Pay attention Millennials. Your freedom, cyber rights and video games are in danger.
Wouldn’t we all be better off, more free, without this Clinton shakedown? And this is just one example dear to the hearts of most Millennials.
“Passed on October 12, 1998, by a unanimous vote in the United States Senate and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on October 28, 1998, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
You will have to get down from your high horse when you have to explain in court why you are not liable for infringement for humming someone else’s tune on your own porch, forget covering a song with your band at the local pubs.
“The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet. “
Do you want such a litigious life? The oligarchy has put in place another gigantic scam on the creative works of mankind and it will first decimate, then end, the freedom to create works in cyberspace. You would have to document every step to stay clear of regulations, taxes and laws. That’s an enormous burden on the smallest players with the least funding, for example many of your Millennial friends, online gaming buddies and Facebook friends. The cost of compliance becomes a burden on you and your family even if you never set foot or deal with a court of law. Regulations and laws such as these are barriers to entry for smaller players who are in competition with giant players. It’s a pay-to-play barricade set up by politicians like the Clintons and Al Gore with bipartisan support of the legislators and courts. And is a great reward for the loyalty of law firms; they pay big to play.
Amazingly, millions of Americans still believe that Democrats and so-called “progressives” are for the little guy. It blows my mind. If their blue dog don’t hunt, they shoot it. But little guys keep voting for them anyway. “At this point, what difference does it make.” I think Hillary Clinton infamously erupted something like that.
Millions of Americans and other people in other nations will vote soon, believing that Democrats, the UN, liberals,“progressives,” along with their ideas like social justice, sustainability, climate change and planned parenthood will help the small guy and minority rights. Ha. But they are out for themselves. They and the media tell you they are out for you. But actions matter.
Those “progressives” are for their ideology and retribution for all the wrongs they believe have been done against them and their causes. Their ends justify their means and WE are just cannon fodder in their plan to save the world. What was that demeaning word Hillary called us?
That is the same tactic used by “progressives” and Democrats like Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt to send their fellow Americans to fight two world wars, and to suppress the right to vote for women, American Indians, and Negroes in the 1920s. WWI was “The War to End All Wars,” they said.
Women, Blacks and Indians finally got their rights. Woodrow Wilson and Lyndon Johnson would have lost their reelection bids if they had not flip flopped on civil rights issues. There was strong advocacy against “progressives;” virtually all Republicans, all women, all blacks and all Indians stood against them on the civil rights. Maintaining power is, afterall, the most important end goal for so-called “progressives,” back then and when they were derelict of duty in Benghazi.
