so….the “internet blackout day” is all over. or is it? the PIPA and SOPA opera drama… we’ll see what other exciting things happen…
still, we need awareness…i found it very strange that so many of the people who were not aware were college students. weird. i just thought those young kids knew everything! i guess… it can be a bit overwhelming and somewhat confusing. so here you go:
“SOPA is disguised as an anti-piracy bill. Any first year CS student knows better. The bill is, in actuality, designed to obliterate free speech on the internet and allow media publishing companies to commercialize everything.
SOPA explicitly states that companies will be liable for everything their users post. Sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, Wikipedia, or any sites that allow user generated content CANNOT exist under these laws. Immediately after this bill is passed, you will see the media mafia (MPIAA, RIAA, etc) replacing websites like Wikipedia with commercialized encyclopedia software. Mainstream media outlets will not cover this bill because they are the ones lobbying for it. ….”
i looked like this earlier.
but it’s a good week for sopa de tortilla anyway… mmmm.mmm.mmm. i will make some this week and post :)
