Default SOPA and PIPA get educated!

Hello all,

I am posting this because everyone needs to know about these two bills. I personally think the government has gone too far with this. Mainly because, according to this bill, we're going to have to censor everything we put on the internet like they do on tv and radio. On top of that, every link posted can't be associated with any site in any way with anything that violates these bills or the site in question faces being blacked out.

Our car forums without expressed written consent from their respective companies could potentially be blacked out by these bills for copyright infringement.


I encourage you all to please read up on this, please don't debate it here, that'* not why I made this thread.

Here are some links to help you get educated.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...ive/Learn_more

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROTECT_IP_Act

I encourage you all to please take the time to read into this and contact your local representative about it.


Thank You for your time.
