SOPA

*Image Credit:http://www.aleanjourney.com/2012/01/stop-sopa.html

 

ManyWordPress blogging communities are facing the intense amount of pressure with the current bill where SOPA was introduced to the U.S. House of Representatives by Represenative Lamar Smith on October 26, 2011. Some hosting companies opt to support SOPA while many others hosting companies opt to oppose SOPA as they believe this act violates the freedom of speech by using the internet.

To clarify most internet users what is SOPA, we will have to begin with two simple summary of these two bills as reported by 1stwebdesigner and also Brian Koenig:

 

PIPA


PIPA, is the abbreviation for Protect IP Act.

So what is PIPA?

PIPA will give U.S. corporations and the government the right to seek affirmative legal action with any website that they see as enabling copyright infringement whether of U.S. origin or not. Here is a breakdown of all that they will have the power to do.

  • Force U.S. internet providers to block access to websites deemed as enablers of copyright infringement
  • Seek legal action by suing search engines, blog sites, directories, or any site in general to have the black listed sites removed from their website
  • Having the rights to force advertising services on infringing websites, and those supporting of them, to remove them from their advertising accounts
  • Companies will also have the power to sue any new websites that get started if they believe that they are not doing a good job of preventing infringement on your website

 

SOPA


SOPA, is the abbreviation for Stop Online Piracy Act.

So what is SOPA?

SOPA will work in closely with PIPA. SOPA is nothing more so than the U.S. government and private corporations black list.Here is a breakdown of the power given to the government and private corporations.

  • The U.S. Attorney General can now seek a court order that would force search engines, advertisers, DNS providers, servers, and payment processors from having any contact with allegedly infringing websites
  • It will allow private corporations to create their own personal hit lists composed of websites they feel are breaking their copyright policies, ironically this doesn't have any odd feelings of a legal mafia at all. These companies will be able to directly contact a website's payment processors a notice to cut all off payment involvement with the targeted website. This payment processors and website of question will then have five days to act before it is simply taken down.
  • Payment processors will have the power to cut off any website they work with, as long as they can provide a strong reason of why they believe this site is violating copyrights.

These are some of the hypothetical outcome on how SOPA/PIPA can affect you:

  • Blog sites could be blocked or shut down (without any legal oversight)
  • Crippling burden on intermediary sites like YouTube and Facebook
  • Copyright holdersalreadyhave the power to take down offending material.
  • Say goodbye to innovation
  • Legal action over a child singing a song
  • U.S. Government hopes they will spark global change (other countries will follow suit)

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left." Deadpan gallows humor: the only possible response to having Courtney Love as a client. (Besides asking for a hefty retainer.) [ P6 ] Before Lauren Conrad's contract expired in March, MTV
