How is this a debate
people that disagree can debate [editline]12th January 2012[/editline] im sure people will be shortly having a go at me sorry for the inconveniance
I believe SOPA is bad but SOPA isn't as bad as everyone says, meaning it won't shut down the Web in any case.
see debate... anyway elecbullet our rights to freely browse the web will be taken [editline]12th January 2012[/editline] it will be illegal to download of garrysmod.org :(

All the negative comments about the effects of things such as SOPA and PROTECT IP always assume the absolute worst case scenario, which I find incredibly annoying. For example, if SOPA did come in, I really doubt that sites such as Facebook, Wikipedia and YouTube will get blocked straight away, they probably won't be blocked at all. This is simply fear-mongering on an incredible scale. Don't get me wrong, although I can understand the basis of introducing such measures to protect intellectual property, I don't support SOPA and PROTECT IP in their current states. However as I said above, such sites will probably NEVER be blocked, and that goes for many other sites as well. The whole internet (not even an incredibly small portion of it) won't shut down under either bill, it's not going to be the end of your internet life. Quit fucking whining about it, if you want to do something to prevent the bill, then sign petitions that go against either bill, and write to your local representative and senator and explain why you don't want to see either bill get signed in to law. You live in a democratic society, so fucking use your democratic rights. Hell, if you're that desperate, use your freedom of assembly if you have to.

That Starfox model you downloaded? It's a derivative work of Starfox, created and redistributed without consent of the copyright owner. If they felt like it they could sue you. Problem is that would be extremely bad publicity and they probably don't give a shit anyway. I find it extremely fascinating how every goddamn time the newest god-awful copyright act is being debated, everyone bitches about all the things that will become illegal... and half of them are illegal already anyway! "THIS ACT WILL MAKE TF2 VIDS ILLEGAL!" TF2 videos are already derivative works of Valve material. So yeah illegal. Valve won't sue though because they're not hyperdicks.
