Or, since they think their law will rule the planet, how about the US/Canada create a law against censorship or mandatory content filtering, with exactly the same penalty for EU companies that they want for the rest of the planet. They want to fine everybody? Ok, anybody who enacts their law gets fined by everybody else.

You owe us $, well you us us $ also. We’ve increased it to $$, well so have we. We’ll throw your CEO’s in jail, so will we (though I’m not sure if the average citizen wouldn’t approve of both being thrown in jail) :slight_smile:

You can still have GeoCities.
