I don't think they won... did this seriously pass in congress? The senate will probably veto this, and I doubt the president would let this happen.

Tomorrow, we will all find out if this bill will be passed, hopefully it won't, I am okay with the piracy laws right now, but SOPA takes it overboard.

I have messaged Qyzbud on this matter, if he's going to do the blackouts. Will Twitter-message him to expedite the reading of said PM.

You can still use google, but not wikipedia (well, I'm sure there's some way around it). Google is acting normal, there is just a "black sheet" over the word "google."

With Wikipedia, it's easy: just press "esc" after the page loads 8-)

There's a better way, as mentioned in Wikipedia's SOPA and PIPA - Learn More page:
Is it still possible to access Wikipedia in any way?

Yes. ... You can ... view Wikipedia normally by disabling JavaScript in your browser, as explained on this Technical FAQ page. Our purpose here isn't to make it completely impossible for people to read Wikipedia, and it's okay for you to circumvent the blackout. We just want to make sure you see our message.

I was at work with dad, and I heard something on the radio about people giving cash prices for people who catch other people with piracy, it just pissed me off, in a "free country", you should have the right to do a lot of things, like if you want to go get stoned, it makes me mad how corrupt this "free country" is.

Guess what, the FBI is up to its old tricks again, who ever downloaded from MegaUpload or uploaded will be fined 150,000$ per pirated file, everyone is f***ed, now I really hate the USA! :x
----------
If they want to fine people, they can at least fine them with how much the original file cost, like a song would equal 1$, not 150,000$.

Ron Paul for president 2012!!!

I heard everything about SOPA. They suck. And PIPA? Both of them should be stopped!! If SOPA passes, my Wind Waker Z will officially be screwed. I don't hate the USA, but SOPA and PIPA is freaking retarded!! It could affect the entire world, and we should tell congress: f--- you and your stupid bill!

Wikipedia, the sixth most visited site on the Worldwide Web, said that it will go dark on Wednesday to protest regulation being offered in Congress and in the Senate. That legislation, says Wikipedia and other Internet giants, would stop free expression and unfairly kill sites. Source for this article: Wikipedia and others go dark to protest SOPA. Pirated software are all over the world. The fact that it is totally free, many people will do piracy. But in exchange of being free, downloading files illegally have a risk of viruses. Pirated software can carry viruses or may not function at all, hacked software can put your files into a great risk.

The article you linked to was published on January 17th, a Tuesday... and the whole "Wikipedia blackout" happened the next day, which was last Wednesday.

We appreciate your concern though :D

On Youtube, click the telephone in the logo and you can directly tell Obama to stop SOPA if you really want to. I did, click it and leave a message saying so.
