Exclamation Stop SOPA From Becoming Law


Congress is currently pushing forward a bill that they do not understand and will not make an attempt to understand. (sound familiar) The SOPA Act will create Internet blacklists and allow the government control over what is easily one of the greatest inventions of the modern age.

Many companies including Google, Facebook and more have rallied against this bill as well as many of the original architects of the internet.

My day to day job and entire livelihood has everything to do with the internet and this bill will create quagmires for hosting companies and stifle Internet innovation, is that really something we need in this current economy?

The bill even means that websites like PlanetSide Universe could shut down. How you ask?

Simple really, if one of you was to post an offending link (who knows what that means) and it links to copyrighted content I could be sued on the spot and PSU added to the blacklist. This could become a reality of the internet and it effects each and every one of you who browse it.

I urge everyone to contact their local congressmen either by phone or e-mail to show your opposition to this bill. Don't let the Recording Industries dictate what you can view on the Internet.

Contact your Congressmen.

A good article on the bill as it would relate to PlanetSide Universe.
