19. Great post...

I think there needs to be a sensible, clear headed deal worked out between the government & copyright holders and online file sharing sites. Introduce set fines for those who fail to react adequately from requests to take materials down, have them scale up for repeated failures to comply or down if they've maintained an historically decent level of conduct.

Legislation line SOPA / PIPA is draconian an ridiculous. I also feel that blazing in, arresting people and shutting down websites is a rather dated idea of how to enforce the law in a changing world.

With that said, Mega Upload, shut down yesterday, seems to have completely failed to act on myriad requests to remove work, so under the current system it's hard to feel any sympathy whatsoever. Regardless of whether things should change going forward, the knew the deal as it is at present.

Copyright MUST be protected, but in a reasonable, balanced way.
