Have you heard about the blackout? Wikipedia and Google are some of the major site who have blacked out their pages in protest regarding the bills proposed in the US of A recently.
Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Senate version of the bill and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) are the bills that were proposed. In brief, it basically gives a corporation the right to shut down anybody’s site if they discover that their music or movies have been posted without their permission. This can be done without very much warning at all.
At first glance, this may appear to a fair law. However, this is just the beginning of the internet being controlled and edited. If this bill is approved then the power will be taken out of the individual’s hands and into the corporation’s hands even further. China’s shocking control over what the public can read and view on the internet will become a lot closer to home.
As a wise man once said: “Up the workers!” And keep control. Because our rights are being bought by corporations and sold to the Government.
