Haha....was just going to ask this. :-b


Buuuuuut.....will it? O:-)


no, seriously.. will it?

It will. Any copyrighted porn can be removed and the offending website can be shut down. Either keep updated on underground password-protected porn sites, be prepared to either pay for porn, or stick with free, uncopyrighted webcam rips and home videos.

seems awfully extreme.


Potentially, it could.

This video best explains the far-reaching implications SOPA/PIPA could have on the Internet:

We need SOPA to fight online piracy and protect American copyrights from foreign thieves!

Exactly. This is the absolute best proof that SOPA / PIPA is completely unnecessary. Due process might be inconvenient for copyright holders, but it definitely isn't something that should be tossed aside on a whim.

Inconvenient? Someone uploads a movie prior to the theatrical release which allows everyone to download and watch it before it releases, which costs the studio no telling how many millions of dollars. And the studio is just supposed to shrug at the "inconvenience" of not being able to get it stopped?

I don't agree with the language of SOPA, it is far too broad and needs to be re-written, but at the same time, something does need to be put in place to help combat piracy and copyright breach. To be clear, I do not support SOPA as written, but I do recognize that something needs to be done. If anyone thinks all is perfectly fine as is, they are as delusional as those who are trying to ram SOPA through in its current form.
I want to play a game. The rules are simple. All you have to do is sit here and talk to me. Listen to me. We haven't been properly introduced. My name is John.

They can get it stopped, the megaupload takedown shows exactly that. I won't feel bad for them in the slightest that they can't strip due process away from those they are accusing.
