Youtube would change names every day.

Suddenly, instead of going to Youtube, we would all just go to u2ube, then othertube.com, then biffytube or whatever. The content would just slide around to avoid this. Then the ISPs wold come up with another way of overcharging people.

they would only have a white list of sites you are allowed to go to. anything not on the white list will be a pay site.

speaking of, i wonder what porn sites would think of this. where is their vote? they make more money online than any other industry therefore you would think they would want some kind of say in how this all turns out.

Schools, goverment sites etc etc.. They will have to make a long list for that white list. I will be charged for going to the Sears web site because I need to order a part for my lawn mower????

How about sites like this? »www.blufftonyouthsports.com/

Not a .gov »www.beaufort.k12.sc.us/S ··· dex.aspx probably on the list.
