Issue: People: Jolly Roger

Issue Summary:

Piracy is an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The people who engage in these acts are called pirates. The term has been extended to include acts committed on land, in the air, or in other bodies of water on a shore. Recently it has been extended to include crimes committed against persons travelling on the same vessel as the perpetrator.

Privateering is a private person or ship authorized by a government to attack foreign ships during wartime, a cost effective method used to mobilize offensives without having to spend public money or commit federal officers. But it should be noted that privateering is not piracy, as privateering is legally authorized by national governments.

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R. 3261, is a bill introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011. The bill is designed to help U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders fight online piracy of intellectual property.

Intellectual property (IP) is a term referring to creations of the mind for which a set of exclusive rights are recognized. IP protects intangible assets such as musical, literary and artistic works; discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs.

Steps to Reproduce: 

The internet is a system of interconnected computer networks or a series of tubes that use a standard internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to connect millions of public, private, academic, business, and government networks. This network has grown to a global scope, linked by an ever growing number of electronic, wireless, and optical devices.

This invention has become the largest advancement in human intercommunication ever, a dynamic information and commerce database accessible to anyone at anytime, and integrated into almost every facet of an average persons waking life.

Expected Results:

The internet gave birth and prosperity to a new element called criminals. Pornographers, pedophiles, thieves, and pirates quickly learned how to profit off of the internet, because the internet can't tell who is who.

QA Observations:

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), also known as H.R. 3261 will be the straw that broke the camels back. The last 30 years of life on this planet have been relatively quiet as far as people caring about things has been concerned, but initiated maintenance mode when a silver haired bond villain made a website that told everybody what the government was doing.

It started with the events in Tunisia, and slowly spread across the rest of the world. Sometimes it's peaceful  sometimes it angry, sometimes its gibberish, but the message is always the same, someone is tired of having to put up with someone else's shit, it got old.

The bill seems like the right thing to do, people are stealing, they shouldn't, and the people that make the stuff should get paid. But allowing american industry to handle the policing will prove to be the dumbest idea in the history of American government, which is a hard fought title.

The signs are hard to miss, they had the keys to the auto industry and crashed the car, had keys to the house and crashed the house. And will no doubt 404 the internet the second they get the keys. The entertainment industry cannot be responsible enough to not take advantage of this opportunity.

How long will it be till they realize they can use this bill to muscle out foreign competition on trumped up copyright charges? And would the American government stop them? Its bringing the money back to the states, perhaps this is the bailout.

This will also not change anything. salty web crawlers such as myself consider the worst things they have seen the tip of the iceberg. This bill will push regular everyday people into the deep web, and when they see it, and realize it is a biblical plane of hell bereft of humanity they will very much regret forcing people to go there to jack off.

Because real talk, people will find a way to steal entertainment and jack off as we have been doing way before the internet made it way easier to not get caught, and most of the people pushing this bill masturbate to everything they say they hate, a fact proven every year like clockwork.

Yeah, the world has been waiting for America to fuck up something everyone needs. And this is it, America invented the internet, and the world adopted it. But when America takes away the internet its not only taking it away from its own citizens, its taking it away from the whole world. And we do not have the right to make that choice for everybody, this will finally make us Rome, we graduated.

Don't do this guys, we are where Pandora and a hundred million leaders were before, and this bill may seem like a small thing, one of many issues that pass through the aisle only to get killed in the house, but think about this, even acting as if we have the power to make this call is all it takes to get people worried, proposing it will get them talking, passing it will get them to our door.

The hood has a saying, anybody can get it at anytime. We are not who we think we are, we are not special, we are not unique, we are just in charge right now. QA suggests The United States set the financial and litigious portion of this issue aside, and instead focus on what is best for the people
