I meant to do this a while ago, but I completely forgot until now. But read this article on Ars Technica if you are completely unaware of the bills in the current House and Senate and see what horrible atrocities it would mean for the internet as we know it.

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/10/house-takes-senates-bad-internet-censorship-bill-makes-it-worse.ars

What can you do about it? Visit either one of the following web sites:

http://americancensorship.org/

Edit: Eneia I changed the guild logo for a few days, don't worry I'll put it back :D

Did you see what Anonymous did? The FBI took down Megaupload so Anonymous took down like 7 different websites that support the SOPA including the FBI Website itself.

GO INTERNET TERRORIST!

If AnonOps makes an attack, I'm sure things will get interesting. It takes them a while to do things but when they do make an attack, it packs a punch.

Also, I was reading that there's another MegaUpload site hosted out of the Netherlands that is supposedly running but doesn't have a domain name yet.

What's even scarier about ACTA, was that it was created behind closed doors, information on it is not accessible, even with the Freedom of Information Act because the government says it threatens national security. On top of that, the U.S. has already signed this agreement with several other countries on October 1st, 2011.

Get ready to have everything you do on the internet monitored, get ready to have your laptops and iPods searched for illegally downloaded music and movies when you cross the border. SCARY!!!

Yeah the EU is already on this band wagon, though they are at least putting more thought into it than the US did. "OH HEY I WANT MONIES TO RUN FOR ELECTION FROM HOLLYHOOD /sign".
