So what is the "against" deal with SOPA, I'm trying to learn here, but i only read debates about people that confuse freedom with piracy?
- Social Networks > It's fine to share and embed publishers virals from YouTube, movietrailers from iTunes etc etc, that's not going away.
- It's not fine grab the latest David Guetta song and post a youtube of yourself being an arse. Make your own music or pay the fee, getting hits, piggyback riding on artist track and reputation
- It's also not fine to illegally copy warez, MEGAupload down? GREAT! SOPA makes it possible to take the rest down as well.
- It's not fine to have 14.321 songs on your iPod, which you've downloaded illegally. If your not willing to pay 14k$ to fill your ipod, then be more selective in what you buy, just like in real life.
People think because it's digital life, "real" world (as if there is a difference ?!?) rules no longer count, and looting and stealing are "generally accepted"
I'm all for SOPA. I think it's time to give rightful owners a stick. and reset the online values and status quo, as people clearly take the piss with piracy.
Again if you are an artist you can do what you want, your shit only gets taken offline if you steal other peoples work (something you shouldn't do in the first place) last but not least SOPA only enforces if rightful owners complain. It's not some Big brother "this site as something we don't like, let's take it down" Act. There are already several other acts making that possible.
So yes, go SOPA, or any of it's re-incarnations is not the problem, people seing freeleech as a birthright is the problem
What are you trying to prove?
