With all this sopa/pipa business am i right in thinking that if a member of the public is caught streaming unauthorised copyrighted content with ten
such infringements within six months they could face a penalty of five years in prison?
If this is the case, how would this effect non-american citizens??
Could anybody link me to the relevant parts of this terrorist attack/bill[s] please.
I realise the full ramifications of these bills won't be felt straight away, I think the terrorists will step it up bit by bit to try and keep the
sheeple on their side.. How bad could this potentially be for the world??
I have heard that: because so much of the world has entered into Free Trade Agreements with the USA - it means that most of those countries that have
done so also had to adopt Intellectual Property laws that are in-line with the American ones to do so. So on this basis, should the US pass SOPA/PIPA,
the nations with a FTA with the US would soon follow suit with similar/equivalent laws.
Up until such a time, I don't think the US would worry about extraditing 15 year olds who upload copyrighted material, it would be too expensive.
The whole copyright system should be abolished in-favour of Creative Commons. Have you seen "RiP: A Remix Manifesto"
