SOPA Causes Anonymous To Declare Operation Blackout

(Lindsay ONeal)   Last month, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was introduced to the House of Representatives aiming to censor key aspects of the Internet in order protect the rights of the entertainment industry. The PROTECT IP Act, the Senate counterpart to SOPA, already passed earlier this year, but enforcement has been shelved for the time being due to rising concerns that it has the power to impede freedom of speech. While both bills state they are trying to help the entertainment industry sell more movies and music downloads, the effects of the bill are far-reaching and potentially devastating to Internet freedom as well as to the Internet itself.

SOPA caught the attention of Anonymous and on Wednesday they released this video which warned:
“We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. To the American Congress. Expect us.”

Well, one hour ago, Anonymous released yet another video… SPOILER ALERT:
“We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive censorship. We do not forget the denial of our free rights as human beings. To the United States government, you should’ve expected us.

  • I don’t see all that much coverage of this. Does anyone really believe that this is about “piracy”? Even if it was, are the “rights” of those who sell intellectual property above those of those who want to share information for free?
    They have a lot to be concerned with here. The internet is the one place where information can still be shared immediately, without filtering. We should be thinking of alternatives to this as they will certainly achieve control. Suppression is their game.

  • The TOR browser is pretty suspect now too. I used it and then it was not working. We need developers to start working big time on out witting this game, because right now the real truth of the matter is the nation of the USA is being put on a grid of total control. I think that this is part of a schedule they are on.
    Anon is the only good guys who understand how to fight.
    I support the OWS but I feel they are naive at best. In my city they keep trying to be buddy buddy with the police and a lot of people especially those that are poor know that is very stupid. Like do you think that people getting paid 35 dollars extra an hour by the bankers really care if they crack a mans head like they did yesterday? Only RT reported it. Not even Democracy Now. We live in a dictatorship. Blowing kisses at the pigs or practicing yoga is really stupid and doesn’t get respect.
