Heard about SOPA

Post by RBA on Wed Jan 18, 2012 10:55 am

That a bill that US want to pass to control internet. I'm pretty sure that you can find information on the net about it. Anyway, if that happen, I stop using internet. Call my provider and cancel my internet. I'm not gonna let a greedy/control manic country tell me what to do and how to do it.

Because, it's gonna affect all of the internet. Not only US based sites.

EDIT: To protest, I won't be online as of now until Thursday.

SOPA and PIPA are the two that we are up against, but it's mostly SOPA that would affect the internet the most. It'll censor popular sites like YouTube, but it has tight restrictions that would censor even sites with no infringement. Not to mention this would totally override the fair use law we currently have.

I completely know about that.

American want to control the world. And the intrawebs too. If this happens, I'll give you my adios and you'll never see me again on the net. Sad, but heh. What would be the use of a restricted internet for people anyway? None.

Oh man, the Internet would be a lonely place if SOPA and PIPA pass.

Here you go, this'll teach you alot about SOPA.

Also, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

MY WIKIPEDIA IS BLACKED OUT, this world will kill governments if SOPA get's through T.T

To get through, let it load, before finishing the load cancel the loading to get the information on wikipedia.

Going to ask my mom if we can move to Canada if this law is passed. I heard it's nicer there ^.^

Re: Heard about SOPA

Post by Key720 on Sun Jan 22, 2012 9:37 am

Everyone has probably heard about what happened to megaupload. Here's an article titled, 'Two lessons from the Megaupload seizure'. I post the most interesting snippet in my perspective after skimming it.

We don’t need any law expressly stating that we can imprison people without charges: we do it when we want without that law.

That’s more or less what happened with the SOPA fight. It’s true that website-seizures-without-trials are not quite as lawless as indefinite detentions, since there are actual statutes conferring this power. But it nonetheless sends a very clear message when citizens celebrate a rare victory in denying the Government a power it seeks — the power to shut down websites without a trial — only for the Government to turn around the very next day and shut down one of the world’s largest and best-known sites. Whether intended or not, the message is unmistakable: Congratulations, citizens, on your cute little “democracy” victory in denying us the power to shut down websites without a trial: we’re now going to shut down one of your most popular websites without a trial. - Read more

Well, as somebody wrote (but I can't remember the site of that article), Obama and Co. Were against the bill. So, to just show they don't need it, they did this. Yeah, they've done something bad in order to stop something worst. And anyway, that's just gonna be like Napster in the time. They'll close it and 10 new ones will rise out of nowhere.

Did you saw any changes on the internet lately? This has been passed 4 months ago... Didn't see much changes...

Yeah, here in Canada, this was signed 4 months ago. Next step is the European Union. And if they sign, well, let's just say a lot of countries from the union are harbors to pirate sites. Anyway, I did sign too. Free internet is good internet.

My guess is that they'll actually shut down a pirate site once in a while, but they'll go after sites that are "bad", Wikileak is an example of bad. Free thinking and freedom of speech is not really liked the govs of the world... Well, mostly by the US gov, but they "control" the other govs that are alligned with them, so...
