100 thoughts to “WTF is SOPA ? aka The American Government trying to ruin the internet”

  1. You idiots! You are violating the constitution and it's amendments and it's true only blame the USER not the website

  2. We all use Youtube, Facebook and other sites everyday if their block then what would happened to Let Players like Chuggaconroy or Let Plays they became popular because of  viewers watching their let plays, unless they can make a TV series, then there no way you can watch them

    Now the reason why I care is because everyone including me make fanart/music Videos/and Fanfiction plus. I dreamed when I was young I can make my own cartoon show and I'm not gonna let this (excuse my language) Crap stopping me from sharing what I've been working on for years.

    And the part that  because of copyrights, that crap!  its like a classroom, if two kids are being to loud or not listening, The teacher has no right too punish everyone because of two kids not listening.

    And Like I said I'm not the only one, If this happens EVERY Video on Youtube,  EVERY Story on Fanfiction  EVERY picture of Deviant art  and your favorite talking sites like Facebook and Twitter will be block for good

    I may not entirely know what this SOPA is but I can tell this is bad news, and I want to know how to stop it! 

  3. wait is this a fucking joke? us citizens basically live off of the internet do they know how much it will affect society? no matter what if this pulls through it wont end well

  4. SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Acts. They plan to take away all of our fanfiction and fan arts. Anything fan related is most likely going to be destroyed. Sites like fanfictionnet, tumblr, youtube, and many more will be affected by this. In other words, this act is a giant 'f*ck you' from the US government. If you are able to, then please, I beg that you sign the petition against this stupid atrocity. Our deadline is March 19 and we still need over 20,000 signatures.

  5. Get congress to vote on SOPA http://wh.gov/lVt0s wether or not it passes will inform you of your congress men's / congress woman's real intent  for the country

  6. I used to pirate all my games, then I duscovered steam, and 2 years later, i own 50 games in my library, i am an open minded person, and i agree that people who pirate games can be converted to buyers with the right service.

  7. SOPA is gone, in no small part to the 3.5 million of us who've watched this video, and of course Total Biscuit, whose voice we've all supported.
    Thanks TB and viewers, keep making your voices heard; TB, thank you for giving all of us whose voices can be ignored by our politician someone respectable to stand behind, and boost our opinions.
    I know I'll show support every opinion of yours, as long as I agree with you; which as of right now is the majority of the time.

  8. These $%#&in bastards are back… JUST BECAUSE UR PARENTS DIDN'T LOVE YOU DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO RUIN STUFF FOR OTHERS. GTFO EARTH ALREADY.

  9.    Can you look into the Net Neutrality debate that's going on in America. (Extra Credits posted a video about it) It's very threatening to all sites, streams, & downloads on the web and may have just as big an effect as SOPA/CISPA would've.
       I don't know much about this, but you're videos on these subjects helped to inform so many people before. PLEASE HELP to prevent this again.

  10. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE TPP
    IT'S NOT ONLY HARMFUL TO THE INTERNET, IT'S HARMFUL TO GOVERNMENTS AND IS UNDERGROUND ATM.

  11. I'm really scared about SOPA because they sent me a message saying I'm getting sued and I didn't try to download anything all I do is go on youtube and I'm only 12 🙁 I'm scared

  12. So Fanfiction.net various anime sites and social media sites will be blocked… Well then America will have a Civil War this is something as sensitive as the slave related issues that started the first.

  13. These people are too "intellectually limited" to comprehend how many people make a living off of the Internet.

  14. You people do realize that this issue and this video IS ALMOST THREE YEARS OLD. It's not even REMOTELY TOPICAL ANYMORE.

  15. american government officials are just trying to get re-elected and will do anything and and I mean ANYTHING to push their own agendas despite what they say they will do to get elected.  This includes doing exactly what the politicians said they wouldn't do including repealing rights in sneaky and devious ways.

  16. And they say that no one owns the internet, it's property of the people..
    The US government controls everything, including the media. Internet is the one thing they can't control, and look what they're doing to it.

  18. Net neutrality is GONE. Please TB make a video about it and raise the awarness, its 1000x worse than SOPA

  19. For the record, they weren't trying to destroy the internet. They were trying to stop piracy. Destroying the internet was just an unfortunate side-effect. 😛

  20. I know I'm late but, EA would also be screwed by this. You know how many Madden vids and other vids of their games are up?

  21. SOPA would of been good if it only shut down websites that host the Copyright Material, not YouTube, soundcloud or any other streaming sercive, no, any Website that allows you to torrent movies, tv shows such and so on, like The Pirate Bay.

  22. "Most of the people debating this bill don't even know what's in it."

    Yep, that sounds like our government.

  23. dear the corporate computer or agent that is working from i believe Comcast that i am paying for this internet service. Please stop slowing my connection down to this video so i cannot watch it for it doesn't pay your pay check standard whatever that means.If you don't i will post this comment to show the inter net that net neutrality is real and is has a legitimate of a threat has SOPA which you tried to pass.

  24. The SOPA legislation actually contradicts itself because it hasn't been worded properly. It says 'An internet site is dedicated to theft of U.S. property if… it enables, or facilitates a violation of…', and then it goes on to list some of the violations. By definition, a website cannot only 'facilitate' copyright theft if it is 'dedicated' to it, this is a contradiction in terms. To facilitate something is to lend a helping hand to process that is already under way, to be dedicated to something is to be wholly given over to particular purpose

  25. Note to any non-Americans/the clueless/those who dont care: the Federal Government, as of the posting of this comment, only cares about control over its citizens' lives and about their own personal gain at ohers' expense. Not every individual in the Federal Government is like this, but it has been the culture within it since Obama took office; earlier if you count the life-long Senators.

  26. SOPA is more than a nuclear strike on the internet its more like say 15 Tsar bombas on the internet this could effectively destroy the internet I mean it has the POTENTIAL to destroy the entire internet not saying it will but It could which is very bad and scary and dear god we need to do something about this

  27. I cant't even believe its getting to this point. Like TB said, why are we letting a ton of 70 year-olds dictate aspects of modern society that they are completely alien to them?! Not just piracy, but all that stupid video game violence nonsense!

  28. My dick –> 8========D  o  <– Lamar Smith's mouth
                                              o  <– John Riccitello's mouth
                                              o  <– Patrick Leahy's mouth

  29. Im thinkin that if they pass sopa or pipa its gonna probably lead to either the destruction of the us internet economy or another american revolution or be othe countries doing similar things or a pretty big war wich would also be quite likely if other countries followed the u.s example.

  30. when did this happen ?http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/10979918/Illegal-downloading-four-strikes-and-then…-nothing.html or this one http://news.yahoo.com/net-providers-begin-warning-illegal-downloads-231923384–finance.html

  31. You can not separate corporate interests from the American system, that is all that it has ever been. All IP addresses may originate at the US department of "defence" but the technology to redo the internet again many times over already exists in every country that the US controls now. Those nation's politicians may to be owned be the US but the public is becoming wiser to the system, that is the real issue the US want's censored.

  32. Not only do EA make shitty sports games and fuck every FIFA player over with their continuous bullshit but now they support this shit! EA sucks ass!

  33. Good to see you using your platform responsibly to keep people informed about this who might otherwise never know about it. And get better soon!

  34. The reason the gov wants this to do this for there secrets to remain secrets. internet has allowed exposure of a lot of bad things gov has done shit i would never have known without internet. plus too many old idiots running the govs. and dumb companies who can't adapt to the future

  35. It's encouraging to me to see how people rallied up against this monstrosity of a bill, and proved how when people stop bickering over insignificant shit, they can make a difference and stop the bullshit that people in power try to pull.
