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...

Also, in case you didn't think NDAA was scary enough:

The US can send you into the hands of another country

Imagine how much money the underground slave market could make from a steady stream of fresh Americans. Think 'Hostel' and 'Taken'...

Just saying, there's a fair amount of corruption in every country in the world, and no one is gonna give a fuck about taking care of another countries' citizens. Might as well make a profit off of them.

I actually had to make my way out of the wood work to post on this. First, I personally do not understand how one group. mainly the MPAA and other copyright agencies have so much sway over the United States government. Seriously do they have a picture of every congress person having sex with a goat or something.....wait nevermind, I dont want to know. This is only going to to get worse, and worse and it is just the first step in government censorship. Yes, you heard me, we weep for the people of China and India when it comes to internet censorship but we as citizens of North America are now opening ourselves up to the same treatment.

Eventually we will have to go where the governement allows us to go, looking at governement authorized porn, cause lets face it, our economies would collapse under the stress of not being able to wack-off because our wives no longer want to touch us sexually anymore. There will be panic and looting in the streets. PANDAMONIUM PEOPLE

I think this is a childish game. They need to stop hiding behind their terms like: democrat, republican, communist, capitalism, etc.

I also think that this appears to be just one fucked up problem; but this ball of ignorance, that these shady figures are building, is going to weave a horrible fate onto this world with their obsessive power and lust for feeding their voids [that are never satisfied]. Not only will it severely limit freedom of speech, threaten 95% of the internet, waste more prison space with people who were punished over completely benign reasons -- only to be deemed a serious violation -- when there are blatantly real criminals out there who actually pose a serious threat. These monsters who are using us as puppets for their monopoly games, is going to heighten unlawful acts. People are going to resort to terrible violence, and a hellfire of boundless proportions..

These monsters are prisoners to the monsters in their mind, and we are prisoners to them.

They are consciously trying to put a leash on all of us, but in the process, they are also taking off the leash of our negative side. People won't be able to contain themselves, and this negative side will anhilate their positive side.

They are going to unleash hellfire if this ever passes. I assure you. Our emotions are not to be played with. People will be more tense. People will be easily set off. This world will become a an imprisonment of anger, ignorance, fear, lust, etc.

DO NOT LET THIS PASS. 80% of what I've said may not make sense to you, but heed my word. The human is both the warrior and the monster.. and if anything were to provoke this negative side of them.. all hell /will/ break lose; literally.


You do not make examples, you make excuses; you do not solve problems, you shift problems; you do not stand behind your statements, you stand behind your stasis.
