When amazon dropped wikileaks from it’s servers under government pressure without any actual criminal or copyright wrongdoing they showed where they stood in regards to the first amendment. Anyone who disregards their principals at the approach of a powerful adversary is spineless. Without proof, or at least due process, we are innocent in this country. At least that is how it is supposed to be. I encourage all holiday shoppers to avoid amazon.com. These are scary times and we don’t need our interent providers abusing their authority and helping censor our internet. Now dyndns.com joins the ranks of the enemies of freedom. I did business with them for years, but no longer. If you stand against freedom, i will vote in the most powerful way i have: with my wallet.
When COICA came up it looked dangerous, however it turns out that it’s power was already granted inside the DMCA. The government can already seize any website that they even suspect of copyright infringement. however, the US government does not copyright its documents, and thus wikileaks was a terrible target. These laws should not apply at all. Using these methods to silence dissenters is NEVER effective. especially in this: the information age.
