Congress is about to pass internt censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans opposed. The senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on TUESDAY JANUARY 24TH and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, its going to pass!

If it passes no more ( think no more) facebook,craigslist, wikipedia, google, yahoo, ebay, aol, twitter, LinkedIn, Mozilla, etsy,

That's what I think, its just gonna be super monitored not actually shut down. I'm sure the powers that be realize if they shut down facebook the earth will stop spinning on its axel and all hell will break loose. Some folks would literally DIE without facebook.

I don't think it will mean the shutting down of facebook,craigslist, wikipedia, google, yahoo, ebay, aol, twitter, LinkedIn, Mozilla, etsy ...   But if it does it could hurt the U.S. economy as these sites are used by advertisers for advertising their products / services to sell, even though they are free to the average users.  Also some other country can jump in that doesn't have this type of censorship (ie. Canada, Australia, U.K.) and come up with something similar to FB.

BTW, good post, very interesting topic.

It is a huge deal. Lets say you post a video to youtube of your DD dancing to Lady GaGa. That would be taken down, because it has Lady gaga music. Anything of pics., brands, and so on would get the host (like fb or craigslist) in trouble. Blogs would get into trouble. Jobs would be lost. List goes on. It is a step on our rights! I will not be like China.

Today while on Perezhilton (haha...reading this on a blog makes me laugh) I did see this...

The White House Will Not Support Controversial Internet Piracy Bills SOPA or PIPA

Filed under: Politik > Barack Obama

Obama SOPA Bill

The internet has been banding together over the last few weeks to fight the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) and has just gained a very powerful ally — the White House!

In a statement responding to two petitions against the bills from the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Obama administration officials wrote:

"While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet."

Critics of both bills believe they may grant the government too much regulatory power on the internet which could result in censorship.

Clearly the White House agrees, however, the reiterates that "online piracy is a real problem that harms the American economy" and suggests the debate is far from over, continuing:

"Moving forward, we will continue to work with Congress on a bipartisan basis on legislation that provides new tools needed in the global fight against piracy and counterfeiting, while vigorously defending an open Internet based on the values of free expression, privacy, security and innovation. Again, thank you for taking the time to participate in this important process. We hope you’ll continue to be part of it."

Piracy is bogus, but we'd prefer they stop it in a way that doesn't affect the creativity and free speech of millions of users who do not illegally download movies or music.

Do U support or oppose SOPA and PIPA?

I know. It's a huge deal, and I am floored that the US is even in this position.
