So I just got a new Google TV (GTV) and was checking out all of the apps for it and what they can do, I downloaded one named "Mitty" which (apparently) uses Bittorrent as it's backend, searched for the first movie that came to mind at the moment, which was the new Batman movie: The Dark Knight Rises, thought I'd grab it to see how the app worked as I figured the movie itself would look like seeing that it's not the real thing, and what do I get in my email box the next morning?
BOOM! (I X'd out the personal parts)
If you've ever entered a fake name on a website, or created a fake Facebook, Myspace, Match.com, etc. then guess what? You are a federal criminal! Or at least will be one if this new law passes.
Ever heard the phrase "one bad apple spoils the whole dang bunch?" This newly proposed law is using the Lori Drew case, the case in which said woman created a fake Myspace profile and proceeded to harass a 13 year old girl, who then when on to commit suicide due to Lori's harsh words, as their main weapon in getting this law passed.
So, ever since Illinois Gov. Quinn signed HB 3659 into law, websites / companies have been dropping it's Illinois affiliates like they were holding an atom bomb.
