i doubt it, the SOPA is intended to use DNS blocking, so any website on any domain in any part of the world can be blocked, thank shit i live in Canada and the piratebay is in sweden.

So has anyone checked the legality of congress passing a bill that affects websites from other countries. I think it's either a gray area or it is an actual problem. It's probably nothing but if that is the case then if this does pass an apeal can be made to the judicial branch to overturn the bill.

I got no idea, but this passing bullshit law game needs to stop. I've had enough of congress doing this every year. Either the current people in there go, or I go, and I am not leaving. As much as I love being in the USA, there's just times when you're furious with the government, and this is one of those times.

The United States is becoming more of a totalitarian democracy every day. Soon enough history will repeat itself, the President and its fat cat senators say that they've been elected by God. we'll live only to serve the corporate shit heads who only care about money just like the hierarchy in England hundreds of years ago.

Would you believe a fat woman saying she is think? Why would you believe a state that abuses the people, and make a lower class, saying they are communist? There for communism has never been proven to work for there has been not TRUE communist state.

Yes the Nazi party did lost to help the people, but what else did they do?
Did they have laws that where abused to take away the rights of jews, and sympathizers, through taking down their bizz? Laws that support bizz, more than the rights of the people, HAS PROVEN to not work, and has PROVEN to lead to oppression. What laws are USA trying to pass?

Ok so i barely understand how any of this works and don't understand why they are doing because i haven't looked into it much. all i did read about it is because of piracy. All i know is that it is simply bullshit.

Also isn't it a little bit hypocritical when the country that came up with Home of the brave, Land of the free are trying to block and delete as much of the internet as possible.

I found a video that explains by the supporter of sopa want it to go through

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJIuYgIvK sc&feature=g-all-f&context=G2740a10FAAAA AAAACAA

they want it to go through because they endorsed the software that created all this piracy.

we need some good portal entries to raise awareness and get people to fight against it
to stop them from censoring the internet

i am sure the Electronic Frontier Foundation is doing its best
but it needs people to show that they hate sopa

public protests maybe?

even better turn out if you search "PIPA"

Can't do that, if he leaves it alone for ten days it automatically passes, unless the session of congress ends before then.

I wish I could do something to help, too bad I'm under 18, living out of the US and I doubt I could make a convincing speech to the congress.

I guess this answers one thing I've wondered about: Tom is well-off, but nowhere near in the same league as Larry Page, Sergey Brin or Mark Zuckerberg. If he were, he wouldn't need to write a SOPA post. He'd simply buy a bunch of Congresscritters and get the damn thing overturned.

If you are really disturbed by this bill, just join or support EFF, demandprogress or a pirate party near you.
All of these groups are depending on people (for those that got some time) and donations (for those that got some money) for pushing such issues forward.
I'm grateful that Tom posted his view about this terrible bill. Probably he will donate some money to some of the named organizations, but likely his post was at least as worthy.
If this community of artists would come together and to inform the public with their works about the issues with these bills, it certainly would make a change.

The Congress sure is filled up with dysfunctional brainless idiots. Can't they think of a more accurate law where it only targets the ones that are giving away all that unlicensed, infringing material? I'm certain they do not have brains.

America.

Most countries might follow USA and this stupid law, just to be cool with them.

They're not idiots. They are sold-out whores. If you believe their stated reasons for doing things they might seem like idiots, but those stated reasons are just lies to distract the masses (most of whom can't tell the difference between stupid and smart anyway).

If you look at who their big campaign contributors are, follow the money, ask yourself "Who benefits?" and ignore the bullshit that spews out of their mouths, every bill they pass makes perfect sense.

Not stupid. Traitorous, greedy and corrupt, but FAR from stupid.

We've been under a dictatorship since 1980 -- well, 1969 really, but that unfortunate Watergate thing left it in shambles through the last half of the 'seventies. Americans were just very, very slow to wake up to it. I can't say most have yet, either.

It really isn't surprising this is happening in America. Congress and the White House are simply extensions of the boardroom. Though..... so is Harper's government.

The Canadian people are already fighting the battle against internet censorship and Telecom abuse of consumers against the very regulatory bodies that are supposed to protect them. For those Canadians interested, I would strongly recommend looking up OpenMedia.

They are currently working to fight Harper's spying bills and if anything like SOPA ever came to Canada, I'm sure they would be ready to fight against it too.
