It is ridiculous to me in this day and age that SOPA and PIPA has gotten as far as it has.
If SOPA and/or PIPA pass as is, censorship would occur. It will slow down development and inovations that our economy needs to grow and survive. The timing is also very bad.
Those who support it say things that sound good. Let’s stop piracy. That is good. If something is done illegally then it should be dealt with. The problem is that SOPA will cause innocent sites to be shut down for doing nothing wrong. It really will not even do what it is intended to do. The real bad guys can get around it.
It seems to me that it will also allow companies to have their competition easily caught up in issues that could lead to their demise when they had not done anything wrong. Piracy needs to be addressed. Laws that are already in place needs to be enforced.
If SOPA had been inacted a decade ago, the web would be very different today. It would suck. If you support SOPA, you do not understand what it can do to site owners that have done nothing wrong.
2012 is here! 2012 will be the most important year for social media ever in history. With the evolution of many sites such as Facebook and the upcoming changes to Twitter and other sites. We do not only visit these sites, they have become part of our daily lives. While some do this for fun, more and more are doing it to increase business and truly interact with their friends and family. Applications like Spotify are making even the music industry a part of the social media industry. We have not seen anything yet. Social media is here to stay. You cannot beat it. So join it.
