I am Doing some research on the trans-pacific partnership treaty which would force the US to adopt copyright laws that allow the government to abuse copyright law like no other. The TPP would make the government able to take internet communications which all ISPS would be required to collect by spying on customers to allow the government to find “alleged” copyright infringement, and simply make one accusation of infringement, by saying “this site is filled with pirated links”, without proof, and then force ISPS to tell the copyright holder, force intermediaries like google to shut down the sites in question, and would also penalize temporary copies (think youtube buffer copies) as infringement as well. The spying (deep packet inspection), would be used to frivolously find such buffer copies and then accuse anyone watching any video with anything copyrighted in them with criminal infringement for simply watching the video! Basically this allows the government to legalize censorship of/frivolous lawsuits directed at  any site they see one accusation of infringement on (99% of the internet), or any site the government accuses of infringement based on the fact that they don’t have to prove links on the site infringe. That would be enough to get you arrested and sued under TPP!! One FALSE accusation. According to this site (found while researching TPP), all these  groups/corporations/whatever all lobbied for the TPP, which could be used to take down 99% of the cool parts of the internet, including gaming websites (planetquake,etc), modding sites (moddb, ANY site that hosts mods that have one accusation of infringement), youtube, amazon mp3, internet radio (pandora, etc), indie music sites (soundcloud, reverbnation, etc), and blogging hosts and social networks. It’s scary how the language could be used to censor the internet for “alleged” infringement.

As a consumer, simply complaining to the government and signing petitions, isn’t enough. IMHO. I am considering not buying anything from these groups  until (A) The TPP removes the temporary copies section to prevent buffer copies to be used in frivolous lawsuits takedowns of people who simply watch youtube videos of something that is allegedly infringement (there is a LOT of fraudulent youtube copyright claims especially to lets players, because content ID doesn’t require proof of copyright)  (B) removes the section that says the government doesn’t have to name every “infringing” link without proof of any kind for the ISP to take down the site and replaces it with direct confirmation from the copyright holder with proof of his copyright before the government forces the ISPS to remove said site (C) adds a section that requires a court order with proof of infringement included before the ISP can give deep packet inspection results to the government to find “alleged” infringement (D) Removes the section that mandates that copyright infringement for no profit is criminal infringement.  (E) Enacts Stiff penalties and jail time for falsely accusing someone of infringement, even if it was by accident, to be paid by both the government and the copyright holder.  If none of these changes happen or the US government even attempts to pass these provisions as  law without these changes I shall do everything in my ability to tell people who feel like they could be targeted under the buffer copies BS section for fraudulent infringement,  how to fool deep packet inspection using free plugins for browsers that are easily downloaded.  I already know how. Even if some of the corporations/etc on the list below didn’t lobby for the TPP for it’s IP chapter, It’s still a bad thing to lobby for something like this, and I still don’t really want to buy from them.

UPDATE:

Recently the Openmedia group emailed me with this link, it’s a form to email the supporters/drafters of the Trans-Pacific partnership with your concerns. They will display your posts on a wall when they get invited to the next meeting on sep 6-15. I already filled in mine, to give them my 2 cents, I suggest you do the same.  I signed up with them for updates send to my email, that’s how I got the link. Pretty lucky I did. Imagine the backlash when dozens of people email these people with what they all think. It could change the mind of the people and supporters “who are on the fence”, especially people who support video streaming sites, gaming sites, internet radio, etc. If you post the form, make sure to mention how it could be used to take down sites fraudulently, without proof by the government, how it could be used to arrest online video viewers for simply watching a allegedly copyrighted video on a video streaming site because of the temporary copies clause, and also mention how the links that are infringing don’t have to be mentioned all by name, just the assurance of the gov’t that the site has a lot of “infringing links”. It’s important that you don’t actually mention any sites I think could be affected by name,  like “youtube.com” or similar. You don’t want to give them ammo to go after such sites if it goes the way they want.

Right now, the US and 8 other countries are all negotiating a secret treaty, the “trans-pacific partnership agreement” (or TPP) behind the backs of the congress that according to a recent leak, would force each country who ratifies this faux treaty to pass extreme draconian “copyright” laws that will make the government able to read private data gotten by ISPS and see what stuff among this could be copyright infringement, and without any proof, simply make one claim of infringing links, and then force the ISPs to shut down the persons net connection and tell the copyright holder the government claimed the transmission/site infringed on, then force google/etc to remove the sites in question and filter them out from search results, basically giving the gov’t free reign to shut down anything and give copyright holders free reign to make millions of money off of frivolous lawsuits. Even worse, infringement of “temporary” copies (like buffer copies of youtube videos) are considered infringement under this, and even not making any money off of said “infringement” makes a person liable for criminal infringement under this. So basically simply watching a youtube video could get you arrested under this for copyright infringement, because watching one video that is copyrighted puts 1000’s of temporary copies on your HDD and the ISPS would catch this and find you guilty of infringement due to “downloading illegal copies”. What trash….

I mentioned in one of my latest articles about TPP, how Megaupload was shut down and my files, all video game mods, not infringing in any way, were all deleted.  It seems that TPP, which is being negotiated in secret in Leesburg VA, from SEP 6 to 15, could be used to shut down more sites like megaupload, which there are tons of…. And every single one is targeted by the copyright moguls as “piracy sites”, with claims of how each and everyone of these sites are profiting off of piracy, even though many of these sites have disclaimers that they are against piracy and will delete copyrighted files. And many of them do.

The Problem is that many of these sites have a “Premium” account that supports more file size for a price paid per month, usually from 30 to 100 dollars depending on the premium accounts size increase over the free account. Usually multiple premium account types exist with more of a price and more file size allowed. The problem is that none of the pirated files are uploaded to these premium accounts, at all. Pirates split their archives into 200 different copies all around 30 MB or so, to fit them on the free account, but to also make it so the person trying to illegally download them will have to download 200 files by clicking 200 links that all will open in new windows, why?

Pirate sites are almost always virus infected, the serious ones. And if they aren’t they require clicking on (virus filled) ad links that are to get access to the download links. The more time a pirated file downloader spends on the pirate site the more likely his PC will get infected to send out spam.  The problem is that file upload sites like megaupload cannot possibly profit off of files uploaded to their free account. The ads found on these sites fill the sites and no matter how “legal” a file you are downloading is, you will still get ads. Their profiting off the ads, but the crazy allegation that megaupload and others are “profiting off piracy”, is BS, plain and simple. The pirates don’t even have to pay more money to host their files, and don’t even want to do that. They make their money off of Spam/Virus related crap, and don’t want to have to pay more money to upload.

Now onto megaupload’s takedown. I had perfectly legal files on that site, all video game mods I was distributing on a video game modding blog, none of them were infringing, yet the copyright moguls and the executive branch morons dare to take it down and possibly “investigate” my files? Since the megaupload take down and investigation was done in complete secrecy by morons in the executive branch who refuse multiple requests by EFF and others to return files to their legal owners, who didn’t infringe, I have no way of knowing if my files are among them…. They deserve the crap they get out of this, Simply uploading to any file uploading site puts us legal uploaders in the crosshairs… you use megaupload, you’re a pirate, it’s that simple, they all think that…

It’s no surprise, that simply uploading to one of these sites gets a “pirate crosshair” (suspicion of piracy) put on you, due to this article. A big industry advertiser, GroupM, sets up ads for the music industry on other sites, apparently, hiring others to do the real work involved (correct me If I am wrong). They posted a massive, thousands of entries long, list of sites they forbid advertising to, due to the sites being “pirate sites”.  Surprise!!!!, every single fire hosting site you can think of is on this list, rapidshare, megaupload, zippyshare, filestube, dropbox (who has a policy against uploading copyrighted files), 4shared, sendspace, mediafire,  and even worse, filefront, telefragged, and soundcloud!!!! All of them besides the last 3 have had some pirated files on them, and that’s only a reality of free file hosting sites, the more files get uploaded, the more likely someone will post something “infringing” or “allegedly infringing”.

The real issue is that filefront, a gaming file hosting site is on this list. Filefront has absolutely NO infringing files on it, by default it can’t… All it does is host game demos, mods, addon levels, patches, editing utilities, all legal files related to video games.  Telefragged.com is a huge host for video game fan sites, all large in size, such as planetquake, any planet(instert game name here).com site, there are over 15 of them, planethalflife, planetdeusex, planetdoom, planet-you-name-it. Each one of these hosts dozens of dozens of other sites, many of them modding sites. Since modding involves distributing assets from the parent game with the mod to make it work, in certain cases, the chance that TPP will not be used to shut down one of these big sites is almost nonexistant. The infringing content on the mod site, really is on the big parent site, making that big parent site get taken down. Since that big parent site is really a subsite of telefragged.com, the request would move up the chain to telefragged, taking down ALL of these sites for copyright infringement under TPP, due to the “alledged” copyright infringement.  Then comes sites like 3dgamers archives which host thousands of levels for many many games, totalling in the millions for all games combined, plus mods. You get the same problem. There is not a single game out there that doesn’t have one mod that re-destributes content from the parent game, getting all of 3dgamers archive shut down. There goes every single brilliant doom megawad ever made due to one claim of copyright infringement on the whole site based on one mod for some completely different games. This isn’t even factoring in mods that take stuff from other games, which are quite common. You add in that and you get an overwhelming guarantee that the site will get shut down due to a copyright complaint.

Then you have soundcloud, a place where indie artists share their music with fans. It allows downloads in mp3 format, and since many people stupidly assume that mp3 = must be pirated, it won’t be long before it gets shut down too. Like I said in the previous article, this could affect DOZENS of popular gaming, file upload, video sharing, indie music, and internet radio sites. The real problem is that GroupM either purposely or accidentally put telefragged.com, soundcloud.com,  and filefront.com on their blacklist. I can’t see how these inclusions on their list can be an accident, with the exception of filefront, because many other sites on their list had file as their beginning, they thought filefront was just another megaupload. But that simply cannot explain why telefragged and soundcloud got on the list accidentally. In My honest opinion the fact telefragged and soundcloud are one there is proof, to me, that the copyright moguls are going after game modding sites and indie music sites as well as true infringement sites, to erroneously claim they are all infringing. They need laws like SOPA/TPP to do this because under TPP, the gov’t doesn’t need to list every infringing link separately, just simply say any site is filled with infringing links, without proof, to make it so the ISP is forced to shut down the person who made the site, from the net, and to force Google/etc to filter it out and take down the site.

If the threat the TPP poses to sites like this doesn’t scare you, then maybe the threat it poses to youtube and amazon might scare you even more. Either way, we have a law being forced down on the congress via a bogus treaty, that could be abused even more than SOPA could if it got passed, on a global scale, to take down many, many sites, for “alleged” copyright infringement. You could get every single site that the govt accuses of having infringing links on it, taken offline, their owners arrested and sued, all behind the copyright holders back, millions of millions of people being arrested and sued  for merely watching youtube videos that have one thing the government says is copyright infringing, due to temporary copies being found on their hard drive by packet sniffing (deep packet inspection), which would be required to be done by ISPS to hunt for internet traffic that the government may find infringing, and all of this is being done behind the congresses back, the supreme court is being usurped, with no say on how constitutional this is, just for more money by copyright moguls? It isn’t right… Someone has to do some serious standing up to this. On openmedia.org there is a petition with over 100,000 signatures. If you think you could be affected by this, sign the petition. It’s being taken to the supporters at the next secret meeting in VA between Sep 6 and 15 as a protest by openmedia.  Also make sure to visit eff’s page to click one button and tell your Rep’s and Senators how you feel about this. Send your own custom message to tell them how much of the internet is in danger from this, mentioning how innocent sites such as gaming, file hosting, video sharing, indie music, and internet radio sites could all be shut down under this law for merely being accused of infringement, without proof, and that temporary copies found on people computers when viewing a video could get them in trouble with the law for copyright infringement simply because the government claimed the video is infringing and that they were purposely downloading the temporary copies, just by one allegation!!!  It’s important that citizens stand up to this and use the government rights to tell our congressmen we have to protest crap like this. If there is no fight, this will pass. Do you really want to be sued for $22,500,000 for simply watching a video? It could happen to you if you don’t take part in this. It’s a scary world, and it only gets scarier.

While browsing the internet for more info on the TPP, which I wrote about in my previous article, I came across This Page posting Articles on TPP. The TPP, Like SOPA Before it, would severely criminalize and censor any “alleged” copyright infringement. But one thing I did not know about till today is that “Temporary copies” of copyrighted work would get you thrown in jail or sued… What are temporary copies?

Every time your PC connects to a site to view a site, stream audio from internet radio, stream video from youtube, etc, it makes at least one temporary copy on your PC. In the case of youtube video’s, Up to thousands of temporary copies, all less than 1 second long are made.  Everytime you  view copyrighted art on a website that has the rights to use it, temporary copies are made on your PC, till you clear your cache.  Under TPP all the temporary copies could get you in trouble for copyright infringement. Youtube (even though it does have tons of infringing stuff on it) could get some people into SERIOUS trouble. Imagine viewing one video that has something infringing in it and being sued for over 1000 violations due to the fact that 1000 plus temporary copies were found on your HDD because you were too lazy to clear your temp files. Think that is fiction? If TPP passes it won’t be…

But that isn’t really the scary part… The article above is on a site that also has another article called “what’s actually in the TPP?”. The site clearly states that the TPP would force internet services like google, and ISP’s to perform something called “deep packet inspection”, to look for these temporary copies, among other things. Imagine millions of people being sued for copyright infringement for simply VIEWING the Web!!! Under TPP this is would be reality. Simply viewing one video on youtube that just happens to infringe on something would download the 1000 or so temporary copies onto the persons HDD. Deep packet inspection comes next and finds them… Imagine being sued for something that happens all the time on people’s PC, 1000 times over…. Even worse, people like Quizgroupmovies and other “copyright holders”  have proven time and time again that simply claiming they own the copyright is enough. They don’t have to actually own it….  IF tpp passes then there will be a HUGE rise of fraudulent lawsuits against people for merely viewing a video, by people claiming to own it, but they won’t have to own it in the first place. The Copyright moguls do not care if their claims are fraudulent. They just want money. More and more money.  Recently a guy was forced to pay $22,500 PER SONG for downloading only 30 songs that normally would be $0.99, by the RIAA. That’s over 20,000 times more than what their worth!!!! Imagine that X10 for simply viewing one video! Hell the video doesn’t even have to violate the Morons copyrights. They can just claim it does. Simply put, TPP will legalize whole sale frivolous lawsuits for any reason whatsoever.

This could cause Serious problems for internet radio. Internet radio uses streaming (which always causes temporary copies to be created) as it’s core.  Simply listening to one artists music on something like Pandora or any site hosting music that has streaming music abilities, could get your arrested under the TPP… Every single indie music upload site such as purevolume, reverbnation, soundclick, soundcloud, they all have streaming music. Hell my indie metal solo artist is on soundcloud. Already soundcloud has been labeled a “piracy” site because it allows artists to make their music free downloads as mp3’s.  Imagine what will happen if TPP is passed and someone from some copyright group  decides to call anyone who dares to listen to ANY of the artists on ANY of these sites, infringing for 1000+ counts due to temporary copies? It would be HELL for anyone caught listening to internet music in ANY form if what below (deep packet inspection) comes true. You would possibly get thousands of lawsuits, all frivolous, all against people daring to stream music on any of these sites… None of the streaming music has to infringe for their copyrights for them to press charges on ANYONE daring to listen to them. Frivolous lawsuits WILL result from this, I guarantee it…

The people who claim that their music and movies are being pirated and that their losing money over it are the biggest morons alive. They represent crappy fake pop artists an even worse, (c)rappers, and horrible movie makers. Music has simply gone down the tubes so much lately it isn’t funny. Do these people deserve $22,500 per 30 songs “allegedly” stolen? Hell No! They certainly don’t deserve billions of dollars because someone dared to listen to a video online that happened to contain their song. That person didn’t steal their song!!! The temporary copies on that persons HDD should not be reason to throw someone in jail for multiple counts of “copyright infringement”, the most fraudulent “crime” I have ever heard of ever…

The only reason we are seeing this is because SOPA and ACTA failed. That was partially because of people contacting their reps complaining about them. Even with that happening with TPP, there is less chance it will do anything because A) We don’t know the entire treaty because it’s being negotiated in secret B) And it’s a treaty not a bill and there is less chance the supreme court could get involved, or no chance at the worst. Still People who value freedoms and people who are against the fraudulent Copyright infringement BS copyright moguls have been doing lately should really contact their REP’s about this. If you don’t know how to do that, visit this site to do it with one click of a button.

If you thought SOPA and ACTA were the end of Copyright fraud BS legislation you are wrong… Enter TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. This is like SOPA X10. The treaty is secretly being discussed among certain countries, including US and Canada. No one knows the entire text of it. It’s being done in secret. But a leak revealed that BS copyright infringement Censorship is part of it.  Not only does it demand that ISPS shut down any site that “allegedly” infringes,  it requires “internet incendiaries” (without even saying what these are) to shut down anyone’s access if they repeatedly commit alleged copyright infringement.  It also requires the internet to be filtered for any “alleged” copyright infringement, therefore possibly censoring the following material, which all could be seen as copyright infringing:

-Actual Copyright infringement themed sites, aka Warez, etc. Shut down. But they deserve it so moving on.

-Any site that could allow people to post infringing material, facebook, youtube, blogs, etc. Youtube, facebook, Blogs

-Any and all video game modding sites.

-Any and all file hosting sites, 4shared, the late megaupload, dropbox, filefront, any of the video gaming related file upload sites such as 3dgamers archive, atomic gamer, etc,  any of them! ALL SHUT DOWN. No more gaming files online, ANYWHERE, for people in any of these countries.

-Any Site that posts music, such as soundcloud, reverbnation, youtube, etc. Already soundcloud made the do not advertise on list of a big advertising site, for being a “piracy” related site, so did every single file hosting site I mentioned here and many more, INCLUDING Several gaming related ones.

-Any site that post lets plays of video games. The right to display a game is a copyright issue. Many lets plays get taken down by alleged copyright infringement claims on youtube. Some are fraudulent but some probably are not. I absolutely love lets plays and if this bill gets passed then lets plays WILL be targeted next.

-Any site that allows “legal” mp3 downloads, Itunes, Amazon Mp3. Don’t tell me the copyright moguls won’t use this to shut them down too. I am calling it. Amazon SHUT down due to this. The entire site would go, not JUST the mp3 portion. No more amazon.

What is left not on this list. Just news sites. Really. That’s it.

But that’s just the tip of this pathetic shit covered iceberg of a law..

Besides having to filter “possible” or “alleged” infringing sites, the ISPS also have to block them and copyright holders also have to be told about any site that is allegedly infringing on their copyright. Already dozens of idiots on youtube are abusing the ContentID system to claim they own copyright on anything they want, without proof. Imagine how much that will increase after this. Pretty much any site online could be taken down for ANY reason just for an ALLEGATION of an infringement by someone who Might not even OWN the copyright!  I highly suggest that anyone who is into any of the above to visit EFF and click the take action button so that your REP’s and Senators know about this… I already have… The copyright moguls have already successfully shut down megaupload (Without SOPA) and the Files I UPLOADED THERE for my modding blog, something I am VERY Pissed off about. I had LEGAL, Non Infringing files uploaded to megaupload because it was the only site that would host bigger files. He decided my files needed to be shut down. None of my files were infringing. All they were video game mods. I lost them all due to this BS. Imagine of ALL the gaming archives get shut down due to “infringement”. EVERY SINGLE GAMING related file would be deleted. ALL of them. No more patches. No more mods. No more skins, no more editing tools. Thousands of addon maps ALL GONE, nevermind all the mp3 download sites, music sharing sites, file upload sites such as 4shared, all the lets plays. THIS is the future that is coming if people don’t stand up to this. This could potentially Destroy 99% of what is cool about the net. Seriously. All of the following sites would be removed if this is not seriously attacked like SOPA was. People talking to their REPS should be really important if you like any of these sites:

The treaty is being negotiated by the Executive branches of the countries without the Congress getting involved. It’s really important that fans of any of the sites listed above Contact their REPS about this.  This is a SERIOUS breach of due process, civil rights and internet freedom. The more I see the copyright moguls do this the more I want to puke as I see America turn into a Communist state.

Now to change the subject for a second, to anyone who is anti-censorship,   my previous posts (this one,  this one, and this one) on the 1999 Anti-Doom Article BS goes into How the media lies  get propagated to the extreme to fuel censorship. In particular one News Article after Columbine dared to claim Harris made a doom mod that allowed him and another shooter to practice in, all with features Doom Could not do then. I am bringing this up because even though I wrote the articles 2 months ago, they still have yet to get really noticed. I highly suggest you read them as well.
