Stopping SOPA/PIPA in the UK


http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/26143

It's a long shot, but at least you can sign an e-petition against SOPA/PIPA.

Also, if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologise, but it is for a greater cause.

US politicians are well-known for being sensitive to the concerns of foreign citizenry.

More seriously, contact your Member of Parliament and express your concern over SOPA/PIPA and how it will affect the UK. Either call their office, write a letter, or if you must, write an e-mail. An online petition would never even be brought to the attention of the legislative branch of the US government.

Er, yeah right... I can tell you now that UK politicians care about as much as those in the US.

What's always amused me when politicians come up with these kinds of laws is that they can't be bothered to create ones that are far more useful. For example, in almost all cases people are free to purchase half a dozen copies of a special edition of a videogame, and then sell them for $100s more than the standard price!

A much better proposal is to give stores the power to report such abusers to the studios so they can sue them, under a breach of fair trading. Make the "one item per customer" as law for all special edition games.

In the UK we have already lost the battle.

BT have to block a certain nzb site by court order and now we are on a very slippery slope.

Indeed we have got this lovley piece of legislation: Digital Economy Act 2010

Luckily the more draconian parts have now been dropped But it seems as Mastachief says only due to the fact they have found enough scraps of existing law to sensor the web.
