SOPA and PIPA update

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 23, 2011, 5:53 PM


I haven't made any updates on the SOPA and PIPA bill lately.

I have found few videos that puts things into perspective.  :bulletgreen: watch here www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhwuXN…

I am very wary of this other video people have been linking me, Very big claims, if they are true I will rage so hard..... :bulletgreen: Watch here www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJIuYg…
(The guy who did the first video linked did a response to this second video :bulletgreen: watch here www.youtube.com/watch?v=HriNzs… )

Also Ashton Kutcher made a blog about SOPA and PIPA too? check it here. aplusk.posterous.com/87693122


Looool if it passes... just use this addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef…

"It's because of the mentality that everybody thinks SOPA won't pass that no one does anything to stop and this is probably how SOPA may be passed. Even if you don't think it will pass, make some contribution to prevent the law from passing so that at least you have done something instead of just letting someone else fight it for you." ~GlassJewel

if NDAA was passed, I'm sure this can be passed, and I hope it doesn't :/

Maybe THIS aught to bring to light something that's rather devious..............

If it is true............. but the evidence is convincing

I posted a news article a little while back, based on this same issue and some of the problems along with it. [link] . It was hot for a few days, then quietly disappeared into yesterday's news. There's a lot of great comments and actual discussion through out it's comments, but if you read through all the comments you'll also see a lot of apathy, a lot of "the government won't allow it, so I'm not worried", a lot of "If it passes, I'll protest", and a lot of "This is just paranoid talk. It won't happen."
It seems common through a lot of articles about issues like this. Scary, though, is the fact that we've heard that all before. It's a shame that so many people sill sit back and say "It won't happen because it's not right" and truly believe it. That is exactly how bodies in power bring unpopular bills into effect: they either bundle them into bills that people do want, or they just wait out the storm. Each day that passes, more and more people assume this topic is dead, more people fall into a false sense of security, and less people pay attention to the issues at hand concerning this. Eventually, as new topics dominate the news, this will be brought back to the surface and may even be passed with very few watchdogs even noticing.
"It's because of the mentality that everybody thinks SOPA won't pass that no one does anything to stop and this is probably how SOPA may be passed. Even if you don't think it will pass, make some contribution to prevent the law from passing so that at least you have done something instead of just letting someone else fight it for you." ~GlassJewel" is absolutely right. And thank you for bringing this topic back into the attention once again.

Well, sort of. They actually helped write it, because they got themselves a special exemption to it based on their business classification.

Their withdrawal of support is just a hollow P.R. move.
