Since I create a good amount of content on Youtube and on several blogs I may or may not be performing copyright infringement, it's hard to keep track of all the tiny things and I don't intentionally do it. SOPA and PIPA are acts that could affect the work that I have done over the past few years.

From my understanding. If these acts become law, big companies can shut down websites very easily. As a small blogger I would not have a fighting chance. Youtube which does allow the uploading of content is a big copyright violator. If they shut down Youtube all of my videos would be gone.

The bill is not just about combating piracy, it's about control and censorship (ala Iran, Cuba, etc). These politicians did not grow with the internet, they are not experts in the field, and they don't know how it can affect independent content creators. (or maybe they do, but their Lords control them like the puppets they may be)

The internet has given me a chance to spread information. Hopefully some of the content that I and many small bloggers create helps others. Spreading information is the whole point of this blog. As a content creator I cannot be a good quiet slave and keep my mouth shut. If enough people join in on the movement, SOPA and PIPA will not become law.

  • Gives the government the right to unilaterally censor foreign websites.
  • Gives copyright holders the right to issue economic takedowns and bring lawsuits against website owners and operators, if those websites have features that make it possible to post infringing content.
  • Makes it a felony offense to post a copyrighted song or video.
