U.S.A Congress trying to pass Protect I.P bill!

Postby J Starbuck88 » Mon Nov 21, 2011 11:39 am

One of my friends who lives in the states just brought this to my attention (I'm not sure if anyone's talking about this already on here or if this is even in the right section) but it basically means that if this bill is passed then sites like facebook, twitter and youtube and even QOL could be shut down for Copyright infringement

This guy Jeremy Jahns explains it better then me

but USA people when voting day comes say NO! to the Protect I.P bill

I was just going to post about this whole matter. More info here http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/17 ... t-is-sopa/
I am from Canada but this just might affect so many.

Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I am quite nervous about this as well.
Apparently Peter Gabriel is fighting this too. Let's hope these laws will not happen!

If it does happen, it will affect freedom of speech in a big way. I dread even thinking it could go ahead.

SOPA and PIPA are a damage to the freedom of speech! After the blackout, now the hosting site Megaupload was closed by FBI and now the Anonymous are taking revenge. more than 5600 hackers are putting websites of some supporters of the measures off. FBI, Warner, Universal, the organizations for the copyrights of films and music, department of justice... all down.
BBC within 15 minutes to talk about the attacks
