We are just seeing the beginning

As I have said before on several occasions, the first couple of laws and authorities regarding internet was just the start. Almost every day we are meet by new restrictions, new taxes or new voices that wants to ban, outlaw or regulate certain areas of the online community.

In the UK it is now suggested that people who file-share will get their internet connection cut off. In the same suggestion it’s included that the government will take control over who targets and hunt illegal downloader’s. This is to “speed up the process”.

In Sweden some court has told an internet provider to cut out the Piratebay which, temporarily, lead to the site going down yesterday.

In other words everything goes just as predicted and while I keep nibbling on some popcorn our enemies will continue on this path to tighten control more and more.

I’m actually starting to look forward to that apocalyptic and economic meltdown, its going to be hilarious.
