It's probably being marketed by Vivendi Universal and all those suits with
lobbyists. They have money for brainwash and influence. And that's just on the
copyrights front... there's also political dissent that they dislike.
Someone should start bringing a mesh infrastructure for an Internet that is not
being tempered by angry middlemen who find excuses for general censorship...
using reasonable /excuses/ like terrorism, theft, and paedophelia.
