pirate are also the largest movie buyers. Almost all studies found that the more piracy exists, the more product is actually bought.
Something the industry steadfastly refuses to even consider acknowledging - it’s their own little cloud of industry denial, and I’m sure driven by fogeys who have no clue about technology and the modern film lover.
I for one have ‘pirate’d, and have purchased that which I liked after viewing. That may not be right or legal, but it certainly has meant me buying more stuff. And I know that’s true for those I know who also ‘pirate’.

This, ACA, the Civil Rights Division actually doing it’s job, Iraq, and on and on and on… sure there are quite a few things I don’t like about Obama. But there are so many more things I very much approve of.
