The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Internet providers ordered to block Pirate Bay

RNW, 11 January 2012

A Dutch court in The Hague has ordered internet providers Ziggo and XS4ALL to block access to The Pirate Bay (TPB), a Swedish website which facilitates illegal downloading of music, films and software.

The case against TPB was brought by the Brein Foundation, a group committed to the protection of the intellectual property of writers, artists and members of the entertainment industry. An attempt last year to block access to the downloading website was rejected by a Dutch court.

Formed in 1998, Brein develops anti-piracy policies and coordinates the fight against piracy, both in the production and distribution sectors.

The court said it was satisfied there was sufficient evident proving that 30 percent of Ziggo’s customers and 4.5 percent of XS4ALL’s have recently used TPB for illegal downloads. As this constituted a breach of copyright, a ruling ordering the website to be blocked was justified.

The two Dutch internet providers have ten days to block access to the site. After that, if the torrent site is available through other addresses, Ziggo and XS4ALL will have to block those addresses if requested to do so by Brein. If the providers don't comply they face a daily fine of 10,000 euros up to a maximum of 250,000.

Brein says it intends ordering other internet providers to disallow their customers access to TBP.

Difficult in practice

The internet providers say it is extremely difficult in practice to carry out these measures.

Internet watchdog Bits of Freedom agrees that blocking access to a website isn’t an effective solution.  “Bits of Freedom is in favour of a fair fee for artists and entertainers, but you don’t achieve that by blocking websites. We regard this as a rear guard reaction that puts internet freedom further under pressure,” says spokesperson Tim Toornvliet.

Bits of Freedom also points out the general lack of public support for such actions. MPs regard the  blocking of websites as “undesirable”, adds Toornvliet. “They feel such a measure contravenes both the constitutional right to freedom of expression and privacy rights.”

Finland clamps down on piracy

The Netherlands is just one of several European countries that have attempted to block access to the site. Following a ruling by the Helsinki District Court last October ordering major internet provider Elisa to block access to Pirate Bay or face a 100,000-euro fine, the service provider announced Monday it would temporarily block access to the site.

In retaliation, cyber activist attacked the websites of the Finnish anti-piracy groups.

BREIN is an acronym for "Protection Rights Entertainment Industry Netherlands" in Dutch and is also the Dutch word for "brain".
