Also online threats to silence the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the net. This is one step close for the RIAA and MPAA to make it mandatory to have DRM thought police chips in the brains of American citizens.

Repent and pray that you'll escape this nightmare on May 21.

PLEASE!! Enough government regulations already! There is already a court system in place to handle copyright infringement and the like. Our government should not be considering legislation to make it easier to enforce this just because the world is changing. Businesses and individuals need to do the changing, THEY need to figure out how to protect their products, our government shouldn't be doing something for them and opening the door to serious abuses which are very likely to result in less individual freedom of expression - LEAVE OUR RIGHTS ALONE - let businesses handle their own problems like every other citizen has to do!!!!
