All you could do was what the government "mind controlled" you to do.. And the government was "Big Brother" and that's where the popular phrase "Big Brother is Watching" Hence why some people think with the internet in todays society that "Big brother is watching you"... But yeah thinking/writing is called "thoughtcrime" which is death.. It's been a while since I read this book but it's very good and I recommend it to you for a taste of what the future might bring. I think 1984 and fahrenheit 451 are two books everyone should read in their lifetime. They really get you thinking.

    I figured SOPA wouldn't go through. On the other hand, there's always ACTA to worry about, but I doubt that'll go through either.

    Hmm... Perhaps the voters screamed loud enough and Congress is finally starting to take notice? With primaries going on and such, they have to actually pay attention to what the voters are saying so that they know which band-wagon to jump on so that they get re-elected, "promoted" and such. After election, I predict new loads of fresh hell dished out to us....

    ACTA already went through..? Though I suppose maybe not wherever you are. United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea apparently signed it in 2010.

    No, I don't think ACTA's gone through yet. It's become a growing concern around the Internet recently, though.

    I agree but ACTA is now on the loose it carries a part of SOPA with it and its almost unstopable.

    No you're talking about anime and that's copyrighted and you're going to prison.

    If they really want to go after something, it's libraries. They rent out CD's and movies for free. That means, though the library paid for one or two copies, many people are going to use those copies, meaning they will not pay for the movie. That means for every sale to the library they will lose dozens, even hundreds or thousands of sales for the movie. Same for CD's, not to mention how easy it is to borrow them to rip MP3's and return them. Think about the lost revenue. The RIAA and MPAA need to sue every library they can into oblivion.

    And yes, someone will say that most libraries are public ones, but that just means the municipal governments will have to pay up. Or they can go through the records to sue as many people that borrowed it as possible.

    Even worse, there are places where people go to rent movies for a fee. Sure, these places buy new movies in fairly high amounts (depending on popularity), but each one will be rented by many people, meaning thousands upon thousands of lost sales. And these criminals make money off this. Even worse, they then sell off most of their new stock at a lower price than retail, whch means each one purchased by someone in this way is another lost sale.

    Unfortunately, this is what they have the power to do without SOPA. I really don't think that it was coincidental that the day after the huge internet blackout, they take down Megaupload. It was probably a way to say "It doesn't matter how many petitions you sign, we can take down these sites anyway." The United States has the authority to take down sites that aren't in the country (The servers were in Hong Kong, I believe) as well as arrest people that aren't citizens of the country.

    The thing is if they keep trying to push bill after bill through, I think people will eventually get bored and think "Well they didn't pass it before so we don't need to do anything about it." Then since people won't get too mad about it, it can pass with little resistance.

    I could sort of understand how people could think "Oh this is just another conspiracy theory by crazy people, everything's fine." because who actually wants to believe that? But when this is happening right in front of you, I just don't get how people can still be in such denial.
    For instance, has anyone heard of the section in the NDAA bill that was quietly passed on New Year's Eve despite the president promising he'd veto it? It's been getting a little controversy but not as much because people don't know about it.

    This country's pretty screwed up right now...

    SOPA and PIPA were proof that somebody didn't boil the frog properly. They've learned and they'll be back. They've just realized that they made a mistake letting the internet stay: it thaws the minds of of the ignorant masses.

    Remember all those Orwellianistic /(post)apocalyptic future sci-fi books and movies and picture them as real and in our times. Sorry you had to be born in these times.

    also DONGS!

    Sadly its still not over. SOPA and PIPA may have been defeated but now ACTA is here.

    A friend of mine passed this on to me. I'm sharing this with everyone. This is just a heads up but it's in the begining stages.

    ACTA in a Nutshell –

    What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

    Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

    What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.
