SOPA

Postby Natalya » Sat Dec 24, 2011 1:36 am

Heard about it? It is the plague that congress seeks to unleash upon the internet. It would (probably) destroy YouTube, 4chan, and maybe even BrikWars despite our best efforts. Basically it's a stupid law that Hollywood and friends are trying to pass to prevent copyright infringement, but really they are a bunch of greedy assholes who don't seem to understand that we won't watch movies in a theatre because they are $12 and they fucking suck since they are devoid of inspiration and meaning. [/soap box]

tl;dr -- If you get the chance, call your congressperson and be like "don't vote for SOPA" and yea that's about it.

Do we have a second opinion on this one? It seems to be something that doesn't quite communicate it's intentions as well as could be imagined, due to the massive fuckfest that's jumped on it from debut.

Let me put it this way... If a media company THINKS a website MIGHT be infringing on one of their stupid copyrights, the company can be like "yo, shut those suckers down," and boom -- your website gets erased from the face of the internet without so much as a court hearing. All the power. None of the accountability. This is like turning the media into the police.

Reminds me of TOSERS from Arby n the Chief.

In all seriousness though, it really is perhaps the most retarded thing I've seen. Passing something like this would be similiar IMO to taking away free speech, which is pretty much what it is trying to do.

Sopa = soup (in Portuguese)

Eat your damn soup, what are you, a bunch of 4-year olds?

This is why pes should not be allowed on the internet, call your local congressman and tell them to pass the motion to have all pes related information banned from the internet!

The governments time would be better spent wiping Portugal off the face of the earth.

In Portugal's defense, they did kill alot of Africans back in the day.

But yes, blow up Portugal and make Brazil unnukeable.

Also, the Supreme Court and ACLU will not let SOPA pass. They've already tried this bill before under two different names and the Supreme Court shot it down both times.
