Today I’ll only be leaving you with an infographic (above), and a video (below) to get a better understanding of the situation we are facing. I won’t pretend to understand all the elements that the SOPA is representing, but I will however respond with whatever I can do to avoid this act taking place.
“SOPA makes it possible for companies to block the domain names of web sites that are simple capable of, or seem to encourage copyright infringement.” – LifeHacker.com.au
Essentially, websites like YouTube, Facebook& Tumblr may be blocked for hosting content that may infringe copyrights.
Until further notice, I will be supporting this notion by placing a censorship tag on my banner. If awareness of this campaign is what it takes, even the smallest amount of support can go a long way.
