Sub_title: SOPA morphed into CISPA
 

Edit: April 2012 - SOPA Morphed into CISPA -
See page 6.

Here are some in-depth articles about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) poised to be voted on this year in the U.S.A.
SOPA will effect users world wide.
I post them as a starting point of discussion and awareness of this act.

Looks like there is a new act called OPEN being offered.
I started a new thread about the OPEN act:

Wrapping Up a Week Of Action Against SOPA

It looks like the Week of Action Against SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, has made a difference. Although there wasn't enough opposition to kill the bill outright, the messages we've been sending for weeks — that the bill would create blacklists for online censorship, harm cybersecurity efforts, set a bad international precedent, and lead to a fractured Internet — couldn't be ignored. Chairman Lamar Smith acknowledged that the Judiciary Committee didn't yet have all the facts, and announced that markup would be suspended until the next practicable opportunity — tentatively scheduled for late January.

Thanks for starting the thread.
A lot of organizations and individual persons
here in Europe is very upset about it and so am I.

The companies behind the Lobby that proposed it
gets too much power in their hand.

Youtube as we know it today will most likely have to change
a lot.

and even our forum here has to be very vigilant and stop
any link to music or other copyrighted things.

So a villain that want to destroy for us can bomb us
with such links and there are too few moderators to keep up
so it is bad bad bad.

Exactly - I can imagine one is putting, let's say, "Copyright bomb" on some site,
then site will be closed, and so on, and so on...
...and we can reach the day, when accessing net we'll get "Sorry, internet has been banned" message...
Half funny, half serious, but possible...

Greetings!

One more thought:
IF SOPA will become reality, forums like this must have:
1. Brilliant filters to distinguish links leading to copyrighted materials, or
2. Prohibition of posting links, or
3. Moderation of every post before publishing.

Every point listed above (I assume that 1st point is rather impossible to implement) leads to death of free forum concept, IMHO...

PS. D@mn it, why I became so pessimistic today??
Let someone present any positive point of view, PLEASE! Wink

Greetings!

How to transfer a domain from GoDaddy

http://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/876/83/how-to-transfer-a-domain-from-godaddy

For those that don't get the relevance of this, this forum is hosted on GoDaddy, and they are the reason that the forum goes offline for periods.

Yes that is unfortunate. We have to donate then to John

Back to SOPA.

I trust it will be implemented. That Lobby that have taken it this far
spent some 200 million US Dollar on forcing it to get through.

So if they are that at it then they will not give up on it even if
postponed for the moment over Christmas and New Year.

February them will go at it again and see it get fully implemented.

Maybe them take it easy first and only give warning but I agree
that most likely links has to be approved of by the Admin/Mods.

Or else any forum can be crushed by a "Lulz" kid that find it fun to
be destructive.

Try not pessimistic enough. There are many useful advantages for the government to gain controls of the internet. That's what police states do.

VP Joe Biden is a longtime copyright enforcement weener, having sponsored several bills over the last decade. He is indirectly responsible for the Obama administration's appointment of 5 RIAA attorneys to the DoJ.

Although Go Daddy reversed their stance on SOPA, it wasn’t before 37,000 domains were transfer off of its service, according to information reported by The Domains. The report indicates that over 15,000 domains were transferred off Thursday and another 21,054 domains on Friday. If you factor in the $6.99 to $10.99 fees associated with each of those domain registrations, Go Daddy is losing a significant amount of money.


if you know how business works
you dont have a business when your customers
leave

since this forum uses Go Daddy
it would be wise to do some back ups soon

this will only help those that are not complacent

why people react to problems differently
some panic some complain some react by looking for new solutions

That's probably not a true statement. I don't think GoDaddy is the reason the forum went down, but GoDaddy's (lack of) response after the forum went down was certainly counterimpressive. Laughing

Thanks. This offered great clarity on all the complex issues involved; however I found some others that offered better focus and insight :

LOL Laughing , politicians are the same (idiots) all over the world.
But...let's forgive them, they're just weak and brainless puppets of corporations' schemers.

I'm crushed! Shocked Laughing
But, in a contrary, this cutie seems to be quite sharp:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-lGyMe931w

Meanwhile:
At last, after hard, intensive thinking (<- joke), I finally found a bright side of this whole SOPA thing.
When SOPA becomes true and our (illusion of?) freedom will be restricted, it may cause, that our sense of solidarity will grow
and more people start to publish their work under GNU/GPL and Creative Commons.
If the enemy is known and threatens the masses, people (even if they were antagonists) tend to unite and share with each other.

Or am I naive..?

Greetings!
