FIGHT FOR FREEDOM! SOPA/PIPA THEY WILL NOT WIN

SAY NO TO SOPA/PIPA Fight for freedom! Revolution. If you support us! Share this! and say “NO” to PIPA/SOPA. Thousands of site joins the protest agains SOPA/PIPA! www.1stwebdesigner.com “PLEASE DO READ THIS! MAKE TIME!” The discussion over online piracy and the evils of SOPA and PIPA has gotten absurd. To hear some critics tell it, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and its non-identical — and in my opinion, far better — Senate twin PIPA (Protect IP Act) would “break” the Internet, turn Google and its cohorts into full-time Internet cops, and would end the freedom of speech as we know it. Not only is this hyperbolic, it’s based on what I’ll charitably call misinformation. For instance, some critics howl that legitimate enterprises such as Google could face ruin if they fail to spot and then bring down rogue sites that peddle counterfeit goods. Not true. PIPA, for example, specifically shields such companies from liability. It does not require Google or Yahoo! or any other legitimate Internet entity to scour the universe for infringing actors. The Justice Department — and probably more often than not — the rightful copyright holders will do that. Keep in mind, that the legislation targets foreign websites that would otherwise be out of reach of US law enforcement. Once an alleged scofflaw is spotted the government or the copyright holder must present evidence and convince a federal judge that the site isn’t merely flirting with illegality but is “dedicated to” copyright
