According to what he said it wasn't the first time and it won't be the last. The media keeps trying to censor us. He also says at 12:17 that the media tried to pass a very similar bill named coica(Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act). The media will stop at nothing to gain control of the Internet it seems.
It seems as a game of Command & Conquer at this point. What I mean by this is that if NOD is defeated they simply go into hiding until the next game but if NOD wins there is no next game and its game over for everyone.

Thats exactly what I'm saying if its dealing with someone who wishes only to cause trouble such as spamming someone with nonstop curses and threats then in that case censoring is ok. If it is however censoring/removing the ability to share files just so the media can have more control over the internet, that is not ok.

I thought the politicians were the ones trying to control the internet?

Your telling me that the entire government is talking about something like this when they could be addressing other problems that actually do matter. Sure there's a lot of piracy going on but how the hell does this affect the government of the US? What the hell does SOPA or PIPA act do for the US? What benefits does it bring in at all? Why not focus on something that actually does matter? like animal cruelty or alternative fuel? If you ask me the government is being lazy or are using this talk about SOPA and PIPA acts to distract us from something really important.Just how they used the "area 51" rumor to turn people who think the government is trying to control them into people who think the government is trying to keep the existences of aliens secret. Some thing big is going on and it ain't pretty!

You where whining and acting like LOL was in the same boat as SOPA just because they censored you for breaking the rules. Thats not trying to control the internet its simply trying to keep the game fun for those who just want to play. Besides in the long run it hurts their game and community if they don't. People get tired of being harassed by their team mates and quit the game therefor it has to be done.

I'm just another voice in the crowd saying "I oppose SOPA". But every single voice counts, please email/telephone your state representative even if you are from a different country. It makes a bigger impact just to hear someone calling on you from overseas about your own country's legislation.
