Protest Against SOPA PIPA

January 18, 2012 Blaze Shadowhorn 0 Comments








Do you like the Internet? Do you like Wizard101 blogging and blogging in general? Well this will all be changed if Congress passes the SOPA and PIPA bill.
Here is an overview of the bill: 
The originally proposed bill would allow the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as copyright holders, to seek court orders against websites accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement. Depending on who makes the request, the court order could include barring online advertising networks and payment facilitators from doing business with the allegedly infringing website, barring search engines from linking to such sites, and requiring Internet service providers to block access to such sites. The bill would make unauthorized streaming of copyrighted content a crime, with a maximum penalty of five years in prison for ten such infringements within six months. The bill also gives immunity to Internet services that voluntarily take action against websites dedicated to infringement, while making liable for damages any copyright holder who knowingly misrepresents that a website is dedicated to infringement.[4] -Wikipedia SOPA/PIPA
Basically if this bill get's passed, we can say goodbye to thew internet we know. Millions upon millions of people world wide are taking part in this protest. Google, Wikipedia and tons of other websites as well as Facebook are protesting against the SOPA/PIPA bill. Here is something that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook Founder, posted earlier today:



Now besides this, Wikipedia as well as other sites have pledged to be "blacked out" for 24 hours in order to raise awareness of SOPA and PIPA. Here are some of the ways many sites are taking part.
