Say “Bye Bye” to Google, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook , craigslist, and all the sites that you interact with your friends on, retain your social gossip from, and have fun with. SOPA the act to stop online piracy has many young people, and adults infuriated because its paying may mean the end to all those sites.
The act aims to limit, if not completely hault the access to sites that provide information they do not have the rights too. Although the act has good intentions, many believe that the way it is written will cause a downfall for not only site owners, but bloggers, rappers, singers, designers, and everyone else who uses the internet as a main source of income or publicity.
Congress believes that this act will help balance and control the amount of copyright infringement on the internet. People against the act think that this is just another way for the government to control us, as a whole. Many are going as far as saying that we no longer live in a democracy, and we no longer have a president. Those people are saying that if SOPA is passed, we can refer to our president as “King Obama.”
Since the announcement of the act , congress has lost a few supporters due to the very public protest of sites such as Google, and Wikipedia. What are your thoughts on the act?
