Sense & Censor Ability: Free speech preachers seek SOPA-powers

With a Judiciary Committee vote scheduled for later this week, fears are growing that the law aimed at fighting copyright infringement, will ultimately lead to censorship and the stifling of freedom of speech

  • Freedom of speech is fine until it gets in the way of big business. And we all know the US government is owned and operated by big business.

  • I find it halarious how the government can just make up its own laws without allowing the people to vote on it. "Hey, lets give ourselves the ability to shut down sites with the flick of a finger" we sit here and say "Whoa, fuck you" but it don't matter, our words mean nothing apparently.

    I'm in Canada, but it'll still affect me. Many sites I visit will more than likely be shut down - basically the US government is telling the world what they can and can't watch because most More..

    • @Jokez6890 I love how everyone blames the Pres. Whether its Obama or Bush or whoever, that is missing the mark. Congress is paid for. Washington is absolutely incapable of real fundamental reforms. The US Government agencies, especially local law enforcement, are already playing by rules that are far outside of the constitution. You guys seem to either not understand what is happening, or are buying into this "its for your own security" bullshit. You used to be free. You are now free a More..

  • Is there nothing they won't try to fuck with? Internet freedom is the last great thing we fuckin' have. I'm sorry, I don't want to fuckin' subscribe to HBO - good luck trying to censor torrents motherfuckers.

  • When the Government starts telling you what websites you can and cant visit it is a sad day for your nation.

  • Yes, as soon as someone in government doesn't like a website, it will get struck for copyright. Almost every site can be hit by this without exception. Every site is in infringment of copyright law, so it just gives a weapon for censorship.

  • Nothing to do with copyright infringement!

    Everything to do with oppressing people!

  • I've been saying since I was the age of 6, not even knowing what I was saying, what it meant, or how I even knew it, that the USA is going straight to hell really fast and in a hand basket.

  • The fate of internet freedom is in the hands of old, fat government officials who, LITERALLY, have NO IDEA how the internet work.

  • SOPA is some sick twisted shit.

    But remember, US law does not apply outside the US, even though they would like it to.

    • @beeftv i'm not so sure about that, if someone with enough money is pulling the strings it seems like they could get anything done. "you're a threat to the nation!"

      Yes they can get it done, by bullying, not because there's any legal right behind it.

  • God that lady has an annoying voice. The bill is much too broad and leaves too much room for manipulation, if it goes through, it will make the internet situation in America literally the exact same as China. Just to give an example, even liveleak could be taken down as a result of this footage since it is taken from a news source.

  • I do imagine, why, Sergey Brin is surprised. It was obvious this was coming for a long time. Brin is a smart guy, why is he surprised?

    The US constitution has been eroded to the point where you are not far from a corporatist/fascist state. The rest of the western world ain't much better.

  • The word to be most concerned about here is "suspected". Think about that, you don't even have to hold any copyrighted content to be shut down. No clear cut appeal process, no legal procedures, just gone.
