Man i figured i;d see if wikipedia was serious about going theough with a 24 hour blackout on their site to protest "Sopa"

Problem with stuff like this is those pesky lawyer type wordings.I almost understand why they would want to do something like this.

Copyright stuff is a nasty place to get tangled.And yes,someone who produces tangible work,such as music,movies,hell online games,should receieve payement for those things,though prolly not as much as alot of them seem to think they should make.

But this leads to more stuff,which leads to more,a good example of what i mean is Promethuse V Mayo,if you dont know it,take a look.I could be wrong,but from what I think I understand,Promethues has a patent on...I have no clue wtf it is on,so i qoute:

Quote:
The drugs themselves were already known to be useful to treat the disease, but according to Prometheusí patent, their use was in limited because their efficacy was difficult to monitor. The basis of the invention was in discovering the range of doses that would be effective without harming the patient.
I get confused easily sometimes,but this makes my head spin.Its not the drugs,nor the drugs uses that the patent is about.It's about something.....something above my head i guess.But from every article I have seen on this,and been quite a few,cuz i like puzzles,its basically saying,you can not form the corralation between "this" and "that" in your head,because we have a patent on it.

Just think,if SOPA is inacted,restricting internet,and can be sued for putting 2 plus 2 together in your head----meh I got work to do on a tin-foil hat

it's cool that wikipedia did their protest blackout, and google had a special protest logo. This sopa thing is bad news, and it's good that they're getting the word out.

Aye,can understand why google didnt do a complete black out,but man would that have made a statement.

But Wikipedia's 24 hour blackout was enough,i am always looking things up,and cussed a few times when wiki was first 2-3 lionks in whatever i was going for.Which is what prompted me to make the thread,blackouts over,but I wonder if the idea worked.

BTW Wired (magaizine available online),and even Craigslist participated in their own ways.I do hope the black outs associtaion with "hackers" doesnt become a focal point of the SOPA supporters.

Tokyo Toshokan
An Big Site Hosting Anime Stuff has also been Off Yesterday

I know that it has several thousands of users checking on it each hour
So I guess its a nice Impact especially as its most Users come from the USA



In any case this is quite Dangerous
nowdays many Companys are calculating losses and wins of illegal distribution of their Software and Stuff
often deciding that the advertising effect of Illegal distribution far outlines the possible losses

Many Media Companys could not survive at all without the Users Spreading the Game around and those increasing Users Community and Advertising for possible buyers



But US Departments are quite known to be stubborn
they will see this trough no matter what
I bet on that



Guess I am happy to be in Germany
we are banned from most US Servers and Providers from the start as Germany has Outlawed most of the Big Bother stuff from the start......
