Someone like Romney, who goes whatever way the political winds blow to benefit himself, does not give me any hope on the outcome of this…

It will soon enough. Its becoming an election issue. Thanks to the efforts of reddit and some younger politicians who do pay attention to the internet several congressional candidates are campaigning as anti-sopa, as well as the republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

FOX, CBS, and the other big boys all support SOPA so they probably want to keep it out of the public eye… But it looks as if that may not be possible anymore.

Something to think about. As I posted before this bill could make all privacy software illegal.

I have been around here for a few years, and learned quite a few things…

If you watch the view counter here it always drops way off when Congress is on vacation, and goes way up on hot political topics in the media…

Yes, offline AND online pornography or nude photos will benefit greatly when the FCC regulates wire communications. Pornography and nude photos will be controlled in homes just as alcohol, cigarettes, and firearms are controlled currently.

Accesses by IPs to adult material will be required recorded on the accessing computer as well as the site visited… PERIOD!
The porn-filled “open internet” WILL SOON NO LONGER EXIST.

Google Inc has faced me in United States District Court for over three-years and have no possibility of winning and keeping porn-by-wire flowing.

I will not settle regardless of financial offers and this is now obvious. I have sought to add Microsoft Corporation and the FCC. There is no doubt in my mind that they will all face me before the Supreme Court eventually. I already know the end results of my case(s) but not how negatively search engines will be impacted or if they will survive.

SOPA and United States copy[rite] law are BOTH corporate hoaxes.

Boston D.A. Subpoenas Twitter Over Occupy Boston, Anonymous

On December 14, Twitter received a bizarre subpoena from the District Attorney of Suffolk County, which includes Boston.

It requested “All available subscriber information, for the account or accounts associated with the following information, including IP address logs for account creation and for the period December 8, 2011 to December 13, 2011

Speaking as a gamer nods to his screenname this is damn fine news for me. Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft (which withdrew their support a while back) are no longer supporting SOPA.

This comment thread has become too domainer and become useless.

How does one find a website when uses of even “snippits” by GOOG et al requires a license fee like it will SOON?

Why won’t GOOG et al follow the robot.txt protocol on my website?

Wow…

I watched a news story a while back about a guy talking to his friend on the phone about a mock terrorist attack planned to train first responders in his town. It seems his words caught SkyNets attention and some men in black showed up at his door to question him about his conversation that contained key words their bots caught.

How much more regulation do you want?

“For the purpose of regulating interstate and foreign commerce in communication by wire so as to make available, so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, a rapid, efficient, Nation-wide, and world-wide wire communication service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges, for the purpose of the national defense, for the purpose of promoting safety of life and property through the use of wire communications, and for the purpose of securing a more effective execution of this policy 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”, which shall be constituted as hereinafter provided, and which shall execute and enforce the provisions of this chapter.

I believe unregulated internet wire communications have been illegal since begun. There is no option besides enforcing laws already passed.

SOPA makes absolutely no difference after existing but ignored laws are required to be followed. I wrote wire communication software BEFORE Google existed. Ten years ago it was archived.

I am severely brain damaged but can write and deploy a Google Inc search interface today. I suspect most “programers” can too. My reservation software, see archived above, was so much above search engines in complexity.

Unregulated internet wire communications have been illegal since begun. No option remains besides enforcing laws already passed.

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety”

Benjamin Franklin gave us this worthless but neat-sounding drivel long before setting any of the slaves free this Founding-Father owned. NOT the life qualities ideal for an authority to cite regarding liberties? Mr Franklin granted his slaves liberty before death on April 17, 1790. Oddly enough, Benjamin Franklin died ONE month and 13 days before the initial copy[rite] FRAUD passed on May 31, 1790

Internet wire communications will be AS REGULATED AS TELEVISION when my Federal Court case(s) resolve(s).

SOPA is not the ideal way to end copy[rite] violation by wire. Making copy[rite] violation by wire a crime with MANDATORY prison time, – period.

Copy[rite] in the USA must be rewritten with the international Berne Convention personal copy rights entirely removed from the existing USA corporate copy ritual.

You brought a great analogy into play here. There was another country with a political party called the National Socialist Party that burned books and tried to censor what the populace was seeing. If memory serves they also had a Department of Homeland Security as well. I believe they were called the Nazi’s, and we all know how that movement ended.
