    Hey guys,

    SOPA and PIPA really scares me and from what I read on internet means that every website can get shutdown due to copyright infrigment etc.

    What you will do if these bitches pass the SOPA and PIPA?

    I'm as scared as you. I imagine my earnings would be half as low if it passes.

    Internet as a whole will be affected. Why do you say internet MARKETING will be affected ?

    "The bill, if made law, would expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods."

    Of what i understand sites would be blocked only in the U.S right ?

    You know folks, there are ways of making money online that doesn't necessarily mandate copyright violation lol. Start now by moving away from content lockers on watching movies and TV shows, diversify a little bit.

    Yes because as we all know, there is no truth or unbiased without being able to download movies and mp3s.

    When I was a kid, there were 3 TV stations, and it was all boring. If you wanted to listen to music, you had a radio. If you wanted to listen to a song when you wanted to, you recorded it on a cassette, and get pissed off with the DJ talking for the first couple seconds of the song.

    I don't feel sympathy for those crying about not being able to download movies and songs for free. Everyone crying how social networks are going to get shut down because they link to mp3s and movies ... that is smoke and mirrors, the real concern is the loss of the mp3s and movies, not the social sites.

    To suggest this is the end of internet marketing if they somehow filter mp3 and movie downloads is just about the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

    As it was stated before by phpbuilt, not everything in internet marketing is related to violation of some copyright. Niche sites will still be okay if you haven't stolen content (which wouldn't rank post-panda anyways) or have it in the domain (which they can take down even now).

    What worries me is who draws the line and who makes sure that ONLY in those cases would they block content.

    I am guessing if it's passed, you can say goodbye to RT (the channel on youtube - Russia Today). You can even connect SOPA to the statement Hilary Clinton gave in congress "We are losing the information war. Information travels so fast we can't control it anymore."

    So here's your reason :)

    Somewhere in some lavish mansion, the illuminati laugh as the peasants quibble over whether they must pay a pittance for their entertainment, distracting them from the real question ... how is it the US is 236 years old and the bank owns almost all property and the US government owes more money than has ever been printed.

    If I had to pick up a cause to fight for, it wouldn't be unhampered free movie downloads.

    I agree with your stance that SOPA and PIPA aren't going to be as crippling as many suggest. But had to chime in on your comment above...

    banks don't own property. people do. without banks, almost nobody would own property. banks loan money, that's it. And just as you or I, they want to make sure that they're paid back. If I loan you $ to buy a new computer and you decided not to pay me back, then i want your new computer so i can sell it and get back some of my $. Same exact thing that a bank does. further banks dont want to be in the foreclosure/repossession business, it's simply a last resort. Following with my example if i have to "repossess" your computer then i have to deal with the hassles of listing it on craigslist, waiting for and negotiating with a buyer, and probably selling for less than what you owed me. I, and banks, would much rather work out a deal to simply be repaid, but some borrowers simply push it too far.

    sorry for the rant, but people too easily get "big corporate resentment" and lose site of the facts. not saying you don't see both sides but many reading this might not.

    as far as debt goes, debt is generally a good thing, especially for economics, as it's the primary driver of economic growth. but you're going in the right direction that after a certain point its just excessive and detrimental...plus i've done enough preaching for today.

    btw, im not a banker, nor do i have any connection to any financial institution.

    I don't think something like this proposal can ever reach to become law.

    And BTW I think yes there should be such law as ina few years from internet will be huge and to find the correct information will become a task, so its better to remove the wrong options so obviously the correct one will showup but how to achieve this is more of a concern for search engines rather than government.

    I have the deed to my home and property. Guess what? You are listed as a tenant only...not as the owner. That tells me we own nothing really. If they want it for whatever reasons or you owe the property taxes, they just take it anyway.

    This is norhing to do with "downloading illegal movies" I don't bother with that B*S* anyway. That's what laws are for....

    It's about passing powers fore Governemnt/big companies to blacklist any site they see fit.

    Get a grip PHPBuilt. I think you are really missing the whole point here!!

    Just plain wrong. Being listed as a tenant is simply a statement of fact and can be for a number of reasons, most likely due to a "promise" that you made the bank when borrowing their money that you wouldn't rent it out to anyone else.

    "tenant" and "owner" aren't mutually exclusive and being listed as a tenant does not mean that you do not own the property.

    The fact that the bank can take the house away doesn't mean that they own the house. It's simply the "deal" that you made with them. They loaned you a large amount of money to purchase a house and you promised to pay them back. Well your ( and my and everyone's) promise isn't worth shit so you also agreed that if you stopped paying then they could have from you something that is "worth" the amount of money that you owe them, in this case, the house. The bank doesn't "own" anything. They only only have "promises" that you made to them when they gave you money.

    Sorry to get this thread so far in another direction but people are generally so misinformed it only hurts them ( not just about houses, but everything, including seo).

    OP, If these bills do get passed into law then make sure you are not misinformed. Do your homework, read the laws and find out what is and what isn't prohibited. As others have stated there will plenty of ways to still make money. Just make sure you're informed and on the right side things and you'll be prepared to handle any of the forced changes of any new laws

    Read it, understand it. It's not about some lame ass free movie/mp3/whatfuckingever downloads, it's about google, youtube, wikipedia, facebook, twitter, reddit and all the future innovations relying on user submitted content.

    Hmm.. I don't think these SOPA and PIPA will pass. Obama is "in the protest" saying no to this.

    It won't affect anything I (we) do, but I still don't support such a ridiculous bill. I already notified my local congressmen. This type of shit is just outlandish.
