Default We can kiss our free internet goodbye?

Dears,

All these internet "regulations" and "improvements" have been started one year ago, at least according with my perception, by MP Marianne Mikko, which wanted to bring a regulation law for all the sites/blogs/forums in EU, on the false pretext of "more liberty and freedom":
http://euro-med.dk/?p=1053

Here is her "Draft Report" (pdf, 8 pages):
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meetdo...0/712320en.pdf

After that came the cyberterrorism "threat" of chinese hackers:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle5996253.ece

Then Obama administration ordered a cyber-security assessment report:

Also in US, Obama administration will want create a new cyber security military command, to cope with this "threats", trying to induce into public minds, that there is a military danger on internet:
http://www.reuters.com/article/techn...53L0G720090422

Then Jay Rockefeller and another US politician proposed a law for internet restriction. Rockefeller statement: Internet is “Number One National Hazard”
http://www.infowars.com/rockefeller-...tional-hazard/

After Rockefeller statement, appeared lots of threats to US the power grid, somehow to give more credence to his proposed bill. Instead of regulating the internet for billions of people, wouldn't be more feasible to connect the most important industrial and energetic strategic points, into a private network, separated of the normal Internet, thus physically separate from the harm of hacking, etc? Yes, it would, if the security would be their real target, which it isn't. It is the regulation of "our" freedom on internet:
http://www.reuters.com/article/topNe...53729120090408

Cyber czar regulatory entity in US, over our public internet (the military and governmental is already under control):
http://tech.blorge.com/Structure:%20...cybersecurity/

In Europe, lots of wheelings and dealings in enforcement of regulatory powers over internet usage related with peer-to-peer transfers, the Pirate Bay case:
http://www.boston.com/news/world/eur...rate_bay_case/

Therefore TPTB considering now, have grounds to introduce more internet control, based on child molestation and illegal filesharing in P2P networks:
http://www.rogerdarlington.co.uk/regulation.html

In Germany they already introduced crazy anti-hacking laws that affecting those involved in security of internet, which need software tools to check their sites security; this law will reduce the security of the internet, rather than increasing:

https://www.altsci.com/202.html

Starting with 30 september 2009, the agreement of public regulator of internet, called ICANN, will expire and the Internet European Commission wants that Internet be privatized, thus given in a hands of a few private corporations, which could imposed their regulation over the internet usage, over us, the public. Being in private control, they can enforce on us the biometric access from ISP, they can regulate what is allowed and what's not, in term of site content, etc. The excuse is that we need higher bandwidth and this could be achieved only by this privatization

Observing recently many glitches and up-down problems on different internet sites, also our Avalon forum being down lately, I'm wondering if we are not heading straight into the "DARK AGES OF INTERNET" and we can kiss goodbye our freedom on internet we have right now. The time is short:

30-Sep-2009

What are your perceptions about that?

Depends on what you mean by free...

I have long expected an assault on freedom of expression on the internet, and there is evidence as you have pointed out that this may one day be curtailed.

The big killer is commercial factors and "cost" of bandwidth. It does cost money to build all those tubes, and the owners of them wish to feel in control of thier assets.

Yes indeed Anchor, and these corporation all are in "their" hands. So, soon we should expect a sharp decay of our freedom of speech and freedom of sharing our views and ideas over internet.

With bitterness I observe that people aren't concerned about this subject, maybe because they don't realize the serious implications, or maybe they don't care that sites la Avalon, Camelot, will be vanished forever, along with their opportunity to fair information.

After this coup-de-grace, will be on just sites where are presented the wonders of show business or main stream media outlets politics. And this should be paid for, while you can't say what you really think because you will be PROSECUTED! Already happening these things!
