27 - Volgens de RIAA staat P2P voor Porn-to-Porn


Gelezen op Slashdot:

"Having largely failed to galvanize public and political action against P2P [peer-to-peer] systems, the RIAA has mounted a campaign to link P2P systems with child pornography (NYT, reg. required). The result is H.R. 2885, which has the remarkably clear and honest intent 'To prohibit the distribution of peer-to-peer file trading software in interstate commerce.'
Amongst other things, the proposed law will require the creation of 'do-not-install beacon products' (do-not-ask, you really don't want to know), force P2P apps to include warning labels thatusers may be exposed to pornography, and require P2P developers and distributors to obtain and store users' personal information -- ostensibly for age verification, but one can think of other reasons that the RIAA might be interested in that info.
Worse yet, even given the 'operation exemption' (Sec. (4)(b)(1)(C) in the bill), applications such as AIM and iChat appear to fall under these provisions."

De kruistocht tegen P2P wordt nu ook de strijd om de ziel van het kind blijkbaar. Sue all the world, sue all the children.

Nog op Slashdot:
"Apparently, the RIAA is planning to offer amnesty to file sharers who promise to delete copyrighted material from their computers. To take advantage, of course, you 'have to send a completed, notarized amnesty form to the RIAA, with a copy of a photo ID.'"

(Zie ook bij DOF). Er wordt niet bijgezegd of je de gedownloade porno wèl mag houden.
