Everyone,

In less than 24 hours more than 60,000 Demand Progress members have stood up to the major Internet Service Providers and their plans to punish customers who are accused of copyright infringement.

Please help us put a stop to these sell-outs. Will you forward the email below or share using these links?

Demand Progress

---

They're selling us out. Just weeks after Internet users from across the globe came together to to beat SOPA, the major ISPs are cutting a deal with Big Content to restrict web access for users who are accused of piracy.

It'll do much of the dirty work we were able to prevent when we took down SOPA, this time by restricting certain Americans' access to the WHOLE Internet.

The details are fuzzy, but the head of the Recording Industry Association of America's bragged this week that ISPs will start policing copyright by July of this year.

Will you click here to sign our open letter to the ISPs? Demand that they respect their customers and back down now.

Here's RT's take on the proposal:

"Some of the biggest Internet service providers in America plan to adopt policies that will punish customers for copyright infringement, and one of the top trade groups in the music biz announced this week that it could begin as soon as this summer....

"RIAA CEO Cary Sherman was one of the guest speakers among a New York panel this week and he confirmed that, at this rate, some of the most powerful Internet providers in America should have their new policies on the books by July 12, 2012."

The ISPs are poised to start treating their customers like criminals, restricting their access to the Internet.

And they're cutting us off at the knees just ast we've begun to force a new conversation about Internet freedom and copyright law.

Please sign on to our open letter demanding they back down -- just click here.

Thanks!

Cinemax at night comes to mind. Besides right now all Cross is getting is nothing but a combination of talking points and sell pitches. The group is trying to keep the number of people they got from the SOPA deal. So they're using something that most likely mean nothing or they are a group of paranoid drama queens. Though that is the same with all political organizations to be honest.

Well it seems it wasn't that good of a joke then. But hey atleast now you know where to get you some "naughty" content on TV and I promise you the anti-virus software on your TV is 100% effective against viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojan Horses, and all of those things that wreck computers. So there is a zero present chance of you catching a virus and having that little bastard destroying your TV.

Not picking a fight, just straight up telling you what I think.

Which in turn is you picking a fight. Why do you have to turn everything into a damn argument and you wonder why you keep getting sent into the New Fish Thread.

He wasn't picking a fight, merely stating that he did not value your opinion, and not sugar-coating it. Much the same way you basically said you didn't value his joke. Which I personally found to be moderately funny btw.

Just my .02 to try and keep this from becoming a shitstorm.
