What do you think of the "SOPA " stuff?

Hello!! (My first post in 2012 @[email protected])

Hey, what do you think of this possible law? I've realized that some webpages have been shut down, I'm not sure whether it is due to that law.

I must confess that I sometimes support piracy (as long as it doesn't affect Italo Dance) Yeah, I know that it is not ethical Shock

There's another post by CFE, I guess, called "Are pirates good people?"

There are some opinions about this stuff, hehe

Actually some websites, such as the English Wikipedia, shut down for 24 hours to show their opposition to SOPA and PIPA. Those bills, which essentially give the U.S.government the power to censor the Internet, are right now before U.S. congress and will get voted on later this month. If those bills pass websites such as IDP could be blocked in the U.S. because of the links to Youtube, Soundcloud, and other media sites. That would be truely devastating. Shock
Looking at the supporters (Motion Picture Association of America, the Recording Industry Association of America, Macmillan US, Viacom, the AFL, NBA and NHL, Nike, and Ford) and opponents (AOL, EBay, Facebook, Google, IAC, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Twitter, Yahoo and Zynga) of those bills, one can see what this is all about. Big entertainment business screwing with us people so they can continue to produce their big budget movies and pay millions of $$ to people throwing balls.

As the article said "they did not need SOPA".

It's just another proof that Americans are crazy Tongue
SOPA sure is the work of a mindless copyright holder not knowing what to do, but if they pass the bill I assume it will only affect American IP addresses, so I don't care that much what you guys do in the big pond, but it sure should not be passed imo.

It hasn't, it's just a coincidence that its shutdown collides with the SOPA discussion, according to FBI.

megaupload.com was shut down by FBI, the "hacker" group 'Anonymous' responded by issuing a DDoS attack on the website of FBI and several other institutions because they disliked the decision.

A bunch of European countries including Poland signed the ACTA, which is supposed to be similar to SOPA.

ACTA is just as bad, potentially, sure. But it will probably be harder to manage because it's international law which is far less effective than national law as SOPA was.
