Sopa and Pipa

Post by RTM08 on Thu Jan 19, 2012 9:33 pm

Well the Yanks are starting their wave of global censorship.I only know of 2 high profile cases thus far but more are soon to follow.

Megaupload is the first site to bite the dust - despite these laws being AMERICAN, they have managed to get 5 people arrested in NEW ZEALAND for offences against US piracy laws.

Worse still, Richard Dwyer, a student at Sheffield is being extradited from the UK for an offence that is illegal in the US, but not in the UK, for his site TV Shack.

They are going after any sites they see as breaching copyright, and are trying to push through SOPA and PIPA.
