    Stand together against SOPA

    Post by Scudman_Slayer on Thu Jan 19, 2012 7:36 pm

    there has been this little thing called SOPA which consist in fighting against piracy from what i've gathered

    however there's a problem

    they intend to take down EVERY GOD DAMN GAMING website with customer made features like Youtube and a lot of websites and forums including this one because they think they're protecting people or something
    i don't know i just know we have to stand together against it

    here's a video with details

    (i don't know where i should've puted this :/ so if a moderator can move it to somewhere where its better i'd apreciate it)

    Closing Youtube? Lol. What are they trying to solve for Pirating? Do the Youtube people have instructions how to Pirate stuff, as they have instructions in order to build and do stuff in youtube? Is their a link to Pirated Games? If so, then their is no reason to close it, since the links will be useless once these pirating Groups are closed. Even more so, the Gaming Websites are less than worry to do such Pirating. Even more so, it helps interaction of gamers instead of making it a private thing (as the Japanese are known for. They prefer their session private compared to that of the Americans, as I have seen). It is stupid. Yes, close the damn Piraters. Youtube and Game Websites? Stupid People need a paddle at the head. Knock some sense to their minds from such nonsense.

    If they close Youtube, 5% of my life will be gone. But I think I will survive...

    I won't survive and its not because youtube is woven deep in my life (it isn't) it's the principle of the bill and what it would mean, its a disgusting idea and I feel sorry for anyone who isn't appalled and angry at even the idea of this.

    I'm sorry acidic but they DO have instructions on how to get cracked games...
    The idea itself is awful, shutting down any website that is even suspected of copyright infringement? I think the government should not control the internet like this or in any way, this is where free speech thrives and as soon as we lose this, a core value of America dies.
    I also think this is just another example of how the US government is influenced far too heavily by the corporations, not the people.

    SOPA would give the government way to much power over something that they shouldn't be able to have any power over in the first place. I've been protesting this since I first heard about it. DOWN WITH SOPA!

    Wow, I feel redundant now, I just posted a new thread about SOPA and PIPA. The good news is their popularity in the HOR is going down now.

    The United States Congress has denied any consideration of SOPA. The bill has been shelved, and those who proposed it have withdrawn.

    Victory, for now, goes to the internet and its peoples.

    Yay, Ser Witson. yay, the US Congress. yay, for the internet, I say. A freedom of choice in this socialist world is the best thing that is their to choose from. Variety is secure, and choice is plentiful still.

    It'll be back up in a few years. They try and do this nearly every election. Its only a matter of time before the a similar law is passed.
