There are signs that the US taxpayer is footing the bill for Big Content’s anti-copyright crusades.
Just how and when did the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement get the power to shutdown websites for perceived ‘copyright’ violations? This man’s facing jail time for just having links on his website. He had no copyrighted material hosted on his site. This is a dangerous precedent and if allowed to continue is a serious violation of our 1st and 4th amendments constitutional rights.
“Under that sort of thinking, everyone who’s sent around a link to a copyrighted YouTube video is a criminal,” Demand Progress warned, calling the prosecution a “radical shift” in the way the government polices the Internet.
