Today, the 18 January 2012 many Internet-based companies protested against 2 motions that are being voted on in the U.S. House.
I have previously noted this and is actually a little afraid that so few respond to what happens around us.
Many may think that it is not our problem what happens to U.S. laws for the Internet, but we must not forget that we here in Sweden gladly follow in their footsteps.
If the record companies have more power, who knows what pressure it will exert on other countries, Who knows how many Swedes who may be prosecuted, maybe just because they share a video with their cover band has a gig.
These laws may affect a large part of how we experience the Internet today, inga videos på youtube, censored search results on Google.
Small new companies can be hard to put their roots then we may miss many important visitors from America, such as, and even worse, they will not even be able to find the services that are not approved by U.S. privately held media company.
It is dangerous, just as Rand writes in his insightful blog post, is that these things easily fall into oblivion, and that a similar or worse bill may be voted, without anyone noticing.
This affects all of us who are active on the Internet, and perhaps t.o.m living on the. If we are not careful, we will not have a free internet for too long.
Do not let foreign economic interests kill our Internet.
