DISCUSSION: Strengthening copyright law means “everyone stop linking now!”. Using passwords means “It’s up to every site to protect their own stuff”.
So, you should look for something that involves banning something in the first case, and relying on individual responsibility in the second.
- Allowing everyone to use a facility doesn’t seem like “banning linking”.
- The first part of this is good. The second part should have been “encouraging drug users to use the drugs safely/encouraging people to individually protect themselves from drugs”.
- CORRECT. This sounds pretty good. Linking/web copyright is the sport. The stronger laws would prohibit linking entirely (without a license). Whereas passwords are methods that individual sites can use to protect themselves – just like safety gear is a tool to protect yourself.
- Passwords have nothing to do with enforcement of copyright laws. Enforcement is something the government does, whereas passwords are put in place by individual site owners.
- This answer describes the difference between an open website and a password protected website. But we were supposed to make an analogy to new copyright laws.
