SOPA. Have you heard?

I don't know much about this but it sounds quite serious. Because I don't live in the US this isn't too much of a massive concern to me but still, you have to think of others so I thought i'd spread the word.

RE: SOPA. Have you heard?

The thing is, it is a major concern to you. Many of the websites we use are based in USA and if they´re blocked there it will have a huge negative impact on us. TotalBiscuit made a great video explainging SOPA and equally horrible PIPA:

Great of you to spread the word btw Smile

You're a bit late on this, but still good to make a thread about it. Haven't seen one before.

RE: SOPA. Have you heard?

The only issue i have with SOPA is that it takes ideas from PIPA and the fact that much of the description of SOPA is too vague to be used in practice. No country should have the right to tell another country what to do and being vague allows for just about anything.

SOPA is bullshit like the GEMA by YouTube imo. They're going to far!

RE: SOPA. Have you heard?

I've actually only just heard of this like about 20 minutes ago. I am aware that this will have huge effects across the world, I find the whole bill a huge disgrace to freedom and mankind.

Speaking to a few american friends online, they seem relaxed about it as they think Obama will sort it out and that the whole idea is ludacris and serves no threat. I hope they're right.

RE: SOPA. Have you heard?

It's funny because sopa is a word that swedes use to trash sportsmen with.

Example: Vilken jävla sopa!/What a f*cking loser!

RE: SOPA. Have you heard?

I was being sarcastic.
It's everywhere so I'm surprised if someone haven't heard of it yet.
But to be honest, I don't really care about the whole SOPA thing at all.
