How can ANYONE be banned from the internet?
Same way someone can be banned on a forum, but on a much great scale. They pretty much block your IP and cancel your internet service.
The funny thing about this is that it's going to do more harm than good.
Does the MAFIAA actually think that internet services are going to prosper after losing nearly a sixth of their customers because they've just been banned from the internet?
Not to mention, this whole ACCUSATIONS bullshit is terrible.
Say you're a new, upcoming artist and you want to be known, so you give some music away for free, hoping to attract a label. The MAFIAA interprets that as you sharing copyrighted music, even though YOU created it and no one else owns it. Same thing occurs if you rip a CD that you bought onto your computer so you can have the mp3 files (yet you don't share it). That's still worth an accusation.
This entire treaty is just pissing on the newbies in the music industry.
Seriously though guys, anyone who feels against this treaty, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION.
