ISPs Are Pulling a SOPA

They’re selling us out. Just weeks after Internet users from across the globe came together to to beat SOPA, the major ISPs are cutting a deal with Big Content to restrict web access for users who are accused of piracy.

It’ll do much of the dirty work we were able to prevent when we took down SOPA, this time by restricting certain Americans’ access to the WHOLE Internet.

The details are fuzzy, but the head of the Recording Industry Association of America’s bragged this week that ISPs will start policing copyright by July of this year.

Will you urge the ISPs to back down from this plan? Just click here:

Here’s RT’s take:

Some of the biggest Internet service providers in America plan to adopt policies that will punish customers for copyright infringement, and one of the top trade groups in the music biz announced this week that it could begin as soon as this summer….

RIAA CEO Cary Sherman was one of the guest speakers among a New York panel this week and he confirmed that, at this rate, some of the most powerful Internet providers in America should have their new policies on the books by July 12, 2012.

The ISPs are poised to start treating their customers like criminals, restricting their access to the Internet. And they’re cutting us off at the knees just as we’ve begun to force a new conversation about Internet freedom and copyright law.

Please sign on to Demand Progress’s open letter demanding they back down:

Thanks!

P.S. – If you don’t know enough about SOPA and PIPA and how they can come back, as well as how the above example is a serious threat, you can also read the book “The SOPA & PIPA Conspiracy“.

  1. Goodness! I didn’t know about this. So most certainly they will be keeping their eyes on our activities online. Allowing things like this to happen this will usher in a totalitarian system in the age of internet. It seems that the internet is already being used as a totalitarian tool. We should stay informed and oppose.

  3. A lot of site owners and against SOPA. However, I think this would be beneficial for people who has copyrights of the content being pirated by other sites. This way, it would be fair for copyright holders to earn what they have worked for.

    This is not a good development. Any sort of infringement of one’s privacy and freedom should be thwarted. We all should do our bit as what will happen in US will be followed by many other countries.

  6. This is really disappointing to learn about that, when the world unites against SOPA and even the Senate is reconsidering the act, in such service providers are acting really foolishly.

  7. Just when i think we are finnaly winning the war a new battle front arrises. Where are my rights and where does it say an isp can change them? George i totally agree if the us sets the wrong standard here it the ramifications will be global.

    As we all know there are lots of online users that are against SOPA, we must see to it that we are monitoring what’s really happening.

    It appears that, though SOPA was shelved indefinately, there is a new bill CISPA which seems to mimic SOPA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyber_Intelligence_Sharing_and_Protection_Act
