Already signed. This is some bs. The pretense sounds great until you realize companies are just going to use this to censor any blog, forum, whatever that just happens to not have good things to say about them. Fuck 'em.

I'll be fucked, Yobeat will be fucked, the big three might squeak by if they just keep cupping the balls, but if you like freedom you need to be voiced on this. We're not Egypt.

Something funny...

When BA first Tweeted this link, I immediately thought, "He's definitely going to be the first to be fucked if this passes".

Done. What the hell is this world coming to? Why must those with power always flex and crush anything that they consider "wild" or "unregulated". It's only a matter of time before you can't even take a walk around the block before notifying authorities and filling out a 10 page form so the proper documentation is in place.

Makes me so damn angry...

yup, signed it too. that is some serious bull shit right there. Freedom of speech includes the internet. Sites will be censored based on the discretion of a few individuals that will most likely be heavily influenced by lobbyists and bribes. I cant wait to see what anon does about this internet censorship shit.

This is govt doing private companies' bidding.

Fuck that.

That said, a similar bill passed through the senate earlier this year, and is on hold because of the potential to "muzzle" speech. That bill, the Protect IP bill, is less intrusive than this one. So if that one is on hold in the Senate, this should definitely stall in the Senate as well since it goes even further.

I'm not saying its DOA, but that last bit is promising.

Darrell Issa, every Democrat's favorite Republican, says SOPA has no chance of passing.

Darrell Issa: Online Piracy Act Has No Chance of Passage | The Wrap Media

Quote:
California Rep. Darrell Issa has told The Hill newspaper that the House of Representative’s Stop Online Piracy Act has no chance of passage.

Congress, the leading Republican lawmaker, said, is “realizing there are so many unintended consequences that they can’t just use Google as a piñata and bash on it here.”

There is, he said, "a very broad coalition from far left to far right who realize this will hurt innovation, something we can't afford to do. And there are other ways to accomplish what they say is their goal."

Ronald Reagan once said:

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
