This is the official Whitehouse.gov petition to stop CISPA 2.0 - I can’t sign it because I’m not in America but this bill would affect more than just Americans, it’ll affect anyone and everyone who uses the internet.

Please Sign it!

((If you are American or are naturalized, Sign. It. This is not a request. It is a command. Because this is not a freaking joke, the same way SOPA last year was not a joke.))

[NEEDS 96,000 signatures, only has 3,000. SIGN! GO GO GO!]

Guys, even if you’re not in America just leave the state blank when you sign up and you can still sign it.

In other words, GO GO GO GO GO THIS IS SO IMPORTANT DO IT NOW.

We got someone a fluffy chicken for way less than this, don’t tell me it’s impossible. THE INTERNET DEPENDS ON IT.

THIS IS RIGHT NOW OR ELSE WE’RE ALL FUCKED.

Not American so GO DO IT FOR ME OR I’LL THROW CUSTARD PIES AT YOUR MOTHER

I was wondering when we’d see some action against it!

SOPA is back

That was fast.

A few days ago the news broke that the pending Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was put on hold until consensus was reached.

Although the announcement was rather vague, some news sites and blogs declared SOPA dead, or “shelved,” or erased from history.

Wishful thinking, because today SOPA is back in full force.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith just announced that the SOPA markup is expected to continue next month.

“To enact legislation that protects consumers, businesses and jobs from foreign thieves who steal America’s intellectual property, we will continue to bring together industry representatives and Members to find ways to combat online piracy,” Chairman Smith said.

“Due to the Republican and Democratic retreats taking place over the next two weeks, markup of the Stop Online Piracy Act is expected to resume in February.

“I am committed to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to send a bipartisan bill to the White House that saves American jobs and protects intellectual property.”

Fuck you, Lamar Smith.

As much as I enjoy reading dystopian novels and whatnot, I’d rather not live in a world that’s modeled like one.

It’s to “protect” Americans from those filthy Foreigners (whee xenophobia/possible racism)? Ugh, right, buying it.

She Thinks Too Much [Such Girls Are Dangerous]: We need to talk about the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

ACTA is dangerous and devastating legislation essentially proposed and funded by corporations that can and will end the internet as many of us know it as well as limit or even outright ban generic medications and severely hinder agricultural development and the helpfulness of…

ACTA explained - Animation.flv (by Inf0rmNati0n)

I know the video is quite long and we’re all still a little shell-shocked by the effects of SOPA, but it’s the best explanation of ACTA out there and I can’t stress enough how important it is that you are in the know. Sign the petition

Alright people, we need to concern ourselves with ACTA

chocotaur:

Five facts:

1. ACTA isn’t the “European” SOPA. It’s nearly GLOBAL, and will apply to every country that signs the treaty.

2. ACTA is far more aggressive. ACTA will not simply affect websites and have them blocked out of the internet - its measures go as far as surveillance of anything you share through private channels.

3. ACTA doesn’t have a campaign against it that is as wide-spread and organized as the SOPA one. This is DANGEROUS, as there’s less time between now and the final signing of ACTA.

4. ACTA has effects on healthcare, trade, and even tourism.

5. ACTA has to be stopped.

Let’s start spreading the word and organizing a good, solid response to it.

They couldn’t pass SOPA so they took down Megaupload instead?

Yeah, it’s cool that Anonymous took down a bunch of major sites as a protest, but that’s no reason to like them.

waitingonthesilentshelf:

Anonymous is overwhelmingly racist, sexist, and ignorant. It’s made up of mostly angry young white guys. Also, um yeah those websites going down sucks for those organizations but there are a lot of lower level workers who will have to deal with SO MUCH SHIT because those websites are down. 

^Worth repeating. Good on them for doing useful things sometimes, but they still kind of suck as human being most of the time.

Internet war is going to suck for everyone.

According to lawyers… (SOPA) doesn’t shut down your website and remove it from the Internet. It just makes it so that people cannot, in any way, access the website. So it’s sort of like coming up with a plan to prevent teen pregnancy that includes filling penises with cement.

Really? ‘Nerds’? You know, actually, I think the word you’re looking for is ‘experts,’ to enlighten you so your laws won’t backfire and break the Internet.

JON STEWART, on members of Congress considering the SOPA and PIPA bills exasperatedly calling for “nerds” to help them understand SOPA and PIPA, on The Daily Show.

Why does Congress bother convening at all?
