I have been informed on this since users of GoDaddy revolted as soon as they found out they supported SOPA, about 10k + accounts transfered service host, making GoDaddy have a change of mind on how they see the bill, also, I have addressed this on FB, and some other major sites, that SOPA will be monopolized by the US government, there will be no more net neutrality, which means, you will lose your right to submit your own content, TAKE ACTION NOW PEOPLE!

I don't think that Congress understands what this could do to the gaming business, or what it could do to the internet's connectivity. +1 against SOPA!

So this is all in the US. But what happens to the other countries? Will the US be censoring our stuff too? Even tho we do not live in the US. The internet is world wide so how can one country do all this.

And if you thought politicians were smart enough to not invoke the wrath of the Internets.

This would affect me as a person who is an AUSTRALIAN citizen. In fact it is insulting to me and my country to think the US is just able to take away things not only from their OWN citizens, but from other countries as well.

It's painful to see that this isn't posted the EU side of news..

As it's currently worded it gives them power to expedite offenders in other countries to the US to face prosecution/fines also. Much less the "simple" ability to fine people in other countries.

You think you're fine because you're in like England or the like? You're not in any shape or fashion, you would have to follow the red Chinese iron fist, erhm, SOPA also..

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.

Im 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.

Ive 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.
That's the first time I've ever seen a BLUE post.
