    SOPA explained... O_O

    Buckle up before you hit play...

    “The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime.”

    “There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of his exercise of constitutional rights.”

    Sadly, I can't say I'm surprised.

    Wonder why he has such faith in our "law-makers" when they are usually as corrupt, subversive, and criminal as TV villains...

    First impressions count.

    He lost me in the first second; I gave it three seconds to be sure, but he confirmed that he's not worth my time.

    I don't even care if he agrees with me on SOPA; he's obnoxious and unlistenable.

    Never heard of anyone "rage quitting" on a youtube video till now.

    The long and short of it:



    Companies that are SCREAMING about piracy are actually the ones that were near exclusive distributors of the software.

    CBS, disney, cnet, all sorts of hands in the cookie jar on this one.

    Major companies at first distributed the software, now they are suing the users of it and lobbying for more control.


    This guy claims they made tons of money off the downloads (from Ads I would assume) and they did it all because they knew they could gain a lot of control over the internet in the end.

    The issues require a LOT of investigation. Let's hope this is fully fleshed out long before it enters the horribly-repressive system of "justice."
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Sounds like the investigation is done... the guy states they have nearly 100,000 pages of docments or whatever... he also says that if this passes, it's not going to be easily undone... so the time for action is now...

    No, that isn't what I said, not at all. What I did say is that this individual's delivery and demeanor painted him as someone playing with less than a full deck.

    I think he was just trying hard to maintain people's attention for a topic he thought was important, but after reading a couple comments here it appears to have been counter-productive.
