Document Sharing Company Against SOPA

Scribd, the largest company engaged into document sharing, is joining the protests against the new US anti-piracy bills SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act). They did it by pulling out some of the documents published on their site.

If you don’t know what Scribd is, it is simple to explain – that is the service that allows its users to post documents. Because of the ambiguity of both acts, the firm is afraid that its existence might be threatened if these proposals are passed as laws. Despite the fact that supporters of these strict measures claim that their main target are foreign services facilitating copyright violation, and free speech can’t be tempered with, the bills contain provisions that might allow the Department of Justice to obtain court orders to shut down “notorious” websites.

That’s why those bills worry Scribd and other similar online services. Co-founder of Scribd explained that Congress keeps pushing through the law threatening the future of the web. Indeed, the industry observers are sure that with this legislation passed, domains like Scribd could simply vanish from the Internet. This is the reason for the sites to show their users just what these bills could do to Scribd and other websites. They claim that such bills are a direct attack on the underpinnings of the Internet. As a result, Scribd’s users saw the words fading away just before a pop-up appeared explaining the disappearing act.

Media reports showed that the number of people opposing the anti-piracy act is currently growing, joining not just the Internet community, but also recording musicians who made their career thanks to the file-sharing. For example, Leah Kaufmann, the songwriter of the “Obama Girl” videos, has written an anti-SOPA theme song called “Firewall”.

trialNerror avatarAlways love reading of new large names joining the Anti-SOPA team.

CAUTION: Rambling and ranting about to commence...

Okay, so the first form of internet was ARPANET (also DARPANET since it was funded by the US DoD) which was used 50 years ago to easily and conveniently ACCESS AND SHARE INFORMATION. 30 years later it was decided the public could use such a technology to send letters instantly and look up posted statistical research and documentation... Do the governments really think us people are so retarded that we wouldn't be able figure out ways to "enhance" the internet experience with more content and media? They must think something along those lines and expected us to be completely satisfied with email and online libraries. BORING. It's their own freakin fault for giving us the power of networking. A beautiful thing it is and I think you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing all that there is to be shared.

Like the last paragraph of the article states, musical artists NEED to have their music shared online or nobody would get to know of them. I watched an online video about how to take over the music industry as a singer/band and one of the key requirements was SHARING your music via MySpace, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, WordPress, whatever it may be. Musicians these days NEED to give out their music for FREE around the world to become noticed. This doesn't just stop at musical arts, either. It applies to ALL form of arts including written, drawn/painted, and film. Customers are more satisfied when they know what they are putting their hard earned money into. Buying something blindly often ends up with p/o'd people and nobody likes a bunch of p/o'd people.

End ramble.
