ALL DIGITAL PHOTO FILES OR WEBSITES CAN HAVE "META-DATA” DESCRIBING THE BINARY MACHINE-READABLE DATA INCLUDED RESULTING IN DISPLAY OF ART.

This has been true since before internet wire communications were developed to generally replace telegraph wire communications internationally. See 47 USC §153 ¶(52)

All photo files can be marked as to the binary content resulting in the photograph being displayed by the application whether that be a web browser or offline application. These are similar to the optional alt tags in HTML. Most internet wire communication are illegal already and this will soon be addressed.

The obvious definition is linked above from law.cornell.edu.

SOPA and EVERY other IP bill will soon become entirely insignificant in comparison to enforcing laws already passed and ignored.

FREE SPEECH will finally occur online and “rights” to exclusively control attribution & copies will occur.

Your—very insane—quotes: “I could build a search engine easily surpassing GOOG[LE],” “Google Inc will face me before the Supreme Court,” and “SOPA will be entirely irrelevant once my federal lawsuit resolves.”

Dude, whatever you’re smoking, I want none. haha You are so delusional it’s really not even funny. And with your last statement, you revealed that you are: A) working for the RIAA; B) working for the government; C) in bed with either; D) all of the above. Any answer is the right one. :)

The simple overarching fact is that this bill is already sinking to the bottom of the metaphorical ocean. You’ve got previous supporters like GoDaddy and Gibson Guitar who are jumping ship so maybe you should jump ship, too. But please, for our sake, DON’T wear a life vest. hahaha

I would simply like to point out that pornography on the internet will not be eradicated just because we pass 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.

@gamerLEN
“You do realize nobody is paying attention to you anymore right?”

Did they EVER pay attention? Online and offline pornography will soon require authenticated adult viewership and that viewership dates/times be stored local to the computer used to display adult art.

Did you catch the online and offline part of the above? It is already technically trivial and has been trivial for twenty years or more.

Michael Henri Page Esq misled the Western District of Arkansas Magistrate Judge Honorable Erin L Setser and described the Google Inc search engine as, “For one thing, search is completely automated. It goes out, it crawls the web, it sees what’s there, and it reports it back. The machine has no way of knowing whether a picture is nude…”, as is totally incorrect and malicious. See Dkt 216 pp(71-75) and read the fairytale told by Google Inc in open Court.

Thanks to the info. Child pornography is not what I was referring to. Adult pornography production and consumption like with Teri Weigel was the copy+right portion I am referring to.

The Internet will be as censored as television and radio are censored when shown to anonymous people before I cease my lawsuit against GOOG, MSFT, and the FCC.

Copy+rights will be a personal “right” in the United States just as the right recognized in the rest of the Berne Convention Countries of the world.

All visual artist should have the right to control where their visual art is displayed to minors WITHOUT relying on filtration! Anything pertaining to a foreign website applies domestically.- BTW

In case President Obama chooses to bring back SOPA, we need to stop it. Please sign this petition to demand that Obama drop all support for Internet censorship (such as SOPA):

While I’m not too sure about the conspiracy angle I found it surprising that most of the top supporters of SOPA were ten years ago distributing the software that people used to download copyrighted material.

Oh yeah. I laughed myself silly when I saw that. CBS is basically the modern day Dr. Frankenstein in that they created their own worst enemy. :P

I don’t buy the conspiracy theory either, unless CEOs get psychic powers as part of their promotion package and can see the future, but it is funny.

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

Well thank you for that compliment. I still remember playing Gunship on my C64… when I was somewhere around 30.

Anyways….

This part could take away any privacy available to anyone in America.

“knowingly and willfully provides or offers to provide a product or service designed or marketed by such entity…for the circumvention or bypassing of a Justice Department-erected blockade.”

Now I assume most of us know we are walking on the entire planet while we are online, and there are many predators out there, both official and unofficial, that don’t have our best intentions at heart. And most know your standard browser and web connection track and record every step you make, for eternity.

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.

This whole thing reminds my way too much of why some say we need more laws to restrict legal gun ownership to prevent crimes by criminals that already cant legally own a gun in the first place.

The same old song they sing about how we need more laws to restrict law abiding peoples rights so they can stop the criminals from doing things that are already illegal by existing laws…

BERNE CONVENTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF LITERARY AND ARTISTIC WORKS

The United States has signed this treaty including Article6bis.

“…(1) Independently of the author’s economic rights, and even after the transfer of the said rights, the author shall have the right to claim authorship of the work and to object to any distortion, mutilation or other modification of, or other derogatory action in relation to, the said work, which would be prejudicial to his honor or reputation…”

Simple explanation approved by Congress making US copyrite law unconstitutional for violating the Fifth Amendment and the intentions of the Ninth Amendment. Unconstitutional besides being vague and unenforceable since 1976 when over-broad/vague fair-use exceptions were established.

US Courts will decide by 2012.

@ by centralizing authority heretofore granted by law to several agencies and by granting additional authority with respect to interstate and foreign commerce in wire []communication, there is created a commission to be known as the “Federal Communications Commission”.

“Commerce” is all they could regulate under that even if the internet is considered wired.

If I surf to other countries am I going on a “wire” to them?

Then there is that old “commerce clause” in the constitution that was so perverted to give federal government so much power…
