WHAT IS SOPA ACT OR PROTECT IP BILL VIDEO

I may sound stupid, but, honestly, I wasn't really paying attention about this very important event in the history of the Internet. I have been hearing about SOPA ACT or PROTECT IP BILL, but I didn't know how important it is. In result, I was just ignoring it. After watching some videos about SOPA ACT or PROTECT IP BILL, it just finally sink in. So, I beg you, please, have time to watch "WHAT IS SOPA ACT OR PROTECT IP BILL VIDEO", it might open your eyes why you, I and the rest of the world should fight this non-sense act. If you are an Internet User, if you have a Facebook, Twitter or Youtube account, this is a must read article...




WHAT IS SOPA ACT OR PROTECT IP BILL VIDEO


PROTECT IP BILL, also known as SOPA (which stands for STOP ONLINE PIRACY ACT) is not just something that we should ignore. There are some politicians, corporations and individuals who support this bill, perhaps do not know that it can break the Internet. They are a bunch of stupid and clueless individuals who do not realize that this SOPA ACT or PROTECT IP BILL can backfire to all of Internet Users. This bill is pure non-sense, it's not just about stopping the piracy on the Internet, but, also, we give the government the power to control the Information. As far as I know, no one owns the Internet, and it is created for Users, and it should never be restricted by the Government. Here are some basic things that we should know about SOPA or PROTECT IP BILL:


1. NO MORE UPLOADING STUFFS -If you upload a video of your dog, baby or any individual with a copyright protected music playing on the background, the website where you upload the video can be held liable, and you who uploads it. It gives the government the right to sue corprorations, search engines or individuals. That means NO MORE youtube, twitctv and etc. Think of it, isn't that crazy?

2. NO MORE SHARING OF LINKS -If you share something on Social Networking sites, such as link about tv shows, movies, musics, files that are copyright protected, the government can hunt you down and sue you. It means, you will have to be very careful on what you are posting on your Facebook wall or what you will Tweet on your Twitter account. Remember this, you can now be held liable for whatever you will post on the Internet. There's no more free will, they can now hold us all in their hands. It's just like they want Martial Law on the Internet.

3. NO MORE PARODY, DANCING OR SINGING OF ANY COPYRIGHT WORK -Just imagine, an ordinary Internet user can be imprisoned for five (5) years for posting any copyrighted work. That means, it can stop people from doing parody, making up videos with a copyright protected music playing in the background, or even as simple as singing your favorite pop song, and etc. 

4. SHUTDOWN UNAUTHORIZED SITES -It gives the government to block access to infringing domain names. Where we often get fresh and important information not just from websites, but, also from blogs, forums and etc. So, it's not just about stopping piracy, it's actually more on controlling almost everything on the Internet.

5. NO MORE ONLINE EARNINGS FOR BLOGS OR WEBSITES -Just for one single copyright protected file or link on your blogs or websites, they can ask the U.S. advertisers and payment services to cancel your account. So, if you are a blogger or an Internet marketer, this will really hurt us. Eventually, it's not just bloggers or website owners who will suffer from this, it can really bankcrupt even the biggest social networking sites.


HOW TO STOP SOPA ACT OR PROTECT IP BILL

All in all, this is not just to stop piracy. SOPA ACT or PROTECT IP BILL will really break the Internet. Don't these guys even think about the after effects of this bill? Even worse, this actually amounts to a chilling restraint on speech. And, don't you know that when China does this, people called it a "violation of human rights", but, these clever people call it "Protecting IP"... Bravo, these guys are genius! Wanna stop this crazy bill? Are you in the United States, if yes, CLICK ME!

Thanks Jomi for sharing this ! i really don't know many important things about internet system. I'm still reading,learning and always trying to do just the right thing. , ,

Ako Tungaw said...

sa pagkakaalam ko hindi na rin sila sinusuportahan ng godaddy...

Glenn said...

nice review jomi,magkakaroon ata ng blackout ang youtube, google, twitter, para magulantang mga tao at maging aware about SOPA.

tatess said...

this is stupid and whoever made this bill is not only stupid but really clueless of what he is into.

isp101 said...

@Myrnz -This article should at least, give us a little idea what will happen once SOPA is implemented. We should all fight to STOP SOPA, it's gonna cause a huge impact on the blogosphere, as well as to the Internet itself. Thanks for dropping by! =)

@Ako Tungas -Yep, hindi na nga, pero marami na rin umaalis sa godaddy, dahil sa initial nilang support sa SOPA! Thanks for visiting! =)

@Glenn -Tnx B, dapat lang na magkaroon ng youtube, google at twitter blackout, people are not taking this seriously, kasi wala pang nangyayari... =(

@tatess -I agree, this is a very stupid bill. The U.S. Government will spend millions of dollars just for this non-sense act, they should wake up and see the reality! Thanks for dropping by! =)

joy said...

they had to concentrate on more important things rather than this bill, I do not and will not support it. who else will be interested in browsing if that bill will be implemented?

Journeys and Travels said...

plain and simple, stupidity. How can they regulate the vast internet? thanks for this post JoMi

micheatsandshops said...

I have been hearing about this act for a while now and for me, I don't want this to pass. It's too restrictive and defeats the whole purpose of the internet!

Mei said...

That is insane! It's like our freedom doesn't exist anymore! Let's stop that as soon as possible!

Sining Factory said...

Boooo! Nonsense! I think maapektuhan nito ang freedom ng bawat tao lalo na tayong mga bloggers.

Angela Ricardo said...

This is plain absurd! The government need to take a closer look on what they spend on! All the best to you and your blog. Happy 2012.

Ewan ko kung anong mangyayari sa cyberspace if ever na e implement ang ganitong panukala. Well this is the end of the Bloggers :( na siguro.

At kung sakali magkatotoo nga eto well guys for sure isa na ako sa di gagamit ng internet :P.

Baka di ko kasi matiis magshare ng links eh hehe.

c5 @ battlingasthma.info said...

I haven't been looking into it yet...until I HAD to read your blog (you know why :P) and I'm glad I did. Now I know. :D Good thing GD retracted its support for SOPA.

crumpylicious blog said...

US will be like in CHina? everything is controlled =(

alwin said...

Been hearing about this issue, especially since there were a lot of godaddy subscribers who transferred service. Thanks for sharing. Maybe the people supporting this are still living in the caves

Jhackie said...

I have no idea of this bill.
thanks for sharing this.

Gil Camporazo said...

Well for me, SOPA has sense. Everyone should be protected from his own, original works. And blog or site that earns money should be properly regulated. There are copyright law to follow and there are copyrighted articles which could be used under the fair use law. This is no non-sense article. It has really a sense. Let's give other the consideration of their own works, of their intellects, of their creativity to be protected and not to be exploited or used commercially without proper recognition of their rights and ownership.

it's ridiculous. They could shut down youtube and itunes if that's the case.

mary mary quite contrary said...

The Psalmist said...

yuuki said...

nice post about SOPA, hopefully people esp US citizens become aware of what they are getting into...

Christia's World said...

Holy snap!!! Folks from the US, CLICK THE LINK!

Thanks isp101 for sharing this.

Ion Gonzaga said...

SOPA will definitely stop the fun online... problem with its big name supporters is the lack of deeper understanding in it. for them, having read the word "piracy" as what it advocates for is enough to support it. lame.

nice list

ralph said...

what a bill... just like saying no more www... LOL... thanks for the info, bro.... appreciate it... Yahweh bless.

Jonathan said...

This will surely destroy online freedom. The entire online user experience will change and be controlled, so this destroys creativity. This bill is sad and I hope it will not be passed.

Blobber Boy said...

Wow I am not aware of this "SOPA", it seems like they want to bring back the era of no internet, I wonder what would happen if that would push through...thanks for sharing this sir jomi

Gilbert Canda said...

what if natuloy nga po itong sopa? What about blogger's life? Saan na sila and what are alternatives?

Better na gumawa na tayo ngayon ng mga niche sites which is related only to one topic.

Sir, do you want me to share some ideas to increase your click through rate for GA?

I've notice you id not put GA below post title.

Here's how..
Look for this code:


Put GA code above that code



PLACE AD CODE HERE


Thanks, you're mart blogger, so you deserve GA's best pie.

Ane said...

Tsss! ang stupid nitong ACT/BILL na to sa totoo lang! They should find better things to do other than meddle in things they can't fully comprehend!

Anonymous said...

hey if internet gets saved ill be soo happy!! WTF... is wrong with the gov./ & Obama man there so retarded!!!

Vic said...

SOPA is good if all the people in the world have equal net worth. But that's not the case. SOPA will only favor those giant companies who can buy their own copyright. Small companies will surely be wipe away. It's true freedom and fair competition in the Internet market will never be the same again. Also, the consumers will suffer.

Blobber-Boy said...

Hi sir jomi, I just shared this post in my FB account, i was planning on making a post also but I might not explain it well and this post explained it well enough.
