The Vegan.com blog makes a compelling argument that the “internet censorship” bills currently before Congress should be of grave concern to animal advocates.
Animal agribusiness has not come up with an effective way of combatting Internet-enabled animal advocacy. But the movie and music trade groups, in their zeal to fight piracy no matter the cost to personal liberties, now threaten to kneecap the modern animal protection movement. In short, the MPAA and the RIAA deserve to be considered the top existential threat to the contemporary animal rights movement. It’s these groups—and not the incompetents at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association or the Center for Consumer Freedom—who have the capacity to derail our movement.
