Another SOPA journal

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 18, 2012, 11:11 AM



Browsing /a/, /v/, and /co/, I remember seeing this crap weeks ago, but it keeps coming back as they keep trying to push it through, and since now more people are bringing it up, it's getting more serious.

Above is a nifty video :iconcommanderctc: showed me. I'm not one for sitting and watching these types of things, but it's actually pretty interesting, and I'd like you to just take a little time out to give it a view.

I'm all for stopping piracy (or at least certain ways of it), but I think this is a stupid way of going about it. If you want to help out, there's probably multiple ways, but I think Google's thing is the simplest I can suggest off the top of my head: www.google.com/landing/takeact…

Quick question: supposing we do wind up with a bill that forces us to block "unoriginal content," do you suppose the entertainment industry itself will adhere to it? Because I can name about a dozen medical dramas, cop shows, and action movies with retired-special-froces-protagonists that need to be pulled if so. :P I find it ironic that many of the people pushing for the bill often fail to create anything original themselves, in any case.

I'm either way. I guess I'm just a little paranoid since it's not dead yet and keeps popping up, and big names are siding with it.

Even if it DOES pass I am gonna say it's going to go as well as the American Alcohol probation did x]

But for serious, it is a risk, and one that we shouldn't take lightly. That's how bills like this pass.

People don't like taking their chances like that.

It looks like ALOT of support for SOPA and PIPA is falling thanks to the protest of many powerful sites and their "Blackouts" (some big supporters pulled their names from the bill) . I read an article that said both were being shelved so that it could be revised later to more accurately solve the problem of piracy without damaging the freedom of the internet. Now all we have to worry about is how they are going to be revised and hope they aren't going to try this stupid idea again.

I love how they pass a bill that is completely against the American constitution, where they can bust in your home, label a homeland terrorist and take you away. Nobody bats an eye. They try to pass a bill so it "might" not allow you to fanart, and shit storm.

Kinda like the idea of stopping piracy on the internet, but as you've said, the way they're doing it is just stupid.

I actually don't like that particular video, it doesn't present the argument in a very good way. Yes, companies are hypocrites, what of it? That is literally the blood that flows through their veins and because of that does not present a valid argument against the SOPA and PIPA laws. A company can do with it's property as it wishes, including distributing it for free. The real concern and how we should be approaching this while we contact senators and representatives is the power for censorship and control over markets that this gives large companies. A good example of this would be when several artists produced a megaupload song and Time Warner had it taken down for copyright infringement on youtube despite the fact that there was no copyright infringement, they simply did not want support for megaupload to spread.

John "Totalbiscuit" Bain did a great video about this actually,

Well SOPA is a stupid idea, though most of the times I just take a sit back and wait approach but sometimes I do stand up and voice my opinion and SOPA is one of those stupid things I don't like and am against.

Also, I only heard about the whole thing once. But now...

The whole thing kind-of reminds the song "Video killed the radio star." but " SOPA killed the internet star."

Download Procaster from the site. You open the program, sign in, and the program lets you start streaming, manage settings, chat, etc.

There's two settings: screen and game. Depending on the game, you can stream from in the game (you'll see an icon appear in the game window). Screen basically just streams what's going on your monitor, and you can use that for games that don't support the game setting.

So,while I'm playing StarCraft,and icon should appear in the corner of the screen (I play SC in full screen). The other way I didn't got. ^^;
