In case no one knows how bad this is, if it passes, the internet as we know it will be over.
The people in power have no idea what they are doing and are being paid up to $500,000 each to vote for the bill. Not only that, no one against the
bill (such as Google or YouTube and many more) are allowed to testify in congress, but people for the billl (such as MPAA) are.
I would be surprised if the bill passed because it is such a violent affront to freedom of speech, the internet and our rights. However, the people in
power are so out of touch with technology and are getting paid so much money, that it might pass.
If you really want to get mad, consider it in this light - congressmen and women voting for this are getting paid up to $500,000 by lobbyists for big
corporations to vote AGAINST who they represent.
