This would only go for foreign websites.
So basically. This would give the US the right to attack any foreign nations sovereign rights and it's goods by taking down any website based outside of your country.
Donot forget people. This will come back.
@dodgyplonk We can produce steel but can not compete. I do not know enough about copper to answer that question. The food part is 100 percent true and can be verified. We could be dependent on our own Oil but it would be too expensive. Also there would too many people in this country who would fight that idea. We produce so much food that a lot gets wasted, this part angers me. Many hungry could be fed. In part some of what you say is true but not becuase of supply.
@theholyrevenger Fuck You and Fuck Your Money and Fuck SOPA!, I will listen to what I want listen to,when and where I decide to. I have vast collection of paid for dvd,cds, blu-rays. I puchased many of them becuase i saw on youtube and liked it. or the radio. it is people like you that cause people hate our Country. So Go Fuck Yourself, you greedy MotherFucker!
@dodgyplonk Our ecomony is improving slowly right now, definately better than it was in 2009. This claim of ownership is far to complex to engage in a debate in this format. I do not agree with them on this.
@nfsmohpsp I must admin that this Congress is most inept in our history, most Americans are quite unhappy with them as I am I. This law angers me like none before, and it could destroy the internet as we know it today.
You guys consume as much as you produce. What contribution? so you provide your own oil and food, where does your steel come from? Where does your copper come from? How can you not see how dependent you are.
@dodgyplonk SOPA has been put aside becuase of widespread ojection to it. We have resouces. We control about 50 percent of the World's Food supply. We have more Oil than Saudi Arabia, but becuase of labor cost and strict regualtions. it makes it too expensive to use it. Most Americans oppose SOPA and are angered by it, it has many Congressman endanger of not being reelected.
Murdoch has been corrupted by his power, who gave him that power? The politicians at the behest of the Corporations,
THE BARSTARD, THINKS HE CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS!
I would like to put my boot right up his backside..
wow enough just isn't enough for these rich glutenous assholes is it? this whole sopa thing can go eat a dick, this will be a waste when someone finds a way around it like usual anyway, so yeah bring it on, as for downloads I cant wait for the film industry to go broke they get paid millions to pretend to be someone that they aren't while the real people do it tough and struggle to get by.
AMERICAN POLITICANS GET A LIFE INSTEAD OF MAKING LAWS THAT DONT EVEN MAKE SENSE!! YOU COULD JUST GO TO THE PIRATE SITE AND SHUT IT DOWN BUT NO EVERY SITE WITH A LINK IS GOING TO BE SHUT DOWN!!! F.U.C.K.S.O.P.A.I.N.T.H,E,A,S,S
I figured Ron Wyden was a Dem. I knew you were totally biased and partisan. Obama didn't get one Rep vote for the forced w/o reading bill, "Obamacare". Now, on this bill, Reps don't have enough to over-ride a veto. Without enough Dems to over-ride a veto, that would mean they expect Obama to sign it- right?
@conradojavier Oh my god yes they are! Watch the documentary outfoxed and see how much fox news is a lap dog of the republican party! Oh and Bill O'Reilly is the biggest embarrassment in journalism history!
But why all these videos spreading disinformation? Mayby SOPA is a bad idea, but to pretend it is something it isnt wont help. Sopa ONLY deals with websites dedicated to online piracy, NOT with a few users throwing in pirated links. So what he says in this video is incorrect. Spreading incorrect information do not help protecting freedoms. If the critizism is precise and realistic, it can be taken seriously. If it is full of wrong facts, it will not be taken seriously.
@kane445898 Not for long, as not only SOPA and PIPA would have effect on entire world, there is also a third threat of ACTA.
ACTA is a bill in works in EU for the same thing like SOPA, but as well limiting trade on other levels than networks
What is the deal with this misinformation??? The SOPA bill is absolutely clear that ONLY websights who are wholesale piratesites are affected by the law - NOT sites with a few piratelinks. If people want to oppose this law they should at least know what they are opposing. When Cenk Ugur says "makes alot more sense" he is talking about the SOPA act as it now stands! Sad to see well meaning and vital defenders of personal liberty make fools of themselves like Cenk Uygur does in this video.
People, please, find all the companies that support this bill and stop being their customers. In the meantime, try to buy stuff or support companies and organizations that oppose this bill. Boycotting is the name of the game and everyone around the world can do it. Please follow Wikipedia's example against GoDaddy,com and show that we are no longer slaves to a corrupt system that makes the rich fatter and the fucks the poor.
it hurts when people vote with their money doesn't it? that's why they have this bill, because piracy is increasing due to the fact that most movies and music made is CRAP and OVERCHARGED (in addition to all the commercial endorsements they get, especially for movies). If you make something good, mr. filmmaker and musician, i'll buy it to support you. If you make 1 good thing out of 20 though, then I'll have to compensate my balance by checking out ur stuff for free before considering buying
@InhabitantOfUniverse Sorry mate, you loosing a battle anyway. Once your video is on youtube, you have no choice what so ever. So what your saying makes no sense at all. I stopped paying for music a long time ago. I download everything. Why? Because i'm not paying way over the odds for something that may not be worth it. You have no hope anyway, unless your willing to join the Cabal like rihanna, jay-z kanye, beyonce, christina aguilera. Join SBTV to get noticed
You got a point there but again, as they say at that part of the video, if the website brought to court is a website that isn't dedicated to copyright infringement, the people that took the site to court are liable for court costs.
I'm sorry but anyone that thinks the US Government will shut down some of their best forms of income really needs a reality check.
America is dead.
We the people.
The people rule the country.
If the people rule.why is something that we DO NOT WANT TO HAPPEN happening? The removal of YouTube,and the removal of basically the Internet...does ANYBIDY other than the 70 year old dumb asses who don't even know what a keyboard is at congress actually want this?!
There is something that I really want some opinion on.
If you go to the Youtube channel keepthewebopen and watch their video titled House Judiciary SOPA Markup, Part 4 and move the video to 3:09:00, they talk about what sort of websites will fall under this law.
If I am correct and I ave heard it right, Youtube, Facebook and so on will not be effected.
@TooCool1993 haha... 60 mill? since google payed $1,65 billion for youtube, I don't think they will get payed off with 60 mill ;) Youtube has a ton of pirated materials on it... DMCA's are flying around like pidgins in the park...
If I had A choice to censor the internet or never see another Hollywood movie again, then so be it I choose to not see another Hollywood movie (good or bad). If this bill gets passed, fuck it I'm moving out of country and boycotting Hollywood movies.
What annoys me the most is that even whenver someone reports some type of infringement the Goverment acts even before actually confiriming that there is an actual violation. This law is very weakly constructed.
