PSA: SOPA and You

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 07:20 AM MDT | By Ash_735
First off, Happy New Year everyone! It's now 2012 and this is the first post of the new year on GTAGaming, we hope you all had a great Holiday and enjoyed yourselves! Now, I'm sure a lot of people reading this have heard about SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) which is a pretty big thing in regards of Internet Freedom, if you haven't heard about it, watch this video, the date has passed in the video but it does a brilliant job of explaining the act and how it will affect the Internet:


We just want to spread the word on this, if this bill passes, this website is just one of the many which would be wiped out and blocked for small things such as posting Fan Made videos which contain copyright music and just by promoting a video like that, we would be included as "part of the problem" under SOPA.

Now, this post is aimed at our North American readers, but even if you're not in the US, at least help the cause and spread the message against this, this Act will affect us all and people need to speak up about this! Feel free to visit Stop American Censorship for more information and to find out ways you can help prevent this Act from passing, below is a list of other websites which explain the situation and offer more ways to help:
