SOPA - Stop Online Piracy Act

Hello Legion of Bitchin' Followers!

Im sure you're all familiar with what SOPA is... This 'SOPA' bill is getting even closer to being either passed or rejected. I can assume that almost everyone of you followers disagree with the SOPA because of what it means. But i've been reading up and there are certain organisations fighting against 'The Machine'...



It's been said that big internet companies are coming together to fight this bill and it's called 'Operation Blackout'. This blackout would consist of huge companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and possibly others all coming together and shutting down their services for a small amount of time, showing the world a possible glimpse into the future if this act is passed. 


I personally think this idea of Google, Facebook and Twitter all shutting down their services for... Lets say a day, would be a great idea. It might actually knock some sense into the idiots hoping to pass this stupid act.


What do you guys think? 


Stay Bitchin' Peeps.

  3. Censorship on the internet has always existed. It is when the major companies have the power to selectively choose to shut down and ENTIRE service that people should have problems.

    I think the major free speech supporters should be doing much more in regards of daily awareness campaigns instead of demonstrating a day with no Google, Facebook, etc..

    Good post. It is nice to see people bringing attention to this issue.

  6. I'm all for the blackout. Hooray for SC2 and Skyrim (and I guess college) for keeping that from being the most boring day ever.

  8. Yep, I completely agree. Been following this stuff and even made a post about it since Reddit has kind of gone crazy.

  9. Even more alarming is how the US pressured Spain to pass a similar censorship law at the threat of trade sanctions. Unbelievable.

  13. Its a good idea, but I doubt that it will work because our shitty politicians will always bend over backwards (and forwards) to do what big business wants.

  16. I agree with all you say. Hoping big companies do that "turn off" and I'm glad to see people making blogs like this for sharing our disagreement with SOPA

  17. Lets hope they choose not to pass it!

  18. I like the blackout idea. SOPA MUST BE STOPPED!

  19. Blackout sounds interesting, but SOPa is probably passing as a halfassed version of what it is now, and Obama can apply Veto and gain a lot of votes too

  20. I could last a while without em, i already use an alternative to google every now and then.
    I really hope they will do this, hell, 1 week would be great, it'll be a little sacrifice, but at least everybody knows not to fck with the internet.
