    not really news
    from the looks of it, it's just a youtuber trying to get fame off a popular subject.

    Basically the big companies who are suing people for piracy are the ones who released the pirating tools in the first place.

    He is already famous on youtube, this is him just explaining the fact that people who are against SOPA are also the people who released the tools for piracy.

    The video linked was uploaded on the 24th of December, it now has 7,851 views.

    That's not famous.

    He has his own page, that video is just a re-upload, it's not too shocking it would have less views than the original.

    Well that's a mistake on my part; I don't care about SOPA.
    No idea why OP didn't just link to that one.

    Sorry. I'm currently juggling a few errands but I really wanted to get the video out. Als, yes the guy in the video has a very annoying voice BUT his points are valid. Even if a good majority of us here know what the fight is about and for, there are plenty more who do not and I'm just trying to do my part to pass the word.

    Thank goodness SOPA is exclusive to USA. I can't imagine what Sweden would be like with so many anti-piracy laws.

    Sadly, if Congress gets the bill thru, they raise the bar for anti-piracy laws on an international level.

    I do believe websites like Google, Tumblr, Reddit, Wikipedia and Facebook will make a blackout in protest of SOPA. Am I right, or...?

    SOPA affects every country. That is part of what will be passed with the SOPA bill. Any website, any host, any where.

    Typical American [censored]s.

    Sadly SOPA is not limited to the USA, it will effect the internet on a worldwide level since it will effect sites like Google and GBATemp will be effected by this law. This law is honestly the worst abuse of power the government has ever come up with and it needs to be stopped.
