SOPA and PIPA won't happen. Versus opposition from Google, Wiki, Stumbleupon, Reddit, Yahoo, Youtube, and every other major website on the internet? Jokes. People don't listen to campaign ads, they listen to the websites they visit every day, and now that all of the above are making extremely public their disapproval for SOPA it's incomprehensible that it would be passed.

Az: SOPA doesn't even need to pass for bad s*** to happen. Imagine how it will be if it does. See: UK Student Extradited to US for Copyright Infringement

I think this comment summarizes the whole scenario quite well:

Quote:
Clear as crystal. The men who support SOPA don't actually understand what they're supporting, just that someone is giving them a metric ****ton of money to do so.


It reminds me of something I read about a month or two ago. There's a website called http://www.youhavedownloaded.com/ which tracks torrent downloads based on IP addresses. If you do a search for the IP's of the media corporations themselves, you will find that they also illegally download content. No joke.

Ugh, how sickeningly hypocritical. Will big companies like those be exempt from the legal effects of SOPA and PIPA if they pass (*gag*)? I'm gonna take a pessimistic guess and say they probably will be because they have lots of money and nearly all of them seem to be supportive of these... things. :/

I understand what SOPA is but what is PIPA? :/

PIPA is effectively pretty much the same as SOPA. It's the Protect IP Act, which is ridiculous because it protects nothing.
