The American Conservative
American Patriot Friends Network
Friends of Liberty
Glen Beck - Surprising
such a conservative voice would be on CNN, but this guy has
a lot of interesting things to say about political candidates,
border issues, freedom in America, and more. It was after I
grew to like him that I found out he is Mormon.
Human Events Online
New Media Journal - This is an independent, conservative-leaning
site that gathers news and opinions from around the web. But
I hesitate to call it a news site, because they have a writing
staff and post their own editorials.
Political Party Poop
- Blog-format conservative site that is happy to take aim at
liberals and their inconsistencies. Very forceful assertions
against the Left, but also does criticize the Right.
The Power Vacuum
Right Wing News
The War Room
|RIAA, MPAA, Intellectual Property, P2P
Auto Gordian Knot
Boycott RIAA - Take
a stand against the recording industry. Very passionate, very
vocal, and in my humble opinion, very relevant. These guys are,
as the name says, strongly opposed to the tyrant, the RIAA.
Campaign for Open Digital
CD Media World
- Site that helps you know your online rights. Superb information.
P2P Software - List of P2P software, including some "darknet"
(or anonymous) ones.
Creative Commons -
A way to find pictures, sounds, text and video files, but I'm
all are legally free. Not just a way to find free content, but
also a way of life (or at least a way to share your work with
others in a free way). You've heard of copyright. This is copyleft.
- To quote the site, "Downhill Battle is a non-profit organization
working to support participatory culture and build a fairer
music industry." Lots of info and ways to to get involved.
- Del.icio.us links to pages exemplifying why DRM is not good
for the end user.
File Sharing Place
Free Network Project
- Strictly speaking, not a traditional P2P project. This is
more about building an anonymous and scalable network that allows
anyone to publish anything. I see this as the best hope of keeping
the internet free (and freedom of speech available), if our
government (USA) continues to strip away our rights.
eBook Share - ebook
torrent site. Mostly tech books.
FAQ - Common questions answered by Phoenix Labs for people
worried about being accused of copyright infringement.

search site and P2P news. Currently being sued for their actions.

files, either in public domain or a license allowing free distribution.
Only downloadable by bittorrent.
Make a Backup
Open Rights Group
- This group attemps to raise awareness of digital rights abuse
and extend civil liberties to the digital world. I think they
do very important work.
The Pirate Bay - Torrent
Problem of Copyright
Torrents - For those who don't mind older movies and such,
this site is a directory of films that have gone into the public
domain. They are downloadable with a bit
torrent client. These are usuall fast downloads, despite
the size of the file. However, broadband is the best way to
go. Interesting choices available for those who are interested.
Industry vs. the People - Written on a blog, this site has
tons of information about . . . well, the recording industry
and their lack of respect for their customers.
Stands for Redistribution in Graphics Has Got To Stop. This
is not a group, but a site with which to educate one's self
about copyright law and respecting the works of others. Focuses
on graphics, but can be applicable in many other ways.
Torrent Scan - Search
multiple torrent search sites from one location.
of Infringement Letters - Get a letter from your ISP saying
you are infringing? Get the facts and know just what type of
letter was sent to you.
Copyright is Wrong
Zeropaid - Not sure what's
the best P2P client? Want to try something new? Explore the
scene? Chat about the current issues? Read news about the current
issues? This site has a little of everything.
