In protest of SOPA & PIPA

We quote: "PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the US Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the US government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting 'creativity'. The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites -- they just have to convince a judge that the site is 'dedicated to copyright infringement.'

The US government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill."

      I'd also like copyright to be reduced to 10 years, or 30 if we're being very generous, but that's a whole other issue.

    2. Oh. That also wasn't in any way a reply to your comment, gnome. Just got a bit confused by the interface.

      But it's good to know you're standing against SOPA & PIPA. We can't forget about PIPA.
