Protest SOPA and PIPA

January 18, 2012

The guys over at ModDB have a better video for explaining then what I could say on my own:

This legislation needs to be stopped, and the outcry against it must get stronger and stronger. What does it say when media producers themselves (including Mojang, EPIC Games, and Bungie) are even openly and violently against this? It says the people pushing this law have no idea what they are talking about, and are living in a fever dream. The only positive (and highly ironic) thing that’s come out of SOPA and PIPA is that political parties are finally doing something bipartisan (both those who are pro and against these new laws come from the Republican and Democrat parties).

As for me myself? If this legislation goes through, I’ll be very strongly tempted to do all I can to help people defy it. Anyone with good intuition knows that hackers and those persistent enough will essentially produce a Gray and a Black internet. These will be outside of -any- legislation and won’t be able to be stopped at all by law enforcement. Frankly speaking, companies are using the same logic as Donut uses here, from 1:20  to 1:46 http://roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=246&v=more&s=5

And that’s all for this topic (if you want to know more about SOPA and/or PIPA, I suggest you use the search engines while they are still free to link you to whatever they can find).
