Do we really want to give morons like this full power to just shut down websites? It's already bad enough we have Viacom, WMG, etc, thinking they own everything on YouTube with their buggy auto-detection software which can get videos pulled if as much a person HUMS a song that falls under their copyright! So come the hell on America, stand up for yourselves, spread this about and make it bloody known that you're against it, unless you're happy just handing complete control of the Internet over to corporations.
Would it be completely outlandish to ask that this thread or some type of synopsis of this whole act be posted on the front page? I know it's not exactly GTA-related, but it would greatly help get the word out. I know I didn't put all this information together the best it could have been, so if you do decide to put it up, feel free to add more to it. You're much better at posting news.
