*WARNING* US Wants to Criminalize Movie and Music Streaming

torrentfreak.com

SOPA and PIPA are dead, but the Obama administration is still determined to make illicit movie and streaming a felony. The DOJ argues that change is needed to adequately prosecute unauthorized streaming services. In addition, the administration is requesting permanent funding to target foreign sites such as The Pirate Bay through “diplomatic and trade-based pressure.”

Yesterday the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on punishments for and remedies against online copyright infringement. One of the speakers was David Bitkower, Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General, who laid out the wishes of the Obama administration.

ACTA killed: MEPs destroy treaty in final vote

rt.com

ACTA has received a knockout blow from the European Parliament as the majority of MEPs voted in favor of rejecting the controversial trade agreement, which critics say would protect copyright at the expense of freedom of speech on the Internet.

MEPs voted overwhelmingly against ACTA, with 478 votes against and only 39 in favor of it. There were 146 abstentions.

“In am proud to say that the highly controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) will not come into force in the European Union,” the Treaty’s rapporteur in the European Parliament, David Martin MEP, wrote on his blog after the session.

Martin recommended that Parliament reject the treaty as it would not effectively tackle online piracy.

Microsoft does about face on CISPA

rt.com

CISPA has just lost a powerful backer, with Microsoft withdrawing its support for the controversial cyber security bill saying any law must allow them “to honor privacy promises” they make to their customers.

Microsoft’s change of heart regarding the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) follows the United States House of Representatives decision to pass the bill by an overwhelming margin of 248 to 168 on Thursday.

Responding to queries from CNET on Friday, Microsoft said any law must allow “us to honor the privacy and security promises we make to our customers.”
The tech giant further added it hopes to “ensure the final legislation helps to tackle the real threat of cybercrime while protecting consumer privacy.”

The company had previously lauded the bill as an important “first step towards addressing significant problems in cyber security” when it was first proposed last November.

Microsoft’s new position on CISPA mirrors that of US President Barrack Obama, who threatened to veto the bill. The White House seeks measures that would require companies to minimize the quantity of personally identifiable information before sharing it with the government and each other. The Obama administration also fears “HR3523 (CISPA) effectively treats domestic cyber security as an intelligence roll” by virtually deputizing the National Security Agency to handle such matters.

As SOPA and PIPA were halted in their tracks in January by a ground swell of public opposition, CISPA had already sailed through the House Intelligence Committee the previous month with a vote of 17-1.

CISPA: Let Congress Know You Will Not Let Them Trash the Fourth Amendment **CONTACT YOUR REPS**

Once again, Congress has ignored the will of the people.

For weeks it has been obvious that millions of Americans are steadfastly opposed to CISPA, the so-called cybersecurity legislation passed by the House last night that will allow the government to surveil Americans and deny them Fourth Amendment protection while on the internet.

Congressional leaders and members have come up with all kinds of lame excuses in order to push the bill through, including the absurd claim made by the House Majority leader that CISPA will create jobs.

Our supposed “representatives” need to hear from you about their traitorous effort to subvert and undermine the Constitution.

Follow this link to Govtrack to see if your Congress critter voted for or against H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. If they did, let them know you will not sit idle and allow them to trash our constitutional rights.

Security Experts Send Congress Letter on Fourth Amendment Busting CISPA

April 24, 2012

On Monday, a group of prominent engineers, professionals and academics posted an open letter to Congress stating their opposition to CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act that trashes the Fourth Amendment and privacy of internet users.

Later this week, CISPA will go to the House floor for a vote. On Monday, Rep. Ron Paul said CISPA represents the “latest assault on Internet freedom” and “is Big Brother writ large.”

Rep. Rogers’ Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011 (H.R. 3523) and Sen. McCain’s SECURE IT Act (S. 2151) “nullify current legal protections against wiretapping and similar civil liberties violations for that kind of broad data sharing,” the letter states. “By encouraging the transfer of users’ private communications to US Federal agencies, and lacking good public accountability or transparency, these ‘cybersecurity’ bills unnecessarily trade our civil liberties for the promise of improved network security.”

The experts explicitly reject “this false trade-off” and urge Congress to oppose the “cybersecurity initiative that does not explicitly include appropriate methods to ensure the protection of users’ civil liberties.”

As United States lawmakers continue to consider anti-piracy legislation in Congress, they’ve found an ally in Netflix. Now the streaming content giant has created its own super PAC, whose main goal is to promote SOPA-like legislation.

Hollywood and record industry support didn’t help Congress get SOPA and PIPA to pass the House and Senate, but now they have a new accomplice in their continuing fight to try and push for anti-piracy legislation. Netflix, the number one name in (legally) streaming video services in the US has announced the formation of their own political action committee. Appropriately titled FLIXPAC, the just established-agency will be able to endorse politicians by way of stuffing their pockets, which in turn could influence even more congressmen to condone increasingly controversial bills that are being considered in the House and the Senate.

Following the defeat of the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP Act (or SOPA and PIPA, respectively), Congress has been drafting an array of options that, if passed, are being touted as the long-awaited solution to what lawmakers consider a dire problem in the States: online piracy. While the newest SOPA-substituting legislation have been authored already and ushered through Congress, the backing of streaming behemoth Netflix could ensure that the next attempt at censoring the Web sees US President Barack Obama signing it in no time.

Secret Plan Underway To Revive Internet Censorship Bill SOPA

Motion Picture Association of America CEO and former Senator Chris Dodd has revealed perhaps more than he intended to in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter with regards to the much maligned Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

Despite the fact that the legislation was indefinitely shelved in January, Dodd said he was “confident” that there are conversations going on between Hollywood and Silicon Valley to help revive SOPA.

“Between now and sometime next year [after the presidential election], the two industries need to come to an understanding,” Dodd told the magazine.

When asked whether there are negotiations going on now, Dodd replied: “I’m confident that’s the case, but I’m not going to go into more detail because obviously if I do, it becomes counterproductive.”

Clearly Dodd does not want a repeat of the widespread publicity and large scale protests that aided the defeat of the legislation at the beginning of the year.

Dodd said he believes higher ups who are “smart and highly respected in both communities”, such as eBay founder and movie producer Jeff Skoll, are working to forge a deal with government to bring back SOPA in a new form.
