Like the internet? Then Help Save It!!!

Senate will begin voting on January 24, 2012


It is basically a bill  that will destroy the Internet as we know it, especially video streaming websites like YouTube...

Video such as this will  probably get you jail time... 


"The originally proposed bill would allow the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as copyright holders, to seek court orders against websites accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement. Depending on who makes the request, the court order could include barring online advertising networks and payment facilitators from doing business with the allegedly infringing website, barring search engines from linking to such sites, and requiring Internet service providers to block access to such sites. The bill would make unauthorized streaming of copyrighted content a crime, with a maximum penalty of five years in prison for ten such infringements within six months. The bill also gives immunity to Internet services that voluntarily take action against websites dedicated to infringement, while making liable for damages any copyright holder who knowingly misrepresents that a website is dedicated to infringement."

Websites Such as Google and Wikipedia are taking a stand against the SOPA, and so should everyone else who enjoys the Internet as it is today...
