Better start saving parts of the Internet onto pendrives and removable HDDs.
We could smuggle data this way to less fortunate countries, making some cash out of it.
Then if they start confiscating our USB drives at airport securities, we'll embed them into our skin.
This is like, the plot to 2/3rds of every cyberpunk story ever.
If this passes I'm moving to Europe.
Such as in the novel Signal to Noise, where, after a series of earthquakes that did severe damage to cities across the world, the United States of America created an amendment that basically made the U.S. an official corporatist society - IE corporations could buy policies, and whoever had the most money wrote the laws.
As you can imagine, the first things they abolished were monopoly laws and fair-competition regulations. I'm sure you can imagine how it devolves into a cyberpunk dystopia from there.

If this passes, there will definitely be NO riots or anything like that. I don't think the news channels have even been following it, and the most that will be reported is Fox putting a positive spin on it.
WASHINGTON -- News Corp. honcho Rupert Murdoch threw his weight behind Congress' attempt to restrict the Internet, personally lobbying leaders on Capitol Hill Wednesday for two measures that purport to combat piracy.
Working quorum is present.
