I was conducting a quick Google search to respond to the following, quoted from another thread,...:

Quote
"As I said in the other thread, it is precisely for this reason that Namecoin exists. Note that sites do not need to be based in the U.S. for the US Government to seize their domains, since ICANN is based in the US...."

   Ok, so why doesnt Big brother shut down websites he doesnt like in Iran, N Korea, etc?   What is the antidote or preventative measure to avoid the US gov. shutting down any btc accepting site?


...when I ran across and read this:

The Bombshell That Could Detonate Your Internet: http://www.internetevolution.com/author.asp?section_id=852&doc_id=234015&f_src=internetevolution_gnews

Quote
The question does not get more savagely blunt: Do you want government running your Internet--deciding what is permissible content, or what could land you in jail?

I'm sure there's a myriad of other serious ramifications, if IGF standards are implemented, that could effect Bitcoin directly, let alone indirectly.

There's uncensored mesh based networks being set up all over Europe

too bad wifi is shit technology and too slow yet for a mass darknet. this is also why we have Tor, and bulletproof hosting providers in Moldova and other CIS countries that don't care about lawsuits, trademarks, DMCA takedown notices or excited states of America MLAT treaties
