  •  Yeah tell that to your Megaupload buddies. (0+ / 0-)

    Anti piracy legislation will get passed.  It's only a matter of time before this happens you can rest assured.

    I find it really disheartening the callous uncaring  attitude you and others have towards the theft of IP that you would gloat about it.  Really?

      with SOPA advocates. You seem to assume that no one could possibly oppose the legislation once they understand it, and that opponents must be either uninformed or pro-piracy.

      When in reality most of us are simply concerned about the effects on the web community and civil liberties. Just because protecting IP is a worthy goal, doesn't mean we have to endorse every proposed solution, no matter how much collateral damage it will have.

      Judging by the number of legislators who suddenly expressed reservations and backed away from SOPA/PIPA this week, the only ones who didn't understand the bill and its implications were those in Congress.
