On Twitter, someone mentioned: Under SOPA, if you upload a single Michael Jackson song, you could be sentenced to 5 years in prison.  That's one more than the doctor who killed him got.

Pretty steep penalty.

I've signed two separate online petitions today.

But on a somewhat related tangent, every time I see SOPA-PIPA, I initially think it says sopapilla, and I get hungry.

The question I have, as always, is thus.  What is the government silently passing while they cause this media circus on an internet plan that they (A) can't possibly police and (B) don't really want?

You know, you bring up a good point. What else is going on behind the scenes?

This is bullshit, how can they in their right minds  do this.  And how would they enforce it.  I am flabbergasted.

I tend to agree with Fro. Good intentions and may be raising awareness, but it's largely preaching to the choir.  It's great to see artists and filmmakers step up against this, but it's the larger studios that have put up the money for this bill.

Unless we step up with our own $94 million as the entertainment industry has, I think it's a hell of an uphill battle.

Sorry Indy.  I forgot to answer this for you. 

Click on profile on the top menu bar then click on forum profile on the left side.   Where you can upload (or pick from one we have) your avatar should be the first choice on the page.

Hope this helps.

Posted on "The Oatmeal" site today:

Because of the combined efforts of some of the internet's biggest players as well as countless awesome underdogs, you could tentatively say that the protests were a success. 18 senators backed off from the bill, 4.5 million people signed a petition, and anyone who used the internet yesterday for more than five seconds is now well aware of what SOPA is and how to stop it.

That actually is a very good point. If anything, all these bills will do is cause an increase in hacking and bootlegging. It would ultimately cause everything that they say they don't want to happen.

House and Senate leaders abandoned plans to move on SOPA and PIPA on Friday — the surest sign yet that a wave of online protests have killed the controversial anti-piracy legislation for now and maybe forever.
SOPA sponsor Lamar Smith, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said his committee won’t take up the bill as planned next month — and that he’d have to “wait until there is wider agreement on a solution” before moving forward.


This has a "battle vs war" feel to me.  It's great it was stopped as it is today, but I seriously doubt they'll stop trying to fund, I mean pass, a bill like this.
