Save The Internet(SOPA AND PIPA Conspiracy)

The question is why? Why does the US goverment want to control the internet world? They claimthey have been facing an intense amount of pressure, mostly from the entertainment and computer software publishing companies for years to find some method of stopping the online piracy that is allowing people to own copies of their merchandise for free.

This doesn’t sound cool at all, thousands of people including me use the internet as information and lifetstyle hub, if the US Government passes the SOPA and PIPA act, i tell you were screwed. SOPA(Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA(Protect IP Act).

 

Were screwed because this will mean sites like wikipedia, youtube, wordpress and the like will experience some serious infringement issues, think about all the torrents you have been downloading all the videos we have uploaded, this is going to be more than one finger in the ass. I myself can’t imagine waking up one day only realize that i cant tweet, facebook or even blog, the internet is practically is our lives  andthousands of us have started life changing ideas and careers from it and now these Elite of the techworld want to deny es of this glorious privilege:-((

PIPA, if passed, will give  U.S. corporations and the government the right to seek affirmative legal action with any website that they see as enabling copyright infringement whether of U.S. origin or not. Here is a breakdown of all that they will have the power to do.

  • Force U.S. internet providers to block access to websites deemed as enablers of copyright infringement
  • Seek legal action by suing search engines, blog sites, directories, or any site in general to have the black listed sites removed from their website
  • Will be able to force advertising services on infringing websites, and those supporting of them, to remove them from their advertising accounts
  • Companies will also have the power to sue any new websites that get started after this bill is passed, if they believe that they are not doing a good job of preventing infringement on your website

I really don’t know we can do about it but i thank Wikipedia, Mozilla and Google for striving against these acts since they understand the power of the internet, how it has changed our lives with infinite knowledge, entertainment and opportunity to express oneself, i can only hope that the bill is not passed.
