As Beck points out, who wouldn’t want to stop piracy or protect property that belongs to someone else? According to Beck, we should of course want to uphold values that prevent online stealing and protects the4 copyright of others. “But that’s not the problem,” he says. “The solution is the problem.”
Asking Americans to “engage your brain”, Beck boils down why the legislation is bad, stating it would make things less efficient and that the vague wording of the bills makes “ease of censorship” by the government “disturbing” and “China-esq”. But ultimately, Beck says that any regulation on the Internet should never be allowed because “it‘s the only thing left that isn’t regulated up the wazoo”.
