    Some libertarian you are.
    I've seen no legitimate arguement outside of being pissed that you might not be able to as freely D/L the property of others.

    "The Obama administration has joined the ranks of skeptics of the Stop Online Piracy Act. In an online statement released Saturday, three senior White House officials wrote that the administration "will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet."

    Either you haven't read the powers granted by the proposed bill or you are really, really not a libertarian.

    I could post a link to a youtube video in this post, that youtube video has some music background.

    This is causing a big stir on the forumns for the game I play, Leage of Legends. They get many thousands of people to watch average joe playing a video game online via streaming. I guess SOPA would be able to attack these streamers and LoL wants to keep that viewer base alive to build a competative sports-like scene. I wonder what SOPA would do to internet radio stations? I think it would totally kill them.

    AKA too many people grew skeptical too fast before they rammed it through.

    I see it as just another attempt by the entertainment industry to continue their absurd demands brought on by greed. Like many forms of entertainment today the people involved demand more and more and want to work less and less for it. Any threat to this process is fought tooth and nail. This is the main reason I no longer watch or purchase sports items. Athletes and Actors for example expect HUGE salaries at the expense of ticket and product buyers. Take Julia Roberts for example (I believe it was her, its been a few years now) that said she didnt want to be contacted for work unless the role payed a minimum of $20M a movie. Actors/Actresses that make Television shows work shorter and shorter seasons and ask for more and more money. Look at TV in the 1950's for example, many made 40-60 episodes a year and worked for a fraction of current salaries (taking inflation into consideration), today many shows are only 12-16 episodes a year.

    High budget movies today have a army of personal. All for what? Movies today in my opinion are no more entertaining then 50 years ago. I recently watched a movie that was made by an individual for $25,000. Yes I said $25,000 and while it did not have the same polish that Hollywood releases have it was every bit as entertaining. Yet many if not most Hollywood releases have budgets in the tens of millions and some over 100 million.

    I say that the entertainment industry has been digging their own hole and now are looking for our politicians to correct the problem putting the blame on "pirates". I have got news for them, if torrents were not available I still wouldn't pay $15+ to watch 99% their overpriced crap in theaters.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that online radio stations already pay to have songs available to play.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I haven't seen the great harm. It seems to be a bill of redundancy to me. You've provided absolutely nothing to the contrary. Granted, redundant bills are certainly a waste of time but it's not going to end the internet as we know it as some claim.
