Submission + - RIAA Wants Net Neutrality to Include Filtering (arstechnica.com) 1

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "The RIAA is now worried about the FCC's rulemaking concerning Net Neutrality. Specifically, they're worried that the rules might make it difficult for ISPs to filter out copyright infringement and child pornography, so they want to make sure that spying on and filtering internet traffic is okay, so long as it's being done for a good reason, even if it doesn't work correctly and blocks non-infringing content. Incidentally, the RIAA has some justification to lump child pornography and copyright infringement: after all, people might infringe upon the original cover art for the album 'Virgin Killer' which featured a naked under-aged girl in a way that some consider pornographic. The copyright on it belongs to RCA Records."

  • I love how both of them are lumped together. That way if someone says anything bad about filtering you can yell "AHA! You like child porn don't you, you sick person."

    Since when do RIAA care about anything more than their pockets? (Answer: Since never)

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
