Anon1: I can guarantee you I am not pro-copyright. My motive behind those comments at the end is I believe we must stand up and fight rather than just accepting what is happening in the way of copyright laws because they have potential to ruin the internet.
Your comments do more and more to cement my impression that you are very Very VERY much PRO-copyright and not at all concerned about the Internet at all, but have an agenda to drum up fear and action that can, does and will damage the Internet.
You hide behind an alias. You advocate actions which cause serious disruption to the network and cause billions of dollars of damage to the network every year.
Network techs spend billions of dollars designing systems in every attempt to protect the network from the actions you are advocating.
If you really want to rise up in a positive way, then join groups like Internet New Zealand, in your real name, accept the endless invitations to be part of Internet policy making... hell, I issued one on Friday to meet me at a Wellington pub and I went to the DNC meeting last week in Christchurch where global internet issues were talked about.
With direct respect to copyright law, to get what you want we need those laws to be much better and much stronger than they currently are.
I don't know anything about what you know about policy makers, but these guys are very smart and really do know how to play chess. They know well when to loose a game to win the prize.
My mother commented to me just this morning that the Internet is a truely amazing domain to bring peace to the world, yet you advocate engaging in a global war in the space that has the most chance to maintain peace around the globe.
I honestly recommend doing some research in to the global wars of the 20th century and ask yourself if you honestly want a return to that time?
