world without free knowledge

...is uncalled for.


Intellectual Property, such as movies, music or writing that, in the digital age, can easily be copied and transmitted online without payment to their creators. hence:

SOPA - the Stop Online Piracy Act

PIPA - the Protect Intellectual Property Act.

you can read the gist of it here.

well, this is about the only interesting news for today. apart from a high rise building under construction that caught fire in the wee hours of the morning, which might have caused the uncalled for jam on Federal Highway on a supposedly smooth Wednesday morning...
