We oppose SOPA because it will not end online piracy nor anything you can find on the internet.
We oppose SOPA because literally, hundreds of thousands of independent and struggling music and film artists will never be able to distribute their music to fans who want to hear or see it.
We oppose SOPA because prisons aren't for people who violate copyright law, and sending someone to prison for 5 years for a copyrighted song is lunacy.
We oppose SOPA because companies like the RIAA and the MPAA should not be the world's police.
We oppose SOPA because DNS blocking is not that hard to override if you do it right. Firefox already has an add on to defeat it.
We oppose SOPA because a group of sixty and seventy-somethings who have probably never even seen a web page are mandating global laws.
We oppose SOPA because the internet is responsible for over $2 trillion of economic growth every year, and there's no way the U.S. Economy can take that kind of hit.
We oppose SOPA because music and movie pirates in most cases buy the stuff they were pirating.
We oppose SOPA because popular sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and others will be liable for things their people post and that can lead to shutting down of those sites.
We oppose SOPA because the internet is the biggest single technological advance the globe has had in the last two decades and does not belong to the RIAA or the MPAA.
But most importantly, We oppose SOPA because the United States is not like Iran. Whatever happened to "The land of the free"? Installing the same kind of censorship that cripples people in Iran and China will not deter piracy, rather it will merely leave their citizens misinformed.
We oppose SOPA... and everyone in the world should.
