  29.  
  30.  
  31. ## KEY POINTS   (I OPPOSE THIS LEGISLATION BECAUSE....)
  32.  
  33.    * removal of safe harbor
  34.      -guilt presumed of host, action taken without due process
  35.      -any site allowing visitor comments is open to sabotage
  36.      -abuse on this point alone can be used for net censorship (political, commercial)
  37.       EXAMPLE > a random visitor or competitor under a masked IP posts a torrent
  38.                 or link to infringing material in a comments section. This
  39.                 individual or group reports the same link to US authorities.
  40.                 The site is removed from the internet without due process allowing
  41.                 the host to remove the infringing material.
  42.  
  43.    * dns blacklisting
  44.      -entire domains could be blocked, even if a violation occurs on a subdomain
  45.      -NETSEC >  blacklisting will encourage de-centralized dns and fast migration
  46.                 away from .com, .net, .org top level domains (TLD) under ICANN control.
  47.                 TRANSLATION: The us will lose control of dns.
  48.  
  49.    * payment processing blacklisting
  50.      -due to presumption of guilt without due process, financial resources are cut-off
  51.       automatically by payment processors, which could easily bankrupt start-ups and small
  52.       businesses which fully rely on e-commerce to survive.
  53.  
  54.  
  55.    * criminalization of the proletariat (proles)
  56.      -increased costs on the justice system
  57.      -americans lose their voting rights
  58.      -copyright infringement moves from a civil tort to felony conviction for most internet
  59.       users. Government expands to police the internet. The war on copyright will result in
  60.       an increasing number of the American public burdening an over-populated prison system
  61.       that only benefits the private prison industry.
  62.  
  63.  
  64. ## PRIOR ABUSES (DMCA)
  65.  
  66.    * "Over 30% of DMCA takedown notices have been deemed improper and potentially illegal."
