NEVERMIND ALL THIS! IT’S DONE! SOPA and PIPA were dropped by Congress today!! (that is to say, January 20th, not the 19th! XD)
If you wanna see the original post here, Keep on reading, as it still has stuff to do with megaupload, but regardless SOPA And PIPA are D–EAD!!!!
With the MegaUpload Unplug having just happened, I read an article that asked this: “It begs the question that if you can find and arrest people who are suspected to be involved in piracy using existing laws, then why introduce further regulations which are US-only and potentially damaging.”
About SOPA and PIPA. Seriously now.
WHY Do we need NEW Laws if the SAME EFFECTS can be done already?
So, Obama calls for: “revamped provisions” on SOPA and PIPA- and all I’m seeing here are “Revamped Provisions”- and Hollywood Pulls their support?
What does this tell you, Explorers?
What does this tell you about HOLLYWOOD and the MPAA?
Furthermore, read This article here.
It’s specifically said that SOPA and PIPA target foreign Websites. Look at what has happened already: A UK citizen was ARRESTED by US OFFICIALS for Posting something online that is PERFECTLY LEGAL IN THE UK but is ILLEGAL IN THE US.
WHAT- I ask of you- Does that tell you about Hollywood?
And of the MPAA?
Of our Own Governments?
SO: I say this! FORGET HOLLYWOOD.
They want to take down sites that are taking away their profits?
Well: I say we take away their profits all together!
WHAT I CALL FOR IS THIS: A BOYCOTT OF THE MPAA AND HOLLYWOOD!
No, you don’t have to ACTUALLY Boycott Movies all together right now. This is just to show them that you are WILLING to do such in the future.
Keepin’ it real, folks.
