Safe Harbor

So many amazing things are happening on the web now. It’s very scary for industries that don’t understand how to evolve, but that does not give them the right to try to destroy it for everyone.

Google is taking Viacom to task on their lawsuit…

It would seem that Viacom’s only thinking of themselves as they challenge the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Google said (in part)
“By seeking to make carriers and hosting providers liable for Internet communications, Viacom’s complaint threatens the way hundreds of millions of people legitimately exchange information, news, entertainment, and political and artistic expression.”

All I can say is I don’t steal your stuff don’t take away my right to work on my stuff the way that I choose.

Is the interest of big corporations really more important than the interests of the ‘crowd’? A balance must be maintained and the industries that are suing and scared must evolve. Even though there is much kicking and screaming now, an evolution must occur.
