I hate this world

So Charlie Stross posted about the British "digital economy bill", a blow job for the largest media corporations allowing permanent disconnection from the Internet. (After 3 copyright infringements)

It is likely this provision requiring that ISP monitoring and disconnection accused users is part of the secret ACTA treaty, currently being negotiated.

Of course since the treaty is being negotiated in private, we don't know what companies are actually behind it. (I suspect Disney).

As a result I should return to my total boycott of anything released by members of the RIAA or MPAA.

If you love the Internet, you should complain to your congressperson about ACTA, and try to boycott the major media providers, and/or consider participating in some part of The Free Culture Movement.
