Most impressive about Marco civil is therefore the participatory process of writing it. “More than 800 substantive contributions were received, including comments, e-mails, alternative drafts and references” [wikipedia] If the HFP blogger is right, it will be voted on Monday. He also refers to different opinions about Marco Civil. Nobody will be surprised that big net sharks are against it and only argument they can claim is that they won’t be able to earn as much money as they want to :) And that it will destroy local economy, of course. I don’t know how it looks like in Brazil but here in Poland we haven’t seen too much taxes from FB. One more argument is on the table, so called balkanization of the Internet, threat of splinter the world web. I’m not able to assess whether in Marco Civil actually hides such danger. But I don’t know either if cyberbalkanization will be bad for users – would it be worse than americanization that we have now?
