    OK, I watched that video. It was interesting in many ways. Back in the day of my young, old age, I used much of that software, then quickly learned to use aftermarket versions of it. The malware to download on those places was crazy.

    Though I know Cnet/ZDnet is huge business, and I rarely look to them for good advice anymore, why did they publish that article I posted above?

    Hell…most of us know big money just about runs this country now, but too many pieces just don’t fit with that puzzle.

    To say that all those named in that video are all in on it together with government in a conspiracy is like saying it is almost hopeless now.

    I followed the early legal battles between file sharing and their enemies.

    The format of that video seems to be…marketing their videos too…

    I did learn a few things from it though.

    I don’t buy the conspiracy theory but I do find it hilarious that CBS may have created their own enemy. :P

    Decided to Google and see just how many of the people on the SOPA supporters list actually DO support this thing.

    Well, that and some ordinary people wondering how the hell they wound up on a ship in the first place. :P A lot of these guys are pissed at the Chamber of Commerce because they never did support SOPA in the first place and don’t know why on earth they wound up on that list.

    In addition, on this site, you can boycott GoDaddy:

    You don’t have to transfer any domains, but you can do so if you so choose. Remember that you want GoDaddy to stop support of BOTH the SOPA and PIPA bills.

  • cadaverousmob 12/24/2011 11:05pm

    Go Daddy lost 21,054 domains in 1 day because of SOPA: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2011/12/24/go-daddy-lost-21054-domains-yesterday-in-wake-of-sopa-pr-disaster/?awesm=tnw.to_1CMq1&utm_campaign=social+media&utm_medium=Spreadus&utm_source=Twitter&utm_content=Go+Daddy+lost+21%2C054+domains+yesterday+in+wake+of+SOPA+PR+disaster

    There goes another one~ Just like the other ones~ :D

    Also, something that just occurred to me. The supreme court will probably just strike these down as unconstitutional anyways unless they’re amended A LOT.

    The Justices are all in a job until retirement or death and all live in mansions. Trying to bribe them is like spitting in the ocean so the MPAA will have to rely on justification… which they don’t have.

    Without the mountain of dollar signs infront of their eyes they’ll be able to tell just how full of shit SOPA and PIPA are.

    The Copy[rite] Act was unconstitutional when writen by a school book publisher, Noel Webster, and a judge, Benjamin Huntington in 1789 and was unconstitutional when signed by George Washinton.

    This has been obvious for centuries but is still propogated as the United States’ legal HOAX. Regardless; I am one of the 15 supporters. I believe SOPA is a good idea after copy[rite] is recognized as an INDIVIDUAL personal right and limited to author’s life plus fifty years.

    A movie won’t have just one copy[rite] but is group’s artistic production and movies need protection by a law very much like SOPA but NOT like USC Title 17.

    Internet wire communications should already be regulated by the FCC.

    Have a merry christmas and remember the Supreme Court addresses cases brought to it but otherwise is silent.

    A corporation can’t have an individual right!

    Then how can they buy elections, and put so much money behind this bill???

    In the UN-democratic United States corporations are treated as people but have not been given the rights of individuals as far as I have learned. An individual right may only be asserted by an individual. An individual has rights that can’t be purchased or sold. These rights are impossible to transfer and cease upon death of the individual. The Berne Convention protocol allows an individual’s right to be maintained for fifty years by heirs or others for preservation of the reputation of the recently deceased.

    The BACKWARDS United States’ copy[rite] or the created corporate ritual for controlling copying will now develop into both a corporate copy[rite] ritual and exclusively an individual HUMAN RIGHT.

    There goes another one. Graphic Artists Guild is against SOPA now. http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20111227/00454417194/graphic-artists-guild-changes-mind-withdraws-sopa-support.shtml

    Graphics Artists Guild becomes a conspirator of GOOG in another fraud like the one disguised as a class-action where Graphics Artists Guild “sued” Google Inc and hope to conspire with Google Books to create an alternative to the unconstitutional US copy[rite]. They all say it is settled although it is NOT. I opposed the unfair and dishonest conspiracy in NY as did the DOJ and thousands of others.
    IT IS NOT OVER IN NEW YORK!

    Not paying attention to BACKWARDS US copy[rite] law whatsoever are you GamerLen? That is OK. Apparently nobody here or in the copy[rite] BACKWARDS USA is either. That will change very soon.
    VERY SOON!

    Copyright troll Righthaven’s domain name now up for auction

    http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/12/copyright-troll-righthavens-domain-name-now-up-for-auction.ars

    Interesting indeed.

    I have not read up on it yet…

    The Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) of Southern Nevada is a nonprofit that sends trained volunteers to the site of severe accidents, suicides, fires, and violent theft. The volunteers comfort family members, witnesses, and bystanders—traumatized people who can’t be helped by anything found in an ambulance.

    TIP might seem an unlikely target for a federal copyright lawsuit, but it found itself hauled into court last week for posting 14 local newspaper articles about TIP and its volunteers to the group’s website.

    The lawsuit was filed by a company named Righthaven, an entrepreneurial venture formed by a Vegas attorney and the publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It was filed without warning or notice, and it seeks more than just statutory damages and attorneys’ fees; it asks the court to “direct GoDaddy and any successor domain name registrar for the Domain to lock the Domain and transfer control of the Domain to Righthaven.”

    SOPA in itself is NOT a violation of any amendments or an invasion of privacy — get that through your heads! Copyright infringement is terrible and should be removed. The premise of this bill is perfect, however I disagree with the means.

    SOPA is great in it’s premise, however it gives OTHER PEOPLE the power to limit our civil rights. I firmly believe this will culminate into destruction — as if they have the power they will certainly abuse it.

    SOPA is not an infringement against anything, and these internet kids need to stop bringing up the First Amendment.

    I oppose it SOPA, and hope you do too, but don’t argue with these terrible arguments.
    Logically it should pass as the only issue is our ideology and lack of trust in the government, which I believe is correct, but the government will pass it, as they want power and will assure you they will not abuse their power.

    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with SOPA.
    Again I am against it, as I distrust the government.
