    The anti-SOPA/PIPA forces (many of whom are charged with profiting from off-shore traffic) offer no real solution other than Hollywood needs to change its business model without understanding the Hollywood business model

    So? That's their problem. By your "logic", it's unfair of me to complain about having my pocket picked unless I do the legwork to find the pickpocket some other means of acquiring money.
    I'm curious what you think of this DGA statement from yesterday

    As usual, I started by doing a quick scan to see if any blatant lies jumped out at me. Sure enough....
    Rogue sites legislation provides the exact same due process protection provided to every individual who appears before a U.S. Court

    Nope -- the bills empower accusers to demand search traffic diversion, DNS removal*, and interdiction of financial transfers upon accusation, prior to any sort of due process.

    *Supposedly, this is being amended out. I'll believe that when I see it.

    After that, I went to TL:DR (Tawdry Lies; Didn't Read) mode.

    On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

      No it's my problem as someone who is employed in Hollywood. And it's the diarist's problem for the same reason.

      And there was a distinct reason I asked the diarist's opinion - this diary has shown an understanding of the mixed emotions about SOPA/PIPA and piracy.  Your comment does not.
