So apparently the RIAA is trying to ban domain registration full stop because "all piracy websites have a domain" or smth lmao
Literally going full "ban the internet because you can listen to music on it"
They want all .is, .tv, .ru and .to domains banned from the US because they're under the impression they're exclusively used for piracy lmao
They want the US Govt to forcibly shut down Cloudflare and Telegram too
Hey RIAA maybe shut the fuck??
@norikawa big wtf on that one, do you have an article about this??
@Azura My browser history has decided to off it for some reason but when I see it show up again I'll send it over!
@norikawa Thanks !
@norikawa They don't know the Streisand effect, do they ?
One known thing may disappear but thousands of copy of the same thing WILL pop up somewhere, maybe (and hopefully) outside of US jurisdiction.

Also, while they are at it, they can return to the stone age or something like that 🙃

I'm glad I've got my .ch domain from a Swiss domain provider and my server hosted in Switzerland (i.e. next to my desk)
@norikawa if piracy was such a threat, they'd not be able to afford enough politicians & laws to try & pull this off
@norikawa I don't actually remember the name of the country with the "tv" country code but i do know that like half of its income is from its tld
@norikawa >.ru used exclusively for piracy i’d love to see their explanation lmfao
@norikawa can't wait for twitch to get banned from internet
@norikawa just ban communication outright.
Even smoke signals can send songs at a low enough bitrate.
@norikawa that's fucking insane. they had been talking about trying to ban users from the internet for doing so, which is insane because the internet is used for practically everything now!
@norikawa this is beyond parody, what the fuckj
@norikawa the RIAA has been evil since it started.
@norikawa do you have any source? 🤔
@norikawa This is, how politics work. You put up a maximum demand of which you know it'll probably won't go through. Then you make a "compromise":
"I am going to take all your money!" - "No, please do not." - "OK, I am taking half of it." - "That is a fair compromise, thank you!"
