You’ve probably heard the news by now, especially if you’re reading this on the Internet – there’s a bill out now that’s getting a lot of talk, most of it not good. SOPA is a bill that, if passed, could mean the end of the Internet as we know it…or at least that’s what I hear.
I honestly don’t understand much about the bill, except that there’s a lot of opposition and, if passed, means that video sharing or music downloading could become illegal. Support for this bill started out decently strong, however support seems to be dying down for SOPA after big sites such a Wikipedia protested with a temporary shut down.
I should be more concerned about SOPA, but to this 19-year-old college kid, I have other stuff to worry about. Also, I’m confident the Internet will still survive – there’s too much opposition against this bill. I will be keeping track of SOPA and I hope for the best.
I found this video below, and it helped me understand some of the details about SOPA. Check it out.
