I am very relieved that yesterday these government programs were put into a circular file. At least for a while. Hollywood should never champion our (or mine either), First Amendment Rights. They are just not educated in the Internet’s driving controlling feature. The RFC!
Next to Mark Levin’s new book, RFC is a must read and must participate in.
The internet technology has increased the meaning of what our founding father’s called, ‘the pursuit of happiness‘. We depend daily on a dynamic combination of life, liberty, software, easily held devices, working in concert with the internet. We sometimes use these ‘something(s)‘, to get ‘news’, to read ‘books’, to ‘shop’, to save ‘time’ and to produce or enhance ‘income’. Presently, internet technology enforces a basic craigslist of products and services, like;
“Once internet ‘something(s)’ are created, access to them ‘can be’ shared, easily”. – John Holmgren
Certain lawyers have a problem with ‘can be’ as well as, what the meaning of ‘is’, is!
Many of the internet’s true believers, like myself, believe the internet to be a God given ‘right’. Perhaps with a partiality to the ‘First Amendment’ section near the end of a certain document. Certainly I, and I imagine others, genuinely wish to fight to keep the internet free from SOPA and the community organization efforts it promotes.
Wasn’t it an RFQ that effected the creation of the protocol we call IP, initally?
Why not use the RFQ (Request for Comments) protocol of the internet to settle SOPA issues and not the courts in Hollywood and Washington?
Isn’t the RFC a more viable solution than a Congress that is unable to pay it’s own bills?
Who said, “Render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar’s”?
And now, a short video here at my close….
