Chris I know you will absolutely be right if the search results on CNN ever change.
Even with the on-going stream of opposition, this is still not a "story" to be followed by the mass media, and therefore is unknown to a great portion of the population. For them, and for congress, having most of the country be aware of what's actually in this bill is "bad for business". As are civil protections.

Appointments in the last little while have been much more business oriented, realizing that they need to move forward and re-level the playing field in all sorts of areas.

So what is the issue you're having with section 230 again? Is it that anonymous posters can get away with spouting patently false stuff like everyone else, or is it because you haven't figured out how to maintain anonymity and get called out every time you post your stuff here. 'Cause that would just be jealous.
Furthermore, that the law is subject to capricious subjective interpretation.
In this case it turns out Rosenberg tried to make a "I got a copy, right?" case. Which, of course, will be allowed under COICA for those whose annual campaign contributions exceed $1M.
"Creator" economies, whether persons choose to believe it or not, do, in my view, require, inter alia, a relatively stable and predictable body of law under which investment decisions can be made.
Some of the points you make do have fairly broad premises. For instance "convincing people to pay" implies that nobody wants to pay at all, ever. This certainly isn't entirely true or the we'd see a staggering retraction rather than the slow economic growth we are seeing now.
Which leads me to remind you there are a lot of normal working people out there right now with smaller budgets and larger bills. My guess is over half of the country is literally doing more with less than they did 3 years ago.
Keep the disposition of consumers, and the ongoing money grabs by the "entitled" few, in mind when lamenting the drop in ticket prices and other market indications in 'elective' markets such as entertainment.
There has always been a, relatively small, demographic that refuses to pay for anything. Deadbeats in this era, their numbers may be increasing some due to the ease of "infringement", make a larger impression today owing to the fact that they can easily grab entire catalogs of work in a short time. Even still there is a big difference between a drop in sales, and a void of sales.
Also, in my experience the people least willing to pay for anything have in general been the most wealthy. Keep this in mind when 'assessments' of the situation come from fabulously wealthy executives. We always see what we see inside ourselves.
I see a brilliant year of opportunity coming for us all.

I realize this reference is in very poor taste, but what exactly is the message GEMA is impressing on education if not the above?
"Freedom Pat" or "Patriotic Cancer". Since I can't decide does that make me a moderate or a centrist?
These days some law firms are openly trying to make a business of threatening to sue. At least in the past it seemed like lawyers tried to keep up a veneer of 'pursuit of justice', but now that even the charade is being dropped, is it any surprise courtesy falls also?
Now, get a name you pusillanimous defecation.
point to the 1 in 100 or 1 in 1000 who is willing to overpay doesn't explain away the other 99 (or 999) who didn't want to pay a cent, but still enjoyed the product anyway.
It is easier to buy it at the store, or order it online.
Perhaps Wikileaks hasn't sacrificed enough trees to achieve an aura of irreproachable institution?
It's a tough call with Mimi & Eunice and the Humble Indie Bundle, but the Grinch in me is voting for this as the feel good post of the day.
So, to block all Wikileaks sourced content, they would need to do something like maintain a local database of all Wikileaks content and do real-time session analysis comparing text blocks over multiple packets to the content database.
The net result (no pun intended), is government employees will have very slow or disconnect prone Internet access. Personally I like the idea of keeping government off the Internet, but I'm not sure that is their intent...
Sure they can block all sites known to have posted Wikileaks data in the past, like the NY Times and the Washington Post. But this does nothing to prevent access to the content from new sources which are popping up everywhere.
No, I think "Intellectual entrepreneurship" is like what happened in Al Gore's mind to make him think he was a major factor in development of the Internet.
Not so sure he will be fired. The operation seems like a shakedown of the remedies spelled out in COICA, which, if passed, would give them the legal authority to seize domain names based on industry mis-accusation.
A little premature and without jurisdiction, sure, but Operation In our Sites is just a sneak peek of the upcoming drama and sitcom season on CSPAN.
