[10:10pm] Joe: It grants the US government to go after companies for encryption in the name of stopping child abuse. Thing is it goes way to far.

[10:18pm] Joe: Agreed [10:19pm] jokeefe: Like with FOSTA, this law will likely make it harder to go after child abusers [10:19pm] Sayyida: 10 min left gentlemen [10:20pm] jokeefe: Do we want to oppose the EARN IT act? [10:20pm] Bosun: I think it is relatively simple, a virus emergency should not be cover for taking away citizen's rights/ [10:21pm] Bosun: We want to appose restrictions on encryption.
