Default SOPA and Protect IP bill-IMPORTANT!

(I just copy n pasted from Hobbytalk, I wrote it myself anyways)

The Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA in short, is currently being debated through the House, with a similar bill known as Protect IP going through the senate. If this bill passes, this will give any company the right to send out random court orders to shut down any site that "could be used for infringing content." That means any forum, and I mean ANY, can be shut down because "it MIGHT be used for copyright infringement."

This is not a Left vs Right issue. This WILL affect you, most likely indirectly. Sites like Youtube will be taken down because they "purposely host infringing content." DA.C will be taken down because it "could be used to infringe on content," and while that sounds absurd, that is all the MPAA or RIAA needs to get this site taken down if SOPA passes.

Please stop either bill from passing, the safety of the internet is in your hands...remember, if you don't do something about it, the outcome will be disastrous...loss of freedom, loss of thousands of independent and tech jobs, possibly even new high tariffs being imposed to us by European governments and maybe even China, and I'm only getting on the surface of it...

NO MATTER WHAT YOU BELIEVE, PLEASE STOP SOPA AND PROTECT IP-PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS AND SMALL COMPANIES NOT ONLY IN AMERICA BUT AROUND THE WORLD!
