I don’t make a habit of going political. It always seams to break down to a bunch of screaming and then someone gets called “Worse than Hitler!
But enough about my ex-wife (Ba du du dump…Cthsssh) Thank you thank you I’ll be here all night.
I drew this FAITHFULLY REPRODUCED AND IN NO WAY EXAGGERATED image of a scumbag political lobbyist while reading about SOPA or the “Stop Online Piracy Act.” It was hard to do as my hands were shaking with a murderous rage that only the blood of the innocent could satisfy. See look at him. Busy buying politicians left and right. That’s what they do apparently.
I realize I’m late to the party on these protests, but since the asshats behind them aren’t going to stop, better late then never…. right?
Look, sure Piracy is a problem. If you create a product you should be able to reap the rewards of your efforts and not have it stolen, copied, or whatever. I’ve already had to fight a few people who took my designs and tried to pass them off as their own. It happens. But under this law my whole site could be shut down, because I had a single piece of content on it that someone found objectionable. Whether it was or not. And realistically I wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
I am not smart enough to figure out a solution to the piracy problem, but I’m fairly certain laws like SOPA and PIPA are the wrong way of doing it.
