But to try to come up with a hook for the tl;dr crowd, how's this?
The risk of these broad definitions on perfectly legitimate companies is not theoretical: ...it appears that Universal Music also included the personal website of one of its own top artists, 50Cent... Similarly, Monster Cable, who has stated its support for PROTECT IP, has put together its own list of "rogue sites" and it, rather stunningly, includes sites like eBay, Craigslist, Costco and Sears.
It look like advocates of these bills are looking at it as their own "no-fly-list" for the internet. Don't like competition in the marketplace? Accuse them of piracy and shut them down. We'll see if they were actually guilty of anything later.
But it's not too late to do something: Go to http://americancensorship.org/ and sign up for the planned call-in to congress this coming Tuesday to tell your representatives know that that this legislation is unacceptable. We don't need a Firewall like China, we don't need to fuel more lawsuits, we don't need new ways avenues for censorship. And honestly none of that would end piracy anyway.
Does it make sense to buy a Canon G12 right now? I've just seen some rumors and speculation about what's happening with the G line, and seen other things saying "wait until February!" to buy cameras, but I'm not sure how much of a difference that'll make.
As to why I'm looking at a G12 right now: our old Powershot A610 seems to be on its way out, and we love the articulated LCD so much that we're not considering any of the pocket-sized models out there. Also, we do occasionally use the manual settings, so the feature set seems like a good match.
Thanks for any tips/persuasion.
