-- gets -- thank you.
Well that was a legal side so now let's talk about the text side joining me now data security expert would -- clone labs.
Ira Victor and Ira it's this whole question about so first of all where do you stand off.
Well I very troubled by the technical implications.
Of the if so -- work to pass what this would you technically to the security and privacy of everyone on the Internet.
Not just does not just those trying to high -- con ten -- counterfeit one that's why why would I be what would happen to my privacy.
Well so hits its -- understand of that.
The them the reason that's -- -- is supposed you know that advocates that they want to be able to block the traffic.
That goes to the Internet sites that carry counterfeit goods are.
Counterfeit contents and that's an enviable goal I'm a content -- myself I don't want someone a pirate my content.
But -- but since these servers exist outside of the United States.
The you can't just have the server taken down physically so the method to do that under -- but would be too.
Meddle with the -- fundamental -- and how traffic gets -- -- And by meddling with that routing.
In in the in in ways the -- was and that was not meant to do.
You are not going to prevent the pirates from getting there -- pirated goods -- you because you can bypass the blockades the pirates can.
But the regular everyday people lose security because we've been working as security professionals on a new.
Better way to do routing that improve security and it's slowly being rolled out over time you don't realize that's it's happening under the hood.
And soap would roll back.
That effort and -- -- reduce the security and privacy for everybody we'll see you on the Internet content just.
Answered that question I've been ask you know a lot of people about which is well look at I mean so was so -- website is based.
Somewhere in the other corner of the world -- are we gonna stop them.
UN today about what the way you went to the was it makes it sound like we could become like China we hear these stories work.
China's censors all kinds of things could we do the same sort of thing in this country.
Well we could but that's not my biggest concern I don't think yeah I you know.
First I'm not a -- that nervous about it because there are so many people that bypass the Chinese great firewall.
So there are ways around this and that and actually part of my answer.
The the people that want to buy and sell pirated goods get around these blockade it's not that -- -- as a matter fact there are there are already programs.
That have been launched on the Internet that are available today.
Even told us this open bill hasn't even passed that are available right now to bypass what's -- would do.
But more importantly this underlying plumbing of the Internet the routing.
Would be disrupted and so when you type in main street bank dot com.
You won't know whether that really is main street bank dot com serving you're going to or a pirated version of main street bank dot com and that's back that that's already a problem.
We already have to be concerned about fishing and things like that where they send his main street -- -- update your account information her main street bank dot com.
You're saying it's gonna be even worse job.
If I was to steal -- contents though if I was just doing your content today.
Don't you already have the ability to at least find out my machine or a -- you know how to find that address.
Of whatever stole your information today don't they have that capability.
They do but it's a challenge when you have it on some other part of the globe they it is a jurisdictional challenge when when it's halfway across the globe.
He can't just call law enforcement and say that person is violating my right so.
I I mean knowledge in that it's a problem but it but the solution that the cure is worse than the disease because it affects everybody.
Mean this this this issue of this this routing problem is big in and you've you've highlighted it.
And -- where we're -- working hard in the security community.
On the underlying routing so that we have.
Better assurance that main street bank dot com is really main street bank dot com.
And it would be such a shame to roll back all the work that we've been done that the private market has done already.
And that that the plans that -- ready to put into place and rolling out.
Would would would would be defeated and that would really really be -- -- to everybody on the Internet with -- on a Smartphone.
Or how a laptop any type of Internet connected device from your car you would we would hurt everybody's -- -- the Internet not.
Not any one that is doing anything related to -- all right so now I'm more worried than ever.
But I do a -- -- I appreciate the -- very interest in Arabic for thank you very very much.
You're welcome --
