A lot of things contributed to the demise of the infamous Stop Online Piracy Act, a 2012 legislative proposal to severely restrict online content sharing.
There were blackouts by content sharers Wikipedia and YouTube and thousands of citizens who called or emailed their members of Congress. Ultimately President Obama came out against SOPA, as did lawmakers on the left and right, and the bill was shelved. Now a key element of SOPA is back in a report from the Commerce Department’s Internet Policy Task Force and the protesters are back. The Commerce proposal would make it a felony to stream copyrighted works without permission. That might include the parody and homage music videos that clog the pores of YouTube. Many entities are battling the Internet Wars for control. YouTube (Google) has already disabled Press TV’s new account under pressure from the Israeli-American Anti-Defamation League (ADL) that ordered the video-sharing site to end the Iranian channel’s live broadcast in an act of censorship leading up to the Syrian & Iranian end game war. No problem there right? WAKE UP PEOPLE.
