US Senator Launched Petition Against Copyright Bills

An online petition started by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is asking the Congress to stop the SOPA and the Protect IP Act.

The petition in question claims that the country has had enough of government’s meddling and over-regulation, but Congress is for some reason still pushing a couple of dangerous and unconstitutional legislations meant to regulate the sector of the US economy which is creating jobs: the Internet. This senator has already spoken against the suggested laws earlier, trying to explain the problems raised by them. In response, the entertainment industry insisted that both bills are necessary to fight piracy, which would increase the US income. At the same time, tech industries argue that the laws aren’t just going to affect their businesses, but also represent a threat to free speech.

However, Senator Paul wasn’t mentioned among the announced co-sponsors of the alternate piracy legislation expected to be released in a few days by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Senator Ron Wyden. This new bill would rely on the International Trade Commission to handle copyright claims and focus on payment processors and advertising networks, dispensing search providers and different online companies from having to take action.

In response, House’s chairman claimed they didn’t need a petition to kill a suggestion to prevent intellectual property theft on the Internet. Instead, they were waiting for a petition to stop “notorious” foreign sites stealing goods, profits and jobs that belong to US innovators. Aside from stealing entertaining content, such services also offer counterfeit medicine, automobile parts and even baby food. The government also pointed out that the introduced manager’s amendment considers legal and technical concerns with the original draft of the law. Meanwhile, the proposed changes reflect conversations with such web giants as Microsoft and Facebook, making it clear that the law particularly targets the worst-of-the-worst foreign notorious sites. Legitimate sites like Facebook or Twitter are assured to have nothing to worry about under the proposed legislation. The officials also claimed that the SOPA won’t provide a unilateral authority to the Justice Department or copyright holders to remove foreign sites
