If your site is based in america, they can shut it down entirely; effectively destroying life as we know it.

people please don't forget PIPA when focusing on SOPA as they are both exactly the same bills

also on a sidenote america's entertain industry's next target is paid media streaming services such as Itunes and Steam. just keep that in mind if they pass.

So...essentially all they are going to achieve is an humourless internet with by average 40%more porn (60% of the internet is already porn)...<---solid maths that. Dirty bastards are turning out like korea minus the dead "god like" leader (1 point to home team). wont this bill mean sites such as deviant art,media fire,soda head,damnlol etc are going to suffer?come to think of it facebook is a plethora of such "incriminating" profile pictures. What tha fuck are the government,and more importantly the president thinking!?!?!?!?!

Obviously, up the anus of whoever came up with the concept of SOPA.
they might be butt-hurt over financial loss, but just give them an inch of the ground and they'll try to control more shit than they should..just to get extra bit of profit that they initially had/recovered after block.

Living in Canada won't make much of a difference. Especially if other countries adopt this bill and start censoring their internet (more(coughcoughchina)).

Except you forgot the part where big companies like you just mentioned have the best security in the world and they will only get better security after this to prevent things like you mentioned from happening.

What good is your internet when 90% of the sites you visit are not there? International NGers, you should be shitting your freakin' pants right now due to the fact that not only will it affect you equally as much as most anyone else, you have absolutely no voice in whether it passes or not. One of the more frustrating things about this is how it's an internationally significant piece of legislation being controlled solely by the USA.

NATO should be diving down our fucking throats for this, but NATO is... well, NATO. Not really the type to do much of anything.

OpenNIC is not a proxy (those are too slow), it's an open DNS server. If the only thing that gets blocked is the domain name and not the IP, then I guess using a different DNS that doesn't get affected by US law (and I guess OpenNIC is one of those) would be a nice way to get around this issue.
Even if the .com domain name gets banned, imagine the possibilities of having a newgrounds.geek or newgrounds.bbs domain name!

Essentially this comes down to copyright holders not understanding that as technology changes, so too must your business model. Rather than adapt to the times, they're trying to find ways to strongarm everyone else into doing things the way they want them done. And that's a damn shame.

I am pretty sure this is going to hurt my life as well since:
A: I use images throughout the internet for my yt videos.
B: Hurt some of my songs as well (like my remixes)
C: NO MORE FUCKING MLP ON YT >:C

Yeah, this bill is as bad as the devils heart.
Fuck this bill will kill EVERYONE! Im pretty sure if it passes though, it will be swiftly removed since im sure people will be protesting the fuck out of congress and hell, anonomous will be all over the governments asses.

Btw, where the hell are they when you need them? Shouldn't they be doing something about this?

Words cannot describe how much I hate this bill.

I mean, yeah, it has good intentions, I understand. But why is it written in such a way that allows major damage to major websites? Why are the supporters of the bill so reluctant to face the criticisms and opponents instead of using it to improve on the bill? Do the people who like this bill even use the Internet?

And another thing I heard about this bill is that it was created to preserve the creativity of the industries and corporations. And if that's true, then how come the record labels/ film studios make all the money whereas the people who actually made it all possible (musicians, artists, writers, etc.) only gain a small percentage?

Even if it passes I doubt the law will last for long. The amount of people who participate in the user generated content sector of the website is extremely high, especially in the US.

If it were to pass there would be chaos.

Well said Tom. You rock.

This act will not reduce piracy, but rather give companies the power to close down any unwanted website... hell, a company might even pay someone to login to a website and upload illegal material just to shut it down.

This looks more like an infringement to the freedom of the internet; the only TRUE democratic medium.

Here is a list of people and companies supporting and opposing SOPA:

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h32 61/money

With the financial backing of companies like Sony, Nintendo, Disney, NFL, Comcast, Walmart, and Viacom (What loophole allows Nintendo and Sony to participate in our countries' affairs?), things are looking grim for our favorite sites...

It's going to be pretty difficult to boycott all these companies... I have Playstations, Nintendo consoles, my son's favorite show is on Disney, and we shop at Walmart once a week (or more)... I personally will not put any more money into these companies until some decisions are made...


uh huh...
