Yeesh, I can understand the idea of protecting copyrighted work, but that entire bill sounds like it was written by some septuagenarian music executive who can't even turn on his own computer, much less understand how the internet works.

I wonder if my Star Wars based website would be shut down under this new law? http://www.skiffguards.com/

I'm thinking so, Nate. If it would effect Wikipedia, it's going to effect Wookieepedia which would shut your site down...if I'm understanding it correctly.

Like you, I understand the idea of protecting copyrighted work, but it seems what they are trying to do here with these bills casts way too broad of a net and definitely gives the government way too much power. IMO

It's almost as though Congress is proud of how ignorant of technology they are.

sopa is garbage and MMA wouldnt be half as big as it is today without the internet.

Funny how uploading Michael Jacksons music can land you 5 years in prison, but Conrad Murphy only got 4 years for killing Michael Jackson.

You would be responsible for making sure that every link posted on this forum doesnt go to a site with "illegal" content. If you dont, Obama/Biden can shut you down.
