As of July 1st, Goodbye internet.
“That’s the date when the nation’s largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users’ bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials.”
ACTA, PIPA, SOPA all seem like a fucking joke compared to this shit.
“Specifically, they’re coming for you on Thursday, July 1.”
Let’s look at that sentence for a second…THURSDAY…July 1st…THURSDAY
If you keep track of a calendar you’ll see that July 1st falls on a SUNDAY. They’re probably talking about July 12th, not 1st since THAT falls on a Thursday and that’s been the reported day.
It sucks, though and something tells me that this isn’t gonna last very long if a vast majority of people start to boycott or actually threaten with violence. We’ve seen how effective boycotts have been in the past so there’s no reason it won’t work for this.
