Stop Internet Censorship, Stop SOPA

UPDATE: SOPA & PIPA have both officially been put on hold! They have not been killed, but they are on an indefinite hold until a consensus can be reached. It looks like we may be safe for the moment, but you can bet they’ll keep trying to push SOPA & PIPA or similar new legislation through. Don’t let your guard down, keep your eyes open and fight any legislation like SOPA & PIPA!

Update: Thanks to the support of YouPorn’s Twitter followers we were able to make “SAVE PORN” the #1 Trending Topic on Twitter during yesterday’s peak SOPA Blackout time! The tweet was shared more than 6,000 times across the world, continues to be shared every few mins, and has hopefully helped to bring awareness about SOPA to those that did not know about it before. Thank you all for your massive outpouring of support not only for YouPorn, but for all those fighting against SOPA and PIPA. Stick together, keep fighting, and we can keep these bills from becoming law. SAVE PORN, STOP SOPA!

save porn stop sopa youporn #1 trending topic on twitter

Update: Blackout Day is officially underway as Thousands of sites across the world have come together in a coordinated effort to put an end to SOPA & PIPA once and for all. Visit SOPAStrike.com for a list of Blackout Day Supporters and more information on the SOPA and PIPA.

Watch the LiveStream of the New York Tech Meetup outside the offices of NY Senators Schumer & Gillibrand online here.

Update: Reddit has put out a fantastic guide to SOPA & PIPA outlining the differences and similarities between the two and what both bills will actually effect. Highly recommend reading this, great source of SOPA/PIPA info. Read it here.

Update: SOPA has officially been stalled in Congress! This doesn’t mean we’ve won, not by a long shot, but it does mean that we don’t have to worry about the passage of SOPA anytime soon. The problem now is the bill’s counterpart, PIPA (aka the Protect IP Act), is now being rammed through the Senate. Keep fighting, Keep speaking out, but now it’s time we changed targets to PIPA!

Reddit will still blackout on January 18th in protest of SOPA & PIPA. Wikipedia has joined the cause and have committed to blacking out for 24 hours on January 18th.

Update: 61 Senators are refusing to meet and speak with their constituents BEFORE the January 24th Vote on SOPA. Don’t let your Senators ignore your concerns to push SOPA through. Reach out to your Senator and demand that they oppose SOPA. See the Full List Here.

SOPA author and all-around ignoramus US Congressman Lamar Smith caught Infringing Copyrights on his OWN WEBSITE. Read more.

Update: How can you expect the passage of fair and just laws when the people passing them are bought and paid for? Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff wrote a column for the Salt Lake City Tribune spewing Pro-SOPA propaganda that, if not provided entirely by the MPAA itself, was taken directly from a number of the MPAAs own public statements. Full story here.

Reddit has committed to blacking out their entire site in protest of SOPA from 8am-8pm on January 18th! Read the story.

Update: The Senate is scheduled to vote on the proposed internet censorship bill (SOPA) this Tuesday, January 24. Fourty-One Senators must still be convinced to vote AGAINST SOPA if we have any hopes of preventing this bill from being passed into law. NDAA was already throttled through the system and passed into law, don’t let the government censor your internet next. Contact your Senators TODAY and demand they vote NO on SOPA this Tuesday, January 24!

Update: A leaked letter from the US Ambassador to Spain sent to Spain’s outgoing President reveals the US Government has threatened Spain with Trade Blacklisting should the country refuse to enact DNS site blocking laws like SOPA. Read the story here.

Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian speaks out against the perils of SOPA in an interview with Bloomberg. Check out the video here.

Update: Google, Amazon, Facebook, eBay, Twitter, PayPal, Wikipedia, AOL and Others are rumored to be discussing a combined “Blackout Day” in protest of SOPA. This is the kinda of support the Anti-SOPA movement needs. One can only hope that the massive disruptions caused by the blackout of these sites garners tons of media attention, rallies more people and organizations to the Anti-SOPA cause, and ultimately forces the US Government into reconsidering their stance on SOPA entirely.

Update: Hollywood Union members are circulating a widespread Petition requesting the MPAA and Hollywood Unions renounce their support for SOPA/PIPA. The petition can be found online here.

Update: Haven’t been able to confirm for sure, but rumor has it tomorrow’s schedule to continue MarkUp of SOPA has been cancelled and will take place in the New Year. Also, Two FireFox Plugins circumventing any DNS based website blocking have already been released. They can try to censor the internet, but there will always be ways around it.

Update: House Judiciary Committee set to continue MarkUp of SOPA on Wednesday, Dec. 21. Petition for Presidential Veto of SOPA if passed receives 25,000 signatures in 2 days. Spread the word about SOPA, the more people that know about it the better chance we have of preventing it’s passage!

Update: SOPA Vote Adjourned Until 2012 – Keep Fighting, We haven’t won yet!

Update: Watch the House Judiciary Committee’s markup of S.O.P.A. live HERE.

A new Bill (Stop Online Piracy Act [SOPA - HR3261]) is making its way through the varying stages of the US Government and could have long standing, globe spanning, detrimental effects on the Internet as we know it. Simply put, the Bill, if passed into law, will put the power of Internet Censorship into the hands of the US Government, the Department of Justice (DOJ), and some of the biggest Entertainment Industry Corporations in North America (ex. RIAA and MPAA).

The US Government plans to achieve it’s goal of Internet Censorship by instituting a DNS blocking system similar too those already in use by such noted pro-censorship governments as Syria, Iran, and China, though it is rumored that the US System could be much worse for the end-user than any of those already in use.

If passed, SOPA will destroy the Internet as we know it, giving various branches of the US Government and countless Entertainment Industry Corporations absolute authority over the contents of the Internet as seen in North America. Not only will the bill hamper if not utterly destroy countless technological innovations, it could spell the end of online competition, and mean the beginning of massive online monopolies run by the biggest corporations in the entertainment industry. Not to mention the fact that any pre-existing site (like YouPorn) could be blocked from all of North America by said Government or Corporations at the drop of a hat, with or without merit.

What it really comes down to is: Are you willing to put absolute control of the Internet into the hands of the US Government and a select few entertainment industry corporations? I know I’m not, YouPorn sure as hell isn’t, the entire PornHub Network isn’t, and the hundreds of thousands of companies and people that have joined the cause? You can bet your ass they don’t.

Corporations are NOT People; Pizza is NOT a Vegetable; the Internet should NOT be Censored. STOP SOPA!

    If this bill passes, it would be the begining of the end of the first amendment of our constution. Therefor, it could destroy all individual privacy in this, the most free nation on earth. Moreover, It would make the United States no better than any ather dictorship.

    • el toro

      if you were free, you wouldn’t have to be told so.

  • Thoughtful

    I believe you’re missing the point of the bill. SOPA deals not with censorship, but (as stated in the name) online piracy. I have friends throughout the entertainment industry (individuals, not corporations) whose income consists of royalties on the sales of their work. When folks don’t buy movies because they’re posted on the internet for free, it’s these individuals that lose. And I’m not talking about big name pop stars – these people are the backstage crew, the scenic designer, the songwriter.

    Or to put it in terms of this area, if you were a porn star, would you really be all that pleased if nobody bought your videos because they could see substantially all of it for free online?

    • Awampler_uai114

      Who gives a shit about the fat cat entertainment industry? They make far, far too much money. If you’re gonna try to make me feel sorry for someone, it won’t be them!

      • Concerned Citizen

        You are vile ugly person. It’s peoples attitudes such as yours that have caused law abiding people to pursue these kind of laws. Talk about being narcissistic, you actually believe that the guy was talking directly to you by making you feel sorry for someone as you say. It all comes down to intent. What do you intend to do? Steal other people work without paying for it? This has nothing to do with how much one makes it comes down to; are you going to steal!

        • Youarethinkingwithyourass

          There are alternatives to fight piracy. Giving the power to some corporations to block any website at anytime with no previous notice and sometimes without proper investigation and due process is not the way to do it.

          • chalas ,

            Lol they already have ICE raiding without due process!!! imagine after this crap bill passes

          • jojo

            What nobody say is that the SOPA will force all Porn-related websites/blogs to have an .XXX extension which will finally result in filtering them easily for child protection software.
            This is gonna be financially destruction for all of them and that’s why they’re fighting against the law. if you thought a single second that they’re worried about your freedom…you’re really dumb..

          • http://blog.youporn.com YouPorn Jude

            I’ve been very closely following the SOPA news and listened to the full House Judiciary Committee MarkUp of the bill as well as it’s proposed amendments all-day yesterday and this is the first time I have heard any mention of the bill having anything what so ever to do with .XXX. It’s possible one of the many, many amendments to the bill has .XXX language in it, but to the best of my knowledge none of the proposed amendments have been approved either.

            Our concern over SOPA is purely based on the fact that we will not support a Government’s right to assign censorship control of the internet to a handful of Governmental departments and the biggest Entertainment Corporations in North America, if not the world. SOPA is nothing more than a Lobbyist backed bill to put more money in the pockets of Entertainment Execs and more power in their hands. Time and time again both sides have proven their ineptitude when it comes to anything technological and they have no right to make decisions of this magnitude when they very clearly have little to no understanding of what they are attempting to pass and it’s ramifications.

          • Discarddiscarddiscard

            Damn right. They can’t tell us what we can and cannot mail either. Wait, they can. . . . ?

          • Discarddiscarddiscard

            @Yoyo
            Right, nobody is say that. We can’t force porn relations to use .XXX to protect us from child porn. But, if we are going to fight against the law, let’s do it fighting against this law. And if I was dumb, I don’t know if I would know how to think a single second, for even for a single second.

            @Thinkslikeanass
            You can only fight piracy with a bigger boat and longer swords. Tee hee, the fucking porn comes down a wire you dolt. The phone and cable companies are the real pirates. I say “Give me more bandwidth, not more plastic disks”.

        And they come from a place far, far away too.

    • good idea, buttt…

      though its a valiant cause, this bill, if passed, could be interpreted and perverted the way all ambiguous legislature is. it would most likely fail to stop piracy, and it could very well be used to circumvent the first amendment.

      • Thoughtful

        Valid point. However, it is my opinion (worth every penny you paid for it) that if this bill is indeed modified or interpreted, it would be along the lines of simply giving a bit of backbone to existing copyright legislation. It would be political suicide to even suggest something that could be spun as trashing the first amendment to the Constitution.

        • Wanker

          So you’re in favor of legislation that halts piracy, that’s fine.

          SOPA however is giving the corporations access to the red button on any website they see as a “rogue operator” without any due process. SOPA is wrong, yes it is censorship and it’s plain fucking evil.

          Not to mention that it won’t actually stop piracy. You can’t stop piracy by taking down websites. New ones pop up, people are a little annoyed and go to a new site, that’s it.

          The only thing that actively reduces piracy is services like netflix and spotify. They make it affordable and it’s easier than pirating. It’s the entertainment industry’s own fault it refuses to evolve.

          Honestly and I am completely serious, if it’s either SOPA or no more entertainment industry, we would be better of without the entertainment industry; artists will keep making art regardless.
          Should we really support industries that are useless? No.

            Great comment, thanks.

        • WTFiswrongwithpeople

          Now hold on a minute. I agree with you 100% that piracy is a bad thing although even during the recent recession when you think companies would lose more money because of piracy most actually made record profits but that’s for another discussion… Copyright Infringement and piracy are civil matters plain and simple. I can not understand how a CIVIL MATTER that should be dealt with in civil courts is getting federal legislation to back it. That makes no fucking sense. Oh wait companies that claim they are losing money due to piracy are putting millions and millions of dollars into trying to pass bills to protect themselves. Why don’t they just use keep that money instead of wasting it on stupid ass legislation that is only going to hurt their market and other companies they deem, as Wanker said, “rouge operators”. SOPA is a bunch of shit and I honestly can not believe after the last senate bill they tried to pass failed they came up with the SOPA bill to bring to the table. Sad and pathetic.

          • Discarddiscarddiscard

            @WTFingwithpeople
            First, copywrites are a government granted protection. Second, to quote Cheech Marin, “recession, repression, it’s all the same thing.”
            Third, a company is a legal entity with all the rights and responsibilities as any other citizen. How they spend their money is their choice. Fourth, by spending their millions of dollars, they are protecting billions of dollars in profits. Fifth, doesn’t it feel great to talk out your ass. Kinda clears your mind, doesn’t it.

    For God’s sake, please hire a copy editor. If you ever want anyone to care about this, you need to be able to communicate why this is important. The above statement does little to accomplish this and it is full of grammatical errors. There have to be literate porn lobbyists, right? Hire them, please. They’ll do more for your cause than anyone, prompted by this site, calling or contacting their Congressional reps. You can couch this issue in freedom of speech or censorship, but frankly it is related to porn and it’s difficult for many regular folk to talk about.

    WELL I HOPE IT PASSES! Tube sites have been killing new productions but basically stealing content from producers that PAID $$ to produce videos.

        • Anonymous

          While I don’t support stealing commercial content and posting it on sites like YP or YT (for non-adult content) this bill could, and would also hurt original, non-infringing user generated content (both adult and otherwise) simply due to the fact that the sites that allow users to post user created content would most definitely be blocked, simply due to the fact that those same sites can be used to post infringing content.

          For example, the vast majority of YT’s content is user created and legal… there are just a few “bad apples” that illegally post copyrighted content. Because of those few, the entire site could get blocked… taking away a very useful website for expressing ones self.

          And for those against this bill because User Generated non-infringing content lowers their profits… well that sucks for you. Create better content, and maybe you could co-exist with user generated content.

        • Charlie

          Just because you use mother fucker and dumb shit in your comment doesn’t mean you will get any where. Porn, (like it or not) is an expression of speech. It is not the government’s place to intervene in what we read, what we watch, what we write or what we believe in. I would rather live in a completely chaotic, violent and insecure world where sex, drugs, gambling, drinking and every other “dirty and inapropriate” practice imaginable is rampant than live in a secure world where we pathetically give up our freedom to make sure no parents are hurt or no singer is deprived of his money.
          Government should be targeting websites like frost wire and other file sharing sites with copyright lawsuits like they did with lime wire instead of trying to censor things, because there is always a way around it.
          “When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” (Declaration of Independence).
          The reason I chose to bring up this quote was to show that the document that led the founding of our nation states that we deserve “a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation” which is the right to feel how we want and to express ourselves however we want.
          It is not the government’s place to censor the Internet because if we were all equal then we as a people would decide what would and would not be censored.

      Actually the issue here is that producers never got “hip” to the newer technology and basically fell behind. Sometimes I wonder how better the music industry would be if they had worked with Napster instead of fight them. What producers have to understand is that “pirates” are more efficient and reach a bigger audience. What producers should do is work with Tube sites (and other independent social media) to come to a solution that works for everyone. Producers have to understand that when you shut down one site, three others pop up. Fighting social media is a losing battle.

        Electronic music is a prime example of the power of working with rather than fighting against these forms of mass distribution. New previously unknown produces emerge by the day one track they produce in their living room is suddenly being listened to on a million computers, none of whom paid for it, albeit lower quality. Then the bigger names pay them to remix their songs, they make money off higher quality versions on sites like beatport and itunes, and they get DJ gigs all over the world. Embrace change people, business models become outdated and need updating all the time. Stop being cavemen trying to force us all to accommodate your inability to adapt. Natural selection says out with the old in with the new.

      where will they get all the traffic to promote their sites? joins will decrease heavily if tube traffic disappears. You are either a dumb troll or a dumb sopa activist – you choose.

    Fun Fact, The Author of the bill and the vast majority of its sponsors have openly admit to not knowing SHIT about how the internet operates. They pretty much admit that this is nothing more than a bill to appease their Big Business Exec Overlords. Anyway, SOPA was shot down and they never even called a vote for it. The next Threat is the Senates own version of Sopa which is the Protect IP act.

  • SOPA
  • Fromtheinternets.

    Oh yeah i forgot to mention, an ORIGINAL song put together by P Diddy, Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, The Game, Mary J Blige , Kim Kardashian, Floyd Mayweather and Jamie Foxx, In support of Sites like Mega Upload and Mega video, ( you know the ones that tend to host this pirated material) was flagged by UMG and taken down, even though they didn’t have ANY right to the song or video. Why? Because they had previously made a Deal with Youtube (before Google’s Acquisition of the site that google now has to honor) that gives them the right to flag ANYTHING as copyright infringement even if they hold No copyright for the material.

    I belive that the laws of any jurisdiction, e.g., city, state, country, are designed to make anything and everything illegal. When ‘they’ want to *stop* you; ‘they’ just pick a crime that sorta fits, and that ‘they’ think they can convict you, or injunct you with.

    In America I think, they just want to keep the ‘vice’ rolling at a low roar. Yet still, if adult entertainment had as big a lobby as the banks do, then porn would be too big to fail. Don’tcha think?

    If this bill passes, you might as well give the government the right to censor the truth about everything in life and let them decide what you should know. in other words, the next thing that will happen is the government will start telling the world bold faced lies about actual events and start distorting history books…Oh wait…They do that already!

    CENSORSHIP IS BULLSHIT? WHY CAN’T WE JUST LEARN THE TRUTH AND FACTS FOR OURSELVES!

    I’ll tell you why. because if we all knew the truth about things like 9/11; among other things, then we wouldn’t vote for those in power and there would be a major over-throw of governments. This is the one and only reason why censorship exists in the first place. So they can control what we perceive as the truth!

    LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN! CENSORSHIP DESTROYS! CENSORSHIP = DESTRUCTION OF CIVILIZATION!

    People of the World, We are anonymous.

    This another way the big government of the USA is trying to control your lives. The government does not have the right to know your business, what you watch online, or to stop you from seeing any content online. This bill and the recent NDAA bill combined are late stages of a modern police state foundation such that George Orwell is spinning in his grave. The media is already biased, television, radio, the presidential debates. Everything is controlled, and the internet is next.

    If you have not yet woken up to the reality of the police state we’ve been warning you about, I hope you realize we are fast running out of time. Once this becomes law, you have no means of obtaining information whatsoever in America. — no more truth, no more internet, no right to be free, nothing.

    If you think about it, if we give them the power to censor the place where we are able to speak the most freely, we will no longer be able to speak.

    An aide to bill sponsor Lamar Smith has said, “This bill does not make it a felony for a person to post a video on YouTube of their children singing to a copyrighted song. The bill specifically targets websites dedicated to illegal or infringing activity. Sites that host user content—like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter—have nothing to be concerned about under this legislation”. Thought this would help ease the debate a little. Dont get me wrong…the idea of the Gov. having that much controll over the web makes me REALLY pissed, but I agree with both sides having concerns.

    I am extremely wet and extremely horny to be able to live a life full of sex. And all of the connections that I am making are so errotic to have some. When I wake up and feel all wet from a wet dream to have a clean up of orgasmic welch. My life begins to take off in to a place full of passion. To keep my life flowing this way.

    I get to use all of the personal growth. To keep myself a original master at having sex. When I use myself a personal order to keep climax as a gift. If I want to see the moment that I get so much sex from I have to see passion. I really love the horny feeling that all of the connections have to magiclly disappear from and to re appear.

    In to a pefect orgasm my feelings are in you. I get ready to magically manipulate a person to have sex with me. If you are interested to molest me get me at mielnik@sheridanc.on.ca now. I have to see that I get to make a contribution to my penis life.

    SOPA will ruin everything, it will do very VERY VERY tiny good, compared to all the HORRIBLE it will cause. SOPA will halt innovation, piss ME off, crowd are jails even more with their bullshit prison sentences for even posting an illegal link, and give the government even more control over are country. If you ask me, America wants itself to fail, why else would they keep passing bills that hinder us? If this bill is pass, i will lose all hope for this “democracy” we live in.

    Did you know the internet gross’s more money from innovations, ideas, and products, than illegal content even causes us too lose each year? That right there has the answer in itself.

So in the land of the free , it appears that speach is about to be curtailed , information restricted and arms can only be borne by those who fit into the governments ideal .

Fight back guys , if America falls to the corporation then the rest of the world will soon follow .

  • Take On Me

    We’re going to see many examples of this sort of thing in the next ten years and the cause is two-fold. For one, we have a very flawed lobby system (which is the easiest way to corrupt a representative society like ours) and we have people who genuinely want to increase the amount of control government has on others they disagree with. I do not believe there is a conspiracy really, aside from the conspiracy to make money (which is hardly a conspiracy, more of a market force). It’s more just a matter of people saying, “Hey. I want government to make this problem go away.” That enters the political machine and becomes legislation, which then gets passed if it sounds politically helpful for politicians wanting to get re-elected. It’s the same reason penalties for marijuana got so out of control. And there will be hundreds of other things like it one day.

    The reason people are mad is partially thanks to the fact that a bad economy is showing people that the role of a government is not how many problems it can fix in a society when they have no idea what they’re doing half the time.

    As for copyright law, it seems legislation is not going to solve this “problem” (if indeed there is a problem that needs some sort of intervention by government). The answer is to make it easier to access data legitimately rather than with more difficulty or expense to the consumer. Ordinarily free markets would handle this sort of thing by filling a need with a new product (like video and music streaming), but we have this nanny state mentality that – whether you agree with it or not – is simply not economically or politically feasible. I’m not gonna do the Ron Paul cheer, because I think more people are thinking about things this way, and I think it’s a change that’s coming with or without him in the white house as we find more congressmen who share his views and realize the popularity and political power of it.

When asked a few years ago at ROFL con, a furry asked Moot the question of a ‘versus’ scenario. “Who would win, the goverment or anonymous?” There wasn’t a concrete answer then, but considering the situation now, we should observe and be aware of how things play out.
