    The OPEN Act

    The Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act.
    It is a bill introduced by the US Congress.
    It's suppose to pose as an alternative to SOPA and PIPA.

    In how long have you seen the "People" actually do anything. 99% of the American population are lazy fucks who believe what they see on the liberal media and just go along with whatever the government says. They'll leave the fighting to "other people", and the majority will agree with the government when those who fight are labeled as terrorists. No, the people < Government for the sheer fact they've let the government get this far already. No one's picked up the first rifle and rallied at the nearest pubs, no one's going to move a muscle for anything other than the TV remote or the computer keyboard.

    As far as I understand the OPEN act will only effect websites that promote copyright and there has to be a court process involving a website prior to any action and does not involve any take down but rather a cease and desist order (much like the one MPGH recieved from Nexon a couple years ago). It basically removes incentive for piracy promotion but doesn't harm the internets. I'm much more like to support this, but I'm only going of what I've read on one article.

    If the OPEN act garners enough attention here I'll sticky this and close the SOPA thread.

    I haven't read the OPEN act, but if it is in anyway similar to SOPA, I'm out.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    It's end goal is the same but it's process is completely different and it's being supported by a number of Anti-SOPA companies and the MPAA doesn't support OPEN, so it's in my books.

    It seems to be much more balanced and fine. It's a scalpel as opposed to the broad sword that is SOPA. However I can't go on one article.

    On the contrary. The government is very clever, sly, and corrupt.
