    I totally agree! There would be no freedom! Maybe this online campaign isn’t enough. People should get out in the street and ask their rights!

    Honestly speaking, this bill is absolutely useless. They should not approved this bill! SOPA will do good to no one at all. It will just be a pain in our life! What can we do to help stop this bill?

    I agree, nothing good can come of these proposed legislations. The internet as it stands is home to the good, bad and the ugly. But this freedom it presently has is also the ticket to its endless innovation.

    Nothing surprises me anymore nowadays. We are victims of interest groups who maneuver themselves in order to serve their own interested. And we have people in position of power who are quite willing to accommodate them.

    I think that this bill may very well fail though, and so it should!

    Hopefully it will not pass, every major site on the Internet is against it from Google to WordPress everyone protest against it and even Obama from what I have heard is against it so I don’t see any future for these 2 bills…

    No way…I think this wouldn’t happen. And what about Europe – are you acquainted if there is such a law there?

    Does someone has an update about this bill? Please share! Is it true that this bill is not approved by the US congress? I have read it on Warrior Forums and some said that it is rejected. Is this really true? Help anyone.

    This has gotten a lot of attention, but I was under the impression it had already been killed according to an article I read on Mashable earlier, last week. Maybe I am wrong, but definitely that website is the best place to stay abreast of these issues. I did vote :)

    I think this act is insane, it is against the democratic law, it would be censor the internet. I’ve just read what the hacker-group Anonymus has done, I don’t think it is the best way for the reaction (I think it’s too agressive), but maybe the senators and politician who are working on the new act would mind that maybe they should rethink some things in the process.

    One of the many wonderful things about the internet is that it gives power to the people — almost ALL the people. The resistance to SOPA and PIPA reminds me of the Arab Spring. “The Resistance” in occupied France during World War 2 would have benefited greatly from such a communication medium. Maybe even the people of the former Soviet Union. The “Iron Curtain” and the Berlin Wall could not suppress freedom. Prohibition of alcohol did NOT work in the USA. It only made millionaires out of gangsters. Maybe the “Anonymous” hackers will become the new gangsters. Police radar created a whole industry of “Fuzz-Buster” radar detectors. Morality cannot be enforced by laws.

    Thanks so much for sharing this Cherrie,

    I’m glad that this has been a publicized issue including Google blacking out their logo for a day and Wikipedia blacking out the site. Measures like this that are invasive and can take so much away are often presented as being harmless and without people speaking out, they can sometimes get through and seriously limit our freedom.

    I didn’t understand why the government wanted SOPA now; why not two years ago? Back then the copyrights problem existed too.

    After SOPA and PIPA, there are several other bills that also try to push censorship. We should not forget about stopping those from passing. I did a lot of calling. I did not do the blackout as I had been sharing articles on Twitter and FB 5 weeks prior to this.

  14. Nile is right! These are not the only bills that push censorship. We must keep vigilant to protect our Civil Liberties and online freedoms. I did call my local Congressman Allen West and his office did NOT support the bill which was great to hear. Cherrie, thanks for helping to bring this issue to everyone’s attention!

    The whole thing is confusing to me. On one hand protecting digital content from piracy is a good thing, but one the other, the potential for abuse is huge. It’s like Eminent Domain should be used for good, instead it’s being used by private business to land-grab with government support.

    If you thought SOPA was bad, just wait Until you meet ACTA.
    ACTA had move forward in Europe despite protests.

    Luckily both of these were defeated. But now they are trying to pass back door versions of these. We need to stay vigilant and keep pressing our representatives so we can keep the internet the way it is today. And the ACTA is a nightmare. I read some parts of it the other day and it is very Orwellian.

    I know I’m a little late, but this topic is still very important. Did these get passed? Are we safe? I still don’t fully understand PIPA and SOPA and now google’s privacy changes, but it all amounts to me being suspicious of all of them.

    SOPA would threaten our online rights. I hope it doesn’t get passed. PIPA shouldn’t get passed either. Online websites would get eliminated.

    Forget about SOPA and PIPA. Now comes CISPA (The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). The last I’ve heard about it the Congress was trying to adopt it.
