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:…

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.
