That Awkward Moment When The Room Goes Quiet And You’re Still Talking

Have you noticed that some of the Big Boys are pretty quiet right now? Have you wondered why? Well, let’s just say that if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, then the US Congress is one heckova┬ábrick-maker.

This quick video explains the likely legislative consequences of the Stop On-Line Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). Watch it and then, if you want, give your local legislator an ear-full, encouraging him or her to vote no on SOPA or PIPA. Because it’s all fun and games until someone loses an IP.

  3. Our government is so messed up…..

    Thanks for posting, I understand it much better now.

  4. This whole thing is so ridiculous… You can get 5 years in prison for uploading a Micheal jackson video… One more year than the Doc who killed him… Justice? I think not.
