    Couldn't find a thread for the livestream, so I made my own.

    http://keepthewebopen.com/sopa

    A bit of info for anyone joining in late.

    Maybe it's because I just read the beginning of the thread, but, some of you need to learn how shit works

    They were voting on amendments to the bill, changes that would make it less (although still) facist and awful.

    People you want to support, who have been fighting for YOUR rights all day:
    Zoe Lofgren - D-CA
    Darrell Issa - R-CA
    Jared "The internet is for porn." Polis - D-CO
    Jason Chaffetz - R-UT
    Ron Wyden - D-OR

    They've seriously been doing excellent jobs. Like them on Facebook and Twitter, your support will really help them, because they've been putting up with massive idiots the entire day.

    And don't freak out yet, SOPA must still pass Senate and Obama. Although that is a bit worrying, Obama especially, considering they just passed NDAA.

    And if SOPA does fail, all of you, remember PIPA is still floating around, which is pretty much SOPA-lite.

    Also here's a list of some top level corrupt cunts

    Donations to SOPA Co-Sponsors from the movie industry-
    Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., $1,727,156.
    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., $516,400
    Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., $488,731
    Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-Calif., $488,636
    Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Tex., $392,995 (sponsor)
    Rep. Robert Goodlatte, R-VA, $316,686
    Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., $261,700
    Rep. Lee Terry, R-Nev., $248,168
    Rep. John Barrow, D-GA, $210,900
    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., $204,199

    Berman especially, comparing shit to nuclear weapons.

    Also, Steve King is a fucking moron too.



    And Mel Watt.

    It was the vote for the 4th amendment. Not the entire bill.

    Edited:

    The first paragraph.

    This better not pass. I highly doubt this bill will.

    But in a couple of months, they will change the wording and it will go through. It always happens like that.

    The next amendment is about whether they should consider an IP-address and domain name as the same thing.

    WHAT THE FUCK?

    I'm pretty sure the amendment they just voted on would have been a good thing(err, that's worded wrong. Nothing about any of this is good), but only 4 people voted yes. It was about not targeting IP addresses, only domain names. But some guy said that some evil foreign infringing sites can only be accessed by their IP, and everyone voted no.

    At least they know what an IP is, when a similar law was passed in the UK the person who had written it thought IP stood for intellectual property (in that context).

    I only have an empty gatorade bottle on my left and a plate with an empty pop-tart wrapper on my right.

    Even in the (unlikely) event this passes, it won't affect Europe or anything outside of the US, right?

    If so, I have some room in my backyard, a couple of spare tents and a decent wi-fi connection if you want to pass by from some free Internets.

    The thing is that if the US government gets through with this, the government of other countries might try their luck at it too.

    What were you expecting? The bill doesn't pass today. That's not for a while. Today is markup day, where they go in and change things. It'll go past a review by the Supreme Court for infringements on the Constitution/BoR, and then go back for changes. After that, it's house, senate, and finally presidential veto.

    I'm sure I missed something, but that's the gist of it.

    Today isn't voting. Today is editing.
