SOPA PIPA WTF?

Is It Online Piracy? Holy mother of pearl. The US government is currently debating two pieces of legislation designed to protect a few rich entertainment companies from illegal downloaders* at the very reasonable and rational cost of completely destroying the internet as we know it.

If either of these bills pass, it will mean that Sony or the law-suit vultures at the RIAA or any other corporate copyright hoarder can shut down any website in the world by merely claiming that they somehow infringe on the complainers god-given right to milk every ounce of profit from the creative works of artists.

Here are just a few of the websites that SOPA/PIPA might conceivably destroy for the crime of “allowing links” to accused “pirates”:

  • Facebook
  • Google
  • YouTube
  • Wikipedia
  • Twitter
  • Reddit
  • And thousands more

*Illegal downloaders are NOT FUCKING PIRATES. Blackbeard was a fucking pirate. Illegal downloaders are teenagers, moms, grandmoms, and your mom. Calling something like 65% of the American population “pirates” is a really asinine attempt to shore up their obsolete music and film distribution monopolies by demonizing and threatening anyone and everyone.

Don’t take our word for it. Read more and make up your own mind:
