SOPA: The Bill That Wants to Break Your Internet

Post by Devil on Thu Nov 24, 2011 7:46 am

Short Version:

Well there have always been movements trying to censure the internet and the contents that can be downloaded and visualized.

How is this different? There's a movement called SOPA that is trying to censure the content (including videos, images) that can be seen on sites like youtube.
Ex: a homemade video made of you playing Call of Duty on your pc.

Though this is happening in the United States at the present time, and even though the chances of a bill like this to actually be aproved are slim, I think this concerns us not only as gamers, but as internet users.

This is not funny at all, but as Europeans we have not many ways to prevent SOPA passing... Join strikes and educate people.

well something has to be done about all the awful pirates, and if SOPA is the only way to stop it, then it is fine by me.



but I do feel bad for the kittens.

Ofc I did, just like I asked permission to use my avatar picture which is only right thing to do. I would feel bad if I just took something that other people had made, and used it for my own purposes without asking or paying for it. It just wouldn't feel right.
