Hey guys,

I am french so I would not be able to do much besides give a small idea.

When the public is unhappy about something in France, we riot. So I would suggest you do the same seeing as LoL itself is a game worthy of a riot! (See what I did there?). And if SOPA passes...well we're all screwed, you can kiss goodbye to the internet until something else that will replace it comes.
Funsies aside, I will call all my American friends and tell them to send a letter/e-mail to their members of Congress, you should all do the same!

Tell them to get people to support SOPA and PIPA.

Online PIRACY should be a crime that people pay for. Support SOPA and end trolls, hack users, and piracy.
This is not the government's battle. Censorship is not the way to go. Handing the internet over to corporate hands is definitely not the way to go.

TotalBiscuit mentioned that someone from Steam (And I think this is their official stance on the matter) said that the way to beat piracy is to offer better service than the pirates.

The government should keep it's incompetent mitts off this very delicate subject.

You may have heard that Congress is currently considering a bill called the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA. While SOPA has a ton of problems, there are some significant issues that I thought fellow gamers might want to know about.

Iím particularly concerned that SOPA might stifle the kind of innovation that brings us games we love, such as LoL. The bill makes it far too easy for angry competitors to sue good law abiding companies out of existence. It threatens any company or website that depends on user-generated content, even companies like Riot. Instead of coming up with great ways to keep making games like LoL even better, companies will have to spend their money hiring lawyers. That's why companies like Riot, who want to protect the games they create, are opposed to SOPA.

Iíve been working on alternative legislation that would protect the games companies create while also fostering innovation. But we also need you to call your members of Congress and let them know of your opposition to SOPA. This bill has a very real chance of passing, and it is up to all of who want to protect the Internet to take action. More information is available at http://keepthewebopen.com/. Please make your voices heard in this debate! I will be happy to respond to your posts below, and will check back every few hours today and respond to as many as I can.
You, good sir, have caused me to post in an epic thread. I care little for politics, but you are now my hero. Just thought I'd let you know.

Okay I have a new bill, it's called the Send AirRhino to Prison Act (SAPA). Basically we stop a localized source of online piracy by putting AirRhino in prison forever with no contact with the outside world. That way he can never pirate anything! Ever!

Don't be a douch*|, stop PIRACY support SAPA

No, but some people are getting caught. everyone is acting like if this piece of legislation goes through, everyone that owns a computer is going to jail, if you talk online, jail, post on a message board, go to jail. NO. Dont break the law, you dont go to jail
Somehow the internet let people forget that you arent supposed to break the law, and now that our government is trying to enforce those laws, everyone is mad because their ability to pirate music and porn will be in jeopardy.
DONT BREAK THE LAW
you all arent complaining about an infringement on your REAL rights, youre mad because of the infringement on your perceived right to pirate copy-written content.'
you illegally download music or reproduce copy-written material, you are a criminal, and a website that allows it should be held liable too.
you obviously havent read the bill... http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:H.R.3261: here you go. ohwait, if sopa passes.. i cant link anything in the forums cuz riot will have to disable hyperlinks in order to prevent themselves from being affected by section 105.

Edit: ****.. riot is one step ahead of sopa, got the hyperlinks already down

Im actualy from europe but as far as im reading all this stuff im againts SOPA and PIPA "pipa in my language slang means *****".

SOPA hit in independence and freedom in internet.

I strongly recomend to vote against SOPA ,SOPA itself will bring changes in economy.

For example some one will make movie from game and will use unlicensed music in his clip then SOPA law can shutdown this video in an instant.
Also lots of movies will be removed from youtubewithout even giving an reason another example...u made movie from ur kids birthday u made music costiums and other things all by urself.
Then u put this in youtube but shortly after ur move is deleted with reason "logo of Mc Donalds in movie".
