Who gives a shit about France? And since you come up with twisted facts,
let me correct them. *snip*
Well I was just using France as an example of a
non-US country that is the reason that the US should keep control over the Internet.
your original post you said:
‘nor do I believe the control by the USA over
everything that is dot something should be accepted. ‘
I do not care if you
accept it. I do not care if you accept that the sky is blue or that birds can
fly. My point is that it benefits me most by my Government keeping control
*snip*France has never sought to make a US company
enforce its law. All it has done is make the French arm of a US company comply with
its laws within its jurisdiction. Big difference. *snip*
No, what France
wanted was for Yahoo to filter out French users. It is not illegal for an American
company to sell WWII German memorabilia but it is illegal for a French person to
buy it. So what France should do is punish the people who are buying this stuff
since it is illegal. How is Yahoo supposed to know if a person is in France
or not?? If they do how do they stop the French from getting Swiss ISP’s?
Vichy Government was corrupt, but was it more corrupt than the Clinton Administration?
What's the difference between protecting the nazis and burying iraqis alive in the
First off the Vichy government did not just protect Nazi’s but
they hunted down and sent Jews among other people to death camps. They did
this well BTW upping the body count of the holocaust. As for burying Iraqi’s
alive in the desert I am not sure what you are talking about, maybe you can be more
specific and also note a source or two?
As a US citizen you have
not paid "for the development and implementation of the Internet", you have paid
for an attempt to hijack it and it is failing.
How so?? Maybe you can
tell me where the Internet came from? Again be specific.
belong to a funny breed of people who cry foul when software is copied by the Chinese
but you have no problem pinching the seeds of plants from India which took hundreds
of years of development to perfect. *snip*
I do not agree with that. But
if they are legally purchased or even given to Americans I see no reason that Americans
should not be able to use them.
In other words, you make your Disneyland
copyright laws and you are not interested in a true debate over REAL ownership. No
wonder you are here ranting about your taxes. That's all you are capable to see.
No, I am very interested in talking about specifics, not generalizations
and propaganda. If you wish to be specific I will discuss things with you, but I
doubt when you get down to specifics you can defend your points. If you even
know any specific facts that is.
Finally, I said here before that I do
not recognise the authority of ICANN. I do not recognise the way it was constituted
and the corrupt way it has been operating ever since.
Well I do not agree
with ICANN nor do I like it. They are corrupt, lazy and incompetent.
That being said I do recognize their authority and you obviously do to or you would
not be here. My solution is for my Government to take control of this process
so that there can be full accountability.
