I'm curious as to why my previous thread on this video was terminated?

If a mod wants to PM me explaining, I would be more than happy.

In any regard, here is the the video again:



I recommend anyone who is interested in SOPA take a good look at this video, you really should watch the whole thing. Very insightful.

Basically, the video goes on to explain how CBS, which owns Cnet.com, originally released and supported users with the ability to download file-sharing software such as torrents. They also explained how to use the software and just what songs where being illegally downloaded the most, ON THEIR WEBSITE. You will see many websites related to piracy with the cnet.com co-brand.

They then go on and sue many users for their use of these softwares in illegal ways such as piracy. As if the software could have been used in any other way. In fact, all data showed that piracy was the ONLY thing these softwares were used for.

Joel Tenenbaum, the college kid who was sued for millions, actually downloaded a few of his songs from the data-list that was supplied to him by cnet, showing which songs were the best. They had this list up on their website for over a decade.

The video goes on to make even more examples, those including support from Microsoft and others for the distribution of BitTorrent, the most popularized torrent software (one that hasn't been made illegal like Kazaa, mind you).

Quite an interested video and could possibly hold a way to help stop SOPA. I ask that you please give this video a watch. Also, I ask again, why was this video removed?

Probably because its just a copy of threads about this video that are already running.
Seriously, if you're the 5th or 6th person to say "look at this youtube video!" then that thread is gonna get canned.

i was wondering the same thing as you op, as i was in your previous thread when it was taken down. so i asked around in chat, and found out same video and topic is covered in this thread www.abovetopsecret.com...

So that is probably why.

I would think this topic will be removed as well soon.

What beats me is, they used to just lock posts, with explanation as to why in their last post in the thread. Not anymore it seems. Strange that they choose to remove it.

Yes, that is quite odd and I think the least they owe us is an explanation. At least, a private message to the OP would suffice. Regardless, I feel no regret for posting this if it has been posted. The word needs to get out.
