I'm afraid it's going to get much worse before it gets any better. Not just on the copyright front.
I feel it's best that I don't go into what I really think...as I fear I may end up making Renegade look tame. So I will simply suffice with saying, the prospects are indeed horrifying.
That sounds like a challenge~!
Well, to be clear, I can't say what I really think either. I think we're very much on the same page there. We are limited in what we can say because we're not really in a free society. We have that illusion, but it's just that - an illusion. It would be reckless and irresponsible to say what we really think. (I'm willing to talk to anyone about it in person over beer though. The more I drink, well, I either become more honest or I get tangentially silly.
I've posted a few thoughts here:SOPA and PIPA are Anti-Free Speech
The entire "piracy" stuff in those bills are just distractions. They are NOT about piracy. They are about establishing legislation to be used to silence dissent.
To be clear... They are totalitarian pieces of legislation for use by an oppressive police state.
You know where this is going. Yep. There.
As a sidenote, the Anonymous have responded. Try accessing www.justice.gov or www.universalmusic.com now.
Sounds like a good start. I'm all in favor of a scorched earth response from the masses.
+1 for Anonymous!
They also hit the RIAA and MPAA!

If SOPA passes. We will break things.
These guys only make me love them more and more.
Remember -- SOPA and PIPA are only there to put into law what the government is already illegally doing. And to suppress free speech. http://rt.com/usa/ne...ion-authorities-231/
American authorities helped issue arrests on Thursday for four people in New Zealand that they say are responsible for the website.
Ahem... Since when do "American authorities" have jurisdiction in New Zealand?
Does anyone get where this is going? Global police? Police state? Police planet?
