They might as well call it the Democratic People's Republic of America at this point.

Like you weren't aware of how the entities behind this kind of shit would do everything do rush this shit, they always do, and always get away with that.

And people thought why I still insist in thinking that Hope is our worst enemy these days. You would otherwise never know when things would get worse all of sudden.

God damn it. This could also make doujinshi illegal, couldn't it?

Well, I'm not sure if the thing in question is related/attached to the law that just got passed, but I did hear about the lawmaker's intents to give manga publishers equal ownership rights alongside the author, allowing them to go after fanworks even if the author gives approval.

In other words, they're gonna be the equivalent of the RIAA, only for manga.

The people behind this should be taken behind an alley and shot. I am about to vomit.

Or just manage to get a reform of law enforcement and copyright passed without their interference. That'll be torture enough for them.
AH HAHAHA FAGGOT

Today I've heard about this "INDECT" thing, so I looked it up, and........

Fuck, this is some Minority Report shit right here.

Mostly developed and tested in Poland to boot, as if that hellhole of a country wouldn't make me any more embarrased of living in it it's honestly on par with India now.

That is ridiculous. Won't that be a pain in the ass for browsers to implement, as well? Come on, who the fuck's gonna let that happen?
