#MPAA chief Chris Dodd stunned by #SOPA defeat, hit with White House petition over comments | VentureBeat - http://venturebeat.com/2012/01/24/mpaa-chief-chris-dodd-stunn...
"Things may get worse for Dodd before they get better. He appeared on Fox News after the defeat of SOPA and PIPA, where he said that, “Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake.” In response, a petition went up at We The People, demanding the White House investigate. “This is an open admission of bribery and a threat designed to provoke a specific policy goal,” read the petition. “This is a brazen flouting of the “above the law” status people of Dodd’s position and wealth enjoy.” The petition quickly collected the 25,000 signatures it needed, which means the White House will have to respond, either through the President or someone in his administration." ‎· silpol

"Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA. The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late." ‎· silpol

@earlyadopter я точно знаю что мой финский почтовый код вполне сьедается всеми зип-чекерами, т.е. я живу в каком-то городишке Масачуссетса... ‎· silpol

ну тем кто совсем честно хочет - можно писать в ГосДеп США , они по сути дела министерство иностранных дел, потому если получат шквал фидбэка, должны будут доложить. в теории, по крайней мере. можно еще вежливо прийти в посольство США (не консульство а именно посольство) и публично, при масс-медиа попросить посла. если выстроится очередь просящих, можно заснять и выложить на youtube... в общем, если хотеть, то можно все, что в рамках цивилизованных способов. ‎· silpol

"Today, the Wikipedia community announced its decision to black out the English-language Wikipedia for 24 hours, worldwide, beginning at 05:00 UTC on Wednesday, January 18 (you can read the statement from the Wikimedia Foundation here). The blackout is a protest against proposed legislation in the United States—the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate—that, if passed, would seriously damage the free and open Internet, including Wikipedia." ‎· silpol

Why SOPA-Supporting News Networks Don’t Mention #SOPA At All - http://falkvinge.net/2012/01/11/why-sopa-supporting-news-netw...
"A study by MediaMatters confirmed the gut feeling we all had: there is indeed a mainstream media blackout going on over the SOPA law that would censor the Internet in the United States. It’s not just a gut feeling, it’s happening." ‎· silpol
"It is relevant because the rates of functional illiteracy are higher than you would expect in the industrialized parts of the world. Much higher, in fact. Approaching 50%. ... This means that roughly half the US population don’t just get all their news from TV, but that they are also incapable of seeking other news sources such as newspapers or the net. This puts television news broadcasts in a particularly privileged position, becoming the well of truth." ‎· silpol
"Therefore, it is in the economic and political interest of today’s newswells to kill a strategic threat to their privileged position, and to act just like Berlusconi did in Italy: to actively not bring the topic up onto people’s radar. In other words, Corporate United States is just as corrupt as Berlusconi’s Italy was, and is acting just like the Catholic Church did when they tried to kill the printing press." ‎· silpol
