Forum Post: SOPA/PIPA is getting exported

Even though it had been put aside indefinably there is a bigger question. Should we do something about the export of the SOPA/PIPA act or do nothing about it?

If they say it works in other countries what would stop them from ratifying it?

Can we get a set of attorneys to demonstrate the way in which the bill[s] can be used to stifle free speech?

IF we can show how that may happen, perhaps we can get pressure to eliminate the weaknesses while protecting the rights of copyright holders.

and welcome back.

How about Pro-Bono lawyers?

well yeah - I was thinking that they might undertake the project as a matter of civic duty - especially since much of the problems with the US stems directly from legalese . . .

Cool..So I'm guessing you have a TV....Don't miss "The Nostradamus Effect" on the History Channel.

It's all about the scary scary and very fucking real future on "THE HISTORY CHANNEL"

Or go to The Learning Channel and learn what it's like to be a midget or to be incredibly irresponsible in regard to your reproductive activities...Have 8 or 19 kids..What the Hell It's all good..

I can't wait till they have the bestiality show on...I'm sure that's next..
