The Obama administration announced that it will be bringing back a piece of SOPA legislation that would make streaming copyrighted material a felony.
Can you believe this shit? When we finally get one off our backs, they try and bring up another bill AGAIN. We already said no to the first one, so why do they think that this is any better?
For those of you who don’t know what SOPA is, it was a bill back in 2011 that the govn’t tried to pass that said that posting any copyrighted music or even COVERS of said music would be considered a felony. A. FELONY.
Sign the petition below, and let’s keep our internet the way we like it.
not only the action of posting covers would be a felony, but also making fanart and writing fanfiction. Please, guys. It only takes a moment to make an account and click a button. If you’ve ever made a cover, drawn fanart, or written fanfic, or enjoyed any of the above, PLEASE go sign this petition.
signal boost this shit
GET OUT OF HERE SOPA GOD DAMN IT
Double reblogging cuz I want to get it seen.
>Drawing fanart will be a serious crime
oh boy all those 4 year olds drawing their favorite cartoons.
streaming as in “showing off”. not like livestream and stuff, though those are of course included..
by the way. the only reason obama was like “oooh no sopa sucks go away” before is because he wanted to get re-elected. now he doesn’t give a shit I bet.
this is even more serious than before I’d say.
