I'm seeing variations of this all over my flist and damn, it does not look good.

(this is an edited version of lk737's post here)

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly.

Fox news confirms this:

Well, it's nice to know all that SOPA protesting made a difference.... I'm hoping this is misinformation or hype, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were not. I'll post updates if I see anything new on this.

-Describe me in one word - just one single word. Positive or negative.

-Leave your word in a comment, before looking at what words others have used.

-Copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people describe you when limited to one word

It's the last day in office for George Bush. There's been a lot of talk in the media lately about Bush's legacy. What do you think he will be most remembered for?

That his term is finally over. That's what he'll be remembered for.

Anyone in the NoVA MD area not busy on Wednesday that would be willing to ride down to Marion, VA with me? I've got to meet up with Dave and then drive all the way back, but I've got to go to work that day..so getting back at 2-3am without someone to talk to is going to suck.

Yet more, cause I felt like it. =p
