Give 'em Hell Boys

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 24, 2013, 7:03 PM


Despite being shot down by an enormous majority of people and petitions, once again government officials are attempting to pass SOPA. More specifically, a section of the bill that focuses on copyright. The language used in the bill is very loose, and in the end could end up dramatically hampering the way you enjoy the internet today. If this bill were to be passed, content creators who are "guilty" of copyright infringement (ie Lets Players, commissioners, authors, etc) would be charged as felons if they do not immediately cease production and remove all traces of their past work. Please help show these government officials that they in no way shape or form can force this down our throats by signing this petition:

petitions.whitehouse.gov/petit…

Please pass this on to anyone you can. It may not seem like they're taking away a drastic amount of freedom with this bill, but over time, the small things add up. Please don't let this be the beginning of the end of the internet we know and love.

Thank you, and that's all for now.

~The Madame

Would it be okay if I copy and posted this in a journal entry on my page? I know someone already asked, I just wanted to make sure if it's alright if I do the same.

looking at this reminds me how scared everyone is of everything. It is a bad thing but ignorance is on both sides. keep the world ignorant to rule it... that is truth. whether it is truly being used for such purposes is unknown. It is good that people are fighting for their interests.

They're legitimately playing with fire here. If they think they can pass this bill without an outbreak of riots across the country, they're either mentally handicapped, or FUCKING STUPID.

I've talked to my parents about this, and they think SOPA is good and is helping people. They don't realize that if this pass, I will be sent to prison!

You should try explaining it to them like this:

The whole bill is written with very vague and loose language. Ultimately, the Entertainment industry will have full control of what they deem criminal. You do a lets play on youtube? If SOPA passes, you're a felon. You do a fan art of a copyrighted character and post it on the internet? If SOPA passes, you're a felon. You record a video of your child singing a cover their favorite song because it's adorable, and put it on the internet to share with your family? If SOPA passes, you're a felon.

SOPA won't help anyone but the corporate big wigs. It's damning the many to benefit a few.
