SOPA
« on: November 16, 2011, 10:23:34 am »
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A proposed new bill intended to combat online piracy has sparked a giant backlash from big tech companies, including Google and Facebook, who say the proposals are far too strict and rife with unintended consequences.

This has been all over the news lately, I'm sure some of your Americans have heard about it. I am very disgusted that something like this would even begin to show up in American legislature. I think it already failed to pass, so hopefully we won't hear much more about it after today.

Doesn't worry me in the slightest it's almost impossible not to breach copyright if you are filming in a public place the backlash will have the film studio's closed down for infringement of copyright.

They will soon be screaming to have it repealed.

There are a lot of people in the US against it as well and no support for it outside of the US.
