0. Get corporate membership with EFF.
1. Identify all applications with user-generated content.
2. Move all associated domains to a non-US based registrar.
3. Migrate DNS, web serving and other critical services to non-US based servers.
4. Migrate yourself to a non-US controlled country.
I'm sorry for US sites and users. Your government is hell-bent on turning the internet into a read-only device like TV, easily regulated and controlled. The population will be required to sit quietly and keep their eyes glued on the screen so they don't miss the ads, with any infringers deemed terrorists and pedophiles and thus deserving of summary punishment by DHS squads.
Hopefully the internet will route around the damaged segment, and the rest of us can continue to enjoy the amazing interactivity it has brought our society.
You can see the list of governments whose policies is controlled by USA with the signatories of ACTA.
Their beauty is not only in their read-only nature, but also in the fact that their number and content can be controlled.
Losing control of the narrative means the end of the narrative.
In our case, the concept of centralized power is dying, because the tales that justify it are dying in unwatched TV programs and unread newspapers.
Unfortunately, their dying will take some time.
Fortunately, any measure taken to save a dying narrative hasten its end.
1. Set up your company outside of the US.
2. Don't keep a bank account in the same country that your company is in.
3. Don't have customers in the same country that your country is in or where your bank account is.
4. Don't live in the country where your company, bank account or customers are.
5. Don't live in the same time zone as your in-laws.
I live in Thailand (for 13 years now) and have a company in Singapore. We are opening companies in Laos this year then Cambodia and then Burma over the next two years. My Bank Accounts are in Hong Kong. I try to find customers in any country other than those listed above, and the States.
Bandwidth is better out here than in most places in the States. And hardware is cheaper because you're buying closer to the source. And as long as you aren't living in Singapore, Hong Kong or Toyko, the cost of living is far cheaper than in the States.
This is not as difficult as it might seem. It's great living out here, and I would encourage everyone to do the same.
BTW our latest startup is an infrastructure for the semantic Web and about as cutting edge as you could hope for, so don't whine about how you can only do your startup in Silicon Valley. The future is here, not in the States.
A tax audit is crippling enough for business. Registrars like GoDaddy are exposed to a huge vulnerability in the form they don't know exactly with whom they do business. All you need is a credit card.
Much as I like my country (Uruguay), I know we'd cave in faster than New Zealand did with Kim Dotcom.
China might not be US-controlled, but they have their own issues. And a smaller country means it's probably going to be bullied by the US. Maybe Switzerland? (that does sound like a nice place to live :) ).
Plus the skiing's great here :)
Where would one relocate to? Only real options appear to be a .ru domain and location.
I love it!
good night, and good luck.
