SOPA & PIPA are the most ignorant, idiotic acts I have ever seen...
I mean really, the internet is a the world's best form of income because everyone uses it! Well, almost everyone. (Ahem, SOPA and PIPA supporters.) If you don't know too much about the acts, here is a little information about both, from Wikipedia. (They blacked out their website just because of these horrid acts.)
The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as House Bill 3261 or H.R. 3261, is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011, by House Judiciary Committee Chair Representative Lamar S. Smith (R-TX) and a bipartisan group of 12 initial co-sponsors. The bill, if made law, would expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods. Presented to the House Judiciary Committee, it builds on the similar PRO-IP Act of 2008 and the corresponding Senate bill, the PROTECT IP Act.
Basically, this act would totally kill sites like Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and a whole bunch of other sites. Wikipedia is going on strike now because of these acts. If the goverment were to put SOPA and PIPA into action, all your favorite sharing sites and social media sites would be gone forever. That is... until the acts were gone. I don't know what's going to happen, the world would go crazy if these acts somehow get passed. I really hope nothing bad happens.
I wish I could blackout my site, but it's up to Blogger/Blogspot to do that. I can't add the blackout code to this blog just yet.
If you have a site, please support this strike!
