    ..just depressing.. fuck. who do these people think they are? Amazing what big companies can do with their endless cash flowing in to politicians pockets.

    Give your thoughts on this.

    The boss is being a bully, and bullies eventually get their asses kicked.

    No worries here. They will just blacklist domains, possibly order registars to remove them. This can be easily solved, by using alternative DNS or by using alternative TLDs.

    Yeah, definitely, by tech savvy people. 5%, maybe 10% of all people? How great is that.

    It's always about the gestapo wanting a push-button or click-mouse ability to intimidate, access or shut down somebody else's enterprise without a fight, on behalf of big-fish companies that refuse to compete or adapt to new market dynamics. But the tide is turning against the bully system, as seen by the backlash against TSA porno scanners and gropers, and the growing movements to reign in the government (tea party, et al) that are not strictly controlled by the major parties.

    This doesn't affect black hatters much, unless they dropship AAA fakes.

    However, this is just another step towards the government taking full control oveer online media.

    Not that bad. Just look at the past. Measures often backfire and make things worse for the sponsors. When FTPs became vulnerable, eDonkey emerged. When it got shut down, the torrents came, now the Rapidshare & clones are doing a good job. Wonder what the next thing is going to be but it will most probably be even better.

    As to the domains, people will just start using IPs instead to get to the banned sites. We often use browsers' favorites anyways, who cares if they point to a text string or a bunch of numbers.

    Also, the new IPv6 has so many addresses that it will be impossible for DNS servers to assign text names and track / translate all of them unless they use many terahertz of CPU power and exabytes of memory each second. I can foresee the death of domain names as we know them.
