Wow, this would take us back to the stone-age.  It feels like a hidden agenda to control the masses, and not just about the entertainment industry.  Since the internet I've watched actually more movies in theaters than before.  This strikes me as similar to oil companies killing the electric car, and pharmaceutical companies paying off those finding cures for diseases.

Yes, and it starts in the US and all the rest of the world will follow the 'leader'. This is just the beginning, it will get worse. I hope the Americans will protest massively, but I doubt it will be of any use. The world is going down more rapidly then I had imagined...



Why sopa laws not only affect EEUU


Sign the petition against soup to the U.S. Department of State.
Michael Geist has written the reasons by which citizens from other countries than USA also we should protest against SOPA. Geist refers to Canada, but most of what he says can be applied to any other country. What follows is a slightly modified from his written text:

Some of the major Internet web site, a list which includes Wikipedia, Reddit, Mozilla, WordPress, and BoingBoing today do a blackout to protest against U.S. law referred to by its acronym sopa () and the law on protection of intellectual property or pipe (Protect IP Act). The Bills of the United States.UU. they have generated a massive public outcry over the proposed provisions, which could cause enormous damage to the Internet and freedom of expression. Slashdot joins this blackout. Although there is little that Spanish speakers from around the world we can do to influence legislation in the United States.UU., there are many reasons to believe that it is important to participate

Firstly, the provisions of soup are designed to have an extra-territorial effect on a global scale, which is manifiestará of especially strong form in countries in the environment of the United States.UU. SOPA treats all web sites dot com, net, and dot org as national domain names in the United States.UU. for the purposes of this Act. In addition, soup defines national Internet Protocol addresses - numeric strings that constitute the real address of a Web site or connection of the Internet - as a Protocol Internet address to which the Organization of allocation lies within us jurisdiction. However, IP addresses are allocated by regional and non-national organizations. The Organization for the allocation of IPs in the United States.UU. He is called ARIN, the American Registry for Internet numbers (American Registry for Internet Numbers). Its territory includes the United States.UU., Canada, and 20 Nations from the Caribbean. ...

Secondly enterprises and non-U.S. web sites can be easily under the target of a lawsuit according to sopa. The draft law grants the United States.UU. jurisdiction in rem on any web site that does not have a connection with the jurisdiction of the United States. For these sites, the United States.UU. give jurisdiction over the property of the web sites, and this legislation opens the door to judicial orders that would require Internet providers to block sites and search engines to stop linking to them. If an owner of the web site from outside the United States wishes to challenge the order for blockade, the law of the United States.UU. imposed in another way, so that an owner may file a complaint (which is described as a contra-notificación), the owner must first accept the jurisdiction of the courts of the United States.UU

Thirdly, millions of people around the world use daily legitimate web sites that would be affected by the legislation. SOPA points directly to the soul of the Internet and the activities conducted therein, or create an entry in Wikipedia, write a comment on Reddit, host a WordPress blog, participate in a free software project, read a story on BoingBoing. If we remain silent, in the long run we can find our favorite sites have been licensed by this legislation.

Fourthly, the strategy of intellectual property in the United States.UU. It has always been premised on the export of its rules to other countries, including Canada. The law Sinde in Spain, legislation which bears similarities to sopa, is a direct result of the threats of retaliation in the United States.UU. If not adopted laws backed up by United States. Or the pressure for the adoption of Act.

SOPA virtually guarantees the continuation of this state of affairs. Not only it is likely that the United States.UU. they began to incorporate similar to sopa requirements to other Governments, but sopa codified in the laws of the United States.UU. the protection of intellectual property is an important component of U.S. foreign policy.UU. and it provides more resources to lsas embassies of the United States.UU. around the world to increase their participation in the foreign legal reforms.

Wikipedia is on strike for 24 hours, protesting against SOPA/PIPA

For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia.

WIMN’s Voices: A Group Blog on Women, Media, AND…

Best Thing on the Internet Today: #SOPA author is an online pirate!



 

Posted by Jennifer L Pozner
January 18th, 2012
 


Now that it is well past midnight EST and I’m no longer keeping new content off of WIMN’s Voices as part of the SOPA Strike against online censorship, I can finally post my favorite thing on the Internet on Jan. 18.

Hipster puppies? A perennial favorite, but no. A video of the Muppets edited to look like Miss Piggy is singing “F*ck the Pain Away” by Peaches? LOVE, but… no. And despite how many laughs I get from the oh-so-wrong Annals of Online Dating, that didn’t win the ‘net today, either.

So, what was the best thing on the Internet on the day that Wikipedia went dark and Google redacted its name in protest against potentially devastating SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)? Why, it’s the way-too-good revelation that Lamar Smith, SOPA’s author, stole a photograph without permission and used it on his official campaign website. That’s right, folks, the man responsible for this censorious bill is an online “pirate” himself — which could result in his campaign website being tossed offline lickety-split should SOPA pass:



 (Graphic via You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login)

This national day of action against SOPA (and PIPA) is just the latest in a long line of battles media justice activists have been fighting to ensure that access to information and innovation online doesn’t get sacrificed to corporate interests on the alter of Big Media lobbying cash. Since it’s now 1:00 am (and since my guess is that most WIMN’s Voices readers are already familiar with these bills) I’m not going to write a long description of why SOPA and PIPA are such threats to creativity, prosperity and security online. Instead, I’m going to thank all of you who blogged, wrote, signed petitions, tweeted, changed your Facebook avatars to “Stop SOPA” icons, or showed up in person to anti-SOPA protests… because your activism is working. Members of Congress are already dropping the bills like the campaign-endangering sinkholes they should be.

For more information on how and why SOPA and PIPA are a threat to your ability to the Internet as you know it, check out the extensive resources at:

Just went to those sites and they're not loading (for me anyways), there were some others ones as well, like RIAA, MPAA but those sites seem to be running.  I wonder how long the sites will be down for.

They are doing it in protest of internet censorship apparently.

That's why I believe we need Ron Paul as President. I really think he's our only hope. He's the only one who is against the government meddling in everyone's business. He's pretty much been black balled by the media and they either ignore him or mock him. Which is very telling. Hopefully people are starting to see that the one the media ignores is the one that probably best for the common folk.

First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they fight you.
Then you win.

At least 7,000 websites black out their homepages in protest of SOPA and PIPA internet censorship bills
Thursday, January 19, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

NaturalNews) On January 18, 2012, thousands of websites from around the world came out in protest of two pieces of legislation that threaten to censor the internet as we know it. Google, WordPress, Wired.com, Wikipedia, Tumblr, The Daily Paul, reddit, NaturalNews, and thousands of other websites censored portions or all of their homepages and content in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (HR 3261), and the Protect IP Act (S 968), which would essentially give large media conglomerates and the federal government unbridled power to censor the internet.

The website SopaStrike.com says the protest is the "largest online protest in history," and its creators are urging everyone who encounters a censored page to contact their Congressmen and oppose both SOPA and PIPA. The page also contains a full list of confirmed participants in the blackout, as well as an "unfiltered list" of all additional sites that said they planned to participate:
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Wired.com, for instance, participated in the protest by censoring most of the headlines from its landing page with black boxes, while Google did the same thing over its own logo -- both of the websites were still functional, however. The Daily Paul went even further by literally censoring all the content on its page, and redirecting all links to the SopaStrike.com page where defenders of freedom are encouraged to take action.

Over at reddit, which normally contains all sorts of user-submitted content, visitors were greeted with a "REDDIT IS DOWN," message, as well as live updates about the status of both SOPA and PIPA. WordPress also took aggressive action against the two censorship bills by blocking all user content from its homepage.


Why SOPA and PIPA threaten legitimate web content with censorship
Last summer, NaturalNews warned that the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property bill was basically a Trojan Horse that would allow the US government to bypass normal legal procedures in targeting websites that may contain, or link to, pirated content (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login). And its sister bill in the House of Representatives, the now infamous SOPA bill, threatens to do the very same thing (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

Both bills have been crafted under the guise of protecting intellectual property rights against piracy, particularly overseas piracy by foreign websites, which is a valid purpose. But as we have said numerous times before, the broad scope of the language in the bills threatens many legitimate websites with arbitrary takeover or shutdown by the US Justice Department, with powerful groups like the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and others prompting and guiding this enforcement action behind the scenes.


Protest leads to temporary 'shelving' of SOPA, PIPA still to be voted on January 24
The outcry against SOPA and PIPA has been so loud and effective that, according to House majority leader Eric Cantor, SOPA will now be shelved, and no vote will take place "unless there is consensus on the bill." This decision represents a huge victory in the short term -- but a potential vote on the bill could still rear its ugly head at any time, and most likely at a time when nobody is looking (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

PIPA is also still a threat as it is reportedly set to be vote on January 24. This is why it is important to continue bombarding Congress NOW with opposition to both bills. You can take action against SOPA and PIPA by visiting:

Sec 105 of SOPA threatens freedom of health speech, aligns with FDA Trilateral Cooperation Charter to potentially eliminate access to dietary supplements
Thursday, January 19, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
NaturalNews) Identifying threats to health freedom and freedom of health speech often requires connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated verbiage in one piece of legislation and a trade agreement, for instance, or reading between the lines to identify the full intent or scope of a provision or phrase added to an unrelated bill. And this is the case with the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA), which contains language that could one day target websites that sell, promote, or otherwise talk about the benefits of dietary supplements.

Section 105 of SOPA, entitled Immunity for Taking Voluntary Action Against Sites that Endanger Public Health, provisions that service providers, network providers, advertising services, search engines, domain name registry services, and other parties that handle internet content will be immune from prosecution should they decide to arbitrarily pull sites that "endanger the public health."

What is considered an endangerment of public health in SOPA? Websites that offer, sell, dispense, or distribute prescription medications without valid prescriptions, or sites that do the same with prescription medications that have been "adulterated or misbranded," according to the section. The definitions of "misbranded," "prescription medication," "drug," and "valid prescription," are also notated with references in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and the Controlled Substances Act.

On the surface, these guidelines may seem appropriate as there are many websites out there selling fake prescription drugs to unsuspecting buyers. These drug products often contain harmful additives or other inappropriate ingredients that can make patients sick, or even kill them. So it makes sense to allow service providers to shut these sites down, right?


Regulatory convergences could one day reclassify dietary supplements as 'drugs'
This is the part where connecting the dots and reading between the lines comes in. Remember back in October when we announced the quiet development of a North American Trilateral Cooperation Charter (TCC) that seeks to integrate the individual dietary supplement regulation guidelines of the US, Mexico, and Canada into a single, "harmonious" regulatory protocol (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Well, based on where this is all headed, dietary supplements could soon be reclassified as "drugs," or even declared to be "medication" that requires a prescription.

If this sounds a bit crazy, consider the fact that Canada is currently in the ninth round of negotiations with the European Union (EU) to establish a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), according to Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (FAITA). This agreement will basically standardize trade protocols between the EU and Canada (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

The EU, of course, has already adopted its own Food Safety Directives (EUFSA) that outlawed many dietary and herbal supplements last year, and made many others available by prescription only, as if they are drugs. These directives come from the same authorities that declared late last year that water does not prevent dehydration (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

To simplify the situation, if Canada adopts EUFSA through CETA, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) synthesizes US regulatory policy with that of Canada and Mexico, many dietary and herbal supplements now freely available in the US could one day be available by prescription only just as they are in the EU!

This is why any language that targets unapproved or adulterated "prescription medications" is dangerous, especially when that language permits that such targeting can take place outside the rule of law as it does in SOPA. This is just one more reason, of course, why SOPA must be stopped.

Twitter announces it will censor some tweets; activists worried
Policy would allow same message to be seen in some countries but not others

 
By Nina Mandell / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Friday, January 27, 2012, 8:15 AM
.





Twitter service may be getting spotty in some countries.

The micro-blogging firm announced on the company blog Thursday that it plans to change its censorship policies to comply with different countries' regulations.

"As we continue to grow internationally, we will enter countries that have different ideas about the contours of freedom of expression," the post read. "Some differ so much from our ideas that we will not be able to exist there. Others are similar, but for historical or cultural reasons, restrict certain types of content, such as France or Germany, which ban pro-Nazi comment."

PHOTOS: CELEBS WHO OVERSHARE ON TWITTER

Users' tweets will be blocked in a country where they are against the law, but shown in nations where they are legal. For example, a pro-Nazi tweet may be scrubbed in Germany, but would appear on the user's account if read in the U.S.

When Twitter removes a comment, it says it will clearly mark when a Tweet has been censored and send it to the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse, which is creating a database of tweets deleted not only because of censorship but also as a result of cease-and-desist notices and copyright infringement.

The news comes a year after Twitter played a crucial part in the Egyptian revolution and other Arab Spring protests.

Twitter was also credited with being a key tool in the Iranian protests of the 2009 elections and some pundits pointed to the service as key in the 2011 Tunisian revolution.

The move, while it could be disappointing for some revolutionaries, follows a similar policy to Google, The Associated Press pointed out — and could help Twitter expand from 100 million active users to more than 1 billion around the world.

"One of our core values as a company is to defend and respect each user's voice. We try to keep content up wherever and whenever we can, and we will be transparent with users when we can't. The tweets must continue to flow," the company added.

On Twitter, users protested the move with a #dontcensor campaign.

Media advocacy group Reporters Without Borders also announced on Twitter that it would send a letter protesting the move.

“Reporters Without Borders is very worried by #Twitter’s decision to cooperation with #censorship,” the group tweeted.

Hello ACTA, SOPA, PIPA and NDAA; Anonymous and Occupy are coming for you
         

FreakOutNation
February 28, 2012

In a stunning move Occupy and Anonymous have joined forces in what’s called, “OUR POLLS” – A new joint effort  to hold politicians accountable to We the People. The blatant disregard of our politicians from both sides of the aisle is mind boggling — so now, they’re being called out for giving into deep-pocketed lobbyists and passing laws to boost corporate profits, all at the expense of our individual liberty.

This is not the first time Anonymous has targeted officials over their support for the NDAA. The ubiquitous group of activists dumped a massive amount of information on each elected official supporting the invasive Act.

Their statement reads:

Our Senators and Representatives showed how little they cared about personal freedoms when they voted overwhelmingly to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA allows for the indefinite detention of individuals based merely on a suspicion or allegation of sympathizing with questionable groups or causes. This act is a prominent threat to the inalienable due process rights of every US citizen as laid out in the Constitution. It allows the military to engage in civilian law enforcement, and to suspend due process, habeas corpus or other constitutional guarantees when desired. Our congressmen passed one of the greatest threats to civil liberties in the history of the United States. Will we hold them accountable on election day?

Will we hold our elected officials accountable for supporting rigid Internet censorship laws such as SOPA, PIPA, HR 1981 and the ACTA treaty? The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) aimed to crack down on copyright infringement by restricting user access to websites that hosted or helped facilitate pirated content. SOPA and PIPA’s ambiguous, broad wording would have cast a wide censorship net around most of the Internet, thus creating questions of due process, burden of proof, and privacy violations. The proposed laws were lobbied and paid for by Hollywood, RIAA, MPAA and other massive media companies and would safeguard entertainment industry profits at the expense of essential freedoms, the Internet and constitutional civil liberties . Even if the goal was to merely regulate pirated content, the ambiguous wording demonstrates that the authors and supporters of SOPA and PIPA have little-to-no understanding of the Internet’s architecture or the frightening implications of the legislation.

What can you do? You are one person. You have one vote. Use that vote on November 6 to hold your elected official accountable for supporting bills such as NDAA, SOPA and PIPA.

We are calling on voters, activists and keyboard warriors under all banners to unite as a single force to unseat the elected representatives who threaten our essential freedoms and who were so quick to minimize our individual constitutional rights for a quick corporate profit.

Follow @OurPolls and @AnonPAC for updates, news, leaks, and calls to action.

Below we have a couple lists for you to consider:
(1) All US Senators up for reelection in 2012 who voted to support the NDAA and who still support PIPA

(2) All US Representatives up for reelection in 2012 who voted to support the NDAA and who still support SOPA
