Hi All (in walker's good tradition)

The Anti-Internet Bill has NOT Been Postponed To 2012 … The Committee Members Who Support SOPA Sneakily Changed the Hearing Date to December 21st, Trying to Trick the American People Into Thinking It Was Over Until After the Holidays So We Won’t Fight Back! - (more)

This in part answers colossus question in another thread

But I tought SOPA by itself should justify a thread of it's own (mods feel free to judge otherwise, pls be attentative to the following reason also).

Why should anyone care about it? It does affect the internet censorship policy as a whole and internationally (not only in the US where the bill is being under appreciation).

RIGHT NOW, SENATORS ARE CONSIDERING A BILL TO CENSOR THE WEB.
SITES YOU USE EVERY DAY COULD BE BLOCKED IF IT PASSES

There's a rumor that some countries like Iran, China or other non-NATO are making their own network protocol, or "NationNet" in slang. Only the people in this country can use it, and cannot be transmitted to the outside. Dunno if that's another kind of censorship which is not able to be "spread" so that we cannot know what are they censoring. The SOPA is just blocking American themselves, but not the outsiders.

if it passes, it will mean the end of youtube and most sites that show or expose new media that isnt apart of the big 4. Practicly anything that has infringement or the possiblity of infringement will be blocked. Thats really bad :(

Im hoping it doesn't pass, information should be free and thats why the web exists today.

I mean come on Universal, Brittney Spears and Lady Gaga are not going to cut it for me, stop shoving this stuff down my throat and telling me to listen to it and like it. same with EA telling me to play Battlefield, I already played bf2, how many more times do you want me to play bf2?

Internet and especially YouTube and other platforms is like that for quite a while when you live in germany. Every third klick brings me this:

The video you have requested is not available for your region.


Internet censorship is already around for years, welcome to ne new age brethren and don't forget: Ignorance is strenght.

H-o-l-y s-h-i-t... this is one of the few moments where I find the term "1984" to be actually useful.

Well they are working for some years now to censor the Internet. It's the only thing the USA lobbyists are not controlling for the time being. But they are working to change that and if this bill will pass we will see more and more restrictions and more control on news.
The only source they couldn't control until now was the Internet and they are going to change that. The NWO is accelerating speed to expand their control on everything.:mad:

As I was trying to pouijt out..its not only in the USA...the EU is already censoring...abnd germany is even ahead of the rest of EU. Internet blocking for differnt reasons, even political ones on adjudication order is in discussion and it is already know that the police has infected soem computers with a trojan to spy them...including journalists...

I don't want to appear panicking but the StaSi (GDR secret service) could have only dreamed of such measures. And no, there is no craing out loud of the masses..indeed the majority does not care or even does support this measures.

I'm aware about Germany being ahead on censorship of the Internet here in Europe, I'm German myself, even I live in Italy. Why for Pete's sake everything is so f***ed up is beyond my understanding. The majority doesn't care because they most probably don't know better. A lot of people still blindly believes in what the mainstream media is feeding to them.

hi nettruckerm you know, it's all to protect us and our children from bad people on the dark side of the net. Mama and Papa will care for us first, and then will go on and bless the rest of Europe with the mighty purse of Deutsche Bank.
And let's not forget about the grey old man in the wheelchair who started it.

I believe there are not enough prisons to contain all the people who are discending in one way or another.:)

In any case BOT (back on topic) Rockfeller wanted the Internet to be shut sown already some years ago, because they just can't control it. IMO the USA has too much influence in Europe. They demand and order and our politicians jump, because they don't have any backbone to say no, to such kind of utter nonsense proposals.

We will see what the future brings. Just a year ago I talked it over with a friend and coplayer that one of the safes way to train for a assasination would be to use ArmA as a tool and VoIP for the plannign talks.

I read in the forums the US military uses something similar called the VBS ;)

Maybe we are already in a prison on a daily basis but dont realise it yet .... hmmmm, food for thought :) Prison without bars as they say.

The plan was to always suck everyone onto a computer and then dump on it with security and tracking, perfect really.

Yeah, and last tiem I was camping out our allyears "terrorcamp" (we used to call it that way since 1993) on a place called "The Canyon" we had two Super Pumas flying over us in search pattern formation at night...Guess what´, I really got a bit paranoid because I posted the "terrorcamp" date in some local scene forums.
