Given that YouTube will often delete users' accounts just for uploading a trailer or promotional photos*, if this goes through Movie-Moron could end up getting removed from the US internet for the same.



* It's the reason the best movie reviewers on YouTube (like Mr.Black) have all left or end up doing audio-only reviews with an unrelated image.

LA Times - "Wikipedia, Reddit and about 10,000 other websites blacked out their pages Wednesday with messages warning of the dangers of the legislation and urging people to contact their congressional representatives. One such office said it had not seen a major increase in calls or emails."

Surfer apathy.



P.S. SOPA means you can get 5 years in prison for sharing 1 Michael Jackson song. His doctor only got 4 for killing him.

As of yesterday, six supporters of the act had pulled out. The internet was a flurry yesterday. First time I've ever written a congressman.

This is great -



Also, founder of MegaUpload facing up to 55 years in prison after being arrested in New Zealand -

(The average sentence for murder is 12 years.)

Dark times for the internet of the world. All stemming from the ability to buy the US Congress.

Good work on the Congress DNWilliams, I knew I could leave it up to you to sort this mess out.

That meme gave me the chills.
