No arguments found. Add one!
I think such a decision is bad for internet neutrality and for the online communities such as YouTube. Viacom should not be able to know who watches what because it greatly infringes on personal privacy. Several major TV shows such as Southpark, Heros, and Lost are availbe from the respective tv channels websites. instead of fighting sites that might host, or usually only point to files that may be copyrighted is a waste of resources and in the end will do more damage Viacom and other such companies should work to promote their sites that "legally" host their shows with advertisements. The internet should not be threatened by private organizations that make profit, this is purely dangerous to the survival of a free web and personal rights.
Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
