What do you think of SOPA and PIPA

Do you think movies, books and music should be free to all?  Or not?

I think without some sort of way to give those that make/produce them royalties from their work, production as we know it will slow, or even stop.

  If you actually believe it is about copyright protection you are in luck I have a couple bargans for you.  It's about tools for censorship of the internet.  https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/  just type in SOPA, PIPA censorship

Do you think copyright protection is more important than, oh, say, an unborn child?

Isn't this about illegal downloading of copyright protected materials that by doing robs the artist of those royalties?

I guess we will have to blame all the tea party and repubs for again trying to protect the rich and famous since they are the ones behind these bills.  However, neither bill has even gotten out of committtee yet and are being re-worked so that they will only affect what they are intended to do.

This article was written 10-years-ago but is as true today as it was then.

Re: What do you think of SOPA and PIPA

I don't know enough about it to be sure, but I think so.  If it is to protect copyright laws, I tend to like the idea.  If it is about controlling the content of the internet, I tend to lean towards free speech. 
However, I haven't read the details of what the laws would do, all I heard so far are sound bytes, and headlines, which can sometimes be misleading.
