So, by now the whole world should be aware just what SOPA and PIPA are. A number of websites have shut down for the day (24hrs) in protest against the bills. Now, there are merits to the bill, true it can do a great many things, but the world is not like that, not all nice and proper. There are a number of ways corporations can exploit the system and literally end the internet.
Obviously I’m on the side that is against the bill. Despite not being in the U.S, the fact that they can shut down any international site on a whim is disconcerting. Reason would have stopped this bill in it’s tracks before it got this far, so seeing what happens on the day could change the course of the internet, technological advances and freedom in general.
Well, guess this is what really happens to end the world for 2012.
