The assholes are winning and fighting for more assholeness.
they came for filesonic...
when our kids will ask who hated us for our freedom, you know what to answer,
they were forced to disable sharing, clever
So, if they're going after these filesharing, copyright-infringement-factilita... sites, and taking them down, using current laws on extradition and governance, why did they need/want SOPA/PIPA ?
Filesonic, one of the Internet’s leading cyberlocker services, has taken some drastic measures following the Megaupload shutdown and arrests last week. In addition to discontinuing its affiliates rewards program and not yet paying accrued money to members, the site has disabled all sharing functionality, leaving users only with access to their own files.
yeah, who needs SOPA when everyone just bends over voluntarily ..
With all of the spam here, QBN is next!

The way I understand it...charges against Megaupload is a complicated criminal case that has been over a year in the making. SOPA would give them the power to simply block your access to these sites without having to prosecute a case against them.
SOPA would also allow them to block access to any site that links to download sites. Sites like rlslog.net and sceper.eu that make it easy to browse through the latest stuff.
That 1% are starting to get annoying.
sopa is more for wikileaks type of sites.
beginning of the end of these.
Filesonic was my favourite of these types of site :/
As I said before,
as long as they don't touch the porn no one will revolt,
they know their limits
gfxworld.ws is down too =s
