There is anger in Poland over the country signing up to a anti-piracy pact with other nations to suppress Internet freedom. They say this is about piracy, but this is all about taking away our right to freedom of speech which is the main strength of the Internet and taking it away will reduce the power of the people to communicate to the rest of the world what is going on around them. Poland went through so much in World War II and now they have the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), to deal with. The SOPA bill was defeated in the Senate, but this does not stop the censorship of the Internet. We need to keep campaigning to educate others about this bill and the effects that it will have on the future of the Internet. is this why there are so many operating systems coming out with tablet interfaces nowadays? Do they want to remove general purpose computers and replace them with an appliance instead?
In my other post about the SOPA censorship bill I presented an image I got off the Internet that showed the possible future of the Internet under SOPA, this could come true indeed. A 2GiB cap would not last long if you were browsing Hulu and Netflix. Restricting Internet freedom will only drive piracy of movies and music underground, the users who want to get hold of counterfeit content will find a way to get it, either using TOR or some other private network parallel to the main Internet.
