Tech Companies Keep Fighting SOPA

With the new legislation’s due date approaching, tech companies keep struggling to fight against the bill called SOPA by emphasizing the importance of the web to the US economy.


Media reports show that last week a number of tech companies, including the Consumer Electronics Association and the Computer and Communications Industry Association, penned a letter to a Texas Congressman who introduced the law, a House’s Chairman, and Michigan Congressman, a House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member.

Considering the coming elections and an unemployment rate, which is up to 9 per cent for a while now, the hot topic o the issue is, of course, jobs. So, that’s why the companies’ letter emphasizes exactly how the web assists the governments with creating jobs and therefore contributes to the US GDP. The group pointed at a recent study conducted by McKinsey, which estimated the importance of the web to the economy. The study in question revealed that the web actually contributes to 3.4% of GDP in thirteen developed countries, which had caused around 20% of economic growth there in the past 5 years.

Considering all this, the group of tech companies has penned a letter to ask that Congress proceed deliberately with this bill aimed at the piracy of copyrighted content online. Meanwhile, the firms all agree with the need to address this issue, because if creators of new goods and services find out that their works are stolen, that undoubtedly hurts the country’s economy. In addition, the companies also agreed that changes are necessary in order to overcome the economic crisis. However, the group gently advised the Congress to think twice before passing any bill.

Nevertheless, during the last hearings, the House Judiciary Committee questioned the companies’ commitment to the very cause (that of fighting piracy), and left too little room for discussing the problems that may arise with approval of new anti-piracy legislation. At the same time, a lot of industry experts have already voiced their concerns over the consequences of the law. Now, according to the media reports, if the written letter doesn’t achieve its goal, the plans of the House Oversight Chairman, Darell Issa (R-Calif.), are to introduce some alternative piracy legislation this week.

foschnauzer avatarThanks to everyone fighting against SOPA, These American Jenks have got me Spewin', they are only doing it to make any moolah they can get, if a new recording artist is interested in being seen/ heard they sometimes start out by distributing their content on p2p websites to get their name out there. IF this bill gets passed its just another bunch of lost jobs in America, this better not happen where I live, being Canada which is just north of USA... Thanks for postin' this SaM!

No avatarIf SOPA goes ahead, it will crucify the Internet both within and outside of the USA. Risks of IP takedowns will mean all non-American DNS servers will firewall the USA to maintain DNS server integrity. The Internet would shut down for 3 -4 days while ALL American IP addresses are removed from Non-USA DNS servers. All non-USA traffic would be diverted from the USA, making the Internet worldwide cripplingly slow as USA server capacity is lost and major trunk routes crossing the USA circumvented. The cost of replacing all of this DNS server capacity and of developing new trunk routes would be charged against what (very limited!) traffic to/from the USA is 'allowed'. The USA will have no control over whether the rest of the world even allows the USA to access or be accessed from the WWW. The additional charges on US users might amount to a 15 or 20 fold increase in American ISP costs, which will be passed directly onto USA broadband users. The thousands of USA companies that have laboriously built up Internet supply chains might be decimated with no or very little internet access. There will be tens of thousands of take-down requests even upon big companies and no guarantee whatsoever that even big companies could get an early defense hearing. All free USA sites will vanish overnight, as will the USA Internet Cloud. Competition will cease to exist on the Internet as all competing companies will issue takedown requests against their competitors. All smaller companies will not dare host a website for fear of takedown litigation. Defense legal costs against take-down will be hugely and massively expensive. SOPA will destroy the Internet as we know it, and even if big companies get back online after takedowns within 24 hours (or up to 64 hours offline over a weekend) lost business for them will run into millions of dollars! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

No avatarForgot to add all technological innovation (especially in regard to web technology) within the USA will cease as soon as SOPA gets a foot in the door . . .
