KGBear (71109) writes "The last few years have seen a remarkable raise in legislation aimed at controlling what I can do on the Internet. From the grand daddy of them all, the DMCA to the unborn ACTA, the recent passage of the deBill in the UK and recent efforts of all kinds. I think I understand the motivation behind the actions of Iranian, Chinese, and Venezuelan governments; but what of the so-called "free world?" Is it really just clueless politicians falling prey to Hollywood lobbyists or is there some hidden agenda? Maybe the sensible, logical and knowledgeable /. crowd will have some insights I've missed."
