With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists.

The only way is to hit them where it hurts.

Their profit margins.

March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide.

Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine.

Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent:

"We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

Clearly I've missed the boat on this. I think I understand the issues involved and I still don't quite get why there is raging frothing fury. [profile] tainted4life, I know you have an opinion on this. Share? I am confused. Ta.

Despite knowing that quote is not accurate, I must use it to describe how it feels to have exfoliated one's face for the first time in, oh god, FOR EVER. XD I feel like a human being again! I did not even realise that I had stopped feeling like a human being!

This internet filtering bullshit is ridiculous. I thought I should let you all know that when/if it comes in, I will probably start blogging in Al Bhed. Or writing in Al Bhed. Fa crymm caa ruf avvaldeja draen internet vemdanehk ec drah. >:| (Okay, so it will involve the most basic cryptography to break, but still. XD At that point you will be able to use this form to translate. XD) I've downloaded the report on the govt.'s closed-environment testing of ISP-level filtering, so I'll be reading that and, um, actually seriously considering a campaign of some kind, but that will take further thought than I have given it at this point in time.

Also, I thought that wasp dream could use some clarification. )

Maybe I do have a stinging insect phobia. XD; It was really bad.

Also, omgomgomg, I can... I mean, I need to make a list, but... commission. s. from EK. Eee hee hee. <3

And it just occurred to me that we are going to Chermside to shop so I can look at another Borders for books that I care about! Score!
