This blog has learned that the leader of the PMDB in the House of Deputies, Eduardo Cunha is personally striving to transform a long debate in society on an agreement between two economic sectors, telcos and broadcasters. That is , Vivo , TIM , Claro and Globo. The approval of the text of Marco Civil (Bill of Rights) on the internet literally climbed on the roof and will only go down with some level of quality if society starts rebelling.
According to the deal that has been forwarded by Eduardo Cunha, Globo would be negotiating, at least partially, the neutral sense of the network and would keep the law which garantees that the copyright laws in Brazil would surpass hthe human rights.
That’s right, you haven’t read it wrong. Globo defends that only for questions that involve copyright there shouldn’t be the need of a law suit so that the content is withdrawn from the media. That is, you can defend pedophilia and that would be alright, but if you release the new chapter of the soap opera, your blog will be in trouble.
It’s time to place some pressure on Eduardo Cunha by sending e-mails. posting memes, calling his office, using all the democratic tools to convince him to back off from this operation.
The cost of the approval of such law to garantee even more privileges to Gloco and telcos in Brazil would be immense and of terrible consequences for Brazil. And for those who defend freedom of speech.
