Why is SOPA So Scarey?

SOPA gives both the U.S. government and copyright holders the authority to seek court orders against websites that are alleged to be infringing, pirating and/or counterfeiting intellectual property.

If passed, SOPA will fundamentally change the way the Internet works and destroy millions of bloggers, publishers, ecommerce merchants and small business owners.

For instance, if a website is accused of containing even a single copyright-infringing content like a photo or a music file or video clip, the ENTIRE site could be blocked by ISPs, removed from search engine indexes and even prevented from doing business with companies ecommerce companies like PayPal, Stripe and Square.

Not only that, the offending site owner could go to JAIL for years! Even Justin Bieber would be a suspect according to this Bill.

    Hey, how about we don’t screw up the internet? Did you know this would screw up Obama’s tumblr that presents news to YOUR citizens? Think about it. Most of YOUR citizens don’t watch the actual television, and with Obama’s blog posting all these things we can actually know about these things he is making right after George Bush and his father messed up. I know Obama will veto it, it has been said over and over, but Congress, please don’t screw it up. Please?

    Den Mist brauch kein Mensch! Es zerstört alles!
    unter vielen trailern/Lets Play`s steht “das kaufe ich mir/dass werde ich mir hohlen!
    Ohne Youtube (Z.B) würden sich sehr viele Leute manche Spiele nicht Kaufen!
    Damit zerstören sich die großen Firmen fast alles,mit der Fernsehen Werbung machen sie nie im leben so einen großen Gewinn!
