    You're right. But God help America should SOPA pass.

    Down for 1 day =! Down forever

    Considering Youtube hosts millions of 'Copyrighted videos' I really don't see it being up & earning anywhere near that much revenue if this passes


    You just said that google is more powerful than the internet
    You really don't understand what this is do you?

    SOPA won't affect official organizations and companies. It will only affect any privately owned organization the government or a big shot corporate owner (higher say on the political scale) deems "innapropriate". This means blacklisting websites like hacking sites, torrenting sites, and ESPECIALLY fringe discussion sites. They would never do anything to harm such a monopolized corporate power such as google. But taking google down for just a day would easily make their stocks fall rapidly, as well the amount of money they would need to give back (on top of the money they WOULDN'T be making that day and where they would still need to pay the millions of people that provide for their services) would be enough to hurt them significantly. It wouldn't take them down, but it would do a LOT of irreversible damage, or damage that will take years to fix. It just won't happen.

    FUCK I meant to put youtube /facepalm I might of made a typo but at least I don't believe in petty rumors about facebook shutting down And if you know oh so much about SOPA, why don't you iterate what it is in your own words? Obviously you know so much about it.

    That was meant for his "facebook shutting down" comment Also, you still haven't iterated what you believe SOPA is, because I "obviously don't know what SOPA is", so let's here it.

    SOPA will affect EVERYONE. Anyone who owns any sort of website that allows their userbase to contribute content is at risk. SOPA damages the internet as a whole, it is no longer free.. but it is filtered and controlled by those who have money.

    Google and Facebook don't have to take down their sites, they have various options like PSAs and other creative shit. I don't plan to take down MPGH on the 18th, but we're definitely going to do something.

    SOPA Stands for 'Stop Online Piracy Act' aka Destroy the internet
    Any website hosting copyright material can be Sent to court and the website can be taken down
    To put it shortly

    File serve can get taken down because someone may have uploaded something copyrighted to it
    Mega upload may have something copyrighted uploaded to it
    I'm pretty sure youtube has some copyrighted material uploaded to it

    this is a retarded debate...over a debate...this is meta retarded.
    Who gives a fuck, we shouldn't be asking every motherfucker to earn there stripes to protest even if nobody here knows the correct definition or how dark this places the internet. They know enough about it to know that its not good for them in the short run or the long run.
    Therefore we shouldn't be bashing on the people who in fact could be the ones to help protest with you...

    He clearly doesn't know how bad it will be for him


    IF THE SITE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO HOLD PICTURES, VIDEOS OR UPLOAD FILES IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GET TAKEN DOWN.

    your still not getting the point (now you dragged me into this debate over a debate)
    we all no the dangers of it and your continuing to bash on those who support your ideals even if there reasons aren't the same as yours..
