SOPA = US Government taking away the internet, from everyone

1 emerald 435 replies 3,165 views | started 12/17/2011 11:32 am by Palaeos
The US government is currently trying to pass a bill which essentially will result in the internet being a useless invention, they will make it were a site with the potential to have illegal links or submissions can be taken down. That would also include this site, youtube, even places like facebook or twitter. Now, as i really dont have any personal experience in anything that would require me to actually have a life i shall refer you to someone I have subscribed to on youtube who happens to be British and have some legal experience and knowledge.



Also, if you are an american citizen please click the link below and send the pre-written E-mail to your congressmen (you can edit it if you want as well)

http://tinyurl.com/writetocongress

And to those of you who don't live in America who think this doesn't affect you, it does. many of the most popular sites (Youtube for one) are hosted in the states and so if this bill passes it will pretty much be kicked around by the government and proceed to not exist.

Thanks for reading and i hope they shoot all the idiots who thought this stupid thing up.

If anyone has anything constructive and/or on-topic feel free to add you thoughts, just please no flamewars.

(apologies if I in anyway shape or form offended or annoyed anyone on this site with my save the internet rant)

Gah. I'm getting sick of this thread. People are fighting on completely off-topic debates and like some people have said previously, SOPA is now delayed. Go ahead and make this thread again in 2012 when the bill goes back up for voting.

If your referring to the guy who posted the thread then they are actually trying to get the bill passed.

also, this thread has nothing to do with communism, look it up before being ignorant, yes as an american you should pretty much be opposed to it out of american pride and the like but at least know what you are talking about when you go off saying this that and the other are going to turn something into a communist thing

Communism isn't limited to taking away freedom, it's publicly controlling a nation under a strict set of rules that mandate a certain way of life. Pretty much it's governmental bullying, forcing people to do only what is allowed, and making them do it a certain way.

another problem i see with the gov doing this, is that if this goes through they will never be able to take away all of the sites that you can get the music from because most of the sites are not mainly for mp3 files they are for every thing.

Why are people even talking about this? As long as we don't have any copyrighted things (like a minecraft.jar) we shouldn't be worrying about this site!

Wrong there. There are hundreds of skins of characters from games/movies, mods based off of other games, and texture packs from games/movies. That's alot of copyrighted material.

Guys... even if this does ever pass, Google cannot be shut down. It is a search engine, which means it basically points to copyrighted sites. Google itself doesn't host any copyrighted content so it isn't breaking any rules.

The voting was today. IT FAILED its gone for a year.
They try this every year.
THIS IS SO LATE ITS NOT FUNNY

Shut the fuck up. First of all, that is factually incorrect. Second, the word fag is offensive to homosexals and bisexuals and is something that violates every single ideal that this site is for. You need to apologize.

While "fag" is offensive, so is f**k. You should apologize as well, we have minors on this site.

I do apologize. I am sorry.

It's delayed for a month. Not a year. Voting will continue in January. Consider looking it up before posting.

^ this, politicians are pretty much guaranteed to be stupid as elections are really just popularity contests and therefore corrupted

It is sad really. Greed and corruption run rampant. This is why I think senators and congressmen and any other political figure should only be able to serve a set number of turns before they are kicked out.

I'm not reading anything anyone else has already said...
I disagree with this bill first off.
But, in the video, the guy states that they have the potential to take down major websites such as facebook, youtube, twitter and so on. This doesn't mean they will.
Honestly, if they were to do something as STUPID as block facebook, the whitehouse would get torched by 5,000,000 teenagers and college kids.....
Not to mention youtube....
Blocking any of these websites will f*** the us up forever
