I believe that this whole discussion boils down to one comment I just saw on 

"Yes, our government is trying to censor the web. So is the UK.

Our corrupt officials have sold our government to the highest bidder, and it 
is now operated by the rich for the rich... and they fear an American 
Spring(**) like the ones now being celebrated throughout the middle east. 
After crushing the citizens under heel for so long, they see what open 
communications have brought in Arabian countries and fear the same here. Thus, 
the land of the free and it's free speech must become a thing of the past so 
that the rich can continue to get richer and the poor may be oppressed more 

Perhaps I am becoming a cynical old man as I watch them disassemble my 
constitution, but these are sad times : sad times indeed.


(**) which is already happening !!

I think that this is what they want to stop. People are becoming aware of 
things, not through official statements, PBS, the State of the Union Address 
or mainstream media, but through each other! Fast and uncensored ! And from 
any point of the planet. Facts that would never come to public awareness 
otherwise.And this knowledge is empowering people to take to the streets 
knowing exactly why.

Copyright, laws, intellectual property and legal jargons are nothing but smoke 
and mirrors.
