Internet No Longer Free

Via Android Authority we bring you quite disturbing news in regard of new bill that is quite likely to be passed on as new law in USA. Learn why we believe “SOPA = Internet No Longer Free”.

More power to “Hollywood & Entertainment” industry

Because  it gives again, more power to “Hollywood & Entertainment” industry, it may lead to unauthorized censorship and may influence (in bad way) internet in the whole world we think it should be opposed. Introducing more and more restrictions over the internet, its users and providers will not stop piracy but it will stop freedom and evolution of the web. As it is it may also lead to complete lack of privacy and anonymity. As above mentioned Android Authority we will use Wikipedia to tell you first what SOPA is:

“The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R.3261, is a bill that was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011, by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) and a bipartisan group of 12 initial co-sponsors. The bill expands the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods.”

SOPA breaks the Internet

If it is passed you might wake-up to quite new reality where your ISP constantly monitors what you do in the internet, where not only download but streaming copyrighted material will be a felony.

It may also prevent new start-ups from succeeding if they will be market by entertainment industry as illegal (as once YouTube was!). If you are an American or if you have friends in USA let them know what is happening – remember that what today is in USA tomorrow might be a law in your own country as reach of “Hollywood” can go really far.
