Another Government Site Down – Onguardonline.gov

SOPA/PIPA: “Fairness Doctrine” Tyranny Coming In The Back Door

SOPA/PIPA is another case of government control over what We the People will be allowed to see or hear on the internet. The “Fairness Doctrine” was thwarted by We the People through the outrage expressed to our elected members of Congress, ironically over the internet for the most part, so they have seemingly decided to […]

SOPA wasn't the problem

Earlier this week, several popular web sites either blacked themselves out or displayed messages to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).  Apparently Congress got the message and the bill isn’t going to pass – which is a good thing.  But in the end, it’s not going to mean much because SOPA isn’t really the problem […]

SOPA Could Make Sites Like This a Thing of the Past

Without judicial review, the government can seize the domain name of a site such as CDN if they think (wrong or right) that some intellectual property could be at-risk. Since news sites quote […]

Hey, let's just blindly trust that Obama will do the right thing

What happened to our healthy distrust of government?

SOPA /PIPA – What They Are and Consequences

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA or HR 3261), and its sister bill in the Senate, the Protect IP Act (PIPA or S 968), attempt to deal with online sites that traffic in illegally copied content (piracy), but at cost of remaking the architecture of the Internet itself.

The proposed “Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011″, or “PROTECT IP Act” (further shortened to “PIPA”), is about to be brought before the Senate for a vote.
