I'm seeing variations of this all over my flist and damn, it does not look good. I'm not sure what will be happening in Canada, but I wouldn't be surprised if we soon follow the US lead.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly.

Fox news confirms this:

Youtube video explaining this:

For the record, I'm far more worried about the constant surveillance and the record being kept of everywhere I go online than I am about getting caught taking copy written stuff.

So. Colin in the Lady Magazine video? Not my favourite thing yet. I think I'll have to wait for the actual photos to surface before I can join everyone in cursing his existence and dying from his glorious face, because right now I'm not feeling like the video is doing him justice. (Basically, I look at Colin and I see S L E A Z E and immediately want to run far far away while punching things. Issues, issues, personal issues.)

I am, however, totally with [livejournal.com profile] lolafeist in wanting a Merlin jazz AU with sex and the slinky-like dancing and all that, well, all that jazz. Preferably with pompous aristocrat Arthur, and Merlin as Jack Dawson. Y/Y/MFY?


fucking hellnghhhh.
