SOPA Protests

So what the fuck is SOPA? It’s practically a bill that threatens to empower the U.S. government to stop or take down sites that have certain copyright issues with them for those sites that are based in the U.S.

Why the fuck should you care? Well, wordpress, for instance, is based in the U.S. The same goes for Youtube, Yahoo, and yes, Google.

Want a better explanation? Here’s a link from one of the major websites that have already begun its protest. And I’m sure you use that site A LOT. Would you, a common user, want Wikipedia to VANISH?

Heck, even Google is preparing retaliation.

EVEN THE FATHER OF THE INTERNET IS AGAINST IT!

For those who frequent CNET, here’s their take on it.

As for me? The bill, as I’ve yet to read it myself, is really touching the very sensitive part of internet users. The bill, as many have stated, is quite vague with regards to what is copyrighted and what is to be censored.

And it could be anything.
