    it just takes a few seconds to do.

    Don't get me wrong I don't condone Pornography, Piracy or Online media downloads or all the 900 trillion stupid videos on the Internet.

    I just feel I should post this, but i don't know if this is the correct spot to put this topic.(Probably not)

    So what's your point? The rights we have now were written by man, they can in turn be unwritten by man through clever wording and phrasing. This form of government we have now is a sham of what it originally was. I'm now certain that there will be a 2nd civil war and that it will happen in my lifetime.

    After doing a little bit of reading and research here's what I've come up with:
    If passed, this act allows the US Department of Justice to seek court orders on websites OUTSIDE of the US accused of copyright infringement. An example would be if a website in... Australia had an image of Mickey Mouse as part of their logo. The DOJ can now shut down said site for copyright infringement and the site has to pay injunctive relief (money owed for damages) to the rights holder. User generated material on YouTube and Facebook are protected by the act is aiming at foreign websites engaged in illegal or infringing material.

    Have any of you thought about that if the world is really supposed to end, this can be one of the triggers.

    This is just a small comment.

    I know the bills have been defeated for now but if anyone wants to watch a really informative and brief anti SOPA / PIPA video I really recommend this one:
