I'm pretty sure what you mean is that they are trying to censor the internet.

Yeah, censor it. You basicly get no way to express yourself or something?

Censor p***. They are going to eliminate access to it. Anything subliminal (maybe?)
#8
Well, they can try it. :P
Pretty much like trying to reroute the Mississippi with a Dixie cup, though.

Lol Gboss XD

Downloads will still be there. They act like Internet is bad, it's really not. Internet is for entertainment, access to important information, news, and everything else.

Entertainment could contain positive and negative information as long with anything else.

They can't block everything or censor it. You might as well copy the FCC episode of Family Guy. Invade people's homes with black boxes so they don't see their own private parts.

:/

I could be going at this the wrong way. Idk.
#10
Let's hope we don't get as much censorship as china for example Wink
#11
They are going to eliminate their post, from internet.. nothing else.

Okay, this is not getting the attention it should.

Basically if what is know as SOPA passes, Then anything that is copyright infringement that exists in the USA will be shut down.

What does that mean?

It means Wikia's, Wikipedia, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter just vanished overnight.

In addition, US citizens can no longer visit URLs that lead to sites like this one.

Also, Equestria Daily would be shut down, which would devastate the brony subculture.

I don't care who you are, but this needs a bump, because congress has been trying to get this done for years.

SAVE THE LAST FREEDOM, PROTECT THE PROMISED LAND THAT IS THE CONNECTION OF THE INTERWEBS!

over half of them admit they do not know how to use a computer. If it passes it will also cause servers that host internet sights to shut down.

All I say is Encrypted VPN. The end, SOPA is now useless.

All companies affected by it will simply move overseas and the US economy will bury itself further into the Earth's core then what it is. America will lose all the big companies it has, so to you poor American's, I pity you, if this goes through, your economy may as well not exist.

I assume you refer to the petition.
Just write a letter to your local rep.
