I have no use for online piracy, or these hackers who think they can do whatever they damn well please. If SOPA doesn't pass, you may well see some of these companies no longer allowing their intellectual property to be displayed online at all.
    And there will be very little they can do about it. The World Wide Web would be a much less open community, by law and regulation if things like SOPA pass.

    Yeah, but your personal definition of treason is stupid.

    If I make a work, copyright it, share it freely, and tell others to do so, /we are sharing copyrighted materials, but broke no laws since I gave the OK to do so.



    How the quoted misconception got to be so popular is kinda scary.
    You are correct, I just didn't feel like writing a whole paragraph explaining this.

    The same could be said of all terrorist organizations, IMO.

    Apparently a website called Megaupload was taken down by the FBI, it's founder including 4 of the websites members were arrested, and some internet denzines did not take too kindly to it. The hacker Anonymous seems to be taking this one personally.


    Anonymous has posted a response to these happenings, and apparently Chris Dodd is squarely in their sites:


    1. SOPA also makes it in the response. Is this civil disobedience or illegal activity?




    #OpMegaupload - Pastebin.com
    the ****s from anonymous should be hunted, jailed and banned from ever using a computer again.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Why would they announce their targets before striking?

    Nonsense. Threatening to shut down legal websites simply because you don't get to steal people's **** is terrorism.

    Typical right-wing, playing the terrorism card.
    I'm not right wing - I was the first to call it terrorism.

    Instead of going after the service that allows legal downloads maybe they should go after the people that post the illegal stuff on that service instead.

    Very hard to do. Really what's going to happen is that all media will come only playable to internet connected devices and have severe DRM hurdles to play. Thank thieves for this.
