it has to do with this whole SOPA/internet censorship thing. wikipedia, google, youtube and a bunch of other sites are doing stuff like this in protest.



they are trying to get rid of our e-liberties. fuck em, nothing can get in the way of my free music and pr0ns!

 Well are they so greedy and stupid? I mean the only reason why people are not ripping up the streets is because they are lost in the internet. If you take them their internet away i am sure that we are gonna watch some nice riots.

Shit is fucked.
I'm not even from the US, but I'm scared, because this censorship thing really could become real. Those fuckers in government are capable on doing everything for that extra buck.

I've sent messages to 3 out of the 5 Florida representatives listed on wikipedia in the past 20 minutes.

I put something like "Stop SOPA' or "SOPA is Censorship" in the titles and just copied and pasted a two sentence rant of opposition for each.

Representatives won't sit and read every e-mail tooth and nail but if they get flooded by a whole bunch they will listen for the sake of their reelection.

It's imperative that our generation stands up for freedom of speech on the internet.

It is a vital resource that we must protect for many generations to come.

I'd hate to have to explain to the next generation that we were two busy playing farmville or facebooking, to write letters to let our presence be

known, and stand up to corporate censorship when we had the chance.

Meh, some form of this bill will be passed eventually.  It will be watered down (as it should be), but if you think online piracy can go on forever, think again.  Enjoy the Internet as the lawless domain it is while you can.

Am I the only one taking this shit serious?

I'm going to dig this thread up a year from now when all the videos we post on youtube have to have original music or none at all.

We better start learning how to play the guitar now.

signed it. Just read the bill and it is insane. And to the guy above, it would mean that Canadian sites which could be connected with copyright infringement (aka any foreign site) could/will be blocked from google ads, google searches, and use of sites such as paypal, and if they try to fight back they can come under US jurisdiction and be sued. They would also have to cover the legal fees of the plaintiff and/or loose their domain name. This shit is FUCKED but I don't see it happening in it's current form.

as a musician who has literally not made a dime off of an album i released this year, this SOPA bill is complete bullshit.  it isn't hurting musicians, its hurting the middlemen who have no business profiting off of art in the first place.  the business model has completely changed in the last couple of years, freeing artists from corporate bondage, and these guys are pissed that they're getting left out.  art is not business.  media should be free for everyone.  if you like an album and want to support an artist, buy a physical copy for your personal collection.   go to a show when they come through your town.  if you "illegally" download it, fuckin a.  at least you got to hear it.  the rise of popular culture over the last 100 years has put artists on a pedestal, grossly inflating their monetary value in our society.  do "artists" like lady gaga or soulja boy deserve to be set for life because of their profound contributions to our culture?  i think not.  even less true for a group of assholes sitting in an office somewhere taking the lions share of an artist's income for being a fucking middleman.  

progress rolls on; these big media companies aren't adapting to the times so they're trying to take their toys and go home, and putting the culture of the world in peril in the process.  and if you're an artist (of any kind) who only dreams of getting rich off of their talents and vision, you probably should have never tried to be an artist in the first place.

Yes taking it seriously - signed the petition and called my two reps today. But I'm still getting drunk in support of free pr0nz and sponsor-me videos set to Nicki Minaj.

are you from canada? if so, are you familiar with our wanna-be-president prime minister? if this shit passed in the US congress it would only give our PM more of a reason to try and get something similar passed under canadian law. no thank you.

im saddened by my increasing dependence on reddit. its funny but its also full of the homos and losers you would expect. for every funny thing theres 3 cat pictures and unfunny success kid memes or some bullshit like that.

my uninformed canadians you should watch some daily show sometimes not only is it hilarious to laugh at the giant mess that is the 2012 election (o lordy those republicans, what will they do next?) they also give us insight on things that wiil inevitably affect us somewhere down the road. we are the retarded siamese twin of the states,

i think this picture describes our relationship:
