President Obama Stops SOPA Piracy Bill


(AllHipHop News) President Obama has taken a stance against SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), a bill that would allow the justice department to force Internet providers and search engines to block all sites accused of copyright infringement.

For now, it appears that President Obama has stalled the controversial legislation. Read the details according to Forbes.com:

“The growing anti-SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) support that has swept through the gaming and Internet community found a very big ally today. With websites like Reddit and Wikipedia and gaming organizations like Major League Gaming prepared for a blackout on January 18th – the same day that the House Judiciary Committee hearing on HR 3261was scheduled in Washington, D.C. – President Barack Obama has stepped in and said he would not support the bill.

SOPA has been delayed, for now. The House has agreed to revisit the issue next month, but they now know the White House will veto any bill that’s not more narrowly focused.

Much to the chagrin of Hollywood, the Entertainment Software Association (which has been a backer of the bill from early on), and Internet domain company GoDaddy.com (which lost many accounts as a result of its support for the bill); SOPA has been shelved. The Motion Picture Association of America, one of the bill’s largest sponsors, is expected to regroup.”

    lol… just like how he stopped NDAA huh

    • Under Section 1021 of the NDAA, foreign nationals who
      are alleged to have committed or merely “suspected” of sympathizing with
      or providing any level of support to groups the U.S. designates as
      terrorist organization or an affiliate or associated force may be
      imprisoned without charge or trial “until the end of hostilities.” The
      law affirms the executive branch’s authority granted under the 2001
      Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) and broadens the
      definition and scope of “covered persons.” But because the “war on
      terror” is a war on a tactic, not on a state, it has no parameters or
      timetable. Consequently, this law can be used by authorities to detain
      (forever) anyone the government considers a threat to national security
      and stability – potentially even demonstrators and protesters exercising
      their First Amendment rights.

    The Greatest shit you ever Done so far Barry.. But you still a bitch ass Nigga cause i did’t forget about you Enforcing The “Patriot Act”. Trying to make people forget by halting this.

    • The Government has been our business beyond the Patriot Act for years. He did that regarding terrorism. Should he re-evaluate it? Hell yeah. But you cats sweating the Patriot Act are suckers because they are many methods the US GOVERNMENT can tap into your freedoms and take it from you. But b**** a** N****A? That’s a reach. Where was you in the 2004 election? If you didn’t vote in the 2004 election or the 2001 election, sit down and shut the hell up. If you did, your comment is warranted with the exception of the b**** a** N****a comment.
