At last someone recognizes this. C4L's "The Technology Revolution: A
Campaign for Liberty Manifesto" is full of contradictions and actually
favors Internet regulation according to a *LITMUS TEST* the "manifesto"

This document poses a specific danger to copyleft, permissive, and public
domain material, because it attacks the following *OPINION* as "Internet

"Private property rights on the Internet should exist in limited fashion or
not at all, and what is considered to be in the public domain should be
greatly expanded."

It also offers a litmus test for Internet regulation. I think #8 best
explains it:

"8. Is this policy or regulation clear and specific, with defined metrics
and limitations?"

Since when are libertarians anti-private-contract (let alone having a
litmus test for regulating the Internet)? This is not "anti-collectivist",
it's "anti-collectivist-THINKING" (see also: 1984, Mein Kampf)

Read the whole thing here:
