    Blah... blah

    Usually this kind of crap is there so you get distracted from the real crap and don't see the pile of shit falling on your head.

    If you say so...

    Do you even know what this act is about? I guess how we use our internet now and how this act would effect how we use it in the future woulden't fall under the category of "real crap"?

    Trust me its true, you see the thing is they have a good reason for doing this, they want to pretty much annihilate piracy once and for all but with our current laws they need to get court orders and if they (The user or server) are not in the US and if the place that they (The user or server) resides in dose not have strong laws against piracy then their's not really much the MPAA, RIAA etc... can do and in turn piracy will continue to grow. The paradox here is that they can sue you if they wanted to for just about anyting for example having their music playing the the background of your youtube video, or posting a clip of a show on your facebook wall etc... its like giving a trigger happy teenager a gun for the first time...

    An example of abuse of power from these people who are trying their best to get these laws passed is this: Warner Bros. Admits Sending HotFile False Takedown Requests.

    Basically hotfile gave Warner Bros a tool to take down their (Warner Bros) copywriten content off hotfile servers and like the analogy I used with the trigger happy teenager, they began taking down files which did not belong to them and had no copywright for..

    The reson why people are not taking this seriously is because their previous bill have failed like PROTECT THE IP and the COICA bill but these guys are never going to quit untill it is passed because in their eyes piracy will continure to grow and in turn their sales will continue to decline.

    So if they rewritten the bill stating that they are not going after every day users (since they are not a threat) and only going after Pirates, Torrent Users, Usenet servers etc.. then this bill would have my vote but this is not the case, its all about control and money...

    But if something is non commercial then wouldn't it not cost over $2,500 for a license for it.

    This shit is 100% THE TRUTH!

    I posted similar post here in the past for DEMANDPROGRESS.ORG about the same subject and no one seemed interested.

    Just wait when your site loses all it's US traffic because of this law being passed. Then it won't be a joke ... Don't be fucking idiots people and do something to help stop this shit.

    IT'S 100% real shit!!! Going before congress today I believe and yes this involves ANYONE MARKETING ANYTHING ONLINE!

    But can someone explain how this will make someone that used a movie clip or video game footage in a review,which is legal under the fair use act be able to go to prison? Does this law throw out fair use act?

    Remember from my last thread that I posted:
    [​IMG]

    All it is saying is that if the copyright holders do not object/if they say you can use it then it fall under the fair use act but once they say "No one can use our content without our concent" then thats it, no one can use it under any circumstances. With this law that they are trying to pass it pretty much letting the public know that no one has the permisson to distribure "share" there content, so the fair use will not protect anyone in this situation.

    to those that got panicked ... the law will be to stop non usa users from viewing websites with copyrighted material. an example would be vevo. and for this would make sense that only usa IPs to be considered in best case scenario.

    the website posted by the op seems to me like it's selling free bs to people .. i'vre read 5 min and i didn't understand a thing from there. they're message is very confusing as to who's vote is counted non usa or usa only IPs :l

    the first message that comes up is "usa blocked us" .. well if usa blocked them and thereofre usa users can't see their page, how is it rellevant that non usa people to vote for the petition ?! :) makes no sense

    then if you read the pages you'll find repeteadly the word "you" .. :) you, who ? usa member or is it non usa member ...

    and there's more, many messages that are confusing to say the least.

    it seems like a weak petition to me.
    also, the these petitions are intended for general view on public expectations and are not intended to influence the commitees decision.

    also, why would you have to give email for petition :)) that's hillarious

    i didn't give my email .. not worth it :)

    This sh!t is as real as it gets. If congress ever passes this law I hope to God someone is going to create their own DNS system which won't oblige to US law. Then US people can go swim in their pond of banned websites and take this sh!t up with their senators when they find out 90% of all their favourite websites have been blocked.

    If this passes, the unfortunate scenario is that it is taken to Europe and tried for another success pushing their allies into the same mode of blocking and censoring websites.

    The US is no better than China with a fake facade and trying to give off the impression that it is "for" freedom of speech...Not much freedom of speech when someone takes down a website/censors it is there? Hypocrites.

    Unfortunately a very few people in here are aware of this or know the impact of wtf this could do the Internet. I appreciate the US traffic; it brings in money and God forbid this law is passed, however, people need to wake up and start shaking up their own local politicians.
