BIRTH OF AN ADVOCACY GROUP ENTIRELY ORGANIZED via "DEMOCRATIC" ELECTION PROCESS ON G++INTERNET FREEDOM was first started by +Marc Rossmiller and few members who met via anti-SOPA campaigns of last few weeks. We are a group of ordinary G+ers who have lots of passion but lack in organizing skills and experience. During the past few weeks, we went through numerous trials and tribulations, including change of ownerships, being called "fake profile" and "spammers", and first and only "failed" hangout. We have in our managers, high school student(s) to someone who may qualify for AARP membership, unemployed to budding entrepreneur, "socialist" to "libertarian", and "Penguin" to "Most Interesting Man in the World". However, we took each other on face value and started re-organizing process over this weekend. We went through several private discussion posts and private chattings. And finally, election nomination announcement was posted at 7:13 pm PST last night. "Official" election ballot was posted at 10 am PST this morning, giving each managers 5 hours to cast votes via +1 (public), email and phone call("private") to a self-appointed "neutral election official". Less than 1 hour ago, votes were tallied up and we are proud to declare, +INTERNET FREEDOM is "Under New Management" and birth of FIRST DEMOCRATICALLY ORGANIZED(as far as we know) SM ADVOCACY Group sworn to fight for the FREEDOM of INTERNET.+INTERNET FREEDOM is still going through re-organization process and may still appear "chaotic" for awhile. But we will get our house in order ASAP to kickoff "BlackMarch/Blackout2012/???" Campaign and "Discover Indies, Boycott Corporate" Campaign soon.And to celebrate our "GRAND OPENING", we are looking for few good G+ers who will join our growing "rag-tag" team of managers in the fight for INTERNET FREEDOM. Anyone interested can volunteer by +1ing first comment on this post, or send email or private messages to committee chairs or secretary +Bob Mulholland. Finally, we are also looking for Urgent Action Alert(UAA) subscribers who'll receive notifications on our UAA posts in order to quickly spread messages on urgent matter, we promise we'll use the "power" sparingly(no more than 5 a week).Here are first "democratically" elected officers, committee chairs, and managers(Public Circle Share).President ~ +2012-02-13 23:51:3817341115CC G+

In Germany, pensioners are protesting against #ACTA today. They do so because they helped to establish the free and democratic societies after the two world wars and do not want those achievements and rights to be diminished by #SOPA, #ACTA, #IPRED or any other new agreements.

In spite of all the talk about Freedom the US (and Europe) do love their regulations - this may be one of the basic causes for all those efforts to get SOPA, ACTA, etc.

... and they complain about overregulation in Europe!

Two forces make American laws too complex. One is hubris. Many lawmakers seem to believe that they can lay down rules to govern every eventuality. Examples range from the merely annoying (eg, a proposed code for nurseries in Colorado that specifies how many crayons each box must contain) to the delusional (eg, the conceit of Dodd-Frank that you can anticipate and ban every nasty trick financiers will dream up in the future). Far from preventing abuses, complexity creates loopholes that the shrewd can abuse with impunity.

A good summary as well as a great suggestion that would also make great sense for Europe in Techdirt:

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120220/05090417813/economist-notices-that-us-is-getting-buried-under-costly-useless-over-regulation.shtml

We should take that much, much further. First, I don't think it should just be "big regulations." Let's sunset everything, and force Congress to re-evaluate laws already on the books. Along those lines, all new laws (and any re-authorizations of old laws) should come with clear and stated metrics that will be used the next time around to determine if the bill was successful. If the metrics are not met, then the bill should not be allowed to be re-authorized without significant changes. It seems like rules like that might actually take us in a reasonable direction towards passing effective regulations, rather than the mess that we have today. It still amazes me that legislation doesn't already come with metrics to determine if they actually do their job.

#freedom #regulation___In spite of all the talk about Freedom the US (and Europe) do love their regulations - this may be one of the basic causes for all those efforts to get SOPA, ACTA, etc.

EC Members just don't get it

This article by +glyn moody shows just how far the people making laws and international agreements for all of us are removed from reality. They cannot grasp the fact that tens of thousands can be against something they deem to be good. So they must be anarchists or whatever.

There are new protests planned for this weekend all over Europe, let's see if they still see it that way.

Harvard law professor Susan Crawford makes the case for municipal Internet service. She compares today's efforts with those of municipal electric power companies in the first half of the 20th century.___Interesting idea. Publicly owned ISPs.

#Congress #CampaignFinanceReform

You may be wondering how this affects Internet Freedom. When the Special Interests (MPAA, RIAA, etc) can "buy" votes and legislation in Washington through donations this is a problem. That's how #SOPA and #PIPA happened. That's how #ACTA and #TPP are happening now.

It's up to us, the voters, to let Congress know we've had enough. We want reform and we won't stand for this anymore.

This petition is only one of many simple steps you can take to be heard. Another is by sharing this post publicly so others become aware of the problem. A third is encouraging others to follow us and similar pages to keep up to date on what's going on.

Congress represents the people not the Special Interests!

Tell Congress: Only people are people

We deserve a country where our elected officials are not bought and paid for by big corporations.

But the Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court decision overturned over a century of precedent and opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to flow into our political system.

Shockingly, the court came to this decision based on the notion that a corporation is legally a "person" entitled to First Amendment rights, and by equating a corporation's right to spend unlimited amounts of money influencing an election with our right to free speech.
Tell your senators and member of Congress to support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and end corporate personhood.

Even before the Citizens United decision, we too often saw the interests of Main Street subverted in favor of the interests of Wall Street.

But with the Citizens United decision now the law of the land, large corporations have the power to spend unlimited amounts of money from their general treasuries to buy elections.
To put things in perspective, the roughly $745 million Barack Obama raised to run for President in the 2008 election cycle (which was the most money raised by any candidate ever to run for office in the U.S.) is dwarfed by the $45 billion in profits a single company (ExxonMobil) made in 2008.

What's more, Citizen United opened loopholes that allow corporations to hide their campaign expenditures by laundering the money through non-profit advocacy organizations.

Tell your senators and member of Congress to support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and end corporate personhood.

The Supreme Court recently indicated that it would hear a challenge to Montana's campaign finance law. While it's possible the Court could narrow the scope of Citizens United, it's very unlikely that the Supreme Court will fix the issue any time soon.

And because Congress cannot pass a law that supersedes a Supreme Court ruling, it may take a constitutional amendment to undo the worst aspects of the Citizens United decision and end corporate personhood.

Clearly, the bar to successfully amending the Constitution is very high. But with 85% of the public opposed to the Citizens United decision, there is a potential for a broad coalition of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who all want to restore our democracy.

And let's remember, the stakes are too high to allow inaction on this issue. It's no exaggeration to say that the Citizens United decision fundamentally threatens the integrity of our democracy.

We need a government of, for and by the people. And sadly, we might need to work really hard to re-establish the common sense and democratic view that only people are people, not corporations.

Your senators and member of Congress need to hear from you, regardless of where they stand on this issue. We need to show them that their constituents are part of a broad movement demanding action -- not only to convince them that overturning Citizens United is the right thing to do, but also that it's possible.

Today, take a step to be part of that movement.

Tell your senators and member of Congress to support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and end corporate personhood.___

This is why I like Rick Mercer:

Pick anything the government is trying to do that isn't in the best interests of Canadians. Rick Mercer will tell you why it's bad for us, he'll explain it in such a way that any rational person will understand without using a lot of complicated terms, and he'll tell you in less than two minutes.

Canadians: If you're still unclear about what all this Vic Toews uproar is, watch Rick's video. He'll explain it to you. Then go to +OpenMedia.ca and sign the petition by clicking the link in the original post below ↓

In response to the online spying bill and Toews' defence of it, CBC's Rick Mercer used his 'rant' to tell Toews one important thing: "Canadians aren't that stupid."

Today's the last day to donate before our matching funds offer ends, so please head over to http://openmedia.ca/NoToToews to chip in—we're almost at our goal! Then let's push back against Toews' terrible spying bill with full force.___This is why I like Rick Mercer:

Trans-Pacific Partnership Proposes Copyright Suppression of Price Competition

Via +Peter Brantley, I learn about yet another trade negotiation, The Trans Pacific Partnership, a successor to ACTA, that may carry secret payloads from the copyright lobbies.

http://infojustice.org/archives/8305

"Dissatisfied with the exclusive right to set the price at which copies of their works are first sold, copyright holders have been trying, for over 150 years, to bolster the resale prices at which copies of their works are re-sold, in order to protect them from the normal pressures of free market price competition. Since they no longer own the copies, they have tried extending the reach of their exclusive right to “distribute” copies to encompass copies they no longer own. For just as long, the courts and Congress have rebuffed those efforts. Today, however, the United States Trade Representative is negotiating with foreign countries to obligate Congress and the courts to give them that power, even as their latest in a series of efforts to extend the existing distribution right is pending before the Supreme Court."

There's lots more, all illustrating a point that +Jennifer Pahlka of Code for America has made often, that we need to become "bureaucratically active," not just "politically active." Lobbyists are engaging way down in the ocean of government, not just in the shallow political layer at the top, and the public learns of it far too late.___#TPP #ACTA

With all the attention on Canada's Bill C-30 (un) Lawful Access legislation, lest we forget that Bill C-11 copyright legislation, with restrictive digital locks provisions, is still being pushed forward.

While Bill C-30 treats all Canadians as criminals, Bill C-11 may make many Canadians criminals, should they pursue fair use of media with digital locks enabled - fair use is NOT pirating, but rather making a personal backup or converting formats to play on a different device (ie. Ripping a purchased DVD to play on a tablet or PC). If Bill C-11 passes with the current digital lock rules it will be illegal to circumvent digital locks even for personal use!

Just like C-30 is not about protecting children C-11 is not about pirates ... in both cases it is about eroding the rights of Canadians - become informed (+Michael Geist +OpenMedia.ca +Fair Copyright for Canada) then take action - write your MP and local paper.___Via +Bob Mulholland

Why we need a Free Internet

This is why we need a Free Internet (Rant, Manifest, whatever)

we, the users, need to be free from:

- fear that our every post and comment, usually made in a specific context, will be captured and incorrectly interpreted by some machine, algorithm, or human with an agenda

- worry that this incorrect interpretation will lead to unpredictable reprisals at some random point in the future - at borders, in other countries or in domestic life (applying for jobs, insurance, etc.)

- worries that our every digital expression will be spied on and kept indefinitely to be used in any way that various governments and/or corporate entities see fit

- thus becoming a hostage to any future entities with access to that data, whether it be a repressive government, a corporate cabal or just plain old evil people

- predatory corporations hounding us for dubious "copyright (or intellectual property) infringements"

- not having access to multiple sources of information to get our own balanced view of events (see article: Syria)

... I am sure you can think of more things that you do not want to worry about

Make no mistake: these things are already happening right now, there are multiple examples for each of these points. I am not naive and believe that we can completely stop these things.

But we can make them illegal

- if our governments are spying on us (they are) then let's not make it easy - they must not be able to legally do so
- if corporations are spying then let's not help them by creating provisions like ACTA, SOPA and all the rest
- let's make sure that "filters", "monitoring", etc. are and remain without legal foundation

let's make sure that we have and retain the right of free speech digitally as well as verbally___Why we need a Free Internet

He's backkkkk

Lamar Smith is back at again. He needs to be in a horror film. Let's help him start his new career by not re-electing him

Who is Lamar Smith, you ask ? He's the on that sponsored the SOPA legislation, the one that had he said we didn't understand, that our objections were all delusional and that we didn't matter. The same one who said he would never back down only to back down a couple days later, oh yeah him.

Read and share this link of him explaining why we don't matter
https://plus.google.com/u/0/104621204832216628958/posts/GD7NNfB238Y

This time he says he's interested in stopping child pornography. Sounds pretty good. His solution have the ISP track all the personal information of everybody. Woah, cool. Oh yeah, and then give the ISP immunity in the event they misuse and or leak the information. He just keeps getting better and better. Oh yeah, I almost forgot we also have to let the government access all of this information without a warrant and without you knowing about it ! Sounds to me like instead of being a Congressman, he should be President.

Of china, that is.

Watch +David Seaman's clip that explains the horrors of H.R. 1981.

Found this via +Robert Scoble who is not even political!

Everyone, please support +INTERNET FREEDOM

If you want to stop child pornographers, go after them, not everyone else.

And please if you live in Lamar Smith's district, do everything possible to make sure this clown is not re-elected. He poses a real threat to freedom of expression and the very existence of the internet as we know it today.___Thanks for pointing this out, +Euro Maestro
