What’s your opinion on the SOPA?
I was just having a friendly debate about this with some of my friends on Facebook. I realize so many don’t know what it means so I am opening up the subject to a friendly debate. Keep it nice as we all have our rights to our opinion. I believe the law is too strict and may not protect websites and blogs best interests. If internet censorship happens this and all websites can be shut down if one copyrighted post gets posted whether the site owner posted it or if it was a members post. In order to protect myself and my website I would have to monitor and approve every post before it was posted to the public. I do not want to have to censor my regular veteran posters of this site nor do I wish to police every post that comes thru. If we had to police every post that came thru there would be no time to locate deals or shop. I understand awareness needs to be made. If this law was passed today thousand of brand new blogs would be shut within minutes. There are thousands of brand new bloggers that have no idea what the laws are surrounding copyright infringement. Although I agree awareness needs to be made I don’t think a newbie that made a mistake should go to jail for 5 years and I certainly don’t think blog and forum owners should be shut down for one unauthorized post made by a member that wasn’t picked up in moderation. I don’t think this new law will help the right people. I believe people will be hurt by this and this is why I have decided to sign the campaign against SOPA. I believe instead of throwing people in jail why not educate them instead. Laws are great but this goes too far. I would love to hear your opinions on this. Please share your thoughts and questions and remember this is a friendly debate .
