Curious to know what people think of the Stop Online Piracy Art that's trying to be passed in the US. Naturally the popular opinion online is that it's complete fucking bullshit because of the effect it would have on how we obtain our entertainment.
These days pirating music is cool and practically everyone does it, the anime and manga community wouldn't be as large as it is right now without fansub groups providing us with download links to the goods soon after they air in Japan.
However over 120 major companies and organizations have shown support for the Act since it becomes a way for them to protect the piracy of their products.
When Sony showed support for the Act the hacker group Anonymous issued them with a threat saying that, “Your support of the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates, Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not.”
So what are peoples opinions of the Act? Is it a load of crap or could it mean a better future in the end? And what of the threats Anonymous issued to Sony? Are they justified or are they just being immature?
