Subject: Suggestions for the Internet

I've seen many sites shut down because of threats of legal actions by the MPA and such. Shutting down sites that offer to show you how to play a song on guitar is ridiculous. Making people stop posting their own original films featuring certain music is ridiculous. That's the same thing as slapping the population and taping its mouth shut. The Internet was made to facilitate the flow of information and knowledge. Right now, the Internet is being bullied around by these greedy, money-seeking organizations who need to be given morals. These companies should be apologizing.

My first suggestion for running the Internet: Do not let this faucet of information get plugged up.

My second suggestion is to just have better protection for the people involving cyber crimes.
Most of the time, these criminals get away without leaving a trail behind to follow. If there
was a way to have better security with minimum risk of liberties, I would greatly appreciate it.
It would save millions of dollars from fraud and losses.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my suggestions, and I look forward to seeing them implemented in the future.

Sincerely,

Vinh Duc Nguyen
