Post HELP STOP SOPA AND PIPA (the Thing That Will Kill Freedom Of Speech For Us Citizens)

I'm sure all of you are aware of SOPA and PIPA which can ruin the internet. Heck, even by posting a link to a highlights video here can get Mens Tennis Forums shut down.

I know this isn't supposed to go in the General Messages, but I want this to have the most views possible

SIGN THIS PETITION HERE: http://americancensorship.org/ or here: https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/

Thanks

These acts are only for US citizens and users so people not from the US, no woories

This is certainly a tennis issue for sure.

This thread absolutely has a place here. It is a tennis forum, and the third largest country in the world is debating having restrictions so severe that a site like this could be held culpable for minor infractions that cannot possibly be monitored 24/7.

I understand it has a place on the forum, I was merely chuckling that it had to be placed in GM.

Plus, if anyone hasn't already gone through this on Facebook/Google/Wiki/etc, then wtf. I mean like any notable site has already got this covered or is having some kind of blackout type deal to get people's attention.

Read the SOPA and PIPA guidelines if you think that it simply involves paying for your streams. SOPA and PIPA are so unbelievably restrictive that it is frightening. I'm not just commenting as a completely baffled (ashamed?) person currently living in the US either. If this same law were to be suggested in England, France, Oz, etc I would be absolutely shaking my head about how such a country could become so stifling, and such regulations certainly have an impact on both sport and sports forums.

Then please do, explain to me how SOPA/PIPA would affect my cable TV subscription.

Just hit "Stop" right before the page is about to load. Bingo. Or just use a cached version.

They must be stopped.

Thought that you were referring to the pay streams on the ATP website. There are far more matches (including futures and challenger level matches) than those that are simply available on TTC or Eurosport. As a matter of fact, TTC fails to show many matches from the Master's Series events even located within the US. Many of my friends and colleagues are players or are involved with players ranked below the top tier, and thus I have a greater desire to see more matches than your casual Federer or Roddick fan.

If you are American and are ignorant and/or happy with your daily programming and big brother, corporate-run government then by all means stay content. My understanding was that this thread was for those who have read the bills and are subsequently deeply concerned with their implications (in a sports and sports-themed internet context, of course).
