If you planned on visiting Wikipedia.org today to look up celebrity discographies or birth dates (like I often do), forget about it; Wikipedia has gone dark for 24 hours to protest Obama's proposed web piracy bill.

The online encyclopedia ranks up there with Google, Yahoo and other high traffic websites as the most visited online. Wikipedia, and other websites, took a stand against 2 bills: the Protect Intellectual Property Act and Stop Online Piracy Act, which are under consideration in the Senate.

The bills, backed by the motion picture and recording industries, intends to put a stop to online piracy and copyright infringement by infringing upon the rights of visitors to popular websites.

If signed into law by President Obama, the PIPA and the SOPA bills would require ISPs to block online access to foreign websites which supply many of the bootleg movies and CDs that are now available for download online.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) claims the online piracy costs as much as $250 billion per year and costs the industry 750,000 jobs.

But critics of the bill say the SOPA act would infringe upon "free expression while harming the Internet" and "severely inhibit people's access to online information."

Wikipedia says the bills would place "the burden on website owners to police user-contributed material and call for the unnecessary blocking of entire sites."

Critics say smaller websites (such as Sandrarose.com) "won't have sufficient resources to defend themselves" against a shut down for hosting content that may be considered pirated (such as Beyonce's new album).

Wikipedia went offline at midnight on Jan. 18, and plans to stay dark for 24 hours.

    First of all...Wikipedia is not a credible source for citation. What’s sad is that my college students have the nerve to cite them in their research papers and will quote them word for word. It wasn’t until I created a fake update and showed them that anyone can add changes to the majority of those pages that they begin to understand. Oh…and that big, fat, red “F” on their paper helps too. Rely only on scholarly journals, periodicals, and articles for research people!!!

    Sandra the Obama administration has opposed the bill. Please get it right.
    It is both the House of Reps and the Senate that introduced the bills and the White House came out against it. Please stop spreading lies.

    Actually since you are a regular fox news reader you should know the Chairman of Fox News parent company News Corp Rupert Murdoch is the one FULLY supporting this Bill NOT President Obama
    This excerpt is straight from your favourite news organisation Fox News
    "The Obama administration announced earlier this week that it would veto any bill that’s not more narrowly focused. "Any effective legislation should reflect a wide range of stakeholders, including everyone from content creators to the engineers that build and maintain the infrastructure of the Internet," the White House said in a statement. "While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet."

    Trust and believe sir i am far from being condition i usually get my new from the foriegn press because they tend to be way more harsh on us and have opinion from outside the US media machine. So please keep your genrealizations to a minimum. The truth is you have to understand how the game is played in order to see why it is played Obama did his part and has helped the average man more than Bush and actaully more the Clinton who actually set this economic downfall into play.

    So with all of that said I stan for Obama because at least he is up front about what he has to do to get re-elected and if he does then watch how he acts. Gonna be a rough one for anybody who goes against him with nothing to lose.

    Jay Bee: you haven't stated any facts. Just wrote very short sentences sloganeering and flaming people. You haven't done a very good job of helping people to understand your political ideology or whom you support and why. You're behaving in a very flighty and silly manner. This doesn't represent your views or choice of presidential candidate well.

    Far from feeble minded I am simply having a political conversation with a complete stranger if you feel the need to debase the other contributors then maybe you should reevaluate who is actually the feeble minded individual. Only people who have been out witted or shown to be lacking proper basis in their standing resort to petty name calling. So, peace unto you my brother and next time civility would be appreciated.

    This is some young white boy. I've seen it on many other blogs and web sites. Can't express his political beliefs because he has none----other than calling black people outside of their names.

    Bottom line is this
    There's no way to stop piracy through legislation. Piracy is a social problem caused by people not seeing the value in paying for the content that they consume. Even if you miraculously eliminated all piracy through some law, those people (most of us of course) would just move on to consuming something else that's free rather than pay for the content. There will always be free stuff out there to consume.

    More importantly, there's no way to legislate behavior on the Internet. If there were, we wouldn't have trolling, we wouldn't have kids harassing each other to the point of suicide on Facebook, and we wouldn't have websites dedicated to pirating movies and software. All that legislation can do is impose additional burdens on legitimate companies and individuals doing legitimate things with the Internet. It can't make what is already illegal more illegal in any useful way.

    More to the point, what SOPA and PIPA do is make it illegal for CNN, Sandrarose, TMZ and others to publish any post mentioning, for example, that you can download movie torrents from thepiratebsomethingsomething DOT org. (Note that I did not name the actual web site just the first two words and third words beginning letter, Don't want to get Auntie in trouble) Any who Why would that be illegal? Because if you didn't know about TPB, now you do, and now you know where you can get pirated downloads of lots of current movies for free. So if this posts get approved by sandrarose, by posting my post right now, it would be violating SOPA/PIPA by facilitating piracy. By making such posts illegal, SOPA/PIPA makes it illegal not just to pirate content or make pirated content available, but also to engage in any sort of useful discussion of piracy or piracy-related sites for any purposes, including academic research, news and information, etc. It's a very serious threat to free speech.

    The bill's goals, simply put, are absolutely nuts. And more importantly, within a day of the passage of a bill like this, the actual pirates will have already completely worked around it through technological measures. As John Gilmore put it, "The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it." What this means that there is no way to usefully legislate any sort of censorship on the Internet. It can't be done. It is technologically completely impossible, by design. Anyone who claims otherwise is trying to pull a fast one. This Law HOPEFULLY will not see the light of DAY!

    :bow: Thank you. It's the truth. Governing something as BIG as the Internet where it is not physically attributed to every day life (depends on which way you look at it) I say mental, socially, vocal while basically talking on Mute. The Government rules us with cops, the Judicial system, laws here and there mostly for our physical beings. I can't see how they can take over the Internet. Even though we let them have that power. However, yall know if this does happen. The first site to go would be WSHH because they contribute videos of fighting, sex, and other strange things to the net. Piracy or not Congress would probably see that as a negative contributor to the online society therefore abolishing Wshh First amendment rights to post videos sent in by users. (Even with their permission) That is where the problem would come in at. Trust me this is not only about music, movies and copyrighted material. This is a pretty big deal. We as a people have that right to fight this. On the other hand though. GOOGLE who is number one can pay to make this bill go away. The movie/tv/record labels association(s) paid $94 Million to congress for them to consider passing this bill, so they can stop loosing Billions. A small price to pay to have feds take over and shut a lot of people down. Now, since Google can match that ten times over. If they decide to. We wont hear about this for another ten years. :coffee:

    Jacked from Three Mile Zone

    Travis Barker's lawyers have just fired off a cease and desist letter to ediaFakeOut for posting naked pics of the drummer.

    Sources close to Travis tell us the photos are more than 5 years old and were "private and never intended for public viewing or to be seen by anyone else."

    We're told Barker has hired Evan Spiegel of the law firm of Lavely and Singer, who just sent the cease and desist letter to the website claiming the pics are an "unauthorized use of private photos."

    Let this LAW pass. Websites like that would be shut down with the snap of a finger. The African lawyer who owns fake out isn't budging. Although he did when Evelyn honey *coughs* slutzard Lozado from bbwives sent over a cease and desist letter for a post on her. Weird -_-
