    Fuck! I use Comcast! >.< I guess I am off to new service then.

    EDIT: America, where the rich police the poor.

    So they get rid of SOPA to do this?
    I love how they don't say what can be deemed as piracy, which means they can do whatever they want to their users and we still have to pay. I love how living in a free country we are still being pushed around by the rich

    WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH MY AVATAR?!?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Meh, I've found that I download way more than I can consume, anyway. I download more games than I can ever play, more shows than I can ever watch, more music than I can ever listen to, more PDFs than I can ever read, etc.

    This won't affect me that much. I'll just have to be more selective about what I download.

    *EDIT*
    If anything, this will save me money because I won't have to keep buying more hard drives to store all the media I'll never use. I could even use the money I save on hard drives to...you know, buy the actual games/movies/books etc.

    My piracy has certainly died out a lot since the DS, PSP, and Wii have kinda died in terms of releases.

    I really don't pirate music that much with Spotify and I really don't need to pirate movies or TV shows between Netflix and the DVD collection of my friend.

    I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever really start pirating again outside of the odd copy of some old PC to play with another friend of mine.

    I just so happened to read this damn article, and I would like to say..... This will make no impact on piracy. I mean really do you expect people to stop pirating after such a law will be passed? I think not. This is gonna start some kind of anonymous activity, and some kind of internet war, and protests, I bet. This is kind of stupid, and will just make things worse. Oh well more proxies to go around!

    Not going to really matter unless you download from a unencypted source like the web, bittorrent etc. If you pay for something like encrypted newsgroups, they still wont have a clue what you are getting.

    Treat yourself to usenet paradise, or learn about blog distributed file-space links and how to alter cookies to bypass limits etc

    You know I've lost so much interest in this stuff it's not even funny. They have been saying this stuff will be happening for years now, nothing really changes. You're still going to be able to download stuff with low chances of being caught, just like usual.
