Stop SOPA 2013 Petition (its time to sign!)
August 23, 2013 in Activism
In 2012 the Online Privacy Act was brought fourth to congress to be passed which would have negatively affected everyone on the internet as a whole. The people fought back and it never happened. Several times now since then it was revised under a different title with changes and tweaks to the wording to again try to get it to pass without the general public knowing about it. Each time it was found out, and then repealed.
Here we are in 2013 and again dealing with a portion of SOPA, this time the streaming of copywritten works is at the forefront of this particular law to be. If a particular stream contains any copywritten material of any sort the uploader and creator of said content can be found guilty and automatically placed in prison for years on felony charges.
the bill however is so vauge however that the government and coporations would have control of ANY content on the internet and it isnt just limited to places like Youtube. it will affect online internet radio stations, ppl singing a dong, gamers doing review with game footage. activist and alternative media using MSM clips all could be potential felons if they are not properly “authorised”..
the worst part is they are trying to sneak this in quietly under the radar while the other events in the mainstream distract you from noticing it
Let’s end this for good and sign the petition below now and spread this far and wide:
