19. BUT BUT BUT......So, if copyright ability is expanded
where does that leave information sources?

1. It leaves us without information unless it is filtered through the "OK Corral Police Incorporated"

2. Just like the DMCA it gives self proclaimed holders of copyright information the right to censor and control the message.

3. Have we forgotten about RIGHTHAVEN suing Democratic Underground and being defended by the EFF? That is exactly what this bill will aggravate.

4. When EFF talks - I listen. When Senators vote I listen with a grain of salt and a big dose of cynicism and look for self serving agendas.

5. VEHEMENTLY as well as noted founding members of the internet community oppose this bill on the basis that it is not in the people's interest.
