Go to Prison for Sharing Files? That’s What Hollywood Wants in the Secret TPP Deal

The Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship agree­ment (TPP) pos­es mas­sive threats to users in a dizzy­ing num­ber of ways.

A Global Tax? UN Debates Requiring Members to Report ‘GHG’ Emissions

Such data is a pre­lude to imple­ment­ing a mas­sive redis­tri­b­u­tion of glob­al wealth.

Does it real­ly mat­ter whether […]

Excerpts from a recent news arti­cle from McClatchy News­pa­pers: Rise in trade spurs U.S. to pro­tect tur­tles 1.       “The U.S. gov­ern­ment is propos­ing a new lev­el of pro­tec­tion for cer­tain fresh­wa­ter tur­tles, con­cerned that a mas­sive increase in over­seas demand for the rep­tiles could hurt their long-term prospects.” 2.       “While none of the four species […]

Censoring the Web Isn’t the Solution to Terrorism or Counterfeiting. It’s the Problem.

In pol­i­tics, as with Inter­net memes, ideas don’t spread because they are good—they spread because they are good at spread­ing. One of the most vir­u­lent ideas in Inter­net reg­u­la­tion in recent years has been the idea that if a social prob­lem man­i­fests on the Web, the best thing that you can do to address that […]
