SOPA and PIPA Support Decreased

SOPA and PIPA Support Decreased

Last week supporters of the new US copyright legislations SOPA and PIPA began to worry, as the chairman of the Oversight committee in the House of Representatives claimed that unless there was consensus on the legislation, nobody would support the anti-piracy bills.


Although the Oversight committee in the House of Representatives remains concerned about Senate action on the PIPA legislation, it is still confident that flawed legislation won’t be taken up by the House. Instead, they will keep working to tackle outstanding concerns and to build consensus before any copyright law comes before the House for a vote.

So, the White House publicly expressed its concerns about some of the bills’ provisions, thus giving a fatal blow to supporters of the anti-piracy laws, among whom 6 movie studios and 4 record labels hoping that the American Justice Department would receive the authority to block access to foreign sites facilitating piracy in case the bills were to pass. Moreover, the government is supposed to be able to force intermediaries like credit card companies, Internet advertisers, and broadband providers to cut off their support to such “notorious” services.

Meanwhile, the strong campaigns against both SOPA and PIPA bills have convinced lawmakers to drop DNS provisions. A vote on PIPA is scheduled to be held by the Senate on January 24. Indeed, once petitions to stop the laws began wondering online, senators announced that they would remove the DNS provisions from the suggested legislation. After this the support for SOPA and PIPA kept growing weaker as 6 Republican senators asked Majority Leader to postpone the vote on the bills.

In spite of the fact that the White House disapproves with both proposed laws, it said that Internet piracy became a real problem harming the US economy and threatening jobs for a serious number of middle class workers. In addition, it hurts America’s most creative and innovative firms and entrepreneurs, i.e. literally everyone – from struggling musicians to production crews and from the start-up social media companies to major film studios. Meanwhile, the existing instruments aren’t strong enough to tackle the worst Internet pirates. As a result, the White House is calling both supporters and opponents to the bills to suggest a viable solution to address copyright violation and protect the web and free speech.

DEMONLORD avatardeath to sopa and others alike it, and its not piracy that looses the majority of the jobs, its because they keep sending them over seas. piracy keeps down the prices so its not like 40 dollars a movie

Bigdad47 avatarA step in the right direction, but hopes of this being completely killed are still high, everyone make your opinion
heard. The fact that the gov. and entertainment industry keep pushing this crap to protect their money and interests
while on the other hand no measures are taken to protect other industries and jobs infuriates me, (auto, manufacturing,
textile, etc.,etc.). I haven't seen any huge, sweeping, invasive, and dangerous laws being proposed to protect jobs and
interests of any other industry in this country. The fact that the entertainment industry spends huge amounts of funds
to elect and support politicians is well known but hardly ever discussed, especially by the media corporations. Our
internet freedom shouldn't be taken away to please one particular group. If this is allowed to happen we will see due
proccess of law fly out the window.

apdunshiz avatarI'm going to agree with demonlord on this. Just like how pot is illegal, they want to make everything else illegal so the government can spend more money on stupid shit we don't need (like jobs over seas).

apdunshiz avatarAnd one other thing, look at all the people out there that "entertain" humanity. Musicians, actors, etc... all have a shit load of money. Who needs 15 cars, and a 4 million dollar house?

trialNerror avatarThe title of the article frightened me. I was worried that some of these big names against SOPA/PIPA had faded away. Legislation support decreasing is a good thing! And as others have stated, file sharing is not a cause for a weakened economy. I think the cause of that was going to war for 7 years, keeping troops over seas to this day, completely depleting our national reserves, and "borrowing" billions of dollars from other countries... Definitely not from sharing files around the globe. Idiots.

No avatarThere were over 10 Million Americans whom contacted their Representatives from Congress, both House and Senate. Thus support has far dwindled among US elected officials. There is insurmountable evidence that "We The People" can have an effect on the decisions of our government if we tighten the screws and apply pressure to them. Fear settles inside these officials and soon no matter how many millions of dollars in lobbying costs are spent by firms such as the RIAA/MPAA the voices of millions of pissed off Americans will overcome and challenge attacks on the Constitution and shut down any threats to the stability and creative freedoms of the internet.

razor1shrp avatar"WOW" This seems so much more important then ever rising price of gas for my Hog and it's much more important then feeding the homeless guy down the road who keep's asking me for some spare change. Anybody who works pay's tax's and the money we pay is used to fight this bullshit war or pirating. How many millions has the governments poured into the war on drugs ?? and have they all gone away ?? Factoring the gross amounts of $$ the company's spend on this big ticket flicks and the huge return they get ,don't they have other shit to worry about??. One of my bro's is a drummer in a band here in Toronto ANVIL and although the downloading does chip into his profits ( and i can tell you first hand they don't make shit off of c-d's ) He told me that the exposure that the internet has given his band is incredible and the venue's are getting bigger and so are the tour's. 3 years ago they played all the heavy metal clubs here in Toronto and a year later they are the opening act for AC-DC . That's how much damage the internet is doing to them and i am almost positive the movie company's are not hurting just look at the salary of these high profile actors . Do you hear Nicolas Cage or George Clooney crying about the 3-4-5-6 million they just dropped into their bank ?? from one movie ?. I say support your local pirate.!! Many of us have been stung with shitty movies that promised to be blockbuster's . I own a dozen Blu Ray movies at $ 35-60.00 dollars each that i don't watch any more then once because they sucked, but thanks to great sites like this one i can watch the movie first and if it meet's my expectations then i'll go SUPPORT the movie company's and purchase it retail.

sinistertoo avatarThe reason why these politicians are passing these law is because their pockets are almost empty. Lobbyists and company supporters for their campaigns are giving money for their own sakes. We already been hurt by gas prices, food, clothing and shelter and now they are taking this "happiness" from us because these politicians are loosing their share, might as well close the internet for good! We made it before and we can still go forward without it. But, we are in a technology world, everything in this world runs in technology and internet is just part of it. If they pass this law/s, it will be the end of civilized world.

brett131981 avatarwell as i am a big supporter of sites like extratorrent, i am a realist and know that it will eventually come to an end. we WILL eventually lose access to things like this, i just hope the politicians get their crap straight and dont screw up the internet and freedom of speech and other vital "legal" aspects of the internet in the process. i in no way support SOPA/PIPA and truly hope the battle will continue for a very long time before they finally figure out how to put an end to it. Thank you Extra Torrent for fighting the good fight

Shaggynyc avatar#12 razor makes great points. the economies around the world are only getting tougher as costs rise and people's incomes stay the same or go lower. $$ for entertainment is very tight when the basic costs for necessities are high. this legislation needs to be shot down, and i'm hoping extratorrent is around for a long time.
