Sorry to hijack this blog, but the situation is serious…

All what made the net a human revolution is being trampled by private industries. Freedom of speech is being trampled. The right to a private life is being trampled. Justice is being trampled. Democracy is being trampled (I still have to understand the difference between lobbying and corruption…). ( and here too). Public domain is being trampled. Even artists are being trampled (and here too and here and here). Legitimate businesses are being destroyed.

The last days, most major file sharing companies went suicidal. Apparently, you can now end in jail for hosting a file even if there’s no law against that.

There’s only one way to make this decline of democracy and civilization stop : boycott the MAFIAA.

I’m a huge movie/animation consumer. I own more than 400 DVDs and blu-rays, all legally bought. But while looking at the smoking ruins of my individual freedoms, I have no right to continue to feed the beast. That’s it. I won’t buy anymore product from them. Not a single one. I know it’s a desperate fight, most people won’t be able to stop consuming mainstream, but that’s the only way…

Stop buying movies from Hollywood. Stop buying music from majors. Buy directly from artists and independent producers. Spread the word…

There’s an ongoing effort to spread the word for a total boycott on March. Even though I don’t think a single month is enough to shake those multibillions corporations, it’s a good start. Who knows, in the end, you might get used to not buying Rihanna…
