a dark day indeed..as the National Defense Authorization Act was signed by President Obama, the SOPA Vote has been delayed (2012). For those of you that do not know about SOPA, it’s the Stop Online Piracy Act – yet another tool for the government (and corporate folks) to monitor our voices via the Internet. If passed, this Act will give the the Government (as well as copyright holders aka the Corporate FUCKS) to seek court orders against websites enabling or facilitating infringement rights.
Translation – sites like ours will be CENSORED! Blogs with personal opinions can be shut down…essentially you could be prosecuted if at any point during your post, blog, journaling etc you refer to information “copyrighted” by news agencies or even the governments. Huge media corporations (such as the insidious New Corporation) are backing this bill. The good guys (like us) are AGAINST it.
We should ALL keep an eye on this, as (SOPA) coupled with the recently signed National Defense Authorization Act is a strong mixture of something strong brewing keeping our civil liberties in check .. WATCH OUT
