The Internet has been a shining example of what the Free Market (Capitalism) can do when the infection by the Federal Government is kept at a minimum. Of course that won’t do.
And, like the crony capitalism of the Green Movement, big business is pushing the government to pass business crushing regulations to benefit their own entities while keeping new start-ups off the map.
HR 3261, the so-called Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), gives broad authority to shut down access to web sites, possibly even Facebook, YouTube, and Google, because an individual posts one link to or a file copy of protected content. Additionally, the door is wide open to shutting down (censoring) sites that have opposing political content.
