    SOPA

    Post by Dark_wizzie on Wed Jan 18, 2012 5:12 pm

    Why has there not been a topic to discuss Stop Online Piracy Act?

    In protest, Wikipedia has "shut off" for a day. (Still can be used if you do some digging.) Google changed their sign to protest.


    My take is that it's too stupid to pass.

    I hear it is losing support very quickly from big name companies except Hollywood ones and there are major uprisings and protests over the SOPA bill.

    Sadly, there is bipartisan support for the bill in Congress and it will most likely pass despite very heavy opposition from the American people and some big companies. This site and Brian's Wolf3d Dome will be blocked which will mean I can't get to download any more mods. And we'll probably never chat with each other again.

    This is going to be the end of the internet as we know it. We're gonna need to build thousands of large new prisons because hundreds of millions of American people are gonna be living in them even for a such a petty charge.

    Brian should know about the recent SOPA news because a young British man is going to be extradited to the U.S. to face copyright infringement charges and serve 5 - 10 years in prison for something THAT IS NOT ILLEGAL IN HIS OWN DAMN COUNTRY... AND THE DAMN BILL HASN'T EVEN PASSED YET!

    All I know is if this bill passes and the cops come and take my family and I away, I'd rather die resisting than seeing my future crushed at the hands of the government and the movie industry. Expect mass killings and riots.

    With SOPA, who needs to follow the U.S. Constitution as it will violate:

    - 1st Amendment (freedom of speech, religion, and the press)
    - 4th Amendment (protection from illegal searches and seizures)
    - 5th Amendment (due process of law applicable to the Federal Government)

    Pretty much. Since 1998 they have tried to pass rules like that, never worked so far and I don't see it happening now either with this massive outcry, and rightfully so.

    I don't know about that ronwolf. Money talks louder than a person's voice now-a-days. The Motion Pictures Association of America and the RIAA are going in overdrive to force the Government to pass the SOPA bill.

    Obama already put that legislation on ice, which is FANTASTIC, but if Obama vetoes the bill (assuming it passes with strong bipartisan support) there may be enough votes to override it.

    This isn't a partisan issue as always, it's corruption.

    EDIT: I'm seeing on CNN that some lawmakers are abandoning their support of the SOPA bill. These online protests did the trick alright!

    I believe the internet spent more money collectively than Hollywood and those guys by a small percentage. I think it saw it on the news. Then again, it was FOX news. Really, Really Happy

    I've already known that ages ago, Ron. Clinton shouldn't have signed that Telecommunications Act back in the 1990s. It's what caused the news stations to be one sided. I was too young to remember much about the MSM in the 1990s, but I've heard the news stations were reporting news ONLY before the Act was signed into law.

    Unfortunately, we're going to have to live with all of this for a while. It's useless for us young ones in the U.S. to try and fix all this mess the older generations have caused right now.

    As corrupt politicians are nowadays and can't be trusted, I pray that future U.S. Congressmen in OUR generation have at the VERY LEAST a hair of sanity that current ones don't have and much more moderate and bipartisan.
