The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)

Stop Online Piracy Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R. 3261, is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011

what do u guys think about this?

why isnt it covered on the news?

i JUST heard about it... wtf?!

anyways, my thoughts are... its just something the imperialists down south would do. but like the war on drugs, this is gonna be another huge failure. i think it will fail harder than the war on drugs. they cant control it. they're totally retarded.

anyways, fuck them.


edit: any mod can u edit the title to "The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)" thanks...

If you guys read up on it - there are many companies in the states that publicly supported the bill, including Go-Daddy (which pulled their support later on).

Pretty much. It was covered on the news but it was a really small bit. The major corporations behind all the news outlets control what comes out hence the hush hush situation we're seeing. The USA will try and institute a "China-like" censorship of the internet by using a "dummy" bill to initiate what they want to accomplish. It's nothing new in terms of what the government does. It's only a matter of time when full censorship takes full effect. 2012 and onwards will be huge. Just wait and watch.

Our freedoms are being pulled one by one and the sad thing is nothing can be done about it because they will claim its for our safety and it's for the good.

FYI GoDaddy was part of writing the SOPA drafts. Even though they've supposedly pulled support, I think this is nothing but a PR move and behind the scenes they still want it passed.

"Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation - but we can clearly do better," Warren Adelman, Go Daddy's newly appointed CEO, said."

imgur.com has moved its domains from GoDaddy and Wikipedia is in the process of moving theirs as well: https://twitter.com/#!/jimmy_wales/s...87579642740736

btw, Wikipedia only has GoDaddy as their DNS, I think they still have their own servers.

Either way, it's such a sleezeball move on Go Daddy's part. I'm glad people are boycotting it.

I'm not surprised if they start filtering search results through Google - just the same way that China did before Google pulled out.

I tweeted a lot about the cause and effect of this bill today. Everyone should spread the word as well!

Hey Skinny,

If your interested in switching over, I'd check out this reddit page to make your life a bit easier for alternatives

Reddit, if one wants to switch domains from GoDaddy, what are the best alternative domain hosting sites? : AskReddit

For good domain hostings

I have 12 domains with Godaddy... I'm switching to namecheap on 29th. Just a little effort to support the cause.

Don't even need a plug-in... just override your computer/router's automatically-acquired DNS servers and point those to some offshore DNS servers (actually, Canadian DNSes should still be fine...)

People If you want to stop SOPA you have to do things IRL. Complaining on RS will not work.
