STOP SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) GET INVOLVED!!

January 14, 2012 in NEWS

SOPAMany of you may have already heard of SOPA yet there are millions of you that haven’t, and those that haven’t taken action. The time for taking action is NOW!!!!! Before you think CODBUNKER has gone “rogue” with Politics (we typically maintain anti-political stance and stick to CALL OF DUTY only) watch the video and read this and SHARE it with you friends. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, since it is very strong in the USA’s Legislature and stands a GOOD chance of passage, due in part to Hollywood & the entertainments Lobbying and backing.

What is SOPA?
In a nutshell, the idea SEEMS to be legitimate and worthy, as the main theme is to enable governments to block sites (mainly offshore) that do file sharing of copyrighted material (MP3 sharing, Movie Peer to Peer type sites) which is understandable and “noble” if you will.

HOWEVER, as governments typically go, they ALWAYS go beyond the reach of the initial cause, due to “legaleaze” and has a very REAL potential to shut down most of our Social Media sites (Twitter, FB, Youtube etc…) by holding them accountable for you and I posting something that MAY be construed as “illegal” such as singing a song on Youtube, or having music in the background, or a video clip that the “Big Corporations” deem they have ALL rights to (which could be used to circumvent the “Fair use Act”) The wording in the Bill before our Congress (USA) is vague enough to enable Government censorship of the ENTIRE internet. I don not NEED to tell you what a “GAME CHANGER” for freedom of expression and the death of the internet this would be.

CODBUNKER is based in Virginia, USA and we are personally going to contact the Representatives from this area (Senators: Jim Webb & Mark Warner, and Congressman Randy Forbes, and EVEN President Barrack Obama.) We suggest you do the same as this is a vital election year and you need to let your Rep’s know that YOU will hold them accountable come election time!!!! I use an APP on my Android Phone called “Congress” search it in the “Market” and I’m sure iPhones & iPads have the same type of APP. Also you can find your Rep’s here: CONTACT United States Government Officials.

As far as other countries (non USA) you should get ahead of this and make sure nothing like this is in the works, because if the USA has a bill for it, especially if it passes, then there it will surely be coming your way as well!!!

STOP THE SOPA NONSENSE, GET INVOLVED NOW. (more notes below video)

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Many MAJOR internet sites that have opposed this bill are: Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Amazon, AOL, Reddit, Mozilla, LinkedIn, IAC, Ebay, Paypal, WordPress and Wikimedia to name a FEW. And many of these sites are considering or committed to an INTERNET BLACKOUT on January 18, 2012 (Next Wednesday)!!!

  1. Very glad that CODBUNKER is taking this serious. I’ve wrote my Congressman couple weeks back. And I see he isn’t on the list to Support this, which I’m glad. Everyone should be writing their congressman or congresswoman on this. This is a violation of our freedoms for which our forefathers stood upon. It’s a big deal and don’t think it isn’t.

  2. Agreed
