Politicians who support illegal spreading of viruses around the world - did you vote?
Did you vote for or are you going to vote for a politician who supports illegal spreading of computer viruses around the world? It is a federal offence in USA, as well as most other countries around the world. Yet some politicians have close ties to the organisations that are spamming the p2p networks with compputer viruses. Some politicians have been sponsored/donated to by such organisations or members there of, to support their illegal activities. Spreading of computer viruses is akin to Terrorism. Just in the same way 'deliberate' spreading of viruses like the bird flu or any other potentially highly contagious & deadly human virus, would be viewed as terrorism.

Spreading of computer viruses around p2p networks has cost business world wide highly financially by having to close their systems or database damage, and losses of jobs as a result. As you can see, terrorists do not care who they harm along the way. And deep down neither do the politicians who support them, as long as they get to their political aims of remaining in office.

RIAA’s “Recording Industry Of America Inc. Political Action Committee” and MPAA’s “Motion Picture Association of America Political Action Committee” & other groups that support software companies & porn industries sponsor companies that spam p2p networks. More about this

So who are these Politicians who have received donations & support these organisations who spam viruses around the world?

Here's a starting point: Bart Gordon (Democratic Rep., Tennessee), Tom Feeney (Republican, Florida), Lamar Smith (Republican, Texas), Rep. Wexler (Democrat, Florida), Mary Bono (Democrat, California), Senator Joe Biden (D-Del)

Some politicians financially sponsored by the RIAA / MPAA (direct or/and advertising, personal donations in the names of its staff)

Some known Anti-p2p sharing politicians: Lamar Smith (Republican,Texas), who wants p2p sharers to be jailed for up to 10 years for sharing a few songs. Now really, is not spreading of computer viruses a more severe breach of law & more damaging world wide. Such politicians should themselves be locked away for a lifetime for supporting terrorist organisations.

These politicians are in favor of bringing in internet packet analysing, which is akin to listening in to everyone's personal telephone calls. Thus, nobody's email will be safe from being seen by .... ? Makes you wonder doesn't it. Would you vote for politicians who support these Bills to create laws allowing this, and draconian laws to jail people for simple file sharing?

You are extremely paranoid my friend.

lol ... there are anti-piracy groups using 'all' forms they can to prevent copyright sharing. This affects 'all' p2p users whether they are sharing copyright material or not. Such groups are sponsoring private businesses to spam p2p networks (yes RIAA sponsors such groups, as does the movie, software & porn industries.) They also try to get political support via sponsoring their candidates directly or indirectly. p2p users should be aware of this. Worldwide laws on copyright protection & p2p have been changed as a result of pressure from these organisations. USA pressure with trade, etc. can make a big difference.

It is bothersome to see local laws changed as a result of trade pressures, whereas we had no such laws before.

This thread is a 'Be Aware' of what these organisations are doing. And if they are succeeding with political changes (note recent USA laws, one law just signed a week back), and changes elsewhere in the world, then people should be aware of which politicians are weakening to this influence.

Oh .. and I have friends overseas whose businesses have been put out of action temporarily due to viruses. Considerable damage in some cases to their databases of customers & product orders, etc. Took them ages to recover. And guess where the viruses originated from.

I don't see the post as paranoid.

The media companies took some serious money into their hands to harm/stop p2p, and the laws changed in quite strange ways - ways which didn't benefit their voters (since a high percentage of their own voters are p2p users, they endangered their own positions which is highly unusual for politicians).

So I'm quite sure that the media companies are taking heavy influence - and I don't doubt that they will resort to illegal ways, since their whole business concept is in danger: "You get your media only through us - and we take a share of what you pay".

Note how highspeed internet is breaking down that concept, and how DRM fits into their concept.
